The blood pressure response after ethanol administration was studied in relation to blood acetaldehyde levels, aldehyde-dehydrogenase (ALDH)--and dopamine-beta-hydroxylase (DBH) activities in rats pretreated with the ethanol-sensitizing compounds disulfiram, cyanamide and coprine and the DBH-inhibitor FLA-57. Disulfiram, cyanamide and coprine, but not FLA-57, inhibited the low-Km ALDH in the liver and caused an increased acetaldehyde level in blood. Disulfiram and FLA-57, but not cyanamide and coprine, decreased the DBH-activity in the heart and the levels of norepinephrine in the heart and the brain. In disulfiram-treated rats with a low DBH-activity, a fall in blood pressure was observed at acetaldehyde levels being slightly higher than those found in control rats. In disulfiram-treated rats with a DBH-activity close to control activity and in rats pretreated with cyanamide or coprine, a fall in blood pressure were observed in rats pretreated with FLA-57. In rats pretreated with coprine + FLA-57, the fall in blood pressure was similar, or even lower, than in rats pretreated with coprine alone. The results suggest that acetaldehyde is the main determinant of the hypotension elicited by ethanol in rats pretreated with ALDH-inhibitors, and that the role of DBH in the disulfiram-ethanol reaction has been over-estimated in previous studies.

The aim of this in vitro study was to investigate possible involvement of cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes in modifying the toxic potential of 2-hydroxyethyl-methacrylate (HEMA). Primary cultures of CYP expressing rat alveolar type 2 cells were exposed to varying concentrations of HEMA. Nuclear translocation of aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) after HEMA exposure (100 μM) was demonstrated by immunocytochemical staining. Using reverse transcriptase PCR, increased mRNA level of AhR-regulated genes encoding enzymes associated with detoxification of xenobiotics were found. Exposure to 1 mM HEMA rapidly (6 h) resulted in cells with an apoptotic like morphology as suggested by marked nuclear condensation. Cotreatment of the HEMA exposed cells with a CYP inhibitor (disulfiram) or an antioxidant (vitamin C) effectively rescued the cells from this fate. Despite this effect of vitamin C, no increased level of reactive oxygen species was observed in the HEMA exposed cells. Our results suggest that HEMA activates AhR regulated gene transcription and that CYP is involved in the formation of a highly reactive HEMA metabolite.

Naltrexone, a broad opioid-receptor antagonist, was the first medication since disulfiram to be approved by the United States of America Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of alcohol dependence. In the initial clinical trials in the early 1990s, oral naltrexone, 50 mg, was shown to significantly reduce the risk of relapsing to heavy drinking compared to placebo. These early trials were followed by other trials throughout the world such that by 2010 about 4,000 individuals had been studied. Meta-analyses of these trials revealed that oral naltrexone is effective in reducing relapse to heavy drinking but less effective in enhancing abstinence. The effect size is modest, in the .15 to .2 range, which has impacted the adoption of naltrexone use by clinicians. Intramuscular versions of naltrexone active for one month have also shown efficacy. The tolerability of naltrexone is reasonable with the most common side-effect being nausea. Hepatotoxicity with naltrexone has not emerged as a clinical problem at the standard 50 mg dose though at higher doses hepatoxicity is of concern. The length of treatment with naltrexone has not been well studied though many clinicians recommend one year of treatment. Efforts are underway to identify predictors of naltrexone response but, to date, no predictor has achieved clinical utility. It is anticipated that the role of naltrexone and other opioid antagonists in the treatment of alcohol dependence will continue to be refined and that this class of medications will come to be seen as an important option in the clinical care of the patient with alcohol dependence.

Short exposure (1-2 h) of cultured cells, derived from a transplantable murine mammary carcinoma, to sodium arsenite, 2,4-dinitrophenol (DNP), carbonylcyanide-3-chlorophenylhydrazone (CCP) or disulfiram, induced resistance to a subsequent heat treatment, similar to heat-induced thermotolerance. Optimum resistance to a test heat treatment of 45 min at 45 degrees C after sodium arsenite exposure was obtained at a concentration of 300 microM, after DNP exposure at 3mM, after CCP at 300 microM and after disulfiram exposure in the range 1-30 microM. Exposure of cells to CCP, sodium arsenite or disulfiram led to enhanced synthesis of some proteins with the same molecular weight as 'heat shock' proteins. The pattern of enhanced synthesis of these proteins was agent specific. We could not detect significantly enhanced synthesis of the proteins after DNP using one-dimensional gel electrophoresis. These results suggest that enhanced stress protein synthesis is not a prerequisite for the development of thermal resistance.

