Brief Summary

Funding Source - FDA OOPD

This study is being done to find out whether an investigational (not approved by FDA ) drug called SLx-4090 or Orlistat (FDA approved medication for weight loss) when given alone or in combination can treat the high blood fat (elevated triglycerides)levels found in the condition Type 1 Hyperlipoproteinemia (T1HLP) better or more safely than low fat diet alone, the current standard medical care.

It is also not clear whether Orlistat, that is FDA approved for weight loss, is effective in lowering blood fat levels in patients with Type 1 hyperlipoproteinemia (T1HLP). The researchers are interested in learning whether any one of these drugs when given alone or in combination is more effective and safe in treating T1HLP.

Detailed Description

Type I hyperlipoproteinemia is a rare, autosomal recessive metabolic disorder characterized by extreme hypertriglyceridemia due to a deficiency in lipoprotein lipase or related proteins. Treatment of these patients is challenging as triglyceride-lowering medications are ineffective. A low fat diet is helpful, however, despite good dietary compliance, some patients continue to have severe hypertriglyceridemia and recurrent pancreatitis which can be life threatening. Therefore, we wish to investigate whether inducing dietary fat malabsorption or inhibiting chylomicron formation will cause further lowering of serum triglycerides (TG) beyond the effect of limiting dietary fat intake.

We will study the efficacy and safety of an inhibitor of intestinal lipase (Orlistat) and an intestinal-specific inhibitor of microsomal triglyceride transport protein (MTP) involved in the assembly and secretion of chylomicrons (SLx-4090), alone and in combination, for reducing serum triglyceride levels in patients with Type I hyperlipoproteinemia. We plan to enroll 20 patients with Type I hyperlipoproteinemia in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over trial. After a baseline evaluation, the subjects will be randomly assigned to placebo/placebo, Orlistat/placebo, SLx-4090/placebo or Orlistat/SLx-4090 for the duration of four weeks followed by a one week wash out period. During the last week of each study period, fasting blood samples will be drawn for three consecutive days for serum lipids and chemistry panel. The primary endpoint will be serum triglycerides; the secondary endpoint variables will be fasting and postprandial serum chylomicron-TG levels, postprandial serum TG levels during a meal tolerance test and retinyl palmitate levels during a meal tolerance test. Repeated measures analysis of variance will be used for statistical comparisons.

Our results may help in designing novel therapeutic approaches for patients with Type 1 hyperlipoproteinemia.
