*The subject depicted is not a real patient. †p-values are nominal. Repatha® reduced the risk of the key secondary endpoint by 15% (p=0.009) in patients with a remote MI (>12 months). The p-value for interaction between recent and remote MI groups was not significant (p-int=0.24). ‡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.