Eye growth is visually regulated via messengers that are released from the retina. The retina involves a yet unknown algorithm to analyse the projected image so that the appropriate growth rates for the back of the eye are ensured. One biochemical candidate that could act as a growth controller, is retinoic acid (RA). Previous work (Seko, Shimokawa and Tokoro, 1996; Mertz et al., 1999) has shown that retinal and choroidal RA levels are indeed predictably changed by visual conditions that cause myopia or hyperopia, respectively. We have studied in which fundal tissues aldehyde dehydrogenase-2 (AHD2) and retinaldehyde dehydrogenase-2 (RALDH2), enzymes involved in RA synthesis, are expressed and at which levels the effects of vision on RA levels may be controlled. Using Northern blot analysis, we have found that the retinal mRNA level of the AHD2 is up-regulated after 3 days of treatment with negative lenses (negative lenses place the image behind the retina). The abundance of the retinal mRNA of a RA receptor, RAR-beta, was up-regulated already after 6 hr of treatment with positive lenses (positive lenses place the image in front of the retina). The up-regulation persisted for at least 1 week. Finally, we have studied the effects of an inhibitor of RA synthesis, disulfiram, on the visual control of eye growth. We found inhibition of myopia as induced by frosted goggles ('deprivation myopia') but no significant inhibitory effects on refractive errors induced by +7D or -7D lenses. Our results are in line with the hypothesis that RA may play a role in the visual control of eye growth. The RA system differs from a number of other candidates (dopamine, cholinergic agents, opiates) in that it distinguishes between positive and negative defocus, similar to the immediate early gene ZENK (Stell et al., 1999). The exact time kinetics of the changes have still to be worked out since it is possible that the changes in RA relate to already occurring changes in growth rather than to initial steps of the signaling cascade.

Five hundred and sixty-nine alcoholics were included in a double-blind placebo-controlled randomized multicenter study of the effects of Acamprosate (calcium acetylhomotaurinate (CA), 1.3 g/day) on indicators of alcoholic relapse after withdrawal. One hundred and eighty-one patients in the CA group versus 175 in the placebo group completed the three-month study. The major efficacy criterion was plasma gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT), as an indicator of recent alcohol ingestion. This analysis was completed by criteria concordance analysis on a number of indicators of alcohol intake. Patients in both groups were similar initially. After 3 months of treatment, the patients in the CA group had significantly lower GGT (1.4 +/- 1.56 versus 2.0 +/- 3.19 times normal, P = 0.016). All significant differences (P less than 0.05) or trends (0.10 greater than P greater than 0.05) were in favor of a superior effect of CA over placebo. The major side-effect of CA was diarrhea (present in 13% of CA patients versus 7% of placebo, P = 0.04). CA proved superior to placebo on the evolution of markers of alcohol ingestion at three months, in this large-scale multicenter study. It could be a new modality in the drug therapy of alcoholism, not involving an antabuse effect, an antidepressant action, or conditioning.

Previous metabolic studies in rats have suggested in vivo formation of the acrolein-glutathione (acrolein-GSH) adduct following administration of the highly reactive alpha, beta-unsaturated aldehyde acrolein. Early studies by several investigators demonstrated that similar compounds such as alpha, beta-unsaturated aldehyde-cysteine adducts have toxic (carcinostatic) activity against Ehrlich ascites tumor cells implanted in mice. The current studies investigated the in vivo toxicity associated with the acrolein-GSH adduct in the male Sprague-Dawley rat. The 1:1 acrolein-GSH adduct was synthesized and characterized by physical-chemical methods. Rats given the acrolein-GSH adduct intravenously at 0.5 or 1 mmol/kg developed nephrotoxicity characterized by glucosuria, proteinuria, elevation in serum urea nitrogen, and gross and histologic changes of the kidney. The toxicity was not affected by pretreatment of rats with pyrazole, an alcohol dehydrogenase inhibitor; disulfiram, an inhibitor of aldehyde dehydrogenases; or probenecid, a renal organic anion transport inhibitor. Administration of a similar but nonaldehydic glutathione conjugate, S-n-propylglutathione, did not result in nephrotoxicity in the rat. The nephrotoxicity induced by the acrolein-GSH adduct was inhibited by acivicin, a gamma-glutamyl-transpeptidase inhibitor. These results indicate that the acrolein-GSH adduct requires processing through the first step of the renal mercapturic acid synthesis pathway to be activated to a toxic species.

Much of alcohol's toxicity is due to its product, acetaldehyde. The role of acetaldehyde derived from endogenous sources was assessed in alcoholic patients administered disulfiram, an inhibitor of aldehyde dehydrogenase.

The rate limiting step in the alpha-amidation of bioactive peptides is catalyzed by peptidylglycine-alpha-hydroxylating mono-oxygenase (PHM; EC Sustained treatment with disulfiram (Antabuse), the disulfide dimer of diethyldithiocarbamate (DDC), inhibits PHM in vivo, causing tissue levels of alpha-amidated peptides to decrease. As a compensatory response, PHM protein is modified in such a way that its activity is increased when assayed under optimal conditions in a test tube. Because disulfiram is rapidly reduced to DDC in vivo, this investigation sought to determine if metabolic transformation plays a role in the effects of disulfiram treatment on alpha-amidation. While disulfiram treatment reduced concentrations of alpha-amidated peptides in the pituitary neurointermediate lobe and brain, DDC treatment did not, even at comparatively high doses. Both treatments increased the activity of PHM extracted from the neurointermediate pituitary and assayed under optimal copper conditions in vitro. Only disulfiram treatment elicited an increase in PHM activity extracted from cardiac atrium. It is concluded that the activity of PHM is regulated in a tissue specific fashion and that not all of the actions of disulfiram require its metabolism to DDC.

