This study analysed the inhibitory effect of erythromycin on bleomycin-induced acute lung injury and found that, by pathological analysis, the most marked changes such as interstitial oedema and infiltration of inflammatory cells into the lung were induced at day 7 following bleomycin treatment.. Pretreatment with erythromycin prior to bleomycin + erythromycin decreased the 2.29-fold increase in total BAL cell count with bleomycin alone to a 1.32-fold increase compared with that with erythromycin alone. The neutrophil ratio in the BAL fluid in the BLM + EM group was 0.444 (69.7/156.9) compared with that of the bleomycin alone group. Furthermore, the neutrophil ratio in the BLM + pre-EM group was 0.106, which indicated that erythromycin caused marked inhibition of neutrophil infiltration into the airway in bleomycin-induced lung injury. An inhibitory effect of erythromycin on neutrophil chemotaxis in patients with chronic bronchitis and diffuse panbronchiolitis has been reported previously.10 16 ...
Bleomycin is a broad-spectrum glycopeptide antitumor antibiotic produced by Streptomyces verticillus. Clinically, the mixture of bleomycin A2 and bleomycin B2 is widely used in combination with other drugs for the treatment of various cancers. As a secondary metabolite, the biosynthesis of bleomycin is precisely controlled by the complex extra-/intracellular regulation mechanisms, it is imperative to investigate the global metabolic and regulatory system involved in bleomycin biosynthesis for increasing bleomycin production. N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc), the vital signaling molecule controlling the onset of development and antibiotic synthesis in Streptomyces, was found to increase the yields of bleomycins significantly in chemically defined medium. To mine the gene information relevant to GlcNAc metabolism, the DNA sequences of dasR-dasA-dasBCD-nagB and nagKA in S. verticillus were determined by chromosome walking. From the results of Real time fluorescence quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) and

Frizzled-related proteins (FRZB) was the founding person in this family members [16-18] and verified to bind xWNT8 and antagonize its activity in and versions, including the impact caused by lack of endogenous SFRP1 and FRZB in the bleomycin-induced lung fibrosis model. We display that both and so are upregulated during bleomycin-induced lung fibrosis. to review their powerful profile in the bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis model. and mRNA amounts had been 2 log-scales even more abundant than those of and may not be recognized. amounts were significantly improved at all period factors after bleomycin treatment however, not different between period points (Shape?1C) (2-method ANOVA PBS, 0.05 for period and connections). amounts were considerably and consistently elevated as time passes after bleomycin treatment (2-method ANOVA 0.0001 for bleomycin PBS, and ...
Iron has been shown to be important in ischaemic, immune and toxic forms of tissue injury in various organs. Although it is generally accepted that iron participates in the generation of powerful oxidant species (e.g. hydroxyl radicals) there has not been any direct evidence that iron capable of catalysing free-radical reactions is increased in tissues in these models of injury. In the present study we demonstrate that ischaemia/reperfusion injury to the kidney results in no significant change in total, nonhaem or ferritin iron levels, but there is a marked and specific increase in bleomycin-detectable iron (capable of catalysing free-radical reactions) in the kidney. The increase in bleomycin-detectable iron is observed only after reperfusion but not during the ischaemic period. In a separate study we demonstrate that despite a drastic reduction in the iron content in the kidney, as a result of feeding an iron-deficient diet, there is a similar and a marked increase in the bleomycin-detectable ...
In the presence of ferrous ions (Fe2+), the anti-tumour agent bleomycin will induce DNA degradation. Degradation of DNA into substances detectable by the thiobarbituric acid test has been used previously for the detection of iron in a form that is capable of catalysing the formation of the potentially harmful hydroxyl free radical. In the present paper, we describe the application of the ethidium-binding assay of DNA damage to the measurement of bleomycin-detectable iron, comparing its performance with the conventional method in the assessment of iron standard solutions and plasma samples from haemochromatosis patients. The ethidium-binding assay proved to be more responsive than the thiobarbituric acid test in the detection of DNA damage induced by very low concentrations of iron, but became saturated at higher iron concentrations. Agreement between the two versions of the assay in the identification of plasma samples containing bleomycin-detectable iron was good, but agreement on the actual ...
Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a connective tissue disorder characterised by the development of skin fibrosis. Our current understanding of the disease pathogenesis is incomplete and the study of SSc is hindered, at least partially, by a lack of animal models that fully replicate the complex state of human disease. Murine model of bleomycin-induced dermal fibrosis encapsulates important events that take place early in the disease course. To characterise the optimum in vivo parameters required for the successful induction of dermal fibrosis we subjected three commonly used mouse strains to repeated subcutaneous bleomycin injections. We aimed to identify the effects of genetic background and gender on the severity of skin fibrosis. We used male and female Balb/C, C57BL/6, and DBA/2 strains and assessed their susceptibility to bleomycin-induced fibrosis by measuring dermal thickness, hydroxyproline/collagen content and number of resident myofibroblasts, all of which are important indicators of the severity of

