OBJECTIVES Several natural polymorphisms in the genes for the human CC-chemokine receptors CCR5 and CCR2 are associated with HIV-1 disease. The CCR2-64I genetic variant [a G to A substitution resulting in a valine (V) to isoleucine (I) change at position 64] is in strong linkage disequilibrium with a mutation within the CCR5 regulatory region (CCR5-59653T).(More)
Genotoxic drugs constitute a major treatment modality for human cancers; however, cancer cells' intrinsic DNA repair capability often increases the threshold of lethality and renders these drugs ineffective. The emerging roles of HDACs in DNA repair provide new opportunities for improving traditional genotoxic drugs. Here, we report the development and(More)
During quality control of doxofylline, a novel impurity was detected, which was above the identification threshold defined by ICH. First, a liquid chromatographic method compatible with mass spectrometric (MS) detection was developed. Based on tandem multistage MS and high resolution MS data, the unknown impurity was found to consist of two theophylline(More)
A simple and sensitive method was developed for characterization of two impurities from commercial bendazac lysine eye drops, by using liquid chromatography combined with electrospray ionization and QTOF mass analyzer (LC-ESI-QTOF MS/MS). A known impurity was characterized rapidly by comparison with the retention time and MS/MS data of the reference(More)
