Inclisiran (The Medicines Company/Alnylam Pharmaceuticals) is a systemically delivered siRNA therapeutic targeting mRNA for PCSK9. Inclisiran lowers both intracellular and extracellular PCSK9, though it is unclear whether that confers any advantages over monoclonal antibodies, which only impact extracellular PCSK9.
While inclisiran is somewhat late to the market relative to current PCSK9-inhibiting monoclonal antibodies, The Medicines Company hopes to disrupt the status quo with dosing every six months, along with price competition. The company also has initiated a cardiovascular outcomes trial that is designed to bolster its marketing by showing a numerically greater benefit on cardiovascular events than current PCSK9 inhibitors did in their studies, though this will just be due to trial design rather than a real advantage of the drug.
