What is the

Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) is a type of heart disease caused by consistent high levels of bad cholesterol (LDL-C) in the blood that lead to the buildup of plaque on the walls of the arteries. In people with ASCVD, the plaque buildup has resulted in problems related to bad cholesterol, such as:

  • heart attack

  • stroke

  • blockages within the arteries, causing chest pain

If you have ASCVD, it's important to lower your bad cholesterol.

It is not known if LEQVIO® can decrease problems related to high levels of bad cholesterol, such as heart attacks or stroke.
