Med­i­cines Co, Al­ny­lam gen­er­ate pos­i­tive buzz with ev­i­dence of a durable, 6-month LDL re­sponse to PC­SK9 ri­val

A sin­gle 300 mg in­jec­tion of their RNAi drug — now dubbed in­clisir­an — reg­is­tered a mean 43% re­duc­tion in bad LDL cho­les­terol af­ter 180 days, trig­ger­ing some ex­cit­ed buzz among the an­a­lysts fol­low­ing this pro­gram.
