Disinfection of upper gastrointestinal fibreoptic endoscopy equipment: an evaluation of a cetrimide chlorhexidine solution and glutaraldehyde. (1/239)

There is little information available on the bacteriological contamination of upper gastrointestinal fibreoptic endoscopes during routine use and the effects of 'disinfecting solutions'. A bacteriological evaluation was therefore made of cleaning an endoscope and its ancillary equipment with (1) water, (2) an aqueous solution of 1% cetrimide with 0.1% chlorhexidine, and (3) activated aqueous 2% glutaraldehyde. All equipment, but particularly the endoscope itself, was found to be heavily contaminated after use with a wide variety of organisms of which 53% were Gram positive. Cleaning the endoscope and ancillary equipment with water and the cetrimide/chlorhexidine solution alone or in combination was inadequate to produce disinfection but immersion in glutaraldehyde for two minutes consistently produced sterile cultures with our sampling technique. A rapid and simple method for disinfection of endoscopic equipment is therefore recommended and we think this is especially suitable for busy endoscopy units.  (+info)

Spermine and arcaine block and permeate N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor channels. (2/239)

Polyamines such as spermine are thought to be endogenous regulators of NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate)-type glutamate receptors. Polyamine block of NMDA receptors was studied in excised outside-out patches from rat hippocampal neurons and Xenopus oocytes expressing recombinant receptors. Extracellular spermine and arcaine reduced NMDA single-channel conductance in a voltage-dependent manner, with partial relief of block evident at large inside negative membrane potentials. Reducing extracellular Na+ concentration increased the apparent affinities for spermine and arcaine, indicating strong interaction between spermine and permeant ions. Internal spermine also blocked NMDA channels in a voltage-dependent manner, with relief of block evident at large inside positive potentials. The Woodhull model of channel block by an impermeant ion adequately described the actions of external spermine from -60 to +60 mV, but failed for more negative potentials. Eyring rate theory for a permeable blocker with two barriers and one binding site adequately described the voltage-dependent block and relief from block by both external and internal spermine over the range of -120 to +60 mV. These findings indicate that polyamines block and permeate neuronal NMDA receptor channels from the extracellular and intracellular sides, although sensitivity to internal spermine is probably too low to be physiologically relevant.  (+info)

Human retina contains polyamine sensitive [3H]-ifenprodil binding sites: implications for neuroprotection? (3/239)

AIMS: This study characterised the pharmacology of [3H]-ifenprodil binding to the polyamine binding sites (PBS) on the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor channel complex on human retinas. These data were correlated with the known neuroprotective effects of ifenprodil and eliprodil. METHODS: Specific binding of [3H]-ifenprodil (under sigma site blockade) was investigated using human retinal homogenates and radioligand binding techniques. Scatchard and competition analyses were utilised to define the pharmacology of the [3H]-ifenprodil binding sites. RESULTS: Specific binding of [3H]-ifenprodil comprised 73% (SEM 3%) of total and reflected interaction with two affinity sites (Kds = 0.39 and 4.3 microM) of different densities (Bmax = 14.4 and 105 pmol/mg protein) (n = 5). The rank order of affinity of compounds competing for [3H]-ifenprodil binding to the high affinity PBS was: ifenprodil > eliprodil > arcaine > spermine > diaminodecane > spermidine > putrescine >> MK-801 (n = 3-7). However, [3H]-ifenprodil binding was minimally inhibited by glutamate, NMDA, and kainate. CONCLUSION: These studies have shown, for the first time, the presence of specific [3H]-ifenprodil binding sites in the human retina with pharmacological characteristics of PBS associated with the NMDA receptor ionophore complex. The neuroprotective effects of eliprodil and ifenprodil may, in part, be mediated via these [3H]-ifenprodil labelled sites.  (+info)

Modulation of afferent-evoked neurotransmission by 5-HT3 receptors in young rat dorsal horn neurones in vitro: a putative mechanism of 5-HT3 induced anti-nociception. (4/239)

