Juxtapid (lomitapide) gains FDA approval

Prescription bottle - BSN

(Best Syndication News) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Juxtapid (lomitapide) to treat a rare homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH) disorder. Juxtapid should lower the low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels, the total cholesterol, apolipoprotein B, and non-high-density lipoprotein (non-HDL) cholesterol. The drug should be prescribed in conjunction with a low fat diet and other lipid reduction treatments.

In the United States, around one in one million people have HoFH. People with the rare condition do not effectively remove “bad” LDL cholesterol from their body. This puts HoFH individuals at an increased risk for heart attacks and death, often before the age of 30.
