Vascular endothelial growth factor activates nuclear factor of activated T cells in human endothelial cells: a role for tissue factor gene expression. (1/4361)

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a potent angiogenic inducer that stimulates the expression of tissue factor (TF), the major cellular initiator of blood coagulation. Here we show that signaling triggered by VEGF induced DNA-binding and transcriptional activities of nuclear factor of activated T cells (NFAT) and AP-1 in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). VEGF also induced TF mRNA expression and gene promoter activation by a cyclosporin A (CsA)-sensitive mechanism. As in lymphoid cells, NFAT was dephosphorylated and translocated to the nucleus upon activation of HUVECs, and these processes were blocked by CsA. NFAT was involved in the VEGF-mediated TF promoter activation as evidenced by cotransfection experiments with a dominant negative version of NFAT and site-directed mutagenesis of a newly identified NFAT site within the TF promoter that overlaps with a previously identified kappaB-like site. Strikingly, this site bound exclusively NFAT not only from nuclear extracts of HUVECs activated by VEGF, a stimulus that failed to induce NF-kappaB-binding activity, but also from extracts of cells activated with phorbol esters and calcium ionophore, a combination of stimuli that triggered the simultaneous activation of NFAT and NF-kappaB. These results implicate NFAT in the regulation of endothelial genes by physiological means and shed light on the mechanisms that switch on the gene expression program induced by VEGF and those regulating TF gene expression.  (+info)

The optically determined size of exo/endo cycling vesicle pool correlates with the quantal content at the neuromuscular junction of Drosophila larvae. (2/4361)

According to the current theory of synaptic transmission, the amplitude of evoked synaptic potentials correlates with the number of synaptic vesicles released at the presynaptic terminals. Synaptic vesicles in presynaptic boutons constitute two distinct pools, namely, exo/endo cycling and reserve pools (). We defined the vesicles that were endocytosed and exocytosed during high K+ stimulation as the exo/endo cycling vesicle pool. To determine the role of exo/endo cycling vesicle pool in synaptic transmission, we estimated the quantal content electrophysiologically, whereas the pool size was determined optically using fluorescent dye FM1-43. We then manipulated the size of the pool with following treatments. First, to change the state of boutons of nerve terminals, motoneuronal axons were severed. With this treatment, the size of exo/endo cycling vesicle pool decreased together with the quantal content. Second, we promoted the FM1-43 uptake using cyclosporin A, which inhibits calcineurin activities and enhances endocytosis. Cyclosporin A increased the total uptake of FM1-43, but neither the size of exo/endo cycling vesicle pool nor the quantal content changed. Third, we increased the size of exo/endo cycling vesicle pool by forskolin, which enhances synaptic transmission. The forskolin treatment increased both the size of exo/endo cycling vesicle pool and the quantal content. Thus, we found that the quantal content was closely correlated with the size of exo/endo cycling vesicle pool but not necessarily with the total uptake of FM1-43 fluorescence by boutons. The results suggest that vesicles in the exo/endo cycling pool primarily participate in evoked exocytosis of vesicles.  (+info)

R73A and H144Q mutants of the yeast mitochondrial cyclophilin Cpr3 exhibit a low prolyl isomerase activity in both peptide and protein-folding assays. (3/4361)

Previously we reported that the R73A and H144Q variants of the yeast cyclophilin Cpr3 were virtually inactive in a protease-coupled peptide assay, but retained activity as catalysts of a proline-limited protein folding reaction [Scholz, C. et al. (1997) FEBS Lett. 414, 69-73]. A reinvestigation revealed that in fact these two mutations strongly decrease the prolyl isomerase activity of Cpr3 in both the peptide and the protein-folding assay. The high folding activities found previously originated from a contamination of the recombinant Cpr3 proteins with the Escherichia coli protein SlyD, a prolyl isomerase that co-purifies with His-tagged proteins. SlyD is inactive in the peptide assay, but highly active in the protein-folding assay.  (+info)

Tyrosine kinase inhibitors and immunosuppressants perturb the myo-inositol but not the betaine cotransporter in isotonic and hypertonic MDCK cells. (4/4361)

BACKGROUND: The sodium/myo-inositol cotransporter (SMIT) and the betaine cotransporter (BGT1) are essential for the accumulation of myo-inositol and betaine, and hence cell survival in a hypertonic environment. The underlying molecular mechanism involves an increase in transcription of the SMIT and BGT1 genes through binding of a trans-acting factor to enhancer elements in the 5' flanking region of both genes, resulting in increased mRNA abundance and increased activity of the cotransporters. Current evidence regarding transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation indicates that both cotransporters are regulated in parallel. METHODS: To investigate the signal transduction of hypertonic stress, we examined the effect of tyrosine kinase inhibitors and immunosuppressants on the hypertonicity-induced activity of the two cotransporters in Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells. RESULTS: None of the agents studied affected BGT1 activity in isotonic or hypertonic conditions. Treatment of MDCK cells with genistein, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, increased SMIT activity in hypertonic but not isotonic conditions. The stimulation of SMIT by genistein was accompanied by a parallel increase in mRNA abundance. In contrast, treating cells with tyrphostin A23, another tyrosine kinase inhibitor, or cyclosporine A, an immunosuppressant, inhibited SMIT activity in hypertonic cells. FK506, another immunosuppressant, increased SMIT activity, but only in isotonic conditions. CONCLUSIONS: These results provide the first evidence of divergent regulatory pathways modulating SMIT and BGT activity.  (+info)

