Hypolipidaemic fibrates are a class of drugs developed for the treatment of lipid disorders in man. Toxicology studies have linked them with peroxisome proliferation and, in turn, liver cancer in rodents.

The text constitutes a comprehensive database on the long-term, acute and chronic toxicity of these compounds, documenting the decision-making processes used to determine how important findings should be investigated and when development should be terminated.
