What is Lomitapide
Lomitapide is a microsomal triglyceride transfer protein (MTP) inhibitor used in homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH) patients. It is marketed under the name Juxtapid (R).
Lomitapide mechanism of action
Within the lumen of the endoplasmic reticulum, lomitapide inhibits microsomal triglyceride transfer protein (MTP), which prevents the formation of apolipoprotein B, and, thus, the formation of VLDL and chylomicrons as well. Altogether, this leads to a reduction of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol.