Long-term effects of cyclosporine A in Alport's syndrome. (5/4361)

BACKGROUND: In 1991, our initial results of cyclosporine A (CsA) administration in eight patients with Alport's syndrome were published. A significant decrease in or disappearance of proteinuria and apparently good tolerance to CsA were observed in all patients. METHODS: CsA administration has been maintained in these eight patients with the aim of obtaining further information about the clinical course of the disease. The ages of these eight patients currently range from 15 to 27 years, and the mean duration of treatment is from 7 to 10 years (x = 8.4 years). RESULTS: Renal function has remained stable, with no evaluable changes in serum creatinine levels compared with pre-CsA treatment values. Proteinuria in all patients has either remained negative or are values far lower than pretreatment levels. A second renal biopsy was performed in all patients after five years of CsA administration. No aggravation of the lesion present at the first biopsy or lesions typical of cyclosporine intoxication was observed. CONCLUSIONS: After a mean duration of 8.4 years and with no deterioration in renal function, we found possible beneficial effects of the continued treatment of CsA in patients with Alport's syndrome who present evidence of progression to renal insufficiency.  (+info)

Flow-mediated vasodilation and distensibility of the brachial artery in renal allograft recipients. (6/4361)

BACKGROUND: Alterations of large artery function and structure are frequently observed in renal allograft recipients. However, endothelial function has not yet been assessed in this population. METHODS: Flow-mediated vasodilation is a useful index of endothelial function. We measured the diameter and distensibility of the brachial artery at rest using high-resolution ultrasound and Doppler frequency analysis of vessel wall movements in the M mode. Thereafter, changes in brachial artery diameter were measured during reactive hyperemia (after 4 min of forearm occlusion) in 16 cyclosporine-treated renal allograft recipients and 16 normal controls of similar age and sex ratio. Nitroglycerin-mediated vasodilation was measured to assess endothelium-independent vasodilation. Brachial artery blood pressure was measured using an automatic sphygmomanometer, and brachial artery flow was estimated using pulsed Doppler. RESULTS: Distensibility was reduced in renal allograft recipients (5.31 +/- 0. 74 vs. 9.10 +/- 0.94 x 10-3/kPa, P = 0.003, mean +/- sem), while the brachial artery diameter at rest was higher (4.13 +/- 0.14 vs. 3.25 +/- 0.14 mm, P < 0.001). Flow-mediated vasodilation was significantly reduced in renal allograft recipients (0.13 +/- 0.08 vs. 0.60 +/- 0.08 mm or 3 +/- 2 vs. 19 +/- 3%, both P < 0.001). However, nitroglycerin-mediated vasodilation was similar in renal allograft recipients and controls (0.76 +/- 0.10 vs. 0.77 +/- 0.09 mm, NS, or 19 +/- 3 vs. 22 +/- 2%, NS). There were no significant differences in brachial artery flow at rest and during reactive hyperemia between both groups. The impairments of flow-mediated vasodilation and distensibility in renal allograft recipients remained significant after correction for serum cholesterol, creatinine, parathyroid hormone concentrations, end-diastolic diameter, as well as blood pressure levels, and were also present in eight renal allograft recipients not treated with cyclosporine. Flow-mediated vasodilation was not related to distensibility in either group. CONCLUSIONS: The results show impaired endothelial function and reduced brachial artery distensibility in renal allograft recipients. The impairments of flow-mediated vasodilation and distensibility are not attributable to a diminished brachial artery vasodilator capacity, because endothelium-independent vasodilation was preserved in renal allograft recipients.  (+info)

Nephrotic syndrome as a clinical manifestation of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) in a marrow transplant recipient after cyclosporine withdrawal. (7/4361)

GVHD is one of the most frequent complications of BMT and recently nephrotic syndrome (NS) has been described as a manifestation of chronic GVHD. Here, we present an AA patient who developed NS 1 year after BMT when cyclosporine was stopped. Renal biopsy showed focal sclerosis associated with membranous deposits. He also had other clinical manifestations of chronic GVHD: sicca-like syndrome and colestasis. After 15 days of CsA therapy, he experienced a remarkable improvement in the NS and GVHD as a whole. We comment on immunological mechanisms that could be involved in the pathogenesis of this manifestation.  (+info)

Performance and specificity of monoclonal immunoassays for cyclosporine monitoring: how specific is specific? (8/4361)

