Methylation-associated silencing of the tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-3 gene suggest a suppressor role in kidney, brain, and other human cancers. (1/1745)

Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-3 (TIMP-3) antagonizes matrix metalloproteinase activity and can suppress tumor growth, angiogenesis, invasion, and metastasis. Loss of TIMP-3 has been related to the acquisition of tumorigenesis. Herein, we show that TIMP-3 is silenced in association with aberrant promoter-region methylation in cell lines derived from human cancers. TIMP-3 expression was restored after 5-aza-2'deoxycytidine-mediated demethylation of the TIMP-3 proximal promoter region. Genomic bisulfite sequencing revealed that TIMP-3 silencing was related to the overall density of methylation and that discrete regions within the TIMP-3 CpG island may be important for the silencing of this gene. Aberrant methylation of TIMP-3 occurred in primary cancers of the kidney, brain, colon, breast, and lung, but not in any of 41 normal tissue samples. The most frequent TIMP-3 methylation was found in renal cancers, which originate in the tissue that normally expresses the highest TIMP-3 levels. This methylation correlated with a lack of detectable TIMP-3 protein in these tumors. Together, these data show that methylation-associated inactivation of TIMP-3 is frequent in many human tumors.  (+info)

Re-expression of endogenous p16ink4a in oral squamous cell carcinoma lines by 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine treatment induces a senescence-like state. (2/1745)

We have previously reported that a set of oral squamous cell carcinoma lines express specifically elevated cdk6 activity. One of the cell lines, SCC4, contains a cdk6 amplification and expresses functional p16ink4a, the other cell lines express undetectable levels of p16ink4a, despite a lack of coding-region mutations. Two of the cell lines, SCC15 and SCC40 have a hypermethylated p16ink4A promoter and a third cell line, SCC9, has a mutation in the p16ink4a promoter. Using the demethylation agent 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine, we showed that the p16ink4a protein was re-expressed after a 5-day treatment with this chemical. One cell line, SCC15 expressed high levels of p16ink4a. In this line, cdk6 activity was decreased after 5-aza-2'deoxycytidine treatment, and the hypophosphorylated, growth suppressive form of the retinoblastoma tumor suppressor protein pRB was detected. Expression of p16ink4a persisted, even after the drug was removed and the cells expressed senescence-associated beta-galactosidase activity. Ectopic expression of p16ink4a with a recombinant retrovirus in this cell line also induced a similar senescence-like phenotype. Hence, it was possible to restore a functional pRB pathway in an oral squamous cell carcinoma line by inducing re-expression of endogenous p16ink4a in response to treatment with a demethylating agent.  (+info)

5-Aza-2'-deoxycytidine is chemopreventive in a 4-(methyl-nitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone-induced primary mouse lung tumor model. (3/1745)

Carcinogenesis is a multistep process in which many alterations in both genetic and epigenetic controls lead to a growth advantage for neoplastic cells. Hypermethylation has been established as the basis of genomic imprinting, but recent studies have also shown that alterations in genomic methylation patterns may contribute to tumorigenesis. The chemical 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine (5-aza-dC) has been used both in vitro and in vivo to inhibit DNA methylation. In this study, we investigated the chemopreventive efficacy of 5-aza-dC in a well-established primary mouse lung tumor model. Five-week-old male (C3H/HeJ x A/J) F1 hybrid mice were treated for 24 consecutive weeks with 5-aza-dC, three times per week i.p. Lung tumors were induced with two consecutive weekly doses of 4-(methyl-nitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone starting 1 week after initial treatment with 5-aza-dC. We demonstrated that 5-aza-dC exhibits a chemopreventive effect in this primary mouse lung tumor model which, like human lung adenocarcinomas, harbors an activating K-ras mutation. Treatment with 5-aza-dC resulted in a 23% reduction in tumor incidence, as well as a 42% reduction in tumor multiplicity. This work supports further investigation of methylation inhibitors likes 5-aza-dC for early intervention, prevention and treatment of lung cancer.  (+info)

5-azacytidine induces transgene silencing by DNA methylation in Chinese hamster cells. (4/1745)

The cytosine analog 5-azacytidine (5-AzaC) is a demethylating agent that is also known to induce mutagenesis in mammalian cells. In this study, the mutagenic potential of this drug was tested in the G10 and G12 transgenic Chinese hamster cell lines, which have a single bacterial gpt gene integrated into the genome at different sites, with its expression driven by a simian virus 40 (SV40) promoter. We show that the mutation frequencies following a 48-h exposure to different concentrations of 5-AzaC were 10 to 20 times higher than those of any of the other numerous mutagens that have been tested in the G10-G12 system. Moreover, the mutation frequencies were much higher in the G10 cell line than in the G12 cells. Detailed molecular analysis of the 6-thioguanine (6-TG)-resistant variants demonstrated that transgene silencing by de novo DNA methylation and increased chromatin condensation in the SV40 promoter was the major factor responsible for this high level of 6-TG resistance. As would be expected, exposure to 5-AzaC lowered the overall genomic DNA methylation levels, but it unexpectedly caused hypermethylation and increased chromatin condensation of the transgene in both the G10 and G12 cell lines. These results provide the first evidence that 5-AzaC may also induce transgene-specific DNA methylation, a phenomenon that can further be used for the elucidation of the mechanism that controls silencing of foreign DNA.  (+info)

Methylation of CpG in a small region of the hMLH1 promoter invariably correlates with the absence of gene expression. (5/1745)

