BACKGROUND Hyperhomocysteinemia is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Elevation in homocysteine levels has recently been demonstrated during lipid lowering treatment with fibrates. We compared the effect of a statin and a fibrate (atorvastatin and fenofibrate) on plasma levels of homocysteine and other thiol compounds in hyperlipidemic patients. METHOD AND RESULTS The study was of open randomized, parallel design with a preliminary screening phase, and a 6 week placebo period. After… CONTINUE READING