1. The in vitro hemisected spinal cord from young rat was used to investigate the mechanism of serotoninergic modulation of primary afferent-mediated synaptic transmission in the dorsal horn through activation of the 5-HT3 receptor. 2. Dorsal root-evoked excitatory post-synaptic potentials (DR-EPSPs) were recorded intracellularly from dorsal horn neurones. Extracellular recordings of the population primary afferent depolarization (PAD) and the dorsal root-evoked dorsal root reflex (DR-DRR) were made from segmental dorsal roots. 3. 5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) and the selective 5-HT3 receptor agonist 1-(m-chloro-phenyl)-biguanide hydrochloride (m-ChPB) (10 and 50 microM) induced statistically significant reductions of the DR-EPSP amplitude (P<0.001) and duration (P<0.001) in the majority of dorsal horn neurones. The 5-HT3 receptor selective antagonists 3-Tropanyl-indole-3-carboxylate hydrochloride (Tropisetron, 10 microM) and N-(1-Azabicyclo[2.2.2]oct-3-yl)-6-chloro-4-methyl-3-oxo-3,4-dihydro-2H-1 ,4-benzoxazine-8-carboxamide (Y-25130, 10 microM) abolished m-ChPB-induced DR-EPSP attenuation and partially blocked the 5-HT effect. 4. m-ChPB (50 microM)-induced DR-EPSP amplitude and duration attenuation was retained in the presence of the GABA(A) receptor antagonist bicuculline (30 microM), the GABA(B) receptor antagonist saclofen (50 microM) and the opioid receptor antagonist naloxone (50 microM). 5. Both 5-HT and m-ChPB (10 and 50 microM) induced a PAD but the mean peak amplitude of 5-HT-induced PAD was significantly greater than PAD to m-ChPB (98.6+/-12 microV compared to 51.8+/-10 V for 50 microM of agonist, respectively). Tropisetron partially reduced 5-HT-induced PAD and abolished m-ChPB-induced PAD. 5-HT, but not m-ChPB, significantly (P<0.001) reduced the peak amplitude of the DR-DRR and this action of 5-HT was unaffected by Tropisetron or Y-25130. 6. These data provide experimental evidence for a putative cellular mechanism at the level of the dorsal horn for anti-nociceptive effects of 5-HT3 receptor activation. This 5-HT3-mediated modulation of sensory afferent transmission was evidently independent of inhibitory GABA- or opioid-dependent interneuronal pathways. The extent to which the 5-HT3 receptor could be involved in the operation of endogenous analgesia and sensory modulation by descending monoamine bulbo-spinal pathways is discussed.  (+info)

Effects of various serotonin agonists, antagonists, and uptake inhibitors on the discriminative stimulus effects of methamphetamine in rats. (5/239)

Neurochemical studies indicate that methamphetamine increases central serotonin (5-HT) levels more markedly than other psychomotor stimulants such as amphetamine or cocaine. In the present study, we investigated 5-HT involvement in the discriminative stimulus effects of methamphetamine. In Sprague-Dawley rats trained to discriminate 1.0 mg/kg methamphetamine i.p. from saline under a fixed-ratio schedule of food presentation, the effects of selected 5-HT agonists, antagonists, and uptake inhibitors were tested. Fluoxetine (1.8-18.0 mg/kg) and clomipramine (3.0-18.0 mg/kg), selective serotonin uptake inhibitors, did not produce any methamphetamine-like discriminative stimulus effects when administered alone, but fluoxetine (5.6 mg/kg), unlike clomipramine (5.6 mg/kg), significantly shifted the methamphetamine dose-response curve to the left. Both 8-hydroxy-2-dipropylaminotetralin (0.03-0.56 mg/kg), a full agonist, and buspirone (1.0-10.0 mg/kg), a partial agonist at 5-HT(1A) receptors, partially generalized to the training dose of methamphetamine but only at high doses that decreased response rate. This generalization was antagonized by the coadministration of the 5-HT(1A) antagonist WAY-100635 (1.0 mg/kg). WAY-100635 (1.0 mg/kg) also partially reversed the leftward shift of the methamphetamine dose-response curve produced by fluoxetine. (+/-)-1-(2, 5-Dimethoxy-4-iodophenyl)-2-aminopropane (0.3 mg/kg), a 5-HT(2A/2C) agonist, shifted the methamphetamine dose-response curve to the left, and this leftward shift was antagonized by the coadministration of ketanserin (3.0 mg/kg), a 5-HT(2A/2C) antagonist. Ketanserin (3.0 mg/kg) also produced a shift to the right in the methamphetamine dose-response curve and completely reversed the leftward shift in the methamphetamine dose-response curve produced by fluoxetine. In contrast, tropisetron (1.0 mg/kg), a 5-HT(3) antagonist, produced a shift to the left of the methamphetamine dose-response curve, and this effect of tropisetron was antagonized by the coadministration of m-chlorophenyl-biguanide (1.8 mg/kg), a 5-HT(3) agonist. The present data suggest that the 5-HT system plays a modulatory role in the discriminative stimulus effects of methamphetamine. These effects appear to be mediated through 5-HT release and blockade of reuptake and subsequent activation of 5-HT(2A/2C) receptors, with limited involvement of other 5-HT receptor subtypes.  (+info)

