Are we allowed to change the treatment from one PCSK9 inhibitor to another one? .We have a pacient with FH, MI at 50 years of age who has been on treatment with atorvastatin 80 mg/day and ezetimibe 10 mg/day. Approximately a year ago he was included in the Pfizer study with bococizumab. On this treatment he still had LDLc of 110 mg/dl. The study has been stopped recently, so we thought about changing the pacient's treatment to evolocumab. Are there any imune reactions expexted?
