The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

Toxicological findings in a fatal ingestion of methamphetamine. (1/11876)

This paper presents the case history of a fatality caused by the complications brought about by the presence of methamphetamine and ethanol. Drug concentrations are reported from samples obtained approximately 15 min after the subject was last observed to be chewing what was then believed to be gum, 3 h after the initial toxic symptoms were displayed, 6, 11, and 22 h later. The subjects conditions deteriorated over the course of this time, and he was declared dead 33 h after the initial display of toxic symptoms. The toxicological findings and concentration levels of the reported biological specimens concurred with the expected findings in a case of methamphetamine toxicity.  (+info)

Expression of both P1 and P2 purine receptor genes by human articular chondrocytes and profile of ligand-mediated prostaglandin E2 release. (2/11876)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the expression and function of purine receptors in articular chondrocytes. METHODS: Reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) was used to screen human chondrocyte RNA for expression of P1 and P2 purine receptor subtypes. Purine-stimulated prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) release from chondrocytes, untreated or treated with recombinant human interleukin-1alpha (rHuIL-1alpha), was assessed by radioimmunoassay. RESULTS: RT-PCR demonstrated that human articular chondrocytes transcribe messenger RNA for the P1 receptor subtypes A2a and A2b and the P2 receptor subtype P2Y2, but not for the P1 receptor subtypes A1 and A3. The P1 receptor agonists adenosine and 5'-N-ethylcarboxamidoadenosine did not change PGE2 release from chondrocytes. The P2Y2 agonists ATP and UTP stimulated a small release of PGE2 that was potentiated after pretreatment with rHuIL-1alpha. PGE2 release in response to ATP and UTP cotreatment was not additive, but release in response to coaddition of ATP and bradykinin (BK) or UTP and BK was additive, consistent with ATP and UTP competition for the same receptor site. The potentiation of PGE2 release in response to ATP and UTP after rHuIL-1alpha pretreatment was mimicked by phorbol myristate acetate. CONCLUSION: Human chondrocytes express both P1 and P2 purine receptor subtypes. The function of the P1 receptor subtype is not yet known, but stimulation of the P2Y2 receptor increases IL-1-mediated PGE2 release.  (+info)

Estrogen enhancement of anti-double-stranded DNA antibody and immunoglobulin G production in peripheral blood mononuclear cells from patients with systemic lupus erythematosus. (3/11876)

OBJECTIVE: To study the in vitro effect of estrogen on IgG anti-double-stranded DNA (anti-dsDNA) antibody and total IgG production in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), in order to elucidate its regulatory role in SLE. METHODS: PBMC from SLE patients and normal donors were cultured with 17beta-estradiol (E2). IgG anti-dsDNA antibodies, total IgG, and cytokine activity in the culture supernatants were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. RESULTS: E2 enhanced production of IgG anti-dsDNA antibodies as well as total IgG in PBMC from SLE patients. Anti-dsDNA production in patients with inactive disease was less responsive to E2 than that in patients with active disease. E2 also enhanced total IgG, but not anti-dsDNA, production in the PBMC of normal donors. Antibody production was increased by E2 to a lesser extent in patients' B cells than in their PBMC. Anti-interleukin-10 (anti-IL-10) antibodies partially blocked the E2-induced increase in antibody production in patients' PBMC, but anti-IL-10 had no effect on B cells. E2 increased IL-10 production by patients' monocytes. Exogenous IL-10 acted additively with E2 in increasing antibody production in patients' B cells. CONCLUSION: These results suggest that E2 may polyclonally increase the production of IgG, including IgG anti-dsDNA, in SLE patients' PBMC by enhancing B cell activity and by promoting IL-10 production in monocytes. These findings support the involvement of E2 in the pathogenesis of SLE.  (+info)

Synergistic protective effects of antioxidant and nitric oxide synthase inhibitor in transient focal ischemia. (4/11876)

