Acute clozapine exposure in vivo induces lipid accumulation and marked sequential changes in the expression of SREBP, PPAR, and LXR target genes in rat liver


Several antipsychotic drugs (APDs) have high propensity to induce weight gain and dyslipidemia in patients, with clozapine and olanzapine as the most potent drugs. These lipid-related effects have been attributed to drug-mediated blockade or antagonism of histamine H1 and serotonin 5-HT2 receptors as well as activation of hypothalamic AMP-activated protein… (More)
