Cholesterol-lowering treatment with PCSK9-inhibitors

Ugeskr Læger 2018;180:V11170831

Monoclonal antibodies inhibiting proprotein convertase subtilisin-kexin type 9 constitute a new class of lipid-lowering drugs. Currently, evolocumab and alirocumab are marketed. A recent cardiovascular outcome study with evolocumab has shown a cardiovascular (CV) event reduction of 15% in high-risk individuals at very low levels of low-density lipoproteins. The adverse event profile up to two years is mild. Treatment is very costly, and data on CV endpoints are still limited. Treatment is restricted to patients at very high risk of getting CV diseases and on a maximal tolerated statin and ezetimibe treatment in addition to dietary intervention.
