Isis Adds Three New Drugs to Its Development Pipeline
Date:12/14/2011

levels of Lp(a) remain at high risk of cardiovascular events.  There is a significant need for a highly specific drug that can lower Lp(a).   Isis is developing ISIS-APOARx as part of its strategy to create a cardiovascular disease franchise comprised of drugs that target all the key components of cardiovascular disease, including various atherogenic lipids, inflammation and thrombosis.  Isis plans to develop ISIS-APOARx to treat patients with high Lp(a) levels who are at severe risk of experiencing cardiovascular events.

ISIS-DGAT2Rx specifically inhibits diacylglycerol acyltransferase-2, or DGAT-2, a key component in the synthesis of triglycerides.  ISIS-DGAT2Rx is designed to reduce liver fat in patients with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), a common and often asymptomatic liver disease that can cause irreversible damage to the liver, and lead to liver cirrhosis and cancer.   The incidence of NASH in the United States is estimated to be more than 20 million, and is expected to increase as the rate of obesity rises.  There are no effective therapies available for patients with NASH and current treatments consist only of lifestyle changes.  In addition, because increase in liver fat is strongly associated with insulin resistance, ISIS-DGAT2Rx could also be beneficial for patients with type 2 diabetes who are insulin resistant.   

ISIS-FVIIRx is designed to reduce Factor VII, a key component of the tissue factor coagulation pathway, for the treatment or prevention of thrombotic diseases without causing bleeding, which is a common side effect of currently available anti-thrombotic drugs.  Elevated levels of Factor VII activity are indicative of poor prognosis in several thrombotic diseases, such as heart attacks.  Furthermore, elevated levels of Factor VII activity are strongly linked to cancer-associated thrombosis, which is the second leading cause of death in cancer pati
