Esperion Therapeutics Announces Oral Presentation On ETC-1002 At 2013 Scientific Sessions Of The American Heart Association

Esperion Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ESPR), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing first-in-class, oral, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) lowering therapies for the treatment of patients with hypercholesterolemia, today announced that full results of the Phase 2 ETC-1002-006 clinical study in patients with hypercholesterolemia and a history of statin intolerance will be presented in an oral presentation session by principal investigator Paul D. Thompson, M.D., on November 18 at the 2013 Scientific Sessions of the American Heart Association in Dallas. Later in the day, the Company will webcast a briefing of the results.

The Phase 2 proof-of-concept study was designed to evaluate the LDL-C lowering efficacy, safety and tolerability of ETC-1002 compared with placebo in patients with hypercholesterolemia and a history of intolerance to two or more statins. In June 2013, Esperion previously announced positive topline results from this study, which demonstrated that ETC-1002 lowered LDL-C greater than 30 percent and was well tolerated.

Details of the oral presentation follow:

  • Title: ETC-1002 Lowered LDL-C and Was Well Tolerated in Hypercholesterolemia Patients with Statin Intolerance
  • Presenter: Paul D. Thompson, M.D., Director of Cardiology, Cardiovascular Research at Hartford Hospital, and Professor of Medicine at the University of Connecticut
  • Date/Time: Monday, November 18, 2:30-2:45 p.m. Central Time
  • Session: George L. Duff Memorial Lecture and Therapeutic Approaches for Treating Dyslipidemia
  • Location: Room D167

Webcast Briefing Details

Esperion will host a briefing on Monday, November 18, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Central Time separate from the AHA Scientific Sessions in Dallas. During the event, the Company will provide an update on its recent business progress, and the featured guest, Dr. Thompson, will provide a recap of the ETC-1002-006 full results. A live webcast of the event will be available via the Esperion website at www.esperion.com. A replay of the webcast will be available on the Company's website for 90 days following the live event.
