  • Recent NIPH Clinical Trials:Efficacy of the nutrients supplement 'AMP01' for the fatigue of the hemodialysis patients
  • Inhalation Risk:A nuisance-causing concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly when dispersed, especially if powdered.
  • Effects of Short Term Exposure:The substance is mildly irritating to the eyes.
  • Applications and Importance Biological, Nutritional, and Food Safety Applications: Nicotinic acid (NA) serves as a basic vitamin B3.
  • Antiatherosclerotic Activity Prevention and Treatment of Atherosclerosis: Nicotinic acid (niacin) has been utilized for decades for this purpose.
    Antidyslipidemic Effects: Its antiatherogenic activity is believed to result from these effects.
  • Dual Potency Vitamin Potency: Effective in milligram doses as a vitamin.
    Lipid Drug Potency: Potent in gram doses as a broad-spectrum lipid drug.
  • Historical Background Discovery: In the 20th century, Rudolf Altschul discovered the cholesterol-lowering effects of nicotinic acid.
    Vitamin Effects: Demonstrated in the early 20th century.
    Lipid Effects: Altschul's studies showed lipid-lowering effects, including inhibition of lipid deposits and atheromatosis.
  • Mechanism of Action Inhibition of Lipolysis: Nicotinic acid inhibits fat-mobilizing lipolysis in adipose tissue, leading to a decrease in plasma-free fatty acids (FFA).
    Coenzyme Precursor: Nicotinic acid and nicotinamide are precursors to the coenzyme nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), crucial in fuel metabolite oxidation.
  • Pharmacological Effects Lipid and Lipoprotein Modulation: Pharmacological doses induce significant changes in plasma lipid and lipoprotein levels.
    HDL Cholesterol Increase: Nicotinic acid strongly increases plasma high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels.
  • Cardiovascular Benefits Atherosclerosis Progression Reduction: Nicotinic acid alone or in combination with LDL cholesterol-lowering drugs can reduce atherosclerosis progression and cardiovascular event risk.
    Receptor Discovery: The identification of the G protein鈥揷oupled receptor GPR109A has enhanced our understanding of nicotinic acid's effects.
