Research so far has only shown that edible red macroalgae, Sarcodia ceylanica has the ability to eliminate free radicals and anti-diabetic, anti-bacterial properties. This study was conducted both in vitro and in vivo on the ethyl acetate extract (PD1) of farmed red macroalgae in order to explore its anti-inflammatory properties. In order to study the in vitro anti-inflammatory effects of PD1, we used lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to induce inflammatory responses in murine macrophages. For evaluating the potential in vivo anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive effects of PD1, we used carrageenan-induced rat paw edema to produce inflammatory pain...

Studies discussing inflammation and oxidative stress state that these conditions are known contributors in the pathogenesis of cholestatic diseases and ulcerative colitis, and studies examining patients with liver disease have found decreased antioxidant status and significant elevation of lipid peroxides as compared with healthy subjects. One hypothesis in liver disease is that deficient antioxidant defense mechanisms may lead to excess oxygen free radical formation, which promotes deleterious processes in the liver...

PURPOSE: To review the currently available literature reporting the patterns of recurrence and their predictive factors after open radical cystectomy (RC) for bladder cancer. METHODS: A review of the literature was performed using the MEDLINE, Scopus and Web of Sciences databases from January 1997 to May 2017. The PRISMA guidelines were followed for the conduct of the study. RESULTS: Local recurrence rate ranges between 30 and 54%. Distant recurrence is not often standardized and is reported in up to 50% of cases...

In this prospective study, we examined postoperative follow-up and preoperative IFN-γ T cell responses against 14 non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)-associated antigens in the blood of 51 patients with NSCLC, 7 patients with benign pulmonary tumors, and 10 tumor-free patients by enzyme-linked immunospot assay. The phenotype and function of T cells specific for tumor-associated antigens (TAAs) in the blood or tumor tissue of 9 NSCLC patients were characterized in detail using TNF-α, IL-2, and IFN-γ cytokine capture assays...

Immunotherapy for bladder cancer has given promising results. Here we aimed to evaluate the possible involvement and prognostic value of 33 genes involved in the immune response during bladder carcinogenesis. Expression levels were assessed by quantitative real-time RT-PCR in normal and tumor human bladder samples. Immunohistochemistry was performed to evaluate the protein expression of 2 genes and relation of the mRNA and protein levels was analyzed. Tumors were obtained from 154 patients (83 with muscle-invasive bladder cancer [MIBC] and 71 non-MIBC [NMIBC]) who underwent transurethral bladder resection or radical cystectomy between 2002 and 2006...

Xinjun Tang, Armido Studer
Transition metal-free radical α-perfluoroalkylation with concomitant β-alkynylation of unactivated alkenes is presented. These cascades proceed via electron-catalysis and comprise a radical 1,4- or 1,5-alkynyl migration from tertiary propargylic alcoholates to secondary or tertiary C-radicals as the key step. Alkynyl migration leads to a ketyl radical anion that sustains the chain as a single electron transfer reducing reagent.

Increasing evidence indicates that crude extracts derived from mulberry confer protection against oxidative stress. However, the antioxidant capacity of mulberry extract among different cultivars remains elusive. The main objective of the present study was therefore to investigate the effect of black mulberry extract (BMB) and white mulberry extract (WMB) on ethyl carbamate (EC)-induced cytotoxicity and oxidative stress. This study showed that the contents of total phenolics, total flavonoids, total procyanidins, cyanidin-3-O-glucoside, cyanidin-3-O-rutinoside and pelargonidin-3-O-glucoside of BMB were higher than that of WMB...

In order to investigate the effects of hydroxyl radicals on the myosin of pork, with focus on reducible and non-reducible oxidation of specific cysteine and methionine residues, extracted myofibrillar protein from longissimus dorsi of pork was incubated with H2O2 for 24, 48 and 72h, respectively. The thiol contents and crosslinking of myofibrillar protein were analyzed after oxidation of the protein. Moreover, cysteine (labeled with N-ethylmaleimide (NEM) and iodoacetamide (IAM) before and after reduction, respectively) and methionine oxidation were detected by LC/MS using label-free quantitation...

Cell autonomous circadian "clock" mechanisms are present in virtually every organ, and generate daily rhythms that are important for normal physiology. This is especially relevant to the cardiovascular system, for example the circadian mechanism orchestrates rhythms in heart rate, blood pressure, cardiac contractility, metabolism, gene and protein abundance over the 24-hour day and night cycles. Conversely, disturbing circadian rhythms (e.g. via shift work, sleep disorders) increases cardiovascular disease risk, and exacerbates cardiac remodelling and worsens outcome...

AIM: The present study was carried out to assess a new series of triazoloquinazolines 1-40 for their antioxidant activities using 1,1-diphenyl-2-picryl hydrazyl radical scavenging, ferric reduction antioxidant power and reducing power capability assays. RESULTS: All triazoloquinazolines 1-40 exhibited antioxidant activity ranged from weak to moderate and high. The obtained findings revealed that the triazoloquinazolines 30, 36 and 38-40 have superiority among all compounds, demonstrating the highest capacity to deplete 1,1-diphenyl-2-picryl hydrazyl and free radicals, in relation to butylated hydroxyl toluene, as a synthetic antioxidant agent...

Background & Aims: To improve prognosis in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the molecular mechanisms of tumor thrombus formation and metastasis must be clarified. The epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and cancer stem cells (CSCs) play crucial roles in tumor invasion and metastasis. This study aimed to reveal the clinical significance of the expression of the functional CSC marker, CD13, and investigate the correlation between CD13 expression and two EMT markers, E-cadherin and vimentin...

A large number of studies have proven the efficacy of ayurveda in the field of health and wellness. Panchakola, an ayurvedic formulation, is a general health tonic primarily used to cure fever, inflammation, pain, indigestion, and so on. We investigated effects of panchakola on oxidative stress in MCF-7 breast cancer and human embryonic kidney 293 (HEK293) cells. This work was performed to assess the antineoplastic and free radical-scavenging potential of aqueous extract of panchakola, a polyherbal formulation, in normal and breast cancer cell lines (i...

The origin of asymmetric induction in the additions of carbon- and nitrogen-centered radicals to octahedral centrochiral rhodium enolates has been investigated with Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations. Computed free energies of activation reproduce the preference for the experimentally observed major enantiomer. Good levels of enantioselectivity are maintained upon replacement of the bulky tert-butyl substituents on the ligands with methyl groups. Distortion-interaction analysis indicates that for both carbon-and nitrogen-centered radicals, which have relatively early and late transition states, respectively, the difference in the distortion energies controls the enantioselectivity...
