Description: Gemfibrozil is a peroxisome proliferator receptor alpha agonist. The mechanism of action of gemfibrozil is as a Peroxisome Proliferator-activated Receptor alpha Agonist. The chemical classification of gemfibrozil is PPAR alpha. Gemfibrozil is a lipid-regulating agent that lowers elevated serum lipids primarily by decreasing serum triglycerides with a variable reduction in total cholesterol.
