Biochem/physiol Actions

Taurolidine is a broad spectrum antibiotic with antineoplastic activity, which induces apoptosis and decreases tumor cell proliferation. Taurolidine has been used with TNF-related-apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) to characterize synergistic responses in many apoptosis related signaling-proteins. Tauroline is also being used as a tool to study the various mechanisms of apoptosis and necrosis.
Taurolidine is an antibacterial agent that can be used for the treatment of peritonis. It has also been used as an antiendoxic substance for systematic inflammatory response syndrome and as an anti-angiogenic agent for tumors. Furthermore, studies have reported that taurolidine can be used for the prevention of multiple catheter-related bloodstream infections.

Preparation Note

Taurolidine is soluble in DMSO at a concentration that is greater than 20 mg/ml.

Sonodynamic therapy, in combination with ultrasound contrast agents, proved to enhance the uptake of chemotherapeutics in malignant cells. HT1080 fibrosarcoma cells were treated in vitro with a combination of ultrasound SonoVue™-microbubbles and taurolidine (TRD) plus tumor necrosis factor related apoptosis...

A catheter lock solution containing 1.35% taurolidine and 4% citrate could potentially disrupt bacterial surface adherence and consecutive biofilm production due to the anti-adherence properties of taurolidine and the anticlotting and chelator activities of both compounds. To compare the impact...
