have been observed more frequently in those studies conducted in subjects with moderate hyperlipidemia (4/5 positive outcomes) than in normal lipidemic healthy volunteers (1/5 positive outcome) or in noninsulin-dependent diabetics (1/3 positive outcome).

• The effect on triglyceridemia (average 19%) is larger than on cholester-olemia (average 8%).
