In vitro effects of novel type M-V-O derivatives on Xanthine Oxidase.

In vitro effects of novel type M-V-O derivatives on Xanthine Oxidase. Cell Mol Biol (Noisy-le-grand). 2017 Dec 30;63(12):25-28 Authors: Kaya MO, Gül GÇK, Kurtuluş F Abstract Xanthine Oxidase (XO) is related with different diseases such as vascular, gout, nephropathy and renal stone diseases that are relevant to high uric acid levels and oxidative stress. Some common natural inhibitors of xanthine oxidase are known as rosmarinic acid and apigenin. With this study, we aimed to determine inhibitory effects of originally synthesized new generation transition metal vanadates on Xanthine Oxidase (XO) from bovine milk. Because, Xanthine oxidase inhibitors are typically used in the treatment of gout and nephropathy and renal stone diseases linked to hyperuricaemia. We found considerable IC50 constants for inhibition of XO. Among the synthesized compounds, Cu‒V‒O was found to be the most active (IC50 = 7.119 mM) for inhibition of XO.

Taking certain oral antibiotics may come with an unpleasant side effect, according to new research. A study published Thursday in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology found that taking any of five types of oral antibiotics was associated with a significantly higher risk of developing kidney stones — mineral and salt deposits that form in the kidneys and must be passed through the urinary tract. Kidney stones have grown much more common over the past few decades without a clear explanation as to why. The condition is, however, associated with bacterial changes in the intestines and urinary tract, leading ...

Current urate-lowering therapy (ULT) includes three direct acting drugs (allopurinol, febuxostat, Rasburicase) and at least four ‘indirect’ drugs with other important targets (canagliflozin, losartan, fenofibrate and sevelamer). Moreover, the alcalinization of urines using bicarbonate can be used to dissolve urate crystals and the clinician may discontinue several drugs are known to increase serum levels of uric acid, suc h as diuretics, aspirin, cyclosporine, theophylline, mycophenolate and ACE inhibitors. While there is a consensus to start ULT in cases of symptomatic hyperuricemia (gout, urate-nephrolithiasi...

The objective of this study is to analyze clinical characteristics associated with the formation of subcutaneous tophi among Chinese gout patients. It was a retrospective outpatient cohort study. Five thousand six hundred ninety-three gout patients treated at the Affiliated Hospital of Qingdao University from March 2011 to February 2016 were included and divided into the tophus group and non-tophus group according to the presence of megascopic tophus. Relevant clinical information and biochemical parameters were analyzed to identify potential risk factors for the incidence of subcutaneous tophi. There are significant difference (P

Follow me on Twitter @RobShmerling Ever wonder what other people are wondering about? I know I do. So, here are the top 10 health searches in Google for 2017. And just so you don’t have to look each one up, I’ve provided a brief answer. You’re welcome. 1.  What causes hiccups? I was surprised this one made it to the top 10 list of health searches. Maybe this search is common because hiccups are as mysterious as they are universal. I’ve written about hiccups before, but let’s just say the cause in any individual person is rarely known or knowable. Then again, the reason hiccups stop is als...

Molecules, Vol. 23, Pages 200: Tamm–Horsfall Protein is a Potent Immunomodulatory Molecule and a Disease Biomarker in the Urinary System Molecules doi: 10.3390/molecules23010200 Authors: Tsai-Hung Wu Ko-Jen Li Chia-Li Yu Chang-Youh Tsai Tamm–Horsfall protein (THP), or uromodulin (UMOD), is an 80–90-kDa phosphatidylinositol-anchored glycoprotein produced exclusively by the renal tubular cells in the thick ascending limb of the loop of Henle. Physiologically, THP is implicated in renal countercurrent gradient formation, sodium homeostasis, blood pressure regulation, and a defense molecule agai...

In this study, we aimed to examine the transport of xanthine dehydrogenase inhibitors via ABCG2. Our results show that ABCG2 transports oxypurinol, an active metabolite of allopurinol, whereas allopurinol and febuxostat, a new xanthine dehydrogenase inhibitor, are not substrates of ABCG2. The amount of oxypurinol transported by ABCG2 vesicles significantly increased in the presence of ATP, compared to that observed with mock vesicles. Since the half-life of oxypurinol is longer than that of allopurinol, the xanthine dehydrogenase-inhibiting effect of allopurinol mainly depends on its metabolite, oxypurinol. Our results ind...

Abstract Gout is an inflammatory disease manifested by the deposition of monosodium urate (MSU) crystals in joints, cartilage, synovial bursa, tendons or soft tissues. Gout is not a new disease, which was first documented nearly 5,000 years ago. The prevalence of gout has increased globally in recent years, imposing great disease burden worldwide. Moreover, gout or hyperuricemia is clearly associated with a variety of comorbidities, including cardiovascular diseases, chronic kidney disease, urolithiasis, metabolic syndrome, diabetes mellitus, thyroid dysfunction, and psoriasis. To prevent acute arthritis attacks and compli...

CONCLUSION: HUC is common in patients with PsA, especially in those with longer disease duration and obesity. Proper control of HUC and metabolic diseases may play a preventive role in improving PsA outcomes. PMID: 29196385 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

DiscussionRelapse of gout is common although delayed after discontinuation of ULT. Short-term prognosis after ULT discontinuation appears favorable if the serum urate level was low before ULT discontinuation. The results of this review are limited by the paucity of existing studies and their low quality. Further comparative studies should consider larger primary care populations and discontinuation of febuxostat.
