  journal={International Urology and Nephrology},
Results are presented for 148 patients to assess the clinical efficacy and safety of a new antiinflammatory metalloprotein drug, generic name Orgotein. The drug was not only well tolerated upon systemic administration, but also was found to be completely safe without any side effects as administrated by special routes of administration, such as instillation into the tunica vaginalis, intramurally by needle catheter into the bladder wall, and locally into the plaques of induratio penis plastica… 

Studies on the clinical and laboratory pharmacology of drug formulations of bovine Cu—Zn superoxide dismutases (orgotein)

Orgotein is a new anti-inflammatory agent which is completely different from all other drugs presently used for the treatment of inflammatory disease, and is a protein which is unusually resistant to denaturants and to proteolytic enzymes near neutral pH.

L-SOD seems to be applaisable for the treatment of Kawasaki disease and for the prevention of coronaria injury and the drug has the more advantages for its low or no toxicity.

On the selectivity of superoxide dismutase mimetics and its importance in pharmacological studies

This review will discuss the advances made using various superoxide dismutase mimetics that led to the proposal that superoxide (and/or the product of its interaction with nitric oxide, peroxynitrite) is an important mediator of inflammation, and to the conclusion that super poisoning mimetics can be utilized as therapeutic agents in diseases of various etiologies.

NF-κB-dependent gene expression of proinflammatory cytokines in T24 cells: possible role in interstitial cystitis

The role of this nuclear factor on the induction of proinflammatory cytokine gene expression in human bladder carcinoma T24 cells is examined and their corresponding protein levels in the urine of interstitial cystitis patients are examined.
