Main results


The PCSK9-antibody alirocumab produced significant LDL-C reductions in individuals with hypercholesterolemia with either T2DM or T1DM at high CV risk receiving insulin treatment, with no apparent effect on overall safety or measures of glycemic control. These data show that the concomitant therapy with alirocumab and insulin is feasible.
