RVX-208, also known as Apabetalone, is a potent inhibitor of BET bromodomains. RVX-208 functions by removing atherosclerotic plaque via reverse cholesterol transport (RCT). RVX-208 increases the production of ApoA-I in hepatocytes in vitro, and in vivo in monkeys and humans, which results in increased HDL-C, but the molecular target was not previously reported. RVX-208 may be a promising new approach to the treatment of atherosclerosis.
