2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) is a potent hepatotoxin that exerts its toxicity through binding to the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) and the subsequent induction or repression of gene transcription. In order to further identify novel genes and pathways that may be associated with TCDD-induced hepatotoxicity, we investigated gene changes in rat(More)
In this work, we investigated a potential mechanism behind the observation of increased aminotransferase levels in a phase I clinical trial using a lipid-lowering drug, the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) alpha agonist, AZD4619. In healthy volunteers treated with AZD4619, serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase(More)
Prediction of developmental toxicity in vitro could be based on short-time toxicogenomic endpoints in embryo-derived cell lines. Microarray studies in P19 mouse embryocarcinoma cells and mouse embryos have indicated that valproic acid (VPA), an inducer of neural tube defects, deregulates the expression of many genes, including those critically involved in(More)
AIMS Several drugs blocking the rapidly activating potassium (K(r)) channel cause malformations (including cardiac defects) and embryonic death in animal teratology studies. In humans, these drugs have an established risk for acquired long-QT syndrome and arrhythmia. Recently, associations between cardiac defects and spontaneous abortions have been reported(More)
γ-Secretase inhibition represents a major therapeutic strategy for lowering amyloid β (Aβ) peptide production in Alzheimer's disease (AD). Progress toward clinical use of γ-secretase inhibitors has, however, been hampered due to mechanism-based adverse events, primarily related to impairment of Notch signaling. The γ-secretase inhibitor MRK-560 represents(More)
The dual peroxisome-proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) α/γ agonist tesaglitazar has been shown to produce fibrosarcomas in rats. Here, the authors studied morphology, proliferation, differentiation, and inflammation markers in adipose tissue from rats exposed to 1, 3, or 10 µmol/kg tesaglitazar for 2 or 12 weeks, including recovery groups (12 weeks(More)
