What is PRALUENT® (alirocumab)?

PRALUENT is an injectable prescription medicine used:

  • in adults with cardiovascular disease to reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, and certain types of chest pain conditions (unstable angina) requiring hospitalization.
  • along with diet, alone or together with other cholesterol-lowering medicines in adults with high blood cholesterol levels called primary hyperlipidemia (including a type of high cholesterol called heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia), to reduce low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) or bad cholesterol.
  • along with other LDL-lowering treatments in adults with a type of high cholesterol called homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia who need additional lowering of LDL-C.

It is not known if PRALUENT is safe and effective in children.
