Further study details as provided by Takeda:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Frequency of adverse events [ Time Frame: For 12 months ]
    The frequencies of all adverse events observed during the observation period will be tabulated by type and seriousness. Adverse events are defined as unfavorable and unintended signs, symptoms or diseases temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product, regardless of relationship to the medicinal product.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Changes from baseline in lipid parameters [ Time Frame: From Baseline and Month12 ]
    For lipid parameters such as triglycerides (TG), total cholesterol (TC), LDL cholesterol (LDL-C), HDL cholesterol (HDL-C), Non-HDL- C, observed values (or converted values) and percent changes (%) from baseline in these valuesare tabulated at each observational point.

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Omega-3 fatty acid ethyl esters 2 g
Omega-3 fatty acid ethyl esters 2 g, administered orally once or twice daily after meals
Drug: Omega-3 fatty acid ethyl esters
Omega-3 fatty acid ethyl esters granular capsules
Other Name: Lotriga Granular Capsules

Detailed Description:
This special drug use surveillance on long-term use of granular capsule formulation of omega-3 fatty acid ethyl esters (Lotriga Granular Capsules) was designed to investigate the frequency of adverse events in patients with hyperlipidemia The usual adult dosage is 2 g of omega-3 fatty acid ethyl esters administered orally once daily after meals. However, the dosage can be increased up to twice daily (at a dose of 2 g) depending on the patient's triglyceride level.
