The Medicines Company
  • Company management and clinical trial investigators will review interim results on the long-term safety and efficacy data of inclisiran from ongoing ORION-3 study

The Medicines Company (NASDAQ:MDCO) will host a conference call and webcast for investors on Saturday, May 18, 2019, at 5:30 p.m. EDT. During the call, the Company’s management and clinical trial investigators will review interim results on the long-term safety and efficacy data of inclisiran from the ongoing ORION-3 study. The data will be presented during the late-breaking clinical trial session earlier the same day at the National Lipid Association (NLA) 2019 Scientific Sessions in Miami.

Inclisiran, the first cholesterol-lowering therapy in the small interfering RNA (siRNA) class, is the only medicine in late-stage clinical development with the potential to deliver potent, durable and consistent lowering of LDL cholesterol through twice-a-year dosing.

ORION-3 is an open-label Phase 2, extension study (of ORION-1) to assess the efficacy, safety and tolerability of long-term dosing of inclisiran. The study also evaluates safety and efficacy of switching patients treated with evolocumab to inclisiran. Follow up for this latter group is still ongoing and will be presented at a later date.
