Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent Change in Plasma Low Density Lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) From Day 1 (Study Baseline) to Week 8. [ Time Frame: 8 weeks (week 8 - day 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percent change in LDL-C (mg/dL) and standard deviation (SD) from Day 1 (Study Baseline)to Week 8 (last observation carried forward - LOCF)- Intent-to-Treat ITT population.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent Change in Plasma Total Cholesterol (TC) From Day 1 (Study Baseline) to Week 8. [ Time Frame: 8 weeks (week 8 - day 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percent change in total cholesterol (mg/dL) and standard deviation (SD) from Day 1 (Study Baseline) to Week 8 (last observation carried forward - LOCF)- Intent-to-Treat ITT population.

  • Percent Change in Plasma Triglycerides (TG) From Day 1 (Study Baseline) to Week 8. [ Time Frame: 8 weeks (week 8 - day 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percent change in triglycerides (mg/dL) and standard deviation (SD) from Day 1 (Study Baseline) to Week 8 (last observation carried forward - LOCF)- Intent-to-Treat ITT population.

  • Percent Change in Plasma High-density Lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) From Day 1 (Study Baseline) to Week 8. [ Time Frame: 8 weeks (week 8 - day 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percent change in HDL-C (mg/dL) and standard deviation (SD) from Day 1 (Study Baseline) to Week 8 (last observation carried forward - LOCF)- Intent-to-Treat ITT population.

  • Percent Change in Plasma Non-high Density Lipoprotein-cholesterol (Non-HDL-C) From Day 1 (Study Baseline) to Week 8. [ Time Frame: 8 weeks (week 8 - day 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percent change in non-HDL-C (mg/dL) and standard deviation (SD) from Day 1 (Study Baseline) to Week 8 (last observation carried forward - LOCF)- Intent-to-Treat ITT population.

  • Percent Change in Plasma Apolipoprotien A-I (Apo A-1) From Day 1 (Study Baseline) to Week 8. [ Time Frame: 8 weeks (week 8 - day 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percent change in Apolipoprotien A-I (Apo A-1) (mg/dL) and standard deviation (SD) from Day 1 (Study Baseline) to Week 8 (last observation carried forward - LOCF)- Intent-to-Treat ITT population.

  • Percent Change in Plasma Apolipoprotein B (Apo B) From Day 1 (Study Baseline) to Week 8. [ Time Frame: 8 weeks (week 8 - day 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percent change in Apo B (mg/dL) and standard deviation (SD) from Day 1 (Study Baseline) to Week 8 (last observation carried forward - LOCF)- Intent-to-Treat ITT population.

  • Percent Change in Low-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C) From Study Baseline (Day 1) to Week 26. [ Time Frame: 26 weeks (week 26 - day 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percent change in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol from baseline to Week 26 was calculated for subpopulations representing each assigned treatment group during the Double blind Period, and for the overall population in the Open Label Extension Period.

  • Percent Change in Total Cholesterol From Study Baseline (Day 1) to Week 26. [ Time Frame: 26 weeks (week 26 - day 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percent change in total cholesterol (TC) from baseline to Week 26 was calculated for subpopulations representing each assigned treatment group during the Double blind Period, and for the overall population in the Open Label Extension Period.

    Percent change in non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol from baseline to Week 26 was calculated for subpopulations representing each assigned treatment group during the Double blind Period, and for the overall population in the Open Label Extension Period.

  • Percent Change in Apolipoprotein A-I From Study Baseline (Day 1) to Week 26. [ Time Frame: 26 weeks (week 26 - day 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percent change in apolipoprotein A-I from baseline to Week 26 was calculated for subpopulations representing each assigned treatment group during the Double blind Period, and for the overall population in the Open Label Extension Period.
