Injuries to DNA that introduce deviations from its normal, intact structure and which may, if left unrepaired, result in a MUTATION or a block of DNA REPLICATION. These deviations may be caused by physical or chemical agents and occur by natural or unnatural, introduced circumstances. They include the introduction of illegitimate bases during replication or by deamination or other modification of bases; the loss of a base from the DNA backbone leaving an abasic site; single-strand breaks; double strand breaks; and intrastrand (PYRIMIDINE DIMERS) or interstrand crosslinking. Damage can often be repaired (DNA REPAIR). If the damage is extensive, it can induce APOPTOSIS.

Caffeine can override the S-M checkpoint in fission yeast. (1/1655)

The replication checkpoint (or 'S-M checkpoint') control prevents progression into mitosis when DNA replication is incomplete. Caffeine has been known for some time to have the capacity to override the S-M checkpoint in animal cells. We show here that caffeine also disrupts the S-M checkpoint in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. By contrast, no comparable effects of caffeine on the S. pombe DNA damage checkpoint were seen. S. pombe cells arrested in early S phase and then exposed to caffeine lost viability rapidly as they attempted to enter mitosis, which was accompanied by tyrosine dephosphorylation of Cdc2. Despite this, the caffeine-induced loss of viability was not blocked in a temperature-sensitive cdc2 mutant incubated at the restrictive temperature, although catastrophic mitosis was prevented under these conditions. This suggests that, in addition to S-M checkpoint control, a caffeine-sensitive function may be important for maintenance of cell viability during S phase arrest. The lethality of a combination of caffeine with the DNA replication inhibitor hydroxyurea was suppressed by overexpression of Cds1 or Chk1, protein kinases previously implicated in S-M checkpoint control and recovery from S phase arrest. In addition, the same combination of drugs was specifically tolerated in cells overexpressing either of two novel S. pombe genes isolated in a cDNA library screen. These findings should allow further molecular investigation of the regulation of S phase arrest, and may provide a useful system with which to identify novel drugs that specifically abrogate the checkpoint control.  (+info)

Increased sensitivity of hydroxyurea-resistant leukemic cells to gemcitabine. (2/1655)

Tumor cell resistance to certain chemotherapeutic agents may result in cross-resistance to related antineoplastic agents. To study cross-resistance among inhibitors of ribonucleotide reductase, we developed hydroxyurea-resistant (HU-R) CCRF-CEM cells. These cells were 6-fold more resistant to hydroxyurea than the parent hydroxyurea-sensitive (HU-S) cell line and displayed an increase in the mRNA and protein of the R2 subunit of ribonucleotide reductase. We examined whether HU-R cells were cross-resistant to gemcitabine, a drug that blocks cell proliferation by inhibiting ribonucleotide reductase and incorporating itself into DNA. Contrary to our expectation, HU-R cells had an increased sensitivity to gemcitabine. The IC50 of gemcitabine was 0.061 +/- 0.03 microM for HU-R cells versus 0.16 +/- 0.02 microM for HU-S cells (P = 0.005). The cellular uptake of [3H]gemcitabine and its incorporation into DNA were increased in HU-R cells. Over an 18-h incubation with radiolabeled gemcitabine (0.25 microM), gemcitabine uptake was 286 +/- 37.3 fmol/10(6) cells for HU-R cells and 128 +/- 8.8 fmol/10(6) cells for HU-S cells (P = 0.03). The incorporation of gemcitabine into DNA was 75 +/- 6.7 fmol/10(6) cells for HU-R cells versus 22 +/- 0.6 fmol/10(6) cells for HU-S cells (P < 0.02). Our studies suggest that the increased sensitivity of HU-R cells to gemcitabine results from increased drug uptake by these cells. This, in turn, favors the incorporation of gemcitabine into DNA, resulting in enhanced cytotoxicity. The increased sensitivity of malignant cells to gemcitabine after the development of hydroxyurea resistance may be relevant to the design of chemotherapeutic trials with these drugs.  (+info)

RAD53 regulates DBF4 independently of checkpoint function in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. (3/1655)

The Cdc7p and Dbf4p proteins form an active kinase complex in Saccharomyces cerevisiae that is essential for the initiation of DNA replication. A genetic screen for mutations that are lethal in combination with cdc7-1 led to the isolation of seven lsd (lethal with seven defect) complementation groups. The lsd7 complementation group contained two temperature-sensitive dbf4 alleles. The lsd1 complementation group contained a new allele of RAD53, which was designated rad53-31. RAD53 encodes an essential protein kinase that is required for the activation of DNA damage and DNA replication checkpoint pathways, and that is implicated as a positive regulator of S phase. Unlike other RAD53 alleles, we demonstrate that the rad53-31 allele retains an intact checkpoint function. Thus, the checkpoint function and the DNA replication function of RAD53 can be functionally separated. The activation of DNA replication through RAD53 most likely occurs through DBF4. Two-hybrid analysis indicates that the Rad53p protein binds to Dbf4p. Furthermore, the steady-state level of DBF4 message and Dbf4p protein is reduced in several rad53 mutant strains, indicating that RAD53 positively regulates DBF4. These results suggest that two different functions of the cell cycle, initiation of DNA replication and the checkpoint function, can be coordinately regulated through the common intermediate RAD53.  (+info)

