Les dernières recommandations américaines concernant la prise en charge des dyslipidémies en prévention cardiovasculaire ont soulevé de nombreuses questions par leurs différences avec nos approches habituelles. Entre autres, elles ont éradiqué la nécessité de « cible » de LDL-C à atteindre en fonction du niveau de risque cardiovasculaire et ont proposé plutôt une stratégie basée sur l’intensité de la réduction relative du LDL-C. L’examen critique et la comparaison des recommandations font apparaitre, toutefois, plus de similitudes que de différences, tout en encourageant à repenser certains aspects de notre pratique et à raviver notre motivation pour le plus grand bien des patients.

Triplixam is a fixed dose combination of three well known antihypertensive agents, with complementary activities, to control blood pressure in patients with arterial hypertension: perindopril, an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, indapamide, a diuretic whith thiazide-like effects but also specific properties, and amlodipine, a long-acting calcium antagonist of the dihydropyridine family. The potential synergic action allows better control of blood pressure with once daily administration, while limiting the incidence of adverse events. Various presentations with different dosages are available to facilitate individualized therapy. Warnings and precautions for use of every molecule should of course be respected. Such a fixed dose combination should contribute to limit clinical inertia and to improve therapeutic compliance. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 30 (0 ULg)

Biological aging is characterized by a progressive loss of the secretion of various hormones, a phenomenon that leads some physicians to propose an anti-aging hormonal therapy. It is mandatory to differentiate: 1) the physiological functional loss, which is a natural phenomenon without clear deleterious consequences on health and should not be compensated by the administration of hormones only to restore plasma levels similar to those measured in young people and 2) a pathological defect that deserves a replacement therapy to correct the endocrine deficiency and improve the health status of older individuals. This article considers the deficiencies in insulin, thyroid hormones, growth hormone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and testosterone. For each hormone, a benefit/risk ratio of a so-called replacement therapy will be analyzed. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 55 (4 ULg)

Brivaracetam is a synaptic vesicle protein 2A ligand in phase III development for epilepsy. A phase I, open-label, randomized study was conducted in 42 healthy male participants to assess the effect of brivaracetam on CYP3A activity using midazolam as a probe. Participants were randomized to oral brivaracetam 5, 50, or 150 mg/day from Day 8 to Day 14. A single oral dose (7.5 mg) of midazolam was administered on Days 1, 13, and 20, and full pharmacokinetic profiles were obtained. For all brivaracetam doses, the areas under the plasma concentration-time curves from 0 to infinity (AUCinf ) for midazolam and 1'-hydroxymidazolam were similar on Days 13 and 20 compared with Day 1. Following brivaracetam 150 mg/day, the Day 13/Day 1 AUCinf ratio (90% confidence interval) was 1.09 (0.97, 1.21) and 1.04 (0.93, 1.17) for midazolam and 1'-hydroxymidazolam, respectively. For the Day 20/Day 1 comparison, the corresponding AUCinf ratios were 1.10 (0.98, 1.23) and 1.07 (0.97, 1.18). Maximum midazolam plasma concentration was increased on both Day 13 and Day 20 vs. Day 1 but the relevance of this finding was unclear. This study indicates that brivaracetam up to 150 mg/day has no significant inducing or inhibiting effect on CYP3A activity. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 11 (0 ULg)

Introduction: Inhibitors of sodium-glucose cotransporters type 2 (SGLT2), which increase urinary glucose excretion independently of insulin, are proposed as a novel approach for the management of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Areas covered: An extensive literature search was performed to analyze the pharmacokinetic characteristics, toxicological issues and safety concerns of SGLT2 inhibitors in humans. This review focuses on three compounds (dapagliflozin, canagliflozin, empagliflozin) with results obtained in healthy volunteers (including drug-drug interactions), patients with T2DM (single dose and multiple doses) and special populations (those with renal or hepatic impairment). Expert opinion: The three pharmacological agents share an excellent oral bioavailability, long half-life allowing once-daily administration, low accumulation index and renal clearance, the absence of active metabolites and a limited propensity to drug-drug interactions. No clinically relevant changes in pharmacokinetic parameters were observed in T2DM patients or in patients with mild/moderate renal or hepatic impairment. Adverse events are a slightly increased incidence of mycotic genital and rare benign urinary infections. SGLT2 inhibitors have the potential to reduce several cardiovascular risk factors, and cardiovascular outcome trials are currently ongoing. The best positioning of SGLT2 inhibitors in the armamentarium for treating T2DM is still a matter of debate. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 34 (4 ULg)

