Efficacy and Safety of Alirocumab (SAR236553/REGN727) Versus Ezetimibe on Top of Statin in High Cardiovascular Risk Patients With Hypercholesterolemia (ODYSSEY Combo II)
Alirocumab (SAR236553/REGN727) is a fully human monoclonal antibody that binds PCSK9 (proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9).
Primary Objective of the study:
To demonstrate the reduction of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) by alirocumab as add-on therapy to stable maximally tolerated daily statin therapy in comparison with ezetimibe after 24 weeks of treatment in patients with hypercholesterolemia at high cardiovascular (CV) risk.
- To evaluate the effect of alirocumab in comparison with ezetimibe on LDL-C at other time points.
- To evaluate the effect of alirocumab on other lipid parameters.
- To evaluate the safety and tolerability of alirocumab.