Both nitric oxide synthase (NOS) inhibitors and free radical scavengers have been shown to protect brain tissue in ischemia-reperfusion injury. Nitric oxide and superoxide anion act via distinct mechanisms and react together to form the highly deleterious peroxynitrite. Therefore the authors examined the effects and the interaction between the NOS inhibitor, NG nitro-L-arginine (LNA) and the antioxidant/superoxide scavenger, di-tert-butyl-hydroxybenzoic acid (DtBHB) in the rat submitted to 2 hours of middle cerebral artery occlusion. Posttreatment was initiated 4 hours after the onset of ischemia and infarct volume was measured at 48 hours. The dose-related effect of LNA resulted in a bell-shaped curve: 15, 56, 65, and 33% reduction of total infarct for 0.03, 0.1, 0.3, and 1 mg/kg (intravenously [IV]) respectively and 11% increase in infarct volume for 3 mg/kg (IV). Whereas DtBHB (20 mg/kg; intraperitoneally [IP]) was ineffective, the dose of 60 mg/kg produced 65% protection in infarct volume. The combination of a subthreshold dose of LNA (0.03 mg/kg; IV) and DtBHB (20 mg/kg; IP) resulted in significant reduction (49%) in infarct volume. These results show that LNA and DtBHB act synergistically to provide a consistent neuroprotection against ischemic injury when administered 4 hours after ischemia. This suggests that nitric oxide and free radicals are involved and interact in synergy in ischemia-reperfusion injury.  (+info)

Spinal antinociceptive synergism between morphine and clonidine persists in mice made acutely or chronically tolerant to morphine. (5/11876)

Morphine (Mor) tolerance has been attributed to a reduction of opioid-adrenergic antinociceptive synergy at the spinal level. The present experiments tested the interaction of intrathecally (i.t.) administered Mor-clonidine (Clon) combinations in mice made acutely or chronically tolerant to Mor. ICR mice were pretreated with Mor either acutely (40 nmol i.t., 8 h; 100 mg/kg s.c., 4 h) or chronically (3 mg/kg s.c. every 6 h days 1 and 2; 5 mg/kg s.c. every 6 h days 3 and 4). Antinociception was detected via the hot water (52.5 degrees C) tail-flick test. After the tail-flick latencies returned to baseline levels, dose-response curves were generated to Mor, Clon, and Mor-Clon combinations in tolerant and control mice. Development of tolerance was confirmed by significant rightward shifts of the Mor dose-response curves in tolerant mice compared with controls. Isobolographic analysis was conducted; the experimental combined ED50 values were compared statistically against their respective theoretical additive ED50 values. In all Mor-pretreated groups, the combination of Mor and Clon resulted in significant leftward shifts in the dose-response curves compared with those of each agonist administered separately. In all tolerant and control groups, the combination of Mor and Clon produced an ED50 value significantly less than the corresponding theoretical additive ED50 value. Mor and Clon synergized in Mor-tolerant as well as in control mice. Spinally administered adrenergic/opioid synergistic combinations may be effective therapeutic strategies to manage pain in patients apparently tolerant to the analgesic effects of Mor.  (+info)

Angiotensin receptor subtype 1 mediates angiotensin II enhancement of isoproterenol-induced cyclic AMP production in preglomerular microvascular smooth muscle cells. (6/11876)

In a previous study, we found that angiotensin (Ang) II enhances beta-adrenoceptor-induced cAMP production in cultured preglomerular microvascular smooth muscle cells (PMVSMCs) obtained from spontaneously hypertensive rats. The purpose of the present investigation was to identify the Ang receptor subtypes that mediate this effect. In our first study, we compared the ability of Ang II, Ang III, Ang (3-8), and Ang (1-7) to increase cAMP production in isoproterenol (1 microM)-treated PMVSMCs. Each peptide was tested at 0.1, 1, 10, 100, and 1000 nM. Both Ang II and Ang III increased intracellular (EC50s, 1 and 11 nM, respectively) and extracellular (EC50s, 2 and 14 nM, respectively) cAMP levels in a concentration-dependent fashion. In contrast, Ang (3-8) and Ang (1-7) did not enhance either intracellular or extracellular cAMP levels at any concentration tested. In our second study, we examined the ability of L 158809 [a selective Ang receptor subtype 1 (AT1) receptor antagonist] to inhibit Ang II (100 nM) and Ang III (100 nM) enhancement of isoproterenol (1 microM)-induced cAMP production in PMVSMCs. L 158809 (10 nM) abolished or nearly abolished (p <.001) Ang II and Ang III enhancement of isoproterenol-induced intracellular and extracellular cAMP levels. In contrast, PD 123319 (300 nM; a selective AT2 receptor antagonist) did not significantly alter Ang II enhancement of isoproterenol-induced intracellular or extracellular cAMP levels. We conclude that AT1 receptors, but not AT2, Ang (3-8), nor Ang (1-7) receptors mediate Ang II and Ang III enhancement of beta-adrenoceptor-induced cAMP production in cultured PMVSMCs.  (+info)

