Zydus receives final approvals from USFDA for skin ointment, heart medicine
The group also received a final nod for Amlodipine and Atorvastatin Tablets USP that is administered for heart and cholesterol-related cases.
As yet there's no magic bullet that offers protection against coronavirus. And even though vitamin C supplements are selling in huge quantities, hard evidence on its effectiveness is lacking.
ABSTRACTSeveral epidemiological studies have reported a relationship between statin treatment and increased bone mineral density (BMD) and reduced fracture risk, but the mechanism underlying the purported relationship is unclear. We used Mendelian randomization (MR) to assess whether this relationship is explained by a specific effect in response to statin use or by a general effect of lipid lowering. We utilized 400 single ‐nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) robustly associated with plasma lipid levels as exposure. The outcome results were obtained from a heel estimated BMD (eBMD) genomewide association study (GWAS) from t...
To explore the effects of statin therapy with the abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) growth rate and mortality.
Lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)) is a low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particle containing apolipoprotein(a) (apo(a)) covalently linked to apolipoprotein B-100 (apoB). Statin-treated patients with elevated Lp(a) have an increased risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). Recent trials show that proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) inhibition decreases Lp(a) and cardiovascular events, particularly in high risk patients with elevated Lp(a). We investigated the kinetic mechanism whereby alirocumab, a PCSK9 inhibitor, lowers Lp(a) in statin-treated patients with high Lp(a) and ASCVD.
This study aimed to examine whether sappanwood ethyl acetate extract (SEAE) alleviates experimental atherosclerosis in rats through FGF21/SREBP-2 signaling. Rats were randomized to six groups (n=10/group): blank control, model, simvastatin (positive control, 4.2 mg/kg/d), and SEAE high-, medium-, and low-dose (2.30, 1.15, and 0.575 g/kg/d, respectively). The high-fat- and vitamin D3-induced rodent model of atherosclerosis was created (except in the blank control group). Aorta and liver underwent histopathologic examination. SREPB-2 and FGF21 expression levels were examined by real-time RT-PCR and western blot. Compared wit...

Hwang Statins such as simvastatin have many side effects, including muscle damage, which is known to be the most frequent undesirable side effect. Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA), a kind of biolipid, has diverse cellular activities, including cell proliferation, survival, and migration. However, whether LPA affects statin-linked muscle damage has not been reported yet. In the present study, to determine whether LPA might exert potential protective effect on statin-induced myocyotoxicity, the effect of LPA on cytotoxicity in rat L6 myoblasts exposed to simvastatin was explored. Viability and apoptosis of rat L6 myoblasts we...
In conclusion, berberine-induced nuclear translocation of FXR and LXRα could activate OATP1B1 promoter, resulting in enhanced expression of OATP1B1 and increased uptake of rosuvastatin.
