  Purpose

Alirocumab (SAR236553/REGN727) is a fully human monoclonal antibody that binds PCSK9 (proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9).

Primary Objective of the study:

To evaluate the effect of alirocumab on low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels after 24 weeks of treatment in comparison with placebo.

Secondary Objectives:

  • To evaluate the effect of alirocumab in comparison with placebo on LDL-C at other time points.
  • To evaluate the effects of alirocumab on other lipid parameters.
  • To evaluate the safety and tolerability of alirocumab.
