An open-label, prospective phase III study to compare the efficacy and safety of administering evolocumab versus treatment with LDLapheresis in patients with familial hypercholesterolemia ...
The primary hypothesis is that evolocumab (AMG 145) SC will be well tolerated and will result in greater reduction of LDL-C than ezetimibe.
The primary goal is to assess the impact of Evolocumab therapy on platelet function of familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) patients in a randomized, double blind study. Evolocumab is a huma...
The study is divided into 2 parts. The first part of the study will be double-blinded and will last for 24 weeks. During this time, subjects will be randomized in a ratio of 2:1 to receive...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of 12 weeks of subcutaneous evolocumab taken monthly compared with subcutaneous placebo taken monthly on low density lipoprotein cholest...
Evolocumab, a novel human monoclonal antibody, inhibits proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9, a protein that targets low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) receptors for the treatment of...
Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) increases plasma low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) by decreasing expression of the LDL receptor on hepatic cells. Evolocumab is a human ...
-The FOURIER trial recently showed that the PCSK9 inhibitor evolocumab significantly reduced major vascular events in patients with stable atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, including patients wi...
Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)], a low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particle covalently bound to apolipoprotein(a) [apo(a)], is a potentially potent heritable risk factor for cardiovascular disease. We investigat...
Previous research shows that endurance performance can be enhanced by placebo ergogenic aids. This study investigates the ergogenic placebo response, which we define as an increase in objective and ph...
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
