  • Change of gene activity of markers in circulating monocytes between Baseline and 6 weeks of fenofibrate treatment [ Time Frame: Between Baseline and 6 weeks ]
    The calculation is the difference between the gene expression intensity after 6 weeks of treatment and the gene expression intensity at Baseline
  • DNA methylation pattern [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