Sustained induction of fetal hemoglobin by pulse butyrate therapy in sickle cell disease. (4/1655)

High levels of fetal hemoglobin (Hb F) protect from many of the complications of sickle cell disease and lead to improved survival. Butyrate and other short chain fatty acids were previously shown to increase Hb F production in erythroid cells in vitro and in animal models in vivo. However, butyrates are also known to inhibit the proliferation of many cell types, including erythroid cells. Experience with the use of butyrate in animal models and in early clinical trials demonstrated that the Hb F response may be lost after prolonged administration of high doses of butyrate. We hypothesized that this loss of response may be a result of the antiproliferative effects of butyrate. We designed a regimen consisting of intermittent or pulse therapy in which butyrate was administered for 4 days followed by 10 to 24 days with no drug exposure. This pulse regimen induced fetal globin gene expression in 9 of 11 patients. The mean Hb F in this group increased from 7.2% to 21.0% (P <.002) after intermittent butyrate therapy for a mean duration of 29.9 weeks. This was associated with a parallel increase in the number of F cells and F reticulocytes. The total hemoglobin levels also increased from a mean of 7.8 g/dL to a mean of 8.8 g/dL (P <.006). The increased levels of Hb F were sustained in all responders, including 1 patient who has been on pulse butyrate therapy for more than 28 months. This regimen, which resulted in a marked and sustained increase in Hb F levels in more than two thirds of the adult sickle cell patients enrolled in this study, was well tolerated without adverse side effects. These encouraging results require confirmation along with an appropriate evaluation of clinical outcomes in a larger number of patients with sickle cell disease.  (+info)

Radiation therapy with concomitant hydroxyurea and fluorouracil in stage II and III head and neck cancer. (5/1655)

PURPOSE: In 1986, a multi-institutional phase II trial was begun to study the use of chemotherapy with concomitant radiation in patients with stage II and III head and neck cancer. End points were overall survival, progression-free survival, local/regional control, and toxicity in the setting of organ preservation with concomitant treatment. METHODS: Eligible patients with stage II or III disease received chemotherapy and radiation on a 2-week cycle. Chemotherapy consisted of continuous infusion fluorouracil (5-FU) at 800 mg/m2/d for 5 consecutive days (days 1 to 5) and hydroxyurea (HU) at 1 g orally every 12 hours for 13 doses starting the evening before the start of irradiation. Radiation therapy was given as single 1.8- to 2.0-Gy fractions for 5 consecutive days (days 1 to 5) with chemotherapy. Each 5 days of treatment was followed by a 9-day break (days 6 to 14), during which no additional treatment was given. Treatment cycles were repeated until the completion of the planned radiation dose (six to eight cycles). RESULTS: Between 1989 and 1996, 60 patients were enrolled. All patients were eligible for analysis, with a median follow-up of 52 months for surviving patients and 42 months for all patients. Grade 3 to 4 mucositis occurred in 57% of patients. The 5 year-actuarial overall survival, progression-free survival, and local/regional control were 65%, 82%, and 86%, respectively. Eight patients developed local and/or regional recurrence after treatment. Surgical salvage was possible in three of these patients. Thus, the ultimate 5-year local/ regional control was 91%. CONCLUSION: Concomitant radiation and chemotherapy with 5-FU and HU is an effective regimen in patients with stage II and III head and neck cancer. Progression-free survival and local/regional control appear to be superior to expected rates in patients treated with surgery and radiation. Further testing of this regimen in a phase III setting is indicated.  (+info)

Cell cycle-dependent sequencing of cell fate decisions in Caenorhabditis elegans vulva precursor cells. (6/1655)

In Caenorhabditis elegans, the fates of the six multipotent vulva precursor cells (VPCs) are specified by extracellular signals. One VPC expresses the primary (1 degrees ) fate in response to a Ras-mediated inductive signal from the gonad. The two VPCs flanking the 1 degrees cell each express secondary (2 degrees ) fates in response to lin-12-mediated lateral signaling. The remaining three VPCs each adopt the non-vulval tertiary (3 degrees ) fate. Here I describe experiments examining how the selection of these vulval fates is affected by cell cycle arrest and cell cycle-restricted lin-12 activity. The results suggest that lin-12 participates in two developmental decisions separable by cell cycle phase: lin-12 must act prior to the end of VPC S phase to influence a 1 degrees versus 2 degrees cell fate choice, but must act after VPC S phase to influence a 3 degrees versus 2 degrees cell fate choice. Coupling developmental decisions to cell cycle transitions may provide a mechanism for prioritizing or ordering choices of cell fates for multipotential cells.  (+info)

Randomized trial of zileuton in patients with moderate asthma: effect of reduced dosing frequency and amounts on pulmonary function and asthma symptoms. Zileuton Study Group. (7/1655)

