  Purpose

Primary Objective:

To evaluate the effect of alirocumab SAR236553 (REGN727) on low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels after 24 weeks of treatment in comparison with placebo.

Secondary Objectives:

  • To evaluate the effect of alirocumab SAR236553 (REGN727) in comparison with placebo on LDL-C at other time points.
  • To evaluate the effects of alirocumab SAR236553 (REGN727) on other lipid parameters.
  • To evaluate the safety and tolerability of alirocumab SAR236553 (REGN727).
