Product Information

BMS-201038 is a MTP inhibitor. Lomitapid is a novel agent for the treatment of homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia. Lomitapide is an orally active inhibitor of microsomal triglyceride transfer protein that is indicated as an adjunct to a low-fat diet and other lipid-lowering treatments, including LDL apheresis where available for the reduction of LDL-C, total cholesterol, apolipoprotein B, and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol in adult patients with HoFH.

In Vitro

Lomitapide is an oral microsomal triglyceride transfer protein (MTP) inhibitor indicated for the treatment of patients with HoFH, a rare form of hypercholesterolemia that can lead to premature atherosclerotic disease. Lomitapide undergoes hepatic metabolism via cytochrome P-450 (CYP) isoenzyme 3A4 and interacts with CYP3A4 substrates including atorvastatin and simvastatin.


In Vivo

The use of lomitapide alone or in combination with other lipid-lowering modalities reduces plasma concentrations of low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) by a mean of more than 50%. Lomitapide is associated with significant gastrointestinal adverse effects and increases in hepatic fat levels. The bioavailability of the 50-mg lomitapide capsule is 7.1%. The mean half-life of lomitapide is 39.7 hours. Single-dose administration of lomitapide is shown to reduce serum triglycerides by 35% and 47% at 0.3- and 1-mg/kg doses, respectively. Multiple-dose treatment with lomitapide also results in dose dependent decrease in triglycerides (71%–87%), nonesterified fattyacids(33%–40%), and LDL-C(26-29%).
