[Article in Czech]


In a specialized clinic for hyperlipoproteinaemias 15 patients with different types of hyperlipoproteinaemias were treated with bezafibrate (Bezalip R tablets a 200 mg of Boehringer Co.) for a period of four weeks 3 X 1 tablet per day. The administration of Bezalip led to a significant drop of cholesterol (-20%), triglycerides by 40% and LDL-cholesterol (-17%), while the HDL cholesterol level did not change significantly. During treatment a drop of the apolipoprotein B level by 17% occurred, the concentration of apolipoprotein A-I increased by 12%. The drug was well tolerated by the patients, there were no undesirable effects calling for discontinuation of treatment. The results are discussed along with those of other authors who had the opportunity to administer the drug for a prolonged period. The authors mention also briefly the results obtained during treatment of patients with hyperlipoproteinaemias, using other hypolipidaemic drugs.
