  • Age: Adult subjects ≥ 50 (men) or ≥ 55 (women) to ˂ 80 years of age (either sex) and meeting lipid criteria
  • Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) ≥ 90 mg/dL (≥ 2.3 mmol/L) or non‑high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL) ≥ 120 mg/dL (≥ 3.1 mmol/L) at screening, or apolipoprotein B ≥ 80 mg/dL (≥ 1.56 µmol/L)
  • Evidence of at least one of the following at screening (without prior myocardial infarction or stroke):A. Significant coronary artery disease (CAD) B. Significant atherosclerotic cerebrovascular disease C. Significant peripheral arterial disease D. Diabetes mellitus
  • At least 1 high-risk feature
