  1. ILLUMINATE Trial Design: ILLUMINATE was a randomized trial of torcetrapib, a cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) inhibitor, in addition to atorvastatin (n = 7,533) vs. atorvastatin alone (n = 7,534) in patients at high risk for CV events. Primary endpoint was major CV event. • Results • Trial stopped early due to ↑ events in torcetrapib group • Increase in HDL at 12 months ↑ in torcetrapib group (+34.2 mg/dl vs. +0.5 mg/dl, p < 0.001) • Systolic BP (SBP) increase at 12 months ↑ in torcetrapib group (5.4 mm Hg vs. 0.9 mm Hg, p < 0.001) • Increases also were observed in sodium, bicarbonate, and aldosterone in torcetrapib group • Primary endpoint of MACE ↑ in torcetrapib group, as did both CV and non-CV deaths (Figures) • Conclusions • Among patients at high risk for CV events, treatment with CETP inhibitor torcetrapib in addition to atorvastatin was associated with increased major CV events and increased mortality compared with atorvastatin alone, despite being highly effective in raising HDL • Increase in blood pressure with torcetrapib did not fully explain the increased mortality, which was due to both CV and non-CV causes • Those with greater increases in SBP actually had ↓ mortality rate than patients with less of increase in SBP Major CV Event (HR 1.25, p = 0.001) Death (HR 1.58, p = 0.006) % Torcetrapib + Atorvastatin Atorvastatin N Engl J Med 2007;357:2109-22
