Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare at a .05 level of significance, after 6 weeks of oral administration of double-blind treatment the percent change from baseline to average triglycerides (TG), week 5-6 between 5, 10 and 20 mg

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent changes from baseline to average at week 5-6 of total cholesterol (TC), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), non-HDL-C, apolipoprotein A1 (ApoA1), and free fatty acid (FFA) levels
