OBJECTIVE Nitric oxide (NO) possesses antitumour activity. It induces differentiation and apoptosis in acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) cells. The NO prodrug O(2) -(2,4-dinitrophenyl)1-((4-ethoxycarbonyl)piperazin-1-yl)diazen-1-ium-1,2-diolate, or JS-K, has potent antileukaemic activity. JS-K is also active in vitro and in vivo against multiple myeloma,(More)
INTRODUCTION Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a clonal hematological malignancy characterized by accumulation of poorly differentiated and immature blast cells in bone marrow and blood circulation. The initiation of intensive chemotherapy is necessary to control further progression of the disease. Therapeutic success is less common in older patients (> 65(More)
O2-(2,4-dinitrophenyl)1-[(4-ethoxycarbonyl)piperazin-1-yl]diazen-1-ium-1,2-diolate] or JS-K is a nitric oxide-producing prodrug of the arylated diazeniumdiolate class with promising anti-tumor activity. JS-K has challenging solubility and stability properties. We aimed to characterize and compare Pluronic® P123-formulated JS-K (P123/JS-K) with free JS-K. We(More)
