Anacetrapib, Merck’s New Cholestrol Drug

Anacetrapib, Merck’s New Cholestrol Drug, shows huge increase in good cholestrol and dramatic drop in bad cholestrol (via physorg) and very few side effects.

The early results are very encouraging. Now for a long round of testing.

Niacin is used for the same purpose but causes flushing in many people.
