Bottom Line: The ED50 for these effects was found to be 0.05, 0.19, and 0.19 mg/kg, respectively with highly significant (91%) reduction in serum insulin and AUC-glucose following oral glucose administration (59%) at 1 mg/kg dose.Saroglitazar also showed a significant decrease in SBP (22 mmHg) and increase (62.1%) in serum adiponectin levels in Zucker fa/fa rats.A 90-day repeated dose comparative study in Wistar rats and marmosets confirmed efficacy (TG lowering) potential of Saroglitazar and has indicated low risk of PPAR-associated side effects in humans.

ABSTRACT
Saroglitazar is a novel nonthiazolidinediones (TZD) and nonfibric acid derivative designed to act as dual regulator of lipids and glucose metabolism by activating peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPAR). These studies evaluate the efficacy and safety profile of Saroglitazar in preclinical in vitro and in vivo models. The EC50 values of Saroglitazar assessed in HepG2 cells using PPAR transactivation assay for hPPARα and hPPARγ were 0.65 pmol/L and 3 nmol/L, respectively. In db/db mice, 12-day treatment with Saroglitazar (0.01-3 mg/kg per day, orally) caused dose-dependent reductions in serum triglycerides (TG), free fatty acids (FFA), and glucose. The ED50 for these effects was found to be 0.05, 0.19, and 0.19 mg/kg, respectively with highly significant (91%) reduction in serum insulin and AUC-glucose following oral glucose administration (59%) at 1 mg/kg dose. Significant reduction in serum TG (upto 90%) was also observed in Zucker fa/fa rats, Swiss albino mice, and in high fat -high cholesterol (HF-HC)-fed Golden Syrian hamsters. LDL cholesterol was significantly lowered in hApoB100/hCETP double transgenic mice and HF-HC diet fed Golden Syrian Hamsters. Hyperinsulinemic-Euglycemic clamp study in Zucker fa/fa rats demonstrated potent insulin-sensitizing activity. Saroglitazar also showed a significant decrease in SBP (22 mmHg) and increase (62.1%) in serum adiponectin levels in Zucker fa/fa rats. A 90-day repeated dose comparative study in Wistar rats and marmosets confirmed efficacy (TG lowering) potential of Saroglitazar and has indicated low risk of PPAR-associated side effects in humans. Based on efficacy and safety profile, Saroglitazar appears to have good potential as novel therapeutic agent for treatment of dyslipidemia and diabetes.

Effect of Saroglitazar on (A) serum triglyceride and (B) AUC- glucose in oral glucose tolerance test in Zucker fa/fa rats treated for 14 days. Serum triglyceride was measured on pretreatment and on day 14 1 h post dose and on day 15 overnight fasted animals were subjected to oral glucose tolerance test with glucose load (3 g/kg). The values are calculated as percent change versus control and expressed as mean ± SEM (n = 7). *Indicates significantly different from vehicle-treated control group P < 0.05 (ANOVA).

Mentions: In Zucker fa/fa rats, Saroglitazar treatment led to dose-dependent reduction in serum TG and improvement in oral glucose tolerance along with significant reduction in insulin. The 3 mg/kg dose showed reduction of 81.7% in serum TG, 69.3% in FFA, and 84.8% reduction in serum insulin and 51.5% improvement in AUCglucose (Table2 and Fig.3A and B) as compared to control group. The ED50 for TG-lowering effect was found to be 0.26 mg/kg and a reduction of 85.5% in serum TG was seen at 3 mg/kg dose. Pioglitazone showed comparable reduction up to 82% in serum TG, 84% in FFA, 95% in insulin, and 39% improvement in AUCglucose.
