07:43 EDTAMRNAmarin receives two new patent allowances related to Vascepa
Amarin announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office, or USPTO, has published notification of Notices of Allowance for Amarin's U.S. Patent Applications Serial Numbers 13/458,496 and 13/349,157. The allowed '496 and '157 applications continue to broaden our claimed methods of reducing triglycerides consistent with the FDA approved MARINE indication for Vascepa capsules through use of a pharmaceutical composition of highly pure icosapent ethyl, or EPA. A Notice of Allowance is issued after the USPTO makes a determination that a patent can be granted from an application. The issued patents would have terms that expire no earlier than in 2030. After issuance, Amarin plans to list these patents in the FDA's Approved Drug Products with Therapeutic Equivalence Evaluations, or Orange Book.

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.
