Regarding the effectiveness of Parmodia tablets 0.1 mg from Japan
Parmodia tablets (pemafibrate) were approved in Japan in 2017 as an effective medicine against atherogenic dyslipidaemia and hyperlipidemia. It works as peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha agonist. In other words, pemafibrate has an ability to bind to nuclear receptors. Thus, it regulates expression of targeted gene.
Despite being relatively new medicine, Parmodia tablets have already been studied by different researches and sufficient clinical trials were conducted (Hidenori Arai, Shizuya Yamashita et al. “Efficacy and Safety of Pemafibrate Versus Fenofibrate in Patients with High Triglyceride and Low HDL Cholesterol Levels: A Multicenter, Placebo-Controlled, Double-Blind, Randomized Trial”. Journal of Atherosclerosis and Thrombosis, 2018 Jun 1; 25(6): 521–538; Shun Ishibashi, Koutaro Yokote et al. “Efficacy and safety of pemafibrate (K-877), a selective peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor α modulator, in patients with dyslipidemia: Results from a 24-week, randomized, double blind, active-controlled, phase 3 trial”. Journal of Clinical Lipidology, Vol. 12, Issue 1, Jan–Feb 2018, 173-184). Researches prove that pemafibrate effectively reduces “bad” cholesterol, changing it to “good” one, decreases triglyceride and apolipoprotein level in the blood (Jean-Charles Fruchart. “Pemafibrate (K-877), a novel selective peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha modulator for management of atherogenic dyslipidaemia”.
