8-Carboxamidocyclazocine: a long-acting, novel benzomorphan. (1/42)

To obtain benzomorphans with a longer duration of action that may be potential therapeutics for treating cocaine abuse, 8-carboxamidocyclazocine was synthesized. The pharmacological properties of 8-carboxamidocyclazocine were compared with the parent compound cyclazocine. Changing the 8-hydroxyl group on cyclazocine to an 8-carboxamido group resulted in only a 2-fold decrease in the affinity of the compound for the kappa-receptor, and no change in the affinity for the mu-opioid receptor, with both compounds having K(i) values of less than 1 nM, based on radioligand binding assays. In the guanosine 5'-O -(3-[(35)S]thio)triphosphate ([(35)S]GTPgammaS) binding assay, the two compounds produced moderate stimulation of GTP binding to the human kappa- and mu-receptors. When given by i.c.v. injection, the compounds produced less than 60% antinociception in the mouse 55 degrees C warm-water tail-flick test. However, in the mouse writhing test, the compounds had high potency in producing antinociception. Antinociception induced by either 8-carboxamidocyclazocine or cyclazocine was mediated by both kappa- and mu-opioid receptors. Cyclazocine acted as a mu-antagonist in addition to its agonist properties at the mu-receptor, as measured by the inhibition of morphine-induced antinociception. In contrast, 8-carboxamidocyclazocine did not inhibit morphine-induced antinociception, demonstrating that it was not a mu-opioid receptor antagonist in this assay. An i.p. injection of an ED(70) dose of 8-carboxamidocyclazocine produced antinociception that lasted for 15 h in contrast to cyclazocine, which produced antinociception, lasting 2 h. 8-Carboxamidocyclazocine is a novel, long-acting benzomorphan, which possesses pharmacological properties that are distinct from the properties of cyclazocine.  (+info)

Neuroprotective effects of SKF 10,047 in cultured rat cerebellar neurons and in gerbil global brain ischemia. (2/42)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Excitatory amino acids and their receptors are involved in mediating ischemic neuronal damage. The sigma-agonists are believed to interact with the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor. Therefore, we studied the neuroprotective, hypothermic, and motor deficit effects of the sigma-agonist SKF 10,047 and the N-methyl-D-aspartate antagonist MK-801. METHODS: Neuroprotective effects were compared using an in vitro ischemia model of cultured rat cerebellar granule cells and the gerbil model of global brain ischemia induced by 5 minutes of bilateral carotid artery occlusion followed by 7 days of reperfusion. RESULTS: In vitro, (+)MK-801 protected against 100 microM glutamate with a 50% protective concentration of 30 nM, followed by (-)MK-801 (150 nM), cyclazocine (0.5 microM), (+)SKF 10,047 (3.3 microM), pentazocine (5 microM), and (-)SKF 10,047 (10 microM). In vivo, (+)SKF 10,047 pretreatment (60 mg/kg) or multiple postischemic treatments provided neuroprotection comparable with MK-801 pretreatment (10 mg/kg). When ischemic animals were administered the multiple dosing regimen of (+)SKF 10,047, no hypothermic effect was noted in the temporalis muscle over 4 hours' postischemia. Motor deficits monitored by a swing grid test showed that 50% recovery from (+)SKF 10,047 was 5.5 times faster than recovery from MK-801. CONCLUSIONS: These results are the first to report a hypothermia-free, in vivo neuroprotective effect of (+)SKF 10,047, a prototypical drug of the sigma-agonist class.  (+info)

Redefining the structure-activity relationships of 2,6-methano-3-benzazocines. 5. Opioid receptor binding properties of N-((4'-phenyl)-phenethyl) analogues of 8-CAC. (3/42)

A series of aryl-containing N-monosubstituted analogues of the lead compound 8-[N-((4'-phenyl)-phenethyl)]-carboxamidocyclazocine were synthesized and evaluated to probe a putative hydrophobic binding pocket of opioid receptors. Very high binding affinity to the mu opioid receptor was achieved though the N-(2-(4'-methoxybiphenyl-4-yl)ethyl) analogue of 8-CAC. High binding affinity to mu and very high binding affinity to kappa opioid receptors was observed for the N-(3-bromophenethyl) analogue of 8-CAC. High binding affinity to all three opioid receptors were observed for the N-(2-naphthylethyl) analogue of 8-CAC.  (+info)

