Translational Aspects of the Mammalian Target of Rapamycin Complexes in Diabetic Nephropathy.

Alaa Abou Daher, Sahar Alkhansa, William S Azar, Rim Rafeh, Hilda E Ghadieh, Assaad Antoine Eid,

<h4>Significance</h4>Despite the many efforts put into understanding diabetic nephropathy (DN), direct treatments for DN have yet to be discovered. Understanding the mechanisms behind DN is an essential step in the development of novel therapeutic regimens. The mTOR pathway has emerged as an important candidate in the quest for drug discovery ... Read more >>

Targeting perivascular and epicardial adipose tissue inflammation: therapeutic opportunities for cardiovascular disease.

Rim Rafeh, Anissa Viveiros, Gavin Y Oudit, Ahmed F El-Yazbi,

Major shifts in human lifestyle and dietary habits toward sedentary behavior and refined food intake triggered steep increase in the incidence of metabolic disorders including obesity and Type 2 diabetes. Patients with metabolic disease are at a high risk of cardiovascular complications ranging from microvascular dysfunction to cardiometabolic syndromes including ... Read more >>

Amelioration of perivascular adipose inflammation reverses vascular dysfunction in a model of nonobese prediabetic metabolic challenge: potential role of antidiabetic drugs.

Mohammed A W Elkhatib, Ali Mroueh, Rim W Rafeh, Fatima Sleiman, Hosny Fouad, Evan I Saad, Mohamed A Fouda, Ola Elgaddar, Khodr Issa, Ali H Eid, Assaad A Eid, Khaled S Abd-Elrahman, Ahmed F El-Yazbi,

The onset of vascular impairment precedes that of diagnostic hyperglycemia in diabetic patients suggesting a vascular insult early in the course of metabolic dysfunction without a well-defined mechanism. Mounting evidence implicates adipose inflammation in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance and diabetes. It is not certain whether amelioration of adipose inflammation ... Read more >>

Tackling neuroinflammation and cholinergic deficit in Alzheimer's disease: Multi-target inhibitors of cholinesterases, cyclooxygenase-2 and 15-lipoxygenase.

Ehab D AlFadly, Perihan A Elzahhar, Anna Tramarin, Salwa Elkazaz, Hossam Shaltout, Marwa M Abu-Serie, Jana Janockova, Ondrej Soukup, Doaa A Ghareeb, Ahmed F El-Yazbi, Rim W Rafeh, Nour-Mounira Z Bakkar, Firas Kobeissy, Isabel Iriepa, Ignacio Moraleda, Manal N S Saudi, Manuela Bartolini, Ahmed S F Belal,

Neuroinflammation and cholinergic deficit are key detrimental processes involved in Alzheimer's disease. Hence, in the search for novel and effective treatment strategies, the multi-target-directed ligand paradigm was applied to the rational design of two series of new hybrids endowed with anti-inflammatory and anticholinesterase activity via triple targeting properties, namely able ...
