FDA Approves Aegerion Pharmaceuticals Inc's JUXTAPID Capsules for Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia

Monday, 24 Dec 2012 07:00am EST 

Aegerion Pharmaceuticals Inc announced that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has approved JUXTAPID (lomitapide) capsules as an adjunct to a low-fat diet and other lipid-lowering treatments, including LDL apheresis where available, to reduce low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), total cholesterol (TC), apolipoprotein B (apo B) and non- high-density-lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL) in patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH). The FDA based its approval of JUXTAPID on Aegerion's pivotal Phase III study, which evaluated the safety and effectiveness of the medicine to reduce LDL-C levels in 29 adult patients with HoFH. The study was a multinational, single-arm, open-label, 78 week trial that was recently published in the November 2, 2012 online version of the Lancet. In this study, JUXTAPID was initiated at 5 mg daily and gradually escalated to doses of 10 mg, 20 mg, 40 mg, up to 60 mg, based on tolerability and acceptable liver enzymes levels.
