‘Game changing’ cholesterol lowering drug? NO

Last week myself and a number of eminent doctors ( with no financial ties to the drug industry) wrote to our health watchdog NICE copying in the Secretary of State for Health asking them to immediately withdraw approval of new cholesterol lowering injection drug Inclisiran. We cited 6 main concerns which you can read in full below but most importantly the drug has already been demonstrated in the drug industry’s own clinical trials to NOT prevent a single heart attack, stroke or death in short term trials and long term data will not be available until 2026.
