BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Fenofibrate, a PPARα agonist, is the most widely prescribed drug for the treatment of hyperlipidemia. Although fibrate drugs were reported to be beneficial for cholestasis, the underlying mechanism has not been determined. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH: Wild-type mice and Pparα-null mice were orally pretreated with fenofibrate for three days, following which ANIT was administered to induce cholestasis. The potent experimental PPARα agonist WY14643 was used to validate the role of PPARα, and the JNK inhibitor SP600125 was employed to explore the role of the JNK pathway in cholestatic liver injury...

PURPOSE: This is a case presentation of paracentral acute middle maculopathy in a 33-year-old white man with borderline hyperlipidemia. Paracentral acute middle maculopathy was originally thought to be a variant of acute macular neuroretinopathy; however, it is now generally accepted that these two conditions are separate disease entities. The etiology, evolution, and pathophysiology of acute macular neuroretinopathy and paracentral acute middle maculopathy are discussed, as well as current diagnostic techniques...

Inflammation is critical for the progression of hyperlipidemia. Although the exact mechanism through which inflammation affects hyperlipidemia is not very clear, evidence suggests that the tumor necrosis factor superfamily member 14 (TNFSF14/LIGHT)LIGHT might regulate lipid metabolism. In this study we investigated the expression of LIGHT in patients with different stages of coronary disease. The expression of lipid metabolism-related enzymes and inflammation-related proteins were further explored in oxidized low-density lipoproteins (oxLDL)-induced THP-1 macrophages...

BACKGROUND: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a disorder of glucose metabolism marked by hyperglycemia, glycosuria, hyperlipidemia, negative nitrogen balance and ketonaemia. DM is a major healthcare problems today and its treatment costs billions of dollars worldwide annually. The cases of diabetes have increased rapidly in recent years throughout the world. Currently, for management of type-1 diabetes mellitus (TIDM), multiple daily insulin (MDI) injections is the most popular treatment. Oral administration of insulin is the most suitable and attractive as compared to subcutaneous route but unfortunately cannot be utilized for the administration of peptides and proteins due to poor epithelial permeability and enzymatic degradation within the gastrointestinal tract...

OBJECTIVES: The liver X receptors (LXRs) and farnesoid X receptor (FXR) have been identified in human platelets. Ligands of these receptors have been shown to have nongenomic inhibitory effects on platelet activation by platelet agonists. This, however, seems contradictory with the platelet hyper-reactivity that is associated with several pathological conditions that are associated with increased circulating levels of molecules that are LXR and FXR ligands, such as hyperlipidemia, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and obesity...

HIV/AIDS patients have suppressed immune system, making them vulnerable to many opportunistic infections including tuberculosis (TB). The patients who are co-infected with TB undergo combined regimens with anti-retroviral drugs such as zidovudine (AZT) and anti-tubercular drug such as isoniazid (INH) for therapy leading to hepatotoxicty. Silibinin (SBN), extracted from Silybum marianum commonly called as "Milk thistle" is used against several drugs-induced hepatotoxicity. The present study evaluates the ameliorative effect of SBN against AZT alone, INH alone, and INH + AZT-induced toxic insults to liver of rats...
