D-3,4-Dihydroxyphenylalanine (D-dopa) and L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-dopa) induced circling in rats with a unilateral 6-hydroxydopamine lesion of substantia nigra with similar potency. D-Dopa is not a substrate for aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase, the enzyme which metabolizes L-dopa to dopamine. This raises the question of how D-dopa has behavioral(More)
We report the application of phosphoramidate pronucleotide (ProTide) technology to the antiviral agent carbocyclic L-d4A (L-Cd4A). The phenyl methyl alaninyl parent ProTide of L-Cd4A was prepared by Grignard-mediated phosphorochloridate reaction and resulted in a compound with significantly improved anti-HIV (2600-fold) and HBV activity. We describe(More)
Pharmacokinetic studies were performed with two different 111In-labeled F(ab)2 fragments of an anti-CEA murine monoclonal immunoglobulin G (Immun-14). Unmodified F(ab)2 and modified Fab-BMH-Fab fragments were compared in nude mice bearing a LS-174T human colon carcinoma tumor xenograft. Tumor accumulation is significantly higher for modified fragments than(More)
Unmodified F(ab')2 and modified Fab'-BMH-Fab' fragments of human monoclonal IgM (16.88) were compared for biodistribution and tumor localization in nude mice bearing LS-174T human colon carcinoma xenografts. Although both unmodified and modified fragments of IgM cleared rapidly from the blood, the radioactivity retentions for each fragment in liver and(More)
