Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a complex manifestation of underlying atherosclerotic disease and is closely associated with coronary and cerebrovascular disease. Current treatment practice largely focuses on both lifestyle modifications and the use of statins, antihypertensives, and antiplatelet agents as cornerstone therapies to prevent events such as MI and stroke in these patients. The emergence of PCSK9 inhibitors to achieve aggressive LDL cholesterol lowering on top of statins is another therapeutic option for PAD patients.

  • What percentage of PAD patients receive drug therapy within six months of diagnosis, and how quickly do they receive it?
  • What percentage of patients progress to later lines of therapy within one year of diagnosis?
  • What percentage of PAD patients are treated with monotherapy versus combination therapy? What are the most commonly used combinations?
  • What are the product-level compliance and persistency rates among drug-treated patients with PAD?
