Reduction of LDL-C With PCSK9 Inhibition in Heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia Disorder Study
A Double-blind, Randomized, Placebo-controlled, Multicenter Study to Evaluate Tolerability and Efficacy of AMG 145 on Low-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C) in Subject With Heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia

The primary hypothesis is that a dose of evolocumab (AMG 145) every-4-weeks (Q4W) subcutaneous (SC) will be well tolerated and will result in greater lowering of Low-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C) at week 12 than placebo in subjects with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia
