A non-invasive method is described for estimating dopamine beta-hydroxylase (DBH) activity in sympathetic neurons. Our assay is based on the measurement of the in vivo rate of tritiated water (THO) release from dopamine specifically labeled in the beta-position ([beta-3H]DA). In validation of this method, we have establsihed in human subjects that 1) THO release from [beta-3H]DA correlates with [beta-3H]norepinephrine metabolite excretion, and 2) partial inhibition of DBH with disulfiram (5.5 mg/kg for 4 days) causes parallel decreases in these two indices of dopamine beta-hydroxylation. Since there is a strong correlation (r = 0.89; P < 0.05) between the effect of disulfiram on THO release and the effect of the drug on [3H]-norepinephrine metabolite excretion, our data indicate that the rate at which THO is liberated from [beta-3H]DA into the total body water can be used as an in vivo index of DBH activity.

Neither oral tariquidar nor oral disulfiram increased brain uptake of (11)C-dLop. Injecting (11)C-dLop during tariquidar infusion, when plasma tariquidar concentrations reach their peak, resulted in a brain uptake of the radioligand approximately 5-fold greater than baseline. Brain uptake was similar with 2 and 4 mg of intravenous tariquidar per kilogram; however, the lower dose was better tolerated. Injecting (11)C-dLop after tariquidar infusion also increased brain uptake, though higher doses (up to 6 mg/kg) were required. Brain uptake of (11)C-dLop increased fairly linearly with increasing plasma tariquidar concentrations, but we are uncertain whether maximal uptake was achieved.

Preparations of sheep liver cytoplasmic aldehyde dehydrogenase obtained by published methods were found by analytical isoelectric focusing in the pH range 5--8 to contain 5--10% by weight of the mitochondrial aldehyde dehydrogenase. Under the conditions used the pI of the cytoplasmic enzyme is 6.2 and that of the mitochondrial enzyme 6.6. The mitochondrial enzyme can be removed from the preparation by selective precipitation of the cytoplasmic enzyme with (NH4)2SO4. Kinetic experiments and inhibition experiments with disulfiram show that the properties of the two sheep liver enzymes are so different that the presence of 10% mitochondrial enzyme in preparations of the cytoplasmic enzyme can introduce serious errors into results. Our results suggest that the presence of 10 microM-disulfiram in assays may completely inactivate the pure cytoplasmic enzyme. This result is in contrast with a previous report [kitson (1978) Biochem. U. 175, 83--90].

This study supports the position that the experience of an acetaldehyde reaction is not necessary for disulfiram's action and does not lead to a better treatment outcome. Hence, there is no evidence for the necessity of a test drink before the initiation of a supervised disulfiram therapy.

The emergence of large, computerized pharmacoepidemiologic databases has enabled us to study drug utilization with the individual user as the statistical unit. A recurrent problem in such analyses, however, is the overwhelming volume and complexity of data. We here describe a graphical approach that effectively conveys some essential utilization parameters for a drug. The waiting time distribution for a group of drug users is a charting of their first prescription presentations within a specified time window. For a drug used for chronic treatment, most current users will be captured at the beginning of the window. After a few months, the graph will be dominated by new, incident users. As examples, we present waiting time distributions for insulin, ulcer drugs, systemic corticosteroids, antidepressants, and disulfiram. Appropriately analyzed and interpreted, the waiting time distributions can provide information about the period prevalence, point prevalence, incidence, duration of use, seasonality, and rate of prescription renewal or relapse for specific drugs. Each of these parameters has a visual correlate. The waiting time distributions may be an informative supplement to conventional drug utilization statistics, and possibly also a useful screening tool for unusual prescribing patterns.

A total of 595 patients (48.4%) were diagnosed with depression (DSM-IV criteria). The prevalence of SUD (excluding nicotine dependence) in this group was 18.1%. The group with SUD had a significantly larger proportion of males, young adults, patients seen in public general hospitals, and non-managed care public plans. No significant group differences were found for primary payer, locus of care, length of treatment, type of current or past treatment, and prescription of medications. Only 2.2% of SUD patients were prescribed with an anti-SUD medication (i.e., disulfiram and naltrexone).

A rapid and simple HPLC-ED method is described to identify and measure catecholamines (CTs) and their major metabolites in immune cells. Using this method, intracellular CTs were quantified in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs), T and B lymphocytes, monocytes and granulocytes. Immune cell subsets were separated by density gradient centrifugation and immunomagnetic cell sorting. CTs were also found in the human hematopoietic cell lines NALM-6 (pre-B) and (in smaller amounts) in Jurkat (T lymphoblastoid) and U937 (promonocytic). In cultured PBMCs, intracellular CTs were reduced by both the tyrosine hydroxylase inhibitor alpha-methyl-p-tyrosine and the chromaffin granule depletant reserpine. In NALM-6 cells, both alpha-methyl-p-tyrosine and the dopamine-beta-hydroxylase inhibitor disulfiram reduced intracellular CTs, supporting the presence of active synthetic pathways in these cells. Since sympathoadrenergic mechanisms play a key role in the interactions between the immune system and the nervous system, these findings may be relevant for a better understanding of the neuro-immune network.

