09:06 EDTAMRNAmarin reports new data from MARINE, ANCHOR phase 3 studies
Amarin announced the presentation of new data and related analyses from the MARINE and ANCHOR phase 3 studies. The data show that use of Vascepa capsules significantly reduced remnant-like particle cholesterol, or RLP-C, levels -- a cardiovascular risk factor -- including significant placebo-adjusted reductions in RLP-C in studied patient populations with triglyceride, or TG, levels greater than or equal to 200 mg/dL and greater than or equal to 500 mg/dL, including patients that received statin therapy. The data were presented today by Dr. Christie M. Ballantyne as part of a moderated poster session at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions in Chicago. Remnant-like particle cholesterol is an important emerging risk factor for cardiovascular disease and represents the cholesterol content of a subset of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins, or TRL, called remnants. In the fasting state this subset of TRLs is comprised of very low-density lipoproteins, or VLDL, and intermediate-density lipoproteins, or IDL, and in the non-fasting state includes these two types of lipoproteins together with chylomicron remnants.Elevated plasma TG levels are a marker of elevated remnant cholesterol and are associated with increased risk for cardiovascular disease.