Matrix metalloproteinase-8 (MMP-8) is a potent interstitial collagenase thought to be expressed mainly by polymorphonuclear neutrophils. To determine whether MMP-8 regulates lung inflammatory or fibrotic responses to bleomycin, we delivered bleomycin by the intratracheal route to wild-type (WT) versus Mmp-8−/− mice and quantified MMP-8 expression, and inflammation and fibrosis in the lung samples. Mmp-8 steady state mRNA and protein levels increase in whole lung and bronchoalveolar lavage samples when WT mice are treated with bleomycin. Activated murine lung fibroblasts express Mmp-8 in vitro. MMP-8 expression is increased in leukocytes in the lungs of patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis compared with control lung samples. Compared with bleomycin-treated WT mice, bleomycin-treated Mmp-8−/− mice have greater lung inflammation, but reduced lung fibrosis. Whereas bleomycin-treated Mmp-8−/− and WT mice have similar lung levels of several pro- and antifibrotic mediators (TGF-β, ...
Objectives Reduced caveolin-1 levels in lung fibroblasts from patients with scleroderma and the lungs of bleomycin-treated mice promote collagen overexpression and lung fibrosis. This study was undertaken to determine whether caveolin-1 is deficient in leucocytes from bleomycin-treated mice and patients with scleroderma and to examine the consequences of this deficiency and its reversal.. Methods Mice or cells received the caveolin-1 scaffolding domain (CSD) peptide to reverse the pathological effects of reduced caveolin-1 expression. In bleomycin-treated mice, the levels of caveolin-1 in leucocytes and the effect of CSD peptide on leucocyte accumulation in lung tissue were examined. To validate the results in human disease and to identify caveolin-1-regulated molecular mechanisms, monocytes and neutrophils were isolated from patients with scleroderma and control subjects and caveolin-1, extracellular signal-regulated protein kinase (ERK), c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK), p38, CXC chemokine ...

N2 - In a recent study, we described the enhanced double-strand cleavage of hairpin DNAs by Fe·bleomycin (Fe·BLM) that accompanies increasingly strong binding of this antitumor agent and suggested that this effect may be relevant to the mechanism by which BLM mediates its antitumor effects. Because the DNA in tumor cells is known to be hypomethylated on cytidine relative to that in normal cells, it seemed of interest to study the possible effects of methylation status on BLM-induced double-strand DNA cleavage. Three hairpin DNAs found to bind strongly to bleomycin, and their methylated counterparts, were used to study the effect of methylation on bleomycin-induced DNA degradation. Under conditions of limited DNA cleavage, there was a significant overall decrease in the cleavage of methylated hairpin DNAs. ...
A mixture of the sulfate salts of basic glycopeptide antineoplastic antibiotics isolated from Streptomyces verticillus. Bleomycin sulfate forms complexes with iron that reduce molecular oxygen to superoxide and hydroxyl radicals which cause single- and double-stranded breaks in DNA; these reactive oxygen species also induce lipid peroxidation, carbohydrate oxidation, and alterations in prostaglandin synthesis and degradation.
Liposomal formulations of chemotherapeutic agents increase drug accumulation in tumors, which permits disease palliation at relatively low doses and thus decreases some of the dose-limiting toxicity. Multi-agent therapy is considered to be more effective than single-agent therapy; therefore, DOX-SL will be combined with bleomycin and vincristine.. Patients are randomized to receive intravenous DOX-SL alone or in combination with vincristine/bleomycin every 2 weeks. Filgrastim ( granulocyte colony-stimulating factor; G-CSF ) may be given as needed for neutropenia.. AS PER AMENDMENT 11/7/96: Based on interim review data, it is recommended that subjects receiving DOX-SL plus vincristine/bleomycin have vincristine/bleomycin discontinued and receive DOX-SL alone unless, in the opinion of the treating physician, they are benefitting from the DOX-SL plus vincristine/bleomycin regimen. ...

