Further Cardiovascular OUtcomes Research With PCSK9 Inhibition in Subjects With Elevated Risk

Design and Objective

A double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled, multicenter study assessing the impact of additional LDL-cholesterol reduction on major cardiovascular events when a PCSK9 inhibitor is used in combination with optimal statin therapy in patients with clinically evident cardiovascular disease. The study has recruited 27,500 subjects from around the world (Europe, US, Canada, Australia, Asia, Latin America).

Key inclusion criteria

Male or female aged 40 to 85 years History of clinically evident cardiovascular disease (myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke, peripheral vascular disease) at high risk for a recurrent event Fasting LDL-C ≥ 70 mg/dL (1.8 mmol/L) or non-HDL-C ≥ 100 mg/dL (2.6 mmol/L) Fasting triglycerides ≤ 400 mg/dl (4.5 mmol/L)