1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 enhances the susceptibility of breast cancer cells to doxorubicin-induced oxidative damage. (7/11876)

1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25(OH)2D3), the hormonal form of vitamin D, has anticancer activity in vivo and in vitro. Doxorubicin exerts its cytotoxic effect on tumor cells mainly by two mechanisms: (a) generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS); and (b) inhibition of topoisomerase II. We studied the combined cytotoxic action of 1,25(OH)2D3 and doxorubicin on MCF-7 breast cancer cells. Pretreatement with 1,25(OH)2D3 resulted in enhanced cytotoxicity of doxorubicin. The average enhancing effect after a 72-h pretreatment with 1,25(OH)2D3 (10 nM) followed by a 24-h treatment with 1 microg/ml doxorubicin was 74+/-9% (mean +/- SE). Under these experimental conditions, 1,25(OH)2D3 on its own did not affect cell number or viability. 1,25(OH)2D3 also enhanced the cytotoxic activity of another ROS generating quinone, menadione, but did not affect cytotoxicity induced by the topoisomerase inhibitor etoposide. The antioxidant N-acetylcysteine slightly reduced the cytotoxic activity of doxorubicin but had a marked protective effect against the combined action of 1,25(OH)2D3 and doxorubicin. These results indicate that ROS are involved in the interaction between 1,25(OH)2D3 and doxorubicin. 1,25(OH)2D3 also increased doxorubicin cytotoxicity in primary cultures of rat cardiomyocytes. Treatment of MCF-7 cells with 1,25(OH)2D3 alone markedly reduced the activity, protein, and mRNA levels of the cytoplasmic antioxidant enzyme Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase, which indicated that the hormone inhibits its biosynthesis. This reduction in the antioxidant capacity of the cells could account for the synergistic interaction between 1,25(OH)2D3 and doxorubicin and may also suggest increased efficacy of 1,25(OH)2D3 or its analogues in combination with other ROS-generating anticancer therapeutic modalities.  (+info)

SDZ PSC 833, the cyclosporine A analogue and multidrug resistance modulator, activates ceramide synthesis and increases vinblastine sensitivity in drug-sensitive and drug-resistant cancer cells. (8/11876)

Resistance to chemotherapy is the major cause of cancer treatment failure. Insight into the mechanism of action of agents that modulate multidrug resistance (MDR) is instrumental for the design of more effective treatment modalities. Here we show, using KB-V-1 MDR human epidermoid carcinoma cells and [3H]palmitic acid as metabolic tracer, that the MDR modulator SDZ PSC 833 (PSC 833) activates ceramide synthesis. In a short time course experiment, ceramide was generated as early as 15 min (40% increase) after the addition of PSC 833 (5.0 microM), and by 3 h, [3H]ceramide was >3-fold that of control cells. A 24-h dose-response experiment showed that at 1.0 and 10 microM PSC 833, ceramide levels were 2.5- and 13.6-fold higher, respectively, than in untreated cells. Concomitant with the increase in cellular ceramide was a progressive decrease in cell survival, suggesting that ceramide elicited a cytotoxic response. Analysis of DNA in cells treated with PSC 833 showed oligonucleosomal DNA fragmentation, characteristic of apoptosis. The inclusion of fumonisin B1, a ceramide synthase inhibitor, blocked PSC 833-induced ceramide generation. Assessment of ceramide mass by TLC lipid charring confirmed that PSC 833 markedly enhanced ceramide synthesis, not only in KB-V-1 cells but also in wild-type KB-3-1 cells. The capacity of PSC 833 to reverse drug resistance was demonstrated with vinblastine. Whereas each agent at a concentration of 1.0 microM reduced cell survival by approximately 20%, when PSC 833 and vinblastine were coadministered, cell viability fell to zero. In parallel experiments measuring ceramide metabolism, it was shown that the PSC 833/vinblastine combination synergistically increased cellular ceramide levels. Vinblastine toxicity, also intensified by PSC 833 in wild-type KB-3-1 cells, was as well accompanied by enhanced ceramide formation. These data demonstrate that PSC 833 has mechanisms of action in addition to P-glycoprotein chemotherapy efflux pumping.  (+info)

