Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A new lipid regulating agent, Gemfibrozil was evaluated in different types of dyslipidaemias. Out of a total of 34 patients, all completed 12 weeks' treatment and 26 completed 24 weeks' of treatment. A significant reduction in total cholesterol, LDL-c triglyceride and apo-B and an increase in HDL cholesterol and its apoprotein--apo-A were observed. The patients belonged to hyperlipidaemias--types IIa, IIb, and IV. Patients' compliance was good and side effects were minimal.
