Recurrence and metastasis remain the major cause of cancer mortality. Even for early-stage lung cancer, adjuvant chemotherapy yields merely slight increase to patient survival. EF-hand domain-containing protein D2 (EFHD2) has recently been implicated in recurrence of patients with stage I...

The carboxylic acid group of the anti-inflammatory (AI) drugs indo-methacin, (S)-naproxen and ibuprofen was covalently linked via a two-carbon ethyl spacer to a sulfohydroxamic acid moiety (CH(2)CH(2)SO(2)NHOH) to furnish a group of hybrid ester prodrugs that release nitric oxide (NO)...

A novel class of 1-(4-methanesulfonylphenyl and 4-aminosulfonylphenyl)-5-[4-(1-difluoromethyl-1,2-dihydropyrid-2-one)]-3-trifluoromethyl-1H-pyrazole hybrid cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2)/5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) inhibitory anti-inflammatory agents was designed. Replacement of the tolyl ring present in celecoxib by the N-difluoromethyl-1,2-dihydropyrid-2-one moiety provided compounds showing dual selective COX-2/5-LOX inhibitory activities. 1-(4-Aminosulfonylphenyl)-5-[4-(1-difluoromethyl-1,2-dihydropyrid-2-one)]-3-trifluoromethyl-1H-pyrazole exhibited good anti-inflammatory...

Ibuprofen is used for treatment and prevention of patent ductus arteriosus in low-birthweight infants. Its effects on regional circulations differ from those of indometacin. Because prophylactic indometacin reduces the frequency of severe intraventricular haemorrhage and patent ductus arteriosus, we aimed...
