Answer

Lipid-Lowering Agents

Agents in this class reduce serum bilirubin levels. They have been used for their effects in lowering bilirubin levels in newborns.

Fenofibrate (TriCor, Triglide, Antara)

Fenofibrate lowers serum triglycerides and very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) levels. However, in addition to its hypolipidemic action, it also has the ability to induce bilirubin conjugation.
