Description

This is a clinical study sponsored by Amgen Inc. It is a study being done for patients that are at high risk for experiencing a cardiovascular event (like a heart attack or stroke). Elevated cholesterol, in particular low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), can lead to obstructing fatty deposits in blood vessels that can greatly increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease or experiencing a cardiovascular event. The purpose of this research study is to assess whether lowering of cholesterol blood level can reduce your risk for major cardiovascular events (for example, heart attack or stroke) when evolocumab is taken in addition to current medical therapy as directed by a doctor, which may include a medication for the treatment of abnormal cholesterol blood levels called statins.
