Elafibranor | PPARalpha/delta agonist

Elafibranor (923978-27-2) is a dual PPARα/δ agonist (EC50 PPARα = 10-20 nM; PPARδ = 100-150 nM).1 It was able to decrease plasma triglycerides levels1, increase HDL cholesterol levels in human studies1, and improve hepatic and peripheral insulin sensitivity2. Elafibranor’s antidiabetic effects in db/db were without the adverse cardiac effects seen in PPARγ agonism.3 Elafibranor has also been shown to have therapeutic promise in the treatment of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).4-6
