Isis Pharmaceuticals Reports Positive Phase 1 Data Demonstrating ISIS-APO(a) Rx Produces Significant Reductions in Lp(a) Levels
Date:11/16/2013

k of experiencing cardiovascular events.  ISIS-APO(a)Rx is part of Isis' 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.

ABOUT Lp(a)
Lp(a) is considered an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease due to its association with an increased risk of coronary heart disease and atherosclerotic plaque formation.  Lp(a) is a lipoprotein particle that is assembled in the liver that consists of an LDL-C-like particle and apolipoprotein(a).  Lp(a) levels in blood can vary greatly between individuals due primarily to genetic variations in the gene that encodes for apolipoprotein(a).  As a result, Lp(a) levels are genetically determined and remain constant throughout the life of the individual.  Diet and lifestyle changes have little impact on Lp(a) levels and current therapies are not able to adequately reduce elevated levels of Lp(a) to acceptable levels in patients who have severely elevated Lp(a).  As a general guideline for ideal Lp(a) levels, the European Atherosclerosis Society recommends that Lp(a) levels be less than or equal to 50 mg/dL.
