Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Percent Change From Baseline to the Final Visit in Low-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C) (Full Analysis Set) [ Time Frame: Baseline to 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    The mean percent change from Baseline to the Final Visit in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, comparing the following two treatment groups:

    ABT-143 capsules 20/135 milligrams versus simvastatin capsules 40 milligrams for the full analysis set.



Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Percent Change From Baseline to the Final Visit in Low-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C), With ABT-143 Capsules 10/135 Milligrams Versus Simvastatin Capsules 40 Milligrams (Full Analysis Set) [ Time Frame: Baseline to 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The mean percent change from Baseline to the Final Visit in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, comparing the following treatment groups, ABT-143 capsules 10/135 milligrams versus simvastatin capsules 40 milligrams for the full analysis set.

  • Mean Percent Change From Baseline to the Final Visit in Low-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C), With ABT-143 Capsules 5/135 Milligrams Versus Simvastatin Capsules 40 Milligrams (Full Analysis Set) [ Time Frame: Baseline to 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The mean percent change from Baseline to the Final Visit in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, comparing the following treatment groups, ABT-143 capsules 5/135 milligrams versus simvastatin capsules 40 milligrams for the full analysis set.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Median Percent Change in Triglycerides From Baseline to the Final Visit (Full Analysis Set) [ Time Frame: Baseline to 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The ABT-143 capsules 20/135 milligram, ABT-143 capsules 10/135 milligram, and ABT-143 capsules 5/135 milligram groups were compared to the simvastatin capsules 40 milligram group for median percent change in triglycerides from Baseline to the Final Visit for the full analysis set.

  • Mean Percent Change in High-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C) From Baseline to the Final Visit (Full Analysis Set) [ Time Frame: Baseline to 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The ABT-143 capsules 20/135 milligram, ABT-143 capsules 10/135 milligram, and ABT-143 capsules 5/135 milligram groups were compared to the simvastatin capsules 40 milligram group for mean percent change in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol from Baseline to the Final Visit for the full analysis set.

Detailed Description:

There are 4 treatment groups in the study: ABT-143 capsules 20/135 mg, ABT-143 capsules 10/135 mg, ABT-143 5/135 mg, and simvastatin capsules 40 mg. The primary outcome measure only compares 2 of these groups: ABT-143 capsules 20/135 mg and the simvastatin capsules 40 mg groups, therefore there are only results for these 2 groups and not all 4 groups for this outcome measure . Secondary outcome measure (mean percent change in LDL-C comparing ABT-143 capsules 10/135 mg to simvastatin capsules 40 mg) only compares these 2 groups: ABT-143 capsules 10/135 mg and simvastatin capsules 40 mg, therefore there are only results for these 2 groups and not all 4 groups for this outcome measure. Secondary outcome measure (mean percent change in LDL-C comparing ABT-143 capsules 5/135 mg to simvastatin capsules 40 mg) only compares these 2 groups: ABT-143 capsules 5/135 mg and simvastatin capsules 40 mg, therefore there are only results for these 2 groups and not all 4 groups for this outcome measure. For the other pre-specified outcome measures, median percent change in triglycerides from baseline to the final visit and mean percent change in HDL-C from baseline to the final visit for the full analysis sets, all 3 ABT-143 capsules 20/135 mg, 10/135 mg, and 5/135 mg groups were compared to the simvastatin capsules 40 mg group, therefore there are results for all 4 treatment groups for these outcome measures.