The effects of carbon disulfide (CS2), diethyldithiocarbamate (DTC) and disulfiram (DS) on hepatic drug metabolism were studied in a noncirculating and hemoglobin-free rat liver perfusion system using p-nitroanisole (p-NA) as a substrate. Infusion of 1 mumol of CS2 into a normal rat liver instantaneously lowered the free p-nitrophenol (p-NP) concentration in the effluent perfusate; however, the effects on the levels of its glucuronide and sulfate conjugates were much less marked. The suppression of p-NP production by CS2 was also observed in livers isolated from phenobarbital (PB)- and 3-methylcholanthrene (3-MC)-treated rats; to a greater extent, in the normal and 3-MC groups. Partial recovery was observed in the normal and PB-treated groups, but it was slow and slight in the 3-MC-treated group. Infusion of DTC, up to 20 mumol, did not lower free p-NP levels, but a slight transient increase was noted, especially in the 3-MC-group. Using 50 mumol of DTC, a slight suppression resulted. DS, up to 20 mumol, did not decrease p-NP production, but rather gradually increased it, especially in the 3-MC-treated groups. Without the p-NP infusion, about 60-70% of the infused DS (10 mumol) was recovered in the effluent perfusate as DTC plus its glucuronide conjugate, the formation of the latter being greatly enhanced by the inducer treatments and markedly suppressed during the p-NP infusion. In this paper, these results are discussed with regards to the mechanisms of drug metabolism inhibition by DS administration.

To examine the roles of oxygen free radicals in the inhibition of tumor cell proliferation, we have used disulfiram (DS), a metal-chelator, to inactivate superoxide dismutase and ascorbic acid (AsA) to inhibit catalase. Simultaneous addition of DS and AsA to Meth A tumor cells or Ehrlich ascites tumor cells induced marked inhibition of the cell proliferation assessed by [3H]thymidine uptake and trypan blue dye exclusion method. Similar augmented inhibition of Meth A tumor cell proliferation was observed when the cells were pretreated with DS and AsA. However, the addition of catalase (2000 u/ml) nullified the augmentation of anti-proliferative effect which can be induced in the combined use of DS and AsA. These results suggest that the steady-state increase of intracellular oxygen free radicals within tumor cells could be induced in the combined use of DS and AsA.

Quinazoline oxide--an intermediate in chlordiazepoxide synthesis--is the most potent contact allergen in the pharmaceutical industry. Penicillins proved to be potent allergens. Conditions of the technological process favor development of hypersensitivity to tetracyclines. No single case of allergy to erythromycin was noted. In case of employees hypersensitive to disulfiram and aminophylline cross reactions with compounds of similar structure were observed. The authors discuss also some problems concerning contact allergy in all persons occupationally dealing with various medicines.

Two cases of disulfiram peripheral neuropathy are discussed. The first case is that of a 25-year-old Caucasian woman who was exposed to disulfiram therapy for a total of 8 months and developed pain and stiffness that prevented her from walking. The second case is that of a 46-year-old Caucasian woman who developed sudden-onset numbness in her lower extremities with progression to pain. Her symptoms improved over the course of 2 months after cessation of disulfiram therapy. In both cases, symptoms improved after cessation of disulfiram therapy.

A 39-year-old woman developed a severe sensorimotor polyneuritis after simultaneous ingestion of ethanol and disulfiram in high doses. The disorder was similar to other cases of disulfiram neuropathy, but was acute and more severe. Disulfiram can cause a fulminant polyneuropathy that is not always benign and reversible.

The treatment of cocaine dependence is difficult as no approved pharmacotherapy is available as yet. However, in preclinical and clinical trials, a variety of compounds were tested for suitability as inhibitors of craving for and relapse into the use of cocaine, among these antidepressants, antiepileptics, dopamine agonists, disulfiram, and naltrexone. Nalmefene, a structural derivative of naltrexone, shares with its parent compound approval (granted by the European Medical Agency in 2013) as a medication for the treatment of alcohol addiction in the European Union. It differs from naltrexone by a higher affinity for the δ opioid-receptors and a partial agonistic affinity to the κ opioid-receptors. It should be noted that patients addicted to cocaine show a considerable increase in κ receptors in the nucleus accumbens. This report describes the case of an abstinent cocaine-addicted patient regularly afflicted with cravings for cocaine. The patient took as-needed nalmefene for 5 months whenever she developed a craving for cocaine. For most of these interventions, the patient reported an abatement of craving and could avoid relapsing into cocaine consumption. This effect may be accounted for by nalmefene acting, other than naltrexone, as a partial agonist of the κ opioid-receptors. Therefore, nalmefene might be a promising new option in the pharmacological repertoire for the treatment of cocaine addiction.

The thresholds for pentylenetetrazol and lidocaine-induced clonic convulsions were significantly influenced by manipulation of brain biogenic amines. Pretreatment with inhibitors of monoamine synthesis, alpha-methyl-p-tyrosine and p-chlorophenylalanine, caused significant decreases in brain monoamine contents and pentylenetetrazol seizure threshold, while the threshold for lidocaine-induced convulsions was significantly increased by either treatment. Moreover, the inhibitor of dopamine-beta-hydroxylase, disulfiram, caused significant decrease in brain noradrenaline (NA) and significant increase in brain dopamine (DA) contents. The threshold for pentylenetetrazol-induced convulsions was decreased by treatment with disulfiram, while that of lidocaine was increased by the same treatment. Furthermore, treatment with L-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-DOPA) caused significant increase in brain DA contents, while 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) treatment caused significant increase in brain 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) contents, but the thresholds for lidocaine and pentylenetetrazol-induced convulsions were not influenced by either treatment. These results may suggest that the brain monoaminergic systems, different from their ability to inhibit control of pentylenetetrazol seizures, act to potentiate lidocaine-induced convulsions.