Microsatellite instability (MSI) has been described in tumors from patients with hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer, sporadic colorectal cancer, and other types of cancers. MSI is caused by the dysfunction of mismatch repairs genes. Loss of expression and mutation in one of the major mismatch repair genes, hMLH1, and the methylation of CpG sites in its promoter occur frequently in primary tumors and cell lines of colorectal cancer with MSI. To understand the mechanisms involved in the silencing of hMLH1 expression by methylation, we examined the methylation status of all CpG sites in the hMLH1 promoter in 24 colorectal cancer cell lines by the NaHSO3-sequencing method. We identified a small proximal region (-248 to -178, relative to the transcription start site) in the promoter in which the methylation status invariably correlates with the lack of hMLH1 expression. This correlation was further supported by the observation that cell lines that showed methylation-suppressed hMLH1 expression can be induced to reexpress hMLH1 by a methyl transferase inhibitor, 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine, and the small region that we identified exhibited significant demethylation in all cell lines examined.  (+info)

A role for methylation of the hMLH1 promoter in loss of hMLH1 expression and drug resistance in ovarian cancer. (6/1745)

Experimental evidence from several sources has identified a link between mismatch repair deficiency and cytotoxic drug resistance. Selection for cisplatin resistance in the human ovarian cancer cell line A2780, results in loss of expression of the mismatch repair protein hMLH1 in most (90%) of the resultant cisplatin-resistant cell lines. Here we demonstrate that the cisplatin sensitive parental cell line displays methylation of the promoter of only one hMLH1 allele, but that the resistant cell lines all exhibit hyper-methylation of the promoters of both hMLH1 alleles. Full methylation of all sites tested was found to be invariably associated with loss of hMLH1 expression, whereas a partial increase in methylation appears compatible with either loss or maintenance of expression. In addition treatment of two of the resistant cell lines with 5-azacytidine, a known inhibitor of methylation, results in re-expression of hMLH1. Clonogenic assays demonstrate that the 5-azacytidine treated cells show increased sensitivity to cisplatin. Furthermore, 12.5% (3/ 24) of ovarian tumours show hypermethylation of the hMLH1 promoter. Expression of hMLH1 is absent in the tumours that are hypermethylated, while all the unmethylated tumours still express the protein. This analysis suggests that methylation of the hMLH1 promoter may be a common mechanism for loss of hMLH1 expression, and possibly for cisplatin-resistance, in ovarian cancer.  (+info)

Hypermethylation of the DAP-kinase CpG island is a common alteration in B-cell malignancies. (7/1745)

Death-associated protein kinase (DAP-Kinase) is a novel serine/threonine kinase whose expression is required for gamma interferon-induced apoptosis. A previous study suggested that DAP-Kinase expression may be lost epigenetically in cancer cell lines, because treatment of several nonexpressing cell lines with 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine resulted in the expression of DAP-Kinase. Using methylation-specific polymerase chain reaction (MSP), we examined the DAP-Kinase CpG island for hypermethylation in cancer. Normal lymphocytes and lymphoblastoid cell lines are unmethylated in the 5' CpG island of DAP-Kinase. However, in primary tumor samples, all Burkitt's lymphomas and 84% of the B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphomas were hypermethylated in the DAP-Kinase CpG island. In contrast, none of the T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma samples and 15% or less of leukemia samples examined had hypermethylated DAP-Kinase alleles. U937, an unmethylated, DAP-Kinase-expressing leukemia cell line, was treated with gamma interferon and underwent apoptosis; however, Raji, a fully methylated, DAP-Kinase nonexpressing Burkitt's lymphoma cell line, only did so when treated with 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine followed by gamma interferon. Our findings in cell lines and primary tumors suggest that hypermethylation of the DAP-Kinase gene and loss of gamma interferon-mediated apoptosis may be important in the development of B-cell malignancies and may provide a promising biomarker for B-cell-lineage lymphomas.  (+info)

Characterization of the GAGE genes that are expressed in various human cancers and in normal testis. (8/1745)

The GAGE-1 gene was identified previously as a gene that codes for an antigenic peptide, YRPRPRRY, which was presented on a human melanoma by HLA-Cw6 molecules and recognized by a clone of CTLs derived from the patient bearing the tumor. By screening a cDNA library from this melanoma, we identified five additional, closely related genes named GAGE-2-6. We report here that further screening of this library led to the identification of two more genes, GAGE-7B and -8. GAGE-1, -2, and -8 code for peptide YRPRPRRY. Using another antitumor CTL clone isolated from the same melanoma patient, we identified antigenic peptide, YYWPRPRRY, which is encoded by GAGE-3, -4, -5, -6, and -7B and which is presented by HLA-A29 molecules. Genomic cloning of GAGE-7B showed that it is composed of five exons. Sequence alignment showed that an additional exon, which is present only in the mRNA of GAGE-1, has been disrupted in gene GAGE-7B by the insertion of a long interspersed repeated element retroposon. These GAGE genes are located in the p11.2-p11.4 region of chromosome X. They are not expressed in normal tissues, except in testis, but a large proportion of tumors of various histological origins express at least one of these genes. Treatment of normal and tumor cultured cells with a demethylating agent, azadeoxycytidine, resulted in the transcriptional activation of GAGE genes, suggesting that their expression in tumors results from a demethylation process.  (+info)

In this research study, the study drug SL-401 will be combined with the standard dose of azacitidine (for MDS patients) or azacitidine/venetoclax (for AML patients). The goal of this research study is to try and determine the safest, highest dose of study drug, SL-401, in combination with azacitidine or azacitidine/venetoclax that can be given to patients with AML or high-risk MDS. SL-401 works by stopping or slowing the growth of cancer stem cells, which are ...
Currently patients with resectable (can be removed by surgery) esophageal cancer will receive chemotherapy before surgery to try to shrink the tumor before it is removed. This study will evaluate whether giving azacitidine before each cycle of chemotherapy to increase the shrinkage of the tumor prior to surgery is safe.. Azacitidine is currently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). Azacitidine is not approved by the FDA for use in this study and is therefore considered investigational. Because azacitidine has not been given before in combination with epirubicin, oxaliplatin and capecitabine, we will also evaluate the safety and tolerability of azacitidine and find out what dose of azacitidine is safe to give with this chemotherapy. ...

