GFT505 improves insulin sensitivity and early studies indicate it may be useful in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease which is being tested in a Phase IIb study1. Elafibranor is well tolerated and does not cause weight gain or cardiac events, but does produce a mild, reversible increase in serum creatinine. Elafibranor improves insulin sensitivity, glucose homeostasis, and lipid metabolism and reduces inflammation2. GFT505 treatment improves glucose control and plasma lipids in diabetic db/db mice. A significant dose-dependent reduction of hepatic expression of the key gluconeogenic enzymes glucose 6-phosphatase (G6Pase), PEPCK, and fructose 1,6-bisphosphatase 1 (FBP1) is observed with GFT505. GFT505 does not induce cardiac adverse effects of PPARγ-activating agonists in monkeys3.

Calculation results:

Working concentration: mg/ml;

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
3. All of the above co-solvents are available for purchase on the GlpBio website.