BACKGROUND: Immunoassays designed for the selective measurement of cyclosporin A (CsA) inadvertently show cross-reactivity for CsA metabolites. The extent and clinical significance of the resulting overestimation is controversial. A comprehensive assessment of old and new methods in clinical specimens is needed. METHODS: In a comprehensive evaluation, CsA was analyzed in 145 samples with the new CEDIA assay and compared with the Emit assay with the old and new pretreatments, the TDx monoclonal and polyclonal assays, the AxSYM, and HPLC. All samples were from patients with liver and/or kidney transplants. RESULTS: The CEDIA offered the easiest handling, followed by the AxSYM, which showed the longest calibration stability. The TDx monoclonal assay provided the lowest detection limit and the lowest CVs. The mean differences compared with HPLC were as follows: Emit, 9-12%; CEDIA, 18%; AxSYM, 29%; and TDx monoclonal, 57%. The CycloTrac RIA paralleled the Emit results. In contrast to the mean differences, substantial (>200%) and variable overestimations of the CsA concentration were observed in individual patient samples. Metabolic ratios, estimates of the overall concentrations of several cross-reacting metabolites (nonspecific TDx polyclonal/specific reference method), correlated with the apparent biases of the various monoclonal assays. Metabolic ratios varied up to 10-fold, which translated into biases for individual samples between -7% and +174%. The higher the cross-reactivity of an assay was, the higher was the range of biases observed. The interindividual differences markedly exceeded other factors of influence (organ transplanted, hepatic function). CONCLUSION: Because assay bias cannot be predicted in individual samples, substantially erratic CsA dosing can result. The specificity of CsA assays for parent CsA remains a major concern.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Morphology of ischemic acute renal failure, normal function, and cyclosporine toxicity in cyclosporine-treated renal allograft recipients. AU - Solez, Kim. AU - Racusen, Lorraine C..

BACKGROUND: Campath 1H is a depleting, humanized anti-CD52 monoclonal antibody that has now been used in 31 renal allograft recipients. The results have been very encouraging and are presented herein. METHODS: Campath 1H was administered, intravenously, in a dose of 20 mg, on day 0 and day 1 after renal transplant. Low-dose cyclosporine (Neoral) was then initiated at 72 hr after transplant. These patients were maintained on low-dose monotherapy with cyclosporine. RESULTS: At present, the mean follow-up is 21 months (range: 15-28 months). All but one patient are alive and 29 have intact functioning grafts. There have been six separate episodes of steroid-responsive rejection. One patient has had a recurrence of her original disease. Two patients have suffered from opportunistic infections, which responded to therapy. One patient has died secondary to ischemic cardiac failure. CONCLUSIONS: Campath 1H has resulted in acceptable outcomes in this group of renal allograft recipients. This novel therapy is of

The aim of the present study was to observe the effects of CsA treatment on HepG2 cells as a means to better understand the events underlying CsA-induced hepatotoxicity. We found that CsA treatment diminished the levels of reduced GSH and α2β1 integrin expression while increasing hepatic injury markers (ALT and AST).. The effect of CsA treatment on cell viability was determined and similar to the findings of Aker et al. on MDCK cells; we found that treatment with 10µg/ml of CsA induced 35% cell damage suggesting CsA specific toxicity to HepG2 cells with this dose.. In the present study, CsA treatment produced a significant elevation in intracellular generation of ROS and changes in glutathione homeostasis suggesting a role for oxidative stress and ROS production in CsA cytotoxicity. It should be mentioned that the reduction in ROS production observed in treatment with 10µg/ml CsA is attributed to the high level of cell death occurring at this concentration (35%). Indeed some authors have ...
Existing pharmacokinetic monitoring tools for cyclosporine fail to correlate with clinical response. In dogs, pharmacodynamic monitoring of nuclear factor of activated T cell (NFAT) regulated cytokines is thought to provide a better overall evaluation of the immune response to cyclosporine than blood levels; however, such monitoring tools are not available in cats. In this study, we designed and optimized a protocol for maximal T lymphocyte stimulation in cats. This is the first step in the development of a pharmacodynamic monitoring tool for cyclosporine in cats based on expression of NFAT-regulated cytokines. We also confirmed that cyclosporine has anti-lymphocytic properties in cats, and we were the first to document induction of apoptosis by cyclosporine in cats. Differences in individual patient response to cyclosporine may be influenced by apoptotic response of lymphocytes to cyclosporine. Additional studies are required to optimize and validate polymerase chain reaction monitoring of ...
Endoplasmic reticulum stress with low-dose cyclosporine in frequently relapsing nephrotic syndrome.: An unfolded protein response due to ER stress induced by Cs
In a prospective study of renal dysfunction in 60 consecutive allograft recipients treated with cyclosporin and prednisolone routine renal biopsies at one week and one month after transplantation, as well as for all episodes of renal dysfunction, were performed. The one year graft survival of this group was 88%. In a retrospective clinical analysis of these patients 35 episodes of dysfunction due to rejection, defined by a response to antirejection treatment alone, and 30 episodes due to cyclosporin nephrotoxicity, defined by a response to reduction in cyclosporin dose alone, were identified. The morphological findings from these biopsies were compared with 20 samples from routine biopsies taken from patients with stable renal function. All patients diagnosed as having rejection had a diffuse, interstitial mononuclear cell infiltrate (32 of 35) or arteritis (19 of 35), or both. In contrast, focal mononuclear cell infiltrates were common in both patients with nephrotoxicity and those with stable ...
We report the 48-month results of a trial testing whether withdrawal of cyclosporine (CsA) from a sirolimus (SRL)-CsA-steroid (ST) regimen would impact renal allograft survival. Eligible patients receiving SRL-CsA-ST from transplantation were randomly assigned at 3 months to remain on triple therapy (SRL-CsA-ST, n = 215) or to have CsA withdrawn and SRL trough concentrations increased (SRL-ST, n = 215). SRL-ST therapy resulted in significantly better graft survival, either when including death with a functioning graft as an event (84.2% vs. 91.5%, P = 0.024) or when censoring it (90.6% vs. 96.1%, P = 0.026). Calculated glomerular filtration rate (43.8 vs. 58.3 ml/min, P , 0.001) and mean arterial blood pressure (101.3 vs. 97.1 mmHg, P = 0.047) were also improved with SRL-ST. Differences in the incidences of biopsy-proven acute rejection after randomization (6.5% vs. 10.2%, SRL-CsA-ST versus SRL-ST, respectively) and mortality (7.9% vs. 4.7%) were not significant. SRL-CsA-ST-treated patients had ...