The purpose of this paper was to study the relationship between different neurotransmitter systems and seizure susceptibility in Mongolian gerbils with genetically determined epilepsy. In these animals, generalized tonic-clonic seizures were induced by stimulation with a blast of compressed air. A variety of drugs that specifically manipulate inhibitory or excitatory neurotransmitter systems proved capable of dose dependently blocking these seizures, i.e., the anticholinergic drug biperiden (ED50 12 mg/kg i.p.), the excitatory amino acid antagonist (+/-)-2-amino-7-phosphonoheptanoic acid (120 mg/kg), the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) agonists muscimol (0.66 mg/kg), 4,5,6,7-tetrahydroisoxazolo(5,4-c) pyridine-3-ol (1.3 mg/kg), progabide (50 mg/kg) and its acidic metabolite SL 75102 (45 mg/kg), the GABA aminotransferase inhibitors aminooxyacetic acid (0.9 mg/kg), gamma-acetylenic GABA (2.1 mg/kg) and ethanolamine-O-sulfate (1000 mg/kg), the GABA uptake inhibitor (-)-nipecotic acid ethyl ester (21 mg/kg), the dopamine agonist apomorphine (approximately 5 mg/kg), the dopamine precursor 3,4-dihydroxy-L-phenylalanine (34 mg/kg), and the alpha-adrenoceptor agonists clonidine (0.38 mg/kg) and xylazine (approximately 10 mg/kg). The anticonvulsant effect of 3,4-dihydroxyl-L-phenylalanine was not significantly affected by pretreatment with the dopamine-beta-hydroxylase inhibitors disulfiram and diethyldithiocarbamate, thus strongly indicating that 3,4-dihydroxyl-L-phenylalanine was acting through increase in dopamine rather than noradrenaline levels in the brain. The (+)-isomer of nipecotic acid ethyl ester, the glycineamide derivative milacemide, the indirect 5-hydroxytryptamine agonist fenfluramine and the 5-hydroxytryptamine antagonist ketanserin exerted no anticonvulsant action. The 5-hydroxytryptamine precursor L-5-hydroxytryptophan and the dopamine agonist lisuride were only weakly active but exerted pronounced side effects in the animals. Weak anticonvulsant effects were also determined for atropine, the noradrenaline precursor DL-threo-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine and the excitatory amino acid antagonist (+/-)-2-amino-5-phosphonopentanoic acid. Comparison of anticonvulsant potencies of the various drugs in gerbils with potencies reported in other genetic animal models of epilepsy, such as audiogenic seizure-susceptible mice, indicated that drugs that increase GABA and dopamine levels in the brain are strikingly more effective in gerbils than in other species in blocking generalized seizures.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 400 WORDS)

A 54-year-old woman with recurrent adenocarcinoma of the uterus was treated with new third-generation cephalosporin, cefmenoxime, for a urinary tract infection. She received an alcohol-containing tylenol elixir while receiving the drug on two occasions. A disulfiram-like reaction was noticed each time. Such reactions have been described in patients receiving certain drugs such as 5-nitroimidazoles, nitrofurans, sulfonylureas and certain newer cephalosporins with a methyltetrazolethiol side chain. This is the first report of a disulfiram-like reaction with cefmenoxime. The mechanism, causes, and significance of disulfiram-like reactions are discussed.

There was a tendency for lower serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase in the disulfiram and cimetidine groups compared with the R-(+)-pulegone group. The differences were significant for both the cimetidine and the combined disulfram and cimetidine groups compared with the R-(+)-pulegone group. Pretreatment with the combination of disulfiram and cimetidine most effectively mitigated R-(+)-pulegone-induced hepatotoxicity.

The mitochondrial isozyme of horse liver aldehyde dehydrogenase was labeled with brominated [5-(3-acetylpyridinio)pentyl]diphosphoadenosine. Specific labeling of a coenzyme binding region was proven by an enzymatic activity of the isozyme with the nonbrominated coenzyme derivative, optical properties of the complex, stoichiometry of incorporation, and protection against inactivation. A cysteine residue was selectively modified by the brominated coenzyme analogue and was identified in a 35-residue tryptic peptide. This cysteine residue corresponds to Cys-302 of the cytoplasmic isozyme and has earlier been implicated in disulfiram binding, confirming a position close to the active site. In contrast, the butyl homologue of the coenzyme analogue labels another residue of the mitochondrial isozyme. Thus, in the same isozyme, two residues are selectively reactive. They are concluded to be close together in the tertiary structure and to be close enough to the coenzyme binding site to be differentially labeled by coenzyme analogues differing only by a single methylene group.

