Treatment of Hyperlipoproteinemias with Neomycin, Probucol and Tibric Acid
Neomycin was introduced for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia more than 15 years ago (1) and has been used successfully for the long-term reduction of serum cholesterol without harmful side effects (2). Its use has been fairly limited, however, though it is effective even in severe forms of familial hypercholesterolemia with tendon xanthomata in which the normalization of serum cholesterol is usually unsuccessful with dietary and drug measures and is chieved only in a part of the patients even with the ileal by-pass operation (3).
