Leflunomide (LEF) is a synthetic isoxazole derivative with anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties, which has been reported to prevent acute rejection and delay progression of chronic allograft nephropathy (CAN) in animal models. We performed a pilot, crossover trial in 22 renal transplant recipients who were converted from azathioprine (AZA) or mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) to LEF in an effort to slow progression of renal dysfunction [deteriorating renal function (n = 5), cyclosporine (CyA) nephrotoxicity (n = 4) or biopsy-proven CAN (n = 13)]. Baseline maintenance immunosuppression consisted of CyA, AZA or MMF and prednisone. Six-month postconversion patient and graft survival was 100% and 91%, respectively. Mean serum creatinine 6months preconversion was 2.2 +/- 0.6mg/dL, at initiation was 3.0 +/- 1.1 mg/dL, and 6 months postconversion was 2.8 +/- 1.3 mg/dL. The rate of change in serum creatinine was 35 +/- 39%/6 months preconversion and -5 +/- 21%/6 months postconversion to LEF (p = 0.003). Two patients discontinued LEF for diarrhea and myalgia. No readmissions, increase in liver function tests, infections or acute rejection episodes occurred. Mean CyA levels did not change, 146 +/- 72 ng/ mL pre-LEF vs. 132 +/- 51 ng/mL post-LEF, p = NS. Conversion to LEF reversed progression of chronic renal allograft dysfunction with minimal toxicity.

Recent research has shown that in the processes of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), interleukin-1 (IL-1) is one of the pivotal cytokines in initiating and driving the disease, and the body's natural response, IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra), has been shown conclusively to block its effects. Several agents used to treat RA such as disease modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs), as well as glucocorticoids (GC), affect the transcription, synthesis, release, and/or activity of cytokines, including the IL-1Ra. A higher ratio of IL-1Ra:IL-1 production by the peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) of RA patients successfully treated with methotrexate (MTX) is observed when compared with the PBMC of untreated patients or healthy controls. Recent studies have also shown a significant increase in IL-1Ra with low-dose MTX treatment of cultured monocytic cells. Antimalarials (hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine) have been found to increase the monocyte production of IL-1Ra and these changes might explain at least some of their mechanisms of action. Various studies have shown that leflunomide (LF) tends to favor the inhibition of pro-inflammatory and matrix-destructive factors over that of anti-inflammatory factors (i.e. IL-1Ra) and metalloproteinase inhibitors, thus interfering with both inflammation and tissue destruction. Further studies should investigate the effects of LF on synovial tissue/fluid expression of the IL-1Ra in treated RA patients. Regarding cyclosporin A (CyA), considerable evidence shows that the treatment of RA patients induces a decrease in IL-1Ra levels. Similar results with the inhibition of IL-1Ra mRNA and protein have been observed following RA treatment with glucocorticoids. In addition, the oral administration of cortisol to normal subjects also decreased LPS-induced IL-1Ra synthesis in cultured monocytes. The effects of different DMARDs and GC on IL-1Ra levels in RA patients, as reviewed in this paper, support the important role that selected anticytokine treatments might exert in the pathophysiology of the disease.

Sixty-five patients completed 20 weeks of treatment, and 71.6% were responders based on the ACR20 criteria. After 20 weeks, the mean changes were -16.3 for tender joint count, -12.0 for swollen joint count, -44.0 for physician global assessment, -34.3 for patient global assessment, -22.7 for erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and -0.65 for the Health Assessment Questionnaire score. Adverse events occurred in 40.5% of the patients, and were considered serious in four patients who discontinued therapy. Abnormal liver function was noted for 16 patients (21.6%). Two of these patients were withdrawn from the study; after discontinuing the medication, their liver function recovered fully.

The cost effectiveness of treatments that have changed the "natural history" of a chronic progressive disease needs to be evaluated over the long term. Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) are the standard treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and should be started as early as possible. A number of studies have shown that they are effective in improving disease activity and function, and in joint damage. Our review was focused on revision and critical evaluation of the studies including the literature on cost effectiveness of DMARDs (cyclosporine A, sulphasalazine, leflunomide, and methotrexate). The European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) recommendations showed that traditional DMARDs are cost effective at the time of disease onset. They are less expensive than biological DMARDs and can be useful in controlling disease activity in early RA.