The immunosuppressive drug cyclosporine A (CsA) causes systemic and renal vascular remodeling, endothelial dysfunction, and hypertension and this is associated with decreased anti-inflammatory regulatory T cells (Tregs). Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs), a heterogeneous population of immature granulocytes, macrophages, and dendritic cells, play a central regulatory role in immune responses by inhibiting various pro-inflammatory innate and adaptive immune cells as well as stimulating Treg expansion. We hypothesized that CsA causes vascular remodeling, endothelial dysfunction, and hypertension in part by decreasing MDSCs and that augmentation of MDSCs in vivo with IL-33 treatment can prevent these effects. Daily treatment of male C57BL6/J mice for 1 week with CsA (50 mg/kg/day, ip) and IL-33 (0.5 ug/day, ip) prevented the CsA-induced decrease in splenic MDSC levels (Day 7 % of lymphocytes: Con=3.7±0.9, CsA=2.1±0.5*, CsA+IL-33=3.2±0.3; *p,0.05 vs. Con), increase in SBP (Day 7 SBP in ...

Cyclosporine A (CsA) is the immunosuppressant of first choice in allotransplantation. Its use is associated with side effects of nephrotoxicity and neurotoxicity, which are among the most prominent. This study was undertaken to explore whether expression and activity of heme oxygenase (HO), the rate-limiting enzyme in heme degradation, is altered in a rat model of CsA-induced injury. Male Sprague Dawley rats were divided into four groups and treated for 21 days. Group I (control) was injected with olive oil (vehicle), group II with CsA (15 mg/kg/day), group III with CsA and the HO inhibitor stannous mesoporphyrin (SnMP) (30 micromol/kg/day) and group IV with one dose of the HO inducer cobalt protoporphyrin (CoPP) 5 mg/100 or heme (10 mg/kg body weight), three days after onset of CsA treatment. Renal tissue was processed for light microscopy, and for HO-1 enzyme activity, assay and for Western blot analysis. In CsA-treated rats there was histological evidence of tubulointerstitial scarring.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Cyclosporine elimination in the presence of TOR inhibitors. T2 - Effects on renal function, acute rejection, and safety. AU - Velosa, Jorge A.. AU - Larson, Timothy S.. AU - Gloor, James M.. AU - Stegall, Mark D. PY - 2001. Y1 - 2001. N2 - Sirolimus in combination with cyclosporine reduces the incidence of acute rejection in renal transplant recipients when administered in double- or triple-therapy immunosuppressive regimens. Sirolimus administered as primary therapy has a beneficial effect on renal function, and the frequency of rejection episodes is similar to that of primary immunosuppression with cyclosporine. A strategy that may result in a more benign immunologic course with a substantially beneficial effect on renal function is to administer sirolimus and a calcineurin inhibitor early after transplantation, thereby promoting immunologic adaptation, and then to withdraw the calcineurin inhibitor at some point after transplantation to prevent nephrotoxicity. This article ...
Oxidative stress is involved in the pathogenesis of a number of diseases including hypertension and renal failure. There is enhanced expression of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADPH oxidase) and therefore production of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) during renal disease progression. This study investigated the effect of apocynin, an NADPH oxidase inhibitor and catalase, an H2O2 scavenger on Cyclosporine A (CsA) nephrotoxicity in Wistar-Kyoto rats. Rats received CsA (25mg/kg/day via gavage) and were assigned to vehicle, apocynin (2.5mmol/L p.o.), catalase (10,000U/kg/day i.p.) or apocynin plus catalase for 14 days. Renal functional and hemodynamic parameters were measured every week, and kidneys were harvested at the end of the study for histological and NADPH oxidase 4 (NOX4) assessment. Oxidative stress markers and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) were measured. CsA rats had higher plasma malondialdehyde (by 340%) and BUN (by 125%), but lower superoxide dismutase and total antioxidant capacity (by ...

The effects of cyclosporine A (CSA) administration, started as early as renal lesion is induced, on the development of Adriamycin-induced nephropathy were assessed by comparing the time course of this nephropathy in rats receiving CSA with that in non-treated animals (group ADR) over 16 weeks. Throughout the experiment, no significant difference in proteinuria was observed between the groups. At the end of the experiment, there was no significant difference between the groups regarding the frequency of glomerular lesion (Group AADR: Md=23%, P25=15%, P75=75%; Group ADR-CSA: Md=48%, P25=11%, P75=70%); tubulointerstitial lesion index (Group ADR: Md=1.5, P25=1.0, P75=2.5); glomerulosclerosis area (Group ADR = 18.2 +/- 4.2%; Group ADR-CSA = 13.2 +/- 1.4%); and, interstitial fibrosis area (Group ADR+V: 1.75 +/- 0.10%; group ADR-CSA: 1.34 +/- 0.09%).

