  Europe PMC is an archive of life sciences journal literature. Major advances in genetic and epigenetic profiling of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) have enhanced the understanding of key biological subsets of de novo and relapsed ALL, which has led to improved risk stratification of patients. These achievements have further defined critical leukaemia-associated pathways and somatic. Most of Albert's acridine papers and the first edition of his book used the old system but his later papers and the second edition of his book necessarily employed the revised system. This period of Albert's life concluded appropriately with the award of the DSc (London) in London years ().

Progress in achieving initial remission of disease in acute myeloblastic leukaemia (AML) has taken place in recent years, with rates of 70%–80% being reported [1–3]. This has been effected by different scheduling of drugs rather than by the introduction of new chemotherapeutic agents. HU, an anti-leukaemia agent with the capacity to increase foetal Hb, was introduced to treat sickle cell disease with significant clinical and symptomatic improvement. In a randomised double-blind study, the Multicentre Study of HU in Sickle Cell Anaemia (MSH), showed that this new drug could decrease episodes of painful crises, acute.

It was hypothesized that: (1) the.

Following the discovery in the late s of a “pro-survival” protein called BCL-2 that helps cancer cells to become immortal and resist treatments such as chemotherapy, researchers have developed of a compound which neutralises this vital cancer protein, and it is now in clinical trials to treat some types of leukaemia.

At a news conference in Washington, DC, attended by the US secretary of health and human services, Tommy Thompson, and the director of the National Cancer Institute, Dr Richard Klausner, the administration announced its approval of imatinib mesylate (Gleevec).

Some of the infectious diseases that have been tested in human clinical studies and showed an overall lowering of bacterial/fungal/viral load includes the following: E.

coli, Klebsiella pneumonia, Mycobacteria, Salmonella spp, Staphylococcus spp, Candida albicans, Herpes simplex, Human rhinovirus, and Vesicular stomatitis virus. Subsequent estimated parameters (mitochondrial membrane potential, Annexin V binding and Caspases 3/7 activity) clearly demonstrated that melittin induced apoptosis in leukaemia cells.

This is a very important step for research into the development of new potential anti-leukaemia. The cytotoxic and antiproliferative properties of many natural sesquiterpene-quinones and -hydroquinones from sponges offer promising opportunities for the development of new drugs.

A review dealing with different strategies for obtaining bioactive terpenyl quinones/hydroquinones is presented. The different synthetic approches for the preparation of the most relevant quinones/hydroquinones are.

Indeed, since the development of the anti-leukaemia drugs from C. roseus, many countries have signed up to an international protocol, the Convention on Biological Diversity, which gives countries sovereign rights over their biological resources.

The agreement aims to prevent so-called ‘bio-piracy’, whereby a company   Ferroptosis is a novel RCD with its unique morphological, biochemical and genetic hallmarks. Glutathione peroxidase 4 (GPX4) and system x c-are considered to be the primary signaling pathways associated with ferroptosis [].System x c-belongs to the family of heterodimeric amino acid transporters.

SLC7A11, an amino acid transporter, functions to exchange l-cystine and l-glutamate []. Abstract: Density Functional reactivity indices based QSAR study of 49 phenol derivatives is presented in this paper. Two different models to describe the anti leukaemia activity of phenols have been made.

First QSAR model includes molecular properties like molecular weight (Mw), hardness (η), chemical potential (µ), total energy, and electrophilicity index (ω). With regard to their distribution among Allium species, alliin and isoalliin are the major S-alk(en)ylcysteine sulfoxides in garlic and onion, respectively; methiin is widely distributed in many Allium plants and is also detected in some Brassica plants, and propiin is found at relatively low levels in.

These agents act in different ways including insect immune system activation or by direct impact on the target tumor cells or viruses. It has been shown that some of the insect peptides suppress viral gene and protein expression, rybosilate DNA, whereas others cause membrane lysis, induce apoptosis or.

The Plant.

The plant is currently enjoying an uprecedented demand worldwide and has potential as a high income earner for fresh cut flower growers.

Lessons from CML, a disorder of the hematopoietic stem cell. Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is a myeloproliferative disease associated with the t(9; 22) chromosomal translocation which encodes the oncogenic BCR-ABL fusion protein. This chimeric protein has tyrosine kinase activity and is essential for malignant transformation and the excessive myeloid cell expansion that characterizes CML.

LEUKAEMIA The transcript of a Witness Seminar held at the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine at UCL, London, on 15 May Edited by D A Christie and E M Tansey.Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) is a heterogeneous clonal disorder of haemopoietic progenitor cells and the most common malignant myeloid disorder in adults.

The median age at presentation for patients with AML is 70 years. In the past few years, research in molecular biology has been instrumental in deciphering the pathogenesis of the disease.This banner text can have markup.