Disulfiram was highly toxic to BC cell lines in vitro in a copper (Cu)-dependent manner. In Cu-containing medium (1 μM), the IC(50) concentrations of DS in BC cell lines were 200-500 nM. Disulfiram/copper significantly enhanced (3.7-15.5-fold) cytotoxicity of paclitaxel (PAC). Combination index isobologram analysis demonstrated a synergistic effect between DS/Cu and PAC. The increased Bax and Bcl2 protein expression ratio indicated that intrinsic apoptotic pathway may be involved in DS/Cu-induced apoptosis. Clonogenic assay showed DS/Cu-inhibited clonogenicity of BC cells. Mammosphere formation and the ALDH1(+VE) and CD24(Low)/CD44(High) CSCs population in mammospheres were significantly inhibited by exposure to DS/Cu for 24 h. Disulfiram/copper induced reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation and activated its downstream apoptosis-related cJun N-terminal kinase and p38 MAPK pathways. Meanwhile, the constitutive NFκB activity in BC cell lines was inhibited by DS/Cu.

Comorbity is very high in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) patients. PTSD is very often complicated with depressive disorder, substance abuse, other anxiety disorders, personality disorders, psychotic features, etc. There have been few pharmacotherapy studies in this complicated field. In the past few years the literature on pharmacotherapy treatment for PTSD and comorbidity has arisen. From empirical evidence (level A) exist three sertraline studies in PTSD comorbid with: 1) anxiety, 2) depression, and 3) anxiety and depression, and one risperidone study in PTSD comorbid with psychotic symptoms. From empirical evidence (level B) exist two disulfiram, naltrexone, and their combination studies in patients with PTSD comorbid with alcohol dependence and one paroxetine or bupropion versus cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) versus community mental health referral study in PTSD women outpatients with major depressive disorder. The results from our label trials in the Croatian war veterans with chronic PTSD comorbid with psychotic features treated with novel antipsychotics (olanzapine, risperidone, or quetiapine) are promising. In the future more rigorously designed, comparative studies are needed to determine the usefulness, efficacy, tolerability, and safety of particular psychopharmaceutical drugs in the treatment of this therapeutically and functionally challenging disorder, especially the trials from level A.

Disulfiram is frequently used in the treatment of alcoholism. In this study, we found that CuCl(2) (1-10 microM), but not other metal ions (Fe(2+), Zn(2+), Pb(2+)), markedly potentiated disulfiram-induced cytotoxicity by 440-fold in primary astrocytes. Thus, the molecular mechanisms of the cytotoxic effects induced by the disulfiram-Cu(2+) complex were explored. The changes in morphology (nuclear condensation and apoptotic body formation) and hypodiploidy of DNA suggested that the disulfiram-Cu(2+) complex induced an apoptotic process. Our studies of the death-signaling pathway reveal that decreased mitochondrial membrane potential, increased free radical production, and depletion of non-protein-thiols (glutathione) were involved. The disulfiram-Cu(2+) complex activated c-Jun-amino-terminal kinase (JNK) and caspase-3 followed by poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase degradation in a time-dependent manner. Moreover, the cellular Cu content was markedly increased and the copper chelator bathocuproine disulfonate abolished all of these cellular events, suggesting that Cu(2+) is essential for death signaling. The antioxidants N-acetylcysteine and vitamin C also inhibited the cytotoxic effect. Thus, we conclude that the disulfiram-Cu(2+) complex induces apoptosis and perhaps necrosis at a late stage mediated by oxidative stress followed by sequential activation of JNK, caspase-3 and poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase degradation. These findings imply that the axonal degeneration and neurotoxicity observed after the chronic administration of disulfiram are perhaps, at least in part, due to the cytotoxic effect of the disulfiram-Cu(2+) complex formed endogenously.

We studied the effect of prior narcotic addiction on response to treatment of alcoholism. Patients in the Elmhurst Alcoholism Treatment Program are offered medical care, counseling, disulfiram, and close affiliation with Alcoholics Anonymous. We compared 85 alcoholics who had a history of narcotic use with a control group of 85 alcoholics matched for age, sex, and race who had never used narcotics. Among controls, 30 (35%) became abstinent from alcohol for at least half the time that they were known to us. Of the former narcotic users, only 8 (9%) became abstinent for at least half the time they were known to us. Former narcotic users did poorly in alcoholism treatment, whether or not they had ever been treated with methadone maintenance. Alcohol use, often heavy, began before heroin use in at least half the narcotic group. We conclude that a history of narcotic use reduces markedly the chance of success in conventional alcoholism treatment, and that alcoholism and narcotic addiction develop independently.

