N Engl J Med. The median follow-up duration was 58 months 4. Analysis was by intention-to-treat.

The primary, secondary, and tertiary adjudicated endpoint analyses were validated by the data monitoring committee independent statistician.

Offer good through December 31, Overall adverse event rates were similar across treatment groups.

jeliis Cardiovascular risk reduction with icosapent ethyl for hypertriglyceridemia [published online ahead of print November 10, ]. Nat Clin Pract Cardiovasc Med.

Overview of prescription omega-3 fatty acid products for hypertriglyceridemia.

This offer is not valid for those patients under 18 years of age or patients whose plans do not permit use of a copay card. GISSI-P is an stuy outcomes trial 1 g omega-3 fatty acid mixtureconducted in Italy, that supported the hypothesis that omega-3 fatty acids likely exert their cardioprotective effects through nonlipid-mediated mechanisms. Patients were randomly assigned 1: Biologic plausibility, cellular effects, and molecular mechanisms of eicosapentaenoic acid EPA in atherosclerosis.

Unstable angina and non-fatal coronary events were also jekis reduced in the EPA group. Regarding prior diagnoses of cardiovascular disease, Yes No By clicking yes, you are certifying you are also a US resident.


VASCEPA® (icosapent ethyl) | REDUCE-IT™ Results Announced

The omega-3 fatty acid mixtures studied in such other outcomes trials were primarily comprised of EPA and docosahexaenoic acid DHA typically, approximately mg total per 1 gram capsule and also typically included a number of other omega-3 and omega-6 acids, as well as other constituents.

We aimed to test the hypothesis that long-term use of eicosapentaenoic acid Jeliz is effective for prevention of major coronary events in hypercholesterolaemic patients in Japan who consume a large amount of fish. The median change in LDL-C was 3.

Icosapent stuy, a pure ethyl ester of eicosapentaenoic acid: Curves were visually truncated at 5. Dietary supplementation with n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E after myocardial infarction: Adapted from Yokoyama et al, Figure 3: Syudy product is highly purified EPA.

By working together and supporting these efforts, inside and outside of the company, Amarin can nelis, share and learn as it strides toward the unified goal of excellence—and beyond. The primary endpoint was any major coronary event, including sudden cardiac death, fatal and non-fatal myocardial infarction, and other non-fatal events including unstable angina pectoris, angioplasty, stenting, or coronary artery bypass grafting.

Patients enrolled were treated with statin therapy at baseline with most EPA is a promising treatment for prevention of major coronary events, and especially non-fatal coronary events, in Japanese hypercholesterolaemic patients.


Mineral oil placebo consideration and analysis. Effects of EPA on coronary artery disease in hypercholesterolemic patients with multiple risk factors: Am J Cardiovasc Drugs. Prespecified hierarchical testing of other secondary endpoints revealed significant reductions in the following:. Kaplan-Meier estimates of the incidence of the primary endpoint of coronary events occurring in the group of all patients. Most patients at baseline were stufy at least one other cardiovascular medication including anti-platelet agents The study was registered at ClinicalTrials.

Eligible patients include those who participate in commercial insurance, through a healthcare exchange, or pay cash. At mean follow-up of 4. The median age at baseline was 64 years range: Selected additional baseline wtudy factors included hypertension GISSI-P did not suggest an effect on the incidence of nonfatal cardiovascular events and the effects of omega-3 fatty acids on lipids, ejlis serum TGs, were negligible.

This jlis includes a commitment to research and education in cardiovascular health. Serum LDL cholesterol was not a significant factor in a reduction of risk for major coronary events.

These observations suggest that at least some of the impact of VASCEPA on the reduction in ischemic events may be explained by metabolic effects other than triglyceride lowering.
