In a previous study, we described a series of 28 aryl- and alkyl-substituted isothiouronium salts with antitumor activity and selectivity toward a leukemia cell line. Among the synthesized compounds, methyl (Z)-2-(isothioureidomethyl)-2-pentenoate hydrobromide (IS-MF08) showed conspicuous activity. In the present study...

To determine whether inhibiting cardiac carnitine palmitoyltransferase-1b (CPT-1b) improves obesity-related cardiomyopathy. Four-week-old male C57BL/6J mice were fed with high-fat diet (HFD) for 12 weeks to induce obesity. At 6 weeks of age, mice were subjected to intramyocardial injection with lentivirus...

We previously reported that μ-oxo N,N'-bis(salicylidene)ethylenediamine iron [Fe(Salen)], a magnetic organic compound, has direct anti-tumor activity, and generates heat in an alternating magnetic field (AMF). We showed that Fe(Salen) nanoparticles are useful for combined hyperthermia-chemotherapy of tongue cancer. Here, we...