The behavioral therapies evaluated did not significantly differ in effectiveness for African Americans and whites, suggesting that they are broadly applicable across these ethnic groups. Findings also suggest possible strategies for improving retention of African Americans in treatment. Such strategies might include offering treatment with a medication component and better addressing participants' treatment expectations.

Abstinence behaviour after disulfiram implantation has been investigated in 21 chronic alcoholics. The blood levels of disulfiram and its metabolites, carbon disulfide (CS2) and reduced disulfiram (diethyldithiocarbamate) were determined and the blood levels of patients with implants were compared with those of patients receiving disulfiram orally. The blood levels in the implanted patients were significantly lower than those of the group taking disulfiram orally. No metabolites were detectable after 3 months, despite the sensitive method employed. Nevertheless, 14 of the 21 chronic alcoholics remained abstinent for 6 months after implantation. This result is probably due in the main to psychotherapeutic guidance.

In a double-blind crossover study, 8 patients with classical migraine received disulfiram (400 mg/day) for 6 days, alternating with matched placebo tablets at 2 weekly intervals. Intravenous dopamine and tyramine pressor tests were performed on the 3rd and 6th days of each phase, respectively. 50-75% of patients experienced migraine attacks within 24 h of a test. There was no difference in the incidence of attacks between dopamine and tyramine injections. The number of migraine-free days was more during the placebo week than during disulfiram treatment (p less than 0.05). The post-tyramine migraine index correlated directly with the amount of tyramine administered during the dose-response test (r = 0.66), but no such relationship was found with dopamine. In a further study, post-tyramine migraine was observed in only 1 of 5 patients treated with propranolol (80 mg/day) for 4 weeks. Neither disulfiram nor propranolol influenced the tyramine pressor sensitivity. It is concluded that increased adrenergic activity is responsible for more frequent attacks during disulfiram medication. A similar mechanism probably is responsible for post-dopamine/tyramine migraine in susceptible subjects. It is unlikely that tyramine plays any specific role, except via its effect on the adrenergic system, in the pathogenesis of migraine attacks. However, the tyramine challenge test can be useful in the evaluation of a putative antimigranous activity of a new drug.

The literature search strategy included: electronic searches of Cochrane Library holdings, EMBASE, MEDLINE, PsycLIT, Biological Abstracts and LILACS; scans of reference lists of relevant articles, personal communications, conference abstracts, unpublished trials from the pharmaceutical industry and book chapters on the treatment of cocaine dependence. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) focusing on the use of antidepressants (ADs), carbamazepine (CBZ), dopamine agonists (DAs) and other drugs used in the treatment of cocaine dependence were included. The reviewers extracted data independently, and relative risks (RR) with 95% confidence interval (CI) were estimated. Qualitative assessments were carried out using a Cochrane validated checklist. Where possible, analysis was carried out according to 'intention-to-treat' principles.

Pharmacological relapse prevention in alcoholism is a rather new clinical field with few drugs being available. Acamprosate, acting predominantly via glutamatergic pathways, and the opioid receptor antagonist naltrexone, were both shown to be efficient in improving rates for continuous abstinence, and not relapsing to heavy drinking in a number of clinical trials and meta-analyses. There are conflicting data on both drugs, especially for acamprosate, according to some recent US studies. However, overall, the evidence is good. Both drugs are approved in most European countries and the US. Efficacy data for disulfiram are mixed; it is a second-line medication compared with other drugs, and is probably most effective when used in a supervised setting. Recently, anticonvulsants including carbamazepine and topiramate have been discussed as possible anti-craving drugs, but there is still limited evidence for their efficacy. Although there is a significant comorbidity for alcoholism with affective disorder, anxiety and schizophrenia, relatively few controlled clinical trials have been performed in this area. Tricyclics have been found to be more effective than serotonin reuptake inhibitors in improving depressive symptoms in these patients.

Compared with aminoglycosides, chloramphenicol, sulfonamides, tetracyclines, and even penicillins, the cephalosporins represent a remarkably safe class of antibiotics. Among the cephalosporins, the extended spectrum, third generation agents developed generally produce few side effects and appear to be less allergenic than the penicillins. Nephrotoxicity has not been a problem at recommended doses. Some third generation agents can cause hypoprothrombinemia if not administered with vitamin K, and disulfiram-like reactions occur with some agents because of the presence of a thiomethyl tetruzole moiety affixed to the cephem nucleus. There is a greater incidence of diarrhea associated with the agents excreted through a primarily biliary route, and this may contribute to the selection of drug resistant bacteria. Some agents are less active against staphylococci and their use may result in an increased incidence of superinfection or overgrowth of enterococci. If attention is given to the potential for adverse effects, many of these problems can be avoided and the third generation cephalosporins can be used safely in hospitals, nursing homes, and home care settings.

