"– There are already quite a number of medicines to lower blood fats that can be combined in different ways, but for those who can't take statins would bempediksyra could be an option in the long term, " says Anders G. Olsson, seniorprofessor at Linköping university, to Läkemedelsvärlden."

"A disturbing discovery, however, was that the number of deaths one month after the last behandlingsdos was 13 of the 1 488 people in the group that received bempediksyra, compared with two out of 742 in the placebo group. To investigate this further, a new, major phase III study underway. Includes 12 600 persons and the study is expected to be completed in 2022."
