Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Full Administration of Evolocumab at Both Weeks 2 and 4 [ Time Frame: Week 2 and Week 4 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent Change From Baseline in LDL-C at Week 6 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 6 ]

Enrollment: 149
Study Start Date: April 2013
Study Completion Date: September 2013
Primary Completion Date: September 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Evolocumab PFS
Participants received evolocumab 140 mg every 2 weeks for 4 weeks (Day 1, Week 2, and Week 4) subcutaneously using a prefilled syringe (PFS). Participants self-administered evolocumab in the clinic on Day 1 under supervision and then self-administered in a home setting at Weeks 2 and 4.

  • Repatha
Experimental: Evolocumab AI/pen
Participants received evolocumab 140 mg every 2 weeks for 4 weeks (Day 1, Week 2, and Week 4) subcutaneously using a prefilled autoinjector/pen (AI/pen). Participants self-administered evolocumab in the clinic on Day 1 under supervision and then self-administered in a home setting at Weeks 2 and 4.
Biological: Evolocumab AI/pen
Evolocumab subcutaneous injection via a handheld mechanical (spring-based) autoinjector/pen.
