Sanofi And Regeneron Announce Publication Of Positive Phase 2 Results For Lipid-Lowering PCSK9 Antibody In The Lancet

HeFH is an inherited disease that is characterized by very high LDL-C levels and familial patterns of increased risk of premature coronary artery disease and heart disease-related death due to these elevated LDL-C levels. The majority of these patients have inherited abnormalities in the gene for the LDL receptor. This results in a decreased ability to clear LDL-C from the blood and consequently leads to high levels of LDL-C in the blood that can accelerate the initiation and progression of atherosclerosis. [ 6] As a result of the severe elevations in LDL-C, many of these patients cannot reach treatment goals with existing therapies. A recent analysis of 1,249 heFH patients found that only 21% were able to achieve a treatment goal of <2.5 mmol/L (<97 mg/dL). [ 7] It is estimated that 1 in 500 people worldwide carries a genetic mutation that is responsible for heFH. [6]
