Estimating Drug Efficacy with a Diet-Induced NASH Model in Chimeric Mice with Humanized Livers

85 views | Mar 05 2022

Keishi Kisoh et al. showed that CDAHFD feeding induced similar histological changes to human NASH patients, including ballooning, inflammation, apoptosis, regeneration of human hepatocytes, and pericellular and perisinusoidal fibrosis. [Read the Full Post]

Beneficial effects of elafibranor on NASH in E3L.CETP mice and differences between mice and men

322 views | Mar 17 2021

Anita M van den Hoek et al. concluded that elafibranor might be particularly useful to reduce hepatic inflammation and could be a pharmacologically useful agent for human NASH, but probably in combination with other agents. [Read the Full Post]

In vivo activation of invariant natural killer T cells induces systemic and local alterations in T-cell subsets prior to preterm birth

545 views | Feb 11 2019

Gomez-Lopez N et al. found that iNKT-cell activation altered the systemic and local T-cell subsets prior to preterm labour/birth; however, treatment with rosiglitazone partially reversed such effects. [Read the Full Post]

PPARβ/δ, a Novel Regulator for Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells Phenotypic Modulation and Vascular Remodeling after Subarachnoid Hemorrhage in Rats

1369 views | Dec 27 2018

Zhang H et al. identified PPARβ/δ as a useful regulator for VSMC phenotypic switch and vascular remodeling following SAH, providing novel insights into the therapeutic strategies of delayed cerebral ischemia. [Read the Full Post]

FAM83A is amplified and promotes cancer stem cell-like traits and chemoresistance in pancreatic cancer

1013 views | Dec 15 2018

Chen S et al. indicated that FAM83A has a vital oncogenic role to promote pancreatic cancer progression and may represent a potential clinical target. [Read the Full Post]

PPARβ/δ activation protects against corticosterone-induced ER stress in astrocytes by inhibiting the CpG hypermethylation of microRNA-181a

1322 views | Dec 10 2018

Ji J et al. suggested that PPARβ/δ activation in astrocytes might be a promising target for regulating ER stress-induced astrocytic injury. [Read the Full Post]

Short-term high-fat feeding induces islet macrophage infiltration and β-cell replication independently of insulin resistance in mice

671 views | Sep 21 2018

Woodland DC et al. suggested the existence of MΦ-mediated mechanisms in β-cell replication that are independent of insulin resistance. [Read the Full Post]

SIRT1 prevents hyperuricemia via the PGC-1α/PPARγ-ABCG2 pathway

0 views | Sep 20 2018

Wang J et al. demonstrated that SIRT1 and its activator, RSV, have clear anti-hyperuricemia functions in this mouse model. [Read the Full Post]

N-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids increase hepatic fibroblast growth factor 21 sensitivity via a PPAR-γ-β-klotho pathway

2447 views | Jun 11 2018

Yang W et al. indicated n-3 PUFAs increase hepatic FGF21 sensitivity and β-klotho expression probably through a PPAR-γ-dependent mechanism, and may thereby exert hepatic beneficial effects on lipid metabolism. [Read the Full Post]
