Resource Summary

Clinical Question:
Do fibrates reduce cardiovascular (CV) events?

Bottom-line:
When used alone^ fibrates reduce non-fatal coronary events^ but have no effect on mortality or other CV events^ including stroke. Current evidence suggests fibrates provide no advantage when added to statin therapy.
