A review. In this issue of Trends in Cardiovascular Medicine, Desai and Sabatine thoroughly review recent and ongoing trials of three monoclonal antibodies that disrupt PSCK9 binding to LDLreceptors,leading to marked redns. in LDL-C. As detailed in their review, evolocumab(AMG145), alirocumab(SAR236553/REGN727), and bococizumab(RN316) given every 2-4 wk, reduced LDL-C up to 75% in patients on statin therapy as compared to statin therapy alone, up to 51% in statin-intolerant patients and other patients not in statin therapy, and up to 55% in patients with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, most of whom were on statin therapy.