Blood levels should be monitored 2 to 3 times during the first few weeks of therapy or if the route of administration is changed (Draxler & Canafax, 1988; Evans et al, 1986). After several months, stable patients can be monitored less frequently. After cyclosporine has reached steady state, trough concentrations yield the most useful information for therapeutic monitoring (Evans et al, 1986). The therapeutic range of cyclosporine levels vary according to the assay technique used. The polyclonal radioimmunoassay (RIA) method is less specific for cyclosporine than high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Metabolites of cyclosporine are also detected by polyclonal RIA. Polyclonal RIA may be faster and easier to use than HPLC. Monoclonal RIA is more specific for cyclosporine than monoclonal RIA; however, it has not been used clinically as commonly as the other two methods. Cyclosporine levels should be monitored in whole blood because cyclosporine is significantly bound to the cellular ...

Objectives: The purpose of this paper is to report the development of extensive, gingival eruption cyst formation in neonatal dogs during chronic administration of cyclosporine, which regressed after treatment ceased. Materials and methods: As part of an investigation of the efficacy of adenoviral-mediated gene therapy in a canine model of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), 26 Golden retriever pups were given intramuscular injections of adenoviral gene constructs (at 2-5 days old) either with (15 pups) or without (9 pups) concomitant immunosuppression using oral cyclosporine (from 1 to 3 days old). Results: The daily administration of cyclosporine to Golden Retriever pups from 1 to 3 days of age resulted in the formation of eruption cysts over the incisors after approximately 3 weeks of treatment. The gingiva over the remaining teeth became swollen. However unlike the incisors, part of the crown erupted through the gingiva. Continuous treatment for 60-90 days was associated with persistence and ...

This study was undertaken to investigate the relationship between blood concentration of cyclosporine A (CsA), administered intravenously by a 24-h continuous infusion, and drug-induced nephrotoxicity or hepatotoxicity. It was investigated retrospectively in 8 patients who had received an allogeneic bone marrow transplant (BMT). The correlation between daily doses and blood concentration of CsA was not significant. Then, the data of blood concentration of CsA and renal or liver function test result were divided into 5-d periods from the date of transplantation, and the mean value for each period was calculated. The maximum values of blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and serum creatinine (SCr) were consistently observed only after the period when the 5-d mean CsA concentration reached the peak level: the maximum BUN and SCr values were witnessed at Periods 2 to 10 and at Periods 1 to 9, respectively. On the other hand, no consistent correlation was found between the 5-d mean CsA concentrations and liver ...

Laser Raman spectroscopy has been employed to investigate the effects of cyclosporine-A on the order and dynamics of DPPC (Dipalmytoyl Phosphatidyl Choline) midel membrane system. It is shown that the addition of small amount of cyclosporine-A to a DPPC dispersion disturb the system and changes the order/disorder parameter of the model membrane.
The most commonly used anti-rejection medication is Tacrolimus, although Cyclosporine is also used. The latter drug has been shown to have anti-viral activity against HIV, herpes simplex and vaccinia virus, leading researchers to speculate it might also inhibit hepatitis C virus. To examine this hypothesis, they analyzed the impact of the drug in a liver transplant population. They also studied its effect on hepatitis C in vitro ...

If you are taking cyclosporine and experience unusual bleeding or problems breathing, seek medical care. This eMedTV resource describes the side effects that occurred during clinical trials on cyclosporine, including common and serious problems.
Another name for cyclosporine would be its active metabolite, cyclic undecapeptide. To study it chemically, it is made up of 11 amino acids, 10 that were known, and one of which was unknown. These amino acids are hydrophobic, neutral, and able to be dissolved in nearly every organic material except water and hexane.. The benefits of cyclosporine is that it doesnt effect the bone marrow like other previous immunosuppressant drugs do. One of the first drugs used in organ transplantation would be Azathioprine combined with corticosteroids. Azathioprine stops cell growth in all cells, which is bad because it then inhibits bone marrow. Besides effecting the bone marrow, there are other side effects as well. Some of these would include increased vulnerability to infections, hepatotoxicity (chemically caused liver damage), nausea, and vomiting. The corticosteroids inhibit lymphocytes and act as an anti-inflammatory. The side effects of this drug are diabetes and avascular necrosis in the bone (where ...

Purpose: : To assess the efficacy of topical cyclosporine .05% (Restasis®) versus vehicle (Endura®) for the improvement of dry eye signs and change in daily activity impact of dry eye. Methods: : Prospective clinical evaluation of 56 patients with dry eye syndrome. Schirmer testing with anesthesia, noninvasive fluorescein break up time, and ocular surface vital dye staining were performed and the Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) administered. Patients were randomized to either cyclosporine 0.05% twice a day or vehicle twice a day for 3 months. Study visits were at baseline and months 1, 2, and 3. Results: : Cyclosporine improved OSDI scores significantly more than vehicle (mean reduction of 11.4 points with cyclosporine, compared with a mean increase of 0.8 point with tears, P,.001). Dry eye ocular surface parameters also improved significantly with cyclosporine treatment compared with vehicle. Cyclosporine provided statistically significantly greater improvements in Schirmers scores (mean ...

