FENOCARD helps reduce cholesterol and triglycerides (fatty acids) in the blood. High levels of these types of fat in the blood are associated with an increased risk of atherosclerosis (clogged arteries).
Fenocard, a fibric acid derivative, lowers plasma triglyceride by activating lipoprotein lipase thus increasing catabolism of VLDL w/ consequent increase in HDL levels.
