Purpose: Hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1), the central mediator of the cellular response to low oxygen, functions as a transcription factor for a broad range of genes that provide adaptive responses to oxygen deprivation. HIF-1 is overexpressed in cancer and has become an important therapeutic target in solid tumors. In this study, a novel HIF-1α(More)
The development of novel strategies for the treatment of malignancies by successful intervention in advanced stage disease is a major challenge in oncology. We tested the hypothesis that this can be achieved by the rational design of taxoid onium salts modified at C-7 and C-2' positions. The characterization of these molecules revealed a dramatically(More)
Purpose: The hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) plays a critical role in tumor adaptation to hypoxia, and its elevated expression correlates with poor prognosis and treatment failure in patients with cancer. In this study, we determined whether 3,4-dimethoxy-N-[(2,2-dimethyl-2H-chromen-6-yl)methyl]-N-phenylbenzenesulfonamide, KCN1, the lead inhibitor in a(More)
Compounds were evaluated for antiviral activity in rhabdomyosarcoma (RD) cells against a recent 2014 clinical isolate of enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), a 1962 strain of EV-68D, rhinovirus 87 (RV-87, serologically the same as EV-D68), and enterovirus 71 (EV-71). Test substances included known-active antipicornavirus agents (enviroxime, guanidine HCl, pirodavir,(More)
