Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Japanese men and women ≥ 20 to ≤ 85 years of age, with fasting low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) ≥ 100 mg/dL (2.6 mmol/L), fasting triglycerides ≤ 400 mg/dL (4.5 mmol/L), and at high risk for cardiovascular events were eligible to participate. First patient enrolled on 07 October 2013 and last patient enrolled on 17 February 2014.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
409 participants were randomized to 1 of 2 open-label atorvastatin cohorts (5 mg or 20 mg) for the lipid stabilization period; 404 were then randomized to blinded investigational product. Both randomizations were stratified by heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HeFH) diagnosis and lipid-lowering therapy.
