OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the biosynthesis of cholesterol and cholestanol, and measure the turnover of individual sterols and bile acids in patients with cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis before and after a cholesterol- and cholestanol-free diet.
II. Assess the biosynthesis of cholesterol and cholestanol, and measure the turnover of individual sterols and bile acids in these patients before and after lovastatin and chenodeoxycholic acid.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Cerebrotendinous Xanthomatosis||Drug: chenodeoxycholic acid Drug: lovastatin||Phase 2|
PROTOCOL OUTLINE: Following a 2-week baseline assessment, patients participate in a feeding study for up to 3 weeks. The diet is free of cholesterol and cholestanol.
For the next 4 weeks, patients return to their typical diet and are medicated with daily lovastatin and chenodeoxycholic acid.
The feeding study is repeated for an additional 3 weeks, with the patient taking either lovastatin or chenodeoxycholic acid.
