Drug Information available for: Evolocumab

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Evolocumab
Participants received 420 mg evolocumab once a month for up to 2 years.
Biological: Evolocumab
Administered by subcutaneous injection once a month
Other Names:
  • AMG 145
  • Repatha

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants With Adverse Events [ Time Frame: From first dose of evolocumab up to 30 days after the last dose, or end of study, whichever was earlier, up to 108 weeks. ]

    The severity of each adverse event (AE) was graded using the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.03 criteria, where Grade 1 = Mild AE, Grade 2 = Moderate AE, Grade 3 = Severe or medically significant AE, Grade 4 = Life-threatening consequences, and Grade 5 = death related to AE.

    An adverse device effect was defined as any adverse event related to the use of a medical device (autoinjector/pen or automated mini doser [AMD]), including but not limited to, AEs resulting from insufficient or inadequate Instructions for Use, AEs resulting from any malfunction of the device, or AEs resulting from use error or from intentional misuse of the device.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent Change From Baseline in Low-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C) [ Time Frame: Baseline (of study 20120153) and weeks 0, 4, 12, 24, 36, 48, 52, 76, and 104 of study 20140128 ]