We have investigated the effects of interferon-α (IFN-α) and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) on meningioma cells in two different culture systems, evaluated by the uptake of radiolabelled methionine. With both IFN-α and 5-FU an inhibitory effect on the uptake of radiolabelled methionine by the meningioma cells was demonstrated, and we found a synergistic inhibitory effect with a combination of IFN-α and 5-FU. To obtain a maximal inhibition of cell metabolism without causing cell toxicity, we were able to decrease the dose of 5-FU by simultaneously adding IFN-α. Our results suggest that a combined treatment of IFN-α and 5-FU may be a successful alternative for patients with inoperable meningiomas. A novel in vitro positron emission tomography technique was used for the study of metabolic changes in tumour cells caused by drug treatment, which is complementary to conventional cell culture techniques.. ...
In this study, we systematically explored drug combinations to evaluate specific and promiscuous models of drug synergy. We developed a sensitive drug interaction classification assay and used it to find 38 synergistic drug pairs, of which only 1 (Terbinafine-Rapamycin) had been previously reported (Lehar et al, 2007).. To identify cases of specific synergy, predicted by synergistic genetic interaction, we integrated a newly assembled catalog of drug targets with the synergistic genetic interaction network. Although we tested 38 drug pairs corresponding to genetic interactions and found 14 (37%) to be synergistic, it is difficult to assess whether these drug synergies are better explained by genetic interaction or promiscuous synergy. Indeed, after accounting for background rates of synergy for each drug, our results did not show a significant enrichment for drug synergy among drugs targeting the products of genetically interacting genes.. There are many potential explanations for this ...

Synergistic mechanisms can occur at every step of the process. The aim of this work was to provide information about the effect of chemical carcinogens which, if administered in combination, result in positive as well as negative synergistic effects. In order to evaluate whether for some carcinogens synergism occurs at the initiation step, we compared the effects of Ethylmethanesulfonate (EMS) on Benzo[a]pyrene (BP)-DNA adducts formation in the liver and lung of male Swiss mice treated for seven days by i.p. dose of EMS (1.2 mg/Kg b.w.) alone or by simultaneous administration of three doses of BP (25, 50, 100 mg/Kg b.w.) injected i.p. or the first day of ...

Aberrant growth factor production is a prevalent mechanism in tumourigenesis. If T-cells responded positively to a cancer-derived cytokine, this might result in selective enhancement of function within the tumour microenvironment. Here, we have chosen colony-stimulating factor-1 (CSF-1) as a candidate to test this concept. CSF-1 is greatly overproduced in many cancers but has no direct effects upon T-lymphocytes, which do not express the c-fms-encoded CSF-1 receptor. To confer CSF-1-responsiveness, we have expressed the human c fins gene in immortalized and primary T-cells. Addition of soluble CSF-1 resulted in synergistic enhancement of IL-2-driven T-cell proliferation. CSF-1 also co-stimulated the production of interferon (IFN)-gamma by activated T-cells. These effects required Y809 of the CSF-1R and activation of the Ras-MEK-MAP kinase cascade, but were independent of PI3K signalling. T-cells that express c-fins are also responsive to membrane-anchored CSF-1 (mCSF-1) which, unlike its soluble ...
Melinamide in combination with either retinol or retinyl ester resulted in a synergistic enhancement in keratinocyte proliferation. The effects of the retinol or retinyl esters in combination with fatty acid amides were analogous to treatment with retinoic acid.
Fig. 7. Comparison of the effect of RAD51 antisense molecule and RAD51 inhibitor IBR2 on the cytotoxicity of olaparib and other anticancer drugs. (A, C, and D) Cells were cultured in 25-cm2 flasks, and exposed to siRNA as described in Materials and Methods for 4 hours, followed by addition of one volume of medium. After a further 20 hours, the medium was changed and the drug indicated was added to the final desired concentration. The proliferation of cells in the presence of the indicated concentration of siRNA, as a percentage of the scrambled siRNA control, in (A) was 85.3% ± 11.0% (n = 9) for A549b and 70.2% ± 11.9% (7) for HT-29.