The pharmacological and functional characteristics of the serotonin 5-HT(3A) receptor are specifically modified by a 5-HT(3B) receptor subunit. (6/239)

While homomers containing 5-HT(3A) subunits form functional ligand-gated serotonin (5-HT) receptors in heterologous expression systems (Jackson, M. B., and Yakel, J. L. (1995) Annu. Rev. Physiol. 57, 447-468; Lambert, J. J., Peters, J. A., and Hope, A. G. (1995) in Ligand-Voltage-Gated Ion Channels (North, R., ed) pp. 177-211, CRC Press, Inc., Boca Raton, FL), it has been proposed that native receptors may exist as heteromers (Fletcher, S., and Barnes, N. M. (1998) Trends Pharmacol. Sci. 19, 212-215). We report the cloning of a subunit 5-HT(3B) with approximately 44% amino acid identity to 5-HT(3A) that specifically modified 5-HT(3A) receptor kinetics, voltage dependence, and pharmacology. Co-expression of 5-HT(3B) with 5-HT(3A) modified the duration of 5-HT(3) receptor agonist-induced responses, linearized the current-voltage relationship, increased agonist and antagonist affinity, and reduced cooperativity between subunits. Reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction in situ hybridization revealed co-localization of both 5-HT(3B) and 5-HT(3A) in a population of neurons in the amygdala, telencephalon, and entorhinal cortex. Furthermore, 5-HT(3A) and 5-HT(3B) mRNAs were expressed in spleen and intestine. Our data suggest that 5-HT(3B) might contribute to tissue-specific functional changes in 5-HT(3)-mediated signaling and/or modulation.  (+info)

Pulmonary oedema produced by scorpion venom augments a phenyldiguanide-induced reflex response in anaesthetized rats. (7/239)

1. The involvement of pulmonary oedema produced by scorpion venom in augmenting a phenyldiguanide (PDG)-induced reflex response was evaluated in urethane-anaesthetized rats. 2. PDG-induced bradycardiac, hypotensive and apnoeic responses, expressed as time-response area, exhibited similarities before or after venom treatment. Hence, the time-response area of bradycardia was taken as a reflex parameter. Pulmonary oedema was determined by physical evaporation and histological methods. 3. Exposure to Indian red scorpion (Buthus tamulus, BT; i.v.) venom for 30 min increased the pulmonary water content (P < 0.05; Student's t test) and augmented the PDG-induced bradycardiac reflex response by more than 2 times (P < 0.001). The increase of pulmonary water content was maximal with 100 microg kg-1 of venom and the augmentation was maximal with 10 microg kg-1. In a separate series of experiments, the venom (100 microg kg-1)-induced pulmonary oedema was confirmed by histological and physical methods. In this group also, the venom augmented the reflex to the same magnitude. 4. Pulmonary oedema (physical and histological) and augmentation of the bradycardiac reflex response after BT venom (100 microg kg-1; i.v.) were absent in animals pretreated with aprotinin, a kallikrein-kinin inhibitor (6000 KIU; i. v.). 5. Ondansetron (10 microg kg-1; i.v.), a 5-HT3 receptor antagonist, failed to block the venom-induced pulmonary oedema (physical and histological) but blocked the venom-induced augmentation of the reflex. 6. The results of this study indicate that the venom-induced augmentation of the PDG reflex is associated with pulmonary oedema involving kinins utilizing 5-HT3 receptors.  (+info)

The role of tryptophan residues in the 5-Hydroxytryptamine(3) receptor ligand binding domain. (8/239)

