BACKGROUND: Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) apheresis is an extracorporeal treatment modality used in high-risk coronary patients. It may, however, induce complement activation and downstream inflammation due to bio-incompatibility. OBJECTIVE: We explored changes in soluble inflammatory markers when changing from LDL apheresis to the novel PCSK9 inhibitor evolocumab. METHODS: Three patients with familial hypercholesterolemia participated. Blood samples (EDTA plasma) for complement activation and markers of inflammation were obtained before (baseline) and after LDL apheresis week at 0 and before biweekly administration of evolocumab at weeks 1, 3, 5, and 7...

The achievement of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) therapeutic targets is especially difficult in some patients at high cardiovascular risk. These patients include persons with statin intolerance and those with very high LDL cholesterol (LDLc) levels such as persons with familial hypercholesterolemia. The proportion of statin-intolerant patients is between 7% and 29%. Alternative lipid-lowering drugs (including ezetimibe) are less effective and are not free from adverse effects. Both alirocumab, with the ODYSSEY ALTERNATIVE study, and evolocumab, with the GAUSS study, have shown strong lipid-lowering efficacy, with much greater tolerability than currently available alternatives, with the result that a larger number of patients achieve therapeutic targets...

Evolocumab has been considered as an efficacious, safe and promising therapeutic modality for hypercholesterolemia and is associated with cardiovascular diseases. The efficacy and safety of two different doses of evolocumab were evaluated and the safety of evolocumab was compared with that of a placebo and ezetimibe. PubMed and EMBASE databases were searched and randomized controlled trials that examined the effect and safety of evolomucab compared with a placebo and ezetimibe were retrieved. Two authors independently performed article reviews and study quality evaluations...

The aim of this manuscript is to review available data to evaluate the present status of proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) inhibitors in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. Relevant literature since 2003 is reviewed. The effectiveness of PCSK9 inhibitors in lowering low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and other atherogenic lipid fractions was studied in various Phase 2 and Phase 3 trials of Alirocumab, Evolocumab, and Bococizumab. The results of published long-term ODYSSEY and OSLER studies are summarized...

Understanding the pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) relationship of a therapeutic monoclonal antibody against proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) exhibiting target-mediated drug disposition (TMDD) is critical for selecting optimal dosing regimens. We describe the PK/PD relationship of evolocumab using a mathematical model that captures evolocumab binding and removal of unbound PCSK9 as well as reduction in circulating low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C). Data were pooled from 2 clinical studies: a single-dose escalation study in healthy subjects (7-420 mg SC; n = 44) and a multiple-dose escalation study in statin-treated hypercholesterolemic patients (14 mg weekly to 420 mg monthly [QM] SC; n = 57)...

As part of its Single Technology Appraisal (STA) process, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) invited the manufacturer of evolocumab (Amgen) to submit evidence on the clinical and cost effectiveness of evolocumab. The appraisal assessed evolocumab as monotherapy or in combination with a statin (HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor) with or without ezetimibe, or in combination with ezetimibe (without statin therapy), in adult patients with primary hypercholesterolaemia (which includes mixed dyslipidaemia), for whom statins do not provide optimal control of their low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels and/or for whom statins are contraindicated or not tolerated...

Importance: Reducing levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) with intensive statin therapy reduces progression of coronary atherosclerosis in proportion to achieved LDL-C levels. Proprotein convertase subtilisin kexin type 9 (PCSK9) inhibitors produce incremental LDL-C lowering in statin-treated patients; however, the effects of these drugs on coronary atherosclerosis have not been evaluated. Objective: To determine the effects of PCSK9 inhibition with evolocumab on progression of coronary atherosclerosis in statin-treated patients...

Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is a common genetic disorder that can manifest clinically as both the severe homozygous (HoFH) form that often presents in childhood and the commoner heterozygous (HeFH) form that is typically identified in adults. The majority of genetic causes are due to defects in low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor synthesis and action. Until recently, it was exceedingly difficult to achieve the goal of a 50% reduction in LDL-cholesterol or LDL-C < 70-100 in these patients. Established therapies include statins, niacin, bile-acid sequestrants, and ezetimibe in various combinations...

BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in Europe and increased low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) is a major contributor to CVD risk. Extensive evidence from clinical studies of statins has demonstrated a linear relationship between LDL-C levels and CVD risk. It has been proposed that lower LDL-C levels than those currently recommended may provide additional clinical benefit to patients. AIM: This review summarises the genetic and clinical evidence on the efficacy and safety of achieving very low LDL-C levels...

The effects of cholesterol-lowering drugs, including those that reduce cholesterol synthesis (statins) and those that reduce cholesterol absorption (ezetimibe), on cholesterol absorption and synthesis are well understood. Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) inhibitors are a novel class of cholesterol-lowering drugs that robustly reduce LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C), but little is known about their effects on cholesterol absorption and synthesis. We evaluated how treatment with evolocumab, a fully human monoclonal IgG2 antibody to PCSK9, affects markers of cholesterol synthesis and absorption by measuring these markers in patients from an evolocumab clinical trial...

In this article, we consider the new drugs approved for the European market in 2015. We present a summary of the new mechanisms of action introduced and highlight three new mechanisms of action with a potentially high future impact: PCSK9 inhibition (alirocumab (Praluent®) and evolocumab (Repatha®)) for hypercholesterolaemia, neprilysin inhibition (sacubitril in combination with valsartan (Entresto®)) for heart failure, and interleukin-5 inhibition (mepolizumab (Nucala®)) for asthma.

Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) plays an integral role in the degradation of low-density lipoprotein receptors (LDL-R), making it an intriguing target for emerging pharmacotherapy. Two PCSK9 inhibitors, alirocumab and evolocumab, have been approved and are available in the United States and European Union. However, much of the PCSK9 story remains to be told. The pipeline for additional pharmacotherapy options is rich with several compounds under development, using alternative strategies for inhibiting PCSK9...

Evolocumab binds PCSK9, increasing low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) receptors and lowering LDL-C. Target-mediated evolocumab elimination is attributable to PCSK9 binding. As circulating PCSK9 and LDL-C levels are primarily regulated by the liver, we compared evolocumab pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and safety in individuals with and without hepatic impairment. Open-label, parallel-group study evaluating the pharmacokinetics of evolocumab in hepatic-impaired (Child-Pugh Class A or B) or healthy adults...

Hypercholesterolemia is one of the main risk factors for atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases. The treatment is based on the modification of the diet and lifestyle and if necessary on a pharmacological therapy. The most widely used drugs are the inhibitors of 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl coenzyme A reductase (statins); nevertheless, many patients do not reach optimal levels of low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) even with maximal dosage of statins (eventually associated to ezetimibe) or present side effects, which do not allow them to continue the treatment...
