BAY x 1005 attenuates atherosclerosis in apoE/LDLR - double knockout mice.


PMID 17928652

Abstract

Recently, we have shown that MK-886 - an inhibitor of five lipoxygenase activating protein (FLAP) inhibits atherosclerosis in apolipoprotein E / LDL receptor - double knockout mice. We, therefore, wanted to find out if other FLAP inhibitor - BAYx1005 given at a dose of 1.88 mg per 100 mg of body weight per day during 16 weeks, could also attenuate atherogenesis. In apoE/LDLR - DKO mouse model BAYx1005 inhibited atherogenesis, measured both by "en face" method (23.84 +/- 2.7% vs. 15.16 +/- 1.4%) and "cross-section" method (497236 +/- 31516 microm(2) vs. 278107 +/- 21824 microm(2)). This is the first report that shows the effect of BAYx1005 on atherogenesis in gene-targeted mice.