Treatment with the demethylating agent 5-Azacytidine leads to prolonged survival for patients with myelodysplastic syndrome, and the demethylation induces upregulation of cancer-testis antigens. Cancer-testis antigens are well-known targets for immune recognition in cancer, and the immune system may have a role in this treatment regimen. We show here that 5-Azacytidine treatment leads to increased T-cell recognition of tumor cells. T-cell responses against a large panel of cancer-testis antigens were detected before treatment, and these responses were further induced upon initiation of treatment. These characteristics point to an ideal combination of 5-Azacytidine and immune therapy to preferentially boost T-cell responses against cancer-testis antigens. To initiate such combination therapy, essential knowledge is required about the general immune modulatory effect of 5-Azacytidine. We therefore examined potential treatment effects on both immune stimulatory (CD8 and CD4 T cells and Natural ...
SGI-110, is a novel second generation DNA hypomethylating agent, which shows promising single agent activity in leukaemia patients (NCT01261312) and is currently under investigation as a priming agent in solid tumors. There is evidence that the acquisition of platinum resistance in ovarian cancer is associated with DNA methylation changes that result in epigenetic silencing of specific genes. Pre-clinical studies suggest that DNA hypomethylating agents can reverse such resistance. SGI-110 is currently in a Phase II clinical trial in combination with carboplatin, in platinum-resistant recurrent ovarian cancer patients (NCT01696032). SGI-110 is a dinucleotide of decitabine and deoxyguanosine, which is resistant to modification by cytidine deaminase: a common pathway of decitabine metabolism and deactivation.. We demonstrated that SGI-110 conferred global LINE1 de-methylation and re-expression of epigenetically silenced genes in a panel of ovarian cancer cell lines. We identified three cell lines, ...
Growing evidence indicates that aberrant DNA hypermethylation is associated with leukemogenesis, chemotherapy resistance, and relapse. DNA methyltransferase inhibitors such as azacitidine and decitabine have been shown to reverse drug resistance and prime leukemia cells to cytotoxic agents in vitro. Here we report the first pediatric phase 1 study using azacitidine in sequence with chemotherapy in patients with relapsed/refractory leukemia. Fourteen patients were enrolled, twelve with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and two with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). All patients received azacitidine 75mg/m2/day subcutaneously for 5 days, followed by fludarabine 30mg/m2/day and cytarabine 2gm/m2/day intravenously for 5 days. The median number of prior regimens was 2 (range 1-5). Toxicities were typical of intensive chemotherapy. Febrile neutropenia and infection were the most common non-hematologic toxicities. No patients experienced dose-limiting toxicity. Seven of twelve AML patients achieved ...
Azacitidine For with NDC 69097-805 is a a human prescription drug product labeled by Cipla Usa Inc.. The generic name of Azacitidine For is azacitidine.
Histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors either alone or in combination with hypomethylating agents have limited clinical effect in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Previously, we demonstrated that AML patients with higher miR (microRNA)-29b expression had better response to the hypomethylating agent decitabine. Therefore, an increase in miR-29b expression preceding decitabine treatment may provide a therapeutic advantage. We previously showed that miR-29b expression is suppressed by a repressor complex that includes HDACs. Thus, HDAC inhibition may increase miR-29b expression. We hypothesized that priming AML cells with the novel HDAC inhibitor (HDACI) AR-42 would result in increased response to decitabine treatment via upregulation of miR-29b. Here, we show that AR-42 is a potent HDACI in AML, increasing miR-29b levels and leading to downregulation of known miR-29b targets (that is, SP1, DNMT1, DNMT3A and DNMT3B). We then demonstrated that the sequential administration of AR-42 followed by decitabine

The cytidine analogues 5-azacytidine and decitabine have a powerful molecular epigenetic effect: depletion of DNA-methyltransferase. This is an S-phase, DNA-replication dependent action, so treatment exposure time is likely a crucial determinant of efficacy, and genetic factors that influence cytidine analogue metabolism could potentially affect treatment outcomes. The ubiquitously expressed enzyme cytidine deaminase (CDA) rapidly inactivates 5-azacytidine/decitabine. Mahfouz and colleagues evaluated here for the first time the impact of pharmacogenetic factors that affect CDA enzyme activity/expression on 5-azacytidine/decitabine treatment outcomes. Interestingly and significantly, they found that gender had a substantially greater influence on CDA enzyme activity/expression than the well-known CDA SNP A79C, with a corresponding impact on overall survival in 5-azacytidine/decitabine-treated MDS patients. The identification of this pharmacogenetic factor and the mechanism by which it affects ...
Patients whose lymphomas recur after initial chemotherapy are treated with a combination of approaches, including high-dose chemotherapy followed by a stem cell transplant. However, some patients have tumors that do not respond to these extensive second treatments, and many of these patients die within two years of diagnosis.. "When lymphomas are formed, they shut down the cellular programs that sense that something is wrong in the cells. Once these fail-safe mechanisms that trigger cell death are shut down, it becomes difficult to kill the tumor with chemotherapy," said Leandro Cerchietti, M.D., assistant professor at the Hematology and Oncology Division of Weill Cornell Medical College in New York. "Our study showed that using low concentrations of the DNA methyltransferase inhibitors decitabine or azacitidine, these fail-safe mechanisms can slowly be awakened to induce lymphoma cell death when chemotherapy is administered.". Cerchietti and colleagues conducted a phase I trial in patients with ...