Effects of eptazocine, a novel analgesic, on KCN-induced changes in the cerebral contents of glycolytic metabolites and high-energy phosphates in mice. (5/42)

Effects of eptazocine on cerebral metabolic changes due to a sublethal dose of KCN were investigated in mice. KCN (2 mg/kg, i.v.) induced a temporary loss of consciousness being moderated by eptazocine (1-10 mg/kg) in a dose-dependent manner. The KCN injection decreased the contents of phosphocreatine (PCr), ATP and glucose and increased the contents of AMP and lactate, resulting in a 34% decrease in energy charge potential (ECP) and an increase in lactate/pyruvate (L/P) ratio. Such changes were improved by eptazocine (10 mg/kg) and EKC (3 mg/kg), but not by pentazocine (10 mg/kg) and morphine (3 mg/kg), and the improving effect of eptazocine was completely inhibited by MR-2266 (3 mg/kg), a relatively selective opioid kappa-receptor antagonist. On the other hand, eptazocine (3, 10 mg/kg) was found to increase the glucose content in normal mice, but not to give significant changes in the contents of glycolytic metabolites and high-energy phosphates. These results suggest that eptazocine may improve anoxic changes in cerebral energy metabolism.  (+info)

Binding of opioids to human MCF-7 breast cancer cells and their effects on growth. (6/42)

The well characterized human breast cancer cell line, MCF-7, has been shown to possess membrane receptors for various opioid ligands, and these compounds have been shown to modulate the growth of the cells in culture. Using specific radioligands for the receptor types, we were able to demonstrate that the MCF-7 cells possess multiple opioid receptor types. Relatively high-affinity-binding sites are present for the mu- and kappa-specific ligands, while lower affinity sites are present for the delta-agonist. Opioid ligands specific for the different receptor types significantly inhibited the growth of the MCF-7 cells in a dose-dependent manner when grown in the presence of 10% fetal bovine serum. This inhibitory effect was reversed by the simultaneous administration of the opioid receptor antagonist, naloxone. However, the opioid effect appears to be restricted to the hormonally responsive fraction of the MCF-7 cell growth. Cells grown in the presence of charcoal-stripped fetal bovine serum are refractory to the effects of the opioids unless the media is supplemented with estradiol. The data presented here suggest an important regulatory role for opioids in the growth and development of human breast cancers.  (+info)

Opioid receptor ligands in the neonatal rat spinal cord: binding and in vitro depression of the nociceptive responses. (7/42)

1. Opioid receptors in the neonatal rat spinal cord have been characterized by measurements of ligand binding to crude membrane fractions and by functional tests on the nociceptive spinal response in a spinal cord-tail preparation in vitro. 2. There were high affinity binding sites for [3H]-[D-Ala2, MePhe4, Gly(ol)5]enkephalin (DAGOL), [3H]-U69593, and [3H]-ethylketocyclazocine (EKC) on spinal cord membranes from neonatal rats. Hill slopes for binding of [3H]-DAGOL and [3H]-U69593 were close to unity. The Hill slope for binding of [3H]-EKC was less than unity, even after its interactions at mu-receptors had been blocked with 100 nM unlabelled DAGOL. Binding sites for [3H]-[D-Pen2, D-Pen5]enkephalin (DPDPE) could not be detected. 3. In competition assays U50488 was as potent as PD117302 and U69593 in competition for either [3H]-U69593 or [3H]-EKC binding sites. Hill slopes for a range of competing ligands at [3H]-DAGOL or [3H]-U69593 sites were close to unity. Hill slopes for competition at [3H]-EKC sites were less than one. 4. In the spinal cord-tail preparation from neonatal rats, opioid receptor agonists depressed spinal nociceptive responses evoked by application of capsaicin or heat to the tail. The order of potency was DAGOL greater than U69593 = PD117302 greater than morphine greater than U50488 = [D-Pen2, L-Pen5]enkephalin (DPLPE). 5. The antagonist naloxone was about equally potent against DAGOL, morphine and DPLPE, and about ten times less potent against U69593 and PD117302. The effects of U50488 were much less sensitive to blockade by naloxone than the effects of PD11703 or U69593. The Kappa antagonist, nor-binaltorphimine was equipotent against all three Kappa agonists. 6. The absence of delta-binding sites, and the low potency and relatively high sensitivity to naloxone suggest that DPLPE could be working at mu-receptors in the neonatal rat spinal cord. 7. The binding assays show that U50488 has the same affinity as PD1 17302 and U69593 for Kappa-receptors, yet it was less effective in the depression of nociceptive responses. This may be because U50488 has a relatively low efficacy at Kappa-receptors. It is possible that at high concentrations U50488 activates receptors not affected by other Kappa-ligands. These additional receptors may be non-opioid receptors (hence the insensitivity to naloxone), or they could be a subtype of Kappa-opioid receptor.  (+info)

