This continuation-in-part application claims priority pursuant to 35 U.S.C. §120 to patent application PCT/GB2011/052115, filed Oct. 31, 2011, an international patent application that claims priority to GB 1018289.7, filed Oct. 29, 2010, and claims priority to GB 1113730.4, filed Aug. 10, 2011, GB 1113729.6, filed Aug. 10, 2011, GB 1113728.8, filed Aug. 10, 2011, and GB 1101937.9, filed Feb. 4, 2011, each of which is hereby incorporated by reference in its entirety. Lipids constitute a broad group of naturally occurring hydrophobic or amphiphilic molecules that include fatty acids, glycerolipids, glycerophospholipids, sphingolipids, saccharolipids, and polyketides, sterol lipids and prenol lipids. The main biological functions of lipids include energy storage, as structural components of cell membranes, and as important signaling molecules. Given these fundamental roles, all cells use and rely on lipids. One process used to transport lipids to cells involves apolipoproteins. Apolipoproteins are proteins that bind to lipids to form lipoproteins, which are the vehicles used for transporting the lipids, including triglycerides and cholesterol, through the lymphatic and circulatory systems. The lipid components of lipoproteins are not themselves soluble in water. However, because of their amphipathic properties, apolipoproteins and other amphipathic molecules (such as, e.g., phospholipids) can surround the lipids, creating the lipoprotein particle that is itself water-soluble, and can thus be carried through water-based circulation, i.e. blood and lymph, etc. There five major groups of lipoprotein particles, and the lipoprotein density and type of apolipoproteins it contains determines the fate of the particle and its influence on metabolism. Chylomicrons are the largest lipoprotein particle and these particles carry triglycerides from the intestines to the liver, skeletal muscle, and adipose tissue. Very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) particles are large, triglyceride-rich lipoprotein secreted by the liver that transports triglycerides to adipose tissue and muscle. The third group lipoprotein particles are intermediate-density lipoprotein (IDL) particles, an intermediate between VLDL and low-density lipoprotein (LDL). IDL particles are formed when lipoprotein lipase removes triglycerides from VLDL particles in the capillaries and the return these smaller particles to the circulation. The IDL particles have lost most of their triglyceride, but they retain cholesteryl esters. Some of the IDL particles are rapidly taken up by the liver; others remain in circulation, where they undergo further triglyceride hydrolysis and are converted to LDL. LDL particles carry cholesterol from the liver to cells of the body, where these particles bind to LDL receptors that are subsequently endocytosed in vesicles form via clathrin-coated pits. After the clathrin coat is shed, the vesicles ultimately deliver the LDL to lysosomes where the cholesterol esters are hydrolyzed. The last group of lipoprotein particles is high-density lipoprotein (HDL) particles, which collect cholesterol from the body's tissues and bring it back to the liver. High levels of lipids, e.g., cholesterol, and/or lipoprotein particles, e.g., VLDL, IDL, and/or LDL can have deleterious effects on the cardiovascular system. For example, as a major extracellular carrier of cholesterol, LDL plays important physiologic roles in cellular function and regulation of metabolic pathways. Cells have complex feedback mechanisms that ensure sufficient supply of cholesterol and prevent its excessive accumulation in the blood. However, under pathologic conditions of, e.g., hyperlipidemia, oxidative stress and/or genetic disorders, specific components of LDL become oxidized or otherwise modified, with a consequence that cholesterol transport by such modified LDL is diverted from its physiologic targets and accumulates in the blood. One effect of this accumulation is the high amounts of cholesterol and/or LDL become embedded in the walls of blood vessels, an in so doing invokes an inflammatory response. In response to this inflammation, blood monocytes adhere to the endothelium, transmigrate into the subendothelial space, and differentiate toward macrophages. Macrophages, in turn, engulf the cholesterol deposits and modified LDL by phagocytosis via scavenger receptors, which are distinct from LDL receptors. However, the adaptive mechanisms mediated by macrophages are not sufficient to process the uncontrolled cholesterol and/or LDL deposition seen under pathologic conditions. As a result, the lipid-laden macrophages transform into “foam cells” or “foamy cells” having a M1 phenotype. Both cholesterol/LDL deposition and the attendant foam cell-mediated pro-inflammatory reactions in the blood wall lead to the development of atherosclerotic lesions. Left untreated, this lipid accumulation and pro-inflammatory response result in the progression of the lesions, which eventually leads to a cardiovascular disease. Another effect of high cholesterol/LDL accumulation in the blood is the formation LDL aggregates or LDL agglomerates. Being of high molecular weight, LDL agglomerates initiate an inflammatory response in a manner similar to that invoked by pathogens like viruses or bacteria. The inflammatory response triggers agglomerate uptake by macrophages which converts these cells into foam cells having a M1 phenotype, and the release of inflammation inducing molecules. Once again, left untreated, the lipid accumulation and pro-inflammatory response can result in a cardiovascular disease. Attempts to treat cardiovascular disease by controlling levels of lipids and/or lipoproteins in the blood have met with limited success. For example, although administration of statins reduces cardiovascular risk in some individuals, these therapeutic compounds do not reduce triglyceride levels. Thus, in individuals at cardiovascular risk who exhibit deleteriously high levels of triglycerides, another class of therapeutic compounds called fibrates may be administered. However, although lowering triglyceride and LDL levels, fibrates do not affect the level of HDL, the lipoprotein particle known to be protective against cardiovascular disease. Lastly, combination treatments involving statins and fibrates, while effective, cause a significant increase to the risk of myopathy and rhabdomyolysis, and therefore can only be carried out under very close medical supervision. In view of these problems, there is, therefore, clearly a need for improved compounds and compositions for the use and treatment of cardiovascular diseases, including those associated with high lipid and/or lipoprotein levels. The present specification discloses pharmaceutical compositions and methods for treating an individual suffering from a cardiovascular disease. The pharmaceutical compositions disclosed herein are essentially a lipid delivery system that enables a therapeutic compound having an activity that modulates lipid and/or lipoprotein levels to be delivered in a manner that more effectively treats a cardiovascular disease.

