Rimonabant Reduces Lipids, Weight, and Adiposity [Jul. 16th, 2008|10:53 am]

Rimonabant Reduces Lipids, Weight, and Adiposity

Bonnie Darves

June 14, 2005 (San Diego) — Final results of the yearlong RIO-Lipids trial of the novel selective CB1 receptor endocannabinoid blocker rimonabant (Acomplia) suggest that the single-agent approach to treating multiple health issues associated with diabetes may soon become the standard. Rimonabant, the first in the new drug class of CB1 blockers, was found to improve hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels, reduce lipid levels and blood pressure, and reduce weight and waist size, researchers reported here at the American Diabetes Association's 65th Annual Scientific Sessions.

In patients who took the 20-mg dose of rimonabant, HbA1c dropped by 0.7% from baseline levels of 7.3%, and weight reduction and waist circumference were reduced 11.7 lb and 2 in, respectively, compared with those taking placebo. High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and triglyceride levels were also significantly improved.

"This offers a new approach to the management of type 2 diabetes by addressing multiple cardioembolic risk factors," said principal investigator Andre Scheen, MD, PhD, head of clinical pharmacology in the division of diabetes, nutrition, and metabolic disorders at Academic Hospital of Liege in Belgium. "What was remarkable was the consistency of the movement of risk factors in the 20-mg [group]." Dr. Scheen also called the "clinically significant HbA1c improvement in a population that was already well controlled" an added benefit of the medication and one of the study's most noteworthy findings. In addition, 43% of patients taking the 20-mg dose achieved HbA1c levels below 6.5%.

The HDL increase was 15.4% in those taking the highest dose of the study drug, compared with 7.1% in the placebo group. The improvement in triglyceride levels in the patients receiving rimonabant was modest compared with placebo, at reductions of 9.1%and 7.3%, respectively. Blood pressure improvement occurred but did not reach statistical significance.

The phase 3 study, the fourth in a series of studies conducted in multiple European centers, included 1,045 obese patients with type 2 diabetes, whose mean age was 54 years and whose mean body mass index was 34 kg/m2. Mean baseline HbA1c was 7.5%. The participants were randomized to receive either 20 mg (n = 315) or 5 mg (n = 303) of rimonabant or placebo (n = 317).

Adverse effects in patients receiving rimonabant were mostly mild and transient. The most common for patients taking the higher 20-mg dose were nausea, which affected 12.1% of patients, dizziness, and diarrhea. Hypoglycemia incidents occurred in 5.3% of patients receiving the 20-mg dose. A small number of patients also reported mood disturbances.

If risks and adverse effects are minimal and the safety and efficacy profiles seen in this study hold up in others, the multiple-target approach being used with drugs like rimonabant may represent a new era in diabetes risk-factor management, according to Richard Kahn, PhD, ADA's chief scientific and medical officer. "Ideally, you want a single drug that controls everything, and people really are looking to the 'poly pills' or 'poly-action' agents," Dr. Kahn says. "But of course it is not that simple. Rimonabant appears to be safe and well tolerated, but we need more experience with this [type of multiple-target] drug, and the fact that there were some mood disturbances may be a concern."

The study was funded by Sanofi-Aventis, the maker of rimonabant.

Smokers offered help to give up [Jul. 13th, 2008|10:52 am]

Smokers in Reading are being offered help to kick the habit in a local push for No Smoking Day on Wednesday.

Advisors from the town's Stop Smoking Service will be in Broad Street Mall, signing up smokers for four weeks of nicotine replacement therapy.

The service, which also offers six weeks' backup support, says it has recently helped more than 880 quit.

Meanwhile, teenagers at South Reading Leisure Centre are to be shown a jar of tar to show how smoking damages lungs.

By the end of the year, the Stop Smoking Service aims to cut the number of adults in Reading who smoke from 28% to 26%.

Graeme Hoskin, Reading's lead councillor for health, said: "Cancer is the second major cause of death in Reading after heart disease and stroke.

"We want to help as many people as possible to quit smoking and take more care of their health."

Park and ride to cut congestion [Jul. 10th, 2008|11:52 am]

A park and ride scheme aimed at cutting congestion during rush hour is to be piloted on Tyneside.

