Mutagenicity and teratogenicity studies of vitacoxib in rats and mice

Publication date: Available online 13 August 2018Source: Toxicology ReportsAuthor(s): Jianzhong Wang, Feifei Sun, Shusheng Tang, Suxia Zhang, Jing Li, Xingyuan CaoAbstractVitacoxib is a new drug candidate for treatment of inflammation, pain and fever as selective cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors. In the current study, the mice sperm abnormality, mammalian erythrocyte micronucleus and in vivo chromosome aberration, and teratogenicity in SD rats were evaluated. Vitacoxib did not cause an increase in the frequency of structural chromosome aberrations, nor did it produce an increase in the number of micro nucleated polychromatic erythrocytes at dose of 1,250~5,000 mg/kg body weight (BW). There were no toxicological signs observed in teratogenicity test in female SD rats at dose of 200~5,000 mg/kg BW. Based on these results of these studies, vitacoxib does not appear to be observed mutagenicity and teratogenicity.

Authors: Ono Y, Yoshikura N, Takekoshi A, Ohe N, Hayashi H, Yamada M, Hayashi Y, Kimura A, Shimohata T Abstract A 57-year-old woman with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) receiving mechanical ventilation developed intractable right temporal headache. She was diagnosed with brain abscess secondary to chronic suppurative otitis media. In this case, the otitis media was caused by nasopharyngeal reflux associated with eustachian tube muscle weakness and a supine position. In addition, ALS patients under mechanical ventilation have a limited ability to convey their pain. Their complaints are often overlooked because m...

Authors: Ichijo M, Tsuchiya K, Kasai T, Inoshita N, Yoshimoto H, Yamada S, Kitamura K Abstract A 30-year-old woman with multiple ovarian cysts presented with high serum estradiol levels. She had a pituitary adenoma, but the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) concentration was within the normal range. The patient complained of neck pain and palpitations during the disease course, and laboratory results revealed thyrotoxicosis and a systemic inflammatory response with negative findings for anti-thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) receptor antibody and positive findings for anti-thyroglobulin and anti-thyroid peroxidase...

ConclusionsExternal beam APBI results in excellent long-term disease control. Good to excellent cosmetic outcomes are achieved in most patients, although increasing dose per fraction and greater percentage of irradiated breast were predictive of adverse posttreatment cosmetic outcomes. Select patients in “cautionary” and “unsuitable” consensus groupings do not appear to have inferior outcomes.