As used herein, the term “pharmaceutically acceptable” means any molecular entity or composition that does not produce an adverse, allergic or other untoward or unwanted reaction when administered to an individual. As used herein, the term “pharmaceutically acceptable composition” is synonymous with “pharmaceutical composition” and means a therapeutically effective concentration of an active ingredient, such as, e.g., any of the therapeutic compounds disclosed herein. A pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein is useful for medical and veterinary applications. A pharmaceutical composition may be administered to an individual alone, or in combination with other supplementary active ingredients, agents, drugs or hormones. A pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein may optionally include a pharmaceutically-acceptable carrier that facilitates processing of an active ingredient into pharmaceutically-acceptable compositions. As used herein, the term “pharmacologically-acceptable carrier” is synonymous with “pharmacological carrier” and means any carrier that has substantially no long term or permanent detrimental effect when administered and encompasses terms such as “pharmacologically acceptable vehicle, stabilizer, diluent, additive, auxiliary or excipient.” Such a carrier generally is mixed with an active compound or permitted to dilute or enclose the active compound and can be a solid, semi-solid, or liquid agent. It is understood that the active ingredients can be soluble or can be delivered as a suspension in the desired carrier or diluent. Any of a variety of pharmaceutically acceptable carriers can be used including, without limitation, aqueous media such as, e.g., water, saline, glycine, hyaluronic acid and the like; solid carriers such as, e.g., mannitol, lactose, starch, magnesium stearate, sodium saccharin, talcum, cellulose, glucose, sucrose, magnesium carbonate, and the like; solvents; dispersion media; coatings; antibacterial and antifungal agents; isotonic and absorption delaying agents; or any other inactive ingredient. Selection of a pharmacologically acceptable carrier can depend on the mode of administration. Except insofar as any pharmacologically acceptable carrier is incompatible with the active ingredient, its use in pharmaceutically acceptable compositions is contemplated. Non-limiting examples of specific uses of such pharmaceutical carriers can be found in Pharmaceutical Dosage Forms and Drug Delivery Systems (Howard C. Ansel et al., eds., Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Publishers, 7th ed. 1999); REMINGTON: THE SCIENCE AND PRACTICE OF PHARMACY (Alfonso R. Gennaro ed., Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 20th ed. 2000); Goodman & Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics (Joel G. Hardman et al., eds., McGraw-Hill Professional, 10th ed. 2001); and Handbook of Pharmaceutical Excipients (Raymond C. Rowe et al., APhA Publications, 4th edition 2003). These protocols are routine procedures and any modifications are well within the scope of one skilled in the art and from the teaching herein. A pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein can optionally include, without limitation, other pharmaceutically acceptable components (or pharmaceutical components), including, without limitation, buffers, preservatives, tonicity adjusters, salts, antioxidants, osmolality adjusting agents, physiological substances, pharmacological substances, bulking agents, emulsifying agents, wetting agents, sweetening or flavoring agents, and the like. Various buffers and means for adjusting pH can be used to prepare a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein, provided that the resulting preparation is pharmaceutically acceptable. Such buffers include, without limitation, acetate buffers, citrate buffers, phosphate buffers, neutral buffered saline, phosphate buffered saline and borate buffers. It is understood that acids or bases can be used to adjust the pH of a composition as needed. Pharmaceutically acceptable antioxidants include, without limitation, sodium metabisulfite, sodium thiosulfate, acetylcysteine, butylated hydroxyanisole and butylated hydroxytoluene. Useful preservatives include, without limitation, benzalkonium chloride, chlorobutanol, thimerosal, phenylmercuric acetate, phenylmercuric nitrate, a stabilized oxy chloro composition and chelants, such as, e.g., DTPA or DTPA-bisamide, calcium DTPA, and CaNaDTPA-bisamide. Tonicity adjustors useful in a pharmaceutical composition include, without limitation, salts such as, e.g., sodium chloride, potassium chloride, mannitol or glycerin and other pharmaceutically acceptable tonicity adjustor. The pharmaceutical composition may be provided as a salt and can be formed with many acids, including but not limited to, hydrochloric, sulfuric, acetic, lactic, tartaric, malic, succinic, etc. Salts tend to be more soluble in aqueous or other protonic solvents than are the corresponding free base forms. It is understood that these and other substances known in the art of pharmacology can be included in a pharmaceutical composition. In one embodiment, a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein comprises a therapeutic compound having an activity that normalizes lipid levels and a pharmaceutically-acceptable adjuvant. In another embodiment, a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein comprises a therapeutic compound having an activity that normalizes lipid levels, a pharmaceutically-acceptable solvent, and a pharmaceutically-acceptable adjuvant. In aspects of this embodiment, a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein may further comprise a pharmaceutically-acceptable stabilizing agent. In other aspects of this embodiment, a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein may further comprise a pharmaceutically-acceptable carrier, a pharmaceutically-acceptable component, or both pharmaceutically-acceptable carrier and pharmaceutically-acceptable component. Aspects of the present specification disclose, in part, a therapeutic compound. A therapeutic compound is a compound that provides pharmacological activity or other direct effect in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease, or to affect the structure or any function of the body of man or animals. A therapeutic compound disclosed herein may be used in the form of a pharmaceutically acceptable salt, solvate, or solvate of a salt, e.g. the hydrochloride. Additionally, therapeutic compound disclosed herein may be provided as racemates, or as individual enantiomers, including the R- or S-enantiomer. Thus, the therapeutic compound disclosed herein may comprise a R-enantiomer only, a S-enantiomer only, or a combination of both a R-enantiomer and a S-enantiomer of a therapeutic compound. A therapeutic compound disclosed herein may have an activity that normalizes lipid levels. As used herein, the term “normalizes lipid levels” refers to an activity that reduces a level of a lipid or