Hypercholesterolemia Therapeutics Pipeline Analysis, 2017 - Clinical Trials & Results and Other Developments

Hypercholesterolemia is a disorder characterised by abnormally increased levels of cholesterol in the blood. The high levels of cholesterol increase a person's risk of developing cardiovascular diseases such as coronary artery disease, which involve build-up of plaque in the coronary arteries, in turn putting a person across the risk of suffering a heart attack. The main causes of hypercholesterolemia include heredity, diet high in saturated fats and cholesterol, other diseases such as diabetes mellitus, renal diseases and obesity, along with lifestyle changes including little exercise, smoking, alcoholism and stress. Lifestyle changes, dietary changes, and medications can control the disease to some extent. The main class of drugs prescribed to lower the increased cholesterol levels is called statins or HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, and the other classes of drugs are in development phase. The hypercholesterolemia therapeutic pipeline is expected to witness growth mainly due to technological advancements in the field, along with increasing awareness regarding different cardiovascular diseases and the availability of their treatment options. Increasing prevalence of diabetes and obesity disorders and changing lifestyle of people are further contributing to the incidence of hypercholesterolemia, globally.
