The present invention relates to a pharmaceutical composition containing a G protein coupled receptor 119 (GPR119) ligand as an active ingredient for preventing or treating non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. More particularly, it was confirmed that the GPR119 ligand, which has been developed as only an anti-diabetic drug, exhibits superior effects on the treatment of non-alcoholic fatty liver and the signal pathways in hepatocytes therefor differ from the signal pathways in the small intestine and the pancreas exhibiting anti-diabetic effects, whereby the GPR119 ligand can be useful to treat non-alcoholic fatty liver.

The present invention relates to a method and kit of detecting a target material using an aptamer, and more particularly to a method and kit for detecting a target material, in which a sample and a second aptamer are added to a first aptamer immobilized on a solid phase so as to form a bond sandwiched between the first aptamer, the target material and the second aptamer, to an FET sensor-based method and kit for detecting a target material, and to an AAO sensor-based method and kit for detecting a target material. The inventive method for a target material using an aptamer can detect even low-molecular-weight materials which were difficult to detect in the prior art, thereby enabling detection of disease-related metabolites, environmental pollutants and food toxins in solutions. In addition, the detection method of the present invention is a direct and simple method and is highly cost-effective, because it uses the aptamer which can be consistently reproduced and can be produced at low costs. Thus, the present invention is very useful.
