PURPOSE: Our aim was to develop and validate the extrapolative performance of a regression model using a limited sampling strategy for accurate estimation of the area under the plasma concentration versus time curve for saroglitazar. METHODS: Healthy subject pharmacokinetic data from a well-powered food-effect study (fasted vs fed treatments; n = 50) was used in this work. The first 25 subjects' serial plasma concentration data up to 72 hours and corresponding AUC0-t (ie, 72 hours) from the fasting group comprised a training dataset to develop the limited sampling model...

Prevailing knowledge links chronic low-grade inflammation in the adipose tissue to obesity and its associated metabolic complications. In this study, we evaluated immunometabolic effects of a recently launched dual peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) α & γ agonist 'Saroglitazar' in a mouse model of diet-induced obesity (DIO). Body composition analysis revealed that saroglitazar treatment promoted hepatic weight gain, while attenuated epididymal white adipose tissue (eWAT) mass in DIO. In the eWAT of saroglitazar treated mice, histological analysis showed reduced adipocyte hypertrophy and matrix deposition (picrosirius red staining)...

1. Saroglitazar, a novel peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) agonist, regulates lipid and glucose metabolism. The objective of this report is to provide a preclinical evaluation (in vitro/in vivo) of ADME properties of saroglitazar. In vitro studies included determination of permeability, metabolic stability, plasma protein binding, CYP reaction phenotyping and CYP inhibitory liability. In vivo studies included oral bioavailability and pharmacokinetic assessment in mouse, rat and dog. The excretion of saroglitazar was determined in rats...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) are common clinico-pathological conditions that affect millions of patients worldwide. In this study, the efficacy of saroglitazar, a novel PPARα/γ agonist, was assessed in models of NAFLD/NASH. METHODS & RESULTS: HepG2 cells treated with palmitic acid (PA;0.75 mM) showed decreased expression of various antioxidant biomarkers (SOD1, SOD2, glutathione peroxidase and catalase) and increased expression of inflammatory markers (TNFα, IL1β and IL6)...

The thiazolidinedione class PPARγ agonists as antidiabetic agents are restricted in clinical use because of the side effects such as edema, weight gain, and heart failure. The single and selective agonism of PPARγ is the main cause of side effects. The multi-target cooperative PPARα/γ dual agonist development is a hot topic in the antidiabetic medicinal chemistry field. Saroglitazar is the first approved PPARα/γ dual agonist, available in India for the treatment of diabetic dyslipidemia. It got rid of these side effects...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) have recently become a focus of interest for their important roles in glucose and lipid metabolism. In humans, PPARα activation causes a decrease in plasma triglyceride (TG) levels, enhancement of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) and simultaneous enhancement of very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) lipolysis, whereas PPARγ agonists act as insulin sensitizers and improve insulin resistance, which is very useful in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM)...

Peroxisome proliferators-activated receptors (PPARα, γ and δ) are potentially effective targets for Type 2 diabetes mellitus therapy. The severe effects of known glitazones and the successfully approved agents (saroglitazar and lobeglitazone) motivated us to study novelly potent PPARs drugs with improved safety profile. In this work, we received 15 carboxylic acids based on the combination principle to integrate the polar head of bezafibrate with the hydrophobic tail of pioglitazone. Another 12 tetrazoles based on the bioisosterism principle were obtained accordingly...

Insulin resistance (IR) is an important determinant of type-2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Free fatty acids (FFAs) induce IR by various mechanisms. A surfeit of circulating FFA leads to intra-myocellular lipid accumulation that induces mitochondrial ROS generation and worsens IR. However, the molecular mechanisms behind are unclear. We identified thioredoxin interacting protein (TxNIP), which is overexpressed in T2DM, to be a promoter of ROS-induced IR. We observed upregulation of TxNIP upon palmitate treatment in skeletal muscle cells that led to ROS generation and Glut-4 downregulation resulting in impaired glucose-uptake...

Given the high prevalence and rising incidence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), the absence of approved therapies is striking. Although the mainstay of treatment of NAFLD is weight loss, it is hard to maintain, prompting the need for pharmacotherapy as well. A greater understanding of disease pathogenesis in recent years was followed by development of new classes of medications, as well as potential repurposing of currently available agents. NAFLD therapies target four main pathways. The dominant approach is targeting hepatic fat accumulation and the resultant metabolic stress...

A sensitive LC-MS/MS method was developed and validated for quantitation of saroglitazar using turboion spray interface with positive ion mode. A liquid-liquid extraction, with a mixture of dichloromethane and diethyl ether, was employed for the extraction of saroglitazar and glimepiride (IS) from human plasma. The chromatographic separation was achieved using an ACE-5, C18 (4.6 × 100 mm) column with a gradient mobile phase comprising acetonitrile and ammonium acetate buffer with trifluoracetic acid in purified water...

Saroglitazar is a novel nonthiazolidinediones (TZD) and nonfibric acid derivative designed to act as dual regulator of lipids and glucose metabolism by activating peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPAR). These studies evaluate the efficacy and safety profile of Saroglitazar in preclinical in vitro and in vivo models. The EC50 values of Saroglitazar assessed in HepG2 cells using PPAR transactivation assay for hPPARα and hPPARγ were 0.65 pmol/L and 3 nmol/L, respectively. In db/db mice, 12-day treatment with Saroglitazar (0...

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is one of the most dreaded metabolic disorders in the world today. It is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality, and plays a cardinal role in quality of life and health economics. DM is associated with a high prevalence of microvascular and macrovascular complications. DM is a very important cardiovascular (CV) risk factor. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) has been implicated as the prime cause of mortality and morbidity in patients with DM. Hence, treatment of DM goes beyond glycemic control, and demands a multidisciplinary approach that comprehensively targets risk factors inherent in CV events...

INTRODUCTION: Diabetes and dyslipidemia are commonly associated modifiable risk factors for cardiovascular diseases. Majority of patients with diabetes also suffer from dyslipidemia (diabetic dyslipidemia). Diabetic dyslipidemia is more atherogenic as it is commonly associated with high triglyceride (TG) levels, high proportion of small dense low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) level (atherogenic dyslipidemia). Currently used pharmacotherapies for the management of diabetes and dyslipidemia like thiazolidinediones (PPAR-γ agonist; for insulin resistance) and fibrates (PPAR-α agonist; for hypertriglyceridemia) have many limitations and side effects...

Cardiovascular risk reduction is an important issue in the management of patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Peroxisome proliferator activated receptor (PPAR) agonists favourably influence glycaemic and lipid parameters in patients with Type 2 diabetes and a dual PPAR agonist is expected to have favourable effect on both parameters. In this study we have analyzed the effect of Saroglitazar, a novel dual PPAR alpha &gamma agonist, on glycaemic and lipid parameters in Indian patients with Type 2 diabetes...

A triad of high triglycerides, low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, and elevated small dense low-density lipoprotein particles occurring in a patient with type 2 diabetes is referred to atherogenic diabetic dyslipidemia (ADD). Despite statin therapy, a significant residual risk remains potentially attributable to increased triglyceride concentration and low HDL cholesterol, a characteristic hallmark of ADD. Current therapeutic options in reducing this residual risk include nicotinic acid, omega 3 fatty acids, and selective peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-alpha (PPAR) agonists (fibrates)...