Oxidants targeted toward inactivation of the nucleocapsid zinc finger protein are under development as antiviral agents, especially for use against human immunodeficiency virus. In the present study, electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry is used to follow in situ the progress of the reactions of 2,2'-dithiodipyridine and disulfiram with recombinant nucleocapsid protein p7 (Ncp7) from human immunodeficiency virus-1 at pH 7.4. Both reagents react with the two zinc fingers in the protein, resulting in the ejection of two zinc ions and the formation of oxidized apo-Ncp7 with three intramolecular disulfide bonds. The ejection of zinc by 2,2'-dithiodipyridine occurs in two steps. Alkylation of unreacted cysteine residues with N-ethylmaleimide after a 2-min reaction with 2,2'-dithiodipyridine reveals that the carboxyl-terminal zinc finger is disrupted first. Cys-49, Cys-36, and, to a lesser extent, Cys-39 are all shown to be target residues for initial electrophilic attack. In the reaction of disulfiram with Ncp7, ejection of the two zinc ions also occurs in two steps; however, the fully oxidized apo-Ncp7 is formed more rapidly. Thus, after a 40-min reaction, 45% of native Ncp7 is oxidized by 2,2'-dithiodipyridine, whereas 75% is oxidized by disulfiram.

Apoptosis has a central role in the pathogenesis of many human diseases, one of which is cancer. One of the most important strategies to regulate apoptosis is via the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway. It has been shown that inhibition of proteasomal chymotrypsin-like activity is a strong apoptosis-inducing stimulus and that actively proliferating cancer cells are more sensitive to proteasome inhibitors than normal or untransformed cells. Dithioscarbamates are a class of metal-chelating compounds with various applications in medicine. We reported previously that certain members of dithiocarbamates, such as pyrrolidine dithiocarbamate (PDTC), diethyldithiocarbamate and disulfiram, are able to bind with tumor cellular copper, forming an active complex with proteasome-inhibitory, apoptosis-inducing and anti-cancer activities. In the current study, we synthesized eight PDTC analogues with substitutions made to the pyrrolidine ring and studied their structure-activity relationships. We found that substitution of the pyrrolidine ring with piperidine had almost no effect on their proteasome-inhibitory and anti-proliferative potencies in human breast cancer cells. However, after the pyrrolidine ring was substituted with morpholine, the activity of the mixtures slightly decreased but was completely lost when piperazine with the attached ethyl group was used for the substitution. This structure-activity relationship was confirmed by the results generated with the corresponding copper complexes. Our data further support the novel concept of using accumulated copper in human cancer cells as a selective approach for chemotherapy.

Animal studies demonstrate that diethyldithiocarbamate is an effective antidote in acute nickel carbonyl poisoning when it is administered parenterally soon after exposure. However, as no adequately controlled clinical studies have been performed, further clinical data are required before diethyldithiocarbamate can be recommended routinely in acute nickel carbonyl poisoning. If diethyldithiocarbamate is to be employed, it should be administered parenterally soon after exposure as delay in administration may increase nickel carbonyl toxicity. There are currently insufficient data to recommend disulfiram as an alternative to diethyldithiocarbamate even when diethyldithiocarbamate is not available.

In viral proteins, labile Zn-sites, where Zn(2+) is crucial for maintaining the native protein structure but the Zn-bound cysteines are reactive, are promising drug targets. Here, we aim to (i) identify labile Zn-sites in viral proteins using guidelines established from our previous work and (ii) assess if clinically safe Zn-ejecting agents could eject Zn(2+) from the predicted target site and thus inhibit viral replication. As proof-of-concept, we identified a labile Zn-site in the hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS5A protein and showed that the antialcoholism drug, disulfiram, could inhibit HCV replication to a similar extent as the clinically used antiviral agent, ribavirin. The discovery of a novel viral target and a new role for disulfiram in inhibiting HCV replication will enhance the therapeutic armamentarium against HCV. The strategy presented can also be applied to identify labile sites in other bacterial or viral proteins that can be targeted by disulfiram or other clinically safe Zn-ejectors.

Pathological gambling and comorbid alcohol dependence often occur in combination. Disulfiram is one of the proven drugs for alcohol dependence. In addition to its inhibiting acetaldehyde dehydrogenase, disulfiram inhibits dopamine beta-hydroxylase and may thereby increase dopamine and decrease norepinephrine cerebral concentrations. Because there may be common neurochemical substrates and neuronal circuits for pathological gambling and addiction, we wished to explore the effect of disulfiram in gambling.

Tyrosine hydroxylase and dopamine-(DA)-beta-hydroxylase acitvities in guinea pig brain and heart were determined at various time after disulfiram (DS) and sodium diethyldithiocarbamate (DDC) injections. In the same tissues DS and DDC levels were measured. The linear relationship between the above enzymes activities and the levels of DDC in brain and heart has been found. The inactivation of the both enzymes is dependent on DDC content in tissues.

Twenty-one patients within 30% of ideal body weight, who provided institutional review board-approved informed consent and were randomized to receive disulfiram (500 mg oral, n = 11) or nothing (control, n = 10) the night before surgery, were evaluated. All patients received sevoflurane (2.7% end-tidal, 1.3 MAC) in oxygen for 3 h after propofol induction. Thereafter, sevoflurane was discontinued, and anesthesia was maintained with propofol, fentanyl, and nitrous oxide. Blood sevoflurane concentrations during anesthesia and for 8 h thereafter were measured by gas chromatography. Plasma and urine fluoride and total (unconjugated plus glucuronidated) HFIP concentrations were measured by an ion-selective electrode and by gas chromatography, respectively, during anesthesia and for 96 h postoperatively.

