Agomelatine reduces circulating triacylglycerides and hepatic steatosis in fructose-treated rats.

Biomed Pharmacother 2021 Jun 11;141:111807. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Department of Pharmacology, Faculty of Medical Sciences, State University of Campinas, 105 Alexander Flemming St., Zip Code: 13083-881, Campinas, SP, Brazil. Electronic address:

Agomelatine (AGO) is an antidepressant drug with agonistic activity at melatonin receptor 1 (MT1) and MT2 and with neutral antagonistic activity at serotonin receptor 5-HT2. Although experimental studies show that melatonin reduces hypertriglyceridemia and hepatic steatosis induced by excessive fructose intake, no studies have tested if AGO exerts similar actions. To address this issue we have treated male Wistar rats with fructose (15% in the drinking water) and/or AGO (40 mg/kg/day) for two weeks. Read More

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 Jun;100(22):e26121

Department of Family Medicine, Far Eastern Memorial Hospital, New Taipei City, Taiwan.

Abstract: This community-based study aimed to elucidate whether there is a gender difference in the effect of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and its individual components on an elevated risk for incident colorectal adenoma.A prospective cohort study was conducted by enrolling 59,767 subjects aged 40 years or older between 2001 and 2009 in Keelung, Taiwan, to test this hypothesis, excluding those with a prior history of colorectal cancer and those with colorectal cancer diagnosed at the first screening.

Metabolic complications in myotonic dystrophy type 1: A cross-sectional survey using the National Registry of Japan.

J Neurol Sci 2021 May 27;427:117511. Epub 2021 May 27.

Department of Neurology, National Hospital Organization Aomori National Hospital, Namioka, Aomori 038-1331, Japan. Electronic address:

Myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) is the most common form of muscular dystrophy in adults, affecting multiple organs, including the eyes, heart, endocrine system, and central nervous system. The broad spectrum of DM1 symptoms has been attributed to the aberrant pre-mRNA splicing of various genes due to an abnormal expansion of the CTG repeat in the 3' untranslated region of the DMPK gene. The current challenge in the clinical care of DM1 is the lack of well-established protocols for the management of each organ disorder or symptom. Read More

Triglyceride-Rich Lipoproteins and Their Remnants as Silent Promoters of Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease and Other Metabolic Disorders: A Review.

Nutrients 2021 May 22;13(6). Epub 2021 May 22.

Internal Medicine Department, "Grigore T. Popa" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, 700115 Iași, Romania.

While targeting elevated serum levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol has been the mainstay of atherosclerosis prevention and treatment for decades, the evidence regarding the atherogenic role of hypertriglyceridemia is still controversial. Various epidemiological population-based studies on statin-treated subjects nominated triglycerides, triglyceride-rich lipoproteins (namely, chylomicrons and very-low-density lipoprotein particles), and their remnants as major determinants of the substantial residual cardiovascular risk. With the triglyceride-glucose index and triglyceride to high-density lipoprotein ratio emerging as surrogate indicators of peripheral artery disease and atherosclerotic cerebrovascular disease, one can conclude that further research addressing the intricate relationship between triglycerides and atherosclerosis is warranted.

Development of Metabolic Syndrome Decreases Bone Mineral Density T-Score of Calcaneus in Foot in a Large Taiwanese Population Follow-Up Study.

J Pers Med 2021 May 20;11(5). Epub 2021 May 20.

Faculty of Medicine, College of Medicine, Kaohsiung Medical University, Kaohsiung 807, Taiwan.

Studies have suggested that there may be common pathogenic pathways linking osteoporosis and metabolic syndrome (MetS) due to the multiple risk factors for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease caused by MetS. However, results on the association between MetS and bone health are inconsistent and sometimes contradictory. In this study, we aimed to investigate the associations between the effects of MetS risk factors and bone mineral density (BMD) T-score in a longitudinal study of 27,033 participants from the Taiwan Biobank with a follow-up period of 4 years.
