Some PAOPA and PEPA types are polar but neither strongly lipophilic nor strongly hydrophilic and are therefore able to form clear, firm gels with a wide range of organic liquids having midrange polarity.

The researchers found that lipophilic statin users had a significantly lower 10-year HCC risk compared with matched nonusers (8.1 versus 3.3 percent; absolute risk difference [RD], −4.8 percent; adjusted subdistribution hazard ratio [aHR], 0.56; 95 percent confidence interval [CI], 0.41 to 0.79), while hydrophilic statin users did not have a lower risk (8.0 versus 6.8 percent; RD, −1.2 percent; aHR, 0.95; 95 percent CI, 0.86 to 1.08).
But the team said further study was needed to determine if lipophilic statin therapy was a feasible way to prevent HCC.
The objectives of the study were to know: 1) the microalgae winter distribution associated with the production of PST, DA, and lipophilic toxins, 2) the toxic profiles of phytoplankton and on mollusks collected between Boca del Guafo and Elefantes Fjord in the Aysen region, 3) the dinoflagellates resistance cysts distribution in sediments, as evidence of their presence in the study area, and 4) to analyze the results obtained regarding the geographic sector and 2012 seasons (winter versus summer), and comparing with previous three-year winter records.