The contribution of humoral immune response in allograft and xenograft rejection has been clearly demonstrated in recent years. For this reason, inhibition of alloantibody production has become essential in managing transplanted patients. Here, we assessed the effects of the leflunomide derivative FK778 (FK778) in the control of antibody production resulting from semiallogeneic cognate T-B-cell interactions.

Heart transplants were performed in rats (Brown Norway [BN] to Lewis) and treated with varying doses of FK778 or leflunomide for 28 days. At 28 days, at the time of rejection or at the death of the animal, the allograft and other vital organs were obtained for study by light microscopy and immunohistochemistry. In separate experiments, Lewis rats were given sublethal irradiation, inoculated with rat CMV (Maastricht strain), and treated with varying doses of FK778 and leflunomide. In both the transplant and CMV studies, IP uridine was given at 250 mg/kg to cohorts or animals receiving FK778 and leflunomide.

New developments in the treatment of lupus have been lacking until recently. It is hoped that new immunomodulating therapies, including a synthetic form of dehydroepiandrosterone (prasterone), will help reduce the need for steroid treatment among patients with mild-to-moderate disease, thereby reducing the morbidity and cost associated with steroid-related side effects. In addition, newer treatments for more severe systemic lupus erythematosus appear to be on the horizon, the most promising of which include biologic agents. Meanwhile, several improvements have been made to traditional therapies that may also benefit patients.

Plants have been used for medical purposes since the beginning of human history and are the basis of modern medicine. Most chemotherapeutic drugs for cancer treatment are molecules identified and isolated from plants or their synthetic derivatives. Our hypothesis was that whole plant extracts selected according to ethnobotanical sources of historical use might contain multiple molecules with antitumor activities that could be very effective in killing human cancer cells. This study examined the effects of three whole plant extracts (ethanol extraction) on human tumor cells. The extracts were from Urtica membranacea (Urticaceae), Artemesia monosperma (Asteraceae), and Origanum dayi post (Labiatae). All three plant extracts exhibited dose- and time-dependent killing capabilities in various human derived tumor cell lines and primary cultures established from patients' biopsies. The killing activity was specific toward tumor cells, as the plant extracts had no effect on primary cultures of healthy human cells. Cell death caused by the whole plant extracts is via apoptosis. Plant extract 5 (Urtica membranacea) showed particularly strong anticancer capabilities since it inhibited actual tumor progression in a breast adenocarcinoma mouse model. Our results suggest that whole plant extracts are promising anticancer reagents.

The method was shown to be reliable, with good accuracy and precision statistics, and acceptable quantitation using 4 different collection tube types. Mean accuracy over 6 control concentrations was within 5.4%, over 5 validation runs, whereas %coefficient of variation (CV) was within 8.15%. Evaluation of sodium heparin, KEDTA, NaF/K oxalate, and plain serum tubes from 6 separate individuals at the lower limit of quantification (LLOQ) showed no influence on the ability to quantify teriflunomide accurately. Regression equations for a curve range of 0.005-1 mcg/mL gave R values of 0.998 or better, whereas the range 0.8-200 mcg/mL had R values of 0.997 or better.

The clinical activity of leflunomide, a drug used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, is due to its active metabolite, teriflunomide. In vitro studies indicate that at least 99% of teriflunomide is expected to be protein bound in human plasma in vivo, leaving<1% in the unbound or 'free' state for clinical activity. To examine details of the relationships between leflunomide dosing and patient response, it is necessary to have an assay that is sufficiently sensitive to measure the minor fraction of free teriflunomide in patient samples. Therefore, we aimed to develop and validate an LC-MS/MS method for the measurement of teriflunomide, and use it to determine the total and free teriflunomide concentration in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Teriflunomide and its deuterated internal standard were extracted from human plasma and separated using a reversed phase method with a C18 column. Detection was conducted with an API 3000 LC-MS/MS System by monitoring selected ions in negative ion MRM. Optimal detection occurred at m/z 269.1/160.0 (teriflunomide) and m/z 273.1/164.0 (teriflunomide-D4). Over a linear range of 5-500 μg/L, the inter-batch precision ranged from 1.9 to 8.8% and accuracy from -8.4 to 8.0%. The intra- and inter-batch assay precision for quality control samples ranged from 2.1-5.4% and 5.7-7.1% respectively. The procedure was applied to assess total and free plasma concentrations of teriflunomide in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Free teriflunomide was approximately 0.11% of total teriflunomide, and there was a significant correlation (r2=0.724) between free and total teriflunomide concentrations. A validated, accurate and sensitive method was developed and successfully applied for the measurement of total and free teriflunomide concentration in human plasma samples. This method has been shown to be reproducible and sensitive and can be applied to clinical samples.

