Isis Initiates Phase 2 Study of ISIS-APOCIIIRx in Patients with Hypertriglyceridemia
Date:5/4/2012

human population studies, lower levels of apoC-III and triglycerides correlated with a lower rate of cardiovascular events. In certain populations, apoC-III mediates insulin resistance, which can make metabolic syndrome worse. 

ABOUT HYPERTRIGLYCERIDEMIA

Hypertriglyceridemia can be caused by genetic defects, diet, obesity and uncontrolled diabetes and can lead to serious health problems, including cardiovascular disease and pancreatitis.  Triglycerides are an important measure of heart health and are routinely measured along with LDL-cholesterol and HDL-cholesterol.  Triglyceride levels of less than 150 mg/dL are considered within a normal range, and the American Heart Association recommends that a triglyceride level of less than 100 mg/dL is optimal.  Triglyceride levels of greater than 500 mg/dL are considered very high and levels greater than 1,000 mg/dL are considered to be severely high.  In these patients, diet and exercise have limited therapeutic benefit.  Patients with severely high triglycerides are at a higher risk of developing pancreatitis, a painful and sometimes fatal disease that requires hospitalization and close monitoring.  Based on prevalence data, Isis estimates there are greater than 200,000 patients with severely high triglycerides in the United States and Europe despite currently available therapies.