High expression levels of Inhibitors of Apoptosis Proteins (IAPs) have been correlated with poor cancer prognosis and block the cell death pathway by interfering with caspase activation. SMAC-mimetics are small-molecule inhibitors of IAPs that mimic the endogenous SMAC and promote the induction of cell death by neutralizing IAPs. In this study, anti-tumour activity of new SMAC-mimetics Birinapant and AT-406 is evaluated against colorectal adenocarcinoma cells and IAP cross-talk with either oncogenic BRAF or BCL-2, or with the TRAIL are further exploited towards rational combined protocols. It is shown that pre-treatment of SMAC-mimetics followed by their combined treatment with BRAF inhibitors can decrease cell viability, migration and can very efficiently sensitize colorectal tumour cells to apoptosis. Moreover, co-treatment of TRAIL with SMAC-mimetics can efficiently sensitize resistant tumour cells to apoptosis synergistically, as shown by median effect analysis. Finally, Birinapant and AT-406 can
In Response: Ropero et al. (1) conducted an evaluation of the combination of Herceptin and tamoxifen with analyses of drug interaction, the conclusions of which partially contradict our findings previously reported in this journal (3). Similar to our results, they found the drug combination to give a greater growth-inhibitory effect than either agent alone using breast cancer cells in culture. However, using similar pharmacologic analyses of drug interactions, we found the combination to give synergistic growth inhibition, whereas Ropero et al. found the combination to have an antagonistic interaction at doses corresponding to the IC30. Both studies used estrogen receptor-positive, HER2-overexpressing BT-474 human breast carcinoma cells, and it seems that biological differences in the cells used, as well as differences in some of the experimental details, likely account for the disparate outcomes of drug interaction analysis..

We demonstrated that combining ABT-869, a FLT3 inhibitor, with SAHA, a HDAC inhibitor, led to synergistic killing of the AML cells with FLT3 mutations and suppression of colony formation. We identified a core gene signature that is uniquely induced by the combination treatment in 2 different leukemia cell lines. Among these, we showed that downregulation of PTP4A3 (PRL-3) played a role in this synergism. PRL-3 is downstream of FLT3 signaling and ectopic expression of PRL-3 conferred therapeutic resistance through upregulation of STAT (signal transducers and activators of transcription) pathway activity and anti-apoptotic Mcl-1 protein. PRL-3 interacts with HDAC4 and SAHA downregulates PRL-3 via a proteasome dependent pathway. In addition, PRL-3 protein was identified in 47% of AML cases, but was absent in myeloid cells in normal bone marrows. Our results ...
Historically, understanding of acquired resistance (AQR) to combination treatment has been based on knowledge of resistance to its component agents. To test whether an altered drug interaction could be an additional factor in AQR to combination treatment, models of AQR to combination and single agent MEK and PI3K inhibitor treatment were generated. Combination indices indicated combination treatment of PI3K and MEK inhibitors remained synergistic in cells with AQR to single agent but not combination AQR cells. Differences were also observed between the models in cellular phenotypes, pathway signaling and drug cross-resistance. Genomics implicated TGFB2-EDN1 overexpression as candidate determinants in models of AQR to combination treatment. Supplementation of endothelin in parental cells converted synergism to antagonism. Silencing of TGFB2 or EDN1 in cells with AQR conferred synergy between PI3K and MEK inhibitor. These results highlight that AQR to combination treatment may develop through ...

Small molecule inhibitors of signal transduction pathways can elicit complex and sometimes non-intuitive molecular responses in cancer cells. Increasing evidence supports the notion that these responses are important mediators of de novo drug resistance. We systematically assessed molecular and cellular responses to MEK inhibitors, aiming at identifying meaningful targets for combination therapies. Proteomic analyses revealed an EGFR-dependent feedback loop resulting in activation of the PI3 kinase pathway following MEK inhibition. In agreement with this, combinations of MEK inhibitors and inhibitors of EGFR inhibitors or PI3 kinase show synergistic effects on cell proliferation and apoptosis rates in molecularly defined disease subtypes. To further explore molecular networks affected by MEK inhibition, Bayesian network inference algorithms were applied and reverse-engineered networks were generated that are amenable to in silico forward-simulation. Using this technology, new, MEK-dependent, ...
Today the norm in modern cancer treatment is to use different forms of drug combinations. Recently anti-cancer treatment using drug combinations has gained increased attention due to the outstanding pharmacotherapeutic opportunities provided by combination therapies. However, the potential of this field is largely unexplored, partly due to the complexities associated with the astronomical number of possible combinations and partly due to the lack of means for quantifying clinically relevant adverse side effects in the early stages of the combination discovery and development process. This has resulted in relatively limited progress in this area. Motivated by this unfortunate state-of-affairs, the research reported in this thesis was aimed at developing and implementing computational and experimental methods to facilitate and accelerate the discovery and development of anti-cancer therapies. In paper I, the largely overlooked concept of therapeutic synergy is re-introduced and demonstrated to be ...