Isoxazoles are an important class of compounds of potential therapeutic value. The aim of this study was to determine immunotropic effects of 5-amino-3-methyl-4-isoxazolecarboxylic acid hydrazide derivatives on spontaneous and mitogen-induced lymphocyte proliferation in young and old mice, cytokine production by peritoneal cells as well as possible mechanism of action in a model of Jurkat cells. Three-month-old and 13-month-old BALB/c mice were used as donors of the cells from a thymus, a spleen, mesenteric lymph nodes, and a peritoneal cavity. Spontaneous and concanavalin A or lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced cell proliferation was measured by 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide colorimetric method. IL-1β and TNF-α production induced by LPS in macrophage-enriched peritoneal cell cultures was measured by enzyme-linked immunoassay. 5-amino-3-methyl-4-isoxazolecarboxylic acid hydrazide, 01K (4-phenyl-1-(5-amino-3-methylisoxazole-4-carbonyl)-thiosemicarbazide), and 06K (4-(4-chlorophenyl)-1-(5-amino-3-methylisoxazole-4-carbonyl)-thiosemicarbazide) exhibited regulatory activity in the proliferation tests. Prevailing stimulatory activity of the hydrazide and inhibitory activity of 01K and 06K was observed. Those effects were connected with different influence of the compounds on signaling proteins expression in Jurkat cells. The regulatory effects of the compounds on IL-1β production were more profound than those on TNF-α. Differences in the compound activity in young versus old mice were mainly restricted to 01K. Immunosuppressive isoxazole leflunomide and a stimulatory RM-11 (1,7-dimethyl-8-oxo-1,2H-isoxazole [5,4-e]triazepine) were applied as reference drugs.

A total of 48 patients underwent semi-rigid thoracoscopy between August 2012 and December 2013 for undiagnosed pleural effusion. Mean age was 50.9 ± 14.1 years (range: 17-78 years). Pre-procedure clinico-radiological diagnoses were malignant pleural effusion [36 patients (75%)], tuberculosis (TB) [10 (20.83%) patients], and empyema [2 patients (4.17%)]. Patients with empyema underwent the procedure for pleural biopsy, optimal placement of intercostal tube and adhesiolysis. Thoracoscopic pleural biopsy diagnosed pleural malignancy in 30 (62.5%) patients and TB in 2 (4.17%) patients. Fourteen (29.17%) patients were diagnosed with non-specific pleuritis and normal pleura was diagnosed on a pleural biopsy in 2 (4.17%) patients. Overall, a definitive diagnosis of either pleural malignancy or TB was obtained in 32 (66.7%) patients. Combined overall sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value and negative predictive value of thoracoscopic pleural biopsy for malignant pleural effusion were 96.77%, 100%, 100% and 66.67%, respectively. There was no procedure-related mortality. On performing a systematic review of literature, four studies on semi-rigid thoracoscopy from India were identified.

Human DHODH has two domains: an alpha/beta-barrel domain containing the active site and an alpha-helical domain that forms the opening of a tunnel leading to the active site. Both inhibitors share a common binding site in this tunnel, and differences in the binding region govern drug sensitivity or resistance. The active site of human DHODH is generally similar to that of the previously reported bacterial active site. The greatest differences are that the catalytic base removing the proton from dihydroorotate is a serine rather than a cysteine, and that packing of the flavin mononucleotide in its binding site is tighter.

