Dose-related Effects of Repeated ETC-216 (recombinant Apolipoprotein A-I Milano/1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl Phosphatidylcholine Complexes) Administrations on Rabbit Lipid-rich Soft Plaques: in Vivo Assessment by Intravascular Ultrasound and Magnetic Resonance Imaging Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Mar, 2008 | Pubmed ID: 18342229 This study sought to evaluate in vivo the minimal dose of apolipoprotein (apo) A-I(Milano) phospholipid complex (recombinant apoA-I(Milano) and 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl phosphatidylcholine complexes [ETC-216]) able to induce atherosclerosis regression in a rabbit model of lipid-rich plaques.
