We evaluated the insulinotropic and antihyperglycaemic actions of glucokinase activators (GKAs), especially through acute and subchronic studies in rodent diabetes models with (2R)-2-(4-cyclopropanesulphonylphenyl)-N-(5-fluorothiazol-2-yl)-3-(tetrahydropyran-4-yl)propionamide (PSN-GK1), a novel and potent GKA. The action of PSN-GK1 on or in the following(More)
Allosteric activators of the glucose-sensing enzyme glucokinase (GK) are currently attracting much interest as potential antidiabetic therapies because they can achieve powerful blood glucose lowering through actions in multiple organs. Here, the optimization of a weakly active high-throughput screening hit to (2 R)-2-(4-cyclopropanesulfonylphenyl)-(More)
Acute systemic (oral, dermal, inhalation) toxicity testing of agrochemical formulations (end-use products) is mainly needed for Classification and Labelling (C&L) and definition of personal protection equipment (PPE). A retrospective analysis of 225 formulations with available in vivo data showed that: A) LD50/LC50 values were above limit doses in <20.2%(More)
Analysis of the prevalence of health effects in large scale databases is key in defining testing strategies within the context of Integrated Approaches on Testing and Assessment (IATA), and is relevant to drive policy changes in existing regulatory toxicology frameworks towards non-animal approaches. A retrospective analysis of existing results from in vivo(More)
The noradrenaline (NA) and serotonin reuptake inhibitor, sibutramine, gives effective weight loss, but full efficacy cannot be attained at approved doses due to cardiovascular side effects. We assessed in rats the contributions of NA and serotonin transporters to sibutramine's hypophagic and cardiovascular effects, and whether selective 5-hydroxytryptamine(More)
