Clinical Trials for Niaspan

Trial ID Title Status Sponsor Phase Summary
NCT00046267 Niacin for Treatment of Elevated Cholesterol and Triglycerides in HIV-Infected Patients Completed National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) N/A The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, efficacy, and tolerability of extended-release niacin (Niaspan) in improving the level of fats in the blood of HIV-infected patients.
NCT00062556 Effect of Niacin ER/Lovastatin on Peak Walking Time & Claudication Onset Time in Patients With Intermittent Claudication Completed Kos Pharmaceuticals Phase 3 The purpose of this study is to evaluate if Niacin ER/Lovastatin, at two different doses, compared to diet control (this group will receive a tablet containing 50 mg. of immediate-release niacin) is a safe and effective medicine in subjects with leg pain caused by a narrowing of their leg arteries, a condition called intermittent claudication. At least 366 subjects with leg pain caused by a narrowing of their leg arteries will participate in this study. Niacin ER/Lovastatin is a combination of two FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration) approved cholesterol modifying medications: Niaspan® (extended-release niacin) and lovastatin, a statin (the same medicine found in Mevacor®). Niacin ER/Lovastatin was approved by the FDA under the name of Advicor® for use in the treatment of elevated cholesterol. The use of Niacin ER/Lovastatin in the treatment of peripheral arterial disease and symptomatic relief of intermittent claudication is considered investigational. An investigational use is one that is not approved by the FDA.
NCT00071266 The Dose Response of Niacin ER/Lovastatin on Peak Walking Time (PWT) in Patients With Intermittent Claudication - TROPIC Completed Kos Pharmaceuticals Phase 3 The purpose of this study is to compare the dose response and safety of Niacin ER/Lovastatin, Niaspan® and Lovastatin with each other, in subjects with leg pain caused by a narrowing of their leg arteries. At least 870 subjects, with leg pain caused by a narrowing of their leg arteries will take part in this study. Both Niaspan and lovastatin (Mevacor®) are approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat high cholesterol. Niacin ER/Lovastatin (Advicor®), a combination of these two drugs, is also approved by the FDA to treat high cholesterol. The use of Niacin ER/Lovastatin to treat narrowing of leg arteries and relieve “intermittent claudication” (leg pain caused by narrowing of the arteries in the leg) is considered investigational. An investigational use is one that is not approved by the FDA.
NCT00079638 Comparative Efficacy Evaluation of Lipids When Treated With Niaspan & Statin or Other Lipid-Modifying Therapies-COMPELL Completed Kos Pharmaceuticals Phase 4 The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of first-line treatment using Niaspan (an extended release version of niacin) and statins versus other drugs that lower lipid levels, in subjects with elevated fat levels in their blood (dyslipidemia). Statins are a class of medication that is often prescribed to patients who need to lower their cholesterol levels.
NCT00108485 Study of the Use of Niaspan for Treatment of Dyslipidemia in Diabetic Nephropathy Terminated University of Miami Phase 3 The primary purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness and tolerability of Niaspan® to improve the levels of blood fats ("good" and "bad" cholesterol and triglyceride levels) in people who have kidney damage due to diabetes. A secondary goal is to test whether Niaspan® slows down further development of kidney damage.
NCT00120289 Niacin Plus Statin to Prevent Vascular Events Terminated Abbott Phase 3 The purpose of this study is to determine whether raising "good cholesterol" with a drug based on the vitamin niacin, while lowering "bad cholesterol" with a statin drug, can prevent more heart disease than the statin alone.
NCT00120289 Niacin Plus Statin to Prevent Vascular Events Terminated National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) Phase 3 The purpose of this study is to determine whether raising "good cholesterol" with a drug based on the vitamin niacin, while lowering "bad cholesterol" with a statin drug, can prevent more heart disease than the statin alone.