Head-to-head trials (n = 23), mostly examining synthetic DMARDs, showed no clinically important differences in efficacy among synthetic DMARDs (limited to methotrexate, leflunomide, and sulfasalazine) or among anti-tumor necrosis factor drugs (adalimumab, etanercept, and infliximab). Monotherapy with anti-tumor necrosis factor drugs resulted in better radiographic outcomes than did methotrexate but no important differences in clinical outcomes (for example, 20%, 50%, or 70% improvement according to American College of Rheumatology response criteria). Various combinations of biological DMARDs plus methotrexate improved clinical response rates and functional outcomes more than monotherapy with either methotrexate or biological DMARDs. In patients whose monotherapy failed, combination therapy with synthetic DMARDs improved response rates. Numbers and types of short-term adverse events were similar for biological and synthetic DMARDs. The evidence was insufficient to draw conclusions about differences for rare but serious adverse events for biological DMARDs.

Immunosuppression is currently the major approach used for the prevention and management of transplant rejection. In this overview, preclinical and clinical studies of the small molecule immunosuppressive agents are reviewed from the discovery of cyclosporine. More recently it was demonstrated that certain agents, namely tacrolimus (FK506), sirolimus (rapamycin), and mycophenolate mofetil (CellCept, MMF), act selectively on adaptive host responses at different stages of T- and B-cell cycles and spare nonspecific host resistance. Because each agent has its specific and significant toxic effects, it has been difficult to optimize the use of individual agents in monotherapy. Therefore, drug combination therapy has been of great interest in addition to the introduction of new small molecule agents, such as malononitrilamides [MNAs (leflunomide, FK778, FK779)], 15-deoxyspergualin (DSG) and its analogues, FTY720 and inhibitors of signal transduction, which offer promising modes of immunosuppression.

Leflunomide, a buy arava potent disease-modifying antirheumatic drug used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), exhibits anti-inflammatory, antiproliferative and immunosuppressive effects. Although most of the beneficial effects of leflunomide have been attributed to its antimetabolite activity, mainly in T cells, other targets accounting for its potency might still exist. Because of mounting evidence for a prominent role of dendritic cells (DCs) in the initiation and maintenance of the immune response in RA, we analyzed the effect of the active metabolite of leflunomide (A77 1726; LEF-M) on phenotype and function of human myleloid DCs at several stages in their life cycle. Importantly, DCs differentiated in the presence of LEF-M exhibited an altered phenotype, with largely reduced surface expression of the critical co-stimulatory molecules CD40 and CD80. Furthermore, treatment of DCs during the differentiation or maturation phase with LEF-M aborted successful DC maturation. Exogenous addition of uridine revealed that DC modulation by LEF-M was independent of its proposed ability as an antimetabolite. In addition, the ability of DCs to initiate T-cell proliferation and to produce the proinflammatory cytokines IL-12 and tumour necrosis factor-alpha was markedly impaired by LEF-M treatment. As a molecular mechanism, transactivation of nuclear factor-kappaB, an transcription factor essential for proper DC function, was completely suppressed in DCs treated with LEF-M. These data indicate that interference with several aspects of DC function could significantly contribute to the beneficial effects of leflunomide in inflammatory diseases, including RA.

Leflunomide (LEF) is a novel immunomodulator which has been reported to be efficacious in experimental models of systemic autoimmune diseases and in treating rheumatoid arthritis in man. Leflunomide's ability to ameliorate ocular disease processes was investigated in a model of autoimmune eye disease, experimental autoimmune uveitis (EAU). EAU was induced by the injection of retinal S-antigen (S-Ag) into the foot-pad of Lewis rats. Leflunomide, or the reference compound cyclosporin A (CSA), was administered orally or topically (to one eye) each day beginning on the day of S-Ag injection. Drug efficacy was measured by the suppression in clinical signs of ocular inflammation and confirmed by histology. Both oral and topical ocular treatment with LEF suppressed the ocular disease signs and symptoms and retinal necrosis and reduced the S-Ag antibody levels associated with EAU in a dose-dependent manner. Both LEF and CSA were able to inhibit totally the disease manifestations of EAU; however, a comparison of the IC50 and IC90 values indicate that LEF is more potent than CSA in inhibiting EAU. These results suggest that leflunomide may be useful for treating autoimmune diseases of the eye. buy arava

