Summary
Brief summary
The objective of the study is to evaluate the effect of Rimonabant 20mg in comparison to
placebo, on HDL and VLDL lipoprotein kinetics, over a 12 months period.

Primary objectives:

- To assess effect of Rimonabant on HDL ApoA-I fractional catabolic rate (FCR).

Secondary objectives:

- To assess effect of Rimonabant on HDL ApoA-I production rate (PR) and on other
lipoprotein kinetics.

- To assess effect of Rimonabant on lipids, glycemic and inflammatory parameters

- To assess effect of Rimonabant on body composition

- To assess safety of Rimonabant
