Bone Morphogenetic Proteins
Bone-growth regulatory factors that are members of the transforming growth factor-beta superfamily of proteins. They are synthesized as large precursor molecules which are cleaved by proteolytic enzymes. The active form can consist of a dimer of two identical proteins or a heterodimer of two related bone morphogenetic proteins.

A depolarizing neuromuscular-blocking agent, that causes persistent nicotinic activation resulting in spastic paralysis of susceptible nematodes. It is a drug of second-choice after benzimidazoles for treatment of ascariasis, hookworm, and pinworm infections, being effective after a single dose. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1992, p920)
Enrichment of peripheral blood CD34+ cells for transplantation using a fully automated immunomagnetic cell selection system and a novel octapeptide releasing agent. (1/37)Positive selection of CD34+ cells is being increasingly performed to support hematological reconstitution following high-dose and dose-intensive chemotherapy and to reduce the non-target cell content of transplants. The present study was designed to evaluate the performance of an immunomagnetic cell selection system, including comparison of enzyme and peptide releasing agents and of semi-automated and fully automated selection systems. A total of 74 immunomagnetic CD34+ cell selection procedures were performed involving 55 subjects, the majority of whom had hematologic malignancies. Median CD34+ cell purity with a newly developed specific octapeptide releasing agent (98.5%; 81.0-99.0%) was significantly higher (P = 0.002) than that with chymopapain (85.8%; 28.1-99.7%). No significant differences were observed between semi-automated and fully automated systems in CD34+ cell purity or yield or time to WBC or platelet recovery. Immunomagnetic selection was found to provide highly purified populations of CD34+ cells in sufficient numbers for use in transplantation procedures. CD34+ cell transplants supported rapid and reliable hematologic reconstitution. Use of a fully automated system markedly reduced the time and labor required for immunomagnetic selection, potentially affording more standardized and reproducible positive selection of CD34+ cells.