Introduction Transforming Growth Factor-beta (TGFβ) promotes anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic pathways in lung epithelial cells, both of which have been implicated in the pathogenesis of IPF. TGFβ must be activated before it can mediate these events. Acute exacerbations of IPF are characterised by widespread epithelial cell apoptosis. The precise cause of these exacerbations is not known. The Influenza A virus is a single-stranded segmented RNA virus that infects epithelial cells leading to cell death and injury, and can also activate TGFβ. The role of infection in acute exacerbations of IPF is unclear. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of influenza infection on bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis and TGFβ activation in vivo.. ...
Background: We recently reported that PBI-Compound demonstrated anti-inflammatory and anti-fibrotic activities in acute and chronic kidney disease models. Inflammatory cytokines play a key role in the pathogenesis of pulmonary fibrosis.. Aims: To determine the effect of PBI-Compound on bleomycin-induced lung fibrosis at the pro-inflammatory/fibrotic cytokine level and histological lesions.. Methods: C57BL/6 mice received bleomycin by intratracheal instillation on day 0, and then were treated with oral administration of PBI-Compound from day 7 to 21. Mice were euthanized on day 21 and protein level of IFN-γ, IL-1β and TNF-α was quantified in the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF).. Results: The results show that intratracheal instillation of bleomycin induced a significant increase in CTGF, IL-1β and TNF-α in BALF. PBI-Compound treatment significantly decreased the amount of CTGF close to the level observed in the control group. IL-1β and TNF-α were also reduced by 20-30%. Regulation of ...

This randomized phase II trial studies paclitaxel and carboplatin to see how well they work compared with bleomycin sulfate, etoposide phosphate, and cisplatin in treating patients with sex cord-ovarian stromal tumors that have spread to other places in the body and usually cannot be cured or controlled with treatment (advanced) or has returned (recurrent). Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) may kill more tumor cells. It is not yet known which chemotherapy regimen is more effective in treating sex cord-ovarian stromal tumors. ...

ZEOCIN RESISTANCE. For Selecting Transfected Cells. To easily select cells that were transfected with our genetic circuit, we required a selectable marker that would work in all of our chassis, particularly HeLa cells and microglia, and would enable us to easily eliminate cells that have not taken up our recombinant plasmid. Zeocin is a widely used glycopeptide antibiotic, a formulation of phleomycin D1. It is capable of binding to and cleaving DNA, leading to cell necrosis in both eukaryotes and aerobic prokaryotes. Commonly outside of cells, in copper-chelated form, zeocin is inactive. When zeocin enters a cell, the Cu2+, which makes it appear blue, is reduced to Cu+ and then removed, activating zeocin, which then intercalates into DNA (Invitrogen). A 375 base pair bacterial gene encodes the Streptoalloteichus hindustanus bleomycin resistance protein (She ble protein). The She ble protein in mammalian cells is predominantly localised at the nucleus, specifically at euchromatin (Calmels et al. ...

