The present study is assessing the efficacy and safety of AVE5530 (25 mg and 50 mg) in add-on to ongoing statin treatment in a double-blind manner in comparison with placebo, in the management of patients with primary hypercholesterolemia considered as inadequately controlled despite their ongoing statin treatment. The main objective is to evaluate the effects of the association AVE5530+statin on LDL-C level reduction after 12 weeks of treatment. The effects of AVE5530 on other lipid parameters will be assessed as secondary objectives.

Study summary:

The two doses of AVE5530 tested in this study are 25 mg and 50 mg taken in the evening, with dinner dosing. The study will include a screening phase up to 2 weeks, a double-blind treatment period of at least 12 months and can be variably extended up to approximately 18 months.
