Statin Intolerance, Inclisarin, and the VICTORION-INITIATE Trial

The VICTORION-INIATATE study demonstrated that initiating inclisiran, a highly potent lipid-lowering therapy, upon failure to achieve lipid targets with statins, yielded superior outcomes compared to standard care. This approach facilitated a greater proportion of patients in reaching LDL-C targets recommended by current guidelines. Presently, the conventional management of cholesterol disorders in the US routinely falls short of attaining treatment goals for the majority of patients.

In this interview, Michael J. Koren, MD, FACC, and C. Noel Bairey Merz, MD, FACC discuss results from the VICTORION-INITIATE randomized trial.
