Medical researchers have illuminated a critical player in cholesterol metabolism that acts as a molecular guardian in cells to help maintain cholesterol levels within a safe, narrow range. Known as Nrf1, it both senses and responds to excess cholesterol, and could represent a potential new therapeutic target in a multitude of diseases where cholesterol metabolism is disrupted.

LDL-cholesterol-lowering drug evolocumab reduced risk of major cardiovascular events and major adverse limb events among peripheral artery disease sub-population from the FOURIER trial. A new sub-analysis of the FOURIER clinical trial, however, now offers information on the safety and effectiveness of giving the PCSK9 inhibitor evolocumab on top of statin therapy to patients with peripheral artery disease.

In the largest study of its kind, less than half of patients prescribed the new class of cholesterol drugs, PCSK9 inhibitors, received insurance approval even if patients had atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (plaque build-up of the arteries) or markedly elevated bad cholesterol. The most significant factor associated with approval was insurance type, with Medicare patients more likely to be approved than those with private insurance.

High cholesterol levels have been associated with breast cancer spreading to other sites in the body, but doctors and researchers don't know the cause for the link. A new study found that the culprit is a byproduct of cholesterol metabolism that acts on specific immune cells so that they facilitate the cancer's spread instead of stopping it.

Researchers have tested a genetically-modified soybean oil used in restaurants and found that while it induces less obesity and insulin resistance than conventional soybean oil, its effects on diabetes and fatty liver are similar to those of conventional soybean oil, the major vegetable cooking oil used in the United States, with popularity on the increase worldwide. The study also compares the GM soybean oil to coconut and olive oils.