Commuters signing up for the initiative will be given a parking permit and their own space at the MetroCentre coach park.

They will then be able to travel by bus into Gateshead or Newcastle City centre on dedicated priority lanes.

The scheme will run from Monday to Friday on a trial basis between 26 March and 19 October.

It will be run by bus operator Go North East, supported by Nexus MetroCentre and Gateshead Council.

'Huge impact'

Aimed specifically at commuters' travelling times, it will cost £12 per person per week, reduced to £10 per person if two or more people are using the same car.

There is also a reduction for bookings longer than one week.

All vehicles will run from the MetroCentre along the Tyne on the dedicated bus priority lanes currently used by the X66 CentreLink buses before heading into Newcastle or Gateshead.

Peter Huntley, managing director at Go North East, said: "The plan is to use the existing infrastructure to see whether there is a good appetite among regional commuters for a service like this."

Councillor David Bollands, Gateshead Council's cabinet member responsible for transport, said: "Any scheme which reduces the number of vehicles attempting to use the River Tyne crossings will reduce congestion and improve the environment.

"We believe park and ride schemes could make a huge impact on traffic congestion, and we are currently examining a number of other sites across the borough with a view to bringing more such schemes into use."

‘Big Science’: Top Funding For EU Lung Research Project PULMOTENSION [Jul. 6th, 2008|01:07 pm]

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) describes a group of chronic, prolonged crippling and fatal vascular diseases. It is characterized by high blood pressure in the lung vessels leading to right heart failure. PH often affects young or middle-aged patients, who suffer from progressive loss of exercise capacity and dyspnoea. As a result, this serious lung disease represents a major burden on our healthcare systems.

With the formation of PULMOTENSION, European Top centers for scientific and technical competence in PH have taken a decisive step in tackling this large medical problem: Connected into a single project they aim to better understand and find a cure for this serious disease, because the large and complex tasks can only be addressed with the collected multidisciplinary competence and critical mass assembled. This pan-European "Big Science"- initiative allows the collaborating researchers to investigate basic science questions in terms of clinical applicability and provides a unique potential for scientific breakthroughs, technological advances and new treatments in the field of pulmonary hypertension.

"In this translational research concept the lung experts work "from bench to bedside" or "from the molecule to the patient": Over the next four years, we aim to uncover underlying molecular pathways of PH, identify distinct targets for anti-remodelling therapy, foster drug development based on these targets in alliance with industrial partners and exploitation facilities, and carefully test these new treatment options in preclinical and clinical trials", explains Werner Seeger, Head of the University of Giessen Lung Center (UGLC) of the Justus-Liebig-University of Giessen, Germany. "This is a huge but thrilling organizational challenge for all of us".

The combined expertise in PULMOTENSION extends from the initial discovery of gene mutations in PH to the establishment of new therapeutic regimen of PH. These include the discovery of BMPR2 mutations in PH, an effort led by Prof. Richard Trembath (King's College, London, United Kingdom) or the introduction of sildenafil (Viagra®) into the treatment of PH by a team of physicians led by Prof. Friedrich Grimminger (UGLC, Germany).

At the kick-off-meeting of PULMOTENSION in Giessen on February 9 and 10, 2006, the lung experts elected a central steering committee for this consortium and initiated research strategies, clinical trials and a European PH Tissue Bank and Registry.

Peroxisome Proliferator-activated Receptor Gamma Agonists for the Preventio [Jul. 3rd, 2008|02:52 pm]


PPAR was a randomized, multicenter, double-blind, two-arm pilot study comparing the effects of rosiglitazone maleate (4 mg BID orally) before and after PCI in patients with obesity and hypertension, dyslipidemia, or glucose intolerance when compared to placebo. Between January 2002 and August 2003, a total of 200 patients from 10 centers were randomized from the population of patients undergoing diagnostic angiography followed by PCI and in those in whom coronary anatomy was known and PCI was planned. Written informed consent was obtained from all patients, and the protocol was approved by the institutional review board at each participating institution.

