How to use
Dalcetrapib modulates CETP activity. Dalcetrapib induces a conformational change in CETP, when added to human plasma. CETP-induced pre-β-HDL formation in human plasma is unchanged by Dalcetrapib ≤3 µM and increased at 10 µM. Dalcetrapib statistically and significantly increases pre-β-HDL formation. Dalcetrapib achieves 50% inhibition of CETP activity in human plasma at a concentration of 9 μM. Dalcetrapib inhibits the CETP activity of media in HepG2 in a dose-dependent manner.
Treatment with Dalcetrapib leads to significant increases in HDL-C levels. In hamsters injected with [3H]cholesterol-labeled autologous macrophages Dalcetrapib significantly increases fecal elimination of both [3H]neutral sterols and [3H]bile acids. Dalcetrapib increases plasma HDL-[3H]cholesterol. Dalcetrapib has 95% inhibition of CETP activity in male Japanese white rabbits at an oral dose of 30 mg/kg. Dalcetrapib increases the plasma HDL cholesterol level by 27% and 54%, respectively, when given at oral doses of 30 mg/kg or 100 mg/kg once a day for 3 days to male Japanese white rabbits. Treatment with Dalcetrapib markedly increases serum levels of HDL-C. The ratio of HDL2-C to HDL3-C is significantly higher in Dalcetrapib–treated rabbits than in control rabbits at 5 and 7 months, indicating that the inhibition of CETP activity by Dalcetrapib changes the distribution of HDL subfractions and preferentially increases HDL2-C levels. Dalcetrapib treatment increases serum paraoxonase activity and HDL-associated platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase activity, but decreases the plasma lysophosphatidylcholine concentration.