5-Azacytidine is a well-established nucleoside analog for the treatment of MDS and AML. These diseases are characterized by an overproliferation of poorly differentiated myeloid progenitor cells (Griffiths and Gore, 2013). Clinical resistance to 5-azacytidine is common, with more than half of all MDS/AML patients not responding to 5-azacytidine treatment, which ultimately leads to poor treatment outcome (Issa, 2007). An understanding of the resistance mechanisms to 5-azacytidine is hampered by the incomplete knowledge of the mode of action of this drug. Although the central cellular effects of 5-azacytidine are cytotoxicity as well as DNA and RNA demethylation (Rius and Lyko, 2012), the determinants that cause the chemoresistance to 5-azacytidine are unknown.. The expression of transporters has been closely linked to drug resistance, and therefore they represent important candidate biomarkers during chemotherapy (Gillet and Gottesman, 2010; Shaffer et al., 2012). Efflux transporters such as ...
It is very important that your doctor check your progress at regular visits to make sure that this medicine is working properly. Blood tests will be needed to check for unwanted effects. Your unborn baby could be harmed if you use this medicine while you are pregnant. Women receiving azacitidine injection should use an effective form of birth control to keep from getting pregnant There is also a potential for this medicine to cause birth defects if the father is using it when his sexual partner becomes pregnant. If a pregnancy occurs while you are receiving this medicine, tell your doctor right away. ...
118 medications are known to interact with azacitidine. Includes Aredia (pamidronate), Ativan (lorazepam), Co-trimoxazole (sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim).
Pregnant Wistar rats were injected i.p. with 5-azacytidine (5AzC) at 11 day of gestation. Brain cell apoptosis determined morphologically or by TUNEL method was observed in the fetuses 3 hrs after injection. Eight to 100% of the fetuses were dead at 1 to7 day after injection. Injection with doses less than 5 mg/kg of 5AzC killed only a few fetuses, though neuronal apoptosis was detected in most of living fetuses. All fetuses were dead when their dams were injected with 5AzC at 9 or 10 day of gestation, whereas most of the fetuses were alive when injected after day 12. The present study revealed that 5AzC specifically induce neuronal apoptosis in rat fetuses at the stage of logarithmic growth.. ...
A key characteristic of cancer cells is the presence of genome alterations, including changes in epigenetic modifications that can profoundly impact gene expression and cellular function. Regulators of DNA methylation and histone modification can thus be considered as potential therapeutic targets in oncology. In recent years, DNA methyltransferase inhibitors and histone deacetylase inhibitors have shown efficacy in treating some hematological malignancies. Intense efforts are underway to develop the next generation of inhibitors, including targeting additional epigenetic regulators, and further to test treatment of solid tumors. The reviews in this series explore advances in cancer epigenetics driven by high-throughput sequencing studies, the clinical use of DNA methyltransferase inhibitors, the development of inhibitors targeting histone modifying enzymes, biomarkers of drug efficacy, and aging-related changes in the epigenome. In his overview, series editor Peter Jones highlights ongoing ...

DNA methyltransferases (DNMTs) are epigenetic enzymes involved in embryonic development, cell differentiation, epithelial to mesenchymal transition, and control of gene expression, whose overexpression or enhanced catalytic activity has been widely reported in cancer initiation and progression. To date, two DNMT inhibitors (DNMTi), 5-azacytidine (5-AZA) and 5-aza-2′-deoxycytidine (DAC), are approved for the treatment of myelodysplastic syndromes and acute myeloid leukemia. Nevertheless, they are chemically instable and quite toxic for healthy cells; thus, the discovery of novel DNMTi is urgent. Here, we report the identification of a new quinoline-based molecule, MC3353, as a non-nucleoside inhibitor and downregulator of DNMT. This compound was able, in promoter demethylating assays, to induce enhanced green fluorescence protein (EGFP) gene expression in HCT116 cells and transcription in a cytomegalovirus (CMV) promoter-driven luciferase reporter system in KG-1 cells. Moreover, MC3353 displayed a
The goal of this clinical research study is to find the highest tolerable dose of ABT-348 that can be given alone or with Vidaza (azacitidine) to patients with either leukemia or MDS. The safety of this drug or drug combination will also be studied. ABT-348 is designed to block proteins that cause cancer cells to grow and multiply. ABT-348 is also designed to block the formation of new blood vessels for the tumor. This may cause the cancer cells to die. This is the first study using ABT-348 in humans. Azacitidine is designed to block certain proteins in cancer cells whose job is to stop the function of the tumor-fighting proteins. By blocking these proteins, the tumor-fighting genes may be able to work better.
5-Aza-2′-deoxycytidine (5-AZA-CdR, decitabine, Dacogen®) and 5-azacytidine (5-AC, Vidaza®) are epigenetic agents that have been approved for the clinical treatment of the hematological malignancy myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and are currently under clinical evaluation for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Most investigators currently classify 5-AZA-CdR and 5-AC as inhibitors of DNA methylation, which can reactivate tumor suppressor genes silenced by this epigenetic event. Examination of the pharmacology of these analogues reveals important differences with respect to their molecular mechanism of action. The action of 5-AZA-CdR is due to its incorporation into DNA. 5-AC is a riboside analogue that is incorporated primarily into RNA. A small fraction of 5-AC is converted to its deoxyribose form by ribonucleotide reductase and subsequently incorporated into DNA. The incorporation of 5-AC into RNA can interfere with the biological function of RNA and result in an inhibition protein

