Summary
Brief summary
Fenofibrate is a drug largely used in patients with type 2 diabetes and mixed dyslipidemia due to its effects of reducing triglycerides concentration and enhancing HDL cholesterol levels. Also there are a lot of evidences regarding the pleiotropic effects of fenofibrate such as: decrease in systemic inflammation and monocyte cytokine release, improvement in insulin sensitivity and hemostasis, important antioxidant, antithrombotic and antiplatelet activities.
In light of the foregoing data, the main purpose of this study was to investigate the role of fenofibrate on plasma MPO concentrations in patients with type 2 diabetes
