The aim of the present work is to characterize (both in vitro and in vivo) the influence of TNP-470 on different cell functions involved in angiogenesis and, more particularly, on endothelial cell growth, cell migration and vessel formation. In addition, a possible direct anti-tumor activity was investigated. To this end, we made use in vitro of human(More)
Resveratrol, a phytoalexin found in grapes and wines, has been reported to exhibit a wide range of pharmacological properties and is believed to play a role in the prevention of human cardiovascular disease (the so-called 'French paradox'). This molecule may also play a major role in both cancer prevention and therapy. In this review article we summarize(More)
The nuclear enzymes DNA topoisomerases I and II appeared as cellular targets for several antitumor drugs: campthotecin derivatives interacting with topoisomerase I, and actinomycin D, anthracycline derivatives, elliptinium acetate, mitoxantrone, epipodophyllotoxine derivatives, amsacrine and a new olivacine derivative, NSC-6596871 (S 16020-2), which(More)
Topoisomerase I (Topo I) is overexpressed in cancer colon tissues compared with normal colon tissues. Several anti-Topo I inhibitors are already successfully used in the clinic. We illustrate here the antiproliferative activity of a new class of Topo I inhibitors, i.e., E-ring-modified camptothecins with enhanced lactone stability (L. Lesueur-Ginot et al.,(More)
BACKGROUND Opioid analgesics may be a useful alternative in patients with osteoarthritis who have not responded to first-line treatment with acetaminophen and in whom nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are contraindicated, ineffective, or poorly tolerated. OBJECTIVE This study compared the efficacy and tolerability of tramadol LP 200 mg, a new(More)
S16020-2, a new olivacine derivative and a topoisomerase II inhibitor, has recently entered clinical trials. New analogues and derivatives have been synthesized from the S16020-2 compound. Preliminary data indicate that S30972-1, one of these S16020-2 derivatives, may exhibit a comparatively higher level of antitumor potency associated with an improved(More)
AIMS To compare the pharmacokinetic profile of a new modified release formulation of tramadol (Tramadol LP 200 mg, SMB Technology, Marche-en-Famenne, Belgium) with that of an immediate release capsule (Topalgic) 50 mg, Grünenthal, Aachen, Germany) after single and multiple dosing and to assess the potential effect of food on its relative bioavailability.

From cytotoxic extracts of the roots of Scrophularia ningpoensis Hemsl. (Scrophulariaceae) a new sugar ester, ningposide D (3-O-acetyl-2-O-p-methoxycinnamoyl-alpha(beta)-L-rhamnopyranose) (1) and a new iridoid glycoside, scrophuloside B4 (6-O-(2''-O-acetyl-3''-O-cinnamoyl-4''-O-p-methoxycinnamoyl-alpha-L-rhamnopyranosyl) catalpol) (2) along with known(More)
The bioassay-guided fractionation of the dichloromethane extract of aerial parts of Plumbago zeylanica led to the isolation of beta-sitosterol, beta-sitosteryl-3beta-glucopyranoside, beta-sitosteryl-3beta-glucopyranoside-6'-O-palmitate (1), lupenone, lupeol acetate, plumbagin and trilinolein. Compound 1 showed cytotoxic activity against MCF7 and Bowes(More)
From cytotoxic extracts of the roots of Disporopsis aspera Engl. (Liliaceae) a homoisoflavanone, disporopsin (3-(2',4'-dihydroxy-benzyl)-5,7-dihydroxy-chroman-4-one) (1) and three rare methyl-homoisoflavanones, 3-(4'-hydroxy-benzyl)-5,7-dihydroxy-6-methyl-chroman-4-one (2), 3-(4'-hydroxy-benzyl)-5,7-dihydroxy-6,8-dimethyl-chroman-4-one (3) and(More)
