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.
