Treatments based on pharmacological inhibition of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1) have been suggested for a broad variety of human disorders, including Parkinson's disease (PD). The neuroprotective effects underlying the efficacy of PARP-1 inhibitors in PD models suggest a role for PARP-1 in neurodegeneration. In this study, we assessed the efficacy(More)
BACKGROUND A considerable amount of experimental and clinical data prove the cytoprotective effect of amifostine on normal tissue exposed to different types of antineoplastic treatments. The present study examines its influence on the short-term toxicity of either radiotherapy alone or combined radio-chemotherapy in patients with advanced head and neck(More)
Because of its strong genetic validation, NaV1.7 has attracted significant interest as a target for the treatment of pain. We have previously reported on a number of structurally distinct bicyclic heteroarylsulfonamides as NaV1.7 inhibitors that demonstrate high levels of selectivity over other NaV isoforms. Herein, we report the discovery and optimization(More)
Several reports have recently emerged regarding the identification of heteroarylsulfonamides as NaV1.7 inhibitors that demonstrate high levels of selectivity over other NaV isoforms. The optimization of a series of internal NaV1.7 leads that address a number of metabolic liabilities including bioactivation, PXR activation, as well as CYP3A4 induction and(More)
