Non-statin Treatments for Managing LDL Cholesterol and Their Outcomes.
Cincinnati, United States. In Clin Ther, Jan 2016
Additional agents are being developed as orphan indications expressly for patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, including peroxisome proliferator activated receptor-δ agonists, angiopoietin-like protein 3 inhibitors, and gene therapy.
Novel therapeutics in hypertriglyceridemia.
London, Canada. In Curr Opin Lipidol, Dec 2015
Other potential therapies include small molecule inhibitors of microsomal triglyceride transfer protein (lomitapide) and diacylglycerol acyltransferase-1 (pradigastat), and a monoclonal antibody against angiopoietin-like protein 3 (REGN1500).
Influenza lung injury: mechanisms and therapeutic opportunities.
Ban Mae Chan, Thailand. In Am J Physiol Lung Cell Mol Physiol, Dec 2015
Damage to the alveolar-capillary barrier has been quantified in mice, and agents have been identified that can help to preserve barrier integrity, such as vasculotide, angiopoietin-like 4 neutralization, and sphingosine 1-phosphate mimics.
Update on the molecular biology of dyslipidemias.
Worcester, United Kingdom. In Clin Chim Acta, Dec 2015
Mutations in the genes APOB, and ANGPTL3 and ANGPTL4 (that encode angiopoietin-like proteins which inhibit lipoprotein lipase activity) can further cause low levels of apoB containing lipoproteins.
Analysis of circulating DNA and protein biomarkers to predict the clinical activity of regorafenib and assess prognosis in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer: a retrospective, exploratory analysis of the CORRECT trial.
Barcelona, Spain. In Lancet Oncol, Aug 2015
We also measured the concentration of 15 proteins of interest-angiopoietin 2, interleukin 6, interleukin 8, placental growth factor, soluble TIE-1, soluble VEGFR1, VEGF-A, VEGF-C, VEGF-D, VEGF-A isoform 121, bone morphogenetic protein 7, macrophage colony-stimulating factor, stromal cell-derived factor-1, tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase 2, and von Willebrand factor-in plasma samples from 611 patients.