This 6-month, randomized, multicenter study was designed to determine whether patients who had been treated with the leukotriene pathway inhibitor zileuton 600 mg four times daily (QID) for 2 months could be maintained at the same level of pulmonary function, symptom control, and beta-agonist use with less frequent dosing--first 600 or 800 mg three times daily (TID) and then twice daily (BID). A total of 278 patients with chronic asthma, ages 16 to 70, participated at 25 US centers. All had a 1-second forced expiratory volume (FEV1) of 35%-75%, reversible airway disease, and a nonsmoking history of 1 year. An 8-week open-label period (zileuton 600 mg QID) was followed by a 16-week double-blind period, in which patients who responded to the QID treatment were randomized to receive zileuton 600 or 800 mg TID for 8 weeks and then rerandomized to receive zileuton 600 or 800 mg BID for another 8 weeks. Primary outcomes were FEV1 and asthma symptom scores; secondary outcomes were peak expiratory flow rate, beta-agonist use, and asthma exacerbations requiring steroid rescue. Patients who showed improvements in lung function when treated with zileuton 600 mg QID demonstrated minimal decreases in FEV1 and comparable peak expiratory flow rates, symptom control, beta-agonist use, and systemic corticosteroid rescue when being treated with lower doses and/or less frequent doses of zileuton. Patients who demonstrate improved asthma control with zileuton 600 mg QID may be able to reduce their daily dosage and/or frequency while still maintaining the same level of symptom control.  (+info)

Safety and clinical efficacy of zileuton in patients with chronic asthma. (8/1655)

Zileuton, a leukotriene pathway inhibitor used to treat asthma, improves lung function, relieves symptoms, and is well tolerated. The purpose of this 12-month, parallel-group, open-label study was to assess the efficacy of zileuton and evaluate liver function in patients treated with this drug (approximately 2% of patients treated with zileuton in controlled trials had reversible liver enzyme elevations). A total of 2,947 patients at 233 centers in the United States were randomly assigned in a 5:1 ratio to treatment with zileuton plus usual asthma care or usual asthma care alone. Efficacy variables included asthma exacerbations; need for alternative treatment, steroid rescue, emergency care, and hospitalizations; forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1); and asthma symptom scores. The safety evaluation included measurement of alanine aminotransferase levels. Patients treated with zileuton had significantly fewer corticosteroid rescues (P < 0.001), required less emergency care (P < 0.05), had fewer hospitalizations, and had greater increases in FEV1 (P = 0.048). They also had significantly greater improvements in asthma symptoms. Increases in alanine aminotransferase levels to three times or more the upper limit of normal occurred in 4.6% of patients treated with zileuton and 1.1% of those receiving usual care (P < 0.001); most increases occurred during the first 2 to 3 months. Alanine aminotransferase levels decreased to less than two times the upper limit of normal or to baseline levels during zileuton treatment or after drug cessation. Jaundice or chronic liver disease did not develop in any patient. Adding zileuton to the therapeutic regimens of patients with asthma is likely to improve asthma control and lower utilization of healthcare resources.  (+info)

PD parameters were obtained after a standardized schedule of hydroxyurea dose escalation to MTD as previously described.2,13 Importantly, dose escalation to MTD for HUSTLE was performed by experienced health care providers who were masked to any knowledge about first-dose PK data. At MTD, both the average %HbF response and the average hydroxyurea dose were almost identical between the New and Old Cohort subjects and were similar to previously published data for children with SCA at hydroxyurea MTD.1,4,5 Predictors of the hydroxyurea treatment response, particularly the %HbF, have been previously proposed; in the original phase 1/2 trial for adults with SCA, the best HbF responses occurred in subjects with higher baseline HbF and baseline WBC count.5 In the phase 3 MSH study the best responses occurred in adults with higher baseline ANC and ARC, as well as those with greater treatment-associated changes in ANC and MCV, but baseline HbF was not predictive.35 In the phase 1/2 trial for school-aged ...
Although hydroxyurea is one of the most widely used drugs in treating breast cancer, the use of it leads to some side effects. Hence, in order to reduce complications of treatment and increase its efficiency, drug delivery has been attracted more attention. Present study included three stages. The first stage was involved in the synthesis of nanoparticles-loaded hydroxyurea that its characteristics were evaluated by using scanning electron microscopy and Zetasizer system. In the second stage, cultured MCF-7 cells were undergone treatments by hydroxyurea and Nanoparticles-loaded hydroxyurea in various concentrations. In the third stage, the MCF-7 was treated by IC50 of hydroxyurea and nanoparticles-loaded hydroxyurea which are in combination with radiation and hyperthermia. Afterward, the viable of cell, apoptosis, and levels of caspase-8 and-9 proteins were assessed. The average size and the potential surface of nanoparticles and nanoparticles-loaded hydroxyurea were 26 nm, 48 nm, 3.86 mV, and -29.3 mV

