OBJECTIVE CER-001 is a novel engineered HDL-mimetic comprised of recombinant human apoA-I and phospholipids that was designed to mimic the beneficial properties of nascent pre-β HDL. In this study, we have evaluated the capacity of CER-001 to perform reverse lipid transport in single dose studies as well as to regress atherosclerosis in LDLr(-/-) mice after(More)
Little is known about the underlying effects controlling in vitro-in vivo correlations (IVIVCs) for biodegradable controlled release microspheres. Most reports of IVIVCs that exist are empirical in nature, typically based on a mathematical relationship between in vitro and in vivo drug release, with the latter often estimated by deconvolution of(More)
OBJECTIVE CER-001 is a novel engineered HDL-mimetic comprised of recombinant human apoA-I and charged phospholipids that was designed to mimic the beneficial properties of nascent pre-ß HDL. In this study, we have evaluated the dose-dependent regulation of ABCA1 expression in vitro and in vivo in the presence of CER-001 and native HDL (HDL3). METHODS AND(More)
A suspension of 3 X 10(7) cells of longterm carcinoma cell lines--HLaC 78 and 79 from human laryngeal carcinoma, CaKi 1 derived from renal cell carcinoma and PC 3 from prostatic carcinoma,--was pumped with maximum pressure up to 5 times through the filters of the Bentley autotransfusion device. Following filter passage after centrifugation the untrapped(More)
Release testing of parental controlled release microspheres is an essential step in controlling quality and predicting the duration of efficacy. In the first of a two-part study, we examined the effect of various incubation media on release from leuprolide-loaded PLGA microspheres to understand the influence of external pH, plasticization, and buffer type(More)
Cytochrome P450s (P450s) are a superfamily of enzymes responsible for the catalysis of a wide range of substrates. Dynamic interactions between full-length membrane-bound P450 and its redox partner cytochrome b5 (cytb5 ) have been found to be important for the enzymatic activity of P450. However, the stability of the circa 70 kDa membrane-bound complex in(More)
The purpose of this study was to develop a novel synthetic high-density lipoprotein (sHDL) nanoparticle delivery system for 10-hydroxycamptothecin (HCPT) for treatment of colon carcinoma. HDL is recognized by scavenger receptor B-I (SR-BI) over-expressed in colon carcinomas 5- to 35-fold relative to the human fibroblasts. The sHDL nanoparticles were(More)
apoA-I, apoA-I mimetic peptides, and their lipid complexes or reconstituted high-density lipoprotein (HDL) have been studied as treatments for various pathologies. However, consensus is lacking about the best method for administration, by intravenous (IV) or intraperitoneal (IP) routes, and formulation, as an HDL particle or in a lipid-free form. The(More)
During continuous infusions of 24--48 hours, glycerol utilization and turnover capacity in rats were estimated in a range from physiological to toxic doses. Total clearance, elimination constant, half life, transfer and pool size were calculated for various rates of infusion as well as for the endogenous turnover. With increasing blood level, the turnover(More)
