Masitinib is the first veterinary drug recently approved in Europe to treat mast cell tumours in dogs (Hahn et al. JVIM, Masivet). This inhibitor is selective and highly efficient in blocking c-Kit, PDGFR, and Lyn tyrosine kinase activities. It showed good efficacy and acceptable toxicity in several animal studies such as mice, rats, rabbits and dogs(More)
Following a screening program for orally active antithrombotic drugs, it was found that a series of thioxyloside compounds presented with good venous antithrombotic properties. Of more than 500 compounds, LF 09-0055, LF 04-0212, and LF 05-0030 were the most active at inhibiting venous thrombus formation in the rat and rabbit Wessler model after intravenous(More)
PURPOSE Tadenan (DEBAT, Paris, France) is a pharmaceutical agent used in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The specific aim of this study was to determine if pretreatment of rabbits with Tadenan reduced either the hypertrophic response of the bladder to partial outlet obstruction or the accompanying contractile dysfunction. MATERIALS(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the effect of Tadenan (TAD; Pygeum africanum extract) pretreatment on the micturition characteristics of conscious and anesthetized rats consequent to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) administration and to examine the influence of such treatment on the growth of the prostate. METHODS Studies using 40 adult Sprague-Dawley male rats were(More)
PURPOSE Tadenan is a pharmaceutical agent used in the treatment of BPH. Prior studies demonstrated that pretreatment of rabbits with Tadenan significantly reduced the contractile dysfunction following two weeks of partial outlet obstruction. The specific aim of the present study was to determine the effect of Tadenan pretreatment on the time course of the(More)
A series of (benzoylphenyl)piperidines has been synthesized and evaluated for activity as immunomodulators. Several of these compounds show good activity in primary screening on the basis of the lymphocytes mitogenic response to Con A, PHA, and PWM. A chloro group in position 4 of the benzoyl moiety as well as an amino group (or a carbamate derivative) para(More)
OBJECTIVES Pretreatment with oral tadenan (TAD) has been shown to possess a protective effect on bladder dysfunction-induced obstruction. We evaluated the functional influence of cotreatment and post-treatment with oral TAD on the frequency/volume characteristics of micturition of conscious rats stimulated with exogenous dihydrotestosterone (DHT) to induce(More)
BACKGROUND Tadenan (a Pygeum africanum extract) is a drug used in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia. Its effects on prostate fibroblast proliferation and bladder function after partial outlet obstruction have been demonstrated in various pharmacological studies. However, its effects at the molecular level are poorly documented. METHODS Tadenan(More)
A series of glycosylated derivatives of benzophenone, benzhydrol, and benzhydril has been synthesized and evaluated for potential activity as venous antithrombotic agents. Studies on structure-activity relationships revealed that compounds having an electron-withdrawing group in the benzhydril or benzhydrol moiety, and specifically those having the(More)
Treatment of the 2,3-isopropylidene acetal of the title dithioxyloside with 2,4,5-triiodoimidazole-PPh3 caused replacement of the 4-hydroxyl group by iodine to afford 82% of the 4-axial iodide 6, converted by base into 4-cyanophenyl 2,3-O-isopropylidene-1,5-dithio-beta-D-glycero-pent-3-enopyranoside++ + (8). Acid treatment of 8 gave 87% of the deacetonated(More)