Adverse reactions to various antibacterial drugs were compared in a review of the following: multiple-dose studies of cefotaxime (n = 3,463), cefazolin (n = 554), the combination gentamicin-clindamycin (n = 163), and cefoxitin (n = 18); prophylactic studies of cefotaxime (n = 300) and cefazolin (n = 149); and single-dose studies of cefotaxime (n = 314) and penicillin G procaine (n - 265). The demographic and background characteristics of the groups were similar. Results of extensive pretreatment and posttreatment laboratory tests, measures of vital signs, and physical examinations revealed no clinically important intergroup differences. In the multiple-dose studies, side effects were reported in 9.8% of the cefotaxime, 3.8% of the cefazolin, 17.2% of the gentamicin-clindamycin, and 16.7% of the cefoxitin patients. The most frequent side effects were reactions at the injection site, of the skin and appendages, and of the digestive and urogenital systems, the only significant difference being fewer injection-site reactions in the cefazolin group than in the other three groups. In the prophylactic studies one cefotaxime patient reported rash and pruritus. In the single-dose studies, side effects were reported in 1.6% of the cefotaxime and 4.2% of the penicillin patients. Side effects sufficiently severe to warrant drug discontinuation were reported in 2.1% of the cefotaxime, 0.7% of the cefazolin, 1.8% of the gentamicin-clindamycin, and in none of the cefoxitin patients. Posttreatment prolongation of prothrombin time was found in one cefotaxime patient, whose pretreatment value was also abnormal, and in two gentamicin-clindamycin patients. No patient deaths were attributed to any of the drugs.

Randomised controlled trials (RCTs) on the efficacy of antipsychotics for the treatment of schizophrenic patients with comorbid SUD are reviewed and analysed on the basis of a systematic literature search (PubMed) ranging from 1985 to 2015. On the same basis, findings from RCTs on the efficacy of psychotropic and other medications used for primary SUD are summarised, and the main issues liable to influence treatment choice are discussed, including pharmacodynamic as well as pharmacokinetic interactions, adherence, medical comorbidity and the impact on brain structure.

Proteinuria, hematuria and leukocyturia in chronic alcoholics were mostly pronounced in abstinence, particularly in those with a long-term alcoholism. In proportion to alcohol d s-intoxication treatment, their urinalyses normalized. Being hospitalized in a sober state the patients had insignificantly elevated or practically normal urinalyses. Disulfiramum tests performed both in abstinence or sobriety demonstrated pronounced abnormalities in urinalyses. In the course of disulfuramum treatment in the absence of alcohol tests urinalyses normalized completely. Urinalysis follow-up demonstrated the appearance of renal failure due to hemodynamic disorders that ran the pattern of renal sensitization due to the effect of acetaldehyde production in alcohol tests.

Disulfiram administration markedly inhibited chlorzoxazone 6-hydroxylation by more than 95%, but did not affect metabolism of debrisoquine or mephenytoin. Caffeine N3-demethylation was decreased by 34% (P < 0.05). Monoacetyldapsone concentrations were markedly elevated by disulfiram administration resulting in a nearly 16-fold increase in the dapsone acetylation index, calculated as the plasma concentration ratio of monoacetyldapsone to dapsone. CYP-mediated dapsone N-hydroxylation was not significantly altered.

Selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) has been used to measure simultaneously the concentrations of both carbon disulphide and acetone in exhaled breath following the ingestion of a single dose of disulfiram (Antabuse). Carbon disulphide is a product of the metabolism of disulfiram and is excreted mainly through the lungs. Acetone is a product of normal metabolism and appears in the breath of all individuals. These breath analyses were performed in single exhalations and the results were available in real time. The levels of breath acetone and carbon disulphide were compared with levels obtained from a control subject who had not ingested disulfiram. Breath carbon disulphide was seen to increase from 15 p.p.b. to 618 p.p.b. over a 28-hour period, in the single individual tested buy antabuse , following ingestion of disulfiram, while acetone levels increased from 300 p.p.b. (normal) to over 4000 p.p.b. (greatly elevated). No such increases were seen in the breath of the control subject over the same period. An obvious positive correlation between breath carbon disulphide and acetone concentrations following disulfiram ingestion is seen and discussed.

Dapsone toxicity is putatively initiated by formation of a hydroxylamine metabolite by cytochromes P450. In human liver microsomes, the kinetics of P450-catalyzed N-oxidation of dapsone were biphasic, with the Michaelis-Menten constants of 0.14 +/- 0.05 and 0.004 +/- 0.003 mmol/L and the respective maximum velocities of 1.3 +/- 0.1 and 0.13 +/- 0.04 nmol/mg protein/min (mean +/- SEM). Troleandomycin (40 mumol/L) inhibited hydroxylamine formation at 100 mumol/L dapsone by 50%; diethyldithiocarbamate (150 mumol/L) and tolbutamide (400 mumol/L) inhibited at 5 mumol/L dapsone by 50% and 20%, respectively, suggesting that the low-affinity isozyme is CYP3A4 and the high-affinity isozymes are 2E1 and 2C. Disulfiram, 500 mg, 18 hours before a 100 mg oral dose of dapsone in healthy volunteers, diminished area under the hydroxylamine plasma concentration-time curve by 65%, apparent formation clearance of the hydroxylamine by 71%, and buy antabuse clearance of dapsone by 26%. Disulfiram produced a 78% lower concentration of methemoglobin 8 hours after dapsone.

