Abbott Receives FDA Approval for SIMCOR(R) (Niaspan(R) / simvastatin), a Novel Combination Medicine for Comprehensive Cholesterol Management

lipid improvements beyond simvastatin 20-mg treated baseline, with additional LDL reductions of 12 percent and an additional 21 percent HDL increase compared to a 7 percent decrease in LDL and an 8 percent increase in HDL with simvastatin 20mg alone. Furthermore, SIMCOR reduced triglycerides by an additional 27 percent compared to 15 percent with simvastatin 20mg alone.

SIMCOR was generally well tolerated by patients in clinical studies. Six percent of patients discontinued therapy due to flushing, the most commonly reported side effect of SIMCOR and niacin-based therapies. Flushing can be minimized by taking aspirin or an NSAID 30 minutes prior to taking the medication at bedtime. Flushing may subside over several weeks of consistent SIMCOR use.

"With SIMCOR, doctors now have a new option for helping patients reach their LDL and HDL cholesterol treatment goals with a combination of two proven therapies," said Eugene Sun, M.D., vice president of Global Clinical Development for Abbott. "Abbott is committed to bringing forward new cholesterol therapies, and SIMCOR represents a new treatment option for patients in Abbott's rapidly expanding portfolio of cholesterol treatments for lipid disorders."

The American Heart Association, National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) and American College of Cardiology recommend more aggressive treatment of HDL to reduce cardiovascular risk. Cholesterol and other lipids can build up in the bloodstream forming plaque and restricting blood flow, which can lead to heart disease. According to NCEP guidelines, a reduction in LDL of 1 percent is associated with a 1 percent reduction in heart disease risk. Additionally, raising HDL by 1 point is associated with a 2 percent heart disease risk reduction.

Abbott is committed to the continued research of its products and has sponsored the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute's AIM-HIGH outcomes study. The study is designed to evaluate the effects of niacin ext