The locus coeruleus was ablated in rats or a 100 mg/kg dose of disulfiram and a 0.5 mg/kg dose of scopolamine were administered buy antabuse to them. Then a conditioned two-side avoidance reflex was elaborated. The locus coeruleus ablation and administration of disulfiram brought about a nearly equal reduction of noradrenaline (NA) content in the brain. Scopolamine against the background of a low NA level did not change its content. Ablation of locus coeruleus, administration of disulfiram and scopolamine did not prevent the elaboration, fixation and retention of the conditioned defensive reflex. Scopolamine introduced to animal with ablated locus coeruleus while not affecting the elaboration of defensive conditioned two-side avoidance reflex, completely prevented its retention. Administration of scopolamine to animals with a depressed NA synthesis produced a less profound amnesia.

The acute toxicity of cyclophosphamide (CP) was investigated following the pretreatment with seven sulfur-containing compounds (SCC): disulfiram (DSF), diethyldithiocarbamate (DDTC), L-cysteine (Cys), N-acetyl-L-cysteine (Ac-Cys), S-carboxymethyl-L-cysteine (Carb-Cys), D-penicillamine (Pen), and cysteamine hydrochloride (1-amino-3-mercaptoethane X HCl, C-NH). The following LD50 values were recorded: CP alone 254, CP + DSF 77, CP + DDTC 260, CP + Cys 345, CP + Ac-Cys 319, CP + Carb-Cys 271, CP + Pen buy antabuse 392, CP + C-NH 299 mg/kg b.wt. Only DSF significantly increased the toxicity of cyclophosphamide. None of the SCC tested seems to be superior to mesna (sodium 2-mercaptoethane sulfonate), a selective protector against cyclophosphamide-induced bladder and kidney toxicity.

The influence of acute ethanol administration on the oxidative stress status of rat brain and liver was assessed by in situ spontaneous organ chemiluminescence (CL). Brain and liver CL was significantly increased after acute ethanol administration to fed rats, a response that is time-dependent and evidenced at doses higher than 1 g/kg. Ethanol-induced CL development is faster in liver compared with brain probably due to buy antabuse the greater ethanol metabolic capacity of the liver, whereas the net enhancement in brain light emission at 3 h after ethanol treatment is higher than that of the liver, which could reflect the greater susceptibility of brain to oxidative stress. The effect of ethanol on brain and liver CL seems to be mediated by acetaldehyde, due to its abolishment by the alcohol dehydrogenase inhibitor 4-methylpyrazole and exacerbation by the aldehyde dehydrogenase inhibitor disulfiram. In brain, these findings were observed in the absence of changes in the activity of superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase, glutathione reductase, and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase. However, the content of brain glutathione was significantly decreased by 31%, by ethanol, thus establishing an enhanced oxidative stress in this tissue.

Elevated levels of the tumor marker S100B are observed in malignant melanoma, and this EF-hand-containing protein was shown to directly bind wild-type (wt) p53 in a Ca(2+)-dependent manner, dissociate the p53 tetramer, and inhibit its tumor suppression functions. Likewise, inhibiting S100B with small interfering RNA (siRNA(S100B)) is sufficient to restore wild-type p53 levels and its downstream gene products and induce the arrest of cell growth and UV-dependent apoptosis in malignant melanoma. Therefore, it is a goal to develop S100B inhibitors (SBiXs) that inhibit the S100B-p53 complex and buy antabuse restore active p53 in this deadly cancer. Using a structure-activity relationship by nuclear magnetic resonance approach (SAR by NMR), three persistent binding pockets are found on S100B, termed sites 1-3. While inhibitors that simultaneously bind sites 2 and 3 are in place, no molecules that simultaneously bind all three persistent sites are available. For this purpose, Cys84 was used in this study as a potential means to bridge sites 1 and 2 because it is located in a small crevice between these two deeper pockets on the protein. Using a fluorescence polarization competition assay, several Cys84-modified S100B complexes were identified and examined further. For five such SBiX-S100B complexes, crystallographic structures confirmed their covalent binding to Cys84 near site 2 and thus present straightforward chemical biology strategies for bridging sites 1 and 3. Importantly, one such compound, SC1982, showed an S100B-dependent death response in assays with WM115 malignant melanoma cells, so it will be particularly useful for the design of SBiX molecules with improved affinity and specificity.

