抜粋

Lovastatin, an inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutarylcoenzyme A reductase, normalizes the very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFA) concentrations in fibroblasts and plasma from patients with X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD). The effects of lovastatin on the accumulation of VLCFA in tissues of adrenoleukodystrophy protein (ALDP)-deficient mice were assessed. ALDP-deficient mice were fed chow with 0.01-0.1% lovastatin for 4-8 weeks. The VLCFA concentrations in the plasma, brain, spinal cord, liver and kidneys were measured. Treatment with 0.1% lovastatin significantly reduced body weight and total cholesterol in the plasma of ALDP-deficient mice. Treatment with lovastatin, however, did not correct the accumulation of VLCFA in the plasma or tissues, including the brain and spinal cord. Lovastatin does not affect the accumulation of VLCFA in ALDP-deficient tissues in mice.
