Inhibitors of the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) protease have entered clinical study as potential therapeutic agents for HIV-1 infection. The clinical efficacy of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase inhibitors has been limited by the emergence of resistant viral variants. Similarly, variants expressing resistance to protease inhibitors have been(More)
Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) is a promising therapeutic target for treating coronary heart disease. We report a novel antibody 1B20 that binds to PCSK9 with sub-nanomolar affinity and antagonizes PCSK9 function in-vitro. In CETP/LDLR-hemi mice two successive doses of 1B20, administered 14 days apart at 3 or 10 mpk, induced dose(More)
Atrial cardiocytes contain granules typical of protein-secreting cells, and atrial extracts are known to contain a powerful natriuretic and diuretic activity and to possess smooth muscle relaxant activity. A variety of active atrial peptides have been isolated, including a family of related peptides showing natriuretic, diuretic and smooth muscle relaxant(More)