Hydrogen has potential for preventive and therapeutic applications as an antioxidant. However, micro- and macroparticles of hydrogen in water disappear easily over time. In order to eliminate reactive oxygen species (ROS) related with the aging process, the authors used functional water containing nanoparticle hydrogen. Nanoparticle hydrogen does not disappear easily and collapses under water for long periods of time. The study used murine embryonic fibroblasts that were isolated from 12.5-day embryos of C57BL/6 mice. The authors investigated the ability of nanoparticle hydrogen in water to suppress hydroxyurea-induced ROS production, cytotoxicity, and the accumulation of β-galactosidase (an indicator of aging), and promote cell proliferation. The accumulation of β-galactosidase in the cytoplasm and the appearance of abnormal nuclei were inhibited by daily treatment of cells with hydrogen water. When the aging process was accelerated by hydroxyurea-induced oxidative stress, the effect of ...
Sickle cell disease (SCD) is one of the most common inherited diseases worldwide. It is associated with lifelong morbidity and a reduced life expectancy. Hydroxyurea (hydroxycarbamide), an oral chemotherapeutic drug, ameliorates some of the clinical problems of SCD, in particular that of pain, by raising fetal haemoglobin. This is an update of a previously published Cochrane Review. To assess the effects of hydroxyurea therapy in people with SCD (all genotypes), of any age, regardless of setting. We searched the Cochrane Cystic Fibrosis and Genetic Disorders Group Haemoglobinopathies Register, comprising of references identified from comprehensive electronic database searches and handsearches of relevant journals and abstract books of conference proceedings. We also searched online trial registries.Date of the most recent search: 16 January 2017. Randomised and quasi-randomised controlled trials, of one month or longer, comparing hydroxyurea with placebo, standard therapy or other interventions ...

This 12-month study will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of hydroxyurea in treating beta-thalassemia, a type of anemia caused by defective hemoglobin (the oxygen-carrying pigment in blood). Hemoglobin is composed of two protein chains-alpha globin chains and beta globin chains; patients with beta-thalassemia do not make beta globin. Patients often require frequent red blood cell transfusions. This leads to iron overload, which, in turn, requires iron chelation therapy (removal of iron from the blood).. Some drugs, including hydroxyurea, can stimulate production of a third type of protein chain called gamma chains. In the womb, the fetus makes this type of protein instead of beta globin. It is not until after birth, when the fetus no longer produces gamma globin that the beta globin deficiency becomes apparent. Gamma chain synthesis improves hemoglobin and red blood cell production, correcting the anemia. This study will determine if and at what dose hydroxyurea treatment reduces patients ...
Hydroxyurea is widely used in high-income countries for the management of sickle cell disease (SCD) in children. In Kenyan clinical guidelines, hydroxyurea is only recommended for adults with SCD. Yet many deaths from SCD occur in early childhood, deaths that might be prevented by an effective, disease modifying intervention. The aim of this review was to summarise the available evidence on the efficacy, effectiveness and safety of hydroxyurea in the management of SCD in children below 5 years of age to support guideline development in Kenya. We undertook a systematic review and used the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation system to appraise the quality of identified evidence. Overall, available evidence from 1 systematic review (n=26 studies), 2 randomised controlled trials (n=354 children), 14 observational studies and 2 National Institute of Health reports suggest that hydroxyurea may be associated with improved fetal haemoglobin levels, reduced rates of ...

BACKGROUND:. Stroke occurs in 10% of children with SCA and has a very high risk of recurrence without therapy. Affected children receive chronic erythrocyte transfusions to prevent a secondary stroke, which are effective but have limited long-term utility due to transmission of infectious agents, erythrocyte alloantibody and autoantibody formation, and iron overload. Transfusion acquired iron overload can cause chronic organ damage with hepatic fibrosis and cirrhosis, poor growth and development, cardiac arrhythmias, and early sudden death in young patients with SCA and stroke. An alternative to transfusions for secondary stroke prevention that also addresses the issue of transfusion acquired iron overload is clearly needed. Hydroxyurea can prevent acute vaso-occlusive events in SCA, but its utility for cerebrovascular disease and for the prevention of secondary stroke in SCA is not proven.

We have previously shown that human exonuclease 1 (hEXO1) is phosphorylated in response to agents stalling DNA replication and that hEXO1 consequently undergoes ubiquitination and degradation in a proteasome-dependent manner. In the present study, we have addressed the identity of the pathway transducing stalled-replication signals to hEXO1. Using chemical inhibitors, RNA interference, ATM- and ATR-deficient cell lines we have concluded that hEXO1 phosphorylation is ATR-dependent. By means of mass spectrometry, we have identified the sites of phosphorylation in hEXO1 in undamaged cells and in cells treated with hydroxyurea (HU). hEXO1 is phosphorylated at nine basal sites and three additional sites are induced by HU treatment. Analysis of single- and multiple-point mutants revealed that mutation to Ala of the three HU-induced sites of phosphorylation partially rescued HU-dependent degradation of hEXO1 and additionally ...