lipoprotein that is deleteriously high to a normal or non-harmful level, increases a level of a lipid or lipoprotein to a level that is beneficial to an individual, or both. For example, a therapeutic compound having an activity that normalizes lipid levels may reduce cholesterol and/or LDL that is deleteriously high to a normal or non-harmful level, increase HDL to a level that is beneficial to an individual, or both. Lipid and lipoprotein abnormalities are common in the general population, and are regarded as a modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease due to their influence on atherosclerosis. Because studies have shown that higher levels of LDL particles promote health problems and cardiovascular disease, they are often informally called the “bad cholesterol” particles. This is in contrast to HDL particles, which are frequently referred to as “good cholesterol” or “healthy cholesterol” particles, because higher HDL levels are correlated with cardiovascular health. High levels of HDL are thought to reduce LDL levels by acting as a sink for excess triglycerides levels in LDL. In an embodiment, a therapeutic compound disclosed herein has an anti-hyperlipidemia activity. In an aspect of this embodiment, a therapeutic compound disclosed herein has anti-hyperlipidemia activity capable of reducing the levels of VLDL, IDL, LDL, or a combination thereof. In other aspects of this embodiment, a therapeutic compound disclosed herein has anti-hyperlipidemia activity capable of reducing the levels of VLDL, IDL, LDL, or a combination thereof by, e.g., at least 10%, at least 15%, at least 20%, at least 25%, at least 30%, at least 35%, at least 40%, at least 45%, at least 50%, at least 55%, at least 60%, at least 65%, at least 70%, at least 75%, at least 80%, at least 85%, at least 90% or at least 95%. In yet other aspects of this embodiment, a therapeutic compound disclosed herein has anti-hyperlipidemia activity capable of reducing the levels of VLDL, IDL, LDL, or a combination thereof in a range from, e.g., about 10% to about 100%, about 20% to about 100%, about 30% to about 100%, about 40% to about 100%, about 50% to about 100%, about 60% to about 100%, about 70% to about 100%, about 80% to about 100%, about 10% to about 90%, about 20% to about 90%, about 30% to about 90%, about 40% to about 90%, about 50% to about 90%, about 60% to about 90%, about 70% to about 90%, about 10% to about 80%, about 20% to about 80%, about 30% to about 80%, about 40% to about 80%, about 50% to about 80%, or about 60% to about 80%, about 10% to about 70%, about 20% to about 70%, about 30% to about 70%, about 40% to about 70%, or about 50% to about 70%. In another embodiment, a therapeutic compound disclosed herein increases the level of HDL. In an aspect of this embodiment, a therapeutic compound disclosed herein increases the level of HDL by, e.g., at least 2%, at least 3%, at least 10%, at least 12%, at least 15%, at least 17%, at least 20%, at least 22%, at least 25%, at least 27%, at least 30%, at least 32%, at least 35%, at least 37%, at least 40%, at least 42%, at least 45% or at least 47%. In yet other aspects of this embodiment, a therapeutic compound disclosed herein increases the level of HDL in a range from, e.g., about 2% to about 100%, about 10% to about 50%, about 15% to about 50%, about 20% to about 50%, about 25% to about 50%, about 30% to about 50%, about 35% to about 50%, about 40% to about 50%, about 2% to about 45%, about 10% to about 45%, about 15% to about 45%, about 20% to about 45%, about 25% to about 45%, about 30% to about 45%, about 35% to about 45%, about 2% to about 40%, about 10% to about 40%, about 15% to about 40%, about 20% to about 40%, about 25% to about 40%, or about 30% to about 40%, about 2% to about 35%, about 10% to about 35%, about 15% to about 35%, about 20% to about 35%, or about 25% to about 35%. When cholesterol and/or lipoproteins like LDL become embedded in the walls of blood vessels, an immune response can be invoked that subsequently results in a chronic inflammatory response. Such chronic inflammation can that eventually can weaken and damage the blood vessels, causing them to burst. Thus, one consequence of modulating the levels of a lipid or lipoprotein is the reduction or elimination of a chronic inflammation. Prostaglandins mediate a local inflammatory response and are involved in all inflammatory functions through action on prostaglandin receptors and mediate inflammatory signaling including chemotaxis (macrophages, neutrophils and eosinophils), vasodilation and algesia. However, the PG-mediated inflammatory response is self-limiting (resolving). The principle resolution factor is a prostaglandin called 15dPGJ2, which is an endogenous agonist of peroxidase proliferator-activator receptor gamma (PPAR-γ) signaling. PPARγ signaling pathway 1) induces apoptosis of Macrophage M1 cells, thereby reducing the levels of Th1 pro-inflammatory cytokines and 2) promotes differentiation of monocytes into Macrophage M2 cells. Macrophage M2 cells produce and release Th2 anti-inflammatory cytokines. In an embodiment, a therapeutic compound disclosed herein has an anti-inflammatory activity capable of reducing the levels of an inflammation inducing prostaglandin. In other aspects of this embodiment, a therapeutic compound disclosed herein has an anti-inflammatory activity capable of reducing the levels of a inflammation inducing prostaglandin released from a sensory neuron by, e.g., at least 10%, at least 15%, at least 20%, at least 25%, at least 30%, at least 35%, at least 40%, at least 45%, at least 50%, at least 55%, at least 60%, at least 65%, at least 70%, at least 75%, at least 80%, at least 85%, at least 90% or at least 95%. In yet other aspects of this embodiment, a therapeutic compound disclosed herein has an anti-inflammatory activity capable of reducing the levels of a inflammation inducing prostaglandin released from a sensory neuron in a range from, e.g., about 10% to about 100%, about 20% to about 100%, about 30% to about 100%, about 40% to about 100%, about 50% to about 100%, about 60% to about 100%, about 70% to about 100%, about 80% to about 100%, about 10% to about 90%, about 20% to about 90%, about 30% to about 90%, about 40% to about 90%, about 50% to about 90%, about 60% to about 90%, about 70% to about 90%, about 10% to about 80%, about 20% to about 80%, about 30% to about 80%, about 40% to about 80%, about 50% to about 80%, or about 60% to about 80%, about 10% to about 70%, about 20% to about 70%, about 30% to about 70%, about 40% to about 70%, or about 50% to about 70%. In another embodiment, a therapeutic compound disclosed herein has an anti-inflammatory activity substantially similar to 15dPGJ2. In aspects of this embodiment, a therapeutic compound disclosed herein an anti-inflammatory activity that is, e.g., at least 5%, at least 15%, at least 25%, at least 50%, at least 55%, at least 60%, at least 65%, at least 70%, at least 75%, at least 80%, at least 85%, at least 90% or at least 95% of the