Genzyme And Isis Announce FDA Approval Of KYNAMRO™ (mipomersen Sodium) Injection For The Treatment Of Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia

KYNAMRO may cause serious side effects, including liver problems. A doctor should be informed of any liver problems, including liver problems while taking other medicines, or if a patient has any of these symptoms of liver problems while taking KYNAMRO: nausea, vomiting, fever, loss of appetite, being (or feeling) more tired than usual, yellowing of eyes or skin, dark urine, itching, or stomach pain.

Alcohol may increase levels of hepatic fat and induce or exacerbate liver injury. It is recommended that patients taking KYNAMRO should consume no more than one alcoholic drink per day.

Caution should be exercised when KYNAMRO is used with other medications known to have potential for hepatotoxicity.

KYNAMRO should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed. Females who become pregnant during KYNAMRO therapy should notify their healthcare provider.

Safety and effectiveness have not been established in pediatric patients.

KYNAMRO is not recommended in patients with severe renal impairment, clinically significant proteinuria, or on renal dialysis.

The safety and effectiveness of KYNAMRO as an adjunct to LDL apheresis have not been established; therefore, the use of KYNAMRO as an adjunct to LDL apheresis is not recommended.


KYNAMRO is contraindicated in the following conditions:
  • Moderate or severe hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh B or C) or active liver disease, including unexplained persistent elevations of serum transaminases.
  • Patients with a known hypersensitivity to any component of this product.


In clinical trials the most commonly-reported adverse reactions were injection site reactions occurring in 84% of patients receiving KYNAMRO versus 33% of placebo treated patients. The most common injection site reactions were erythema (59%), pain (56%), hematoma (32%), pruritus (29%), swelling (18%) and discoloration (17%). Injection site reactions did not occur with every injection but resulted in discontinuation of therapy in 5% of patients in pooled phase 3 trials.
