Background. Hyperlipoproteinemia represents one of the major risk factors in the early atherosclerosis manifes-
tation, namely in the ischaemic heart disease. In patients after the myocardial infarction, mixed hyperlipoproteinemia
becomes the most frequently diagnosed impairment of the lipid metabolism. In the therapy, fibrates begin to play
an important role. A new remedy containing micronised fenofibrate (Fenofibrate 250 SR Pharmavit) was recently
registered for the Czech market. The aim of our study was to test its effects in almost 200 patients with mixed
Methods and Results. Into statistical analysis of the treatment effectiveness 187 persons (115 males, 72 females)
were included. Other characteristics of the studied group (mean ± SD): age 54.0±10.7 years, stature 172.0±8.7 cm,
weight, BMI 28.0±3.1. Prevalence of risk factors and clinical manifestations of the atherosclerosis: ICHS 18.2%,
myocardial infarction 7.5%, ICHDK 4.3%, CMP 5.3%, smoking 27.8%, arterial hypertension 63.6%, diabetes
mellitus 17.6%, positive family history in ICHS 50.3%. 44.9% persons had been treated with hypolipidemics. Basic
parameters of the lipid metabolism, cholesterol, LDL and HDL cholesterol and triglycerides were studied. Plasma
levels of uric acid, fibrinogen, glucose and other biochemical parameters were also used to monitor the safeness of
the treatment. Cholesterol concentration (7.05±0.91 mmol/l) decreased (6.14±0.89 mmol/l) almost by 15%. Trigly-
ceride concentration decrease (from 4.43±1.84 mmol/l to 2.64±1.34 mmol/l) was more intensive (41%). HDL-cho-
lesterol increased by almost 15%, while LDL-cholesterol decreased by 12%. Statistically significantly decreased
level of the uric acid (12%), fibrinogene decrease (8.4%) reached only marginal significance. Treatment was well
tolerated, only in one patient it was necessary to cut it prematurely.
Conclusions. According clinical tests which included almost 200 patients with mixed hyperlipoproteinemia,
Fenofibrate 250 SR Pharmavit stands for an effective and well tolerated hypolipidemics.
