BACKGROUND Tumors are diseases characterized by uncontrolled cell growth and, in spite of the progress of medicine over the years, continue to represent a major threat to the health, requiring new therapies. Several synthetic compounds, such as those derived from natural sources, have been identified as anticancer drugs; among these compounds quinone(More)
The frequency and function of regulatory T-cells (Tregs) in multiple myeloma (MM) are still matter of debate. The percentage and absolute number of circulating Tregs (CD4(+)CD25(+high  density)CD127(-/low  density)) from 39 patients with untreated MM and 44 patients with monoclonal gammopathies of uncertain significance (MGUS) were tested and compared with(More)
A focused N-substituted 3-(2-piperazin-1-yl-2-oxoethyl)-2-(pyridin-2-yl)iso-indolin-1-ones small library was synthesized for modulation of GABA-A receptor function and compared to Zopiclone for the ability to increase GABA-activated chloride currents. All compounds were tested for their effects on GABA-activated chloride currents in rat cerebellar granule(More)
A novel series of bicyclo[1.1.1]pentane-based omega-acidic amino acids, including (2S)- and (2R)-3-(3'-carboxybicyclo[1.1.1]pentyl)alanines (8 and 9), (2S)- and (2R)-2-(3'-carboxymethylbicyclo[1.1.1]pentyl)glycines (10 and 11), and (2S)- and (2R)-3-(3'-phosphonomethylbicyclo[1.1.1]pentyl)glycines (12 and 13), were synthesized and evaluated as glutamate(More)
The first series of 2'-substituted 2-(3'-carboxybicyclo[1.1.1]pentyl)glycine derivatives, (2R)- and (2S)-(2',2'-dichloro-3'-carboxybicyclo[1.1.1]pentyl)glycine (10) and (11), and 2-(2'-chloro-3'-carboxybicyclo[1.1.1]pentyl)glycine (12) were synthesized and evaluated as mGluR ligands. Compounds 11 and 12 were shown to be competitive group I mGluR(More)
