Statin/fibrate combinations are frequently used to treat mixed dyslipidemia. However, these combinations may cause life-threatening drug interactions (e.g. rhabdomyolysis) possibly induced by modifications of cytochrome P450 isozyme activities. Some statins are also transported by P-glycoprotein (Pgp) and may act as inhibitors of this drug efflux pump. So far, nothing is known about possible Pgp modulating effects of fibrates. We tested whether gemfibrozil, fenofibrate, fenofibric acid, and bezafibrate inhibit Pgp in vitro using a calcein acetoxymethylester (calcein-AM) uptake assay and confocal laser scanning microscopy with bodipy-verapamil as substrate in L-MDR1 cells, which overexpress human Pgp. In uptake assays in cells with (L-MDR1) and without (LLC-PK1) human Pgp we also investigated whether these compounds are transported by Pgp. Intracellular concentrations were measured by liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry. Of the tested fibrates, only fenofibrate increased calcein-AM uptake into cells indicating an inhibition of Pgp mediated transport by this compound. The potency of fenofibrate (mean+/-SD: 7.1+/-3.2 microM), evaluated by calculating the concentration needed to double baseline fluorescence (f2), was similar to that of simvastatin (5.8+/-1.5 microM), lovastatin (10.1+/-1.0), and verapamil (4.7+/-0.8 microM). For simvastatin and fenofibrate Pgp inhibition was confirmed with confocal laser scanning microscopy. Fenofibrate, fenofibric acid, gemfibrozil, and bezafibrate showed no difference in the cellular uptake between LLC-PK1 and L-MDR1, indicating that the tested fibrates are not Pgp substrates. In conclusion, this study demonstrates that fenofibrate inhibits Pgp in vitro with a potency similar to simvastatin.

The thiazolidinedione PPAR-γ activator drugs rosiglitazone and pioglitazone suppress insulin resistance in type 2 diabetic patients. They lock lipids into adipose tissue triglyceride stores, thereby preventing lipid metabolites from causing insulin resistance in liver and skeletal muscle and β-cell failure. They also reduce the secretion of inflammatory cytokines such as TNFα and increase the plasma level of adiponectin, which increases insulin sensitivity in liver and skeletal muscle. However, they have only a modest effect on dyslipidaemia, and they increase fat mass and plasma volume. Fibrate PPAR-α activator drugs decrease plasma triglycerides and increase HDL-cholesterol levels. PPAR-δ activators increase the capacity for fat oxidation in skeletal muscle.Clinical experience with bezafibrate, which activates PPAR-δ and -α, and studies on the PPAR-α/δ activator tetradecylthioacetic acid, the PPAR-δ activator GW501516, and combinations of the PPAR-α activator fenofibrate with rosiglitazone or pioglitazone have encouraged attempts to develop single molecules that activate two or all three PPARs. Most effort has focussed on dual PPAR-α/γ activators. These reduce both hyperglycaemia and dyslipidaemia, but their development has been terminated by issues such as increased weight gain, oedema, plasma creatinine and myocardial infarction or stroke. In addition, the FDA has stated that many PPAR ligands submitted to it have caused increased numbers of tumours in carcinogenicity studies.Rather than aiming for full potent agonists, it may be best to identify subtype-selective partial agonists or compounds that selectively activate PPAR signalling pathways and use these in combination. Nutrients or modified lipids that are low-affinity agonists may also have potential.

Fenofibrate treatment lowered fasting Lp-PLA2 mass by 13.2% (-19.0 to -7.7) versus placebo (2.3% [-5.0 to 4.1], P = .0002) and total ox-FA by 15.5% (-34.2 to +1.4) versus an 11.5% increase with placebo (P = .0013). In age-, sex-, and treatment-adjusted models, changes in Lp-PLA2 mass were associated with reductions in chemical LDL cholesterol (r = 0.59, P < .01) and measured total LDL particles (LDL-Ps) (r = 0.64, P < .01) and small LDL-Ps (r = 0.57, P < .01). In models that included small LDL, effects of fenofibrate on Lp-PLA2 mass were attenuated (P = .125), but not in models that included LDL cholesterol (P < .0001) and LDL-Ps (P = .005). Changes in Lp-PLA2 mass were not significantly associated with changes in ox-FA or inflammatory markers.

