  Purpose

Mixed or combined hyperlipidemia is a common metabolic disorder characterized by both hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglyceridemia. Statins and fibrates have complementary mechanisms and can be coadministered to patients with mixed hyperlipidemia. The overall objective of the study is to compare the efficacy and safety of combining fenofibrate and simvastatin versus atorvastatin monotherapy in patients with mixed hyperlipidemia at risk of cardiovascular diseases.


Condition Intervention Phase
Hyperlipidemia
Drug: fenofibrate / simvastatin
Drug: Atorvastatin

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multicenter, Double-Blind, Randomized, Forced-Titration Study to Compare the Efficacy and Safety of the Combination of 145 mg Fenofibrate and 20 or 40 mg Simvastatin With Atorvastatin Monotherapy in Patients With Mixed Dyslipidemia at Risk of Cardiovascular Disease Not Adequately Controlled by 10 mg Atorvastatin Alone
