Ezetimibe is a potent, selective, cholesterol absorption inhibitor, used to lower cholesterol.
Caco-2 cells grown in transwell inserts were transfected with scrambled siRNA, or siRNA specific for CCK1R, CCK2R, or both CCK1 and CCK2R and then incubated with 0.002 uCi of [3H]cholesterol micelles in the apical compartment and with culture medium alone (Control) or 10 nm [Thr28,Nle31]CCK with or without 50 uM ezetimibe (EZ) in the basolateral compartment. Absorbed [3H]cholesterol was determined by radioactivity counting of the basolateral medium. Values represent the mean ± S.E. (error bars) of 4-5 independent experiments. *, p < 0.05 versus control; †, p < 0.05 versus cells treated with CCK alone; ‡, p < 0.05 versus cells transfected with scrambled siRNA alone; $, p < 0.05 versus cells treated with scrambled siRNA and CCK.
Anacetrapib (MK0859) is a potent, selective, reversible rhCETP and mutant CETP(C13S) inhibitor with IC50 of 7.9 nM and 11.8 nM, increases HDL-C and decreases LDL-C, does not increase aldosterone or blood pressure. Phase 3.
ETC-1002,also known as Bempedoic acid, is an orally available, once-daily LDL-C lowering small molecule designed to lower elevated levels of LDL-C and to avoid side effects associated with existing LDL-C lowering therapies.ETC-1002 is an activator of hepatic AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). It has potent inhibitory activity against hepatic ATP-citrate lyase(IC50=29 uM).
Probucol is an anti-hyperlipidemic drug by lowering the level of cholesterol in the bloodstream by increasing the rate of LDL catabolism.
