INTRODUCTION 5-Loxin is a novel Boswellia serrata extract enriched with 30% 3-O-acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid (AKBA), which exhibits potential anti-inflammatory properties by inhibiting the 5-lipoxygenase enzyme. A 90-day, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy and safety of 5-Loxin in the treatment of(More)
BACKGROUND Digalloyl-resveratrol (di-GA) is a synthetic compound aimed to combine the biological effects of the plant polyhydroxy phenols gallic acid and resveratrol, which are both radical scavengers and cyclooxygenase inhibitors exhibiting anticancer activity. Their broad spectrum of activities may probably be due to adjacent free hydroxyl groups. (More)
Cryptophycin-8 was prepared by the conversion of the epoxide group on cryptophycin-1 to a chlorohydrin. In the studies reported here, cryptophycin-8 was evaluated for preclinical activity against subcutaneous tumors of both mouse and human origin. At the highest non-toxic single course treatment, the following results were obtained (Table A). Cryptophycin-8(More)
Historically, many new anticancer agents were first detected in a prescreen; usually consisting of a molecular/biochemical target or a cellular cytotoxicity assay. The agent then progressed to in vivo evaluation against transplanted human or mouse tumors. If the investigator had a large drug supply and ample resources, multiple tests were possible, with(More)
The biosynthesis of the unusual amino acid 4-methylproline in the Nostoc genus of cyanobacteria was investigated on the genetic and enzymatic level. Two genes involved in the biosynthesis were cloned and the corresponding enzymes, a zinc-dependent long-chain dehydrogenase and a Delta(1)-pyrroline-5-carboxylic acid (P5C) reductase homologue, were(More)
Although the anti-cancer effects of curcumin has been shown in various cancer cell types, in vitro, pre-clinical and clinical studies showed only a limited efficacy, even at high doses. This is presumably due to low bioavailability in both plasma and tissues, particularly due to poor intracellular accumulation. A variety of methods have been developed to(More)
There is significant number of evidences suggesting the anti-inflammatory properties of gum resin extracts of Boswellia serrata containing 3-O-acetyl-11-keto-β-boswellic acid (AKBA) and their promising potential as therapeutic interventions against inflammatory diseases such as osteoarthritis (OA). Unfortunately, the poor bioavailability of AKBA following(More)
A demethylated derivative of curcumin (DC; 67.8% bisdemethylcurcumin, 20.7% demethylmonodemethoxycurcumin, 5.86% bisdemethoxycurcumin, 2.58% demethylcurcumin) was prepared by using a 95% extract of curcumin (C(95); 72.2% curcumin, 18.8% monodemethoxycurcumin, 4.5% bisdemethoxycurcumin). DC increased glutathione and reduced reactive oxygen species (ROS) in(More)
Both the PC-3 and the TSU-PR1 prostate tumor models were found to be satisfactory for chemotherapeutic investigations in ICR-SCID mice. The 30 to 60 mg fragments implanted took in all mice (as judged by 100% takes in the controls of all experiments as well as the passage mice). The tumor volume doubling time was 4.0 days for PC-3 and 2.5 days for TSU-Pr1.(More)
Cryptophycin-38 (2), -326 (3), and -327 (4) are three new trace constituents of the terrestrial cyanobacterium Nostoc sp. GSV 224. Cryptophycin-38 is a stereoisomer of cryptophycin-1 (1) and to date is the only naturally occurring analogue that possesses a S,S epoxide group in unit A. Cryptophycin-327 is a geometric isomer that differs from 1 in having a(More)