So another question was - can we identify people upfront, early on, before the six months, and can we do something for them?". A small-scale investigator-driven clinical trial was opened in Australia in 2008 that recruited people with high-risk MDS and CMML, from NSW and the ACT, who were given compassionate access to azacitidine.. Bone marrow samples were collected before treatment started, with additional biopsies taken regularly during the six months the trial participants received azacitidine. By the end of the trial, in 2011, bone marrow samples had been collected from 21 patients - half with MDS and half with CMML.. "Our discoveries wouldnt have been possible without the support of these patients and their contributions will help future patients," said Dr Unnikrishnan.. "From the samples, we isolated the haematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) as we believe MDS and CMML arises from problems with the HSPCs.. "Using a new technology, called high-throughput sequencing, we could look ...

During the early phases (phases 1 and 2), researchers assess safety, side effects, optimal dosages and risks/benefits. In the later phase (phase 3), researchers study whether the treatment works better than the current standard therapy. They also compare the safety of the new treatment with that of current treatments. Phase 3 trials include large numbers of people to make sure that the result is valid. There are also less common very early (phase 0) and later (phase 4) phases. Phase 0 trials are small trials that help researchers decide if a new agent should be tested in a phase 1 trial. Phase 4 trials look at long-term safety and effectiveness, after a new treatment has been approved and is on the market. ...
Author Summary Epigenetic changes, which include chemical modifications to the DNA and changes in the proteins that package DNA to fit into a cell, play an important role in gene expression regulation. The fact that a number of abnormal epigenetic changes that lead to the silencing of genes occur during tumorigenesis has prompted the design of epigenetic therapies. The ultimate goal of these therapies is to reverse the aberrant epigenetic modifications observed in cancer cells, thereby restoring cells to a
It took five years and collaborations with universities in Canada and Italy to translate laboratory findings to human cancer treatment. The clinical trial, and majority of cell and animal experiments, was conducted at Weill Cornell Medical College. "This was truly a bench-to-bedside and back team effort, as being able to link the direct effects of azacitidine on primary tumor tissue from patients receiving the drug has allowed us to advance the epigenetic priming treatment strategy in a very precise fashion," says Dr. John Leonard, associate dean for clinical research, the Richard T. Silver Distinguished Professor of Hematology and Medical Oncology and professor of medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College, and director of the Joint Clinical Trials Office at Weill Cornell Medical College and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. The researchers studied azacitidine because of growing evidence that most cancers resist the killing powers of chemotherapy because of an inability to turn on cell death ...

Molecular profiling of AML is now affecting treatment decisions in AML. Genetic analysis of samples from E1900 showed that the more intensive 90-mg/m2 dose of daunorubicin in induction chemotherapy was associated with improved survival in patients with DNMT3A, NPM1 mutations, or MLL translocations. The favorable impact of IDH1/NPM1 mutations in CN-AML, if confirmed, might obviate aggressive consolidation and stem cell transplantation in these patients. Conversely, patients with FLT3 mutations have a poor prognosis and may need antikinase therapy added to typical regimens. Other agents, such as MEK/ERK and AKT axis inhibitors, are well tolerated and display modest efficacy but may yet find a place in AML treatment in combination with chemotherapy. Hypomethylating agents have been empirically used in hypoproliferative AML with moderate success, in some cases prolonging survival in the absence of achieving a complete remission. Whether specific anomalies in DNA methylation patterns of mutations in ...

We used extensive sequencing of cDNA libraries to identify 9 paternally expressed and 34 maternally expressed imprinted genes in A. thaliana endosperm that are regulated by the DNA-demethylating glycosylase DEMETER, the DNA methyltransferase MET1, and/or the core Polycomb group protein FIE. These genes encode transcription factors, proteins involved in hormone signaling, components of the ubiquitin protein degradation pathway, regulators of histone and DNA methylation, and small RNA pathway proteins. We also identified maternally expressed genes that may be regulated by unknown mechanisms or deposited from maternal tissues. We did not detect any imprinted genes in the embryo. Our results show that imprinted gene expression is an extensive mechanistically complex phenomenon that likely affects multiple aspects of seed development. ...

