  • 2013 (First Publication: 13 August 2013)
  • Aim Several recent reports have revealed that dipeptidyl peptidase (DPP)-4 inhibitors have suppressive effects on atherosclerosis in apolipoprotein E-null (Apoe −/−) mice. It remains to be seen,Expand

  • 2012 (First Publication: 1 July 2012)
  • We recently discovered that glucagon-like peptide-1 and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide can both prevent the development of atherosclerosis in apolipoprotein E-null (Apoe(-/-)) mice. InExpand