Background. Peritubular capillary injury induces chronic hypoxia in the renal tubulointerstitium, and renal peritubular capillary dysfunction is an early event that contributes to tubulointerstitial fibrosis. Cyclosporine A (CsA) is a potent immunosuppressant and improves survival of renal allografts. However, the limitation of CsA use is chronic nephrotoxicity. A soluble, stable and potent angiopoietin-1 (Ang1) variant, cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP)-Ang1 has been developed. We investigated whether COMP-Ang1 ameliorates CsA-induced renal injury.. Methods. CsA-treated mice were injected with recombinant adenovirus expressing either COMP-Ang1 or LacZ. Histology, inflammatory, haemodynamic and fibrotic parameters, and signalling pathway were evaluated.. Results. Histologic examination showed that COMP-Ang1 significantly decreased CsA-induced tubular damage and tubulointerstitial fibrosis. CsA-induced increases in macrophage infiltration and expression of MCP-1 and ICAM-1 after CsA ...
Cyclosporin can suppress immune system activity to prevent inflammation in the kidneys. It can relieve urinary protein effectively. However, it can also decrease the function of the normal immune system. Taking cyclosporine may increase the risk of developing cancer or infection, especially lymphoma and skin cancer. This risk may be greater if you drink cyclosporine with other drugs that decrease immune function. To the enormous adverse effects of cyclosporine, patients with nephrotic syndrome are eager to find an alternative treatment. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an effective treatment for nephrotic syndrome ...
Low-dose cyclosporine did not improve symptoms in Crohn disease. Cyclosporine, which selectively blocks the activation of T-helper and cytotoxic lymphocytes, has revolutionized organ transplantation and is used to treat several autoimmune disorders. This drug is now being explored as therapy for inflammatory bowel disease. Two well-designed and well-executed double-blind, controlled trials are reported here. An editorial in the same journal is recommended to readers (1). The study by Lichtiger and colleagues is a continuation of their previously published work suggesting an important role for cyclosporine in the treatment of severe ulcerative colitis refractory to steroid therapy. In this study, the response to intravenous infusion of cyclosporine, 4 mg/kg per day, was rapid and impressive. The response was assessed using a clinical activity score. Patients in the placebo group who were switched to cyclosporine also had important improvement in symptoms. Although not documented in this study, ...
Background: Cyclosporine, which is one of the effective systemic treatments for psoriasis, has a rapid therapeutic effect. However, despite the efficacy of cyclosporine, the recurrence of psoriasis may still occur if treatment with this drug is discontinued. Several studies on the efficacy and safety of cyclosporine for psoriasis have already been conducted. However, studies on the factors causing psoriasis recurrence after cyclosporine treatment are rare. Objective: The aim of this study was to identify the factors that cause recurrence of psoriasis in patients treated with cyclosporine. Methods: We performed a retrospective study of the medical records obtained between January 2007 and March 2014 of 174 patients diagnosed with psoriasis and followed up for at least 6 months after treatment. We analyzed the differences in the demographic characteristics, body surface area, psoriasis area and severity index (PASI) score, psoriasis type, accompanying psoriatic nail, involvement of exposed areas, ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Severe neurologic toxicity induced by cyclosporine A in three renal transplant patients. AU - Palmer, B. F.. AU - Toto, R. D.. PY - 1991. Y1 - 1991. N2 - Cyclosporine A (CyA) is a potent immunosuppressive agent that is used in organ transplantation and in a variety of immunological diseases. It has a variety of adverse side effects, some of which can be serious and even life-threatening. CyA-associated neurotoxicity is generally mild, consisting of fine tremor. However, more complex neurologic abnormalities, including motor spinal cord and cerebellar syndromes, have rarely been described in bone marrow and liver transplant patients. Renal transplant patients have been spared from such CyA-induced toxicity. In this report, three renal transplant patients are described who developed complex and severe neurologic toxicity in the setting of therapeutic blood levels of CyA, which was completely reversible on discontinuation of the drug. No patient had a prior history of neurological ...
The most successful treatment for aplastic anemia is bone marrow transplantation. However, few patients are eligible for this procedure. For others, treatment usually consists of immunosuppressive agents, such as antithymocyte globulin (ATG) and cyclosporine. Unfortunately, even with immunosuppressive therapy, relapse is common. New combinations of medications may offer alternative and more effective treatment options. Sirolimus and cyclosporine are two drugs routinely used to suppress the immune system and prevent rejection in patients who have received organ transplants. While cyclosporine has been proven effective for treating aplastic anemia, sirolimus has not been tested for this disease. This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of sirolimus in combination with cyclosporine for treating individuals with aplastic anemia that has not responded to other treatments.. This study will last at least 6 months. Participants will first be screened to verify diagnosis of aplastic anemia. The ...
The challenge when choosing an immunosuppressive regimen for a child is to balance the need to prevent rejection against the infectious complications of these therapeutic agents.. Cyclosporine, a calcineurin inhibitor introduced in the mid-1980s, is a potent lymphocyte-specific immunosuppressive. Neoral, a new oral formulation, has better intestinal absorption than the previous compounds even in the setting of poor bile flow. Monitoring of cyclosporine levels helps to avoid toxicity and ensures a therapeutic range. Most agree that a cyclosporine whole blood trough level of 200 to 300 ng/mL measured by high-performance liquid chromatography or its equivalent represents the therapeutic range. Monitoring peak cyclosporine levels at 2 hours after the dose (C2 levels) may be a more effective way to ensure adequate immunosuppression and limit toxicity. Acute nephrotoxicity correlates with high cyclosporine levels, especially in the early posttransplantation period. Gingival hyperplasia and hirsutism ...
Objective: A mechanism of mitochondrial injury during ischemia/reperfusion is Ca2+-induced opening of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (mPTP). We examined whether cyclosporine A (CsA), an mPTP inhibitor, could benefit resuscitation in a rat model of cardiac arrest. We also assessed whether CsA prevents Ca2+ mediated mPTP opening in isolated mitochondria using a swelling assay.. Methods: VF was induced and left untreated for 10 mins. Resuscitation was attempted by 8 mins of chest compression and defibrillation, observing the rats for 360 mins post-resuscitation (PR). Rats were randomized to receive 10 mg/kg CsA (n=6) or vehicle (n=3) before inducing VF or 10 mg/kg CsA (n=6) or vehicle (n=3) before starting chest compression. CsA treated and vehicle treated subgroups were pooled for the analysis. Four rats not subjected to cardiac arrest served as sham. Mitochondrial NAD+ levels in hearts harvested after the PR interval served as indirect marker of mPTP opening. Mitochondria isolated ...

