About PCSK9 Forum

What is PCSK9?

PCSK9 is a protein which is critically important in regulating low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels by significantly increasing the clearance of LDL-C by the liver.

Clinical studies show that inhibition of PCSK9 lowers serum LDL-cholesterol levels beyond the effects of current therapies, with consistent 50-60% reductions in LDL-C levels even in patients on statin treatment.1 2

Potentially, PCSK9 inhibitors may allow patients at high risk of premature cardiovascular death (including those with the common genetic condition, familial hypercholesterolaemia) to achieve LDL-cholesterol targets.
