GISSI-Prevenzione – a multicenter, randomized, open-label clinical study in patients with recent myocardial infarction (less than 3 months), taking Omacor, and not taking the drug Omacor. Results obtained after 3.5 years of observation in patients receiving Omacor 1 g per day showed a significant reduction in the combined endpoint of criteria, including component all-cause mortality, nonfatal myocardial infarction, and stroke (relative risk reduction of 15%, p = 0 , 0226) in patients taking Omacor alone compared to control group. It has been shown to reduce the predetermined criteria secondary endpoint, including death due to cardiovascular disease, non-fatal myocardial infarction and stroke (relative risk reduction of 20%, p = 0.0082) in patients taking only Omacor compared with the control group. The study GISSI-Heart Failure Omacor studied the effect on reducing mortality and hospitalization for cardiovascular disease in patients with chronic heart failure (II-IV functional class NYHA classification) treated with standard medical therapy. The results showed a reduction criteria of both endpoints, including death from all causes (relative risk reduction 9%, p = 0.041), and death from any cause and hospitalization due to cardiovascular events (relative risk reduction of 8%, p = 0.009) . Secondary analyzes of the primary hospitalization for ventricular arrhythmias showed a relative risk reduction of 28% (p = 0.013) in the group receiving the drug Omacor, compared with the placebo group. According to the results shown subanalysis was the relative increase in left ventricular ejection fraction of 8.1%, 11.1% and 11.5% after 1, 2 and 3, respectively in the group receiving the drug Omacor, compared with 6.3%, 8 , 2% and 9.9% in the placebo group (p = 0.005).
