What is it about?
Side effects of some drugs may be useful in certain cases. In this work, we studied the inhibitory effects on Lipases of some medications as: Folic Acid which is taken by pregnant women, Colchicine and Febuxostat which is used as treatment of gout disease. These cases are linked to obesity, where women (BMI ≥ 30) have twice higher odds of having an NTDaffected pregnancy than the normal weight women, and the Gout disease frequently occurs in combination of a Metabolic syndrome. The risk of gout increases with the increase of the mass index. In silico studies were aimed to determine the mechanism of inhibition and different interactions for two enzymes: Candida rugosa lipase and human pancreatic lipase

Why is it important?
These observations support a higher intake of dietary folate, and febuxostat for losing weight to decrease NTD risk and prevent hyperuricemia and recurrent gout attacks