activity observed for 15dPGJ2. In other aspects of this embodiment, a therapeutic compound disclosed herein an anti-inflammatory activity that is in a range from, e.g., about 5% to about 100%, about 50% to about 100%, about 60% to about 100%, about 70% to about 100%, about 80% to about 100%, about 25% to about 90%, about 50% to about 90%, about 60% to about 90%, about 70% to about 90%, about 80% to about 90%, about 25% to about 80%, about 50% to about 80%, about 60% to about 80%, about 70% to about 80%, about 25% to about 70%, about 50% to about 70%, about 25% to about 60%, about 50% to about 60%, or about 25% to about 50% of the activity observed for 15dPGJ2. The peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) are a group of nuclear receptor proteins that function as transcription factors regulating the expression of genes. All PPARs are known to heterodimerize with the retinoid X receptor (RXR) and bind to specific regions on the DNA of target genes called peroxisome proliferator hormone response elements (PPREs). PPARs play essential roles in the regulation of cellular differentiation, development, and metabolism (carbohydrate, lipid, protein), and tumorigenesis of higher organisms. The family comprises three members, PPAR-α, PPAR-γ, and PPAR-δ (also known as PPAR-β). PPAR-α is expressed in liver, kidney, heart, muscle, adipose tissue, as well as other tissues. PPAR-δ is expressed in many tissues but markedly in brain, adipose tissue, and skin. PPAR-γ comprises three alternatively-spliced forms, each with a different expression pattern. PPAR-γ1 is expressed in virtually all tissues, including heart, muscle, colon, kidney, pancreas, and spleen. PPAR-γ2 is expressed mainly in adipose tissue. PPAR-γ3 is expressed in macrophages, large intestine, and white adipose tissue. Endogenous ligands for the PPARs include free fatty acids and eicosanoids. PPAR-γ is activated by PGJ2 (a prostaglandin), whereas PPAR-α is activated by leukotriene B4. The de novo production of HDL particles by the liver is thought to be triggered by activation of the PPAR signaling pathways. So PPAR agonists that are targeted to cell types involved in lipid processing (macrophage, adipocytes and hepatocytes) through the normal lipid absorption mechanism will selectively increase beneficial HDL levels and so normalize blood lipid profiles and treat a cardiovascular disease.

Examples of a suitable nuclear receptor binding agent include, without limitation, a Retinoic Acid Receptor (RAR) binding agent, a Retinoid X Receptor (RXR) binding agent, a Liver X Receptor (LXR) binding agent and a Vitamin D binding agent. A therapeutic compound disclosed herein may be an anti-hyperlipidemic agent. There are several classes of anti-hyperlipidemic agents (also known as hypolipidemic agents). They may differ in both their impact on the cholesterol profile and adverse effects. For example, some may lower LDL, while others may preferentially increase HDL. Clinically, the choice of an agent will depend on the cholesterol profile of an individual, cardiovascular risk of an individual, and/or the liver and kidney functions of an individual. Examples of a suitable anti-hyperlipidemic agent include, without limitation, a fibrate, a statin, a tocotrienol, a niacin, a bile acid sequestrants (resin), a cholesterol absorption inhibitor, a pancreatic lipase inhibitor, and a sympathomimetic amine. A therapeutic compound disclosed herein may be a fibrate. Fibrates are a class of amphipathic carboxylic acids with lipid level modifying properties. These therapeutic compounds are used for a range of metabolic disorders. One non-limiting use is as an anti-hyperlipidemic agent where it may lower levels of, e.g., triglycerides and LDL as well as increase levels of HDL. Examples of a suitable fibrate include, without limitation, Bezafibrate, Ciprofibrate, Clofibrate, Gemfibrozil, and Fenofibrate. A therapeutic compound disclosed herein may be a statin. Statins (or HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors) are a class of therapeutic compounds used to lower LDL and/or cholesterol levels by inhibiting the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, which plays a central role in the production of cholesterol in the liver. To compensate for the decreased cholesterol availability, synthesis of hepatic LDL receptors is increased, resulting in an increased clearance of LDL particles from the blood. Examples of a suitable statin include, without limitation, Atorvastatin, Fluvastatin, Lovastatin, Pitavastatin, Pravastatin, Rosuvastatin, and Simvastatin. A therapeutic compound disclosed herein may be a tocotrienol. Tocotrienols are another class of HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors and may be used to lower LDL and/or cholesterol levels by inducing hepatic LDL receptor up-regulation and/or decreasing plasma LDL levels. Examples of a suitable tocotrienol include, without limitation, a γ-tocotrienol and a δ-tocotrienol. A therapeutic compound disclosed herein may be a niacin. Niacins are a class of therapeutic compounds with lipid level modifying properties. For example, a niacin may lower LDL by selectively inhibiting hepatic diacyglycerol acyltransferase 2, reduce triglyceride synthesis, and VLDL secretion through a receptor HM74 and HM74A or GPR109A. These therapeutic compounds are used for a range of metabolic disorders. One non-limiting use is as an anti-hyperlipidemic agent where it may inhibit the breakdown of fats in adipose tissue. Because a niacin blocks the breakdown of fats, it causes a decrease in free fatty acids in the blood and, as a consequence, decreases the secretion of VLDL and cholesterol by the liver. By lowering VLDL levels, a niacin may also increase the level of HDL in blood. Examples of a suitable niacin include, without limitation, acipimox, niacin, nicotinamide, and vitamin B3. A therapeutic compound disclosed herein may be a bile acid sequestrant. Bile acid sequestrants (also known as resins) are a class of therapeutic compounds used to bind certain components of bile in the gastrointestinal tract. They disrupt the enterohepatic circulation of bile acids by sequestering them and preventing their reabsorption from the gut. Bile acid sequestrants are particularly effective for lowering LDL and cholesterol by sequestering the cholesterol-containing bile acids released into the intestine and preventing their reabsorption from the intestine. In addition, a bile acid sequestrant may also raise HDL levels. Examples of a suitable bile acid sequestrant include, without limitation, Cholestyramine, Colesevelam, and Colestipol. A therapeutic compound disclosed herein may be a cholesterol absorption inhibitor. Cholesterol absorption inhibitors are a class of therapeutic compounds that inhibits the absorption of cholesterol from the intestine. Decreased cholesterol absorption leads to an upregulation of LDL-receptors on the surface of cells and an increased LDL-cholesterol uptake into these cells, thus decreasing levels of LDL in the blood plasma.

