The effect of bezafibrate on very low density lipoprotein (VLDL), intermediate density lipoprotein (IDL), and low density lipoprotein (LDL) composition in type 1 diabetes associated with hypercholesterolaemia or combined hyperlipidaemia.

Lipoprotein composition was examined in type 1 diabetic subjects with hypercholesterolaemia +/- hypertriglyceridaemia during a 3-month double-blind placebo controlled assessment of bezafibrate therapy. The predominant effect was on lipoprotein lipid content. In those with hypercholesterolaemia alone, bezafibrate significantly reduced the cholesterol… CONTINUE READING
