Renal effects of PPARα-agonists

Department of Nephrology Pitie Salpetriere Hospital, Paris, France

Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor α (PPARα) is a member of the large nuclear receptor superfamily. Its main role is to activate genes involved in fatty acid oxidation in the liver, heart, kidney and skeletal muscle. While they are mainly used as hypolipidemic agents, PPARα agonists may also be postulated to exhibit renoprotective effects. This review summarizes current knowledge regarding the effects of PPARα agonists on the kidney.
