However, I would think that AMRN could come up with some data from RI to support it's use in statin intolerant patients. We know 50% of patients started on a statin have stopped the med for whatever reason after 1 year We also know that 10-20% of patients have a significant degree of statin intolerance. Many of these can remain on a statin at lower doses , changing the statin, or using supplements like Co Q10 which may help. Given those large numbers of patients in an 8000+ patient study and assuming a ?10 discontinuation rate at some point you would think they could generate some data on folks who ended up on Vascepa alone? Maybe they have that data but have not shared it yet? BTW, I think many physicians would feel similar to myself and not hesitate to prescribe V alone in at risk statin intolerant patients off label.
