Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:REGN) and partner Sanofi (NYSE:SNY) (OTCQB:SNYNF) report that their PCSK9 inhibitor alirocumab met its primary endpoint of a greater percent reduction from baseline in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) at 24 weeks compared to placebo or active comparator in nine Phase 3 clinical trials involving over 5,000 patients (including the MONO trial). The results were consistent with earlier alirocumab trials.

Three additional Phase 3 trials are ongoing.
