  Purpose

Eprotirome is a liver selective thyroid hormone that can reduce several independent risk factors for cardiovascular disease, while an euthyroid state is preserved in the extrahepatic tissue.

The purpose of this Phase III study is to assess the long-term efficacy and safety of Eprotirome in Patients with heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolaemia who are on optimal standard of care.
