KC-404: a potential anti-allergic agent with antagonistic action against slow reacting substance of anaphylaxis.
The mode of action of a novel compound, 3-isobutyryl-2-isopropylpyrazolo [1,5-a]pyridine (KC-404), as a potential anti-allergic agent has been investigated. KC-404 was shown to have a directExpand

Inhibition of ileal Na+/bile acid cotransporter by S-8921 reduces serum cholesterol and prevents atherosclerosis in rabbits.
The ileal Na+/bile acid cotransporter (IBAT) plays an important role in the enterohepatic circulation of bile acids. We investigated the effects of IBAT inhibition on the maintenance of serumExpand

Lysophosphatidylcholine promotes cholesterol efflux from mouse macrophage foam cells.
We examined the effects of lysophosphatidylcholine (lyso-PC) on promoting cholesterol efflux from macrophage foam cells. Mouse peritoneal macrophages were converted to foam cells by incubation withExpand

S-8921, an ileal Na+/bile acid cotransporter inhibitor decreases serum cholesterol in hamsters.
The ileal Na+/bile acid cotransporter (IBAT) maintains the reabsorption of bile acids from the intestine in the enterohepatic circulation of bile acids. In the present study, we showed that S-8921Expand
