Objective: After a four-year program of research and development MONTELOEDER has identified highly active components in well-known and safe herbal extracts (Hibiscus sabdariffa and ; Lemon verbena) that preclinical results shows to modulate triglyceride accumulation, oxidative stress and inflammation in insulin-resistant adipocytes and their capacity to decrease body weight, serum cholesterol and triglycerides levels and hepatic steatosis signs in a hyperlipidemic mouse model subjected to high-fat diets.
The Phase 3 program includes 16 trials to evaluate Repatha administered every two weeks and monthly in multiple patient populations, including in combination with statins in patients with hyperlipidemia (LAPLACE-2 and YUKAWA-2); in patients with hyperlipidemia who cannot tolerate statins (GAUSS-2 and GAUSS-3); as a stand-alone treatment in patients with hyperlipidemia (MENDEL-2); in patients whose elevated cholesterol is caused by genetic disorders called heterozygous (RUTHERFORD-2 and TAUSSIG) and homozygous (TESLA and TAUSSIG) familial hypercholesterolemia; the effects of Repatha on lipoprotein metabolism (FLOREY); and the administration of Repatha in statin-treated hyperlipidemic patients (THOMAS-1 and THOMAS-2).
