Researchers today presented results from the Phase III DEFINE (Determining the EFficacy and Tolerability of CETP INhibition with AnacEtrapib) study with Merck's investigational CETP inhibitor, anacetrapib. In the trial of 1,623 patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) or CHD risk equivalents, anacetrapib showed no significant differences from placebo in the primary safety measures studied. There were no significant differences in mean changes in blood pressure between the anacetrapib and placebo treatment groups, nor were there any significant differences in serum electrolytes or aldosterone levels. During the 76-week treatment phase, the pre-specified adjudicated cardiovascular endpoint (defined as cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, unstable angina or stroke) occurred in 16 anacetrapib-treated patients (2.0 percent) compared with 21 placebo-treated patients (2.6 percent) (p=0.40). At 24 weeks, anacetrapib decreased LDL-C by 40 percent (from 81 to 45 mg/dl vs. 82 to 77 mg/dl for placebo, p<0.001) and increased HDL-C by 138 percent (from 40 to 101 mg/dl vs. 40 to 46 mg/dl for placebo, p<0.001) in patients already treated with a statin and at guideline-recommended LDL-C goal. The DEFINE data were presented today at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions and published concurrently online in the New England Journal of Medicine. Available content includes soundbites and b-roll.
