My name is Marc Scholten and I am a molecular biologist working for a company that offers services related to clinical drug trials. These trials or studies are mandatory tests on newly developed drugs, conducted with patients who have given their prior informed consent.
I have a long-standing interest - both professional and private - in atherosclerosis and lipid/cholesterol lowering medication. On Prolipid.com, I try to present the current medical knowledge on cholesterol, its harmful effects and how it can be controlled. I try to do so in a neutral, strictly scientific way, giving links to clinical studies or government-sponsored health sites wherever appropriate.
ProLipid.com is a private, non-commercial site (although it contains some advertisement, which is clearly marked as such). I am not paid by or otherwise affiliated to any company manufacturing or selling cholesterol-controlling drugs or supplements. I am neither strictly pro-drugs nor strictly against them when it comes to cholesterol control. I think the question of what is best must be decided individually, in consultation with a physicist or other qualified health counselor.
The information contained on ProLipid.com reflects the current medical knowledge on cholesterol and cholesterol control, to the best of my knowledge. Please don't use this information to self-diagnose or self-treat any suspected disease, including elevated cholesterol-levels. Please consult your doctor if you have any health-concerns, or need an individual advice on a health-related topic.
Thanks for your interest
