Clinical Trial 2742

Baltimore, MD 21224

Study Summary:

This research is being done to understand why heart disease occurs in people with high levels of the good, healthy cholesterol (HDL). The reason for this study is to find out if people with high levels of HDL might have a problem that leads to low levels of the HDL receptor (SR-BI). The HDL receptor is an important protein in your body that helps to remove cholesterol from your bloodstream. In some people there might not be enough SR-BI. This could lead to high levels of HDL cholesterol in the blood. This could make you think that the high levels are good for you when the opposite might be true.

Qualified Participants Must:

• People with a cholesterol test that shows high HDL cholesterol (levels above 60 mg/dL) are able to be in the study.

Qualified Participants May Receive:

Monetary compensation upon completion of study. Free parking