In one embodiment, an adjuvant may be a pharmaceutically-acceptable lipid. A lipid may be broadly defined as a hydrophobic or amphiphilic small molecule. The amphiphilic nature of some lipids allows them to form structures such as vesicles, liposomes, or membranes in an aqueous environment. Non-limiting examples, of lipids include fatty acids, glycerolipids (like monoglycerides, diglycerides, and triglycerides), phospholipids, sphingolipids, sterol lipids, prenol lipids, saccharolipids, and polyketides. A pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein may comprise a lipid such as, e.g. an oil, an oil-based liquid, a fat, a fatty acid, a wax, a fatty acid ester, a fatty acid salt, a fatty alcohol, a glyceride (mono-, di- or tri-glyceride), a phospholipids, a glycol ester, a sucrose ester, a glycerol oleate derivative, a medium chain triglyceride, or a mixture thereof. A lipid useful in the pharmaceutical compositions disclosed herein may be a pharmaceutically-acceptable fatty acid. A fatty acid comprises a carboxylic acid with a long unbranched hydrocarbon chain which may be either saturated or unsaturated. Thus arrangement confers a fatty acid with a polar, hydrophilic end, and a nonpolar, hydrophobic end that is insoluble in water. Most naturally occurring fatty acids have a hydrocarbon chain of an even number of carbon atoms, typically between 4 and 24 carbons, and may be attached to functional groups containing oxygen, halogens, nitrogen, and sulfur. Synthetic or non-natural fatty acids may have a hydrocarbon chain of any number of carbon atoms from between 3 and 40 carbons. Where a double bond exists, there is the possibility of either a cis or a trans geometric isomerism, which significantly affects the molecule's molecular configuration. Cis-double bonds cause the fatty acid chain to bend, an effect that is more pronounced the more double bonds there are in a chain. Most naturally occurring fatty acids are of the cis configuration, although the trans form does exist in some natural and partially hydrogenated fats and oils. Examples of fatty acids include, without limitation, Capryllic acid (8:0), pelargonic acid (9:0), Capric acid (10:0), Undecylic acid (11:0), Lauric acid (12:0), Tridecylic acid (13:0), Myristic acid (14:0), Myristoleic acid (14:1), Pentadecyclic acid (15:0), Palmitic acid (16:0), Palmitoleic acid (16:1), Sapienic acid (16:1), Margaric acid (17:0), Stearic acid (18:0), Oleic acid (18:1), Elaidic acid (18:1), Vaccenic acid (18:1), Linoleic acid (18:2), Linoelaidic acid (18:2), α-Linolenic acid (18:3), γ-Linolenic acid (18:3), Stearidonic acid (18:4), Nonadecylic acid (19:0), Arachidic acid (20:0), Eicosenoic acid (20:1), Dihomo-γ-linolenic acid (20:3), Mead acid (20:3), Arachidonic acid (20:4), Eicosapentaenoic acid (20:5), Heneicosylic acid (21:0), Behenic acid (22:0), Erucic acid (22:1), Docosahexaenoic acid (22:6), Tricosylic acid (23:0), Lignoceric acid (24:0), Nervonic acid (24:1), Pentacosylic acid (25:0), Cerotic acid (26:0), Heptacosylic acid (27:0), Montanic acid (28:0), Nonacosylic acid (29:0), Melissic acid (30:0), Henatriacontylic acid (31:0), Lacceroic acid (32:0), Psyllic acid (33:0), Geddic acid (34:0), Ceroplastic acid (35:0), and Hexatriacontylic acid (36:0).

In one embodiment, a pharmaceutically-acceptable stabilizing agent does not comprise a pharmaceutically-acceptable emulsifying agent. In another embodiment, a pharmaceutical composition does not comprise a pharmaceutically-acceptable emulsifying agent. The pharmaceutical compositions disclosed herein act as a delivery system that enable a therapeutic compound disclosed herein to be more effectively delivered or targeted to a cell type, tissue, organ, or region of the body in a manner that more effectively normalizes lipid levels and/or inhibits a pro-inflammatory response. This modulation and/or inhibition results in an improved treatment of a cardiovascular disease. For example, a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein may facilitate the delivery of a therapeutic compound disclosed herein into macrophages. One possible mechanism that achieves this selective biodistribution is that the pharmaceutical compositions disclosed herein may be designed to take advantage of the activity of chylomicrons. Chylomicrons are relatively large lipoprotein particles having a diameter of 75 nm to 1,200 nm. Comprising triglycerides (85-92%), phospholipids (6-12%), cholesterol (1-3%) and apolipoproteins (1-2%), chylomicrons transport dietary lipids from the intestines to other locations in the body. During digestion, fatty acids and cholesterol undergo processing in the gastrointestinal tract by the action of pancreatic juices including lipases and emulsification with bile salts to generate micelles. These micelles allow the absorption of lipid as free fatty acids by the absorptive cells of the small intestine, known as enterocytes. Once in the enterocytes, triglycerides and cholesterol are assembled into nascent chylomicrons. Nascent chylomicrons are primarily composed of triglycerides (85%) and contain some cholesterol and cholesteryl esters. The main apolipoprotein component is apolipoprotein B-48 (APOB48). These nascent chylomicrons are released by exocytosis from enterocytes into lacteals, lymphatic vessels originating in the villi of the small intestine, and are then secreted into the bloodstream at the thoracic duct's connection with the left subclavian vein. While circulating in lymph and blood, chylomicrons exchange components with HDL. The HDL donates apolipoprotein C-II (APOC2) and apolipoprotein E (APOE) to the nascent chylomicron and thus converts it to a mature chylomicron (often referred to simply as “chylomicron”). APOC2 is the cofactor for lipoprotein lipase (LPL) activity. Once triglyceride stores are distributed, the chylomicron returns APOC2 to the HDL (but keeps APOE), and, thus, becomes a chylomicron remnant, now only 30-50 nm. APOB48 and APOE are important to identify the chylomicron remnant in the liver for endocytosis and breakdown into lipoproteins (VLDL, LDL and HDL). These lipoproteins are processed and stored by competent cells, including, e.g., hepatocytes, adipocytes and macrophages. Thus, without wishing to be limited by any theory, upon oral administration of the pharmaceutical compositions disclosed herein are processed into micelles while in the gastrointestinal tract, absorbed by enterocytes and assembled into nascent chylomicrons, remain associated with chylomicron remnants taken up by the liver, and ultimately loaded into macrophages.

