Ascending Multiple Dose Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of AMG 145 in Subjects With Hyperlipidemia on Stable Doses of a Statin

2014-08-27 03:13:20 | BioPortfolio

Summary

AMG 145 is being developed for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of multiple doses of AMG 145 when given as an add-on to stable statin therapy. The study hypotheses are that no significant safety issues will be identified following multiple SC doses of AMG 145 when administered as an add-on to stable statin therapy, and there will be a statistically significant decrease in LDL-C (low density lipoprotein cholesterol) levels following multiple SC doses of AMG 145 when administered as an add-on to stable statin therapy compared to placebo.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