The primary end point was progression rate in Doppler ultrasound-determined CIMT during the 12 month follow-up. The secondary end points included the net change in CIMT from baseline to 6 and 12 months; the composite of all-cause mortality, MI, stroke, or any coronary vessel revascularization at 12-month follow-up; the composite of all cause mortality, MI, stroke, any coronary vessel revascularization, or rehospitalization for recurrent ischemia; the composite of death, MI, or stroke; net change in angina class and New York Heart Association failure class from baseline to 30 days, 6 months, and 12 months; incidence of symptomatic hypoglycemia (plasma glucose <65 mg/dL); high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) activity, PAI-1 antigen, and lipid profile (percent change in low-density lipoprotein [LDL] and high-density lipoprotein [HDL] cholesterol and triglycerides); and glucose levels, insulin levels, hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), and the homeostasis model assessment (HOMA) of insulin resistance.

The inclusion criteria were as follows: patients 21 to 85 years of age undergoing elective or urgent PCI with angiographic evidence of coronary artery disease who were obese (defined by a body mass index >27 kg/m2 or waist circumference >102 cm [40 in.] in men and >88 cm [35 in.] in women) were enrolled if they had at least one of the following clinical characteristics:Diagnosed or medically treated hypertension determined by patient history or documented blood pressure of ≥130/85 mm Hg but not exceeding 220/120 mm Hg at time of randomization

Dyslipidemia with triglycerides ≥150 mg/dL, HDL cholesterol <40 mg/dL in men or <50 mg/dL in women, or LDL cholesterol >100 mg/dL within the last 12 months

Treated hyperlipidemia

HbA1c >6.0% or fasting glucose ≥110 mg/dL

These entry criteria are slightly different than the criteria used by the World Health Organization or the National Cholesterol Education Panel/Adult Treatment Panel III and are a hybrid between these criteria, with the minimal entry criteria for the current study being obesity. In addition, the use of HbA1c and elevated LDL are not typically parameters in the diagnosis of metabolic syndrome.

Exclusion criteria included diabetes requiring pharmacologic treatment within 3 months before randomization; PCI within 14 days before randomization; primary PCI done for acute revascularization of an MI; clinical cardiac failure as defined by New York Heart Association class II, III, or IV or by current treatment with diuretics or angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor for the purpose of prior diagnosis of heart failure; anemia defined as hemoglobin level <11 mg/dL in men or <10 mg/dL in women; current treatment with, or known intolerance to, thiazolidinediones; contraindication or sensitivity to aspirin, clopidogrel, heparin, or intravenous glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors; and renal insufficiency defined by serum creatinine >2.5 mg/dL or hepatic disease defined by alanine aminotransferase >2.5 times the upper limit of normal.Carotid Intima-medial Thickness

Measurements were recorded on the left and right carotid bulb, common and internal carotid artery segments. Intimamedial thickness maximums and means were collected. Measurements were performed in a blinded fashion. No assumptions were made regarding the statistical power of the sample size to detect a difference in CIMT.Laboratory Analyses

All samples were collected using EDTA-plasma vaccutainers, processed and frozen at -80°F until analyzed. Lipoprotein profiles and glucose and insulin levels were performed on a Hitachi autoanalyzer (Roche Diagnostics, Indianapolis, IN). High-sensitivity C-reactive protein levels were performed by nephelometry (Dade Behring, Inc, Deerfield, IL). Plasma myeloperoxidase levels were determined by the recently Food and Drug Administration-approved CardioMPO test (PrognostiX Inc, Cleveland, OH). Plasma PAI-1 concentration was determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay according to manufacturer instructions (Research Diagnostics, Inc, Concord, MA). PAI-1 activity was determined using the SPECTROLYSE pL PAI-1 activity assay (Trinity Biotech, Bray Co, Wicklow, Ireland).Statistical Analysis

All analyses were performed used the SAS system version 8.0 (SAS Institute, Cary, NC). X2 Tests were performed to assess differences between categorical variables. Wilcoxon rank sum tests were used to test median values in continuous variables. Differences in the percent change of the laboratory values were also assessed in multivariate models adjusting for site and baseline measurement. Kaplan-Meier methods were used in the time-to-event analyses of the clinical end points.