EXAMPLES The following non-limiting examples are provided for illustrative purposes only in order to facilitate a more complete understanding of representative embodiments now contemplated. These examples should not be construed to limit any of the embodiments described in the present specification, including those pertaining to the compounds, alcohols, lipids, pharmaceutical compositions, methods of preparing pharmaceutical compositions, or methods or uses of treating a chronic inflammation or disease associated with chronic inflammation. Example 1 Liquid Formulations of Pharmaceutical Composition This example illustrates how to make a pharmaceutical composition as disclosed herein as a liquid formulation. Initially, 2,400 mg of ibuprofen was contacted directly with 2.0 mL of rapeseed oil in an attempt to dissolve a therapeutic compound directly into an adjuvant at a concentration of 1,200 mg/mL. However, ibuprofen remained insoluble in the oil and did not dissolve to substantially measurable degree. Ibuprofen remained insolubility even if the mixture was mixed by vortexing for 20 seconds, the contacting was done at 20° C. or 37° C., and/or the mixture was allowed to incubate for 24 hours at 20° C. or 37° C. The insolubility of ibuprofen in rapeseed oil was surprising given that ibuprofen has a logP value of 3.6; such a high logP value is indicative of a compound that would readily soluble in an adjuvant like oil. Since, it was not possible to dissolve ibuprofen directly into oil, despite its high logP value, it was next tried to dissolve a therapeutic drug in a solvent to first create a solution comprising the compound. As a first step, experiments were conducted to the miscibility of a solvent in an adjuvant like oil in the absence of a therapeutic compound. In these experiments 0.5 mL ethanol was contacted with ten different volumes of rapeseed oil (Table 1). Each mixture was tested at 22° C. and at 37° C. in which the ethanol and oil were initially heated in a water bath before being mixed together. Mixing was attempted by vortex mixing for 20 seconds, and the containers were allowed to settle before visual assessment, either immediately, or after 24 hours. Each mixture was evaluated to determine whether or not the ethanol and rapeseed oil form immiscible layers, or a homogeneous mixture. The results are summarized in Table 1. Mixtures comprising solvent:adjuvant ratios of 1:1, 1:2, 1:3, 1:4, 1:5, and 1:6 formed immiscible layers at either 22° C. or at 37° C., either immediately or after 24 hours of incubation, indicating that the ethanol and oil did not mix well at these ratios. However, in solvent:adjuvant ratios above 1:7 a homogeneous mixture was formed under all conditions tested.

HM, Homogeneous mixture. Once the appropriate ratios of alcohol and lipid necessary to form a homogenous mixture were determined, it was next determined whether contacting a therapeutic compound first in a solvent before contacting with an adjuvant would result in the compound dissolving in the solvents. To conduct these experiments, either 1,000 mg or 1,200 mg of ibuprofen was dissolved into 0.5 mL of ethanol. The resulting alcohol solution was then contacted with rapeseed oil at two different solvent:adjuvant ratios (1:2 and 1:9). Each mixture was tested at 20° C. and at 37° C. in which the ethanol solution and oil were initially heated in a water bath before being mixed together. Mixing was attempted by vortex mixing for 20 seconds, and the containers were allowed to settle before visual assessment, either immediately, or after 24 hours. Each mixture was evaluated to determine whether or not the ethanol solution and rapeseed oil form immiscible layers, or a homogeneous mixture. The results are summarized in Table 2. In contrast to the situation in the absence of a therapeutic compound, when ibuprofen is present in the ethanol, it caused the ethanol and oil to form a homogeneous mixture under all conditions tested in solvent:adjuvant ratios above 1:2. This observation was very surprising because, although not wish to be bound by any theory, it appears that a therapeutic compound may be having some effect on the manner in which an adjuvant and solvent interact with each other, such that a homogeneous mixture is formed in a way that does not occur when the therapeutic compound is absent. In addition, the results indicate that a therapeutic compound can be formulated at clinically useful concentrations.

To prepare a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein using gemfibrozil, the following formulations were examined. In these experiments, 600 mg gemfibrozil was contacted with different volumes of ethanol, as the solvent, warmed to 37° C., and the resulting solution was then contacted with different volumes of linseed oil, as the adjuvant, warmed to 37° C. (Table 3). Each formulation was evaluated to determine whether or not the ethanol and linseed oil form immiscible layers, a clear homogeneous mixture, as well as whether or not the gemfibrozil crystallized out of solution. The results are summarized in Table 3. Like ibuprofen in Example 1 above, gemfibrozil remained insoluble in the oil alone and did not dissolve to substantially measurable degree. The formulation comprising 0.2 mL ethanol was unable to completely dissolve gemfibrozil. In addition, although the formulation comprising 0.3 mL ethanol was capable of dissolving gemfibrozil, the therapeutic compound began to crystallizing out of solution within 3 hours and complete crystallization occurred within 48 hours. All other formulations tested were capable of dissolving gemfibrozil and forming a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein. However, only the formulation comprising 0.5 mL ethanol appeared to for a stable pharmaceutical composition in that gemfibrozil remained completely dissolved after three weeks.