Azacitidine is the first agent to significantly prolong overall survival (OS) compared with conventional care regimens in patients with higher-risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). Here, we review currently available data on azacitidine treatment in lower-risk MDS. In a phase III study, a subset of patients with lower-risk MDS treated with azacitidine achieved an overall response rate (ORR) of 60% and a longer median OS compared with supportive care (44 vs 27 months). In a phase II study investigating various azacitidine dose schedules, the
The proportion of attributable deaths varied according to a patients MDS risk status. The proportion of deaths attributable to MDS increased from 31.5% among low-risk patients to 48.8% in the intermediate-risk category and 74.1% of patients with high-risk MDS. CAD/stroke as the cause of death decreased from a high of 26.3% of patients with low-risk disease to 20.6% of patients with intermediate risk-MDS to 9.3% of patients with high-risk MDS.. Treatment of Myelodysplastic Syndrome. Lower-risk myelodysplastic syndrome patients are treated initially for the specific complications of the disease, such as anemia and low blood counts. If more aggressive therapy is needed, strategies that are considered standard of care include chemotherapy using hypomethylating agents (5-azacitidine and decitabine) and lenalidomide.. Higher-risk myelodysplastic syndrome patients usually need more aggressive therapy, but much depends on the age and condition of the patient. Younger patients with high-risk disease are ...
Compared with World Health Organization-defined acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) not otherwise specified, patients with AML with myelodysplasia-related changes (AML-MRC) are generally older and more likely to have poor-risk cytogenetics, leading to poor response and prognosis. More than one-half of all older (≥65 years) patients in the phase 3 AZA-AML-001 trial had newly diagnosed AML-MRC. We compared clinical outcomes for patients with AML-MRC treated with azacitidine or conventional care regimens (CCR; induction chemotherapy, low-dose cytarabine, or supportive care only) overall and within patient subgroups defined by cytogenetic risk (intermediate or poor) and age (65-74 years or ≥75 years). The same analyses were used to compare azacitidine with low-dose cytarabine in patients who had been preselected to low-dose cytarabine before they were randomized to receive azacitidine or CCR (ie, low-dose cytarabine). Median overall survival was significantly prolonged with azacitidine (n = 129) versus CCR (n
Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a heterogeneous group of clonal hematopoietic stem cell disorders that have a substantial impact on patients quality of life, in addition to causing significant morbidity and mortality. The hypomethylating agents (HMAs) azacitidine and decitabine are approved for use in the United States and in Europe for the treatment of MDS or acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and, in the case of azacitidine, prolong survival in higher-risk patients.
The spin-trap free radical scavenger N-tert-butyl-a-phenylnitron (PBN) ameliorated effects of several teratogens involving reactive oxygen species (ROS). We investigated for the first time whether PBN could ameliorate teratogenesis induced by a DNA hypomethylating hematological therapeutic 5-azacytidine (5azaC). At days 12 and 13 of gestation, Fisher rat dams were pretreated by an i.v. injection of PBN (40mg/kg) and 1 h later by an i.p. injection of 5azaC (5mg/kg). Development was analyzed at gestation day 15 in embryos and day 20 in fetuses. PBN alone did not significantly affect development. PBN pretreatment restored survival of 5azaC-treated dams embryos to the control level, restored weight of embryos and partially of fetuses, and partially restored crownrump lengths. PBN pretreatment converted limb adactyly to less severe oligodactyly. PBN pretreatment restored global DNA methylation level in the limb buds to the control level. Cell proliferation in limb buds of all 5azaCtreated dams ...
Azacytidine is an inhibitor of DNA methyltransferase and is known to be an anti-leukemic agent to induce cancer cell apoptosis. In the present study, multiple myeloma cells were treated with azacytidine at clinically relevant concentrations to induce necrosis through oxidative stress. Necrotic myeloma cells exhibit unique characteristics, including enrichment of the cell-bound albumin and overexpression of endoplasmic reticulum (ER)- and mitochondrial-specific chaperones, which were not observed in other necrotic cells, including HUH-7, A2780, A549, and Hoc1a. Proteomic analysis shows that HSP60 is the most abundant up-regulated mitochondrial specific chaperone, and azacytidine-induced overexpression of HSP60 is confirmed by western blot analysis. In contrast, expression levels of cytosolic chaperones such as HSP90 and HSP71 were down-regulated in azacytidine-treated myeloma cells, concomitant with an increase of these chaperones in the cell culture medium, suggesting that mitochondrial chaperones and
Aberrant DNA methylation is a common feature of cancer, which has been targeted for pharmacologic intervention because of its reversible nature. Nucleoside analogs such as 5-azacytidine, 5-aza-2-deoxycytidine, and zebularine are mechanism-based inhibitors of DNA methylation that are incorporated into the DNA during replication and deplete the DNA methyltransferase enzymes. 5-Azacytidine and 5-aza-2-deoxycytidine are extremely potent inhibitors and may be ideal for use in chemotherapy of cancer. Delivery of these inhibitors has been facilitated with the use of short oligonucleotides that prevent enzymatic degradation. On the other hand, zebularine, a more stable and less toxic surrogate of the other two compounds may be best utilized as a chemopreventive agent. Chronic oral administration of zebularine in a murine colon cancer model highlighted its low toxicity and gender- and tissue-specific action against DNA methylation ...