The aim of the study was to determine the efficacy and toxicity of alternate week concurrent 5-fluorouracil, hydroxyurea, and cisplatin with radiotherapy for locally advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Patients received 5-fluorouracil, hydroxyurea and cisplatin with radiotherapy on an alternate week basis. Chemoradiotherapy was given day 1-5, and no therapy given day 6-14 for each 14 day cycle. Chemotherapy doses were as follows: hydroxyurea 1 mg every 12 h starting day 0, 5-fluorouracil 800 mg/m(2)/day for 5 days starting day 1, and cisplatin 20 mg/m(2) daily for 5 days every other cycle. A radiation dose of 6000 cGy was prescribed. Acute toxicities were monitored and therapy modified for hematologic toxicity. Nine patients enrolled, however eight were evaluable; one patient expired prior to therapy. The median radiation dose delivered was 5540 cGy. Sixty-three percent required a chemotherapy dose reduction. Fifty percent achieved local control by radiographic imaging after completion of ...

It has been shown previously that loss of Chk1 expression results in the inability of cells to arrest at G2-M after DNA damage and leads to apoptosis (3). To further elucidate the role of the Chk1 pathway in the checkpoint response, in particular after stalled DNA replication, we down-regulated levels of Chk1 in U2OS cells using siRNA specific for the Chk1 gene followed by HU treatment. As a control, U2OS cells were transfected with scrambled siRNA. Cells were treated with HU for 18 h and washed with PBS to allow recovery from stalled DNA replication and reentry into the cell cycle. Cell cycle profiles were determined by fluorescence-activated cell sorting analysis every 24 h (Fig. 1A ). After treatment with HU, both control and Chk1-siRNA cells showed significant accumulation in the late G1 phase (52% and 47%, respectively; Fig. 1B). After HU was removed, control U2OS cells entered into the S and G2-M phases in 24 h and showed cell cycle profiles similar to those of untreated control U2OS cells ...
Hydroxyurea (HU), or hydroxycarbamide, is used for the treatment of some myeloproliferative and neoplastic diseases, and is currently the only drug approved by the FDA for use in sickle cell disease (SCD). Despite the relative success of HU therapy for SCD, a genetic disorder of the hemoglobin β chain that results in red-cell sickling, hemolysis, vascular inflammation and recurrent vasoocclusion, the exact mechanisms by which HU actuates remain unclear. We hypothesized that HU may modulate endothelial angiogenic processes, with important consequences for vascular inflammation. The effects of HU (50-200. μM; 17-24. h) on endothelial cell functions associated with key steps of angiogenesis were evaluated using human umbilical vein endothelial cell (HUVEC) cultures. Expression profiles of the HIF1A gene and the miRNAs 221 and 222, involved in endothelial function, were also determined in HUVECs following HU administration and the direct in vivo antiangiogenic effects of HU were assessed using a ...

Discussion Enzymatically active DNA-PK is a central component of the cellular response to replication fork inhibition [6]. For instance, cells depleted of endogenous DNA-PKcs or expressing an enzymatically deficient kinase mutant are unable to efficiently restart stalled replication forks and show reduced clonogenic survival when treated with hydroxyurea [7]. With the notable exception of RPA32 [8], as well as of auto-phosphorylation [7], few relevant DNA-PK substrates have however been identified in response to replication stress. In this article we demonstrate that hSSB1 S134 phosphorylation is required for clonogenic survival of cells treated with the replication stress compounds hydroxyurea, aphidicolin and camptothecin, as well as establish that phosphorylation is primarily a result of DNA-PK activity. As a small decrease in hSSB1 S134 phosphorylation was also observed following the inhibition of ATM and ATR, we cannot however exclude that these kinases may also contribute a small amount to ...

While you are being treated with hydroxyurea, and after you stop using it, do not have any immunizations (vaccines) without your doctors approval. Hydroxyurea may lower your bodys resistance and there is a chance you might get the infection the vaccine is meant to prevent. In addition, other persons living in your household should not get live vaccines (eg, nasal flu vaccine, measles, mumps, or rubella) since there is a chance they could pass the infection on to you. Also, avoid persons who have had a live vaccine. Do not get close to them and do not stay in the same room with them for very long. If you cannot take these precautions, you should consider wearing a protective face mask that covers the nose and mouth ...

Hi All! I got 2-3 messages on ModelBuilder 3D and I do think it would be good to designate the package as deprecated as it fails in many cases. I would also like to share a bug : in many drug-size molecules the builder assigns bad MMFF94 atom types to the amide Ns, which results in bad 3D geometry, namely neglecting the amide plane. It works well in cases when the amide in like NC=OR, where R is alkyl group, but fails when the first R atom is not C. Therefore in cases like urea, hydroxyurea the result is bad. The problem was in MMFF94BasedAtomTypePattern where you have to change the N atom HOSECODE pattern N-[1-3];[CH]{1,3}.{1}+[A-Z]{0,3}+[,]?+=OC.*+ to N-[1-3];[CH]{1,3}.{1}+[A-Z]{0,3}+[,]?+=O[CNX].*+ to handle other types of amides.

