Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is an organic sulfur-containing compound which has been used as a dietary supplement for osteoarthritis. MSM has been shown to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, as well as exhibit apoptotic or anti-apoptotic effects depending on the cell type or activating stimuli. However, there are still a lot of unknowns about the(More)
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a non-toxic, natural organosulfur compound, which is known to possess antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. In recent years, MSM has been widely used as a dietary supplement for its beneficial effects against various diseases, especially arthritis. Despite being a popular supplement product, the mechanism of action of(More)
In this study, novel N-(3,5,5,8,8-pentamethyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydronaphthalene-2-yl)-carboxamide (6-15) and 5,5,8,8-tetramethyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydronaphthalene-2-carboxamide (16-32) derivatives were synthesized and their in vitro effects at 5 μM and 50 μM concentrations on proliferation and nitric oxide (NO*) production in lipopolysaccharide (LPS) activated RAW(More)
The synthesis and lipid peroxidation (LP) inhibition activity of several novel indole melatonin analogues are reported. Compounds have shown variable antioxidant features depending on the substitution pattern. Melatonin and the antioxidant reference compound butyl hydroxy toluen (BHT) were used to compare the antioxidant capability of the compounds(More)
The aim of the study was to examine antioxidant properties of conjugates based on indole and lipoic acid moieties. The design and syntheses of novel indole alpha-lipoic acid derivatives were performed. The antioxidant properties of target compounds were investigated using rat liver microsomal, NADPH-dependent lipid peroxidation inhibition. Some of the(More)
Alpha-lipoic acid (α-lipoic acid) is a potent antioxidant compound that has been shown to possess anti-inflammatory effects. RAW 264.7 macrophages produce various inflammatory mediators such as nitric oxide, IL-1β, IL-6 and TNF-alpha upon activation with LPS (Lipopolysaccharide) and IFNγ (interferon gamma). In this study, the effect of 12 synthetic indole(More)
BACKGROUND Retinoids are synthetic and naturally occurring derivatives of vitamin A (retinol) which have been suggested to mediate inhibition of cancer cell growth and apoptosis. It has been reported that all trans retinoic acid (ATRA) exhibited suppressive effects on different types of leukemia including chronic myelogenous leukemia. OBJECTIVE In the(More)