Aromatic amino acids are important components of the ligand binding site in the Cys loop family of ligand-gated ion channels. To examine the role of tryptophan residues in the ligand binding domain of the 5-hydroxytryptamine(3) (5-HT(3)) receptor, we used site-directed mutagenesis to change each of the eight N-terminal tryptophan residues in the 5-HT(3A) receptor subunit to tyrosine or serine. The mutants were expressed as homomeric 5-HT(3A) receptors in HEK293 cells and analyzed with radioligand binding, electrophysiology, and immunocytochemistry. Mutation of Trp(90), Trp(183), and Trp(195) to tyrosine resulted in functional receptors, although with increased EC(50) values (2-92-fold) to 5-HT(3) receptor agonists. Changing these residues to serine either ablated function (Trp(90) and Trp(183)) or resulted in a further increase in EC(50) (Trp(195)). Mutation of residue Trp(60) had no effect on ligand binding or receptor function, whereas mutation of Trp(95), Trp(102), Trp(121), and Trp(214) ablated ligand binding and receptor function, and all but one of the receptors containing these mutations were not expressed at the plasma membrane. We propose that Trp(90), Trp(183), and Trp(195) are intimately involved in ligand binding, whereas Trp(95), Trp(102), Trp(121), and Trp(214) have a critical role in receptor structure or assembly.  (+info)

0013]PHMB is a mixture of various biguanide polymers that can include different combinations of terminal groups, e.g., amine, cyanoguanidino, and guanidine. Based only on these three terminal groups, at least six possible biguanide polymers can exist. There can be one biguanide polymer with two terminal amine groups, which we refer to as PHMB-AA, one with two terminal cyanoguanidino groups, which we refer to as PHMB-CGCG, and one with two terminal guanidine groups, which we refer to as and PHMB-GG (see, below).

Aims: This study investigates the effects of biguanides during encystment of Acanthamoeba castellanii. Methods and Results: A non-nutrient encystment system was used to investigate the changes in the levels of sorption (uptake) of three non-cysticidal concentrations (10, 20 and 50 μg ml−1) of chlorhexidine diacetate (CHA) and polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB) as well as their effects on viability and leakage of pentose sugars during the first 36 h of encystment. Trophozoites treated with CHA or PHMB were more sensitive and generally sorbed more of each biocide than cysts. During encystment, the largest increases in resistance developed between 18 and 36 h for both biguanides with the resistance emerging to biguanide concentrations of 10 or 20 μg ml−1 between 18 and 24 h. At 50 μg ml−1 resistance emerged between 24 and 36 h. There was a general decrease in biocide sorption during encystment between 0-24 and 0-21 h for CHA and PHMB, respectively, at a concentration of 50 μg ml−1. The ...
Tinea pedis is a preventable skin disease common in elderly or diabetic patients. Daily foot washing is effective for prevention, but can be difficult for many patients. Additionally, conventional methods cannot eliminate fungi within the stratum corneum, a common site for fungal invasion.

Polyhexamethylene guanidine (PHMG) is a guanidine derivative that is used as a biocidal disinfectant, often in the form of its salt polyhexamethylene guanidine phosphate (PHMG-P). Studies have shown that PHMG in solution has fungicidal as well as bactericidal activity against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. The substance also has detergent, anti-corrosive, and flocculant properties and prevents biofouling. PHMG-P is a white powdered solid, and as all polyguanidine salts, readily soluble in water. Unlike the related polymer polyhexanide (PHMB), PHMG has been described as a relatively new compound with properties, potency, and effects being not yet fully recognized. Preliminary findings indicate that PHMG and its derivatives primarily rely on damaging the cell membrane by inhibiting the activity of cellular dehydrogenases. When PHMG is aerosolized and inhaled, it harms the lungs, causing death of the cells lining the bronchioles and widespread damage to alveoli, along with ...
There are two broad types of insulin sensitizers: the biguanides and the thiazolidinediones, also called peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ agonists.. The biguanides enhance insulin action, stimulating glucose uptake in the liver and in the periphery and also suppressing hepatic glucose output. They only work when insulin is present, do not stimulate insulin secretion or release, and do not cause hypoglycemia. They are used for patients with type 2 diabetes who have residual β-cell function, typically when diet and exercise are insufficient for diabetic control. They are also useful in the insulin resistance syndrome and constitute an increasingly popular treatment for polycystic ovarian syndrome, often inducing ovulation and resulting in pregnancy. Phenformin was the original biguanide but was removed from the market in the 1960s because of reports of fatal lactic acidosis. Metformin (Glucophage) is the only biguanide currently available in the U.S.. Metformin is a relatively small ...

