Bococizumab[1] (RN316)[2] is a drug in development by Pfizer targeting PCSK9 to reduce LDL cholesterol.[3]

Description

Bococizumab is a monoclonal antibody that inhibits PCSK9, a protein that interferes with the removal of LDL. LDL levels are a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

Clinical trials

A phase 2b study of statin patients was presented at the 2014 American College of Cardiology. Monthly or bimonthly injections resulted in significantly reduced LDL-C at week 12.
The Phase 3 SPIRE trials plan to enroll 17,000 patients to measure cardiovascular risk. High risk and statin intolerant subjects will be included.

  2. On an interesting note. Please have look at following blog post : http://www.oncologybiomarkers.com/2015/10/success-of-cancer-chemotherapy-mis.html

    It discusses about the mis-directed facts about successful chemotherapy...
