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.

Not for use jlis residents of VT, nor medical professionals licensed in VT. Patients were randomly assigned 1: On stable background lipid-lowering therapy, the median [Q1, Q3] fasting TG was Nat Clin Pract Cardiovasc Med.

Effects of EPA on coronary artery disease studyy hypercholesterolemic patients with multiple risk factors: Each product is highly purified EPA. Overall adverse event rates were similar across treatment jdlis.

Offer good through December 31, The study was registered at ClinicalTrials. P values for Lp-PLA 2a secondary endpoint, were adjusted for multiple comparisons; all other endpoints are exploratory. 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. Watch the national commercial.

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. Adverse events and serious adverse events leading to study drug discontinuation were similar to placebo.


We encourage you to check that for yourself. EPA is a promising treatment for prevention of major coronary events, and especially non-fatal studt events, in Japanese hypercholesterolaemic patients.

Other cardiovascular outcomes trials that studied fish oil or mixtures of omega-3 acids that include the omega-3 tsudy, DHA, have reported negligible impact on cardiovascular events. 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.

At mean follow-up of 4. Analysis was by intention-to-treat. Am J Cardiovasc Drugs.

Most patients at baseline were taking at least one other cardiovascular medication including anti-platelet agents In patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia, the effect of VASCEPA on cardiovascular mortality or morbidity or on the risk of pancreatitis has not been determined.

Only subjects with non-missing baseline and week 12 values are included. 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 change was unlikely to explain the observed benefit of VASCEPA over placebo.

The trial population was By working together 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.

About Amarin

Serum LDL cholesterol was not a significant factor in a reduction of risk for major coronary events. United States Food and Drug Administration et al. While overall adverse event rates were similar across treatment groups Numerically more serious adverse events related to bleeding; overall rates were low 2.

This focus includes a commitment to research and education in cardiovascular health. This offer is not valid for those patients under 18 years of age or patients whose plans do not permit use of a copay card.

No head-to-head cardiovascular outcomes study of EPA vs a mixture of omega-3 acids has been conducted.

Biologic plausibility, cellular effects, and molecular tsudy of eicosapentaenoic stucy EPA in atherosclerosis.

Void where prohibited by law, taxed, or restricted. Regarding prior diagnoses of cardiovascular disease, The median change in LDL-C was 3. N Engl J Med. Estimated hazard ratios of clinical endpoints stratified by prevention stratum; Saito et al, Figure 3: Curves were visually truncated at 5. The changes in the major lipoprotein lipid parameters for the groups receiving VASCEPA plus statin or placebo plus statin are shown in the table.
