Biochem/physiol Actions

Torcetrapib is a Cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) inhibitor. CETP normally transfers cholesterol from HDL cholesterol to very low density or low density lipoproteins (VLDL or LDL). Inhibition of this process results in higher HDL levels (the "good" cholesterol-containing particle) and reduces LDL levels (the "bad" cholesterol). Unfortunately clinical trials were stopped because of excessive all cause mortality. Reasons are still being investigated, but may be related to some off target effects such as an increase in aldosterone secretion not found in some other CETP inhibitors.
