  Purpose

The purpose of this research study is to see how ETC-1002 is tolerated in the body, to measure the amount of ETC-1002 in the blood, and to determine how ETC-1002 affects the level of LDL-cholesterol (bad cholesterol) and other markers of health and disease in blood and urine in patients with elevated LDL-cholesterol with or without statin intolerance.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent change in calculated low density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent change in other lipid measures non high density lipoprotein cholesterol (nonHDL-C) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety using adverse event reports; vital signs [ Time Frame: up to 21 weeks including screening ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Percent change in Apolipoprotein B (ApoB) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percent change in high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety using adverse event reports; clinical laboratory results [ Time Frame: up to 21 weeks including screening ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Safety using adverse event reports; rates of muscle-related adverse [ Time Frame: up to 21 weeks including screening ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetic plasma trough concentrations of ETC-1002 and its metabolite ESP15228 [ Time Frame: Week 2, Week 4, Week 8 and Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:

Hypercholesterolemic patients either with or without a history of statin intolerance (1:1 ratio) will be randomized to receive once daily by mouth capsules containing either ETC-1002, ezetimibe, or ETC-1002 + ezetimibe. This study will explore the safety and efficacy of concomitant administration of ETC-1002 and ezetimibe, while also exploring the effect of ezetimibe on ETC-1002 systemic exposure.
