Clinical trials
Bezafibrate Infarction Prevention study. A trial that asked whether increasing HDL-C and reducing triglycerides (TGs) using bezafibrate would reduce acute MIs and sudden death linked to coronary atherosclerosis.
With bezafibrate, HDL-C increased by 18%, TGs decreased by 21%; acute MIs or sudden death occurred in 14% of bezafibrate patients vs 15% of placebo patients; in patients with high baseline TGs, there was a 40% reduction in cumulative probability of MI or sudden death in bezafibrate patients.

Randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled; 3090 patients—1548 bezafibrate, 1542 placebo, mean age 60, with previous MI or stable angina and a certain lipid profile.

BIP enrollee lipid profile
Total serum cholesterol 180–250 mg/dl, HDL-C ≤ 45 mg/ dl, TGs ≤ 300 mg/dl and LDL-C ≤ 180 mg/dl or ≤ 160 mg/dl for patients < age 50.
