*CHD data are based on surveillance data, survey data, outpatient and inpatient visits for angina and first acute myocardial infarction.
†Total costs comprise direct healthcare costs, productivity losses plus informal patient care. ‡In the study, 2690 recent MI patients received Repatha®, 2254 of whom achieved LDL-C levels <55 mg/dl. §25% RRR reported as the key secondary endpoint: composite of cardiovascular death, MI or stroke. HR: 0.75; 95% CI: 0.62-0.91; p=0.003. ARR: 3.2%; 95% CI: 1.2-5.2.
