Pilot Study To Assess CAT-2003 in Patients With Severe Hypertriglyceridemia
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of multiple doses of CAT-2003 in patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia either naive or refractory to current therapy. The study will evaluate effects of CAT-2003 on fasting and postprandial total triglycerides and chylomicron triglyceride levels in patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia.
This is a single-blind study. All patients will receive placebo for a 14 day treatment period and CAT-2003 for a 28 day treatment period.

Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Participant)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase 2 Pilot Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of CAT-2003 in Patients With Severe Hypertriglyceridemia|
- Percent change from baseline in fasting triglycerides in patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
- Frequency of adverse events [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
Safety will be assessed for all enrolled patients from the time the patient signs the informed consent through post-treatment follow-up.
Safety parameters include physical exam, vital signs, clinical laboratory tests, ECGs and concomitant medications.
- Absolute and percent change from baseline on postprandial total and chylomicron triglyceride levels [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
