Subject: E-DRUG: PPG - Drug from Cuba?

Dear members:

Recently, somebody asked me about efficacy of PPG. PPG is a Cuban
drug (PPG-5). It's a mixture of superior primary alifatic alcohols,
its most important compound is 1-octacosanol. It is indicated to
reduce serum level of cholesterol and LDL. In each box is a page
with the characteristics of PPG. Since this product is sold in my
country (Venezuela), I'd like to know if somebody has strong evidence
about this drug. I've never seen any report in Medline about it.
Please, could you help me?

Thank you very much in advance.
