Press Release – Flavonoid derivatives targeting NF-kappaB

Research Article: Cytotoxicity and Anti-inflammatory Activity of Flavonoid Derivatives Targeting NF-kappaB

The aim of the study was to develop new synthetic anti-inflammatory and cytotoxic agents targeting NF-kappaB

Nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) has been reported to regulate various genes involved in cancer and inflammation. Accordingly, drugs inhibiting NF-kappaB may possess both anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties. So there is a need to discover novel compounds which should not only be a potential lead but also less toxic and cost effective. In the view of this strategy, three series of flavanone derivatives (30 compounds in total) were synthesized followed by the characterization and establishment of the structure using various spectroscopic methods viz. UV, IR H1NMR, C13NMR and mass spectrometry. All 30 synthesized compounds were evaluated for anti-inflammatory and cytotoxic activity. In vivo anti-inflammatory activity of flavanone derivatives based on carrageenan-induced rat paw edema model identified compounds such as (10b), (1c) and (2c) as potent anti-inflammatory agent, whereas the compounds (10b), (6b), (4b), (2b), (6a), (4a), (5c) and (3c) have shown promising cytotoxicity against different cancer cell lines ( MCF-7, HeLa, COLO-205 and PC-3 cancer cell lines). Among the synthesized flavanone derivative, compounds (10b) and (4b) exhibited the maximum cytotoxic effect against different cancer cell lines. Furthermore, all the compounds were docked into the active site of NF-kappaB receptor to identify the most potential candidates. The top ranked compounds (10b, 4b) were subjected to cell cycle analysis using flow cytometer and have shown to induce cell cycle arrest mainly at G2/M phase. Promising activity of the compounds (10b) and (4b) demands further in vivo anti-cancer activity and clinical studies. Excellent correlation was observed between docking score and cytotoxic activity/anti-inflammatory potency of screened drugs. Docking studies revealed that carbonyl oxygen, NO2, OH, and OCH3 of the flavanone derivatives were involved in hydrogen bonding with various amino acids of the receptor. This confirms our hypothesis that conjugation of two pharmacophores might improve the pharmacological profile of synthesized compounds.

Bentham Science Journals indexed in The Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) by Thomson Reuters

The Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) has accepted to index two journals published by Bentham Science Publishers. The titles are: Recent Patents on Inflammation & Allergy Drug Discovery and Recent Patents on Endocrine, Metabolic & Immune Drug Discovery.

The Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) is a new index launched by Thomson Reuters, extending the universe of publications in Web of Science to include high-quality, peer-reviewed publications of regional importance and in emerging scientific fields.

Recent Patents on Inflammation & Allergy Drug Discovery and Recent Patents on Endocrine, Metabolic & Immune Drug Discovery are published by Bentham Science under the banner of ‘Patent Review titles’. The journals publish peer-reviewed review and research articles on important recent patents on these topics.

Article by Disease – “Role of Galectins in Allergic Disorders”

Article by Disease on “Allergy”


Background: Allergen avoidance, pharmacotherapy; with antihistamines, anti-leukotrienes, corticosteroids and bronchodilatorsas well as monoclonal antibodies; and allergen specific immunotherapy stand as confirmed approaches for the management of allergic disorders as asthma, allergic rhinitis/rhinoconjunctivitis, atopic dermatitis, food allergies and anaphylaxis. Galectins are members of animal lectin protein family, with binding specificity for β-galactoside sugars. These highly conserved proteins are known to be expressed in various effector cells of the immune system, exert immuno-regulatory activities, and enroll in tissue inflammation and regulation of immune homeostasis.

Objective: This review aims to explain the galectin family and influence of galectins in the immune mechanisms of allergic disorders.

Results: Galectins have multiple roles in innate and adaptive immunity. Intense research in the field of immunology related with galectins have given rise to several patent applications. Those, increasing in vivo efficacy of galectins for therapeutic applications, utilizing galectins for immune stimulation and prolongation of immune responses, utilization of them as disease markers are pioneers. As immune cells can be targeted by galectins, cells containing these molecules can be used for immune intervention. Regulation of cytokine productions by immune cells as IL-1β and IL-10 as well as dendritic cell functions by galectins may be efficient in limitation of some immune-mediated disorders.

Conclusion: Taken all together, better learning of galectin biology together with detailed revealing of galectin-immune system interactions have great potential for immune interventions targeting allergy-related disorders.

New Patents of Fixed Combinations of Nasal Antihistamines and Corticosteroids in Allergic Rhinitis

Author(s): Ole D. Wolthers


Abstract: During the last few years, fixed combinations of intranasal antihistamines and corticosteroids have been introduced for treatment of allergic rhinitis. The aim of this systematic review was to assess recent patents and clinical evidence for fixed combinations of intranasal antihistamines and intranasal corticosteroids in allergic rhinitis. Data base searches revealed that intranasal combinations of the antihistamine azelastine with the corticosteroids mometasone furoate, ciclesonide and fluticasone propionate, respectively, have been patented. Four randomized, double-blinded, parallelgroup, placebo-controlled, multicenter trials sponsored by the manufacturer evaluated the fixed combination of intranasal azelastine 125µg and fluticasone propionate 50µg administered as one dose per nostril b.i.d. in patients with moderate-tosevere symptomatic allergic rhinitis ≥ 12 years of age. Three of the studies were published as a meta-analysis which found the fixed combination of azelastine and fluticasone propionate statistically significantly more efficacious in reducing baseline total nasal symptom score by 5.7 as compared to azelastine (4.4; P < 0.001), fluticasone propionate (5.1; P < 0.001) and placebo (3.0; P < 0.001). The findings were supported by secondary assessments of scores of specific nasal and ocular symptoms.
