BACKGROUND We previously synthesized a novel s-triazine derivative, ZSTK474 [2-(2-difluoromethylbenzimidazol-1-yl)-4,6-dimorpholino-1,3,5-triazine], that strongly inhibited the growth of tumor cells. We identified its molecular target, investigated its effects on cellular signaling pathways, and examined its antitumor efficacy and toxicity in vivo. (More)
We have previously shown that intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) infusion of amyloid-beta (Abeta)1-40 produces oxidative stress and cholinergic dysfunction, as well as learning and memory deficits, in rats. In the present study, effects of a newly synthesized azaindolizinone derivative, spiro[imidazo[1,2-a]pyridine-3,2-indan]-2(3H)-one (ZSET1446), were(More)
Antiamnesic effects of a newly synthesized azaindolizinone derivative ZSET845 were assessed in rats made learning ability deficient by amyloid-beta (Abeta)25-35 treatment. Intracerebroventricular injection of Abeta25-35 induced a marked decrease in step-through latency in passive avoidance task and reduction in choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) activity in(More)
1. Several neuroleptics inhibited the 3 microM gamma-aminobutyric acid induced-chloride current (GABA-current) on dissociated rat dorsal root ganglion neurons in whole-cell patch-clamp investigations. 2. The IC(50) for clozapine, zotepine, olanzapine, risperidone and chlorpromazine were 6.95, 18.26, 20.30, 106.01 and 114.56 microM, respectively. The values(More)
We have previously shown that intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) infusion of amyloid-! (A!)1–40 produces oxidative stress and cholinergic dysfunction, as well as learning and memory deficits, in rats. In the present study, effects of a newly synthesized azaindolizinone derivative, spiro[imidazo[1,2-a]pyridine-3,2-indan]-2(3H)-one (ZSET1446), were assessed in(More)
The relationship between clinical parameters and pathological changes was investigated in an animal model of mononeuropathy, by behavioral, electrophysiological and histopathological methods. Mononeuropathy was induced in rats by loosely tying ligatures around the sciatic nerve. Eighty-four rats were used, and these were divided into fourteen groups to(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the short-term response of cell kinetics of growth plate chondrocytes under conditions of warm ischemia and reperfusion. To understand the time-course changes that occur after reperfusion, 0 and 6 h of warm ischemia was produced in the right hindlimb of 35-day-old Wistar rats by isolating the vascular pedicle occlusion.(More)
The senescence accelerated prone mouse strain 8 (SAMP8) develops age-related deficits in learning and memory. Effects of the azaindolizinone derivative ZSET1446/ST101, a newly synthesized cognitive enhancer, on cognitive impairment and deposition of amyloid β (Aβ) were assessed in the SAMP8. ZSET1446 was administered in drinking water at estimated(More)
We have investigated the effect of azelastine on bronchial responsiveness in 25 asthmatics, using methacholine inhalation challenge, (Astograph). Three parameters, initial respiratory resistance (RrsC), bronchial sensitivity (Dmin), and bronchial reactivity (SGrs/GrsC) were studied. After 8 weeks' treatment with 2 mg azelastine b.i.d., Dmin was increased(More)