Observe the colonies on your plate, comparing any differences in the appearance of the colony growth of each isolate, alone vs mixed. Look first at each control culture: the inoculum in each of the diagonal spots is a pure culture control as are the spots in the column on the far left. Compare each spot where two isolates are mixed to the control spots where each isolate is growing alone. Is either isolate growing better in combination than alone? If so, you have found a beneficial interaction. For example, in the assay shown above, it appears that 2+4 grows better than either 2 does alone, a positive interaction for isolate 2. Its hard to say what the presence of 2 does for 4 since isolate 2s heavy growth is making it hard to see what 4 is doing when in combo with 2. In contrast, isolates 2+8 appear to be grow equally well in combination as they do separately. We would not assess their relationship as either beneficial or antagonistic. Check carefully for combinations that show an ...

Dedifferentiated liposarcoma (DDLS) is a rare but aggressive cancer with high recurrence and low response rates to targeted therapies. Increasing treatment efficacy may require combinations of targeted agents that counteract the effects of multiple abnormalities. To identify a possible multicomponent therapy, we performed a combinatorial drug screen in a DDLS-derived cell line and identified cyclin-dependent kinase 4 (CDK4) and insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor (IGF1R) as synergistic drug targets. We measured the phosphorylation of multiple proteins and cell viability in response to systematic drug combinations and derived computational models of the signaling network. These models predict that the observed synergy in reducing cell viability with CDK4 and IGF1R inhibitors depends on the activity of the AKT pathway. Experiments confirmed that combined inhibition of CDK4 and IGF1R cooperatively suppresses the activation of proteins within the AKT pathway. Consistent with these findings, ...
2205 HER-2/neu and estrogen receptor (ER) play critical roles in breast cancer. HER-2/neu and ER are validated therapeutic targets; the anti-HER-2/neu antibody Herceptin and the antiestrogen tamoxifen are effective drugs targeting these two receptors. Retinoids have also been shown to inhibit breast cancer growth. We find that all-trans retinoic acid (atRA) downregulates phosphorylation of HER-2/neu and decreases ER activity in BT-474 human breast cancer cells. We thus hypothesize that treatment with atRA and simultaneous targeting of HER-2/neu and/or ER may synergistically inhibit growth of breast cancer cells. We find that combining atRA with Herceptin, tamoxifen, or both results in strong synergistic growth inhibition of BT-474 breast cancer cells. To elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying this synergistic growth inhibition, we examined the effects of these various drug combinations on cell cycle and apoptosis. We find that atRA, Herceptin, and tamoxifen all lead to an enhanced ...
The synergistic combination of docetaxel (DTX) and cisplatin (CIS) by local drug delivery with a pluronic lecithin organogel (PLO) to facilitate high drug concentrations at tumor sites and less nonspecific distribution to normal organs is thought to be beneficial in chemotherapy. In this study, using Capryol-90 (C90) with the addition of lecithin as the oil phase was developed to carry DTX, which was then incorporated into a PLO-containing CIS to formulate a dual-drug injectable PLO for local delivery. An optimal PLO composite, P13L0.15O1.5, composed of PF127:lecithin:C90 at a 13:0.15:1.5 weight ratio was obtained. The sol-gel transition temperature of P13L0.15O1.5 was found to be 33 °C. Tumor inhibition studies illustrated that DTX/CIS-loaded P13L0.15O1.5 could efficiently suppress tumor growth by both intratumoral and peritumoral injections in SKOV-3 xenograft mouse model. Pharmacokinetic studies showed that subcutaneous administration of P13L0.15O1.5 was able to sustain the release of DTX ...

