We hypothesized that adenosine, known to be release from inflammatory sites, could lessen the potentially damaging activity of neutrophils (PMN) primed by tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF alpha) at sites of infection. We investigated the effect of adenosine on PMN primed with cell-free medium from mononuclear leukocytes (MNL) that had been treated with(More)
The 2,4-disubstituted and 2,3,4-trisubstituted brominated pyrroles were successfully prepared and demonstrated potent cytotoxicity against the growth of suspended murine and human tumors, i.e. leukemia and lymphomas, acute monocytic leukemia, and HeLa-S3 uterine carcinoma. The brominated compounds were more selective in inhibiting the growth of tumors(More)
4-Carbethoxy-1-methyl-2-phenacyl-3-phenylpyrrole (9), 4-carbethoxy-2-(4-methoxybenzoyl)-3-(4-methoxyphenyl)pyrrole (10) and 2-(4-methoxybenzoyl)-3,4-bis-(4-methoxyphenyl)pyrrole (11) proved to be potent cytotoxic agents against the growth of murine and human leukemias and lymphomas. Selective toxicity was demonstrated against the growth of solid tumors,(More)
Poly(phenolic)-sulfonates demonstrated very good cytotoxicity against the growth of tumor cell lines (L1210, Tmolt-(3), HeLa-S(3)) and are comparable in potency with typical clinically used anticancer drugs. Four of the most active compounds, i.e. GL-2021, GL-2029, GL-2041 and GL-2063, were selected for a mode of action study in L1210 lymphoid leukemia(More)
The aliphatic dicarboxylic acid surprisingly afforded potent cytotoxicity and in vivo antineoplastic activity. The agents were active against the growth of a variety of leukemias, lymphomas, and suspended HeLa uterine carcinoma. Suppression of growth of cell lines derived from human solid cancers, e.g. SW-480 colon adenocarcinoma, lung MB- 9812, glioma(More)
