P450 reductase (NADPH:cytochrome P450 reductase, EC 1.6.2.4) is known to be important in the reductive activation of the benzotriazene-di-N-oxide tirapazamine (SR 4233). Using a panel of six human breast adenocarcinoma cell lines we have examined the relationship between P450 reductase activity and sensitivity to tirapazamine. The toxicity of tirapazamine(More)
As part of an 'enzyme-directed' approach to bioreductive drug development, we have measured the activity of NADH: cytochrome b5 reductase (B5R) in human cancer cell lines in order to assess the role of this enzyme in activating bioreductive drugs, and thus in influencing the cytotoxicity of these compounds. At present, there is no validated assay reported(More)
BACKGROUND Prevention guidelines for infants at high risk of allergic disease recommend hydrolysed formula if formula is introduced before 6 months, but evidence is mixed. Adding specific oligosaccharides may improve outcomes. OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether partially hydrolysed whey formula containing oligosaccharides (0.8 g/100 ml) (pHF-OS) can prevent(More)