Ideally, drug interactions are scored from a checkerboard assay relative to the simple null model, indicating that the interaction of a drug with itself is additive (14, 15). Thus, with the Loewe additivity model, if a combinations effect is higher or lower than additivity, the combination is synergistic or antagonistic, respectively (Fig. 1A). We may visualize this intuitive interpretation of the checkerboard by evaluating the contour of a common phenotype (isobole). A straight contour indicates additivity, whereas concave and convex contours are observed in synergistic and antagonistic interactions, respectively (Fig. 1A). The shape of this curve is quantified using the fractional inhibitory concentration (FIC), the standard metric of interaction scores. In the absence of an efficient checkerboard assay, the Bliss multiplicative model has become a commonly used scoring system for determining drug interactions. The Bliss multiplicative model defines the expected phenotype [such as median ...
A high-risk group of patients with follicular lymphoma could benefit from a novel drug combination, according to a new study published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine.
With the emergence of multidrug-resistant organisms, combining medicinal plants with synthetic or orthodox medicines against resistant bacteria becomes necessary. In this study, interactions between methanolic extract of Acacia mearnsii and eight antibiotics were investigated by agar diffusion and checkerboard assays. The minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of all the antibiotics ranged between 0.020 and 500 µg/mL while that of the crude extract varied between 0.156 and 1.25 mg/mL. The agar diffusion assay showed that extract-kanamycin combination had zones of inhibition ≥20 ± 1.0 mm in all the bacteria tested (100%), followed by extract-chloramphenicol (90%) | extract-ciprofloxacin = extract-tetracycline (70%) | extract-amoxicillin (60%) | extract-nalidixic acid (50%) | extract-erythromycin (40%) | extract-metronidazole (20%). The checkerboard showed synergistic interaction (61.25%), additivity/indifference (23.75%) and antagonistic (15%) effects. The synergistic interaction was most expressed
Results In line with robust T and B cell activation, IFN-γ, IFNα, CXCL13, IgG and IgM production was achieved by a combination of SEB and TLR9 (all at least p,0.001). LEF dose dependently inhibited B and T cell proliferation, Interferon, CXCL13 and immunoglobulin production. HCQ dose dependently inhibited B cell proliferation, IFN-α, CXCL13, and immunoglobulin production. T cell proliferation and IFN-γ production were inhibited by HCQ only at higher concentrations. At several suboptimal concentrations LEF and HCQ additively inhibited T cell proliferation both in healthy individuals and in pSS patients. (Figure 1). Significant additive effects were seen for all outcome measures except IFN-α. Since IFNa was already robustly inhibited by HCQ alone (eg.for pSS 90% at 3.3 μM, p,0.001), only trends towards additive effects were observed. ...

5592 Abstract Although a number of methods for assessing drug interactions are available, most methods lack a means of selecting combinations of doses efficiently in planning such experiments. The power-maximized design, derived based on the uniform measures of all possible dose combinations of interest, is able to select the drug combinations (doses of each constituent drug) and to determine the required number of replicates at each combination in order to detect synergy, additivity or antagonism, with pre-specified statistical power for the experiment. An F-test is proposed to detect departures from additivity for combinations of two drugs. To explore the joint effect of the combination, a 3-dimensional combination index surface characterizes the interaction of a two-drug combination estimated using the B-splines. Synergism is manifested as a substantial drop in the combination index which is a 2-dimensional slice of the combination index surface. These methods were applied to evaluate SAHA ...