On the mechanism by which midazolam causes spinally mediated analgesia. (8/42)

The electrical current thresholds for pain (ECTP) in the skin of the neck and tail were measured in rats with chronically implanted lumbar subarachnoid catheters. The effects of a benzodiazepine antagonist and a gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) antagonist on the analgesic effects of equivalent doses of midazolam, fentanyl, and ketocyclazocine were studied. These were the minimum doses producing maximal segmental analgesia when given intrathecally (i.e., they all caused a significant and maximum increase in ECTP in the tail, which was similar for all three drugs, but no significant change in the ECTP in the neck). Flumazenil (Ro 15-1788) administration caused a parallel shift to the right of the dose-response curve for midazolam spinal analgesia. Segmental analgesia following midazolam was also significantly attenuated (P less than 0.05) when the selective GABA antagonist bicuculline was given intrathecally at the same time as midazolam. The highest dose of bicuculline used (50 pmol) caused no significant attenuation of the segmental analgesic effects of either ketocyclazocine or fentanyl. The authors concluded that the segmental analgesia produced by intrathecal midazolam is mediated by the benzodiazepine-GABA receptor complex that is involved in other benzodiazepine actions.  (+info)

At this point of time, quality education can not be measured in the number of years one has to spend in school but in the effectiveness of such a teacher-student transformation taking place. Quality education must be free and available to everyone. With excellent school facilities, competent teachers, and all other problems given solutions, I think ten years are enough. Why prolong when the basic needs for school are still to be addressed? Redefining quality of education in the Philippines only takes a common sense. The solution, very simple (much more like of a common sense thing than coming up with a seeming bright idea that will only complicate the situation): equip the school with better facilities, free tuition, eradicate corruption from among the departments high-ranking officials to the lowest, and train teachers to become most competent and increase their salaries.

Johns Hopkins University scientists trying to determine why people develop serious mental illness are focusing on an unlikely factor: a common parasite spread by cats. The researchers say the microbes, called Toxoplasma gondii, invade the human brain and appear to upset its chemistry - creating, in some people, the psychotic behaviors recognized as schizophrenia. If tackling the parasite can help solve the mystery of schizophrenia, its a pretty good opportunity … to relieve a pretty large burden of disease, said Dr. Robert H. Yolken, director of developmental neurobiology at the Johns Hopkins Childrens Center. The cause of schizophrenia is unknown, but both genetic and environmental factors likely play a part, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. Yolken is among the researchers worldwide examining whether certain viral infections can increase the risk of developing the illness. Other studies have focused on flu and herpes viruses as possible triggers. (Click here for the ...

Here, Mugambi and Kirima provide an African worldview of what a community is and it is encouraging to observe that the gist of what they are saying is the same as Shorters Western definition above. John Mbiti (1969:102) confirms this similarity when he states that an African community is based on kinship through blood and betrothal. It is the kinship which controls social relationships between people in a given group which makes a community.. The community fosters fairness, equality and basic rights for its members and encourages and promotes cultural diversity. Mbiti (1969), who is an authority on African traditional values and worldview, explains the community as that in which the traditional life of an individual cannot exist alone; it can only exist corporately. One owes ones existence to others, including contemporaries and those of past generations. One is part of the whole. The community makes, creates, or even produces the individual, who, in turn, depends on the corporate group ...

The MetS is a major health concern in the United States today being more prevalent in older individuals and in populations of specific racial/ethnic backgrounds. Although MetS is defined by a clustering of metabolic abnormalities including hyperglycemia, high blood pressure and central obesity, we propose the addition of pro-inflammatory adipokines (TNF-α, IL-6, Leptin, PAI-1) as well as CRP being incorporated into the physiological evaluation of those at risk for MetS. Much research exists to show that hyperinsulinemia and central obesity are integral to the development of MetS and that inflammatory adipokines and cytokines are increased in response to the development of insulin resistance and central obesity. However, questions remain as to whether or not these are the primary contributors or sole antecedents to the development of MetS.

