REDUCE-IT Results Indicate Prescription Icosapent Ethyl Key Intervention for High-Risk Cardiovascular Patients

Deepak L. Bhatt, M.D., M.P.H., Executive Director of Interventional Cardiovascular Programs at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and principal investigator of REDUCE-IT® recently shared in a Late-Breaking Science Presentation at ESC Congress 2021 a presentation titled “Reduction in Ischemic Events, Including Cardiovascular Mortality, with Icosapent Ethyl in Patients with Prior Myocardial Infarction: REDUCE-IT PRIOR MI.” Presenting on behalf of all authors, the investigator suggested data from REDUCE-IT MI “…Provides valuable data supporting an effective new approach to preventing ischemic events using prescription Icosapent ethyl in patients who have had previous heart attacks.” Dr. Bhatt noted, “The benefits in these heart attack patients at risk for another cardiovascular event are particularly important given these patients are at elevated risk for recurrent cardiovascular problems.” Do these results further strengthen the case for pure eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) in the form of prescription Icosapent ethyl as a key intervention beyond statins for significant risk in this high-risk population?
