Hypercholesterol study

The purpose of the study is to determine if the study treatment, called inclisiran, will be able to lower the LDL-cholesterol levels (also known as “bad cholesterol”) in adults with high cholesterol after about 5 months (about 150 days) of study treatment. LDL-cholesterol is the type of cholesterol, which can cause a disease of the blood vessels called atherosclerosis. 

Inclisiran will be compared to ezetimibe and placebo. “Placebo” looks like the other study treatments but has no active ingredients. “Ezetimibe” is an approved prescription medicine used to lower LDL-cholesterol in patients with high cholesterol levels. It belongs to a class of drugs called, “cholesterol absorption inhibitors.” This medicine may be prescribed to patients who have a high cholesterol level.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is hypercholesterolemia?
  • Hypercholesterolemia, also known as high cholesterol, is a medical condition characterized by elevated levels of cholesterol in the blood. Cholesterol is essential for the body to function properly. However, when there is too much cholesterol in the blood, it can accumulate in the walls of the arteries and form plaques. Over time, these plaques can narrow the arteries and make it difficult for blood to flow through, which can lead to various cardiovascular diseases, such as heart attack and stroke.
What are the symptoms of hypercholesterolemia?
  • High cholesterol levels can cause a variety of health problems, including heart disease, stroke, and heart attack. Some common symptoms of hypercholesterolemia include: chest pain, shortness of breath, heart attack, stroke, clogged arteries.
What is the treatment for hypercholesterolemia?
  • The treatment for hypercholesterolemia depends on the severity of the condition and other risk factors, such as age, family history, and the presence of other medical conditions. Lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet and exercising are also recommended. It is important to manage hypercholesterolemia to prevent the development of cardiovascular diseases, such as heart attack and stroke. It is important to work closely with a healthcare provider to determine the best treatment plan for hypercholesterolemia. Get in touch with us to detect the condition in early stages!
What are the causes of hypercholesterolemia?
  • There are many causes of hypercholesterolemia. Some common causes are genetics, diet, obesity, lack of exercise, medical conditions or medications and smoking. It is important to manage hypercholesterolemia to prevent the development of cardiovascular diseases, such as heart attack and stroke.
How much will the study cost?
  • There will be zero costs for the study participant to take part in the hypercholesterol study.
What if I am uninsured?
  • Proof of insurance is NOT required to participate in this study. All medical oversight over the course of your study participation is included.
What does investigational medication mean?
  • An Investigational medication (also known as investigational new drug) has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for testing in people in a clinical study, but has not been approved for general use, distribution or sale. It is through clinical research that these medications receive full approval by the FDA.
How will I be compensated for participating?
  • Participants receive a check following each study visit. For this study, those that qualify and choose to participate could receive a total payment of up to $165 to $990.
