Mentions

Bempedoic acid is a once-a-day oral medication that will be commercially known as Nexletol. The FDA approved it for use with a healthy diet and the maximum dose of statins a patient tolerates. Studies show the new drug can reduce what doctors call low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, what you may know as LDL, the "bad" cholesterol that can lead to heart problems or strokes.

The drug, bempedoic acid, is the first in a new class of drugs to treat low-density-lipoprotein cholesterol, also called “bad” cholesterol, which causes the buildup of fatty deposits in the arteries, reducing blood and oxygen flow.
