The hypolipidemic action of fibrates has recently been shown to involve the activation of peroxisome proliferator activated receptors establishing a molecular mechanism for this class of drugs. Increasing clinical trial evidence supports the efficacy of fibrates in the treatment of dyslipoproteinemias, particularly in patients with hypertriglyceridemia and low high-density lipoproteins.
