May 16, 2022 8:04 AM

Amarin Corporation plc (NASDAQ: AMRN) today announced that research on the potential population health impact and cost-effectiveness of VASCEPA® (icosapent ethyl), presented in two poster presentations at the American Heart Association’s Quality of Care and Outcomes Research Scientific Sessions in Reston, VA, May 13-14, 2022, showcased significant potential to reduce major cardiovascular (CV) events and associated costs.

The posters explored the potential for icosapent ethyl to prevent atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease-related events and associated costs among 3.6 million1 patients estimated to be eligible for treatment according to REDUCE-IT® trial criteria, and cost-effectiveness of treatment with icosapent ethyl among appropriate adult patients in the United States.

Amarin-supported abstracts to be presented at #QCOR22 included:

“The AHA has been a powerful voice in calling attention to the increasing health and economic burden on patients and our health systems from inadequately prioritizing and addressing heart disease and related risks,” said Karim Mikhail, Amarin’s president and chief executive officer. “The analyses presented at QCOR reinforce that icosapent ethyl, if prescribed and used consistently to treat eligible patients, can and should be an important tool in helping to reduce the staggering impacts and costs of cardiovascular disease in the U.S.”
