An International Study of Rimonabant in Dyslipidemia With AtheroGenic Risk In Abdominally Obese Patients
A Randomized, Double-Blind, Two-Arm Placebo-Controlled, Parallel-Group, Multicenter Study of Rimonabant 20 mg Once Daily in the Treatment of Atherogenic Dyslipidemia in Abdominally Obese Patients
The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of rimonabant 20 mg on HDL (high density lipoprotein) cholesterol and on TG (triglycerides) plasma levels over a period of one year when prescribed with a hypocaloric diet (600 kcal deficit per day) in abdominally obese patients with atherogenic dyslipidemia (low HDL and/or high TG plasma levels). The secondary objectives are to evaluate specific metabolic parameters, visceral fat (in selected sites), safety and tolerability of rimonabant 20 mg.
