Only subjects with non-missing baseline and week 12 values are included. Biologic plausibility, cellular effects, and molecular mechanisms of eicosapentaenoic acid EPA in atherosclerosis. The median age at baseline was 64 years range: 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.

VASCEPA® (icosapent ethyl) | REDUCE-IT™ Results Announced

Nat Clin Pract Cardiovasc Med. Further detailed data assessment 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 some or all of the following, as well as other considerations: Eligible patients include those who participate in commercial insurance, through a healthcare exchange, or pay cash.

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.

Overall adverse event rates were similar across treatment groups. The trial population was Icosapent ethyl, a pure ethyl ester of eicosapentaenoic acid: The median change in LDL-C was 3.

About Amarin

No head-to-head cardiovascular outcomes study of EPA vs a mixture of omega-3 acids has been conducted. Prespecified hierarchical testing of other secondary endpoints revealed significant reductions in the following:.

Not for use by residents of VT, nor medical professionals licensed in VT. Mineral oil placebo consideration and analysis. This focus includes a commitment to research and education in cardiovascular health. N Engl J Med.


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. 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 increase 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 jeis was unlikely to explain the observed benefit of VASCEPA over placebo.

Sudden cardiac death and coronary death did not differ between groups. EPA is a promising treatment for prevention of major coronary events, and especially non-fatal coronary jeliss, in Japanese hypercholesterolaemic patients. By browsing our website, you agree to our use of cookies. Serum LDL cholesterol was not a significant factor in a reduction of risk for major coronary events.

Regarding prior diagnoses of cardiovascular disease, The median follow-up duration was 58 months 4. Am J Cardiovasc Drugs. We aimed to test the hypothesis that long-term use of eicosapentaenoic acid EPA is effective for prevention of major coronary events in hypercholesterolaemic patients in Japan who consume a large amount of fish.

United States Food and Drug Administration et al. We encourage you to check that for yourself.

The primary, secondary, and tertiary adjudicated endpoint analyses were validated by the data monitoring committee independent statistician. P values from Wilcoxon rank sum test. Patients enrolled were treated with statin therapy at baseline with most Selected additional baseline risk factors included stduy This site uses cookies to give you the best possible experience.

Cardiovascular risk reduction with icosapent ethyl for hypertriglyceridemia [published online ahead of print November 10, ]. Kaplan-Meier estimates of the incidence of the primary endpoint of coronary events occurring in the jelid of all patients. The Kaplan-Meier estimates of the cumulative incidence of the primary and key secondary composite endpoints over time are shown in Figure 1 and Figure 2 below.


The study was registered at ClinicalTrials. By working studu and supporting these efforts, inside and outside of the company, Amarin can empower, share and learn as it strides toward the unified goal of excellence—and beyond.

Adverse events and serious adverse events leading to study drug discontinuation were similar to placebo. Offer good through December 31, CI denotes confidence interval.

This information on inflammatory markers cannot be used in isolation. Estimated hazard ratios of clinical endpoints stratified by prevention stratum; Saito et al, Figure 3: Analysis was by intention-to-treat.

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.

Overview of prescription omega-3 fatty acid products for hypertriglyceridemia. The rate of treatment-emergent serious adverse events for bleeding was 2. 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.

The primary endpoint was any major coronary event, including sudden cardiac death, fatal and non-fatal myocardial infarction, and other non-fatal events including unstable angina pectoris, angioplasty, stenting, or coronary artery bypass grafting. GISSI-P did not suggest an effect on the incidence of nonfatal cardiovascular events and the effects of omega-3 fatty acids on lipids, including serum TGs, were negligible.
