tert-Butyl (3R,5S)-6-chloro-3,5-dihydroxyhexanoate ((3R,5S)-CDHH) is the key intermediate for synthesis of atorvastatin and rosuvastatin. Carbonyl reductase exhibits excellent activity toward tert-butyl (S)-6-chloro-5-hydroxy-3-oxohexanoate ((S)-CHOH) to synthesize (3R,5S)-CDHH. In this study, a whole cell biosynthesis reaction system to produce (3R,5S)-CDHH was constructed in organic solvents. A solution of 10% (v/v) Tween-80 was introduced to the reaction system as a co-solvent, which greatly enhanced biotransformation process, giving 98...

1. Organic anion-transporting polypeptide 1B1 (OATP1B1) plays an important role in the hepatic uptake of a broad range of substrate drugs. In vitro experiments show that molecular-targeted agents do not always have similar effects on OATP1B1 activity. 2. The purpose of this study was to clarify whether the effects of molecular-targeted agents on OATP1B1 are substrate-dependent. We used OATP1B1-transfected cells to compare the effects of molecular-targeted agents on OATP1B1-mediated uptake of fluorescein (FL), 2',7'-dichlorofluorescein (DCF), atorvastatin, SN-38, and valsartan...

BACKGROUND: There is an increased risk of developing T2DM in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and there is evidence that statins improve metabolic parameters in these patients. However, there is some data to show that statins increase the risk of incipient diabetes. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We have previously shown that 12-weeks of atorvastatin improves insulin resistance when measured using HOMA-IR. This post hoc-analysis was designed to look at the effect of atorvastatin on pancreatic β cell function using HOMA-β in the same study...

Defects in vascular integrity in cerebrovasculature lead to serious pathologies including hemorrhagic stroke. The stability of cell adhesion junctions and actin-myosin contractile machinery are two major determinants for the integrity of endothelial monolayer. Here we have evaluated the protective effects of tanshinone I (Tan I), a lipophilic compound presents in Salvia miltiorrhiza, against atorvastatin-induced cerebral hemorrhage in zebrafish in vivo, and further dissected the molecular mechanisms in HUVECs...

Many drugs can cause unexpected muscle disorders, often necessitating the cessation of an effective medication. Inhibition of monocarboxylate transporters (MCTs) may potentially lead to perturbation of l-lactic acid homeostasis and muscular toxicity. Previous studies have shown that statins and loratadine have the potential to inhibit l-lactic acid efflux by MCTs (MCT1 and 4). The main objective of this study was to confirm the inhibitory potentials of atorvastatin, simvastatin (acid and lactone forms), rosuvastatin, and loratadine on l-lactic acid transport using primary human skeletal muscle cells (SkMC)...

REVIEW
Leigh Anne Hylton Gravatt, Rachel W Flurie, Estela Lajthia, Dave L Dixon
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review discusses potential drug-drug interactions between statins and antimicrobials and provides clinician's guidance on how to manage these interactions. RECENT FINDINGS: In addition to statin utilization increasing in recent years, there is greater emphasis on using moderate to high-intensity statin doses. Statin-related adverse effects are often dose-dependent; therefore, patients may be at increased risk. Antimicrobial use has also increased in recent years, and various efforts have been implemented to ensure appropriate use of antimicrobials...

Severe hepatotoxicity is a rare but well-known adverse reaction to statins. However, despite the widespread use of statins, only a few cases describing statin reexposure or switch to another statin after liver injury have been published. The literature on hepatotoxicity with ezetimibe alone or in combination with statins is also scarce. We report a case where a patient with a history of elevated liver enzymes while using atorvastatin, but prior and subsequent good tolerance to simvastatin and pravastatin, developed drug-induced liver injury on reexposure to a combination of atorvastatin and ezetimibe...