A total of 165 patients (117 men, 48 women; mean [SD] age, 50.1 [10.7] years; mean TC concentration, 289 mg/dL) were randomized to receive atorvastatin (n = 81) or fenofibrate (n = 84). Compared with fenofibrate, atorvastatin was associated with a significantly greater mean (SD) percentage decrease in TC (27.0% [12.3%] vs 16.5% [12.9%]; P < 0.001), calculated LDL-C (35.4% [15.8%] vs 17.3% [17.2%]; P < 0.001), TC/high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) ratio (29.1% [16.3%] vs 22.9% [15.9%]; P = 0.001), and apoB (30.3% [12.7%] vs 19.6% [15.5%]; P < 0.001). Compared with atorvastatin, fenofibrate was associated with a significantly greater decrease in TG (37.2% [25.9%] vs 20.2% [27.3%]; P < 0.001) and a significantly greater increase in HDL-C concentration (10.4% [15.7%] vs 4.6% [12.1%]; P = 0.017). Fibrinogen concentration was significantly different between the 2 groups (P = 0.002); it was decreased with fenofibrate use (4.6% [23.7%]) and was increased with atorvastatin use (5.7% [23.5%]). Atorvastatin did not markedly affect the LDL distribution; it was associated with a homogeneous decrease in cholesterol and apoB concentrations in all subfractions, whereas fenofibrate was associated with a marked movement toward a normalized LDL profile, shifting the sdLDL subfractions toward larger and less atherogenic particles, particularly in those patients with baseline TG ≥200 mg/dL. No serious AEs related to the study treatments were reported. A total of 5 AEs were observed in 8 patients, including: abdominal pain, 3 patients (2 in the atorvastatin group and 1 in the fenofibrate group); abnormal liver function test results, 1 (fenofibrate); increased creatine Phosphokinase activity, 2 (atorvastatin); gastrointestinal disorders, 1 (fenofibrate); and vertigo, 1 (fenofibrate).

After maximizing statin and lifestyle adherence, some patients may benefit from additional low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) lowering. The potential for net benefit from added therapy can inform nonstatin decision-making. Considering patient risk and the LDL-C level on statin, the additional potential cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk reduction benefit from further lowering LDL-C depends on the magnitude of LDL-C lowering from the nonstatin. Ezetimibe is the only nonstatin shown to reduce atherosclerotic CVD events added to a statin, albeit modestly, since it modestly reduces LDL-C by about 20%. Proprotein Convertase Subtilisin-Like/Kexin Type 9 mononclonal antibodies lower LDL-Cby 45-65%, but definitive CVD outcomes and safety trials are pending. Niacin and fenofibrate do not clearly reduce CVD events in statin-treated patients, and may increase adverse events. Bile acid sequestrants have not been evaluated in CVD outcome trials in statin-treated patients, and have an excess of adverse effects. Cost also plays a role in access to nonstatin therapy. These considerations may inform shared decision-making.

There is accumulating evidence that risk profiles differ between coronary artery disease and abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). However, diabetes mellitus (DM) appears to be negatively associated with AAA formation. The underlying mechanisms for this negative relationship are far from defined, but may include: increased arterial wall matrix formation via advanced glycation end products; suppression of plasmin and reduction of levels and activity of matrix metalloproteinases (MMP)-2 Generic Avodart Uk and 9; diminished aortic wall macrophage infiltration, elastolysis and neovascularization. In addition, the effect of pharmacological agents used for the treatment of patients with DM on AAA formation has been studied with rather controversial results. Statins, angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers, fenofibrate, antibiotics and some hypoglycemic agents are beginning to be appreciated for a potential modest protection from AAAs, but further studies are needed.