1. On the basis of kinetic properties and sensitivity to pyrazole inhibition, it is shown that liver alcohol dehydrogenase present in human mainly corresponded to class I and in rat to class ADH-3 which differed in a number of parameters. 2. Two different aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) isoenzymes were detected in both human and rat liver. The human isoenzymes corresponded to the ALDH-I and ALDH-II type. 3. In the rat, one isoenzyme had low Km and showed similar activity than in human liver but differed in their sensitivity to both disulfiran and nitrofazole inhibition whereas the other presented high Km and showed greater activity than the human one. 4. Caution must be therefore buy antabuse paid when extrapolating to human subjects the data on ethanol metabolism obtained with rats.

The effects of acute and short-term administration of tryptophan or tryptophan plus ethanol on serotonin [5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)] and two of its metabolites, 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) and 5-hydroxytryptophol (5-HTPL), in the locus coeruleus were investigated in rats by using the microdialysis method. In addition, the acute effects of these drugs on noradrenaline and its metabolite 4-hydroxy-3-methoxymandelic acid (HMMA) were addressed. A single co-administration of tryptophan buy antabuse (50 mg/kg, i.p.) and ethanol (1.25 g/kg, i.p.) did not change the concentrations of either noradrenaline or its metabolite in the locus coeruleus. In contrast, administration of tryptophan (50 mg/kg, i.p.) for three consecutive days caused an increase in the concentration of 5-HIAA, but not that of 5-HT, in the locus coeruleus. Combined administration of tryptophan plus ethanol for 3 days resulted in marked increases in 5-HIAA concentrations in the locus coeruleus, but not in 5-HTPL concentrations. However, administration of ethanol (1.25 g/kg) for 3 days had no effect on the concentrations of 5-HT and its metabolites. The increased 5-HIAA concentration that resulted with combined tryptophan plus ethanol administration was remarkably suppressed by disulfiram. Moreover, in comparison with tryptophan-treated rats, the behavioral sign of teeth-chattering was significantly detected in tryptophan plus ethanol-treated rats, but the enhancement of behavioral signs with combined treatment was markedly suppressed by disulfiram. Results of the current study seem to indicate that the stimulation of 5-HT metabolism in locus coeruleus serotonergic neurons by tryptophan was strengthened by the simultaneous administration of ethanol in short-term experiments, and that the increased 5-HIAA concentrations in the locus coeruleus are responsible for behavioral activation.

The benefits of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, disulfiram, and lithium have not been clear for people with alcohol dependence. While the results of many studies have suggested that opioid agonists increase alcohol consumption, others have shown that mu-opioid antagonists and partial agonists reduce alcohol consumption. The results from animal studies suggest that these agents may prevent the reinforcing effects of alcohol consumption. Based on the results of those animal studies, some opioid antagonists, such as, naltrexone, nalmefene, have been studied for their buy antabuse benefits in treating alcohol dependence.

Cefmenoxime was evaluated in an open trial consisting of 41 patients. Forty infections in 36 patients could be evaluated. Thirteen patients had pyelonephritis due to Escherichia coli (two bacteremic), Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae, or Streptococcus faecalis; all improved and 12 of 13 were clinically cured, but one relapse (S. faecalis) occurred at two weeks. Six patients with cystitis due to E. coli, Citrobacter freundii, Serratia marcescens, P. aeruginosa, or S. faecalis all improved, but relapse or reinfection, or both, occurred in five due to P. aeruginosa, S. faecalis, C. fruendii, or E. coli. Neurogenic bladder or other complications were present in five of 13 patients with pyelonephritis and five of six with cystitis. Ten patients with pneumonia and one with tracheobronchitis due to Hemophilus influenzae, S. pneumoniae, S. agalactiae, or Neisseria meningitidis all improved and seven had resolution without relapse, but P. aeruginosa emerged in two patients, one of whom buy antabuse died. Eight soft tissue infections due to Staphylococcus aureus, Peptococcus prevotti, Streptococcus species, or infections of mixed origin resolved in six. Sterility of blood cultures was obtained in one patient with endocarditis due to S. anginosus, but other therapy was substituted. Clinical resolution of the toxic shock syndrome and subsequent negative endocervical cultures for S. aureus occurred in one. Granulocytopenia of unverified cause in four (with less than 1,500 mm3) and two (with less than 2,000 mm3) was reversible. Headache during treatment occurred in six patients and a possible disulfiram-like effect in three. Elevations of serum glutamic oxalacetic transaminase and alkaline phosphatase occurred in five, Coombs' positivity in two, and diarrhea in three. Clinical efficacy of cefmenoxime was significant. Possible side effects require further study.

