Brief Summary:
The current study is designed to test the efficacy, safety and tolerability of LCP-AtorFen, a combination of atorvastatin and fenofibrate.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Dyslipidemia Drug: LCP-AtorFen Drug: atorvastatin Drug: fenofibrate Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, 12 week study with a 52-week open-label follow-up to evaluate the safety and efficacy of LCP-AtorFen (the combination of atorvastatin and fenofibrate) in the treatment of hyperlipidemia.

After a wash-out phase, eligible patients will be randomized on a 1:1:1 ratio to either LCP-AtorFen, atorvastatin or fenofibrate for 12 weeks. After the completion of the 12-week phase, all eligible patients will be offered to receive open-label LCP-AtorFen for another 52 weeks.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent Changes From Baseline to End-of-treatment in Non-HDL Cholesterol, HDL Cholesterol, and Triglycerides by LCP-AtorFen Versus Atorvastatin Monotherapy [ Time Frame: baseline(randomization) to 12 weeks ]
    Mean percent change from baseline to end-of-treatment (12 weeks) for non-HDL cholesterol and triglycerides and the mean percent change from baseline to end-of-treatment for HDL cholesterol for AtorFen 40/100mg fixed-dose combination tablet versus atorvastatin 40mg tablet.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent Changes From Baseline to End-of-treatment in Non-HDL, HDL and LDL Cholesterol by LCP-AtorFen Versus Fenofibrate Monotherapy [ Time Frame: baseline (week 0) to 12 weeks ]
    Mean percent changes from baseline (Visit 3, Week 0) to end-of-treatment (Visit 6; Week 12) in non-HDL, HDL and LDL cholesterol by LCP-AtorFen versus fenofibrate monotherapy