BACKGROUND: The widespread use of cyclosporine has improved the survival of cardiac transplant patients as a result of reduced morbidity and mortality from rejection and infection. The original oil-based form of cyclosporine demonstrated unpredictable absorption resulting in an increased frequency of acute and chronic rejection in patients with poor bioavailability. The primary end. points of the present, prospective, randomized multicenter, double-blind trial were to compare the efficacy of the micro-emulsion form of cycolsporine (CsA-NL) with the oil-based formulation as determined by cardiac allograft and recipient survival and the incidence and severity of the acute rejection episodes and to determine the safety and tolerability of CsA-NL compared with Sandimmune CsA-(SM) in the study population. The 6-month analysis of the study showed reduced number of CsA-NL patients requiring antilymphocyte antibody therapy for rejection, fewer International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation grade | or
Background: Cyclosporine is the main drug used for immunosupression among cardiac transplant patients and its blood levels can be measured at 0 and 2 hours after oral intake (C0 and C2 levels). Among kidney and liver transplants there are some data suggesting that C2 measurment is the most effective way of monitoring cyclosporine levels. However data about C2 monitorization and cardiac transplantation is limited.. Methods: During the period between May 1998 and May 2002, 18 patients underwent orthotophic heart transplantation and all patients recieved triple immunosupressive regiment (cyclosporine,azathiprine and corticosteroid) postoperatively. Cyclosorine levels were monitored with C0 measurements for the first 9 patients (Group I). C0 and C2 measurements were used for the last 9 patients (Group II). C0 and C2 drug levels were kept within 250-300 ng/ml and 1100-1300 ng/ml respectfully for the first 3 month then target levels were gradually reduced.. Results: Grade 1A to 3A acute rejection ...
Cyclosporin A (CsA) is a well known inhibitor of the organic anion-transporting polypeptide (OATP/Oatp) family transporters, causing a large number of transporter-mediated drug-drug interactions in clinical situations. In the present study, we examined the inhibitory effect of CsA on the hepatic uptake of sulfobromophthalein (BSP) in rats, focusing on a long-lasting inhibition. Twenty-one hours after the subcutaneous administration of CsA, the hepatic clearance of BSP was decreased. The liver uptake index study revealed that hepatic uptake of BSP was reduced in CsA-treated rats for at least 3 days. Comparison of uptake studies using isolated hepatocytes prepared from control and CsA-treated rats showed that hepatic uptake in CsA-treated rats was decreased. In primary cultured hepatocytes, after preincubation with CsA, the uptake of [3H]BSP was reduced even after removal of CsA from the incubation buffer although a preincubation time dependence was not observed. However, the expression of Oatp1a1 ...

Health claims database study of cyclosporine ophthalmic emulsion treatment patterns in dry eye patients Karl G Stonecipher,1 Jenny Chia,2 Ahunna Onyenwenyi,2 Linda Villanueva,2 David A Hollander2 1TLC Laser Eye Centers, Greensboro, NC, 2Allergan, Inc., Irvine, CA, USA Background: Dry eye is a multifactorial, symptomatic disease associated with ocular surface inflammation and tear film hyperosmolarity. This study was designed to assess patterns of topical cyclosporine ophthalmic emulsion 0.05% (Restasis®) use in dry eye patients and determine if there were any differences in use based on whether dry eye is physician-coded as a primary or nonprimary diagnosis. Methods: Records for adult patients with a diagnosis of dry eye at an outpatient visit from January 1, 2008 to December 31, 2009 were selected from Truven Health MarketScan® Research Databases. The primary endpoint was percentage of patients with at least one primary versus no primary dry eye diagnosis who filled a topical cyclosporine
Background: Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptor gamma (PPAR gamma) is a nuclear receptor that regulates the transcription of genes associated with lipid and glucose metabolism. Recently, it has been shown that PPAR gamma modulates the activity of T cells, resulting in inhibition of T cell proliferation and IL-2 release. In this study we investigated whether the PPAR gamma ligand rosiglitazone (R) enhances in vitro the immunosuppressive effects of cyclosporine A (CsA). Methods: CD4(+) T cells isolated from peripheral blood mononuclear cells of healthy donors were activated either with mitogens or by one-way mixed lymphocyte reaction. The activated T cells were treated with (1) CsA at low and high concentration (50, 150 ng/ml); (2) R (20 mu M); (3) R (20 mu M) in combination with CsA at low concentration (50 ng/ml). We studied the effects of the various treatments on cell proliferation (incorporation of [H-3] thymidine), the cell-cycle phases (FACS analysis), IL-2 release (ELISA), and IL-2 ...