Metformin, an inhibitor of OXPHOS, is widely used for treatment of type II diabetes (T2D). A key site of action in diabetes treatment is liver, where the drug achieves a relatively high concentration following oral administration, leading to inhibition of gluconeogenesis and reduction of the hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinemia of T2D. As high levels of insulin have been associated with poor prognosis of prostate, breast, and colon cancer and as early retrospective pharmaco-epidemiologic studies suggested reduced cancer burden among diabetics treated with metformin relative to other diabetes treatments, the hypothesis that metformin or other biguanides could be useful in cancer prevention or treatment has received considerable attention. However, it is not clear if metformin at conventional anti-diabetic doses administered to non-diabetic subjects has effects of sufficient magnitude on levels of insulin or other candidate mediators to influence cancer biology. Drugs used for androgen deprivation ...
Complex I catalyses electron transfer from NADH to hydrophilic electron acceptors by two distinct mechanisms, both localized uniquely at the flavin site. The NADH:FeCN and NADH:O2 reactions proceed via two sequential steps in which NADH reduces the flavin and dissociates, and then the electron acceptor reacts directly (see Figure 2E, left-hand reaction) [26]; for the NADH:HAR and NADH:paraquat reactions NADH reduces the flavin, but the electron acceptor reacts only if a nucleotide is bound in the reduced flavin site (see Figure 2E, right-hand reaction) [27]. Note that although NADH:O2 oxidoreduction produces superoxide, we detect the H2O2 formed following superoxide dismutation, and thus refer to H2O2 production. Data showing the effects of biguanides on these different reactions are shown in Figure 2. Figure 2(A) shows that metformin stimulates the rates of the two reactions (the NADH:FeCN and NADH:O2 reactions) that rely on oxidation of the nucleotide-free reduced flavin [15,26], but, ...

No it hasnt been banned, and it is probably safe to use. But no company with any sense will carry on using it.. What has happened is that it has been listed on a list of potential carcinogens. This means it is banned unless a committee called the SCCS upholds its use. They have looked at it and concluded that there is insufficient data to reach a conclusion. This leaves it in a bit of a legal limbo, and it might be banned at any minute. So if I were using it Id be switching to something else as quickly as I could.. This is a good example of why you need to know the background to something before making any decisions about it, and why you cant just look stuff up. If you were to read the EU cosmetic regulations youd see that it is listed as being fully legal. There is nothing so misleading as facts.. If you are in the business and thinking of using it in a product you are making I suggest you dont.. If you are wondering whether it is safe to use products you have already bought, Id be happy ...
Glucophage is a slow-release medicine used to treat type 2 diabetes. It is part of the biguanide group of medicines which prevent the liver from producing glucose. Usually, the body holds the correct amount of glucose it needs as the pancreas makes insulin which regulates the glucose. The pancreas constantly monitors glucose levels in the blood. If levels rise the pancreas releases insulin into the blood to counteract this. However, if a person has type 2 diabetes their body cannot correctly process the amount of insulin it produces naturally and too little is produced. There is also a linked condition known as insulin resistance when the body does not respond to insulin correctly. Type 2 diabetes can effect the body in two ways: Short term: dehydration, excessive thirst, feeling very hungry, blurred vision, frequent urination and fatigue. Long term: problems with the heart, stroke, eyes and nerves. There is a risk of developing type 2 diabetes if you: Have a family history of type 2 diabetes ...

