Ethanol Affects Liver Oxidative Stress and Methylation Status in HCV-infection: study on NS5A-Transgenic Mice

Background: Alcohol consumption accelerates the progression and worsens the outcomes of hepatitis C viral (HCV) infection in heavy and moderate drinkers. Non-structural NS5A protein is a known inducer of oxidative stress and carcinogenesis. Although alcohol consumption exacerbates the course of HCV-infection, the combined effects of NS5A protein and alcohol have not been studied and experimental…

Molecular Basis of Pathogenesis of Ectopic Fat Deposition in DM2 – An Overview

The presence of fat, beyond physiological limits, in organs, other than the adipose tissue, like the liver, the skeletal muscle, the heart and the pancreas etc. is called ectopic fat. It causes specific organ dysfunction in the tissues concerned. The importance of the ectopic fat is that it is connected to peripheral tissue insulin resistance,…

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Mechanisms of Action of Fibrates – An Overview

Fibrates are a class of medication that mainly lowers the blood triglyceride levels. They reduce the LDL and increase the levels of HDL C, in the blood. Clofibrate, the first member to be discovered  in 1962, and introduced in USA in 1967, is withdrawn in 2002, due to unexplained hepatomegaly, hepato-toxicity and possible risk of hepatic cancer. Other fibrates are introduced…
