Catabasis Initiates Phase 1 Trial of CAT-2003 for Treatment of Severe Hypertriglyceridemia
Date:3/26/2013

ogy. It is being investigated for the treatment of severe hypertriglyceridemia. In preclinical models of severe hypertriglyceridemia, a significant and dose-dependent reduction in plasma triglycerides was observed with CAT-2003, while a simple combination of niacin and omega-3 had only a marginal effect. In preclinical models of dyslipidemia, CAT-2003 dramatically reduced LDL cholesterol.  In combination with a statin, CAT-2003 synergistically lowered LDL cholesterol.  Because CAT-2003 is not activated until it is delivered to the target cell, CAT-2003 is not expected to activate the receptor that causes "niacin flush," a side effect characterized by blushing of the skin and a sensation of warmth resulting from blood vessel dilation; this effect can reduce patient compliance.

About HypertriglyceridemiaSevere hypertriglyceridemia refers to a condition involving levels of triglycerides equal to or above 500 mg/dL. Severe hypertriglyceridemia is associated with markedly increased risk for cardiovascular disease and pancreatitis, and recent studies have demonstrated that elevated triglyceride levels can be regarded as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular events such as myocardial infarction, ischemic heart disease and ischemic stroke.  The prevalence of hypertriglyceridemia is rapidly increasing in the United States and throughout the world.  It is estimated that over four million patients have severe hypertriglyceridemia in the United States. The National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) Expert Panel on Detection, Evaluation and Treatment of High Blood Cholesterol recommends that the first priority for the management of severe hypertriglyceridemia be triglyceride reduction to decrease the risk of pancreatitis. Current treatments include adhering to a low-fat, low-carbohydrate diet, exercise and alcohol abstinence. Medical therapies can include statins to normalize other lipid p
