Finerenone beneficial impact in ovariectomized mice

A recent study, directed by A Ouvrard-Pascaud, published in ESC Heart Failure describes the beneficial impact of Mineralocorticoid receptor blockade, with finerenone, on cardiac function and exercise capacity in ovariectomized mice. Briefly, the authors evaluated whether the non-steroidal mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist finerenone limited the progression of heart failure in ovariectomized (OVX) mice with metabolic disorders. They found that Finerenone improved mitochondrial ATP production in OVX mice. In addition, weight gain, increased blood pressure, and decreased insulin and glucose tolerance developing in OVX mice were improved by finerenone. The exercise capacity was diminished in untreated OVX mice and improved with Finerenone.

sEH blockade prevents cardiorenal syndrome

A recent experimental study, directed by D Guerrout, published in Front Mol Biosci , describes the beneficial cardiac impact, on both diastolic and systolic functions, of blocking soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) during chronic kidney disease (CKD) induced by 5/6 nephrectomy (Nx) in mice. These beneficial effects may be mediated by the prevention of endothelial dysfunction, independent from kidney preservation and antihypertensor effect. Thus, inhibition of sEH holds a therapeutic potential in preventing type 4 cardiorenal syndrome.