During the past decade, intense effort has been focused on the development of specific FXS treatments that might lead to eventual cure. Two possible approaches are presently being considered for a substantial treatment of FXS: (a) reactivation of the affected gene and (b) compensating for the lack of FMRP.. Epigenetic modulators. The strategy of restoring FMR1 gene activity, which is based on the presence of the intact FMR1 coding sequence, targets potentially reversible epigenetic changes, primarily DNA methylation. The first compound tested on cells derived from patients with FXS was the drug 5-aza-deoxycytidine (5-azadC, a methyltransferase inhibitor; Figure 3A), which restored transcription and translation of the FMR1 gene (95). Furthermore, treatment with histone deacetylase inhibitors (TSA, butyrate, and 4-phenylbutyrate) potentiated the effect of 5-azadC (96). Reactivation was accompanied not only by DNA demethylation but also by changes in the epigenetic code of histones H3 and H4 (97). ...
Bae et al. [6] suggest that three dimensional (3D) culture system could promote the osteogenic and adipogenic differentiation potential of bone-marrow derived mouse MSCs, and additional treatment of azacitidine (AZA), a DNA methyltransferase inhibitor, could further enhance the osteogenic differentiation ability. However, other progenitor properties, including proliferation and colony-forming efficiency were not significantly affected by either treatment compared to conventionally cultured MSCs.. Bone-marrow derived MSCs reside within a complex environment in which MSCs are subjected to various mechanical stimuli of the bone and also environmental stimuli from interacting cell types. However, classic two dimensional (2D) cultures lack these mechanical stimuli and vital cues by hematopoietic cells and nonadherent population of mesenchymal progenitors. Therefore, to preserve MSC progenitor potency, studies have focused on expansion techniques to recreate an elaborate bone marrow niche through 3D ...
IWG) criteria. With a median duration of follow-up of 10.8 months, the median duration of response was 8.4 months and the median duration of CR was 7.3 months. Seventeen (52%) evaluable MDS patients discontinued therapy to pursue stem cell transplant. Median overall survival (OS) for all enrolled patients (n=55) was 10.8 months. Median OS in responding patients versus non-responders was 13.7 vs. 3.9 months. Adverse events, regardless of causality, were mostly grade 1/2. Grade 3+ adverse events occurring in ≥20% of patients were limited to cytopenias and infection, consistent with underlying hematopoietic malignancies, and no exacerbation of the expected AZA-related safety profile has been observed..

The integrin α6β4 is upregulated in pancreatic carcinoma and signaling from this integrin promotes metastatic properties, including cancer cell invasion. We have previously shown that the integrin α6β4 promotes such properties by dramatically altering the transcriptome toward an invasive phenotype. Furthermore, we have found that transcriptome alterations can be accomplished through targeted DNA demethylation of specific promoters, as we have shown with the pro-metastatic gene S100A4. In this study, we find that signaling from the integrin α6β4 dramatically upregulates expression of amphiregulin (Areg) and epiregulin (Ereg), ligands for the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), and that these ligands promote pancreatic carcinoma invasion. To determine if Areg and Ereg are regulated by DNA methylation, pancreatic cancer cells with low expression of the integrin α6β4 were treated with the DNA methyltransferase inhibitor 5-aza-2-deoxycytidine (DAC), which resulted in stable over ...

The bone marrow microenvironment influences malignant hematopoiesis, but how it promotes leukemogenesis has not been elucidated. In addition, the role of the bone marrow stroma in regulating clinical responses to DNA methyltransferase inhibitors (DNMTi) is also poorly understood. In this study, we conducted a DNA methylome analysis of bone marrow-derived stromal cells from myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients and observed widespread aberrant cytosine hypermethylation occurring preferentially outside CpG islands. Stroma derived from 5-azacytidine-treated patients lacked aberrant methylation and DNMTi treatment of primary MDS stroma enhanced its ability to support erythroid differentiation. An integrative expression analysis revealed that the WNT pathway antagonist FRZB was aberrantly hypermethylated and underexpressed in MDS stroma. This result was confirmed in an independent set of sorted, primary MDS-derived mesenchymal cells. We documented a WNT/β-catenin activation signature in CD34+ cells from

Decitabine is a deoxycytidine analog that is incorporated into DNA, inhibiting DNA methyltransferase (DNMT1/3A/3B) activity. This demethylating agent is clinically used to treat myelodysplastic syndromes. Decitabines inhibition of DNA methyltransferase may be modulated by PKC. Decitabine exhibits anticancer chemotherapeutic, immunomodulatory, and neurotoxic activities. In cellular models of acute myelogenous leukemia (ALL), decitabine demethylation prevents cancer cell inactivation of TRAIL signaling, increasing apoptosis and cell death. In vivo, decitabine stimulates increases in cancer testis antigen-specific cytotoxic (CD8+) T cell activity. In dopaminergic neurons, this compound induces apoptosis and upregulation of tyrosine hydroxylase and α-synuclein, suggesting complications for use in subjects with Parkinsons disease. Decitabine also inhibits replication of HIV in cellular models without displaying cytotoxicity. Additionally, this compound shows benefit in the treatment of sickle-cell ...