Single-blind randomised controlled trial of chemonucleolysis and manipulation in the treatment of symptomatic lumbar disc herniation. (2/37)This single-blind randomised clinical trial compared osteopathic manipulative treatment with chemonucleolysis (used as a control of known efficacy) for symptomatic lumbar disc herniation. Forty patients with sciatica due to this diagnosis (confirmed by imaging) were treated either by chemonucleolysis or manipulation. Outcomes (leg pain, back pain and self-reported disability) were measured at 2 weeks, 6 weeks and 12 months. The mean values for all outcomes improved in both groups. By 12 months, there was no statistically significant difference in outcome between the treatments, but manipulation produced a statistically significant greater improvement for back pain and disability in the first few weeks. A similar number from both groups required additional orthopaedic intervention; there were no serious complications. Crude cost analysis suggested an overall financial advantage from manipulation. Because osteopathic manipulation produced a 12-month outcome that was equivalent to chemonucleolysis, it can be considered as an option for the treatment of symptomatic lumbar disc herniation, at least in the absence of clear indications for surgery. Further study into the value of manipulation at a more acute stage is warranted. (+info)
Intradiscal pressure after intradiscal injection of hypertonic saline: an experimental study. (3/37)Although chemonucleolysis with chymopapain is a long-established treatment for lumbar intervertebral disc herniation, serious complications have been reported. Accordingly, alternative substances for chemonucleolysis have been sought. The main beneficial effect of chemonucleolysis derives from the decrease in intradiscal pressure. Several previous studies have investigated the relationship between physiological saline injection and disc mechanics in cadaveric specimens [2, 5, 16]. However, no previous study has assessed the intradiscal pressure after intradiscal injection of "hypertonic saline" in living animals. The present study compared the changes in intradiscal pressure after intradiscal injection of hypertonic saline with those after chymopapain injection. The lumbar intervertebral discs of 26 living rabbits were examined: 10% hypertonic saline was injected in ten rabbits, and chymopapain (10 pikokatal units) was injected intradiscally in another ten, with the remaining six being used as controls. The intradiscal pressure was measured at 1, 4, and 12 weeks after injection. The intradiscal pressure of the hypertonic saline-injected group at 4 weeks was significantly lower than that of the control group, but by 12 weeks it had recovered. On the other hand, that of the chymopapain-injected group remained significantly lower than that of the control group at 12 weeks. The results of this study found that hypertonic saline injected into the intervertebral discs temporarily decreased the intradiscal pressure. (+info)
Chemonucleolysis: the state of the art. (4/37)This review presents the history of chemonucleolysis, the techniques, indications, contraindications, and complications. Presenting an historical overview and comparison of success rates with surgical discectomy may provide a fresh understanding of the controversy surrounding chemonucleolysis and establish its efficacy in relation to more invasive treatments. A review of the literature from 1973 through 1998 for chemonucleolysis, open discectomy, and microdiscectomy provided published success rates for these procedures, and a mean rate with standard deviation was determined. In the experience and opinion of the authors, chemonucleolysis remains a viable alternative for patients who have exhausted all conservative means of treatment. Proper patient selection leads to success rates comparable to open discectomy and microdiscectomy. (+info)
Insight to structural subsite recognition in plant thiol protease-inhibitor complexes : understanding the basis of differential inhibition and the role of water. (5/37)BACKGROUND: This work represents an extensive MD simulation / water-dynamics studies on a series of complexes of inhibitors (leupeptin, E-64, E-64-C, ZPACK) and plant cysteine proteases (actinidin, caricain, chymopapain, calotropin DI) of papain family to understand the various interactions, water binding mode, factors influencing it and the structural basis of differential inhibition. RESULTS: The tertiary structure of the enzyme-inhibitor complexes were built by visual interactive modeling and energy minimization followed by dynamic simulation of 120 ps in water environment. DASA study with and without the inhibitor revealed the potential subsite residues involved in inhibition. Though the interaction involving main chain atoms are similar, critical inspection of the complexes reveal significant differences in the side chain interactions in S2-P2 and S3-P3 pairs due to sequence differences in the equivalent positions of respective subsites leading to differential inhibition. CONCLUSION: The key finding of the study is a conserved site of a water molecule near oxyanion hole of the enzyme active site, which is found in all the modeled complexes and in most crystal structures of papain family either native or complexed. Conserved water molecules at the ligand binding sites of these homologous proteins suggest the structural importance of the water, which changes the conventional definition of chemical geometry of inhibitor binding domain, its shape and complimentarity. The water mediated recognition of inhibitor to enzyme subsites (Pn.H2O.Sn) of leupeptin acetyl oxygen to caricain, chymopapain and calotropinDI is an additional information and offer valuable insight to potent inhibitor design.

