An 8-Week Dose-Finding Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Alirocumab in Children and Adolescents With Heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia

2016-09-07 16:23:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Primary Objective:

To evaluate the effect of alirocumab on low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels after 8 weeks of treatment in heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (heFH) patients age of 8 to 17 years, with LDL-C ≥130 mg/dL (3.37 mmol/L) on optimal stable daily dose of statin therapy +/- other lipid modifying therapies (LMTs) or a stable dose of non-statin LMTs in case of intolerance to statins for at least 4 weeks prior to the screening period.

Secondary Objectives:

- To evaluate the safety and tolerability of alirocumab.

- To evaluate the pharmacokinetics profile of alirocumab.

- To evaluate the effects of alirocumab on other lipid parameters.

Description

A study duration of approximately 16-23 weeks (screening period: up to 6 (+1) weeks, open-label dose finding treatment period: 8 weeks, follow up period: 6-8 weeks).

Optional extension period: up to a maximum of 2 years depending on date of study entry.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A pharmaceutical preparation of ezetimibe and simvastatin that is used in the treatment of HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA and HYPERLIPIDEMIAS.

FATTY ACIDS which have the first unsaturated bond in the sixth position from the omega carbon. A typical American diet tends to contain substantially more omega-6 than OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS.

A neurotoxic peptide, which is a cleavage product (VIa) of the omega-Conotoxin precursor protein contained in venom from the marine snail, CONUS geographus. It is an antagonist of CALCIUM CHANNELS, N-TYPE.

An antilipemic agent which reduces both CHOLESTEROL and TRIGLYCERIDES in the blood.

A group of fatty acids, often of marine origin, which have the first unsaturated bond in the third position from the omega carbon. These fatty acids are believed to reduce serum triglycerides, prevent insulin resistance, improve lipid profile, prolong bleeding times, reduce platelet counts, and decrease platelet adhesiveness.