Example 3 Liquid Formulations of Pharmaceutical Composition This example illustrates how to make a pharmaceutical composition as disclosed herein as a liquid formulation. To prepare a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein using ibuprofen, the following formulation was performed. In these experiments, 4 g ibuprofen was contacted with 3.6 mL of ethyl acetate, as the solvent, and the resulting solution was then contacted with 76.4 mL of rapeseed oil, as the adjuvant. The resulting pharmaceutical composition had a solvent:adjuvant ratio of about 1:21. This pharmaceutical composition was then placed in a round bottom flask and subjected to low pressure on a rotary evaporator. The temperature was kept low and evaporation continued to constant weight. The total volume lost was 3.65% of the total weight. The resulting liquid no longer retained the characteristic ethyl acetate odor/taste, indicating that there was a substantial removal of ethyl acetate form the pharmaceutical composition. Example 4 Solid Formulation of Pharmaceutical Composition This example illustrates how to make a pharmaceutical composition as disclosed herein as a solid formulation. Since certain fatty acids are liquid at room temperature, while others are solid, an examination of the different fatty acids was undertaken in an effort to evaluate the potential of each fatty acid in the manufacture of a solid formulation. This understanding would enable the development of a wide array of solid formulation by adjusting the relative ratios of each fatty acid. As an initial experiment, linolenic acid, linoleic acid, palmitic acid and stearic acid were evaluated to assess whether it was possible to prepare a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein that could be formulated using only one of these fatty acids to be a solid or semi-solid at 22° C. (simulating room temperature conditions), but melt into a liquid at 37° C. (simulating internal body temperature conditions after ingestion). Four different test formulations were prepared and evaluated on their ability to form a solid dose formulation at 22° C. and melt into a homogeneous solution at 37° C. without forming a suspension (Table 4). Formulation 1 was prepared by dissolving 200 mg of Ibuprofen into 400 mg of menthol, and the resulting solution was then mixed with 200 mg of stearic acid (T m of about 67-72° C.) and heated at 60° C. for 30 minutes to form a homogeneous solution. Formulation 1 solidified immediately upon cooling to 22° C. Formulation 1 remained a solid even after incubating at 37° C. overnight. Formulation 2 was prepared by dissolving 200 mg of Ibuprofen into 400 mg of menthol, and the resulting solution was then mixed with 200 mg of palmitic acid (T m of about 61-62° C.) and heated at 60° C. for 30 minutes to form a homogeneous solution. Formulation 2 solidified about 1 hour after cooling to 22° C. Incubating at 37° C. overnight cause Formulation 2 to completely melt into a clear homogenous liquid. However, Formulation 2 once again solidified about 1 hour after cooling to 22° C. Formulation 3 was prepared by dissolving 200 mg of Ibuprofen into 400 mg of menthol, and the resulting solution was then mixed with 200 mg of linoleic acid (T m of about −5° C.) and heated at 37° C. for 2 hours to form a homogeneous solution. Formulation 3 remained a liquid, even after cooling to 22° C. for 72 hours. Formulation 4 was prepared by dissolving 200 mg of Ibuprofen into 400 mg of menthol, and the resulting solution was then mixed with 200 mg of linolenic acid (T m of about −11° C.) and heated at 37° C. for 2 hours to form a homogeneous solution. Formulation 4 remained a liquid, even after cooling to 22° C. for 72 hours. TABLE 4 Solid Formulations with Therapeutic Compound Components Temperature Compound Solvent Adjuvant 22° C. 37° C.

For example, a pharmaceutical composition will be formulated to be solid or semi-solid at 22° C., but melt into a proper clear solution (and not a suspension) at 37° C. (Table 5).

Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into seven experimental groups containing five animals each. After fasting overnight, the animals were challenged with one with one of seven different treatments. Group A was a control in which each mouse was orally administered 1% methylcellulose/0.5% polysorbate 80 vehicle only. Group B was a control in which each mouse was orally administered solvent/adjuvant vehicle only (gavage of 10% ethanol and 90% linseed oil). Group C was a control in which each mouse was orally administered 150 mg/kg aspirin. Group D was a control in which each mouse was orally administered 100 mg/kg ibuprofen suspended in 1% methylcellulose/0.5% polysorbate 80. Group E was the experimental group in which each mouse was administered a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein (BC1054-100) comprising 100 mg/kg of ibuprofen, 10% ethanol, and 90% linseed oil. Group F was a control in which each mouse was orally administered 100 mg/kg ibuprofen suspended in 1% methylcellulose/0.5% polysorbate 80. Group G was the experimental group in which each mouse was administered a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein (BC1054-200) comprising 200 mg/kg of ibuprofen, 10% ethanol, and 90% linseed oil. Animals were sacrificed 4 hours after treatment and the stomachs were examined for degree of hemorrhage and severity of mucosal erosive lesions. Gastric irritation was scored as follows: 0, no lesions; 1, hyperemia; 2, one or two slight lesions; 3, more than two slight lesions or severe lesions; and 4, very severe lesions. A score of 50% or more relative to Group C (aspirin-treated control group), which was set to 100%, was considered a positive score for gastric irritation. Results are shown in Table 6. Group D (100 mg/kg of ibuprofen-treated control group) and Group F (200 mg/kg of ibuprofen-treated control group) produced gastric lesions that were 75% and 95%, respectively, severe as those induced by Group C (aspirin-treated control group). However, Group E (BC1054-100-treated experimental group) and Group G (BC1054-200-treated experimental group) produced gastric lesions that were 20% and 40%, respectively, as severe as those associated with Group C (aspirin-treated control group). These results demonstrate that that a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein reduced the extent to which a therapeutic compound may cause mucosal lesions and cause gastric irritation.