The effect of bone remodeling inhibition by zoledronic acid in an animal model of cartilage matrix damage. (6/37)OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this work was to test the effect of inhibition of bone remodeling, through the use of the bisphosphonate, zoledronic acid, on cartilage matrix damage in an animal model of cartilage matrix damage. DESIGN: New Zealand white rabbits were divided into four groups for treatment purposes: (1) untreated controls; (2) injected into one knee joint with the cartilage matrix degradation enzyme, chymopapain; (3) injected into one knee joint with chymopapain and also given subcutaneous injections of the bisphosphonate, zoledronic acid, three times per week until sacrifice at either day 28 or 56 post-chymopapain-injection; (4) received only the zoledronic acid injections. At sacrifice, the knee joints were examined grossly and histologically, and biochemically for proteoglycan content. Urine samples were analysed, at intervals, for levels of collagen cross-links which are biochemical markers of cartilage and bone. RESULTS: Animals receiving both intraarticular chymopapain injections and subcutaneous zoledronic acid injections displayed a significantly lower degree of grossly and histologically detectable cartilage degeneration on the tibial articular surfaces (the articular surface displaying the greatest degree of degeneration) than did animals only receiving the chymopapain injections. In addition, urinary levels of collagen cross-links for bone and cartilage were significantly higher in those animals only receiving chymopapain injections. CONCLUSION: The bone resorption observed after chymopapain injection into the rabbit knee joint can be inhibited through the use of the bisphosphonate, zoledronic acid. Furthermore, zoledronic acid does not increase the level of cartilage degeneration and appears to provide some level of chondroprotection in this model. (+info)
Effect of oral glucosamine on cartilage and meniscus in normal and chymopapain-injected knees of young rabbits. (7/37)OBJECTIVE: To determine if oral glucosamine (GlcN) improves joint biology after acute damage by a protease. METHODS: The effect of 8 weeks of dietary GlcN (20 or 100 mg/kg/day) on knee joint cartilage was evaluated in 2.2-kg male NZW rabbits with and without damage introduced by intraarticular injection of chymopapain (CP). Cartilage was evaluated histologically and scored according to the Mankin scale. Analyses of total hydroxyproline and glycosaminoglycan (GAG) contents and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) analysis of selected genes were performed. RESULTS: After 8 weeks, there was no effect of GlcN on the GAG content of normal cartilage. Both levels of GlcN treatment significantly increased the sulfated GAG content in the cartilage of the medial femoral condyle in damaged and contralateral knees, but did not change the collagen content. In CP-injected knees, there was still some loss of surface proteoglycan (PG) that was not completely corrected by dietary GlcN. Even after 8 weeks, levels of messenger RNA (mRNA) detected by RT-PCR showed changes indicative of damage and repair, such as elevated type II collagen mRNA, and these levels were not influenced by GlcN treatment. Meniscal GAG content was increased in the contralateral knee of rabbits receiving high-dose GlcN, but was decreased in those receiving no GlcN or low-dose GlcN. Neither diet nor treatment affected the meniscal collagen content. CONCLUSION: These results suggest that oral GlcN treatment might be useful in a situation where GlcN is limiting, such as where there is a rapid replacement of cartilage PG. (+info)
Chemonucleolysis. (8/37)A prospective study of 480 patients who underwent enzymatic dissolution of the nucleus pulposus with chymopapain is reported. Seventy per cent of patients with the clincial criteria for a disc herniation had a favourable response to chemonucleolysis. The commonest cause of failure was persistent back pain. In patients with sequestered discs or lateral recess stenosis surgical intervention was not made more difficult by chemonucleolysis. Those with a previous operation, spinal stenosis or psychogenic components to the disability had very poor results. Complications were few and easily managed. (+info)
Chymopapain A. Purification and investigation by covalent chromatography and characterization by two-protonic-state reactivity...
Chymopapain A was isolated from the dried latex of papaya (Carica papaya) by ion-exchange chromatography followed by covalent chromatography by thiol-disulphide interchange. The latter procedure was used to produce fully active enzyme containing one essential thiol group per molecule of protein, to establish that the chymopapain A molecule contains, in addition, one non-essential thiol group per molecule and to recalculate the literature value of epsilon 280 for the enzyme as 36 000 M−1 × cm −1. The Michaelis parameters for the hydrolysis of L-benzoylarginine p-nitroanilide and of benzyloxy-carbonyl-lysine nitrophenyl ester at 25 degrees C, and I 0.1 at several pH values catalysed by chymopapain A, papaya proteinase omega, papain (EC 188.8.131.52) and actinidin (EC 184.108.40.206) were determined. Towards these substrates chymopapain A has kcat./km values similar to those of actinidin and of papaya proteinase omega and significantly lower than those of papain or ficin. The environment of the ...

