The poster, titled "Effects of AMR101 on Lipid and Inflammatory Parameters in Patients with Diabetes Mellitus-2 (Type 2) and Residual Elevated Triglycerides (200-500 mg/dL) on Statin Therapy at LDL-C Goal: The ANCHOR Study," will present an analysis of the effect on lipid and inflammatory parameters in patients with diabetes from Amarin's Phase 3 ANCHOR study.
