Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir

After reading the medical query raised by you I would like to tell you that Fenofibrate belongs to fibric acid derivatives class as not Statins. It's helps in the reduction of Triglycerides levels in case of hypertriglyceridemias.

It has no know significant interaction with stem cell treatment.

Although it should be used with caution in Kidney and Liver disease patients.

I hope this information will answer your query.

Kind Regards
