    Clinical, Journal:  CD44 cells determine fenofibrate-induced microevolution of drug-resistance in prostate cancer cell populations. (Pubmed Central) -  Sep 30, 2020   
    However, they also revealed the resistance of CD44 prostate cancer stem cells to the combined docetaxel/fenofibrate treatment, accompanied by docetaxel/fenofibrate-induced microevolution of hyper-resistant CD44 progenies. Thus, the balance between the sensitivity of CD44 prostate cancer cells to chemotherapeutics and the adaptation of CD44 stem-like cells to metabolic stress determines the response of prostate tumors to metabolic chemotherapy.

    [VIRTUAL] Circulatory markers of diabetic retinopathy caused by Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (Abstract Channel) -  Sep 28, 2020 - Abstract #EURETINA2020EURETINA_847;    
    Identifying circulatory biomarkers of PDR contributes to greater understanding of mediators of DR and could lead to the development of additional therapeutics.Our study has shown that several biochemical markers especially those looking at dyslipidemia, renal function, ESR and liver function are worth monitoring in T2DM patients and could point towards a diagnosis of retinopathy. Further prospective studies looking at changes in these biochemical markers and the development and progression of retinopathy would be needed to understand the history of disease and further elucidate the use of circulatory biomarkers as predictive markers for sight-threatening disease.

    Journal:  Design, synthesis and evaluation of 5-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-3H-1,2-dithiole-3-thione-Based fibrates as potential hypolipidemic and hepatoprotective agents. (Pubmed Central) -  Sep 26, 2020   
    All the synthesized compounds were preliminarily screened by using the Triton WR-1339-induecd hyperlipidemia model, in which T1 exhibited more potent hypolipidemic property than positive drug fenofibrate (FF)...In the livers of T1-administrated rat, the levels of PPARα related to lipids metabolism were up-regulated. Additional effects such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and HS releasing action confirmed and reinforced the activity of T1 as a potential multifunctional hypolipidemic and hepatoprotective agent.

    Preclinical, Journal:  Large triglyceride-rich lipoproteins in hypertriglyceridemia are associated with the severity of acute pancreatitis in experimental mice. (Pubmed Central) -  Sep 25, 2020   
    Gpihbp1-/- mice with triglyceride levels below 2000 mg/dL had milder pancreatic injury and less incidence of pancreatic necrosis than those with triglyceride levels above 2000 mg/dL, similar to Gpihbp1-/-mice with triglyceride levels above 2000 mg/dL but with fenofibrate administration. These findings demonstrated that hypertriglyceridemia subtypes with large TRL particles could affect acute pancreatitis progression and that chylomicrons showed more cytotoxicity than VLDL by releasing more FFAs.

    Review, Journal:  Conjugation to Branched Glycerol Oligomers, a Novel Strategy for Extremely Hydrophobic Agents (Pubmed Central) -  Sep 23, 2020   
    Water-solubility of fenofibrate, one of the most hydrophobic medicines in clinical use, was facilitated by a factor of more than 2000, and its lipid-lowering effect in vivo improved more than ten-fold, by simply conjugating with branched glycerol trimer, for instance. Here we will briefly introduce the basic concepts and our successful experiences of applying branched glycerol oligomers including antitumor agents in terms of water-solubility, pharmacological effects, and pharmacokinetics, and merits and current issues will be discussed in this review.

    Journal:  Trends over time in COPD treatment choices by respiratory physicians: An analysis from the COLIBRI-COPD French cohort. (Pubmed Central) -  Aug 27, 2020   
    A causal relationship between lipotoxicity and lymphatic proliferation with a cellular link to macrophage activation can be speculated; pro-inflammatory M1 type macrophage is involved in the development of lymphangiogenesis through stimulation of VEGF-C and by its transdifferentiation into lymphatic endothelial cells. Changes over time in therapeutic profiles suggest that new evidence from scientific publications and recommendations may have had a rapid impact on clinical practice.

    Journal:  Partial impairment of insulin receptor expression mimics fasting to prevent diet-induced fatty liver disease. (Pubmed Central) -  Jul 30, 2020   
    Consistently, and unlike in control mice, the PPARα activator fenofibrate fails to further affect hepatic lipid accumulation in PerIRKO mice. Taken together, and opposing previously established diabetogenic features of insulin resistance, incomplete impairment of insulin signaling may mimic central aspects of calorie restriction to limit hepatic lipid accumulation during conditions of metabolic stress.

    Clinical, Journal:  A potential role of triple therapy for asthma patients. (Pubmed Central) -  Jul 29, 2020   
    We believe that it is appropriate to treat with triple therapy asthmatic patients who have smoked and remain symptomatic or suffer from frequent exacerbations despite initial inhaler therapy with ICS/LABA. However, we must establish when to step up or mainly step down triple therapy especially in patients who are well controlled, and what will be the cost of these combinations in the management of asthma.
