New cholesterol drug available

  • Comment

Colesevelam hydrochloride (Cholestagel), a new non-absorbed cholesterol-lowering agent aimed at treating adult patients with primary hypercholesterolemia, has been launched in Europe.

Developed by Genzyme, the product can be taken as adjunctive therapy to diet, in combination with other cholesterol-lowering medications such as statins, or alone, where statins are inappropriate or not well-tolerated.
