Aspirin Improves Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease and Atherosclerosis through Regulation of the PPAR δ-AMPK-PGC-1α Pathway in Dyslipidemic Conditions.

In conclusion, aspirin can systemically and simultaneously ameliorate NAFLD and atherosclerosis by inhibiting lipid biosynthesis and inflammation and by elevating catabolic metabolism through the activation of the PPARδ-AMPK-PGC-1α pathway. Furthermore, aspirin may normalize atherosclerosis and NAFLD by modulating the mannose receptor and CCR2 in macrophages. PMID: 32258142 [PubMed - in process]

;mez-Huelgas María Rosa Bernal-López The aim of this study was to analyze the utility of liver function tests (LFT) and fatty liver index (FLI), a surrogate marker of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, in the categorization of metabolic phenotypes in a Mediterranean population. A cross-sectional study was performed on a random representative sample of 2233 adults assigned to a health center in Málaga, Spain. The metabolic phenotypes were determined based on body mass index (BMI) categorization and the presence or absence of two or more cardiometabolic abnormalities (high blood pressure, low h...

Authors: Xu S, Chen L, Hong D, Yang L, Li X, Wang X Abstract Aim: We aimed to demonstrate the independent effect of mean arterial pressure (MAP) on incident nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) among the nonobese Chinese with normal low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels. Methods: 16,153 nonobese participants without NAFLD at baseline were enrolled and then assigned to four groups by quartiles of MAP (Q1-Q4). A subgroup analysis by gender was also conducted. Participants were diagnosed with NAFLD by ultrasonography. Results: During a mean follow-up of 2.80 years, the cumulative incidence of ...

This study provides direct evidence for the contribution of gut microbiota to the cognitive decline during normal aging and suggests that restoring microbiota homeostasis in the elderly may improve cognitive function. On Nutraceutical Senolytics Nutraceuticals are compounds derived from foods, usually plants. In principle one can find useful therapies in the natural world, taking the approach of identifying interesting molecules and refining them to a greater potency than naturally occurs in order to produce a usefully large therape...

This study aimed to investigate whether RBD leads to liver inflammatory changes and altered reverse cholesterol metabolism in C57BL6/J mice compared to the control group, receiving a standard chow diet. To evaluate liver inflammation, ionized calcium-binding adapter protein-1 (IBA-1) positive cell counting, interleukin (IL)-1β immunohistochemistry, and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α and IL-10 transcription levels were analyzed. In addition, we assessed reverse cholesterol transport by measuring liver apolipoprotein (Apo)E, ApoA-I, and lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) by RT-PCR. Furthermore, serum alani...

This study tested the roles of cysteine protease cathepsin B (CatB) in mouse NASH development. Immunoblot revealed increased liver CatB expression in NASH mice. Fructose-palmitate-cholesterol diet increased body weight gain, liver to body weight ratio, blood fasting glucose, plasma total cholesterol and alanine transaminase levels, and liver triglyceride, but decreased plasma high-density lipoprotein in wild-type mice.

2,3,5,4'-tetrahydroxystilbence-2-O-β-D-glucoside attenuates hepatic steatosis via IKKβ/NF-κB and Keap1-Nrf2 pathways in larval zebrafish. Biomed Pharmacother. 2020 May 05;127:110138 Authors: Wang C, Hu NH, Yu LY, Gong LH, Dai XY, Peng C, Li YX Abstract With the improvement of people's living standards and the change of dietary habits, Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has gradually become one of the liver diseases that endanger human health around the world. However, there are no particularly effective drugs for NAFLD in the current market. Therefore, new drug candidates which ...

This study was designed to evaluate hepatic fat content and visceral lipids following moderate-intensity continuous aerobic exercise in hepatic patients with diabesity. Design: A single-blinded randomised controlled trial. Methods: Thirty-one diabetic obese patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease were recruited into this study. The patients were randomly classified into exercise and control groups, fifteen patients in the exercise group and sixteen patients in the control group. The exercise group received an 8-week moderate-intensity continuous aerobic exercise program with standard medical treatment, while...

Authors: Ma X, Huang Y, Ding Y, Shi L, Zhong X, Kang M, Li C Abstract Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has become a common health issue worldwide, and P-element-induced wimpy testis (PIWI)-interacting RNAs (piRNAs) have been shown to be differentially expressed in a variety of diseases. The aim of the present study was to investigate the potential relationship between piRNA and NAFLD. A NAFLD mouse model was established using a methionine- and choline-deficient (MCD) diet and methionine- and choline-sufficient (MCS) diet. Following this, mouse liver tissues were removed and stained with hematoxylin and eos...