Several transition series metals (copper, cadmium, zinc and mercury) and the sulfhydryl reagent, sodium arsenite, enhance the synthesis of specific proteins in chick embryo cells and in human foreskin cells in culture. The proteins are visible 1--3 h after exposure to concentrations ranging from 10 microM to 100 microM depending upon which reagent is used. These proteins comigrate on acrylamide gel electropherograms with the proteins induced by two copper-chelating drugs, kethoxal bis(thiosemicarbazone) and disulfiram, and by heat shock. However, these proteins migrate in a significantly different manner than do the canavanine-enhanced proteins. The four proteins induced in chick embryo cells are distinct from one another as determined by partial proteolytic mapping. Simlarly buy antabuse , the three proteins induced in human cells are distinct. However, the 100-kilodalton and the 70-kilodalton proteins from chick and from human cells appear to be related as judged by this mapping procedure. The 70 kilodalton protein enhanced by kethoxal bis(thiosemicarbazone), disulfiram, arsenite and heat shock have a high degree of similarity according to this technique. The arsenite and canavanine-enhanced 100-kilodalton proteins are related as are the arsenite-enhanced 70-kilodalton and the canavanine-enhanced 75-kilodalton proteins. The canavanine-enhanced 30 kilodalton protein resembles the arsenite-enhanced 25-kilodalton protein rather than the 35-kilodalton species. In view of these findings, it appears that a variety of treatments, namely, chelating drugs, transition series metals, sulfhydryl reagents, heat shock, and amino acid analogous can induced similar, if not identical, proteins in eukaryotic cells.

Patients with alcohol problems come to their primary care physicians buy antabuse at different points along the spectrum of experiences with alcohol; therefore, physicians need to be able to respond with a variety of interventions. In addition, patients present in different stages of change, and physicians need to be aware of where the patient is in that continuum. Evidence shows that less intensive, outpatient treatment may be as beneficial as inpatient treatment for some patients and that primary care physicians can offer some of their patients relatively simple interventions that are effective. Medications such as disulfiram offer little in the treatment of alcoholism but may be of benefit in selected situations. Of greater benefit are more complex psychosocial interventions carried out by a team of health care professionals.

The authors assayed platelet monoamine oxidase (MAO), plasma amine oxidase (AO), and red cell catechol-O-methyl transferase (COMT buy antabuse ) in 32 male alcoholics before they began disulfiram treatment. Seven subjects developed psychotic reactions to disulfiram; these 7 had significantly lower pretreatment MAO and AO levels and significantly higher COMT than the patients who had no adverse reactions to disulfiram, which suggests that severe behavioral reactions to disulfiram are associated with differences in enzyme activities.

The increase in 1,4-naphthoquinone-2-sulfonate (NQS)-induced hemolysis by the superoxide dismutase inhibitor diethyldithiocarbamate (DEDC) was formerly attributed to increased superoxide anion levels in the erythrocyte. Our results show that removal of DEDC after preincubation and prior to the addition of NQS did not produce a significant increase in hemolysis, which suggests that hemolysis is primarily caused by the reaction products of DEDC with buy antabuse NQS and not to the inactivation of superoxide dismutase. Disulfiram, the oxidized product of DEDC, was found to be the main product formed when excess DEDC was reacted with NQS. Oxygen uptake also occurred and hydrogen peroxide was formed. The latter caused the oxidation of DEDC to disulfiram as catalase prevented disulfiram formation. Disulfiram was found to readily hemolyze erythrocytes at low concentrations as well as to crosslink the proteins in the erythrocyte membrane. Furthermore, disulfiram-induced hemolysis was markedly enhanced in glutathione-depleted erythrocytes. Disulfiram was subsequently found to readily oxidize glutathione in red blood cells. When equimolar concentrations of DEDC and NQS were reacted, the major product formed was the diethyldithiocarbamate:1,4-naphthoquinone (DEDC:NQS) conjugate. However, the principal mediator of erythrocyte hemolysis when excess DEDC is reacted with 1,4-naphthoquinone-2-sulfonate is disulfiram, whose mode of action may be to modify membrane protein sulfhydryls.

This study was carried out to evaluate the effects of carmofur (Mifurol), a masked compound of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), in preventing postoperative recurrence of urogenital carcinoma (especially in bladder cancer). Carmofur was given orally at the dose of 300 approximately 600 mg/day to 134 patients (90 males and 44 females) after the resection. Out of 134 patients, 121 patients were evaluable and the rate of their recurrence was 10.7%. The rate of cumulative nonrecurrence for 65 patients it was 96.0, 73.0 and 60.8% in 1, 2 and 3 years, respectively. The group of curative resection demonstrated a higher cumulative nonrecurrence rate than that of noncurative or palliative resection group. In considering the resection methods, transurethral resection of bladder tumor group demonstrated a higher rate than partial or total cystectomy. The average concentration of 5-FU in serum was 0.65 microgram/ml at 120 minutes after oral administration buy antabuse of 200 mg of carmofur. Moreover, the concentration of 5-FU (15 approximately 35 micrograms/ml) in urine was higher than that of carmofur. The rate of side effects that appeared was 19.6%. The side effects were hot feeling (12.2%), pollakisuria (4.3%), anorexia (4.3%), an antabuse-like reaction by drinking (3.8%) and so on. These results were similar to those already reported.

