The proprotein convertase subtilisin-kexin 9 (PCSK9) inhibitor alirocumab was shown to reduce the rates of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) by 15% compared with placebo in patients with persistently high cholesterol despite high-intensity statin therapy, according to a study presented March 10, 2018 at the American College of Cardiologys 67th Annual Scientific Session in Orlando, Florida.