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic, pruritic, inflammatory skin condition that is associated with immune dysregulation and epidermal barrier dysfunction. The imbalance of the Th2 and Th1 pathways and their buy arava associated cytokines in AD presents as one facet of the pathogenic mechanisms. Changes in the T-cell populations and the associated cytokines during the acute and chronic phases of AD can cause variations in disease presentations and treatment responses. Continued discoveries in the immunopathogenesis of AD provide optimism for the development of efficacious therapeutic agents. Novel immunomodulatory therapies include apremilast, dupilumab, IL-37, omalizumab, rituximab, mepolizumab, infliximab, allergen-specific immunotherapy, Mycobacterium vaccae, and leflunomide. These agents serve as examples of how modulation in immunopathogenesis of AD can lead to therapeutic discoveries.

Recent clinical development programs for new therapeutic agents in rheumatoid arthritis have included assessment of radiographic progression comparing changes with treatment to placebo and active controls. Studies now use reliable methods of assessment and sufficient study length to detect radiographic changes. Although patient populations and characteristics differ, and radiographic scoring methods vary, the direction of a series of studies appears to indicate that leflunomide (LEF), methotrexate (MTX), sulfasalazine (SSZ), etanercept, infliximab, and IL-1ra are all effective in retarding radiographic progression, as measured by erosions and joint Voltaren 800 Mg space narrowing. Interpretation of radiograph data in future trials will be aided by utilization of common reading methods and by continuing comparison across differing rheumatoid arthritis protocol populations.

Ambient fine particulate matter (PM2.5) samples were collected from January to December 2007 to investigate the sources and chemical speciation in Palestine, Jordan, and Israel. The 24-h PM2.5 samples were collected on 6-day intervals at eleven urban and rural sites simultaneously. Major chemical components including metals, ions, and organic and elemental carbon were analyzed. The mass concentrations of PM2.5 across the 11 sites varied from 20.6 to 40.3 μg/m(3), with an average of 28.7 μg/m(3). Seasonal variation of PM2.5 concentrations was substantial, with higher average concentrations (37.3 μg/m(3)) in the summer (April-June) months compared to winter (October-December) months (26.0 μg/m(3)) due mainly to high contributions of sulfate and crustal components. PM2.5 concentrations in the spring were greatly impacted by regional dust storms. Carbonaceous mass was the most abundant component, contributing 40% to the total PM2.5 mass averaged Flagyl 300 Mg across the eleven sites. Crustal components averaged 19.1% of the PM2.5 mass and sulfate, ammonium, and nitrate accounted for 16.2%, 6.4%, and 3.7%, respectively, of the total PM2.5 mass. The results of this study demonstrate the need to better protect the health and welfare of the residents on both sides of the Jordan River in the Middle East.

UTL-5b is an anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic small-molecule tumor necrosis factor-alpha inhibitor and a structural analogue of the anti-arthritic drug, leflunomide. Leflunomide is known to be metabolized to teriflunomide, but the metabolites of UTL-5b have not been Protonix Medication Uses reported. The objective of this study was to investigate whether UTL-5b has a similar metabolic behavior as leflunomide. Preliminary studies showed that when exposed to microsomes in vitro with or without NADPH, UTL-5b disappeared within 30 min. To further investigate the microsomal metabolism, liquid chromatography-ultraviolet (LC-UV) and LC/tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) were employed to, respectively, monitor the microsomal metabolites and identify the structure of the metabolites using LC-full scan MS and LC combined with multiple-ion monitoring MS. Fragmentation determination was analyzed by two types of scans: product ion scans and precursor ion scan. The in vitro microsomal treatment of UTL-5b resulted in two major metabolites: 5-methylisoxazole-3-carboxylic acid and 2-chloroaniline. Thus, the in vitro metabolic behavior of UTL-5b appears to be different from that of leflunomide in that the isoxazole ring is cleaved.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a serious illness that can only be controlled by the appropriate use of disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs). In spite of the successful use of such substances, and of methotrexate in particular, a large number of patients still experience disease progression. Leflunomide and the two anti-TNF agents, infliximab and etanercept, were therefore warmly greeted as very welcome additions to the rheumatologist's armamentarium. These successful newcomers, their strengths and problems are the focus of the present review.