Diabetes mellitus is a common chronic disease in the elderly, being either a known disease with a long history (type 1 or even more often type 2 diabetes) and then frequently associated with various diabetic complications, or a recently diagnosed diabetes that may, however, have been ignored for a rather long time. In this latter case, diabetes may present as the occurrence or aggravation of one or several geriatric syndromes that overall result in a loss of autonomy. The global geriatric assessment, the estimation of life expectancy and the justification of glucose-lowering treatments should be performed at regular intervals in elderly diabetic people as they determine the right choice of glucose target levels and the best selection of glucose-lowering agents. Medications that can induce hypoglycaemia should ideally be avoided, especially in the frailty older population. The benefit-risk ratio of the proposed therapies should be analyzed first, and then regularly reassessed because of a potentially rapidly progressing condition. The recommended approach is a tailored management of diabetes that should integrate the clinical, functional and psycho-social aspects of elderly individuals.

It is recognized that abdominal obesity is accompanied by a chronic low-grade inflammation that is involved in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes are associated with an abnormal production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, an increased level of acute-phase proteins and an activation of inflammatory signalling pathways. These pro-inflammatory cytokines, mainly produced by adipose tissue macrophages, are involved in development of obesity-associated insulin resistance and in the progression from obesity to type 2 diabetes. Particularly, the interleukin-1 beta may play a key role through the activation of the NLRP3 inflammasome. Adipose tissue topography, more than the total amount of fat, may play an important pathogenic role. Indeed, the presence of metabolic abnormalities in obesity is associated with a deleterious immunological and inflammatory profile of visceral adipose tissue and with an increased activation of the NLRP3 inflammasome in macrophages infiltrating visceral adipose tissue. Targeting inflammation, especially NLRP3 inflammasome, may offer potential novel therapeutic perspectives in the prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes.

Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus have an increased risk of chronic liver disease (CLD) such as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and steatohepatitis, and about one-third of cirrhotic patients have diabetes. However, the use of several antidiabetic agents, such as metformin and sulphonylureas, may be a concern in case of hepatic impairment (HI). New glucose-lowering agents targeting the incretin system are increasingly used for the management of type 2 diabetes. Incretin-based therapies comprise oral inhibitors of dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) (gliptins) or injectable glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. This narrative review summarises the available data regarding the use of both incretin-based therapies in patients with HI. In contrast to old glucose-lowering agents, they were evaluated in specifically designed acute pharmacokinetic studies in patients with various degrees of HI and their hepatic safety was carefully analysed in large clinical trials. Only mild changes in pharmacokinetic characteristics of DPP-4 inhibitors were observed in patients with different degrees of HI, presumably without major clinical relevance. GLP-1 receptor agonists have a renal excretion rather than liver metabolism. Specific pharmacokinetic data in patients with HI are only available for liraglutide. No significant changes in liver enzymes were reported with DPP-4 inhibitors or GLP-1 receptor agonists, alone or in combination with various other glucose-lowering agents, in clinical trials up to 2 years in length. On the contrary, preliminary data suggested that incretin-based therapies may be beneficial in patients with CLD, more particularly in the presence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Nevertheless, caution should be recommended, especially in patients with advanced cirrhosis, because of a lack of clinical experience with incretin-based therapies in these vulnerable patients.

Elderly patients, having various chronic diseases, are generally exposed to polypharmacy that may lead to potential adverse events. The latter may be explained by pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic particularities that render elderly individuals more vulnerable when exposed to certain medications. Recruitment of elderly patients in clinical trials is often limited, so that it is not always easy to determine the real benefit/risk ratio of pharmacotherapy in this population. Obviously, iatrogenicity is quite frequent. Therefore, in front of unexplained alterations of health status in an elderly individual, the physician should consider the possibility of a drug adverse effect. Because of this situation, the physician should envisage a reasonable drug prescription in an elderly patient. Especially, not only the initiation of drug therapy should be carefully analyzed, but also the opportunity to eventually stop a medication that may be useless or even dangerous. Rather polypharmacy per se, it is the inappropriate prescription that should be avoided in the elderly. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 59 (3 ULg)
