Niacin Increases Atherogenic Proteins in High-Density Lipoprotein of Statin-Treated Subjects
CONCLUSIONS: The addition of niacin to statin therapy resulted in elevated levels of multiple HDL proteins linked to increased atherosclerotic risk, which might have compromised the cardioprotective effects associated with higher HDL-C levels and lower levels of LDL-C and triglycerides.REGISTRATION: URL: https://www.clinicaltrials.gov; Unique identifier: NCT00715273; NCT00880178; NCT00120289.PMID:34134520 | DOI:10.1161/ATVBAHA.121.316278 (Source: Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology)

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVE: Subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) is not homogeneous, as the fascia scarpa separates the deep SAT (dSAT) from the superficial SAT (sSAT). The aim of this study was to evaluate the sex-specific associations of sSAT and dSAT with hepatic steatosis and the metabolic syndrome in overweight individuals.METHODS: We recruited 285 individuals with a BMI≥27 kg/m 2, aged 55-81 years. Abdominal magnetic resonance imaging was performed around level L4-L5 to measure VAT, dSAT and sSAT volumes. The amount of hepatic fat...

Decreased continuous sitting time increases heart rate variability in patients with cardiovascular risk factors
ConclusionThese results suggest that a decrease in sitting time might induce parasympathetic activity during sleep. Therefore, reducing continuous sitting time during the day might contribute, in part, to improving the prognosis of patients with cardiovascular risk factors not only by avoiding muscle loss but also by providing positive influences on parasympathetic tone during sleep.

Oleate Prevents Palmitate-Induced Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Chondrocytes
The association between obesity and osteoarthritis (OA) in joints not subjected to mechanical overload, together with the relationship between OA and metabolic syndrome, suggests that there are systemic factors related to metabolic disorders that are involved in the metabolic phenotype of OA. The aim of this work is study the effects of palmitate and oleate on cellular metabolism in an “in vitro” model of human chondrocytes. The TC28a2 chondrocyte cell line was used to analyze the effect of palmitate and oleate on mitochondrial and glycolytic function, Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production and lipid droplets ...

Novel Insights Into Monogenic Obesity Syndrome Due to INPP5E Gene Variant: A Case Report of a Female Patient
A Caucasian girl with consanguineous parents presented with early severe obesity and retinal dystrophy. A novel, homozygous gene truncating variant (c.1897C>T) in the INPP5E gene confirmed the diagnosis of MORMS (OMIM #610156). A novel clinical finding in the presented syndrome is progressive cone-rod type retinal dystrophy diagnosed at the age of four months that progressed in the 1st decade of life. Severe obesity, insulin resistance with hyperinsulinism, and impaired glucose tolerance developed alongside other components of the metabolic syndrome - dyslipidemia, arterial hypertension, and obstructive hypopnea in slee...

Tetrahydroxanthohumol, a xanthohumol derivative, attenuates high-fat diet-induced hepatic steatosis by antagonizing PPAR γ
The objective of the current study was to determine the effect of XN and TXN on lipid accumulation in the liver. Non-supplemented mice were unable to adapt their caloric intake to 60% HFD, resulting in obesity and hepatic steatosis; however, TXN reduced weight gain and decreased hepatic steatosis. Liver transcriptomics indicated that TXN might antagonize lipogenic PPAR γ actions in vivo. XN and TXN inhibited rosiglitazone-induced 3T3-L1 cell differentiation concomitant with decreased expression of lipogenesis-related genes. A peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) competitive binding assay sho...

Antimicrobial Peptides: A New Hope in Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Fields
Antibiotics are essential drugs used to treat pathogenic bacteria, but their prolonged use contributes to the development and spread of drug-resistant microorganisms. Antibiotic resistance is a serious challenge and has led to the need for new alternative molecules less prone to bacterial resistance. Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) have aroused great interest as potential next-generation antibiotics, since they are bioactive small proteins, naturally produced by all living organisms, and representing the first line of defense against fungi, viruses and bacteria. AMPs are commonly classified according to their sources, which ...