Background: Hydroxyurea is an antimetabolite that minimizes pain and prolongs survival in patients with sickle cell anemia (1). It is not widely prescribed because of concerns about late effects, including cancer (2), and its leukemogenic risk is extrapolated from its reported risk in myeloproliferative disorders (3). Few cases of leukemia in patients with sickle cell anemia have been described, and only half of them report cytogenetics (4). Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) in patients with sickle cell anemia receiving hydroxyurea treatment is exceptionally rare, but data on its true incidence are insufficient (1, 2). Whether AML in hydroxyurea-treated patients with sickle cell anemia is coincidental or related to therapy remains an unanswered question (2) ...

N2 - Ribonucleotide reductase inhibitors reduce the cellular supply of DNA precursors (dNTP) by interfering with their de novo synthesis. A secondary effect is the stimulation of the uptake and phosphorylation of extracellular deoxynucleosides, including their analogs, e.g., 3′-azidothymidine (AZT). Both effects are relevant to HIV replication, which requires dNTP and is impaired by the triphosphate of AZT. Earlier we demonstrated that ribonucleotide reductase inhibitors - hydroxyurea, and two deoxycytidine analogs specifically active in lymphoid cells - increased the phosphorylation of AZT in CEM cells by prolonging the ...

50% of patients had 1 α-gene deleted (−α3.7 deletion). In agreement with previous studies,1,9 they exhibited lower mean cell volume, higher hematocrit and hemoglobin, increased RBC deformability, decreased RBC aggregates strength (P,0.05 for all parameters) and similar blood viscosity compared to patients without α-thalassemia (data not shown). The magnitude of the hematological/hemorheological responses under HU treatment was similar in the two groups, except for hemoglobin (+16 vs. +8%, P,0.05), hematocrit (+23 vs. +11%, P,0.05), the hematocrit/blood viscosity ratio (+34 vs. +8%, P,0.05) and RBC deformability (at 30 Pa: +65 vs. +26%, P,0.05), which increased more in patients without α-thalassemia than in patients with it. The effect of HU on the decrease of the number of VOC/STA events was similar in the two subgroups.. In agreement with previous studies, HU significantly decreased the rates of hospitalization for VOC and ACS in SCA patients who frequently exhibited these ...

Li J et al reported previously that MSCs are resistant to chemotherapy commonly used in hematologic malignancies but are relatively sensitive to anti-microtubule agents. However, the response of MSCs to other chemotherapeutic agents commonly used in solid tumour settings remains unknown. This study was purposed to evaluate the acute direct effects of 4 individual chemotherapeutic agents on human MSCs (hMSC), including cisplatin, topotecan, daunorubicin and hydroxyurea. Using an in vitro culture system, the chemosensitivity of hMSC was determined by XTT assay and compared with NB-4 cells and normal peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMNC). ...

Background Sickle cell anaemia (SCA) is associated with significant morbidity from acute complications and organ dysfunction beginning in the first 12 months of existence. function. Hydroxyurea significantly decreased pain and dactylitis with styles for decreased acute chest syndrome, hospitalisation and transfusion. Hydroxyurea improved PKI-587 biological activity haemoglobin and HbF and decreased WBC count. Toxicity was limited to mild-moderate neutropaenia. Interpretation Although hydroxyurea treatment did not reduce splenic and renal dysfunction assessed by Rabbit Polyclonal to GLB1 main endpoint steps, it resulted in major PKI-587 biological activity clinical benefit because of diminished acute complications, beneficial haematologic results, and a lack of unexpected toxicities. Based on the security and effectiveness data from this trial, hydroxyurea can now become regarded as for those very young children with SCA. Intro Sickle cell anaemia (SCA) is definitely characterized by haemoglobin ...

Figure 1 summarizes the current understanding of hydroxyurea-mediated induction of fetal hemoglobin synthesis. Based on the work of Cokic et al. (2) a link between hydroxyurea, NO, sGC, and fetal hemoglobin now exists (Figure 1). Figure 1 also shows where our understanding of this process remains incomplete, particularly: 1) how is hydroxyurea converted to NO in vivo, 2) can hydroxyurea directly activate sGC, and 3) how does an increase in cGMP induce fetal hemoglobin production? Chemically, the conversion of hydroxyurea to NO requires a three-electron oxidation. While a number of heme- and copper-containing proteins react with hydroxyurea to produce NO in vitro through the intermediacy of both radical and nitroso intermediates (3-6), surprisingly little information exists regarding the in vivo oxidative metabolism of hydroxyurea (12). Some work suggests that NO release from hydroxyurea likely occurs during liver metabolism (13), but to date the actual site and oxidant of in vivo hydroxyurea ...

abstract = In the present study we combined interferon (IFN) and hydroxyurea (HU) treatment, intensive chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation (SCT) in newly diagnosed chronic myelogenous leukemia patients aged below 56 years, not eligible for allogeneic SCT. Patients who had an HLA-identical sibling donor and no contraindication went for an allogeneic SCT (related donor, RD). After diagnosis, patients not allotransplanted received HU and IFN to keep WBC and platelet counts low. After 6 months patients with Ph-positive cells still present in the bone marrow received 1-3 courses of intensive chemotherapy. Those who became Ph-negative after IFN+HU or after 1-3 chemotherapy courses underwent autologous SCT. Some patients with poor cytogenetic response were allotransplanted with an unrelated donor (URD).

