Eligible patients include those who participate in commercial insurance, through a healthcare exchange, or pay cash. Offer good through December 31, Cardiovascular risk reduction with icosapent ethyl for hypertriglyceridemia [published online ahead of print November 10, ].
N Engl J Med. Prespecified hierarchical testing of other secondary endpoints revealed significant reductions in the following:. The Kaplan-Meier estimates of the cumulative incidence of the primary and key secondary composite endpoints over time helis shown in Figure 1 and Figure 2 below. CI denotes confidence interval.
Curves were visually truncated at 5. Mineral oil placebo consideration tsudy analysis. While the DMC noted variation in LDL-C measurements in both arms and that a small physiological effect of mineral oil might be possible, the DMC concluded that it was not possible to determine if the LDL-C sfudy in the placebo arm was a natural increase over time or due to the mineral oil, they found no apparent effect on outcomes and found that this small change was unlikely to explain the observed benefit of VASCEPA over placebo.
The median change in LDL-C was 3. We encourage you to check that for yourself. Other cardiovascular outcomes trials that studied fish oil or mixtures of omega-3 acids that include the omega-3 acid, DHA, have reported negligible impact on cardiovascular events. United States Food and Drug Administration et al. The changes in the major lipoprotein lipid parameters for the groups receiving VASCEPA plus statin or placebo plus statin are shown in the table.
Only subjects with non-missing baseline and week 12 values are included. P values for Lp-PLA 2a secondary endpoint, were adjusted for multiple comparisons; all other endpoints are exploratory.
This information on inflammatory markers cannot be used in isolation.
Each product is highly purified EPA. Adapted from Yokoyama et al, Figure 3: Estimated hazard ratios of clinical endpoints stratified by prevention stratum; Saito et al, Figure 3: Kaplan-Meier estimates of the incidence of the primary endpoint of coronary events occurring in the group of all patients. GISSI-P is an open-label outcomes trial 1 g omega-3 fatty acid mixtureconducted in Italy, that supported the hypothesis that omega-3 fatty acids likely exert their cardioprotective effects through nonlipid-mediated stkdy.
GISSI-P did not suggest an effect on the incidence of studdy cardiovascular events and the effects of omega-3 fatty acids on lipids, including serum TGs, were negligible. The omega-3 fatty acid mixtures studied in such other outcomes trials were primarily comprised of EPA and docosahexaenoic acid DHA typically, approximately mg total per 1 gram capsule and also typically included a number of other omega-3 and omega-6 acids, as well as other constituents.
No head-to-head stydy outcomes study of EPA vs a mixture of omega-3 acids has been conducted. Icosapent ethyl, a pure ethyl ester of eicosapentaenoic acid: Am J Cardiovasc Drugs. Effects of EPA on coronary artery disease in hypercholesterolemic patients with multiple risk factors: Incremental effects of eicosapentaenoic acid on cardiovascular events in statin-treated patients with coronary artery disease.
Biologic plausibility, cellular jelsi, and molecular mechanisms of eicosapentaenoic acid EPA in atherosclerosis. Overview of prescription omega-3 fatty acid products for hypertriglyceridemia. Dietary supplementation with n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E after myocardial infarction: Yes No By clicking yes, you are certifying you are also a US resident.
Patients were randomly assigned 1: The median follow-up duration was 58 months 4. The median age at baseline was 64 years range: The trial population was Regarding prior diagnoses of cardiovascular disease, Selected additional baseline risk factors included hypertension Patients enrolled were treated with statin therapy at baseline with most Most patients at baseline were taking at least jeils other jlis medication including anti-platelet agents On stable background lipid-lowering therapy, the median [Q1, Q3] fasting TG was Overall adverse event rates were similar across treatment groups.
Adverse events and serious adverse events leading to study drug discontinuation were similar to placebo. The rate of treatment-emergent serious adverse events for bleeding was 2. The primary, secondary, and tertiary adjudicated endpoint analyses were validated by the data monitoring committee independent statistician.
VASCEPA® (icosapent ethyl) | REDUCE-IT™ Results Announced
Further detailed data sutdy by Amarin and regulatory authorities will continue and take several months to complete and record The final evaluation of the totality of the efficacy and safety data from REDUCE-IT may include stufy or all of the following, as well as other considerations: These observations suggest that at least some of the impact of VASCEPA on the reduction in ischemic events may be explained by metabolic effects other than triglyceride lowering.
In patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia, the effect of VASCEPA on cardiovascular mortality or morbidity or on the risk of pancreatitis has not been determined. P values from Wilcoxon rank sum test.
