NCT00465088

  Purpose

To demonstrate that niacin ER and simvastatin (NS) tablets, when compared to atorvastatin (Lipitor®; Pfizer, Inc.), has superior high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) elevating effects at Week 12 in subjects with type II hyperlipidemia or mixed dyslipidemia who are currently off lipid-modifying therapy. This was a prospective, randomized, open-label, blinded endpoint (PROBE) study.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent Change in High-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C) From Baseline to Week 12 [ Time Frame: From baseline to Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    (Week 12 HDL-C minus baseline HDL-C) x 100/baseline HDL-C


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent Change in HDL-C From Baseline to Week 8 [ Time Frame: From baseline to Week 8 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    (Week 8 HDL-C minus baseline HDL-C) x 100/baseline HDL-C

  • Percent Change in Non-HDL-C From Baseline to Week 8 [ Time Frame: From baseline to Week 8 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    (Week 8 non-HDL-C minus baseline non-HDL-C) x 100/baseline non-HDL-C

  • Percent Change in Non-HDL-C From Baseline to Week 12 [ Time Frame: From baseline to Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    (Week 12 non-HDL-C minus baseline non-HDL-C) x 100/baseline non-HDL-C

  • Percent Change in Low-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C) From Baseline to Week 12 [ Time Frame: From baseline to Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    (Week 12 LDL-C minus baseline LDL-C) x 100/baseline LDL-C

  • Percent Change in Triglycerides From Baseline to Week 12 [ Time Frame: From baseline to Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    (Week 12 triglycerides minus baseline triglycerides) x 100/baseline triglycerides

  • Percent Change in LDL-C:HDL-C Ratio [ Time Frame: From baseline to Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    (Week 12 LDL-C:HDL-C ratio minus baseline LDL-C:HDL-C ratio) x 100/baseline LDL-C:HDL-C ratio

  • Percent Change in Total Cholesterol From Baseline to Week 12 [ Time Frame: From baseline to Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    (Week 12 total cholesterol minus baseline total cholesterol) x 100/baseline total cholesterol

  • Percent Change in Total Cholesterol:HDL-C Ratio [ Time Frame: From baseline to Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    (Week 12 total cholesterol:HDL-C ratio minus baseline total cholesterol:HDL-C ratio) x 100/baseline total cholesterol:HDL-C ratio

  • Percent Change in Lipoprotein A From Baseline to Week 12 [ Time Frame: From baseline to Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    (Week 12 lipoprotein A minus baseline lipoprotein A) x 100/baseline lipoprotein A

  • Percentage of Subjects Meeting With HDL-C >/= 40 mg/dL at Week 12 [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percentage of Subjects Meeting National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel (NCEP ATP) III Goal for LDL-C at Week 12 [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    For high-risk patients (coronary heart disease or equivalent), LDL-C < 100 mg/dL and non-HDL-C < 130 mg/dL; for moderate risk patients (having 2 risk factors), LDL-C < 130 mg/dL and non-HDL-C < 160 mg/dL; for low-risk patients (having 0 or 1 risk factor): LDL-C < 160 mg/dL and non-HDL-C < 190 mg/dL.

  • Percentage of Subjects With Triglycerides < 150 mg/dL at Week 12 [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percentage of Subjects With HDL-C >/= 40 mg/dL, LDL-C Meeting NCEP ATP III Goal, and Triglycerides < 150 mg/dL at Week 12 [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    NCEP ATP III goals for LDL-C are as follows: For high-risk patients, LDL-C < 100 mg/dL; for moderate risk patients, LDL-C < 130 mg/dL; for low-risk patients: LDL-C < 160 mg/dL. High-risk means coronary heart disease or risk equivalents; moderate risk means having at least 2 risk factors; low-risk means having no or 1 risk factor.
