In our study, bezafibrate in short-acting formula and long-acting formula, administered to hyperlipidaemic patients, resulted in a significant lowering of atherogenic lipids and lipoproteins (chol.-T, LDL and VLDL-chol., apolipoprotein B and VDLD-TR), and a marked increase in the levels of HDL, HDL2, HDL3-chol. and apolipoprotein A with a protective action as regards vascular atherosclerotic damage. The long-acting formula showed a greater effectiveness.
