Discovery of Tropifexor (LJN452), a Highly Potent Non-Bile Acid FXR Agonist for the Treatment of Cholestatic Liver Diseases and Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH).

The farnesoid X receptor (FXR) is a nuclear receptor that acts as a master regulator of bile acid metabolism and signaling. Activation of FXR inhibits bile acid synthesis and increases bile acid conjugation, transport, and excretion, thereby protecting the liver from the harmful effects of bile accumulation, leading to considerable interest in FXR as a therapeutic target for the treatment of cholestasis and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. We identified a novel series of highly potent non-bile acid FXR agonis...


Assessment of anti-piperacillin IgG binding to structurally-related drug protein adducts.

The risk of developing hypersensitivity to alternative antibiotics is a concern for penicillin hypersensitive patients and healthcare pro-viders. Herein we use piperacillin hypersensitivity as a model to explore the reactivity of drug-specific IgG against alternative β-lactam protein adducts. Mass spectrometry was used to show the drugs (amoxicillin, flucloxacillin, benzyl penicillin, aztreonam and pipera-cillin) bind to similar lysine residues on the protein carrier bovine serum albumin. However, the hapt...

The Effect of Prior Continuous Glucose Monitoring Use on Glycemic Outcomes in the Pivotal Trial of the MiniMed(™) 670G Hybrid Closed-Loop System.

A 3-month pivotal trial using the MiniMed™ 670G hybrid closed-loop (HCL) system in adolescent and adult patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D), relative to a 2-week baseline run-in period, resulted in increased sensor glucose (SG) values in target range (71-180 mg/dL), reduced HbA1c levels, and no events of diabetic ketoacidosis or severe hypoglycemia ( Clinicaltrials.gov : NCT02463097). This brief report evaluated how prior continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) experience influenced glycemic outcomes, in th...


Automatic Sex-Liking and Sex-Failure Associations in Men With Sexual Dysfunction.

Current models of sexual functioning imply an important role for both automatic and controlled appraisals. Accordingly, it can be hypothesized that erectile dysfunction may be due to the automatic activation of negative appraisals at the prospect of sexual intercourse. However, previous research showed that men with sexual dysfunction exhibited relatively strong automatic sex-positive instead of sex-negative associations. This study tested the robustness of this unexpected finding and, additionally, examine...

Resveratrol Induces Mitochondrial Apoptosis and Inhibits Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition in Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma Cells.

OSCC is the most common malignant cancer of the head and neck. EMT is an essential cellular process critical to the morphogenesis and homeostasis of solid tissues. It is also involved in the initial stage of cancer metastasis and invasion in which cells lose epithelial characteristics. While cancer therapy protocols such as surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy are effective and useful, the drug tolerance and toxicity of OSCC patients remain a problem. Resveratrol is mainly produced in red grape skin and exh...

Towards an overarching model for electronic medical-record systems, including problem-oriented, goal-oriented, and other approaches.

There is no consensus among health professionals on how to structure medical records to serve clinical decision-making. Three approaches co-exist (source-oriented, problem-oriented, goal-oriented), each suiting a different subset of patients. In primary care, the problem-oriented approach is dominant, but for patients with multiple conditions (multimorbidity) the goal-oriented approach seems more appropriate. There is a need to combine different approaches in one medical-record system. In this article, we e...

Sildenafil Citrate improves the delivery and anticancer activity of doxorubicin formulations in a mouse model of breast cancer.

Sildenafil is an approved drug for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. The drug exerts its action through the relaxation of smooth muscles and the modulation of vascular endothelial permeability. In this work, we tested whether the aforementioned effects of Sildenafil on tumor vasculatures could result in an improvement of anticancer drug concentration in tumor tissues, and hence improve its anticancer effect. Sildenafil when added to doxorubicin showed synergistic anticancer activity against 4T1 breast ...

Morphologic Criteria of Lesion Activity in Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration: A Consensus Article.

Intravitreal antivascular endothelial growth factor drugs represent the current standard of care for neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD). Individualized treatment regimens aim at obtaining the same visual benefits of monthly injections with a reduced number of injections and follow-up visits, and, consequently, of treatment burden. The target of these strategies is to timely recognize lesion recurrence, even before visual deterioration. Early detection of lesion activity is critical to ensur...

Metronomic therapy has low toxicity and is as effective as current standard treatment for recurrent high-risk neuroblastoma.

The metronomic therapy concept uses low doses of continuously applied chemotherapeutic, anti-angiogenetic, and immunomodulating drugs. Twenty patients with recurrent and 3 with refractory high-risk neuroblastoma were treated by the metronomic concept using celecoxib, cyclophosphamide, vinblastine, and etoposide for up to 24 months.

Enhancement of invadopodia activity in glioma cells by sublethal doses of irradiation and temozolomide.

OBJECTIVE Glioblastoma is the most common primary central nervous system tumor in adults. These tumors are highly invasive and infiltrative and result in tumor recurrence as well as an extremely poor patient prognosis. The current standard of care involves surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. However, previous studies have suggested that glioblastoma cells that survive treatment are potentially more invasive. The goal of this study was to investigate whether this increased phenotype in surviving cells i...

Patients with cranial dural arteriovenous fistulas may benefit from expanded hypercoagulability and cancer screening.

OBJECTIVE Cranial dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) have been associated with dural sinus occlusion, and previous reports have suggested the association of hypercoagulability with some cases. But the prevalence of a hypercoagulable state has not been systematically analyzed in conjunction with laboratory markers and clinical manifestations, including history of thromboembolism or systemic malignancy. The authors hypothesize that laboratory or clinical evidence of a hypercoagulable state, including cancer...
