About Severe Hypertriglyceridemia Study

Severe hypertriglyceridemia is a condition characterized by high levels, typically at or above 500 mg/dL. This condition is concerning because it can significantly increase the risk of developing acute pancreatitis, an inflammation of the pancreas.

Hightower Clinical conducted a study to assess the effectiveness of a new drug treatment in managing triglyceride levels in individuals with severe hypertriglyceridemia. The goal was to evaluate the drug’s ability to reduce the risk of complications associated with this condition.
