About the Study Results
More patients simultaneously achieved all three ADA lipid targets for HDL, triglycerides and LDL when receiving TRILIPIX in combination with rosuvastatin 10 mg (28.3 percent vs. 8.3 percent; p=0.012) or 20 mg (19.1 percent vs. 5.9 percent; p= 0.045) compared to rosuvastatin 10 mg or 20 mg alone, respectively. Additionally, TRILIPIX in combination with rosuvastatin 5 mg resulted in 21.7 percent of patients achieving all three ADA lipid targets simultaneously compared to 12.1 percent of patients receiving rosuvastatin 5 mg alone (p=0.137). TRILIPIX monotherapy resulted in 4.3 percent of patients obtaining simultaneous achievement of these goals.
"The clinical program continues to generate important data supporting the use of TRILIPIX in combination with rosuvastatin therapy in high risk patient populations," said Eugene Sun, M.D., vice president, Global Pharmaceutical Clinical Development, Abbott.
TRILIPIX Clinical Development Program
The TRILIPIX clinical program studied 3,458 patients with mixed dyslipidemia in four 12-week controlled studies where patients received TRILIPIX alone, TRILIPIX in combination with one of the three most commonly prescribed statins (atorvastatin, simvastatin or rosuvastatin) or statin alone. The clinical program also included a 52-week, long-term, open-label extension study.
