The long-lasting protective effect of dexrazoxane (ADR-529) against doxorubicin- and epirubicin-induced cardiotoxicity was evaluated in the multiple-dose 35-wk rat model. Groups of 36 male Sprague-Dawley rats were given ADR-529 30 min before administration of cardiotoxic doses of doxorubicin (1 mg/kg/wk) or epirubicin (1.13 mg/kg/wk). The compounds were(More)
Young pre-hypertensive rats of the Milan strain (MHS) have a faster glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and a higher urine flow in vivo than matched normotensive controls (MNS). Kidneys from both MHS and MNS at different ages were perfused in vitro with cell-free artificial medium, in order to further clarify the nature of these differences, in the absence of(More)
In the present study, 1 single-dose and 1 multiple-dose models were applied in studying 4'-iodo-4'-deoxydoxorubicin (I-DX) cardiotoxicity. Anthracycline cardiotoxicity has been reproduced in several animals including mice, rats, hamsters, rabbits, dogs, and monkeys. Of these species the rat can be considered the most suitable species for the study of(More)
Dexrazoxane [(DZR), ADR 529, ICRF-187] ameliorates doxorubicin (DOX)-induced cardiotoxicity in animals, and is recommended as a cardioprotectant in patients receiving cumulative doses of DOX above 300 mg/m2. A DZR:DOX dose ratio of 10:1 is recommended based on studies in patients receiving 50 mg/m2. Since DOX may be used at much higher doses in certain(More)
