Fibre 200 ®
Lipid Lowering Agent
Fenofibrate is a fibric acid derivative. Fenofibrate is rapidly hydrolyzed after oral ingestion to its pharmacologically active form, fenofibric acid. Fenofibric acid produces reductions in total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, Apo-lipoprotein B, Total triglycerides and VLDL. In addition, treatment with Fenofibrate results in increases in HDL and apo-proteins apoAI apoAII. Fenofibrate also reduces serum uric acid levels in hyperuricemic and normal individuals by increasing the urinary excretion of uric acid. The micronised form of Fenofibrate has enhanced absorption over the non-micronised formulation.