Engineers, manufacturers, utilities, public and private enterprise, commerce - in fact, anyone that uses water for temperature control - are, for the most part, quite comfortable in the belief that they are operating an effective and safe water system. But how safe are they really?
Trying to change cultures within banking institutions is never easy, which is why Barclays new chief executive is taking a hard and seemingly Soviet-era approach at the UK bank. The message is clear: Barclays would now like to be seen as a stodgy commercial bank run by a proselytizing Brit.
CMS would have you believe that this is about quality and patient safety. Who can argue with those laudable goals? They are so revered as to be sacred, and with good reason. But dont be fooled. This is cost containment masquerading as quality. As we start to see more and more of these unpreventable never events proliferating, and more and more payors signing on to the concept of not paying for errors you will see that this is really about reducing the total amount that the big payors spend on the care of sick patients, and shifting the risk of caring for the critically ill onto care providers. It is also informative that CMS is focusing on payments to hospitals, which are much more expensive than the payments to physicians, despite the fact that physicians would theoretically be just as sensitive to payment reductions and are in a position to more directly improve the quality of care ...

The word pain literally means a highly unpleasant physical sensation caused by illness or injury. If so, what I experienced during the first 3 months of my treatment was something much more than unpleasant or physical. It was a constant affliction that pervaded from the site of injury right foot upwards to my head. The most agonising moments were when the pain spread stealthily to your mind causing a numbness and freeze hitherto unknown to me in all the 52 years of my life.Being a person prone to resist and disagree with any kind of discomfort this phase of my life taught me many a hard lesson. It set me wondering if one really had to go through such hard times to realise some simple and obviously handy attributes that make life easier and liveable.But I was chosen by some force to know it the hardest way.. My first experience with intense pain was in the naturopathy centre where I took refuge from the merciless and invasive world of modern medicine that I had such unreasonable ...

Press Statement from the Malaysian Bar Council: Malaysia is a secular State. The statement made by the Deputy Prime Minister in this 50th year of Merdeka that Malaysia has never been a secular state is startling as it ignores the undisputed constitutional history of the country as well as the social contract by which the multi racial and multi-religious people of this nation came together. The Federal Constitution was a carefully thought out, carefully negotiated document that evolved after much debate and discussion. Some historical context is necessary. In 1956, Tunku Abdul Rahman had headed a Merdeka Mission to London to negotiate for independence. The negotiations were conducted by 4 representatives of the Malay Rulers, 4 representatives of the then Alliance Government and representatives of the British Government. The Reid Commission was then appointed to draft a constitution for independent Malaya. The Reid Commission held 118 meetings in Malaya. It met a wide cross-section of people ...
This session aims to foster collective reflection on different challenges and opportunities of youth-adult collaboration in community-engaged research. It draws on our decade-long experiences in action-research projects with young people in Montreal. We will share insights from our most recent work with a group of youth co-researchers, which explore issues related to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, as part of a longitudinal study on children growing up with cities.. Issues to be discussed include: the ethics of collaboration; figuring out appropriate types of supportive roles for adults; and more broadly, the multiple benefits of involving youth as co-researchers from the perspective of community youth development and urban planning, as well as for different sectors including schools, municipalities and community organizations.. ...
To the Editor:. As breast cancer continues to pose a major health risk for women, we can ill afford to engage in semantic arguments about what we should call cancer.. A simple name change for ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast should not unravel decades of clinical trial work dealing with its management. Simply put, we cannot predict which lesions will progress (the majority) versus those that are unlikely to progress (a small subset, primarily in older patients).. What the medical community needs is better class prediction based upon a functional understanding of the individual genomic mechanisms involved. Downgrading all ductal carcinoma in situ to indolent lesions of epithelial origin or pre-cancer makes us fear that insurers will stop paying for lifesaving treatments like radiation therapy, anti-estrogen therapy or, on occasion, mastectomies.. It is the physicians responsibility to chart a critical course of treatment for his patients based on each womans circumstances. Our best chance ...
The success of the Call of Duty franchise gave the games industry a reason to celebrate, said Jason Rohrer, the indie developer behind such experimental games like Between, speaking at the Gamasutra-attended Montreal International Games Summit.. With tens of millions of units sold and billions of dollars generated, Call of Duty has led game advocates to point out just how big and mainstream interactive entertainment has become.. But when you compare unit sales of even the biggest games to a recent hit film like Avatar, games still pale in comparison. And when population and monetary inflation is taken into account, games look even worse -- Rohrer did his own number crunching and determined Gone with the Wind had about 1 billion viewers when the world population was only 2 billion people.. He wasnt trying to take the wind out of the games industrys sails, but he was just pointing out that We cant celebrate our conquest of the mainstream quite yet..