Propagation of the vaso-occlusive process in sickle cell anaemia (SCA) is a complex process involving the adhesion of steady-state SCA patients red cells and reticulocytes to the vascular endothelium. The effect of hydroxyurea therapy (HUT) on the adhesive properties of sickle cells and the expression of adhesion molecule genes by erythroid cells of SCA individuals is not yet fully understood. The expressions of the CD36 gene and the VLA-4-integrin subunit genes, CD49d (alpha-subunit) and CD29 (beta-subunit), were compared in the reticulocytes of steady-state SCA patients and patients on HUT using real-time PCR. Basal adhesion of red cells from these subjects was also compared using static adhesion assays, as was surface protein expression, using flow cytometry. Basal sickle red cell adhesion to fibronectin was significantly greater than that of normal cells (P , 0.01); in contrast, HUT was associated with significantly lower levels (P , 0.01) of red cell adhesion that were similar to those of ...

Abstract Background The Multicenter Study of Hydroxyurea (HU) in Sickle Cell Anemia (MSH) previously showed that daily oral HU reduces painful sickle cell (SS) crises by 50% in patients with moderate to severe disease. The morbidity associated with this disease is known to have serious negative impact on the overall quality of life(QOL) of affected individuals. Methods The data in this report were collected from the 299 patients enrolled in the MSH. Health quality of llife (HQOL) measures were assessed in the MSH as a secondary endpoint to determine if the clinical benefit of HU could translate into a measurable benefit perceptible to the patients. HQOL was assessed with the Profile of Mood States, the Health Status Short Form 36 (SF-36), including 4-week pain recall, and the Ladder of Life, self-administered twice 2-weeks apart pre-treatment and every 6 months during the two-year, randomized, double-blind, treatment phase.

Ribonucleotide reductase (RNR) catalyzes the rate limiting step in dNTP biosynthesis and is tightly regulated at the transcription and activity levels. One of the best characterized responses of yeast to DNA damage is up-regulation of RNR transcription and activity and consequently, elevation of the dNTP pools. Hydroxyurea is a universal inhibitor of RNR that causes S phase arrest. It is used in the clinic to treat certain types of cancers. Here we studied the response of the fungal plant pathogen Fusarium oxysporum to hydroxyurea in order to generate hypotheses that can be used in the future in development of a new class of pesticides. F. oxysporum causes severe damage to more than 100 agricultural crops and specifically threatens banana cultivation world-wide. Although the recovery of F. oxysporum from transient hydroxyurea exposure was similar to the one of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, colony formation was strongly inhibited in F. oxysporum in comparison with S. cerevisiae. As expected, genomic ...

To evaluate N-hydroxyurea as zinc binding group in the design of MMP inhibitors, two peptidyl 1-hydroxyureas were prepared by N-hydroxycarbamoylation of the diastereomeric dipeptides H-Leu-Phe-NHMe and H-d-Leu-Phe-NHMe. Peptidyl 1-hydroxyureas were more potent than the parent peptides, but dramatically weaker (4-5 orders of magnitude) than the isosteric (R)-succinylhydroxamate analogue, which displays IC(50) in the range of nM vs MMP-1, -3, -7 and sub-nM vs MMP-2, -8, and -9. The peptidyl 1-hydroxyurea 1a attained an IC(50) of 20muM vs MMP-9, and substantially approaches inhibition of known N-hydroxyureas based on aminoacids or peptides against other zinc metalloenzymes and non-peptidic N-hydroxyureas against MMPs. Strong preference of the O-N1-CO unit for the antiperiplanar amide bond conformation seems to be the major limit for more effective zinc chelation. Methylation of a peptidyl 1-hydroxyurea at N3, to promote the synperiplanar O-N1-CO conformation required for zinc chelation and improve ...
In 259 previously untreated, high-risk ET patients, diagnosed according to the WHO classification system, efficacy and tolerability of anagrelide compared to hydroxyurea was investigated in a prospective randomized non-inferiority phase III study in an a-priori ordered hypothesis. Confirmatory proof of non-inferiority of anagrelide was achieved after 6 months using the primary endpoint criteria and further confirmed after an observation time of 12 and 36 months for platelet counts, hemoglobin levels, leukocyte counts (significantly lower in hydroxyurea group due to its non-selective mode of action) (all p,0.001) and ET related events (Hazard Ratio [95%CI]=1.19[0.61-2.30], 1.03[0.57-1.81] and 0.92[0.57-1.46] respectively). During the total observation time of 730 patient-years, there was no significant difference between the anagrelide and hydroxyurea group regarding incidences of major arterial (7 vs. 8) and venous (2 vs.6) thrombosis, severe bleeding events (5 vs. 2), minor arterial (24 vs. 20) ...