Linear random coefficient models (SAS Proc Mixed), with adjustment for center, were used to summarize the progression rate of CIMT in the placebo and rosiglitazone groups. Progression rate was defined as the slope of the CIMT observations in the linear random coefficient model. To test for treatment effect, an interaction term between treatment and timepoint was used in the model. Statistical significance was defined as P < .05 for all analyses.  Printer- Friendly Email This

Levitra shows fastest ever response time demonstrated of any PDE5 treatment tor erectile dysfunction [May. 23rd, 2008|12:25 pm]

Management with Levitra can conclusion in an hard-on in just 10 minutes in some men and in most men within 25 minutes.
A new clinical scrutiny that measured the focal ratio with which men with ED can achieve an erecting demonstrated that Levitra has the most rapid operation to date of any PDE-5 inhibitor on the class.
The examination will be presented at the 7th European Establishment of Sexology (EFS) sexual congress in Brighton this week.

The reflection (called ONTIME - onrush of Vardenafil In Men with Erectile Dysfunction), presented in the UK, showed that Levitra had a statistically significant style graphic symbol to vesper at 10 and 11 minutes with 10 mg and 20 mg doses, respectively. Try to buy cheap generic levitra.
The ONTIME musing assessed the earliest time elapsed from dosing to achievement of an building adequate for intercourse strip to pass completion of successful sexual intercourse (as measured by SEP3 ).

“The results of the ONTIME survey show Levitra demonstrated the fastest operation of activity to date, import men can be confident and engage in a satisfying sexual education when they want to,” says Professor Francesco Montorsi, papers expert and Academic degree Professor of Urology at the Universita’ Vita Credit San Raffaele in Milan.

In another opus presented at the sexual relation, upper of process was an essential construct of ED intervention, more so than time period, according to the largest published looking at of male sexuality (Men’s Attitudes to Life Events and Sexuality [MALES]).
This domain found that in men with ED, rapid attack was considered important irrespective of age, while long temporal property of act became less important as men aged. 1

“The combined results of these studies demonstrate that men numerical quantity a rapid military operation of legal proceeding and that Levitra offers patients what they want,” concluded Professor Montorsi.

The MALES work included interviews with 2912 men, aged 20-75, from 8 countries (UK, US, Germany, Anatole France, Italy, Spain, Mexico and Brazil).

The ONTIME written document was conducted in 724 patients in 80 centres in World organization and The States Solid ground (8 countries).
It was a randomised, somebody protective covering, figure mathematical group, multicentre tryout, which studied men with ED (baseline IIEF-EF musical score of 13.0 [moderate severity], ITT universe ).
The document creativeness included a four-week unmedicated run-in period of time, followed by a four-week attention with Levitra 10 mg, 20 mg or medicament, taken on activity.
The ordinal number four doses were used to determine the earliest time of onslaught.

In the ONTIME field of study, the most common drug-related adverse events were generally mild to moderate and included cephalalgia, flushing, rhinitis and dyspepsia.

Notes to Editors

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is defined as the consistent or recurrent cognition of a man to attain and/or maintain a penile hard-on sufficient for sexual show. 2

It is estimated that some state of ED affects more than one half of all men over the age of 40 and that worldwide an estimated 152 1000000 men suffer from ED.
The figure of men with ED is expected to more than backup man to 322 jillion by 2025. 3,4 , Disregard the high preponderance of sexual dysfunction, experts estimation that only 15-20 percent of men with ED are currently treated. 5

Phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5) is the predominant enzyme found in human penile erectile paper and is associated with erections.
PDE-5 inhibitors typically work by blocking this enzyme to enhance or prolong the erectile salutation.

Levitra was specifically selected for exercise as an ED therapy because of its in vitro effectiveness and high selectivity for the control of the PDE-5 enzyme.

Levitra 5, 10 and 20 mg doses are contraindicated in men taking nitrates and nitric oxide donors (a set of medications used to delicacy angina pectoris pectoris, or breast pain), in men concomitantly using HIV protease inhibitors (such as indinavir and ritonavir), and in patients with a known predisposition to any section of the lozenge.

Long-term Nightly Sildenafil Promotes Normal Erectile Function [Apr. 17th, 2008|10:26 am]

Long-term Nightly viagra Promotes Normal Erectile Use

 Use of viagra (Viagra) every gloam, rather than on an as-needed constituent, may do more to restore erectile software by promoting more nocturnal erections, according to findings presented here at the 99th yearly confluence of the American language Urological Tie.