In vitro drug interaction studies have demonstrated that Synercid significantly inhibits cytochrome P450 3A4 metabolism of cyclosporin A, midazolam, nifedipine and terfenadine. In addition, 24 subjects given Synercid 7.5 mg/kg q8h for 2 days and 300 mg of cyclosporine on day 3 showed an increase of 63% in the AUC of cyclosporine, an increase of 30% in the Cmax of cyclosporine, a 77% increase in the t1/2 of cyclosporine, and, a decrease of 34% in the clearance of cyclosporine. Therapeutic level monitoring of cyclosporine should be performed when cyclosporine must be used concomitantly with Synercid.. It is reasonable to expect that the concomitant administration of Synercid and other drugs primarily metabolized by the cytochrome P450 3A4 enzyme system may likely result in increased plasma concentrations of these drugs that could increase or prolong their therapeutic effect and/or increase adverse reactions. (See Table below.) Therefore, coadministration of Synercid with drugs which are cytochrome ...

The high incidence of neoplasm and its aggressive progression, which are associated with immunosuppressive therapy, are thought to be due to the resulting impairment of the organ recipients immune- surveillance system. Here we report a mechanism for the heightened malignancy that is independent of host immunity. We show that cyclosporine (cyclosporin A), an immunosuppressant that has had a major impact on improving patient outcome following organ transplantation, induces phenotypic changes, including invasiveness of non-transformed cells, by a cell-autonomous mechanism. Our studies show that cyclosporine ...

Background: Available data suggests that cyclosporin and tacrolimus differ in respect of nephrotoxicity and long term graft function in kidney transplantation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of converting stable kidney allograft recipients from CyA-Me to TAC on renal function and cardiovascular risk profile. Material/Methods: 31 patients with stable renal function (Scr <3.0 mg/dl) were successfully switched from CyA-Me to TAC and followed up for 24 months. Majority (77.4%) had suspicion of CyA nephrotoxicity. Renal function was measured as serum creatinine (Scr) and calculated GFR. Office blood pressure and lipid profiles were evaluated. Results: 29 patients finished the 24 month observation period. 1 and 2 year patients survival was 100%; grafts survival was 93.5% and 91% respectively. No new cases of diabetes mellitus were identified. Mean SCr fell from 2.28±0.4 to 1.95±0.4 mg/dl (P<.02) and calculated GFR increased from 49.1±15 to 55.2±16 mL/min (P<.05). Total

CsA-treated animals showed a significant reduction in hepatic tissue abundance of cholesterol 7α-hydroxylase. This enzyme is the rate-limiting step in cholesterol conversion to bile acid, which is the principal pathway of cholesterol catabolism. Therefore, its down-regulation by CsA therapy can potentially contribute to elevation of cholesterol level. In an earlier study, Princen et al. (1991)demonstrated that CsA blocks bile acid synthesis by cultured hepatocytes in vitro. Down-regulation of hepatic cholesterol 7α-hydroxylase shown in the CsA-treated animals here provides the molecular basis of the in vitro studies by Princen et al. (1991). Intracellular concentration of free cholesterol exerts a direct regulatory role on hepatic cholesterol 7α-hydroxylase expression in the liver (Russell and Setchell, 1992). Down-regulation of cholesterol 7α-hydroxylase found in our CsA-treated animals may be due to depressed intracellular free cholesterol concentration noted in these animals.. In contrast ...
Background Renal transplantation is associated with an increased risk for premature cardiovascular disease. We analyzed the data in the placebo arm of Assessment of Lescol in Renal Transplantation (ALERT) to improve our understanding of the relationship between cardiovascular risk factors and outcomes in this unique population. Methods: We performed Cox survival analysis for myocardial infarction, cardiac death, and noncardiac death in 1,052 patients recruited to the placebo arm of ALERT. These subjects were aged 30 to 75 years, had stable graft function at least 6 months after transplantation, had a serum total cholesterol level between 155 and 348 mg/dL (4 and 9 mmol/L), and were receiving cyclosporine-based immunosuppression. Results: The results confirm previous studies. In multivarlate analysis, preexisting coronary heart disease (hazard ratio [HR], 3.69, P < 0.001), total cholesterol level (HR, 1.55 per 50 mg/dL, P = 0.0045), and prior acute rejection (HR, 2.36, P = 0.0023) were ...
Tumor angiogenesis is a hallmark of cancer, and plays a critical role in tumor growth, expansion, and metastasis. Both physiological and pathological angiogenesis is assumed to be regulated by the balance between pro and anti-angiogenic factors. One of the best characterized and most potent pro-angiogenic regulators is vascular endothelial growth factor, or VEGF. Calcineurin signaling is an important mediator of VEGF signaling in endothelial cells. Negative regulation of calcineurin by increased expression of its endogenous inhibitor, Down Syndrome Candidate Region-1 (DSCR1), suppresses tumor growth and angiogenesis. However, a potent pharmacological calcineurin inhibitor, the commonly used immunosuppressant cyclosporin A (CsA), significantly increases the incidence of cancer in organ transplant recipients. The mechanism by which CsA promotes cancer in this patient population is not well understood and despite the significance of calcineurin signaling in endothelial cells, the consequences of CsA on