Fish oil feeding showed less obesity in rodents, relative to other dietary oils. N-3 fatty acids rich in fish oil and fibrate compounds are peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARalpha) ligands that stimulate beta-oxidation of fatty acids in liver and are used for treatment of hypertriglycemic patients. Since UCP-2, a member of an uncoupling protein family, has been shown to express in hepatocytes, the effects of these agents on the expression of UCP2 mRNA were investigated. C57BL/6J mice were divided into three groups; the first group was given a high-carbohydrate diet, and the other two groups were given a high-fat diet (60% of total energy) as safflower oil or fish oil for 5 months. Safflower oil diet fed mice developed obesity, but those fed fish oil diet did not. Therefore, the effects of fish oil feeding on the expression of UCP1 Omnicef Dosing Uti , UCP2 and UCP3 in liver, skeletal muscle (gastrocnemius), white adipose tissue (WAT) and brown adipose tissue (BAT) were assessed by Northern blotting. Compared with safflower oil feeding, fish oil feeding up-regulated liver UCP2, BAT UCP2 and skeletal muscle UCP3 mRNA, while down-regulated WAT UCP2 and BAT UCP3 mRNA. Among these alterations, 5-fold up-regulation of liver UCP2 mRNA, relative to carbohydrate feeding, was noteworthy. Fenofibrate administration (about 500 mg/kg BW/d) for 2 wks also induced liver UCP2 expression by 9-fold. These data indicated that fish oil feeding and fibrate administration each up-regulated UCP2 mRNA expression in liver possibly via PPARalpha and hence each has the potential of increasing energy expenditure for prevention of obesity.

We observed a small improvement in FMD after both fenofibrate and atorvastatin (from 2.26% to 2.98% and 2.87%, respectively; NS). PBF increased from 448 ml/min to 536 ml/min after fenofibrate (P=0.04) and to 570 ml/min after atorvastatin (P=0.03). The effects of both fenofibrate and atorvastatin on endothelial function did not differ significantly (P-values of 0.82 and 0.47 for FMD and PBF, respectively). Significant correlations (P<0.01) between the changes of vascular reactivity and biochemical indices were found between FMD and CRP (r=-0.60) and between both FMD and PBF, and insulinaemia (r=-0.48 and -0.56, respectively) only during treatment with fenofibrate.

According to the NCEP resins and nicotinic acid were selected as drugs of choice to treat hypercholesterolemia. Gemfibrozil and nicotinic acid were recommended for patients with HDL cholesterol below 35 mg/dl. Current concepts of efficacy and side effects lead to the following recommendations. a) type IIa severe hypercholesterolemia (LDL > 220 mg/dl): HGMC inhibitors or combined therapy with resins and nicotinic acid, fenofibrate, or bezafibrate. b) Moderate hypercholesterolemia (LDL < 220 mg/dl): bezafibrate and/or acipimox if HDL is < 35 mg/dl; fenofibrate, bezafibrate and/or acipimox if HDL > 35 mg/dl. As second line drugs, the HGMC inhibitors. c) Type IIb hyperlipidemia: first line, acipimox; second line, fibrates associated to acipimox. d) Type III hyperlipidemia: first line, fibrates; second line, an association of HGMC inhibitors and fibrates or acipimox. e) Type IV moderate hyperlipidemia (TG < 500 mg/dl): first line, acipimox, second line, fibrates alone or in association with acipimox. As general remarks, lovastatin has been effective and well tolerated in 98% of cases. Pravastatin seems to have very little side effects. Acipimox, a nicotinic acid derivative is especially effective in elevating HDL2b levels and decreasing LDL III. Given its adequate tolerance, acipimox has replaced nicotinic acid.

Two independent clinical studies have reported that fenofibrate, a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor α (PPARα) agonist, has robust therapeutic effects on microvascular complications of diabetes, including diabetic retinopathy (DR) in type 2 diabetic patients. However, the expression and function of PPARα in the retina are unclear. Here, we demonstrated that PPARα is expressed in multiple cell types in the retina. In both type 1 and type 2 diabetes models, expression of PPARα, but not PPARβ/δ or PPARγ, was significantly down-regulated in the retina. Furthermore, high-glucose medium was sufficient to down-regulate PPARα expression in cultured retinal cells. To further investigate the role of PPARα in DR, diabetes was induced in PPARα knockout (KO) mice and wild-type (WT) mice. Diabetic PPARα KO mice developed more severe DR, as shown by retinal vascular leakage, leukostasis, pericyte loss, capillary degeneration, and over-expression of inflammatory factors, compared with diabetic WT mice. In addition, overexpression of PPARα in the retina of diabetic rats significantly alleviated diabetes-induced retinal vascular leakage and retinal inflammation. Furthermore, PPARα overexpression inhibited endothelial cell migration and proliferation. These findings revealed that diabetes-induced down-regulation of PPARα plays an important role in DR. Up-regulation or activation of PPARα may represent a novel therapeutic strategy for DR.
