In the high dose, ApoA-I achieved a 5.6% increase with a statistical value of p=0.06. The overall ApoA-I biomarker showed a dose trending statistical significance of p=0.035. Data presented also showed that the ApoA-I and other HDL particles continued to be increasing at the end of the 12 week study. Both the 8.3% HDL cholesterol increase and the 21.1% large particle HDL increase were highly statistically significant, p<0.01 and p<0.001 respectively. These pronounced HDL related increases via ApoA-I production are important as they take place later in the RCT chain of events and strongly indicate plaque regression potential.
"These are very encouraging early findings which suggest the drug (RVX-208) is working in the established patient population that it was designed for, being patients with advanced coronary disease," said Dr. Stephen Nicholls, MBBS, PhD, Medical Director of Intravascular Ultrasound and Angiography Core Laboratories at Cleveland Clinic and Clinical Director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Cardiovascular Diagnostics and Prevention.
Donald McCaffrey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Resverlogix commented, "The study largely replicates findings previously seen in our earlier 28 day trial, more importantly these findings are now being shown in patients with coronary artery disease on optimal standard of care. The positive changes seen in this trial represent advancem
