Brief Summary:
Ezetimibe has become the treatment choice for patients with sitosterolemia. Ezetimibe is an inhibitor of cholesterol absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. The purpose of this study is to determine if ezetimibe improves whole body plant sterol and cholesterol homeostasis.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Sitosterolemia Drug: Ezetimibe Not Applicable

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 8 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: Assessment of Sterol Metabolism in Sitosterolemia: A Pilot Study of Patients Treated With Ezetimibe
Study Start Date : April 2012
Actual Primary Completion Date : August 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2016

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Ezetimibe
Compare on and off ezetimibe
Drug: Ezetimibe
10mg ezetimibe/day, at least 4 months

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Plasma cholesterol level [ Time Frame: 8 months ]
    Plasma cholesterol level will be assessed by GC

  2. Plasma sitosterol level [ Time Frame: 8 months ]
    Plasma plant sterol assessment using GC

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Cholesterol absorption [ Time Frame: 4 month ]
    Use stable isotope technique to assess cholesterol absorption

  2. Cholesterol synthesis [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
    Use of stable isotope to assess cholesterol synthesis.
