Brief Summary:
To develop combination product of micronized fenofibrate plus pitavastatin, we would like to evaluate pharmacokinetic drug interaction by comparing the steady-state pharmacokinetic characteristics of each arms after repeated administrating Lipilfen cap. 160mg(micronized fenofibrate 160mg)by Dae Woong Pharma. and Livaro tab. 2mg (pitavastatin Ca 2mg) by Joong Wae Pharm. through 3 period by separately or combinedly.
