Epidemiological studies have identified that high levels of low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) and low levels of high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) are two independent causes of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Statins, niacin and fibrate are used for the treatment of CVD. However, some defects are shown in the treatment process. Thus, there is a demand for better treatment strategies that confer preferable efficacy with fewer side effects. Cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) promotes the movement of CEs from HDL to LDL and VLDL in exchange for triglycerides (TGs)...

Today, over 20 million people suffer from Alzheimer's disease (AD) worldwide. AD has become a critical issue to human health, especially in aging societies, and therefore it is a research hotspot in the global scientific community. The technology flow method differs from traditional reviews generating an informative overview of the research and development (R&D) landscape in a specific technological area. We need such an updated method to get a general overview of the R&D of anti-AD drugs in light of the dramatic developments in this area in recent years...

To deal with the rapid emergence of drug resistance challenges, together with the difficulty to eradicate the virus, off-target effects and significant cumulative drug toxicities, it is still imperative to develop next-generation anti-HIV agents with novel chemical classes or new mechanisms of action. Areas covered: We primarily focused on current strategies to discover novel anti-HIV agents. Moreover, examples of anti-HIV lead compounds were mainly selected from recently patented publications (reported between 2014 and 2017)...

Numerous research groups have developed GlyT-1 inhibitors in the pursuit of providing a novel antipsychotic treatment for schizophrenia. Despite multiple compounds advancing into clinical trials, a GlyT-1 inhibitor has yet to emerge to treat patients. However, the approach remains heavily investigated as it presents potential therapeutic utility for several other CNS and non-CNS-related indications. Areas covered: This review discusses various GlyT-1 inhibitor chemotypes identified and provides an overview of patent applications filed and published during the period of 2011-2016...

Monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors, after the initial 'golden age', are currently used as third-line antidepressants (selective MAO-A inhibitors) or clinically enrolled as co-adjuvants for neurodegenerative diseases (selective MAO-B inhibitors). However, the research within this field is always increasing due to their pivotal role in modulating synaptic functions and monoamines metabolism. Areas covered: In this paper, MAO inhibitors (2015-2017) are disclosed ordering all the patents according to their chemical scaffold...

Since years, ligands blocking histamine H3 receptor (H3R) activity (antagonists/inverse agonists) are interesting targets in the search for new cures for CNS disorders. Intensive works done by academic and pharmaceutical company researchers have led to many potent and selective H3R antagonists/inverse agonists. Some of them have reached to clinical trials. Areas covered: Patent applications from January 2013 to September 2017 and the most important topics connected with H3R field are analysed. Espacenet, Patentscope, Pubmed, GoogleScholar or Cochrane Library online databases were principially used to collect all the materials...

Introduction The critics of the Innovator pharmaceutical industry allege that secondary patents are trivial modifications over the primary patent, which extend its term and delay the entry of the generics in the market place. The protagonists regard secondary patents a result of continuous research and development (R&D), which help them introduce and protect new, differentiated products. Areas covered The areas covered are Product life cycle management (PLCM), Drug approval process, Orange book (OB) listed patents, US patent data...

Focal adhesion kinase (FAK) is a non-receptor tyrosine kinase that localizes at sites of cell adhesion to the extracellular matrix (ECM) and mediates signalling events downstream of integrin engagement of the ECM. FAK is known to regulate cell survival, proliferation and migration. Areas covered: FAK expression has also been shown to be up-regulated in many cancer types. Previous study also indicates that FAK-mediated signaling and functions are intrinsically involved in the progression of tumor aggressiveness, suggesting that FAK is a promising target for anticancer therapies...

Human breath can contain thousands of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and semi-volatile compounds that are related to metabolism and other biochemical processes. The presence of cancer cells can affect the identity and abundances of chemicals in breath when compared to those in healthy control subjects, which can be used to indicate the likelihood of a patient having cancer. Recently, the chemical analysis of exhaled breath from patients has been shown to be promising for diagnosing many different types of cancers, including lung, breast, colon, head, neck, and prostate, along with pre-cancerous conditions (dysplasia)...

Pancreatic cancer (PC) is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related death in the US with a 5-year survival rate of about 5%. Most patients have advanced metastatic disease mainly due to the lack of an effective early detection, and an extremely poor prognosis. Advancing in the fight against PC requires developing novel observable biomarkers at preclinical stages for early detection. Areas covered: This manuscript is an overview of different PC diagnostic modalities and the latest innovations made to enhance early PC detection through the patents published from 2011 to 2017...