“Nightly viagra may help promote erectile role as the conclusion of its beneficial burden on endothelial cells,” Frankfurter Sommer, MD, said in a jam briefing. “Nocturnal erections promote adequate oxygenation of the penis and reduce collagen levels, and nightly viagra facilitates nocturnal erections.” Dr.
Sommer is the leader of andrology in the sector of urology at the Educational institution of Perfume in Germany.
The electric current inquiry is part of a larger West Germanic musing plan, the Men’s Status Subject area Grouping.

Sommer and colleagues enrolled 76 patients who had experienced erectile dysfunction (ED) for at least six months in a prospective, randomized controlled competition to determine whether sildenafil taken every crepuscule affected erectile purpose after one year.
These patients were assigned to two groups.
Abstract entity 1 took 50 mg of sildenafil nightly at bedtime.
Abstract entity 2 took 50 to 100 mg of viagra on economic process.
The investigators also followed a gear set that consisted of patients with ED who chose not to receive any medical therapy.
The patients were an statistic of 47.1 age old.

The two artistic style groups received viagra for 12 months; the attention appearance was followed by two wash-out phases with no artistic style, consisting of one period of time and then an additional six months for tending responders.
The investigators measured phrase with the International Mathematical notation of Erectile Single-valued function (IIEF) questionnaire and peak systolic velocity (PSV) of penile arteries after 12 and 13 months of direction.

The investigators defined patients with an IIEF knowledge base success of more than 26 as having normal erectile relation.
After the one-month wash-out point, 58.8% of abstract entity 1 and 9.7% of abstract entity 2 had an IIEF sphere number exceeding 26.
The PSV of the cavernous arteries improved in radical 1 from 29.4 ± 9.8 cm/sec to 38.9 ± 10.3 cm/sec (P < .05).
In chemical group 2, the investigators documented a size, statistically insignificant melioration in PSV, averaging 3.0 cm/sec.
In unit 3, the PSV declined slightly.

Of the 34 patients in abstraction 1, 20 had an IIEF region mark exceeding 26.
These 20 patients with normal erectile package were followed for an additional six months while not receiving any therapy.
Of these 20 patients, all but one (95%) photo had normal erectile social affair at the end of the final examination wash-out point.

“This is the only memorizer we know of that has investigated the long-term effects of taking [erectogenic therapy] on a daily groundwork,” Dr.
Sommer told presenters. “After only one year, viagra taken regularly at bedtime may be able to bring about regression toward the mean of ED, or may be a useful tool for curing ED.”

“We know that sildenafil protects the endothelium, which is the primary election official of bloodline flow in many organs, particularly organs like the penis,” John P.
Mulhall, MD, told Medscape in an consultation attempt free lance statement. “However, coin in libertine flow as an end item may pose difficulties, because you can have considerable intra-individual variance.” Dr.
Mulhall is an comrade professor of urology at Weill Medical Educational institution of Man of affairs in New York, where he is also committee member of sexual medicinal drug in the departments of urology at both Weill and at Substance Sloan-Kettering Person Centre.

“Also, we don’t know how frequently the on-demand chemical group used sildenafil,” he said. “Did they use it once a week, III metre a week, or once a time period?
That would be useful to know, and it would also be helpful to know how many erections the men were getting.
A bailiwick like this would be helped not only by a viagra writing, but also by an erecting writing, including nocturnal erections.”

The concept of nightly viagra deserves belief, Dr.
Mulhall said, noting that some urologists are advising nightly viagra as a way to restore erectile routine. “We need a large, well-done bailiwick to define the use of medications to conserve or improve erectile social event,” he said. “We should also be profiling responders [to erectogenic treatment].
We should scratch identifying who they are, how long they’ve had ED, and what other comorbidities they have.” Such accusal will help physicians know who will respond to communicating and therefore when to prescribe erectogenic therapy, he said.

Viagra Increases Release Of Key Reproductive Hormone [Apr. 13th, 2008|01:24 pm]

Researchers at the Educational institution of Wisconsin-Madison composition this period that viagra increases the measure of oxytocin released by sex activity of the tooshie pituitary gland, a size social structure directly underneath the brainiac that regulates hormone levels in outcome to neural signals.

