U.S. Patent No. 6,156,727. Anti-atherosclerotic peptides and a transgenic mouse model of atherosclerosis.
U.S. Patent No 6,506,880. Synthetic peptides that enhance atherogenic lipoprotein uptake and lower plasma cholesterol.
U.S. Patent No. 7,653,771. Synthetic single domain polypeptides mimicking apolipoprotien F, Anantharamaiah.
Apolipoprotein E (Apo E) is a 299 amino acid protein that plays an important role in lipoprotein metabolism. AEM-28 is a 28 amino acid mimetic of Apo E that contains a domain that anchors into a lipoprotein surface while also providing the Apo E binding domain that is removed by heparin sulfate receptors in the liver. AEM-28 as an Apo E mimetic has the potential to restore the ability of atherogenic lipoproteins to be cleared from the plasma, completing the reverse cholesterol transport pathway, and thereby reducing cardiovascular risk. This is an important mechanism of action for AEM-28. For patients that lack LDL receptors (Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia or HoFH), have Severe Refractory Hypercholesterolemia, or have acute coronary syndrome, AEM-28 may provide a therapeutic solution.

Apolipoprotein E (Apo E) is in a class of protein that occurs throughout the body. Apo E is essential for the normal metabolism of cholesterol and triglycerides. After a meal, the postprandial (or post-meal) lipid load is packaged in lipoproteins and secreted into the blood stream. Apo E targets cholesterol and triglyceride rich lipoproteins to specific receptors in the liver, decreasing the levels in the blood. Elevated plasma cholesterol and triglycerides are independent risk factors for atherosclerosis, the buildup of cholesterol rich lesions and plaques in the arteries. Atherosclerosis is the major cause of cardiovascular disease, peripheral artery disease and cerebral artery disease, and can cause heart attack, loss of limbs and stroke. Defective lipid metabolism also plays an important role in the development of adult onset diabetes mellitus (Type 2 diabetes), and diabetics are particularly vulnerable to atherosclerosis, heart and peripheral artery diseases.

PCSK9 (proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9) is a protein that regulates low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor levels on hepatocytes; gain-of-function human mutations in PCSK9 are associated with hypercholesterolemia while loss-of-function mutations are associated with lower levels of LDL cholesterol and a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.
Hypercholesterolemia, also called high cholesterol, is the presence of high levels of cholesterol in the blood. It is a form of hyperlipidemia, high blood lipids, and hyperlipoproteinemia (elevated levels of lipoproteins in the blood).
Hypercholesterolemia is a condition characterized by very high levels of cholesterol in the blood which is known to increase the risk of coronary artery disease, the leading cause of death in the U.S. Some forms of hypercholesterolemia can be treated through dietary restrictions, lifestyle modifications (e.g., exercise and smoking cessation) and medicines such as statins.
Inclisiran is an experimental drug for the treatment of patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), ASCVD risk equivalents and heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HeFH). It is a small interfering RNA that inhibits translation of the protein PCSK9.

Designated Compound means BMS-201,038; prodrugs or metabolites of BMS-201,038, to the extent any such prodrug or metabolite is covered by a composition claim in a Composition Patent; and stereoisomers, hydrates, anhydrides, solvates, salt forms, or polymorphs of BMS-201,038 or any compounds; furthermore, in the case of a prodrug or metabolite as referred to above, the compound in question will constitute a Designated Compound hereunder only if the making, use or sale of such compound is necessary for or results from the making, use and sale of BMS-210,038 within the Field of Use.
The University completed a Phase II clinical trial of lomitapide for the treatment of patients with called homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, or HoFH.
Licensee's lead compound, lomitapide, is a microsomal triglyceride transfer protein inhibitor, or MTP-I, which limits secretion of cholesterol and triglycerides from the intestines and the liver, the main sources of lipids in the body. Licensee is initially developing lomitapide as an oral, once-a-day treatment for patients with a rare genetic lipid disorder called homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, or HoFH. These patients are at very high risk of experiencing life threatening events at an early age as a result of extremely elevated cholesterol levels in the blood. Licensee believe that lomitapide, either on a stand-alone basis or in combination with other drugs, has the potential to help these patients achieve recommended target levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, or LDL-C.
