Abstract Combination fibrate-statin therapy favorably modifies the atherogenic, triglyceride-rich lipoprotein environment, common to insulin resistance, diabetes, and higher cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. Five major fibrate randomized clinical trial (RCT) results (HHS, VA-HIT, BIP, FIELD, and ACCORD-Lipid) demonstrated four consistent features: 1) the highest CVD event rates occurred in the placebo subgroups possessing atherogenic "moderate" dyslipidemia (triglycerides, > 200 mg/dL, and low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol [HDL-C], < 35-40 mg/dL); 2) with this subgroup having the greatest "hypothesis-generating" fibrate benefit (27\% to 65\% relative risk reduction, variable significance [P values ranging 0.057-0.005]); 3) those subgroups without moderate dyslipidemia had relatively lower CVD event rates; and 4) little or no benefit from fibrates. The ACCORD-Lipid results, specifically, demonstrated benefits against the background of statin therapy. Three independent meta-analyses combining the five RCTs, which provided a large sample of moderate dyslipidemia participants (i.e., 2401 on fibrates; 2270 on placebo), demonstrated a fibrate benefit with significant heterogeneity of effect across lipid subgroups (P = 0.0002). The fibrate benefit was observed in "low HDL-C only" patients, reducing CVD events by 17\% (P < 0.001) or "hypertriglyceridemia-only" patients, reducing CVD events by 28\% (P < 0.001), or "atherogenic (moderate) dyslipidemia" phenotype, reducing CVD events by 30\% (P < 0.0001), compared with a nonsignificant 6\% reduction (P = 0.13) in nonatherogenic dyslipidemia patients. Fibrate RCTs in patients with diabetes (FIELD and ACCORD-Lipid) also demonstrated significant microvascular (ie, retinopathy and nephropathy) outcome benefit possibly independent of lipid levels.
