Purpose of the study
Treatment
Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
Trial participants who meet the inclusion/exclusion criteria and provide Informed Consent. Allocation concealment is performed by sealed opaque envelopes. Fenofibrate/Placebo tablets will be provided in numbered containers. Central randomization is performed via a central computer.
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
The patients will be allocated to treatment groups by use of block randomization with strata defined by gender, each with separate computer-generated treatment allocation sequences with permuted block sizes in random order. All trial staff, investigators and participants are blinded to the randomization schedule.
Masking / blinding
Blinded (masking used)
Who is / are masked / blinded?
