Podophyllotoxin (PPT), as well as its congeners and derivatives, exhibits pronounced biological activities, especially antineoplastic effects. Its strong inhibitory effect on tumor cell growth led to the development of three of the most highly prescribed anticancer drugs in the world, etoposide, teniposide, and the water-soluble prodrug etoposide phosphate.(More)
BACKGROUND Benzophenone hydrazone derivatives are among the most important classes of synthetic insecticides. In an effort to discover new molecules with good insecticidal/acaricidal activities, a series of novel benzophenone hydrazone N-acylated thiourea and urea derivatives was synthesized and bioassayed. RESULTS All of these compounds exhibited(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the protective effects of the n-butanol extract of Potentilla anserina L. (NP) on pituitrin-induced acute myocardial ischemic injury in mice. METHODS Ninety healthy female mice were randomly divided into normal control group, untreated group, Salvia miltiorrhiza group and low-, medium- and high-dose NP groups. Except for the(More)
A series of novel 7-(N-substituted-methyl)-camptothecin derivatives was designed, synthesized, and evaluated for in vitro cytotoxicity against four human tumor cell lines, A-549, MDA-MB-231, KB, and KBvin. All of the derivatives showed promising in vitro cytotoxic activity against the tested tumor cell lines, with IC50 values ranging from 0.0023 to 1.11 μM,(More)
A series of novel spin-labeled 4β-[(4-substituted)-1,2,3-triazol-1-yl]podophyllotoxin derivatives (17a–h) were firstly designed and synthesized with significant regioselectivity by employing Cu(I) catalyzed click approach, and evaluated for cytotoxicity against four human tumor cell lines (A-549, DU145, KB, and KBvin). Among them, compound 17h displayed the(More)
Three novel series of N3-substituted imidacloprid derivatives were designed and synthesized, and their structures were identified on the basis of satisfactory analytical and spectral ((1)H NMR, (13)C NMR, MS, elemental analysis, and X-ray) data. Preliminary bioassays indicated that all of the derivatives exhibited significant insecticidal activities against(More)
We have modified the mitral repair technique in infants and small children by using autologous pericardial strips to treat mitral regurgitation resulting from a dilated mitral annulus. Our results demonstrate that this technique maintains stability and flexibility of the mitral annulus and decreases the risk of mitral stenosis.
Spin-labeled podophyllotoxins have elicited widespread interest due to their far superior antitumor activity compared to podophyllotoxin. To extend our prior studies in this research area, we synthesized a new generation of spin-labeled podophyllotoxin analogs via isocyanide multicomponent reactions and evaluated their cytotoxicity against four human cancer(More)
A three dimensional supramolecular hydrogel consisting of prodrug-modified graphene oxide and α-cyclodextrin was developed. This hydrogel with a well-ordered interior microstructure integrated hydrophobic and hydrophilic anticancer drugs into a single multifunctional platform, and underwent a gel-sol transition leading to cascade release of two drugs in an(More)
The development of coating materials for neural interfaces has been a pursued to improve the electrical, mechanical and biological performances. For these goals, a bioactive coating was developed in this work featuring a poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT)/carbon nanotube (CNT) composite and covalently bonded YIGSR and RGD. Its biological effect and(More)
