Aegerion Pharmaceuticals Achieves Primary Endpoint in Phase III Study of Lomitapide in Japanese Patients With Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia

Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced the primary endpoint was achieved in the company's open-label, multicenter study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of lomitapide in nine Japanese patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH). The primary endpoint measured mean percent change in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) at the maximum tolerated dose compared to baseline after 26 weeks of treatment, in combination with other lipid-lowering therapy. Following the 26 week assessment, patients in the study entered a 30-week safety phase. Each patient will continue receiving the maximum tolerated dose of lomitapide he or she achieved during the efficacy phase for an additional 30 weeks in the safety phase, subject to safety-related dose adjustments. The company expects to file the NDA in Japan with the 26-week data, and to submit the 56-week data during the review cycle.
