LIVALO(R) Demonstrates Sustained, Long-Term Efficacy and Tolerability in Patients With Primary Hypercholesterolemia or Mixed Dyslipidemia

ses," said Roger E. Morgan, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Kowa Research Institute. "With sustained efficacy, low rates of discontinuation due to adverse events and steady, progressive increases in HDL-C observed over 52 weeks, LIVALO shows great promise for the long-term treatment of patients with hypercholesterolemia or mixed dyslipidemia."

Study 1

A total of 830 patients were randomized to one of four treatment groups: LIVALO (2 mg or 4 mg) or atorvastatin (10 mg or 20 mg), once daily. Results showed that LIVALO was comparable to atorvastatin in terms of reduction in LDL-C, and no significant differences emerged in the other endpoints. Adverse events with LIVALO and atorvastatin were also similar.

Study 2

A total of 857 patients were randomized to LIVALO (2 mg or 4 mg) or simvastatin (20 mg or 40 mg), once daily. Results showed that LIVALO 4 mg and simvastatin 40 mg were comparable in LDLC reduction, with low-dose LIVALO (2 mg) resulting in a greater reduction in LDL-C than simvastatin 20 mg. Additionally, low-dose LIVALO also showed significantly better decreases in total cholesterol and non-HDL-C than simvastatin 20 mg. Moreover, the percentage of patients who met the LDL-C goal, according to EAS guidelines, was also greater with low-dose LIVALO compared with simvastatin 20 mg. The tolerability profiles of LIVALO and simvastatin were similar.

Extension Study

The extension study demonstrated a favorable safety and tolerability profile for LIVALO 4 mg over the 52-week trial. Reductions in LDL-C were sustained over the 52-week period. In addition, a higher proportion of LIVALO-treated patients met the defined LDL-C target at the end of the extension study than at the end of the core study (74.0% NCEP and 73.5% EAS). Steady increases in HDL-C were observed throughout the extension period, reaching more than 14%
