Differential effects of selective- and pan-PPAR agonists on experimental steatohepatitis and hepatic macrophages.

In an experimental study, S. Lefere et al. investigated the efficacy of single and pan-PPAR agonists in the treatment of progressive steatohepatitis. The authors employed the CDAA-HFD (choline-deficient, amino acid-defined high-fat diet-induced) model, which induces severe inflammation and liver fibrosis. Mice were fed the CDAA-HFD for 12 weeks, and PPAR agonist treatment was administered during the last 6 weeks of diet feeding.
