A High-Density Lipoprotein Raising Drug That Has a Lower Discontinuation Rate Than That of Extended Release Niaspan Would Earn a 20 Percent Patient Share in the Dyslipidemia Drug Market
Date:7/29/2008

Crestor Will Remain the Clinical Gold Standard Drug Through 2016, According

to a New Report from Decision Resources

WALTHAM, Mass., July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms focusing on pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that a drug that raises high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and has a lower discontinuation rate than that of Abbott's Niaspan ER (extended release) would earn a 20 percent patient share in the treatment of dyslipidemia, according to surveyed endocrinologists.

The new report entitled Dyslipidemia: Blockbuster Potential for Agents that Target HDL finds that although lowering low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels is at the forefront of treating dyslipidemia, researchers are now aware that increasing high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels may also help reduce cardiovascular risk.

The report also finds that surveyed endocrinologists do not expect any therapy under development to displace AstraZeneca's Crestor as the Decision Resources' proprietary clinical gold standard for dyslipidemia through 2016. Although some therapies in development hold promise, most have efficacy, safety and tolerability, and/or delivery features that merit inferior scores compared with Crestor.

"For the majority of end points, endocrinologists we surveyed perceive the statin class to be very similar," said Graeme Green, Ph.D., analyst at Decision Resources. "However Crestor positively differentiates itself in its greater ability to improve low- and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels."