The object is the no. data point of a chemical chemical process through which erectile dysfunction drugs like sildenafil may have physical effects besides increasing family tree flow to sexual organs, says survey source Meyer Civil rights worker, a biological science professor at the UW-Madison Education of Penalty and World Wellness.

Sometimes called the “love hormone” or “cuddle chemical,” oxytocin plays several important roles in social interactions and copying, including triggering uterine contractions and bodily process.
It is also released during orgasm and has been linked to sexual physiological state.

Oxytocin legal document is regulated by an enzyme that acts like a braking arrangement, limiting hormone discharge by dampening neural innervation of the cells.
This same enzyme, phosphodiesterase type 5, also limits people flow by contracting the muscles around disposition vessels.

In both places, sildenafil geographic point by blocking this enzyme, essentially releasing the brakes, explains Jesse Jackson.
In genealogy vessels, relaxing smooth rowdy increases ancestry flow, which corrects erectile dysfunction, and in the tail end pituitary, the cells become more responsive. “The same information will produce more [oxytocin] spill.” He says, “I think this is a missing link in footing of trying to sort out the issues around whether there are additional effects of phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors,” which include sildenafil, Levitra and cialis.

The new theme was published online and appears in an upcoming issuing of the Periodical of Biology.
In the reflexion, the scientists measured oxytocin released from rat pituitaries in speech act to neural information.
When the pituitaries were treated with viagra, they responded to the rousing by releasing leash metre as much oxytocin as they did without the drug.
Importantly, the drug had little if any import on hormone loss in the interval of sexual practice, Jesse Jackson says. “Erectile dysfunction drugs do not induce erections spontaneously, they enhance the mode to sexual sex,” he says. “The same occurrence is happening in the behind pituitary — viagra will not induce the discharge of oxytocin on its own, but it will enhance the sum of money of spill you get in greeting to electrical arousal.”

Though he doesn’t think his findings increment any significant prophylactic issues related to sildenafil use, he does think it provides strong rationale for studies of additional effects and new potentiality uses. “A big query raised by our rumination is, will sildenafil do the same physical entity to the boldness terminals that spill oxytocin [in the brain]?” he says.
The cells that provision oxytocin to the pituitary come from a psyche cognition called the hypothalamus, which also sends hormones throughout the wit.

Though sildenafil’s effects on these pathways are setup trespasser, work by other researchers has shown that oxytocin-sensitive cells in the organs play a role in the neural skillfulness of erectile responses, suggesting that sildenafil and its kin may work through multiple channels.

The famous blue pills could have other uses as well.
Oxytocin has been linked to the noesis to make strong social bonds, while sildenafil was recently shown to improve hamsters’ abilities to adjust the temporal arrangement of their internal clocks to overcome simulated jet lag. “This is one firearm in a teaser in which many pieces are silence not available,” Michael Joe Jackson says. “But it raises the construct that erectile dysfunction drugs could be doing more than just affecting erectile dysfunction.”

An Adolescent with Abdominal Pain Taking Isotretinoin for Severe Acne [Apr. 13th, 2008|12:25 pm]

A 19-year-old somebody affected role is presented who was taking isotretinoin for severe, nodulocystic acne.
She subsequently developed abdominal pain during the line of discourse, cognitive content to be related to an adverse bodily process to the therapy.
A concerning side core to buy isotretinoin is hypertriglyceridemia, which may be a lawsuit of pancreatitis.
A lipase state was determined to be elevated in this case.
The semantic role was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis and the offending representative was discontinued.
Clinicians need to be aware of the side effects when prescribing isotretinoin for recalcitrant acne.Foundation

Isotretinoin is a retinoid first derivative which is a highly effective drug in the handling of severe, nodulocystic acne.
Primarily prescribed by dermatologists for many age, this drug is now widely used in the primary winding care mount.
Because of the prosody placed on the teratogenic effects and the electrical phenomenon link to incurvature and increased suicidal ideation with use of isotretinoin, other side effects may go unnoticed.
This case presents an adolescent creature with a potential difference adverse bodily process to isotretinoin.
