4 Down regulate HMGCoA reductase Reduce LDL receptor synthesis Esterified by ACAT (storage) The Fate of LDL PCSK9 prevents LDLR recycling LDLR

5 FH3: mutations in PCSK9 Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 PCSK9 is a protease which binds to LDL-R and directs them to lysosomes for degradation, rather than recycling to cell surface Loss of function (non-sense and some mis-sense) mutations lead to  LDL levels –2.6% of US blacks, LDL  28%, CHD  88% –3.2% of US whites, LDL  15%, CHD  47% (Cohen et al. NEJM 2006;354:1264) Rare gain of function (other mis-sense) mutations described which lead to severe FH –D374Y accounts for 2% of FH in UK –phenotype generally more severe than HeFH due to LDLR mutations –true homozygotes not described? Statins increase PCSK9 as well as LDLR activity – counterproductive Potential therapeutic target Tall, NEJM 2006;354:1310Horton et al. Trends Biochem Sci 2006;32:71Zhang et al. PNAS 2008;105:13045

11 Problems with Early Trials Available drugs of limited efficacy, poorly tolerated or both.Available drugs of limited efficacy, poorly tolerated or both. small differences between control and treated groups Clinical trial science poorly developed.Clinical trial science poorly developed. low end-point numbers poor data collection Lack of definitive outcomes: small reduction in CHD events (mainly non-fatal MI) no effect on overall mortality

17 Intensive Lipid Lowering with Atorvastatin in Patients with Stable Coronary Disease Treat to New Targets Trial (TNT) Population: 10,001 patients with CHD: previous MI, angina with objective evidence of atherosclerotic CHD, coronary revascularization. Protocol: CHD patients, LDL-C mg/dl ( mmol/l) 8 week run-in treatment with atorvastatin 10 mg/day excluded. If LDL -C <130mg/dl randomised to either atorvastatin 10mg/dl or 80mg/day. Median follow-up 4.9yrs. Primary end point: Occurrence of first CVD event; CHD death, non- fatal, non procedure - related MI, resuscitation after cardiac arrest, fatal or non fatal stroke..

20 Statin Therapy in Secondary Prevention Trials Event Rates Against LDL-C New Insights from TNT Statin trials show highly significant reductions in CHD events and stroke. The lower the LDL the better. Despite these dramatic effects there remains a significant residual risk.
