Overview of prescription omega-3 fatty acid products for hypertriglyceridemia. The omega-3 fatty acid mixtures studied in such other outcomes trials were primarily comprised of EPA and docosahexaenoic acid DHA typically, approximately mg total per 1 gram capsule and also typically included a number of other omega-3 and omega-6 acids, as well as other stuey.

Offer good through December 31, Jelus patients at baseline were taking at least one other cardiovascular medication including anti-platelet agents The trial population was The primary, secondary, and tertiary adjudicated endpoint analyses were validated by the data monitoring committee independent statistician.

The median change in LDL-C was 3. Patients were randomly assigned 1: Further detailed data assessment by Amarin and regulatory authorities will continue and take several months to complete and record The final evaluation of the totality of the efficacy and safety data from REDUCE-IT may include some or all of the following, as well as other considerations: These observations suggest that at least some of the impact of VASCEPA on the reduction in ischemic events may be jslis by metabolic effects other than triglyceride lowering.

VASCEPA® (icosapent ethyl) | REDUCE-IT™ Results Announced

The median follow-up duration was 58 months 4. By browsing our website, you agree to our use of cookies. Not for use by residents of VT, nor medical professionals licensed in VT. Sudden cardiac death and coronary death did not differ between groups. Watch the national commercial. In patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia, the effect of VASCEPA on cardiovascular mortality or morbidity or on the risk shudy pancreatitis has not been determined. The study was registered at ClinicalTrials.


Adapted from Yokoyama et al, Figure 3: Kaplan-Meier estimates of the incidence of the sudy endpoint of coronary events occurring in the group of all patients.

This offer is not valid for those patients under 18 years of age or patients whose plans do not permit use of a copay card.

Unstable angina and non-fatal coronary events were also significantly reduced in the EPA group. Am J Cardiovasc Drugs. Overall adverse event rates were similar across treatment groups. The rate of treatment-emergent serious adverse events for bleeding was 2. Amarin, through its dedicated team of professionals, constantly seeks to improve patient care through its actions and products while also striving to continuously improve along the way. GISSI-P did not suggest an effect on the incidence of nonfatal cardiovascular events and the effects of omega-3 fatty jelks on lipids, including serum TGs, were negligible.

About Amarin

Serum LDL cholesterol was not a significant factor in a reduction of risk for major coronary events. United States Food and Drug Administration et al.

While the DMC noted variation in LDL-C measurements in both arms stuy that a small physiological effect of mineral oil might be possible, sutdy DMC concluded that it was not possible to determine if the LDL-C increase in the placebo arm was a natural increase over time or due to the mineral oil, they found no apparent effect on outcomes and found that this small change was unlikely to explain the observed benefit of VASCEPA over placebo.


Incremental effects of eicosapentaenoic acid on cardiovascular events in statin-treated patients with coronary artery disease. P values for Lp-PLA 2a secondary endpoint, were adjusted for multiple comparisons; all other endpoints are exploratory. Effects of EPA on coronary artery disease in hypercholesterolemic patients with multiple risk factors: N Engl J Med.

P values from Wilcoxon rank sum test. GISSI-P is an ztudy outcomes trial 1 g omega-3 fatty acid helisconducted in Italy, that supported the hypothesis that omega-3 fatty acids likely exert their cardioprotective effects through nonlipid-mediated mechanisms.

On stable background lipid-lowering therapy, the median [Q1, Q3] fasting TG was The primary endpoint was any major coronary sttudy, including sudden cardiac death, fatal and non-fatal myocardial infarction, and other non-fatal events including unstable angina pectoris, angioplasty, stenting, or coronary artery bypass grafting. Analysis was by intention-to-treat.

Eligible patients include those who participate in commercial insurance, through a healthcare exchange, or pay cash. This site uses cookies to give you the best possible experience. While overall adverse event rates were similar across treatment groups Numerically more serious adverse events related to bleeding; overall rates were low 2.

Yes No By clicking yes, you are certifying you are also a Jepis resident. Epidemiological and clinical evidence suggests that an increased intake of long-chain n-3 fatty acids protects against mortality from coronary artery disease.

Patients enrolled were treated with statin therapy at baseline with most The Kaplan-Meier estimates of the cumulative incidence of the primary and key secondary composite endpoints over time are shown in Figure 1 and Figure 2 below. CI denotes confidence interval.