S-(N,N-Diethyldithiocarbamoyl)-N-acetyl-L-cysteine (AC-DDTC) is a mixed disulfide from disulfiram and N-acetyl-L-cysteine, which possesses putative anticarcinogenic and antimutagenic properties. The present study describes the absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of 14C-labeled AC-DDTC in rats. AC-DDTC was well absorbed after oral administration. Based on the excretion of radioactivity in urine, the minimum absorption was about 73%. The rate of absorption was very rapid, with the peak level of radioactivity in plasma after 15 min of administration. buy antabuse Mean Cmax value for N,N-diethyldithiocarbamate (DDTC) after oral dose of AC-DDTC (20 mg/kg) was 3.8 +/- 0.2 nmol/ml at 15 min and the mean residence time was 47.1 +/- 2.8 min. After oral administration of [14C]AC-DDTC, radioactivity was distributed relatively rapidly. Maximum concentrations were observed in the liver (0.443% dose/g), kidneys (0.496% dose/g), oesophagus (0.313% dose/g) and in the adrenals (0.364% dose/g) at 30 min to 1 h after dosing. Liver was the only organ which contains a considerable amount of radioactivity (0.091% dose/g) 24 h after dosing. Two metabolites of AC-DDTC following oral administration were identified in the plasma and liver by GC and HPLC using extractive alkylation technique, namely DDTC and its methyl ester. Urinary excretion was a major route of elimination of radioactivity derived from [14C]AC-DDTC, in that about 73% of the dose was recovered in urine whereas only 14% was found in feces over 7 days.

Intraocular treatment with DSF-liposomes prevented the onset of cataract development in rat pups injected with sodium selenite. Treatment with DSF also significantly reduced the selenium contents in plasma at 1 h post-treatment and in the eye at 96 h post-treatment. No significant differences of selenium content in liver and kidney were observed in 13-day old rats instilled with DSF-liposomes or DSF free liposomes. Cataract could not be induced in the 30-days-old buy antabuse rats with the same dose of selenite (19 micromol/kg) and the liver, kidney, and especially eye of the older rats had lower levels of selenium than 13-day old rats. Diethyldithiocarbamate (DDC), an active metabolite of DSF, was decreased in the plasma following a subcutaneous injection of sodium selenite. The selenium concentration in the plasma was decreased by the intranasal administration of DSF suspensions.

1. An 'open access' generic high-performance liquid chromatography method was developed for different combination sets each containing specific cytochrome P450 probe substrate and the corresponding metabolite. Method development, optimization and validation were carried out with the following combinations: phenacetin + paracetamol + internal standard (IS, celecoxib), bufuralol + hydroxybufuralol + IS, testosterone + 6beta-hydroxytestosterone + IS, chlorzoxazone + 6-hydroxychlorzoxazone + IS, coumarin + 7-hydroxycoumarin + IS, tolbutamide + hydroxytolbutamide + IS, and diazepam + desmethyldiazepam + IS. 2. The assay procedure involved a simple one-step liquid/liquid extraction followed by reverse phase chromatography (Inertsil ODS 3V column) employing a ternary gradient system and the eluate was monitored by a photodiode array/fluorescence detector. The standard curve for each compound, in the concentration range 0.1-10 microg ml(-1), in various sets was linear (r(2)>0.99) and absolute recoveries of all analytes were >90%. The lower limit of quantification was 0.1 microg ml(-1). The intraday precision and accuracy in the measurements of quality control were <15% relative standard deviation and <15% deviation from nominal values, respectively. 3. Each combination set was tested with individual chemical inhibitors (furafylline, quinidine buy antabuse , ketoconazole, disulfiram, diethyldithiocarbamate, sulphaphenazole and tranylcypromine) and all analytes were well resolved. Overall, the assay is simple, uses conventional instrumentation and provides a scope to analyse all cytochrome P450 combination sets continuously. The application of the method in the cytochrome P450 liability screen of novel compounds is also presented.

Pharmacotherapy, in conjunction with psychosocial interventions, is emerging as a valuable tool for alcohol dependence treatment. Currently, four agents are approved by the Food and Drug Administration for this purpose: disulfiram, acamprosate, oral naltrexone, and the once-monthly injectable, extended-release naltrexone. All four agents have demonstrated some ability to reduce drinking and/or increase time spent abstinent, but results have not always been consistent. Except disulfiram, which has an aversive mechanism of action, effective pharmacotherapies for alcohol dependence are thought to work by blocking the rewards of alcohol or stabilizing systems dysregulated by chronic buy antabuse alcohol intake. Topiramate and baclofen have also demonstrated some efficacy in treating alcohol dependence. The efficacies of many of these regimens are modest and are limited by patient nonadherence to treatment and disease heterogeneity. Pharmacotherapeutic effectiveness could be enhanced through increased knowledge of the pathophysiology of alcohol dependence, through the identification of predictors of response to specific medications, and by modalities that improve medication adherence.

Despite the success of combination antiretroviral therapy (cART), HIV persists in long lived latently infected cells in the blood and tissue, and treatment is required lifelong. Recent clinical studies have trialed latency-reversing agents (LRA) as a method to eliminate latently infected cells; however, the effects of LRA on the central nervous system (CNS), a well-known site of virus persistence on cART, are unknown. In this study, we evaluated the toxicity and potency of a panel of commonly used and well-known LRA (panobinostat, romidepsin, vorinostat, chaetocin, disulfiram, hexamethylene bisacetamide [HMBA], and JQ-1) in primary fetal astrocytes (PFA) as well as monocyte-derived macrophages as a cellular buy antabuse model for brain perivascular macrophages. We show that most LRA are non-toxic in these cells at therapeutic concentrations. Additionally, romidepsin, JQ-1, and panobinostat were the most potent at inducing viral transcription, with greater magnitude observed in PFA. In contrast, vorinostat, chaetocin, disulfiram, and HMBA all demonstrated little or no induction of viral transcription. Together, these data suggest that some LRA could potentially activate transcription in latently infected cells in the CNS. We recommend that future trials of LRA also examine the effects of these agents on the CNS via examination of cerebrospinal fluid.

