To substitute text enclosed between asterisks in a fetch request, you could use regular expressions along with the replace() method.

Here's an example where we will replace all occurrences of text enclosed between two asterisks in a JSON response with "REPLACED":

  .then(response => response.json())
  .then(data => {
    // use a regular expression to match text enclosed between asterisks
    const regex = /\*([^*]+)\*/g;
    // replace all occurrences of matched text with 'REPLACED'
    const replacedData = JSON.stringify(data).replace(regex, 'REPLACED');
    // do something with the replaced data
  .catch(error => console.error(error));

In this example, we first make a fetch request to a JSON API, then use response.json() to convert the response to a JSON object. We define a regular expression that matches text enclosed between asterisks, and use the replace() method along with the regular expression to substitute all occurrences of the matched text with "REPLACED". Finally, we log the replaced data to the console.