Full Endoscopic Spinal Surgery Techniques: Advancements, Indications, and Outcomes | Endoscopes
In the early 1960s, Lyman Smith injected chymopapain into a herniated lumbar disc using what was later to be termed the safe zone by Kambin and thus began the era of minimally invasive spine surgery.29 The first meeting of the International Society for Minimal Intervention of Spine Surgery in April 1990 further defined the term minimally invasive spine surgery against the back drop of the additional advances that had been made in endoscopic spine surgery techniques and approaches.. Endoscopic spinal surgery clinical outcomes have been studied for the past 25 years. These outcomes have included prospective randomized clinical trials evaluating the effectiveness of endoscopic techniques versus open posterior microdiscectomy techniques in the treatment of primary and revision lumbar disc herniations.1,30-34 These trials have revealed equivalency in outcomes amongst the two treatment groups. Recent non-randomized lumbar studies include a single surgeon evaluation of 400 patients using the ...
Antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activity of aqueous extract of Carica papaya | JHP
Introduction: Over centuries, Carica papaya (papaya) has been used as a nutritious and medicinal plant. In view of its medicinal uses, our group focused on aqueous leaves extract of papaya and tried to determine its antimicrobial (using bacterial strains i.e. gram positive and gram negative ones) and anti-inflammatory (virally infected human whole blood) activities. The protein content of the plant and its secondary metabolites were also analysed qualitatively.Methods: The protein content from aqueous leaves extract of C. papaya was quantified using Nanodrop method. ELISA studies were conducted in order to determine the antibody production against ovalbumin (OVA) using papaya aqueous leaves extract.

Hypoglycemic effect of Carica papaya leaves in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats | BMC Complementary Medicine and Therapies ...
Traditional plant treatment for diabetes has shown a surging interest in the last few decades. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to assess the hypoglycemic effect of the aqueous extract of C. papaya leaves in diabetic rats. Several studies have reported that some parts of the C. papaya plant exert hypoglycemic effects in both animals and humans. Diabetes was induced in rats by intraperitoneal administration of 60 mg/kg of streptozotocin (STZ). The aqueous extract of C. papaya was administered in three different doses (0.75, 1.5 and 3 g/100 mL) as drinking water to both diabetic and non-diabetic animals during 4 weeks. The aqueous extract of Carica papaya (0.75 g and 1.5 g/100 mL) significantly decreased blood glucose levels (p|0.05) in diabetic rats. It also decreased cholesterol, triacylglycerol and amino-transferases blood levels. Low plasma insulin levels did not change after treatment in diabetic rats, but they significantly increased in non-diabetic animals. Pancreatic islet cells were

Physicochemical properties of Carica papaya starch enhanced by etherification modification with sodium monochloroacetate...
Starch isolated from carica papaya was modified by treatment with sodium monochloroacetate.. Proximate analyses revealed that moisture, ash, fat, protein and carbohydrate increased after carboxymethylation. But, percentage fibre content reduced from 11.46% in native starch to 9.69% in carboxymethyl starch derivative. The carboxymethylation reaction was confirmed by the presence of new intense bands at 1600 and 1419 cm-1 associated with the carboxyl and carboxymethyl substituents of the etherifying agent. The starch exhibited higher water and oil absorption capacities following modification and least gelation concentration reduced in carboxymethylated starch but increased in native starch. The blue value of starch-iodine colour complex, and turbidity stability decreased and improved respectively after carboxymethylation. Carboxymethylated starch showed a significantly lower pasting temperature, peak viscosity, trough viscosity and setback viscosity as compared to native starch. Differential ...

Papaya (Carica papaya) - OPWR
The papaya tree is one of the most distinctive plants on earth. It is generally 4 to 5 meters tall and unbranched, but old plants may be 10 meters tall. The trunk looks a little like an upside-down, gray carrot. This plant has huge leaves with very long petioles and are clustered near the top of the tree, because the lower ones are shed, leaving large, circular scars on the bark. The stem is soft and weak because it has very flimsy wood (secondary xylem) and a hollow center. Once a plant starts to produce, there is a continuous supply of fruits. All one has to do is to climbing to harvest the lowermost papaya fruit.. The ripe fruit has a yellow and green skin, often with tints of red and orange, and a sweet, semi-firm, yellow-orange pulp. Within the central cavity of the fruit are hundreds of dark seeds that almost appear bluish when the fruit is cut open; they are about the size of small peas and are attached to the pulp. Papaya fruit is most commonly eaten fresh for dessert or made into a ...
