A panel of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs commonly used for therapeutic purposes was assessed for their effects on the respiratory burst of isolated human polymorphonuclear neutrophils. Cells were stimulated with opsonised yeast and the production of reactive oxygen species was measured by amplified chemiluminescence with luminol and lucigenin which(More)
Performing the deoxyribose (DR) assay for determination of the rate constants for reaction of non steroidal antiinflammatory drugs with hydroxyl radicals led to some unusual competition plots. The molecules from the arylpropionic family of drugs: ibuprofen, flurbiprofen, ketoprofen and naproxen produced the linear relationship. However, acemetacin,(More)
Serum thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS), Zn, Cu, and Se concentrations were determined in 47 healthy adults and in patients with diseases, such as renal in sufficiency, insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, chronic pancreatitis, liver cirrhosis, or cancer, in order to clarify the relationship between this indicator of lipid peroxidation and(More)
In lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or cystic fibrosis, the activation of phagocytic cells produces high amounts of cytotoxic reactive oxygen species (ROS) that are partly implicated in the pathogenic process. In this study, the ex vivo antioxidant activity of nacystelyn (NAL), a recently developed mucoactive(More)
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) were investigated for their ability to affect the chlorinating activity of human myeloperoxidase and to scavenge HOCl, the main myeloperoxidase system product. Fourteen drugs representative of various NSAIDs families were tested with the chlorination of taurine used as a detection system. All were unable to(More)
The established horseradish peroxidase/guaiacol in an in vitro assay system was used for investigation of the reactivity of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs with hydrogen peroxide. Although the drugs rapidly seemed to react in the selected conditions, difficulties were encountered in attempts to quantify the reaction and an interaction with horseradish(More)