The effect of disulfiram, [1-14C]disulfiram and some other thiol reagents on the activity of cytoplasmic aldehyde dehydrogenase from sheep liver was studied. The results are consistent with a rapid covalent interaction between disulfiram and the enzyme, and inconsistent with the notion that disulfiram is a reversible competitive inhibitor of cytoplasmic aldehyde dehydrogenase. There is a non-linear relationship between loss of about 90% of the enzyme activity and amount of disulfiram added; possible reasons for Sinemet Storage Temperature this are discussed. The remaining approx. 10% of activity is relatively insensitive to disulfiram. It is found that modification of only a small number of groups (one to two) per tetrameric enzyme molecule is responsible for the observed loss of activity. The dehydrogenase activity of the enzyme is affected more severely by disulfiram than is the esterase activity. Negatively charged thiol reagents have little or no effect on cytoplasmic aldehyde dehydrogenase. 2,2'-Dithiodipyridine is an activator of the enzyme.

This work was initiated by the lack of a sensitive method for the determination of disulfiram and its metabolites in blood of patients treated with this drug. A method is described which allows the separate determination of carbon disulfide, free diethyldithiocarbamate and disulfides derived from disulfiram with adequate precision in 10 ml patient blood. It is based on a spectrophotometric determination of a yellow compound formed by trapping carbon disulfide produced from diethyldithiocarbamate and disulfiram in an ethanolic solution of diethylamine and copper(II)-acetate. Good quantitation of disulfiram and diethyldithiocarbamate in blood was achieved by trapping carbon disulfide Purchase Viagra produced when formic acid and cystein were added to the samples. During daily administration of 200 mg disulfiram to humans, concentrations of zero to 0.6 mug carbon disulfide and 0.2 to 1.0 mug diethyldithiocarbamate per ml blood were found using this method.

The effects of four solvents and 37 xenobiotics and endogenous steroids on intestinal and hepatic microsomal aryl hydrocarbon hydroxylase (AHH) activity were determined. In general, hepatic AHH was more sensitive than intestinal AHH to inhibition by a wide variety of xenobiotics. Acetone, ethanol, dimethyl formamide, triamcinolone acetonide, 17 alpha-propyltestosterone, metronidazole, cimetidine and butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) activated or stimulated intestinal AHH activity while inhibiting hepatic AHH activity at the same concentrations. Ethoxyquin, progesterone, pregnenolone acetate, deoxycorticosterone acetate, tamoxifen and SKF 525-A exerted markedly different concentration-dependent inhibitions of intestinal and liver AHH activities. The most potent inhibitors of AHH activity Augmentin 650 Mg were captan, BHA, chlorpromazine, thioridazine, disulfiram and menadione. The ability of steroids to inhibit AHH activity correlated well with lipophilicity.

Acetaldehyde is the first and principal metabolite of ethanol administered systemically. To its rise in blood, after administration of disulfiram, is ascribed the aversive reaction that should discourage alcoholics from drinking. In the present study, we sought to determine the effect of acetaldehyde on the electrophysiological properties of dopamine (DA)-containing neurons in the ventro tegmental area (VTA) of rats in vivo. Intravenous (i.v.) administration of acetaldehyde (5-40 mg/kg) readily and dose-dependently increased the firing rate, spikes/burst, and burst firing of VTA neurons. Ethanol (250-1000 mg/kg/i.v.) administration produced similar increments in electrophysiological parameters. In addition, a second group of rats was pretreated with the alcohol-dehydrogenase inhibitor 4-methyl-pyrazole (90 mg/kg) intraperitoneally (i.p.), and ethanol and acetaldehyde were administered i.v. at the same doses, 48 h later. In this group, ethanol effects were drastically reduced and the firing rate, spikes/burst, and burst firing were not significantly Rulide Suspension altered. In contrast, acetaldehyde fully retained its capacity to stimulate electrophysiological indices. The results indicate that acetaldehyde produces electrophysiological actions on VTA neurons in vivo, similar to those produced by ethanol, and significantly participate in ethanol-induced increment in DA neuronal activity. These results also suggest that acetaldehyde, by increasing DA neuronal activity in the VTA, may significantly contribute to the centrally mediated positive motivational properties of ethanol, which would oppose the well-known peripherally originating aversive properties.

ICAM-1 upregulation by endothelial cells plays a pivotal role in many disease processes, but signalling mechanisms leading to increased expression are poorly understood. In the current study we investigated the regulatory capacity of reactive oxygen intermediates (ROIs) in ICAM-1 activation by stimulating endothelial cells with the pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-1 beta, TNF alpha, IFN gamma, IL-2, and IL-4 prior to antioxidant treatment. ICAM-1 Avelox And Alcohol was expressed constitutively and upregulated on ECV304 by IL1-beta, IL2, and IFN gamma and on SKHEP-1 by IFN gamma, IL1-beta, and TNF alpha. Phenanthroline (PHE) and disulfiram (DIS) showed the greatest ability to inhibit cytokine-stimulated ICAM-1 expression and in a dose-dependent manner. The alpha,alpha-diphenyl-beta-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) conversion assay showed that PHE and DIS had zero ability to scavenge free radicals and thus no known antioxidant activity. However, both are known metal chelators and our findings therefore suggest a unique role for metal ions in the control of cytokine-induced ICAM-1 expression on endothelial cells.

