Application

Pentostatin has been used in in vivo anti-tumor studies. It has also been used along with cyclophosphamide as a selective B-cell immune suppression regimen to explore solid tumor therapy by selectively targeting stromal endothelial cells.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Pentostatin/2′-deoxycoformycin is used to treat patients with Waldenström′s macroglobulinemia.
Pentostatin is a ring-expanded nucleoside (REN) that potently inhibits adenosine deaminase, which leads to lymphocyte toxicity. Pentostatin is used as anticancer agent to treat leukemia (hairy cell leukemia and chronic lymphocytic leukemia) and is investigated as an agent to treat graft-versus-host disease (GVHD).

Early and accurate evaluation of immunotoxicity is crucial. However, there are few in vitro models for immunosuppressive evaluation. THP-1 cells has long been used for in vitro sensitivity evaluation. Whether it can be used for immunosuppressive evaluation remains unclear. In...

Vasicinone is a quinazoline alkaloid isolated from the Adhatoda vasica plant. In this study, we explored the neuroprotective effect and underlying molecular mechanism of vasicinone against paraquat-induced cellular apoptosis in SH-SY5Y cells. Vasicinone reduced the paraquat-induced loss of cell viability...