This 10-year follow-up study of 91 patients with disseminated testicular nonseminomatous cancer, treated with cisplatin, vinblastine, and bleomycin (PVB) induction chemotherapy and vinblastine plus bleomycin maintenance chemotherapy for a planned period of 2 years, shows a 63% cure rate. The predominant long-term sequelae are neurological and sexual dysfunction in 68% and 40% of patients, respectively. Two patients died of myocardial infarction. Sixteen percent of patients developed hypertension, 23% Raynauds phenomenon, and 25% ototoxicity. Despite the long-term side effects, 90% of the patients who responded to a questionnaire are fully employed. This study shows that the maintenance chemotherapy has contributed to the incidence and/or degree of neurotoxicity, hypertension, and renal function disturbance ...
Exosome isolation and purification. Exosome isolation, purification, and characterization were performed as previously described using iodixanol (OptiPrep) cushion density flotation (19). Briefly, concentrated conditioned media from human BM MSCs or HDFs were floated on an iodixanol cushion and centrifuged for 3.5 hours at 100,000 g at 4°C. The exosome-containing fraction (F9) was used for subsequent in vitro and in vivo experiments after confirming the presence of established exosome markers (ALIX, CD63, CD9, and FLOT1) (19).. Bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis model. Fourteen-week-old mice (C57BL/6 strain, Charles River Laboratories) were anesthetized with isoflurane and received a single endotracheal dose of bleomycin sulphate (50 μL, 3 U/kg) at day 0. Bleomycin naive mice (control) received an endotracheal dose of saline (50 μL). Treated animals received a single i.v. (tail vein) dose of MEx (200 μL; dose, 5 × 106 MSC equivalents; ~8.6 × 108 particles) at day 0. HDF-derived exosomes ...
Methods Skin fibrosis was induced by local injections of bleomycin in two groups of DBA/2J mice. One group was cotreated with the synthetic cannabinoid WIN55,212-2 at 1 mg/kg/day. Skin fibrosis was evaluated by histology and skin thickness and hydroxyproline content were quantified. Markers of fibroblast activation, including α smooth muscle actin and the profibrotic cytokines transforming growth factor (TGF)β, connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) and platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-BB, were examined. Levels of PSMAD2/3, which are crucial in extracellular matrix overproduction, were analysed.. ...
The ED-A splice variant of FN is an important element controlling myofibroblast activation during wound healing and development of fibrosis (Klingberg et al., 2013; Shinde et al., 2015; White et al., 2008). Part of this action appears to be mediated by binding of ED-A FN-specific integrins. Integrins α9β1 and α4β1 recognize the EDGIHEL motif in ED-A FN (Liao et al., 2002; Shinde et al., 2008), and blocking antibodies against α4-integrins reduce the extent of bleomycin-induced lung fibrosis in mice (Gailit et al., 1993; Wang et al., 2000). This effect is likely caused by affecting inflammatory cells that most prominently express α4β1 integrin. The ED-A FN-binding integrin α4β7 has been directly implicated in myofibroblast differentiation of murine lung fibroblasts (Kohan et al., 2011, 2010). ED-A FN−/− mice are protected against bleomycin-induced skin and lung fibrosis (Muro et al., 2003, 2008) but not from experimentally induced liver fibrosis (Olsen et al., 2012). Notably, ED-A ...

We intend to continue our exploration of the bleomycin assay as a biological marker for the development of environmentally induced cancers. The impetus for such efforts would be enhanced through effective integration of cancer screening and intervention to achieve diminished cancer mortality. Currently, we are integrating combining bleomycin sensitivity screening to chemopreventive therapy against second primary malignancies in head and neck cancer patients. Previous studies have demonstrated that cis-retinoic acid, the agent used in our chemopreventive trial, is effective in such circumstances (35). Our purpose is to identify a high-risk subpopulation through application of the bleomycin sensitivity assay and then demonstrate that we can modulate the carcinogenic process with cis-retinoic acid. The use of genetic markers clearly enhances the power and precision of epidemiological research. The preventive implications of precise and valid markers for carcinogen sensitivity are obvious. We are ...

Radioiodinated bleomycin is a useful imaging agent for body tissues. Its production by iodination of bleomycin with radioactive iodide ions in the presence of an oxidizing agent is described.
We have seen the concomittant regression of BIP and onset of focal eosinophilic liver disease (FELD) with eosinophilia. By exclusion diagnosis and thorough pathologic examination, this relationship in time led to the hypothesis of eosinophilic migration. Our understanding of the pathogenesis of BIP is mainly based on data derived from animal studies. Endothelial damage of the lung vasculature by bleomycin-induced free radicals is associated with an acquired loss of bleomycin hydrolase activity and followed by an influx of inflammatory cells [8]. There is a significant correlation between eosinophilia and bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis [9, 10]. Apart from T-lymphocytes, eosinophils are key players in the production of tumor growth factor-β, platelet-derived growth factor receptor-α and tumor necrosis factor-α, leading to proliferation and accumulation of fibroblasts. On their turn, fibroblasts produce chemotactic cytokines recruiting eosinophils [11, 12]. The trigger for the ...
Lung fibrosis (LF) is a chronic and progressive lung disease characterized by pulmonary parenchyma progressive lesion, inflammatory infiltration, and interstitial fibrosis. It is developed by excessive collagen deposition and other cellular matrix components, resulting in severe changes in the alveolar architecture. Considering the absence of effective treatment, the aim of this study was to investigate the effect of photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) on the development of PF. For this purpose, we used C57BL6 mice subjected to induction of LF by bleomycin administration (1.5 U/kg) by orotracheal route and, after 14 days of the induction, mice were treated with PBMT applied to the thorax 1×/day for 8 days (wavelength 660 ± 20 nm, power 100 mW, radiant exposure 5 J/cm2, irradiance 33.3 mW/cm2, spot size 2.8cm2, total energy 15 J, time of irradiation: 150 s) and inflammatory and fibrotic parameters were evaluated with or without PBMT. Our results showed that PBMT significantly reduced the number ...
Suitable animal models of IPF are lacking (Roman et al. 2013) and have been identified as a research priority for the IPF field (White et al. 2016). In our attempt to elucidate the efficacy of GBT1118 drug effects were explored in the most commonly used animal model of lung fibrosis: the bleomycin‐induced model. The results from this in vivo therapeutic study provide support for the potential use in IPF of a molecule that increases Hb-O2 affinity. GBT1118 treatment not only restored arterial O2 to normal levels, but also significantly inhibited the increase in numbers of inflammatory cell infiltrates, reduced collagen in BALF, and resulted in an approximately 50% reduction in fibrosis (histopathological changes in lung tissue). Additionally, GBT1118 administration ameliorated the loss of body weight associated with bleomycin exposure.. Exertional dyspnea and worsening hypoxia associated with hypoxemia are prominent clinical features of IPF progression as fibrosis increases and ...