Efforts to understand and overcome the barriers to the use of HU in treating SCD are an important area of inquiry. In this study, we sought to describe some of the characteristics, attitudes, and beliefs about HU among adult SCD patients. Nearly 83% of respondents who were categorized as former users of HU reported being on the drug for 1 year or less, with 56.5% being on it for less than 6 months. Many of these former users (39%) reported that they stopped because their doctor suggested it. We were unable to discern the reason why a patients doctor may have suggested that they stop taking HU. It is possible that the patient was told to temporarily stop taking HU after experiencing some of the well-known short-term toxicities of the drug, such as leukopenia. A patient may also be told to stop taking HU if that patient demonstrates an inability or unwillingness to comply with the treatment regimen. In their studies of provider barriers to the use of HU for SCD patients, both Zumberg et al. and ...
NTO is demonstrated to be ultimately biodegradable by different microbial species, belonging to various bacteria and fungi. The substance can totally transformed to urea and a polar compound assumed to be urea/ hydroxyurea. The first step of the microbial metabolisation is the nitroreduction of NTO within 24 hours to ATO. This is followed by a two week lasting period where the triazolone ring of ATO is cleaved to urea and probably hydroxyurea as second step. This reaction consists on the hydrolysis of the pseudo `guanido group of ATO. The metabolising strains are adapted to the substance and are collected from waste water contaminated with NTO. From this source source two strains could be isolated: - Penicillium chrysogenum CNCM. I-2081 and - Bacillus licheniformis CNCM. I-1915 Both strains were able to biodegrade the substance NTO to ATO and further to urea and hydroxyurea. Besides, a screening of microorganisms from various microbial collections including eight bacteria and 22 fungi, three ...
The drug hydroxyurea, which is used to treat sickle cell disease in adults, also appears to be safe and effective for children as young as 8 months, a new study reports.
B78 Growth arrest represents an innate barrier to carcinogenesis. DNA damage and replicational stress are known to induce growth arrest and apoptotic death to avert genomic instability and consequently carcinogenesis. Working on the genotoxic stress induced by hydroxyurea and methylmethanesulfone, we observed a growth arrest at G1/S-phase that was mediated by destabilization of cyclin D1. The growth arrest was independent of the stability of cdc25A and preceded transcriptional up-regulation of p21waf1. Cyclin D1 destabilization involved its phosphorylation by GSK-3beta at threonine-286 since overexpression of the kinase-dead mutant of GSK-3beta or cyclin D1T286A mutant conferred stability to cyclin D1. Further, overexpression of cyclin D1T286A also helped in bypassing G1/S phase growth arrest. We also observed a rapid inactivation of Akt/PKB kinase in the presence of hydroxyurea. Enforced expression of the constitutively active Akt or viral oncoprotein HBx was sufficient to overcome growth ...

How It works Hydrea is an antineoplastic. Thus, it works by the destroying the growth of the affected cells by stopping its reproduction process. This kills the affected cells and thereby ensures that they will not spread to the rest of the body.. Uses. The medication is mainly used to reduce the pain caused by sickle cell anemia. It is also useful in treating a number of cancers such as leukemia, breast cancer and ovarian cancer. When used with radiation therapy, this medication is effective in treating skin cancer too.. Dosage. The dosage of this medication is determined by the physician according to the severity of the condition and your response to the treatment. This medication is usually taken by mouth, with or without food. It is consumed once day on a daily basis. Do not crush or chew the capsule since this medication must be consumed wholly. Being exposed to this medication can increase the risk of side effects to a great extent. Thus, make sure that you do not break the capsule before ...
Firstly, you need to make sure youre getting enough hugs. Experts range from recommending between 8 - 12 hugs daily.. Secondly, you need to make sure that your hugs count. A half-hearted attempt will not have the same results. Give into the hug, throw both arms around your hug partner and fully embrace them, the longer the physical connection the better. I like to practice 3 breath hugs, no matter how busy you are, you can stop for this time. I also prefer to count breaths as oppose to seconds as that keeps me more in tune with my own bodys rhythm.. Finally, be the hug. Dont think about what you are cooking for dinner, your to do list or a meeting at work. The best way to get the most out of your hug is to focus on how it feels. Be mindful of the weight of the other person and how their body feels as it connects with yours.. Be the hug.. The Contented Family Hugging Challenge. For one week I am going to monitor my hugs. I am interested to see if I already hug enough, I have never counted so I ...
Fission yeast Cid13 and budding yeast Trf4/5 are members of a newly identified nucleotidyltransferase family conserved from yeast to man. Trf4/5 are thought to be essential DNA polymerases. We report that Cid13 is a poly(A) polymerase. Unlike conventional poly(A) polymerases, which act in the nucleus and indiscriminately polyadenylate all mRNA, Cid13 is a cytoplasmic enzyme that specifically targets suc22 mRNA that encodes a subunit of ribonucleotide reductase (RNR). cid13 mutants have reduced dNTP pools and are sensitive to hydroxyurea, an RNR inhibitor. We propose that Cid13 defines a cytoplasmic form of poly(A) polymerase important for DNA replication and genome maintenance.. ...
As bacteria continue to grow more resistant to a wide range of antibiotics, doctors are searching furiously for better ways to kill infectious microbes. Enter hydroxyurea.