We examined the involvement of cytochrome P-450 in the oxidation of diethyldithiocarbamate (DTC) to disulfiram (DS) by liver microsomes in the presence of NADPH. DS difference spectra of liver microsomes showed Vardenafil Generic Levitra a peak and trough at about 385 and 418 nm, respectively, which disappeared after further addition of glutathione (GSH). DTC alone had little effect on the microsomal spectrum, however, the addition of NADPH gradually produced a spectral change having a trough at 416-417 nm, which waned upon further addition of GSH. Microsomal DS production was increased by phenobarbital pretreatment and decreased by carbon tetrachloride pretreatment, depending on the activity of the cytochrome P-450-monooxygenase system. With microsomes peroxidized by cumene hydroperoxide, the extent of NADPH-dependent DS production lowered in proportion to the decrease in cytochrome P-450. Inhibitors of cytochrome P-450 such as SKF-525A, metyrapone and n-octylamine dose-dependently inhibited the DS production. Sodium azide, an inhibitor of catalase, increased the DS production, whereas addition of exogenous catalase only slightly suppressed it. It is concluded that oxidation of DTC to DS by liver microsomes largely proceeds via the cytochrome P-450-containing monooxygenase system and partly by hydrogen peroxide generated during NADPH oxidation.

In the last years, numerous studies have been performed on neurobiological mechanisms in alcohol craving. Changes in the hypothalamic cortisol pathway and the leptin metabolism, which is also associated with pharmacological interventions, have been of special interest. With acamprosate and naltrexone two substances exist for pharmacotherapy, but recent results about the efficacy are controversial. The clinical profit of disulfiram has been shown, at least in a subgroup of patients. Besides, there are several promising Lopid 25 Mg candidate substances. Current investigations focus on a differentiated pharmacotherapy of alcohol dependence, including psychological and genetic factors.

Forty male Wistar rats were used. Three groups of 10 rats each received metronidazole, disulfiram, or both for 5 days, and a fourth group of 10 rats served as controls and Evista Pill did not receive any premedication. Faecal samples were taken for the ALDH (aldehyde dehydrogenase) determination before the injection of ethanol, after which all rats received ethanol (1.5 g/kg) 2 h prior to taking samples from blood, liver, colonic mucosa and colonic contents.

Acetaldehyde is one of the intermediate products of ethanolic fermentation, which can be reduced to ethanol by alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH). Alternatively, acetaldehyde can be oxidized to acetate by aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) and subsequently converted to acetyl-CoA by acetyl-CoA synthetase (ACS). To study the expression of ALDHs in plants we isolated and characterized a cDNA coding for a putative mitochondrial ALDH (TobAldh2A) in Nicotiana tabacum. TobALDH2A shows 54-60% identity at the amino acid level with other ALDHs and shows 76% identity with maize Rf2, a gene involved in restoration of male fertility in cms-T maize. TobAldh2A transcripts and protein were present at high levels in the Betnovate Ointment Storage male and female reproductive tissues. Expression in vegetative tissues was much lower and no induction by anaerobic incubation was observed. This suggests that TobALDH expression is not part of the anaerobic response, but may have another function. The use of specific inhibitors of ALDH and the pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) complex indicates that ALDH activity is important for pollen tube growth, and thus may have a function in biosynthesis or energy production.

The effects of various cephem antibiotics and related compounds on ethanol metabolism were studied in association with their chemical structures. In rats, cefoperazone, cefbuperazone, cefamandole, latamoxef, cefmetazole, cefotetan, cefmenoxime and cefminox which have the [(1-methyl-1H-tetrazol-5-yl) thio] methyl group at position 3 of the cephem ring caused a significant increase in the blood acetaldehyde concentration. In the last three compounds, disulfiram-like activity was less potent than that evaluated in the preceding compounds. Cefazolin and ceftezole having a 1H-tetrazol group at position 7 also showed a disulfiram-like activity. A single administration of 1H-tetrazol also increased the blood acetaldehyde concentration. Both blood ethanol and acetaldehyde values were increased significantly on administration of these drugs. In beagle dogs, cefoperazone induced a less remarkable but much more sustained increase in the blood acetaldehyde. These results indicate that the 1H-tetrazol group, as well as the [(1-methyl-1H-tetrazol-5-yl) thio] methyl group, is responsible for inducing a disulfiram-like action and that there is a difference in the potency of the disulfiram-like activity among the drugs having a [(1-methyl-1H-tetrazol-5-yl)thio] methyl group at position 3 of the cephem ring in relation to those in which the side chain is substituted at position 7.

Patients that received pharmacotherapy were more likely to use alcohol during the index stay and at the 1-year follow-up. Moreover, this patient group more readily utilized treatment services during a 2-year period prior to and a 1-year period following index stay than patients who were not given pharmacotherapy. Nevertheless, when pharmacotherapy was prescribed before first post-treatment alcohol use, it was associated with delay of alcohol use, fewer relapses, and a reduced need for inpatient treatment. In many cases, however, medication was not prescribed until alcohol use and relapse had occurred. The length of time to first alcohol use was longer, and the cumulative abstinence rate higher, for disulfiram than for acamprosate, the latter being generally prescribed for more severely alcohol-dependent patients.