Objective: ReNu with MoistureLoc (ReNuML), containing the antimicrobial agent alexidine 0.00045%, was associated with the Fusarium keratitis epidemic of 2004 to 2006. Although a single-point source contamination was ruled out, only Fusarium organisms were reported during the outbreak. This study investigated whether the reported loss of antimicrobial effectiveness toward Fusarium of ReNuML after exposure to heat in high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic containers could also be demonstrated with other common fungal and bacterial agents of keratitis. Methods: A buffered solution of alexidine 0.00045% was incubated in glass and ReNu HDPE plastic containers at room temperature (RT) and 56°C for 4 weeks, serially diluted, and tested for its ability to inhibit the growth of 20 bacterial isolates, 12 non-Fusarium fungal isolates, and 7 Fusarium isolates originally involved in the keratitis epidemic. Results: A statistically significant loss of antimicrobial capability was seen with all fungi, all gram
Multipurpose contact lens solution (MPS)/preservative-associated transient corneal hyperfluorescence has been suggested to represent corneal injury. To determine the validity of this assumption, the molecular-level interactions of common disinfectants in soft contact lens MPS and the corneal epithelium using an in vitro model were assessed.. A liposome-based model of the corneal epithelial surface was developed and used to assess the interactions of polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB), polyquaternium-1 (PQ-1), and fluorescein with membrane components and the effects of PHMB and PQ-1 on membrane integrity. The fluorescence anisotropy (a measure of interactions between molecules) was determined. Liposome integrity was assessed by measuring the liposome melting point temperature.. Free fluorescein did not associate with the liposome (P , 0.4). Both fluorescein-tagged PHMB and PQ-1 associated with liposomes (P , 0.002 and P ,/= 0.01, respectively); however, only PHMB induced free fluorescein ...
Purpose: : To examine further the association between the recent outbreaks of microbial keratitis caused by unusual organisms and the contamination of multipurpose contact lens disinfection solutions (MPS) during use. Methods: : Conidia of representative isolates of the Fuarium solani-F. oxysporum complexes and trophozoites of Acanthamoeba castelanii were inoculated (~104 ml-1) into 1-2 ml of MPS that contained either polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB) or polyquaternium-1 (PQ) as active disinfecting components. Phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) served as a control. These preparations were examined microscopically during drying under a laminar flow hood at ambient temperatures. Results: : The various MPS formed distinct and characteristic concentric bands of precipitates and viscous globules while drying. The distribution of the conidia, trophozoites and amoebic cysts among the distinctive residual- precipitate patterns varied for the different MPS. Cysts were not evident in the initial trophozoite ...

Metformin is the sole member of the biguanide class of medications in the United States. It replaced another biguanide, fenformin, which was removed from the market because of a propensity for lactic acidosis in 1975.3,4 Available in short-acting and sustained-release formulations, it is one of the oldest, and indeed one of the safest, medications used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes.. Metformin exerts its effects primarily by decreasing hepatic glucose output and has a comparatively lesser effect increasing insulin sensitivity. Isotope studies suggest hepatic glucose output is reduced primarily through inhibition of gluconeogenesis, which may be reduced by as much as 75%.4 Patients using metformin also exhibit lower fasting insulin concentrations. Most patients using metformin lose weight, and as much as 88% of weight loss with metformin is loss of body fat mass. In patients with normal renal function and who are otherwise healthy, metformin does not increase plasma lactic acid levels or ...
Pharmacotherapeutic group: Blood Glucose lowering drugs, excl Insulins, Biguanides Metformin hydrochloride is a biguanide with antihyperglycaemic effects, lowering both basal and postprandial plasma glucose. It does not stimulate insulin secretion and therefore does not produce hypoglycaemia. Metformin hydrochloride may act via 3 mechanisms: (1) reduction of hepatic glucose production by inhibiting gluconeogenesis and glycogenolysis (2) in muscle, by increasing insulin sensitivity, improving peripheral glucose uptake and utilization (3) and delay of intestinal glucose absorption. Metformin hydrochloride stimulates intracellular glycogen synthesis by acting on glycogen synthase. Metformin hydrochloride increases the transport capacity of all types of membrane glucose transporters (GLUTs) known to date. In humans, independently of its action on glycaemia, metformin hydrochloride has favourable effects on lipid metabolism. This has been shown at therapeutic doses in controlled, medium-term or ...
Cell. 2016 Dec; 167(7), p1705-1718.e13.. Metformin has utility in cancer prevention and treatment, though the mechanisms for these effects remain elusive. Through genetic screening in C. elegans , we uncover two metformin response elements: the nuclear pore complex (NPC) and acyl-CoA dehydrogenase family member-10 (ACAD10). We demonstrate that biguanides inhibit growth by inhibiting mitochondrial respiratory capacity, which restrains transit of the RagA-RagC GTPase heterodimer through the NPC. Nuclear exclusion renders RagC incapable of gaining the GDP-bound state necessary to stimulate mTORC1. Biguanideinduced inactivation of mTORC1 subsequently inhibits growth through transcriptional induction of ACAD10. This ancient metformin response pathway is conserved from worms to humans. Both restricted nuclear pore transit and upregulation of ACAD10 are required for biguanides to reduce viability in melanoma and pancreatic cancer cells, and to extend C. elegans lifespan. This pathway provides a unified ...

