“We are hijacking the natural food signal in the body to trick it into burning calories and lowering systemic glucose levels. Other farnesoid X receptor-targeted drugs are readily absorbed via the gut into circulation. Fexaramine is a unique class of drugs that are not absorbed into the circulation and therefore only activates its molecular target, the farnesoid X receptor, in the gut,” said senior scientist and coauthor Michael Downes, PhD, of the Gene Expression Laboratory on 16 January 2015 at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California. Downes explained that while Intercept Pharmaceuticals, Inc. currently has a drug that systemically targets farnesoid X receptor in clinical trials for nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), the approach of restricting activation of the farnesoid X receptor to the gut will minimize the side effects seen in that study.
