Inhibitors of the molecular chaperone heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) are currently generating significant interest in clinical development as potential treatments for cancer. In a preceding publication (DOI: 10.1021/jm100059d ) we describe Astex's approach to screening fragments against Hsp90 and the subsequent optimization of two hits into leads with(More)
Inhibitors of the chaperone Hsp90 are potentially useful as chemotherapeutic agents in cancer. This paper describes an application of fragment screening to Hsp90 using a combination of NMR and high throughput X-ray crystallography. The screening identified an aminopyrimidine with affinity in the high micromolar range and subsequent structure-based design(More)
Five confirmed cases of canine blastomycosis occurred over the 10-month period of December 1983 to September 1984 in a south-eastern Wisconsin colony of 30 dogs maintained for sled competition. Contrary to other published reports of canine blastomycosis, the sex-specific attack rates were higher among females than males. Four of the five confirmed cases and(More)
The in vitro effects of prostaglandin E1 (PGE1), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), indomethacin, histamine, and tuftsin on the chemiluminescence response of bovine polymorphonuclear cells (PMN) were determined. Addition of PGE1, PGE2, indomethacin, and histamine in vitro significantly suppressed the chemiluminescence response of bovine PMN's, whereas tuftsin had no(More)
It is generally believed that canine parvovirus (CPV) is immunosuppressive and that immunosuppression plays an important role in the pathogenesis of canine parvovirus disease. However, there is little experimental evidence to support this assertion. The effects of virulent and vaccine strains of CPV on natural effector (NE) cell activity, antibody-dependent(More)
The effects of several commercially available polyvalent canine vaccines on the immune system of the dog were examined. The results demonstrated that the polyvalent vaccines used in this study significantly suppressed the absolute lymphocyte count and that most of the polyvalent vaccines significantly suppressed lymphocyte response to mitogen, but had no(More)
A group of novel synthetic indoloisoquinolines was prepared and its potential as a novel series of small-molecule anti-malarial leads was assessed. The structure-activity relationship on variation of three distinct regions of chemical space was investigated. A lead compound was generated with an activity close to that observed for a known anti-malarial(More)
The effects of corticosteroids on the chemiluminescence response of bovine phagocytic cells were determined both in vitro and in vivo. The in vitro addition of hydrocortisone or dexamethasone had no significant effect on the chemiluminescence response of leukocytes in a whole blood or purified polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN) population. Cattle that(More)
