Condition(s) targeted: Hypertriglyceridemia

Intervention: Antara (fenofibrate) + Lovaza (Drug); Antara (fenofibrate) (Drug)

Phase: Phase 4

Status: Completed

Summary

The purpose of OM5/LOV111859 was to evaluate efficacy and safety of Omacor (omega-3-acid ethyl esters) as add-on therapy to Antara (fenofibrate) and diet for the treatment of patients with very high triglycerides. The purpose of both OM5X/LOV111860 was to assess the continued efficacy and safety of adjunctive Lovaza (omega-3-acid ethyl esters) therapy in hypertriglyceridemic subjects treated with fenofibrate in lowering serum triglyceride (TG) levels.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel-Group, Phase IV Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Adjunctive Omacor Therapy in Hypertriglyceridemic Subjects Treated With Antara, Followed by an 8-week Extension

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome:

OM5X/LOV111860 - Difference between double-blind Lovaza (omega-3-acid ethyl esters) + fenofibrate (Group 1) and placebo + fenofibrate (Group 2) treatment groups in percent change in fasting serum TG level from baseline of OM5 to end of OM5X

OM5/LOV111859 - Difference between Lovaza (omega-3-acid ethyl esters) [formerly known as Omacor]+ fenofibrate and placebo + fenofibrate treatment groups in percent change in TG level from baseline

Secondary outcome:

OM5X/LOV111860 - Difference between double-blind Lovaza (omega-3-acid ethyl esters) + fenofibrate (Group 1) and placebo + fenofibrate (Group 2) treatment groups in percent change for other lipid and biomarkers from baseline of OM5 to end of OM5X

OM5/LOV111859 - Difference between Lovaza (omega-3-acid ethyl esters) + fenofibrate and placebo + fenofibrate treatment groups in percent change for other lipid and biomarkers from baseline
