  • All Eyes Now Focusing On Acquisition Of Amarin [View instapost]
    Steve,

    AMRN Reduce It Outcomes trial results will surprise the critics. The longer BP waits to make an offer will just increase the buy out share price.
    I recently read a review of a study from the Archives of Internal Medicine done in 2005, titled “Effect of Different Anti-lipidemic Agents and Diets on Mortality: A Systematic review,” that may change our mind about the importance of your cholesterol on your health.
    Key points from the study:
    • The study harvested the best available evidence from a total of 97 studies which evaluated the effect on mortality by lowering lipids with various methods.
    • 137,140 individuals received various intervention and 138,976 individuals were controls.
    • Omega-3 fats (fish oils) did the best job at reducing death from all causes (mean reduction of 23%) and death from heart problems (mean reduction 32%), but did the worst job at lowering blood cholesterol levels.
    • Statin drugs did the best at lowering blood cholesterol and were 10 times more effective than omega-3 fats, however omega-3 fats were 44% more effective than Statin drugs in reducing cardiac related deaths and 32% more effective in reducing death from all reasons.
    • “Omega-3 fatty acids lower cholesterol levels to a very small extent which indicates their beneficial effects are from some other means, such as their anti-rhythmic properties, their membrane stabilizing effects, as well as their anti-inflammatory properties” from Dr. Dan Murphy
    This study is extremely important because the results of this study question whether lowering cholesterol should be such a focus for overall health. Omega-3 fats anti-rhythmic, anti-inflammatory, and cell membrane stabilizing effects theoretically suggest that the main focus should not be on lowering cholesterol, but improving the overall environment of the body that the cholesterol operates through reduction of inflammation and improvement of overall health with proper lifestyle changes.

  • Amarin Vascepa Sales Data Misleading [View instapost]
    I am an investor in AMRN and also have been taking Vascepa for the last two months. I am refilling the 30 day prescription tomorrow for the second time. Amrn's coupon discount program takes $75.00 off the prescription price for up to 12 refills. My cost at Sams Wholesale Pharmacy is $119.00. My experience with the drug has been positive with no side effects. I have spread the word to my friends who are taking over the counter fish oil pills to switch to Vascepa.

  • Italian OTC Fish Oil Study Has No Bearing On Vascepa Outcomes [View instapost]
    Vascepa Reduce It outcomes trial will surprise some of AMRN biggest critics.

    Omega-3 fats (fish oils) did the best job at reducing death from all causes (mean reduction of 23%) and death from heart problems (mean reduction 32%), but did the worst job at lowering blood cholesterol levels.
    • Statin drugs did the best at lowering blood cholesterol and were 10 times more effective than omega-3 fats, however omega-3 fats were 44% more effective than Statin drugs in reducing cardiac related deaths and 32% more effective in reducing death from all reasons.

    Steve nice last name back to you.

    Anyone who does not have insurance or a very high deductible are still eligible for the maximum $75.00 discount offered under AMRN coupon program good for 12 refills. We should start seeing more people who are buying OTC fish oil pills have their doctor write a prescription for Vascepa like I did.