Previous studies have demonstrated the ability of the dithiocarbamate, disulfiram, to produce a peripheral neuropathy in humans and experimental animals and have also provided evidence that N,N-diethyldithiocarbamate (DEDC) is a proximate toxic species of disulfiram. The ability of DEDC to elevate copper levels in the brain suggests that it may also elevate levels of copper in peripheral nerve, possibly leading to oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation from redox cycling of copper. The study presented here investigates the potential of DEDC to promote copper accumulation and lipid peroxidation in peripheral nerve. Rats were administered either DEDC or deionized water by ip osmotic pumps and fed a normal diet or diet containing elevated copper, and the levels of metals, isoprostanes, and the severity of lesions in peripheral nerve and brain were assessed by ICP-AES/AAS, GC/MS, and light microscopy, respectively. Copper was the only metal that demonstrated any significant compound-related elevations relative to controls, and total copper was increased in both brain and peripheral nerve in animals administered DEDC on both diets. In contrast, lesions and elevated F2-isoprostanes were significantly increased only in peripheral nerve for the rats administered DEDC on both diets. Autometallography staining Diflucan 1 Pill of peripheral nerve was consistent with increased metal content along the myelin sheath, but in brain, focal densities were observed, and a periportal distribution occurred in liver. These data are consistent with the peripheral nervous system being more sensitive to DEDC-mediated demyelination and demonstrate the ability of DEDC to elevate copper levels in peripheral nerve. Additionally lipid peroxidation appears to either be a contributing event in the development of demyelination, possibly through an increase of redox active copper, or a consequence of the myelin injury.

Subsequent to modification of N-nitrosamine metabolism by disulfiram, mucus-producing cells and Clara cells in the respiratory tract are involved increasingly in detoxification as well as in bioactivation of N-nitroso-N-methylbenzylamine and N-nitrosodibutylamine. Overtaxing of these cells or local concentration of antigenic metabolites leads to cytolytic defects in tracheal, bronchial and bronchiolar epithelium, in addition to toxic degenerative lesions. The Paracetamol And Alcohol resulting continuous stimulation of proliferation leads to basal-cell hyperplasia, squamous-cell metaplasia and squamous papillomas. In areas with insufficient differentiation, due to cell proliferation, there is an increased probability that focal mutation, subsequent to alkylation of purine bases, will be passed from one cell generation to the next, with subsequent formation of tumours in the bronchiolo-alveolar region.

Mouse hepatic microsomal enzymes catalyzed the oxidation of o-, m-, and p-tolualdehydes, intermediate metabolites of xylene, to the corresponding toluic acids. Cofactor requirement for the catalytic activity indicates that the microsomes contain NAD- and NADPH-dependent enzymes for this reaction. GC/MS analyses of the carboxylic acids formed by incubation under oxygen-18 gas indicate that the mechanism for this oxidation is an oxygenation and a dehydrogenation for the NADPH- and NAD-dependent reaction. Vmax/Km (nmol/min/mg protein) ratios indicate that the NADPH-dependent activity is more pronounced than the NAD-dependent activity. These results suggest that the NADPH-dependent reaction is mainly responsible for the microsomal oxidation of tolualdehydes. The NADPH-dependent activity was significantly inhibited by SKF 525-A, disulfiram and menadione, inhibitors of cytochrome P450 (P450), suggesting the involvement Omnicef Dosage Calculator of P450 in the reaction. In a reconstituted system, P450 MUT-2 (CYP2C29) purified from mouse hepatic microsomes catalyzed the oxidation of o-, m-, and p-tolualdehydes to the carboxylic acids, and the specific activities (nmol/min/nmol P450) were 1.44, 2.81, and 2.32, respectively. Rabbit antibody raised against P450 MUT-2 significantly inhibited the NADPH-dependent oxidation of tolualdehydes to toluic acids by 88% (o-), 63% (m-), and 62% (p-) using mouse hepatic microsomes. The present study demonstrated that a mouse hepatic microsomal aldehyde oxygenase, P450 MUT-2, catalyzed the most of oxidative activity of tolualdehydes to toluic acids in the microsomes.

Antabuse treatment has mostly been applied to alcohol dependent patients although the heavy users of alcohol Risperdal Consta Dosage are responsible for the major parts of alcohol related problems in our societies. The heavy users of alcohol should be identified both by the general practitioners and the hospital doctors in any field and the first intervention should be a health interview connected with a biological monitoring of alcohol damages and thereby many patients would be motivated for moderate drinking. If this is not the case, heavy users should be encouraged to a 6 or better a 12 months supervised treatment with Antabuse. This treatment has especially been effective in employees with work-related alcohol problems.
