Vascepa Medical Research Studies

Up-to-date List of Vascepa Medical Research Studies

What Research is Being Done?

A clinical study involves research using human volunteers (also called participants) that is intended to add to medical knowledge. There are two main types of clinical studies: clinical trials (also called interventional studies) and observational studies. Following list includes both interventional and observational studies.

Latest Vascepa Medical Research Studies

Rank Status Study
1 Recruiting PK Study Comparing Metformin Eicosapentaenoate to a Combined Dose of Metformin Hydrochloride and Ethyl Ester EPA
Conditions: Diabetes Mellitus, Non-Insulin-Dependent;   Hypertriglyceridemia
Interventions: Drug: Metformin Eicosapentaenoate;   Drug: Metformin HCl and Vascepa
Outcome Measure: AUC following single and repeat single oral administration of metformin eicosapentaenoate, metformin hydrochloride and Vascepa
2 Recruiting A Study of AMR101 to Evaluate Its Ability to Reduce Cardiovascular Events in High Risk Patients With Hypertriglyceridemia and on Statin. The Primary Objective is to Evaluate the Effect of 4 g/Day AMR101 for Preventing the Occurrence of a First Major Cardiovascular Event.
Condition: Cardiovascular Diseases
Interventions: Drug: AMR101;   Drug: Placebo
Outcome Measures: Composite endpoint of CV death, MI, stroke, coronary revascularization, and hospitalization for unstable angina.;   Incidence of additional cardiovascular events, lipid and lipoprotein levels, subgroup analyses such as: diabetics, etc.
3 Recruiting Mediators of Abnormal Reproductive Function in Obesity (MARO)
Conditions: Infertility, Female;   Obesity
Interventions: Other: Microdialysis;   Dietary Supplement: Vascepa - Fish Oil;   Drug: Aspirin;   Drug: Pioglitazone
Outcome Measures: Area under curve (AUC)- urinary pregnandiol glucuronide (Pdg);   Estradiol;   Luteinizing hormone (LH);   Estrone conjugates (E1c)
4 Unknown  N-3 Fatty Acids for the Prevention of Atrial Fibrillation in Patients With Acute Heart Failure
Conditions: Acute Heart Failure;   Acute Myocardial Infarction
Intervention: Drug: Epadel, Eicosapentaenoic acid
Outcome Measure: detection of atrial fibrillation on ECG monitoring

These studies may lead to new treatments and are adding insight into Vascepa etiology and treatment.

A major focus of Vascepa research is the development of new drugs and other treatment options. Studies seek to identify new drugs to treat various related disorders and to find safer, more effective doses for medications already being used. Other research is aimed at identifying receptors or drug targets.
