“We continue to be encouraged by new data generated and presented at ESC 2023 which continues to validate and underscore the clinical and therapeutic value of IPE and VASCEPA/VAZKEPA for clinicians and tens of millions of patients globally,” said Nabil Abadir, MB. CH.B., SVP, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Global Medical Affairs, Amarin. “These data provide additional evidence for clinicians to make the best therapeutic choice possible for their patients and should bolster confidence in VASCEPA/VAZKEPA as a proven treatment option on top of statins to reduce CV risk and to help optimize treatment in appropriate high-risk patients. We are proud of the continued work that is being done to enhance the proven efficacy of VASCEPA/VAZKEPA in cardiovascular risk reduction while providing support to investigators to explore other ways in which VASCEPA can potentially help patients and impact public health.”