Blenoxane - What are effects from the bleomycin? Lung function... An important side effect to be aware of with bleomycin is its effects on lung function. Most oncologists will perform pulmonary function tests (pfts) before administration of bleomycin in order to obtain a baseline. During therapy the pfts will be repeated to monitor for a decrease in lung function. If this occurs, sometimes the dosing of bleomycin will be changed or it will be stopped altogether.

Introduction: In a Phase II clinical trial, 12 months treatment with nintedanib (BIBF 1120) reduced the rate of decline in FVC in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) by 68.4% versus placebo, which approached statistical significance.. Aim: To explore its mode of action, nintedanib was tested in a preventive and therapeutic mouse model of lung inflammation and fibrosis.. Methods: Lung fibrosis was induced in mice by a single intratracheal administration of bleomycin. Nintedanib was administered by gavage q.d. at 30 mg/kg or 60 mg/kg from day 0 to day 14 (preventive treatment) or from day 7 to 21 (therapeutic treatment).. Results: After 14 days, bleomycin caused increased macrophages and lymphocytes in the BALF and elevated IL-1β, TIMP-1 and collagen levels in the lung. Histology revealed chronic inflammation and fibrosis. At day 21, the pathology was very similar to day 14, but histology revealed slightly increased inflammation and fibrosis and TIMP-1 levels were nearly doubled. ...
Regarding specific causal agents, bleomycin has the strongest association with RP. In a study of 395 patients with good-risk nonseminomas randomized to receive 4 cycles of etoposide and cisplatin with (BEP) or without bleomycin (EP), 8% of patients in the BEP arm developed acute RP compared with none in the EP arm.23 Vinblastine and cisplatin have also been implicated as contributing to this toxicity.15-18 For example, higher rates of digital ischemia were identified in patients treated with cisplatin compared with those who were not (41% vs. 21%).14 The cumulative dose of chemotherapy and the prevalence of conventional risk factors for peripheral arterial disease, such as hypertension or smoking, may also play a role.15,16. In vitro studies and laboratory findings further support a direct mechanism of cardiovascular disease through chemotherapy-induced endothelial dysfunction. For example, exposure of endothelial cells to cisplatin or bleomycin in vitro leads to endothelial cell cytokine ...
Abnormal repair and dysregulated angiogenesis have been implicated in the pathogenesis of pulmonary fibrosis, but the underlying mechanisms of regulation are not well understood.

So as to far better fully grasp the toxic response of some cell types to L action, we wished to examine the influence on the various elements of L and whether or not every one of the adverse consequences of L expression are resulting from the endonuclease exercise. Induction of double stranded DNA breaks has become observed with all the expression of the two full length L and L ORF . For the reason that scientific studies about the splicing of L mRNA show that lots of cells express a splice product capable of expressing only L ORF , we measured the impact of the two L and L ORF inside a cellular proliferation assay . A zeocin resistanceexpressing plasmid, in conjunction with L associated or manage plasmids are cotransfected. These transfected cells are then picked with zeocin, to be sure that only cells transfected with L are assayed, followed by a quantification of viable cells. Consequently, something that prospects to cell death, or alters the cellular proliferation fee, will likely be ...
