(previously ISIS 301012, trade name Kynamro)

Is a cholesterol-reducing drug
It is an antisense oligonucleotide inhibitor of apoB100

Crosses the hepatocyte & nuclear membranes that

targets the m-RNA for apoB100 apolipoprotein B

Is significally distributed to liver where apoB100 is

Effect of a monoclonal antibody to PCSK-9, REGN727/SAR236553, to reduce low-density lipoprotein cholesterol in patients with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia on stable statin dose with or without ezetimibe therapy: a phase 2 randomised controlled trial

LANCET July 2012, Pages 2936

Multicentre, randomised, placebo-controlled phase 2 trial done at 16 lipid clinics in the USA and Canada (Jan 18, 2011& Nov 7, 2011) Adults with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia and LDL-C concentrations of 26 mmol/L or higher on stable diet and statin dose, with or without ezetimibe Pts were randomly assigned to receive REGN727 150 mg, 200 mg, or 300 mg / 4 weeks, or 150 mg/ 2 weeks, or placebo / 2 weeks (ratio 1:1:1:1:1) Randomisation was stratified by concomitant use of ezetimibe at baseline Blinding was maintained by administration of placebo alternating with REGN727 for the groups of 4 week dosing The primary endpoint was mean % in LDL-C from baseline at week 12 Was analysed in the modified intention-to-treat population with an analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) model with treatment group

Phase 3 study of lomitapide (AEGR-733) to lower LDL-c for the treatment of pts with (HoFH )
November 16, 2009 Aegerion Pharmaceuticals

22 pts enrolled in the ongoing Phase 3 trial 14 of the pts for a min of 26 & 7 pts for 56 weeks Pts are titrated >to a max tolerated dose of lomitapide (up to 60 mg/day) The 14 pts treated with lomitapide for 26 weeks experienced a mean reduction in LDL-C of 49% on top of maximum tolerated background therapy. Average baseline LDL-C levels in this trial were 351 mg/dl &6 of the 14 patients achieved an LDL-C level below 100 mg/dl At 26 weeks, pts experienced a modest in hepatic fat from 1.0% to 7.8% All pts that have reached 56 weeks have seen their hepatic fat levels 7% at 56 weeks Mild -moderate gastrointestinal adverse events have been the most commonly reported side effect 2 of the 14 pts experienced transaminase which required a dose None of the ps required drug discontinuation due to liver function test elevations

Lomitapide (INN, marketed as Juxtapid) is a

drug for the treatment of HoFH

It has been tested in clinical trials as single

treatment and in combinations with atorvastatin, ezetimibe & fenofibrate

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

approved lomitapide on 21 December 2012, as an orphan drug to reduce LDL-C, total cholesterol, apolipoprotein B, & non-HDL-C in patients with (HoFH)

Risk of DM development during statin treatment

Recent meta-analyses have identified a slightly increased risk of development of DM in pts treated with statins.

Meta-analysis of 13 statin trials (n=91,140), 9% increase in incident DM during 4 yrs follow-up in pts receiving a statin versus placebo or standard care. In absolute terms, this equates to one additional case of
However, clinicians need to bear in mind that this absolute risk is low when compared with the reduction in coronary events achieved with statin therapy. Moreover, a definitive mechanism of action has not yet been elucidated
