1.Dexamethasone protects neonatal hypoxic-ischemic brain injury via L-PGDS-dependent PGD2-DP1-pERK signaling pathway.
Gonzalez-Rodriguez PJ;Li Y;Martinez F;Zhang L PLoS One. 2014 Dec 4;9(12):e114470. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0114470. eCollection 2014.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: ;Glucocorticoids pretreatment confers protection against neonatal hypoxic-ischemic (HI) brain injury. However, the molecular mechanism remains poorly elucidated. We tested the hypothesis that glucocorticoids protect against HI brain injury in neonatal rat by stimulation of lipocalin-type prostaglandin D synthase (L-PGDS)-induced prostaglandin D2 (PGD2)-DP1-pERK mediated signaling pathway.;METHODS: ;Dexamethasone and inhibitors were administered via intracerebroventricular (i.c.v) injections into 10-day-old rat brains. Levels of L-PGD2, D prostanoid (DP1) receptor, pERK1/2 and PGD2 were determined by Western immunoblotting and ELISA, respectively. Brain injury was evaluated 48 hours after conduction of HI in 10-day-old rat pups.;RESULTS: ;Dexamethasone pretreatment significantly upregulated L-PGDS expression and the biosynthesis of PGD2. Dexamethasone also selectively increased isoform pERK-44 level in the neonatal rat brains. Inhibitors of L-PGDS (SeCl4), DP1 (MK-0524) and MAPK (PD98059) abrogated dexamethasone-induced increases in pERK-44 level, respectively. Of importance, these inhibitors also blocked dexamethasone-mediated neuroprotective effects against HI brain injury in neonatal rat brains.

3.Extended-release niacin/laropiprant: reducing niacin-induced flushing to better realize the benefit of niacin in improving cardiovascular risk factors.
Paolini JF;Bays HE;Ballantyne CM;Davidson M;Pasternak R;Maccubbin D;Norquist JM;Lai E;Waters MG;Kuznetsova O;Sisk CM;Mitchel YB Cardiol Clin. 2008 Nov;26(4):547-60.
Treatment with niacin effectively improves multiple lipid parameters and cardiovascular outcomes. Widespread use of niacin, however, is limited by flushing, which is mediated primarily by prostaglandin D2 (PGD2). Laropiprant is a selective PGD2 receptor 1 (DP1) antagonist that reduces objective measures of niacin-induced flushing symptoms upon initiation of therapy and with more chronic use. Results from early dosing and formulation studies have culminated in the development of a combination extended-release (ER) niacin/laropiprant tablet aimed at providing the beneficial lipid-modifying effects of niacin, while reducing niacin-induced flushing. The improvement in the tolerability of niacin with ER niacin/laropiprant allows niacin dosing to initiate directly at 1 g and rapidly advance to a 2-g target dose. ER niacin/laropiprant generally is tolerated well and represents a new treatment option for dyslipidemia that offers the potential for more patients to receive the lipid-modifying and cardiovascular benefits of niacin.