The cytocidal activity of arabinosyl-5-azacytosine (araAC) and its effect on the synthesis and methylation of DNA in the human colon carcinoma cell line HT-29 was examined and compared with three other cytidine analogues. Treatment for 2 hr with 10(-6)M arabinosylcytosine (araC), araAC, 5-azacytidine (AZC), or 2-deoxy-5-azacytidine (dAZC) produced a 7-30% reduction in cell viability. Prolongation of drug exposure to 24 hr significantly enhanced the cytotoxicity of all analogues, and particularly dAZC. AZC and dAZC were potent inhibitors of DNA methylation in the absence of inhibition of DNA synthesis, whereas araC and araAC primarily affected DNA synthesis. RNA synthesis was not affected by any of the analogues. dAZC and AZC were incorporated into DNA to a greater extent than were araC or araAC upon short- and long-term drug exposure, whereas only AZC was incorporated into RNA. These data indicate that araAC appears to behave more as an analogue of araC rather than of dAZC or AZC, wherein it ...
This is superb news for cancer patients with rarer cancers. We are extremely pleased with NICEs decision especially as people with myelodyplastic syndrome, chronic myelomonocytic leukaemia, and acute myeloid leukaemia have often been faced with limited treatment options.. When the Governments £200 million fund comes into effect this April it is estimated that an extra 8,000 cancer patients a year could receive cancer treatments, which could improve quality and length of life. But more cancer patients must get the clinically effective drugs their doctors recommend, regardless of their type of cancer or where they live. Tragically and frustratingly this isnt always happening at present.. To ensure all cancer patients get better access to treatments, we want the £200 million Cancer Drugs Fund to prioritise drugs for rarer cancers. It is also important that cancer patients are supported to make informed decisions about their drug treatment options and that funding decisions are well monitored ...
Our present results establish for the first time that MTI-induced apoptosis and 15-LOX-1 expression are linked mechanistically in colorectal cancer cells. The demethylating agents 5-Azadc, 5-azacytidine, and zebularine can induce 15-LOX-1 expression, indicating that methylation may play a role in 15-LOX-1 regulation. 5-Azadc induced 15-LOX-1 expression in a dose- and time-dependent manner and induced growth arrest and apoptosis in Caco-2 colon cancer cells. Inhibiting 15-LOX-1 with caffeic acid (at the 2.2 μmol/L concentration shown to be specific for 15-LOX-1 inhibition) or siRNA attenuated 5-Azadc-induced growth inhibition and apoptosis, indicating a direct relationship between 15-LOX-1 and these biological effects. These findings identify a molecular mechanism by which MTIs induce apoptosis and other cellular effects and further elucidate the role of 15-LOX-1 in human colorectal carcinogenesis. Our findings are consistent with results of other studies, which showed a 15-LOX-1-apoptosis link ...
Through his focus on research-driven patient care, Dr. Kantarjian has helped vastly improve survival and quality of life for leukemia patients everywhere. This award is recognition of his deep impact in the field," Thomas Buchholz, MD, MD Anderson Executive Vice President and Physician-in-Chief, said in a news release.. Kantarjians work has focused on developing several therapies including: clofarabine for acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), the hypomethylating agent decitabine for myelodysplastic syndromes, liposomal vincristine for ALL, and ruxolitinib for myelofibrosis. He has also helped develop several targeted therapies for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) including imatinib, dasatinib, nilotinib, ponatinib, bosutinib, and omacetaxine. He is currently developing monoclonal antibodies in adult ALL..

Here, we establish that the degree and long-term stability of tumor suppressor gene reactivation induced by 5-azaCdR are locus specific and correlate with the ability to attain and maintain Pol II promoter occupancy. Detailed analysis of the TMS1/ASC locus showed that transient exposure to 5-azaCdR induces DNA demethylation, depletion of H3K9me2, and the reacquisition of H3ac and H3K4me2. This allows for the reengagement of Pol II on the TMS1 promoter and gene reactivation. Using a single-molecule approach, we show that these acquired active marks (H3ac, H3K4me2, and Pol II) preferentially associate with demethylated alleles, whereas H3K9me2 was selectively enriched on those alleles that remain methylated. H4K20me3, a mark typically associated with heterochromatin, was unaffected by 5-azaCdR treatment and was retained on both unmethylated and methylated alleles. After 3 months in the absence of drug, a subpopulation of unmethylated alleles persists and remains associated with the active marks ...
Roche medicines passed important regulatory milestones in recent months, including the following key achievements: In December 2018, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Tecentriq in combination with Avastin, paclitaxel and carboplatin for the initial treatment of people with metastatic non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with no EGFR or ALK genomic tumour aberrations.. The FDA granted accelerated approval to Venclexta in combination with azacitidine or decitabine, or low dose cytarabine, for the treatment of people with newly-diagnosed acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), aged 75 years and older, or for those ineligible for intensive induction chemotherapy due to coexisting medical conditions.4 AML is the most common type of aggressive leukaemia in adults and has the lowest survival rate of all types of leukaemia.. In October, FDA approved Xofluza (baloxavir marboxil) for the treatment of acute, uncomplicated influenza in people aged 12 years and older. Xofluza is a ...

Treatment of CFS patient PBMCs with 5-azacytidine was omitted from Lombardi et al. paper In September 2011, Abbie Smith, a graduate student and virology blogger, (http://scienceblogs.com/erv/) revealed that Dr. Judy Mikovits, the corresponding author of the Lombardi et al. study, presented a figure at a meeting that turned out to be identical to one in the original paper, but with different patient numbers and experimental conditions (John Cohen, ScienceInsider, http://news.sciencemag.org/scienceinsider/2011/10/xmrv-researcher-fired.html). This revelation led the authors to concede that the patient-derived PBMCs in Lombardi et al. had been treated with 5-azacytidine, an agent used to demethylate DNA and induce transcription from latent genes and proviruses, but did not include this treatment in the paper because "it was not germane." The omission of such critical information from the paper cast further doubt on the validity of the entire study. ...

Pgreater thanThis prospective Phase II study is the first to assess the feasibility and efficacy of maintenance 5-azacytidine for older patients with high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), chronic myelomonocytic leukaemia and MDS-acute myeloid leukaemia syndromes in complete remission (CR) after induction chemotherapy. Sixty patients were enrolled and treated by standard induction chemotherapy. Patients that reached CR started maintenance therapy with subcutaneous azacytidine, 5/28 d until relapse. Promoter-methylation status of CDKN2B (P15 ink4b), CDH1 and HIC1 was examined pre-induction, in CR and 6, 12 and 24 months post CR. Twenty-four (40%) patients achieved CR after induction chemotherapy and 23 started maintenance treatment with azacytidine. Median CR duration was 13 center dot 5 months, greater than 24 months in 17% of the patients, and 18-30 center dot 5 months in the four patients with trisomy 8. CR duration was not associated with CDKN2B methylation status or karyotype. Median ...