The current description of the function of the human androgen receptor (AR), as a transcription factor directing androgen responsive gene expression, is limited in scope and thus is unable to account for the varied cellular and physiological transformation observed in the development and progression of prostate cancer (CaP). The chapter will focus on four important aspects of AR and CaP investigations: (1) a description of AR somatic mutations and the perils of AR-directed therapeutics; (2) our characterization of AR protein interactors that have imbued new functional properties for AR linked to prostatic disease; (3) review of the advances made and shortcomings of AR mouse models in describing CaP onset and progression; and (4) speculate as to the mechanisms by which new mutations can originate and initiate disease onset.

Abstract Age-associated chronic inflammation is characterized by unresolved and uncontrolled inflammation with multivariable low-grade, chronic and systemic responses that exacerbate the aging process and age-related chronic diseases. Currently, there are two major hypotheses related to the involvement of chronic inflammation in the aging process: molecular inflammation of aging and inflammaging. However, neither of these hypotheses satisfactorily addresses age-related chronic inflammation, considering the recent advances that have been made in inflammation research. A more comprehensive view of age-related inflammation, that has a scope beyond the conventional view, is therefore required. In this review, we discuss newly emerging data on multi-phase inflammatory networks and proinflammatory pathways as they relate to aging. We describe the age-related upregulation of nuclear factor (NF)-κB signaling, cytokines/chemokines, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress, inflammasome, and lipid accumulation. ...

Sensory perception comprises gustatory (taste) and olfactory (smell) modalities as well as somatosensory (pain, heat, and tactile mechanosensory) inputs, which are detected by a multitude of sensory receptors. These sensory receptors are contained in specialized ciliated neurons where they detect changes in environmental conditions and participate in behavioral decisions ranging from food choice to avoiding harmful conditions, thus insuring basic survival in metazoans. Recent genetic studies, however, indicate that sensory perception plays additional physiological functions, notably influencing energy homeostatic processes and longevity through neuronal circuits originating from sensory tissues. Here we review how these findings are redefining metabolic signaling and establish a prominent role of sensory neuroendocrine processes in controlling health span and lifespan, with a goal of translating this knowledge towards managing age-associated diseases.

Many authors have insisted on the necessity of defining poverty as a multi-dimensional concept rather than relying on income or consumption expenditures per capita. Yet, not much has actually been done to include the various dimensions of deprivation into the practical definition and measurement of poverty. Existing attempts along that direction consist of aggregating various attributes into a single index through some arbitrary function and defining a poverty line and associated poverty measures on the basis of that index. All this is merely redefining the more general concept of poverty, which then essentially remains a uni-dimensional concept. On the contrary, the present paper suggests that the only way to truly take into account the multi-dimensionality of poverty is to specify a poverty line for each dimension of poverty and to consider that a person is poor if he/she falls below at least one of these various lines. The paper then explores ways to combine these various poverty lines and associated
Musically, the Beatles managed the unparalleled feat of both crystallizing and redefining music over the course of its decade as a band. Their discography is a jukebox of infectious pop music blended with freewheeling experimental and eclectic impulses, especially heard from their 1967 Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band to 1969s Abbey Road. They wanted to change the music world while also embracing its traditional values.. On a humbler level, the Beatles cinematic legacy has achieved a similar balance of emotionality and envelope-pushing audacity. As such, their cinematic oeuvre is the subject of an enticing free-to-the-public film series at UCSBs Carsey-Wolf Center, Beatles Revolutions. The series spans a course of five films made during and after the Beatles life as a band and features special guest speakers, including Beatles engineer Alan Parsons and famed rock critic Greil Marcus..
