New cholesterol drug coming soon?

One of the problems with lipid lowering drugs is that they either don’t work (prescription and OTC) or have side effects (Statins). There is a new class of a cholesterol lowering drug called ALIROCUMAB that is currently being tested in clinical trials. There have been 9 trials where this drug has been tested against placebos and statins and not only did it show lipid lowering capabilities, it also showed lower cardiovascular events! Yes, this will probably be very expensive when it becomes available and yes, your insurance company will probably refuse to pay for it-but at least we now may have an alternative for those people who cannot tolerate statins.