دواء Amophage 500mg Tablets About Metformin Biguanide derivative, Oral anti-diabetic. Mechanism of Action of Metformin It is a biguanide which exerts antidiabetic action. The drug suppresses gluconeogenesis in liver and thus suppresses hepatic glucose output. It enhance insulin mediated glucose disposal in muscle and adipose tissue. It enhance GLUT1 (glucose transporter-1) transport from intracellular site to plasma membrane. It also interferes with respiratory chain in mitochondria and promotes peripheral glucose utilization by increasing anaerobic glycolysis. It inhibits intestinal absorption of glucose, other hexose sugars, amino acids and vitamin B12. It also improves lipid profile in type-2 diabetics. Indications for Metformin Non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (as adjunct to diet and exercise). Typical Dosage for Metformin Adults: Initial dose: 250mg twice or thrice daily with meals. Increase gradually at 2 week intervals, if required to a maximum of 3g daily. Children: Not applicable.
The treatment of hyperglycemia is more than evident. Right now we know of two pharmaceutical methods to showcase hypoglycemic effects:. 1. Engaging in the production of glucose - Metformin, also known as the main medication used in this category. It stops the production of glucose from the muscles and liver.. 2. Increase the insulin intake and produce. This can be done with injection/inhalation, as well as using compounds that trigger and stimulate the produce or insulin secretion. Glipizide or glyburide and sulfonylureas are the main meds that trigger the production of insulin.. The insulins duty is to keep glucose inside the storage disposals of our bodies like the liver, muscles, and adipose.. This newcomer method that reduces glucose levels stimulates therapeutic glucosuria. These sodium inhibitors are considerations for type II diabetes and are very rarely used, mostly because of unforeseen problems.. Metformin and biguanides remain first in line for treatment, however. Biguanides dont ...
The reportedly broad expression of CD85j across different immune cell types suggests an importance for this molecule in the human immune system. Previous reports have shown that this receptor interacts with several HLA class-I molecules, as well as with some viral proteins. We have demonstrated that the subset of CD85j + Natural Killer (NK) cells efficiently controls human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) replication in monocyte-derived dendritic cells (MDDC) in vitro and this led us to hypothesize that the CD85j + NK cell-mediated anti-HIV activity in MDDC is specifically dependent on the interaction between the CD85j receptor and unknown non-HLA class-I ligand(s). In this study, we focused our efforts on the identification of these non-described ligands for CD85j. We found that the CD85j receptor interacts with a calcium-binding proteins of the S100 family; namely, S100A9. We further demonstrated that HIV-1 infection of MDDC induces a modulation of S100A9 expression on surface of the MDDC, which

The driving idea behind the research is knowing that AMPK serves as a sensor for low energy loss in cells and that LKB1-deficient cells lack the ability to activate AMPK and sense energy loss, says David Shackelford, a postdoctoral researcher at Salk who spearheaded the study in Shaws lab and is now an assistant professor at UCLAs David Geffen School of Medicine.. That led Shaw and his team to a class of drugs called biguanides, which lower cellular energy levels by attacking the power stations of the cell, called mitochondria. Metformin and phenformin both inhibit mitochondria; however, phenformin is nearly 50 times as potent as metformin. In the study, the researchers tested phenformin as a chemotherapy agent in genetically-engineered mice lacking LKB1 and which had advanced stage lung tumors. After three weeks of treatment, Shaw and his team saw a modest reduction in tumor burden in the mice.. Continuing the study between Salk and UCLA, Shaw and Shackelford coordinated teams in both ...