On day 3, post-challenge with the virus, the animals received one of three treatments. Group A was a control in which each mouse was orally administered 335.6 μg of ibuprofen dissolved in 10 μL DMSO (no adjuvant). Group B was a control in which each mouse was orally administered solvent/adjuvant vehicle only (gavage of 10% ethanol and 90% linseed oil). Group C was the experimental group in which each mouse was administered a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein (BC1054) comprising 335.6 μg of ibuprofen, 10% ethanol, and 90% linseed oil. A dose of 335.6 μg of ibuprofen in the mouse is equivalent to 20 mg/kg/day, or 1200 mg/day for a human (the maximum standard dose for ibuprofen). Animals were weighed, and monitored for signs of infection daily for up to day 6 when all animals were culled. FIG. 1 clearly shows that oral administration of the solvent/adjuvant vehicle only (Group B) had an 80% mortality rate and that oral administration of ibuprofen only (Group A) exhibited a mortality rate of 60%. However, a single oral administration of BC1054 reduced the mortality rate to only 20%. To determination of levels of IL-10 and IL-4, an ELISA was performed using a 96-well plate coated with a capture antibody for IL-10 or IL-4. Lungs collected from the culled mice were homogenized at 4° C., and the supernatant collected and stored at −70° C. until needed. Thawed samples were vortexed for 30 seconds immediately before adding to the ELISA plate. Serial dilutions were performed within the plate with both the sample and the standards by pipetting 60 μL of assay diluent into each well. The plate was sealed and incubated for 2 hours at room temperature. For IL-4, 60 μL of working detector was added (Detection Antibody+SAv-HRP reagent) to each well. The plate was sealed and incubated for 1 hour at room temperature. For IL-10, 60 μL of detection antibody was diluted in assay diluent to each well. Plates were washed and 60 μL of SAv-HRP enzyme was diluted in assay diluent and added to the plate. The plate was sealed and incubated for 20 minutes at room temperature. Plates were then washed ten times. 60 μL of substrate solution were added to each well and the plate was incubated for 30 minutes at room temperature in the dark. 60 μL of stop solution was added to each well and absorbance was read at 450 nm. IL-10 and IL-4 concentrations were expressed as pg/mg of lung tissue. These results indicate that a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein was effective in treating a respiratory inflammation. Results show that animals from the Group A (ibuprofen-treated control group) and Group B (solvent/adjuvant vehicle-treated control group) controls exhibited 2600 pg/mg and 2000 pg/mg of IL-10, respectively ( FIG. 2A ). However, Group C (BC1054-treated experimental group) revealed an IL-10 concentration of 6000 pg/mg, 3-fold higher than that seen in the control animals. These result also shows that animals from the Group A (ibuprofen-treated control group) and Group B (solvent/adjuvant vehicle-treated control group) controls exhibited 6900 pg/mg and 5400 pg/mg of IL-4, respectively, while Group C (BC1054-treated experimental group) exhibited an IL-4 concentration of 8300 pg/mg ( FIG. 2B ). Taken together, synergistic increase in IL-10 levels and/or the increase in IL-4 levels suggest that at least part of the efficacy observed for BC1054 was by inducing a switch from a Th1 to a Th2 response. Further experiments were done to further determine which cell types were stimulated to release cytokines upon administration of a BC1054. C57BLK/6 female mice (6-7 weeks old) were divided into three experimental groups containing ten animals each. On day 1, animals received an intranasal lethal dose (50 μL total, 25 μL/nostril) of Influenza H1N1 under halothane-induced anaesthesia. On day 3, post-challenge with the virus, the animals received one of three treatments. Group A was a control in which each mouse was orally administered 335.6 μg of ibuprofen dissolved in 10 μL DMSO (no adjuvant). Group B was a control in which each mouse was orally administered solvent/adjuvant vehicle only (gavage of 10% ethanol and 90% linseed oil) (no ibuprofen). Group C was the experimental group in which each mouse was administered a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein (BC1054) comprising 335.6 μg of ibuprofen, 10% ethanol, and 90% linseed oil. Lungs collected from fatally-infected mice were homogenized at 4° C., and the supernatant collected, stored, and IL-10, TNFα and IFNγ levels measured using an ELISA. The results show that Group A (ibuprofen-treated control group) and Group C (BC1054-treated experimental group) animals exhibited an increased IL-10 levels ( FIG. 3A ). However, these IL-10 increases were associated with very different pharmacodynamic effects, and the pattern of pro-inflammatory cytokine reduction highlights the source of the IL-10 and its relevance to the effect on survival. For example, TNFα (which is macrophage-related cytokine) was not as markedly inhibited ( FIG. 3B ) in Group A (ibuprofen-treated control group) animals, whereas the levels of IFNγ (which is a lymphocyte-derived cytokine) were markedly lowered in this group when compared to Group C (BC1054-treated experimental group) animals ( FIG. 3C ). This cytokine release pattern was associated with a poor outcome. However, in Group C (BC1054-treated experimental group) animals, TNFα levels were markedly lowered ( FIG. 3B ), while IFNγ levels were largely unaffected ( FIG. 3C ). This demonstrates that a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein shows a protective effect on the H1N1-induced lethality through, in part, a macrophage-derived IL-10 levels rather than lymphocyte-derived IL10. Example 7 Case Studies for the Treatment of a Cardiovascular Disease A 49 year old male diagnosed with hypercholesterolemia (LDL of 4.35 mmol/L) was placed on a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein (BC1054) comprising 20 mg/kg of ibuprofen, 10% ethanol, and 90% linseed oil (600 mg bid) for 7 days. After 5 days of treatment the patient's LDL levels had normalized to 3.89 mmol/L. The normalization of LDL level persisted for 2 months after cessation of BC1054 dosing, as determined at the last examination. A 60 year old male newly diagnosed with hypercholesterolemia (LDL of 4.31 mmol/L) was given a course of a pharmaceutical composition disclosed herein (BC1054) comprising 20 mg/kg of ibuprofen, 10% ethanol, and 90% linseed oil (1200 mg uid) to lower LDL levels to within the normal range. After 5 days of treatment the patients LDL levels were lowered to 3.36 mmol/L. The patient was followed up for 1 month and his LDL remained within the normal range, despite there being no further BC1054 dosing.