GPs need to be aware of the bleeding risks associated with the use of chemotherapy or biological therapy alongside cancer drugs that restrict blood vessel growth, a US study suggests.
I have a protein-protein interaction that I have originally detected in bacterial two-hybrid system and pull-down experiments with bacterially expressed proteins also show positive interaction. Now I would like to confirm this interaction also in eukaryotic cells by coimmunoprecipitating the two. Since I do not have antibodies for these proteins, I am using GFP -(Bait) and HA-tagged (target) proteins and thus transfected cells. I have performed the experiment couple of times, and it kind of looks promising: I have positive interaction when the two proteins are present and all negative controls are negative. What makes me doubt is that I do not concentrate the target protein in the immunoprecipitation, that is that my band is weaker in the immunoprecipitation sample than in the original cell lysate sample. In order to have positive interaction do I have to be able to concentrate the target protein? So, what do you think, are these two proteins interacting ...
Drug synergy can be expressed not only as an additive effect, but also as potentiation, ie, substances combined effect is greater than the sum of effects of individual drugs.. In addition, allocate direct and indirect synergies, direct - drugs have a single point of application, an indirect - when the drugs have a different point of application and at the effect of indirectly affect each other.. additive method of drug therapy is widespread in modern medical practice, for example, the introduction of non-narcotic analgesics.Also found their other synergies.For example, the potentiation is used for the introduction of chlorpromazine and drugs for anesthesia.Chlorpromazine, providing a potentiating effect on drugs for anesthesia, to reduce their dosage.Indirect and indirect kinds of synergies are used to treat diabetes and asthma.. additive effect when used properly can be an excellent tool in the treatment of a large variety of diseases.At the same time it will help to heal even those diseases ...

[Increasing experimental and clinical evidences demonstrated the synergic effect between the rapidly implemented immunotherapy and advanced forms of focal radiotherapy, not only on the elimination of the irradiated lesion, but also on the enhancement the immune-mediated systemic anti-tumoral activity. It is essential for gaining the most benefi t from the combination of the two modalities to select the appropriate patients, to defi ne the irradiation parameters, such as radiation quality (ie. particle) dosage, (total dose, fraction number) size of the target volume, the use of other supportive and anti-tumor drugs. In this review, we provide an update for the daily oncological practice on the data accumulated up to now on the molecular basis and patomechanism of enhancing radio-immune effect and clinical results, and highlight the most important parameters, which may increase the abscopal effect of ionizing radiation, thereby increasing the effectiveness of immunotherapy.

Radiotherapy (RT), the major anti-cancer modality for more than half of cancer patients after diagnosis, has the advantage of local tumor control with relatively less systematic side effects comparing to chemotherapy. However, the efficacy of RT is limited by acquired tumor resistance leading to the risks of relapse and metastasis. To further enhance the efficacy of RT, with the renaissances of targeted immunotherapy (TIT), increasing interests are raised on RT combined with TIT including cancer vaccines, T-cell therapy, and antibody-based immune checkpoint blockers (ICB) such as anti-CTLA-4 and anti-PD1/PD-L1. In achieving a significant synergy between RT and TIT, the dynamics of radiation-induced response in tumor cells and stromal cells, especially the cross-talk between tumor cells and immune cells in the irradiated tumor microenvironment (ITME) as highlighted in recent literature are to be elucidated. The abscopal effect refereeing the RT-induced priming function outside of ITME could be ...

Recent tumor sequencing data suggest an urgent need to develop a methodology to directly address intratumoral heterogeneity in the design of anticancer treatment regimens. We use RNA interference to model heterogeneous tumors, and demonstrate successful validation of computational predictions for how optimized drug combinations can yield superior effects on these tumors both in vitro and in vivo. Importantly, we discover here that for many such tumors knowledge of the predominant subpopulation is insufficient for determining the best drug combination. Surprisingly, in some cases, the optimal drug combination does not include drugs that would treat any particular subpopulation most effectively, challenging straightforward intuition. We confirm examples of such a case with survival studies in a murine preclinical lymphoma model. Altogether, our approach provides new insights about design principles for combination therapy in the context of intratumoral diversity, data that should inform the ...

By the late Middle Ages, the term "sodomy" had come to cover copulation between males, bestiality, non-vaginal heterosexual intercourse,[7] coitus interruptus, masturbation, fellatio and anal sex (whether heterosexual or homosexual);[33] and it increasingly began to be identified as the most heinous of sins by authorities of the Catholic Church. In Italy, Dominican friars would encourage the pious to "hunt out" sodomites and hand them to the Inquisition to be dealt with accordingly: "These clerical discourses provided a language for secular authorities to condemn sodomy, ...By persecuting sodomites as well as heretics, the Church strengthened its authority and credibility as a moral arbiter".[34] Pope Leo IX labeled homosexuality in the 11th century as "filthy," an "execrable vice," and "obscene."[35] Likewise around 1051, Peter Damian penned the Liber Gomorrhianus in which he argued for stricter ecclesiastical punishment for clerics guilty of "sins against nature".[35][36] Klaits writes: "From ...
