  In order to investigate the effect of fenofibrate on microcirculation, 16 patients (5 female, 11 male, age 58 +/- 8 years) were studied with the aid ofnailfold capillaroscopy before and after treatment with 200 mg fenofibrate per day over six weeks. Fenofibrate resulted in a significant decrease...

  BACKGROUND AND AIM: Hypertriglyceridemia is a risk factor for atherosclerosis that is typically associated with high concentrations of adhesionmolecules, impaired hemorrheology and an unfavourable low-density lipoprotein (LDL) subtype distribution. We hypothesised that some of these riskmarkers...

    Thirteen heterozygous familial hypercholesterolaemic patients were treated with lovastatin for 1 year, and were investigated for the effect on lipid profile, blood rheology and fibrinogen levels. A significant dose-dependent reduction in serum levels of total and LDL-cholesterol, Apo B and the...
