16:30 EDTAMRNAmarin believes Vascepa well positioned in triglyceride lowering market
Amarin believes that Vascepa is well positioned to compete in the triglyceride lowering market. This is a large market which, based on market research, Amarin believes is currently underpenetrated due to limitations of existing therapies. Amarin's market research further suggests that clinicians value the data supporting Vascepa in the MARINE indication: in patients with very high (=500 mg/dL) triglyceride levels, Vascepa has been shown to lower triglycerides without increasing bad cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, or LDL-C) and with a tolerability and safety profile similar to placebo. Amarin formally launched Vascepa in the United States on January 28.

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.