A novel tripeptide, Phe-Arg-Arg, was found to exert a potent, insulin-mimetic inhibitory action on lysosomal proteolysis in the Langendorff-perfused rat heart. This tripeptide was synthesized based upon its partial structural analogy to the biguanide anti-hyperglycaemic agent, phenformin (phenylethylbiguanide), which has previously been found to exert a Zn(2+)-dependent inhibitory action on lysosomal proteolysis. Hearts were biosynthetically labelled with [3H]leucine in vitro. The percentage change in subsequent release of [3H]leucine (2 mM non-radioactive leucine) was determined in non-recirculating perfusate. The background Zn2+ content of the perfusate was determined to be 20 nM. Major endogenous Zn2+ buffers were present in molar excess of Zn2+: 0.1 mM citrate, 0.2% BSA, and complete physiological amino acids. Infusion of maximally effective levels of chloroquine (30 microM) or insulin (5 nM) caused a 38% inhibition of total proteolysis, which corresponds to the lysosomal subcomponent. In ...
Metformin is one of the most commonly used drugs in the world and has earned its place as the first medication to prescribe for type 2 diabetes and those with type 1 who have insulin resistance. It is effective, inexpensive and has limited side effects. You can read more about why in this 2013 study. Metformin is in a class of drugs called biguanides. It significantly lowers blood sugar for most people. Studied in human since the 1950s, it has a very strong track record of safety and improved outcomes. Side effects tend to be minimal and temporary, though there is a minority of people who do not tolerate it well. It does not cause weight gain or low blood sugars.

The biguanide metformin, an effective first-line agent for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, has come a long way from the days when the FDA hesitated to approve the drug due to risk for lactic acidosis. Today, metformin, now an inexpensive generic and widely available, has garnered a new reputation as a possible anti-aging wonder pill that influences a host of metabolic and cellular processes
The biguanide metformin lowers glucose by reducing hepatic gluconeogenesis. Metformin also decreases intestinal glucose absorption and enhances sensitivity to insulin.7,10 Similarly to sulfonylureas, metformin monotherapy reduces the A1C by 1% to 2%.9 In overweight patients with type 2 diabetes, metformin therapy has been associated with a decrease in diabetes-related end points (e.g., death from hyperglycemia, fatal or nonfatal myocardial infarction, renal failure) and all-cause mortality as compared to therapy with insulin or sulfonylureas.14 Metformin, along with lifestyle intervention, is currently recommended as initial therapy for the management of type 2 diabetes.9 Although controlled trials have not studied sufficient numbers of older patients with diabetes, clinical use suggests that metformin is an effective agent in this population.. The most common adverse effects of metformin are gastrointestinal discomfort and diarrhea, which can be minimized by slow titration of the dose and ...
Blood glucose level is high in people with diabetes. As glucose remains in the blood rather than entering cells, where it belongs, high blood glucose condition takes place. Insulin must be present and the cell must be hungry for glucose to enable glucose to pass into a cell. The two problems which are faced by people with type 2 diabetes are they do not make reasonably adequate insulin and cells of their bodies do not appear to capture glucose as eagerly as they should.

Background: Metformin is a biguanide, belonging to the oral hypoglycemic agents and is a widely used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Evidence indicate that Metformin inhibits cell proliferation in several human cancers and inhibits the Warburg phenomenon in tumor cells.. Objective: The present study aims to explore the effects of Metformin in hypoxic conditions. Specifically, we focused on pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH), (hypoxia-inducible factor 1α) HIF-1α levels and the oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) cell phenotype. Additionally, we also investigated a theoretical consequence of Metformin treatment.. Methods: PDH levels in patients with OSCC and oral dysplasia were evaluated. Metformin was administered in vitro to test the effect of Metformin under hypoxic conditions. The results were complemented by Bioinformatics analyses.. Results: Low PDH levels were observed in OSCC, and Metformin promotes an increase in PDH levels in hypoxic conditions. Metformin also reduced HIF-1α mRNA and ...

Złamania nadkłykciowe kości ramiennej są najczęstszymi postaciami uszkodzeń stawu łokciowego u dzieci. Znaczne przemieszczenie odłamów złamania może spowodować uraz tkanek miękkich okolicy dołu łokciowego czego konsekwencją może być uszkodzenie tętnicy ramiennej. Staje się to czasami przyczyną braku tętna na tętnicy promieniowej i powstania zespołu zaburzeń ukrwienia dystalnych części kończyny, który wymaga chirurgicznej naprawy. Głównym celem tego artykułu, jest przedstawienie morfologii uszkodzeń tętnicy ramiennej w złamaniach nadkłykciowych kości ramiennej typu III wg Gartlanda u dzieci. Praca opiera się na danych uzyskanych od pacjentów leczonych w Klinice Ortopedii i Rehabilitacji Dziecięcej UM w Lublinie w latach 2012-2016. Przedstawiono morfologię uszkodzeń tętnicy ramiennej oraz sposoby i wyniki podjętego leczenia. ...
