Safety and efficacy of therapies for chylomicronemia.

Expert Rev Clin Pharmacol 2022 Jun 28. Epub 2022 Jun 28.

Department of Medicine, Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, Western University, 1151 Richmond Street North, London, Ontario N6A 5B7, Canada.

Introduction: Primary chylomicronemia is characterized by pathological accumulation of chylomicrons in plasma causing severe hypertriglyceridemia, typically >10 mmol/L (>875 mg/dL). Patients with the ultra-rare familial chylomicronemia syndrome (FCS) subtype completely lack lipolytic capacity and respond minimally to traditional triglyceride-lowering therapies. The mainstay of treatment is a low-fat diet, which is difficult to follow and compromises quality of life. Read More

A compound directed against S6K1 hampers fat mass expansion and mitigates diet-induced hepatosteatosis.

JCI Insight 2022 Jun 23. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Department of Diabetes, Endocrinology, and Nutrition (UDEN), Girona Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBGI), Girona, Spain.

The ribosomal protein S6 kinase 1 (S6K1) is a relevant effector downstream the mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1), best known for its role in the control of lipid homeostasis. Consistent with this, mice lacking the S6k1 gene have a defect in their ability to induce the commitment of fat precursor cells to the adipogenic lineage, which contributes to a significant reduction of fat mass. Here, we assess the therapeutic blockage of S6K1 in diet-induced obese mice challenged with LY2584702 tosylate, a specific oral S6K1 inhibitor initially developed for the treatment of solid tumours.

Serum Ferritin in Metabolic Syndrome-Mechanisms and Clinical Applications.

Pathophysiology 2022 Jun 17;29(2):319-325. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Department of Medicine, School of Medical Science and Research, Sharda University, Uttar Pradesh 201306, India.

Metabolic syndrome (MS) is a cluster of conditions including central obesity, hypertriglyceridemia, low HDL cholesterol, hyperglycaemia, and hypertension with a prevalence rate of 20-25% of the world's adult population. Metabolic syndrome is often characterized by insulin resistance, which some have suggested is a major supportive connection between physical inactivity and MS. Various studies suggest that moderately elevated iron and ferritin levels are associated with an increased prevalence of metabolic syndrome and are markers of insulin resistance. Read More

Combinations of an acetyl CoA carboxylase inhibitor with hepatic lipid modulating agents do not augment antifibrotic efficacy in preclinical models of NASH and fibrosis.

Hepatol Commun 2022 Jun 23. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Gilead Sciences, Foster City, California, USA.

Dysregulated hepatocyte lipid metabolism is a hallmark of hepatic lipotoxicity and contributes to the pathogenesis of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Acetyl CoA carboxylase (ACC) inhibitors decrease hepatocyte lipotoxicity by inhibiting de novo lipogenesis and concomitantly increasing fatty acid oxidation (FAO), and firsocostat, a liver-targeted inhibitor of ACC1/2, is under evaluation clinically in patients with NASH. ACC inhibition is associated with improvements in indices of NASH and reduced liver triglyceride (TG) content, but also increased circulating TG in subjects with NASH and preclinical rodent models.

J Crit Care 2022 Jun 17;71:154098. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

New York University Langone Hospital - Long Island, NY, USA.

Purpose: PRIS is a potentially fatal syndrome characterized by various clinical symptoms and abnormalities.

A More Atherogenic Lipoprotein Status Is Present in Adults With Than Without Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus With Equivalent Degrees of Hypertriglyceridemia.

Can J Diabetes 2022 Feb 9. Epub 2022 Feb 9.

Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Department of Medicine, University of Ottawa, Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Electronic address:

Objectives: The impact of type 2 diabetes (T2DM) on biomarkers denoting lipoprotein compositional status was studied in mild and moderate hypertriglyceridemia (HTG). Diabetic dyslipidemia pathophysiology could contribute to differences in lipoprotein compositional status, which could be reflected in the preferred cardiovascular disease risk prediction markers in HTG: non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDLC) and apolipoprotein B (apoB).

Methods: 2,775 fasting lipid profiles from a tertiary-care lipid clinic were analyzed as 2 subgroups (with and without T2DM), stratified by triglyceride (TG) levels: normotriglyceridemia (TG 0. Read More

Circulating microparticles as indicators of cardiometabolic risk in PCOS.

Clin Chim Acta 2022 Jun 17;533:63-70. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Department of Reproductive Biology, Faculty of Advanced Medical Sciences, Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, Tabriz, Iran. Electronic address:

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), the most prevalent endocrine disturbance of the female reproductive system, is associated with several pathologic conditions, such as metabolic syndrome, obesity, diabetes, dyslipidemia, and insulin resistance, all of which are tightly connected to its progression. These factors are associated with a type of extracellular vesicle, ie, microparticles (MPs), released by shedding due to cell activation and apoptosis. Circulating MPs (cMPs) are secreted by a variety of cells, such as platelets, endothelial, leukocytes, and erythrocytes, and contain cytoplasmic substances derived from parent cells that account for their biologic activity.

Acute coronary syndrome after liver transplantation in a young primary biliary cholangitis recipient with dyslipidemia: a case report.

Surg Case Rep 2022 Jun 17;8(1):113. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Department of Surgery, Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan.

Background: Primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) is a chronic, progressive liver disease associated with dyslipidemia. There is a consensus that PBC does not accelerate coronary artery disease despite high cholesterol levels, so the screening test for the coronary artery is not routinely performed before liver transplantation (LT). To date, no report has described the potential risk of PBC-related dyslipidemia for developing acute coronary syndrome (ACS) after LT. Read More
