Experiments on rats were made to study the effect of alcohol and teturam on the function of spermatozoa and spermatogenesis of males and their progeny. The male-mediated damaging action of alcohol on the gonads of the progeny was ascertained. That might be one of the causes of the maldevelopment in subsequent generations of the progeny. Teturam was demonstrated to have an insignificant gonadotropic action and not to potentiate an adverse alcohol action on the male gonads.

1. The ability of alpha-methyl amino-acids and their corresponding amines to restore the sympathomimetic actions of tyramine, and the uptake of the amino-acids and the amines, were studied in isolated tissue preparations obtained from reserpine pretreated animals.2. Tyramine relaxed isolated rat ileum preparations from non-reserpinized rats but not from reserpine treated animals. alpha-Methyldopa, alpha-methylnoradrenaline and lower concentrations of metaraminol restored the responses of reserpinized preparations. alpha-Methyldopamine, alpha-methyl-m-tyrosine, alpha-methyl-p-tyrosine and higher concentrations of metaraminol did not do so. The restoring effect of alpha-methyldopa was blocked by disulphiram. alpha-Methyl-p-tyrosine or alpha-methyl-m-tyrosine blocked the restoring action of alpha-methyldopa but not of alpha-methylnoradrenaline. Cocaine blocked the restoration of responses to tyramine by alpha-methylnoradrenaline but not by alpha-methyldopa. alpha-Methyldopa and alpha-methylnoradrenaline failed to restore responses to tyramine in the presence of sodium-free Tyrode solution.3. Tyramine increased the perfusion pressure in isolated rabbit ear preparations obtained from non-reserpinized animals but was very much less active in preparations obtained from reserpine treated animals. alpha-Methyldopa, alpha-methyl-m-tyrosine, alpha-methylnoradrenaline, alpha-methyl-p-tyrosine and metaraminol restored the effects of tyramine. alpha-Methyldopamine did not do so. The restoring effect of alpha-methyldopa and alpha-methyl-m-tyrosine was blocked by disulfiram. alpha-Methyl-p-tyrosine blocked the restoring effect of alpha-methyl-m-tyrosine.4. Tyramine produced positive inotropic effects in isolated rabbit heart preparations. This was either reduced or absent in preparations obtained from reserpine pretreated animals. alpha-Methyldopa, alpha-methylnoradrenaline, alpha-methyl-m-tyrosine and metaraminol restored the responses to tyramine. alpha-Methyldopamine and alpha-methyl-p-tyrosine did not do so.

Adherence to treatment decreased steadily with time (85.4% at 4 weeks, 36.6% at 16 weeks). Participants showed significant increases in percent abstinent days during treatment and at 24 weeks follow-up. Large reductions in anxiety, depression, and craving were observed during treatment, and improvement remained significant at 24 weeks. Duration of adherence with disulfiram strongly predicted abstinence at 16 weeks. There was no evidence of misuse of lorazepam or dose escalation during the study.

We studied the omega-oxidation of docosanoic acid (C22:0) in rat liver microsomes. C22:0 and 22-hydroxy-docosanoic acid (omega-hydroxy-C22:0) were used as substrates, and the reaction products were analyzed by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. In the presence of NADPH, omega-oxidation of C22:0 produced not only the hydroxylated product, omega-hydroxy-C22:0, but also the dicarboxylic acid of C22:0, docosanedioic acid (C22:0-DCA). When rat liver microsomes were incubated with omega-hydroxy-C22:0 in the presence of either NAD+ or NADPH, C22:0-DCA was formed readily. Formation of C22:0-DCA from either C22:0 or omega-hydroxy-C22:0 with NADPH as cofactor was inhibited strongly by miconazole and disulfiram, whereas no inhibition was found with NAD+ as cofactor. Furthermore, omega-oxidation of C22:0 was reduced significantly when molecular oxygen was depleted. The high sensitivity toward the more specific cytochrome P450 inhibitors ketoconazole and 17-octadecynoic acid suggests that hydroxylation of C22:0 and omega-hydroxy-C22:0 may be catalyzed by one or more cytochrome P450 hydroxylases belonging to the CYP4A and/or CYP4F subfamily. This study demonstrates that C22:0 is a substrate for the omega-oxidation system in rat liver microsomes and that the product of the first hydroxylation step, omega-hydroxy-C22:0, may undergo further oxidation via two distinct pathways driven by NAD+ or NADPH.

Despite growing interest in closing the "research to practice gap", there are few data on the availability of medications in American substance abuse treatment settings. Recent research suggests that organizational characteristics may be associated with medication availability. It is unclear if the availability of medications can be conceptualized in terms of "technology clusters", where the availability of a medication is positively associated with the likelihood that other medications are also offered. Using data from 403 privately funded and 363 publicly funded specialty substance abuse treatment centers in the US, this research models the availability of agonist medications, naltrexone, disulfiram, and SSRIs. Bivariate logistic regression models indicated considerable variation in adoption across publicly funded non-profit, government-owned, privately funded non-profit, and for-profit treatment centers. Some of these differences were attenuated by organizational characteristics, such as accreditation, the presence of staff physicians, and the availability of detoxification services. There was some evidence that naltrexone, disulfiram, and SSRIs represent a group of less intensely regulated medications that is distinct from more intensely regulated medications. These types of medications were associated with somewhat different correlates. Future research should continue to investigate the similarities and differences in the predictors of medication availability across national contexts.

The QA process is recommended to anyone seeking to upgrade patient care delivery. It clarifies theories and gives substance to progressive ideas being considered for adoption. Certainly it tends to prevent premature and ill-conceived presentations. When an action is instituted, QA provides the framework that can be used to facilitate the change. As an afterthought, but as a welcome benefit, QA can foster teamwork and camaraderie among staff who assist in problem solving or bringing an idea to fruition.

Previous studies suggested that a relative dopamine (DA) deficiency may explain the altered LH secretory dynamics that occur in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCO). These studies included findings of decreased urinary excretion of homovanillic acid (HVA), a metabolite of DA, and increased urinary excretion of 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglycol (MHPG), the major brain metabolite of norepinephrine. To further explore the role of DA in these patients, disulfiram (250 mg) was administered daily for 2 weeks to alter the conversion of DA to norepinephrine and to increase both peripheral and central DA in patients with PCO and in normal women. LH pulse frequency and amplitude and the serum LH response to GnRH were assessed before and during disulfiram administration. A dopaminergic effect during disulfiram administration was evidenced by a decrease in serum PRL in the PCO patients and an increase in urinary HVA excretion and a decrease in the ratio of 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglycol to HVA in urine in both groups (all P less than 0.05). This increase in DA did not significantly alter the serum estrogen level, the mean serum LH level, LH pulse amplitude, or serum LH responses to GnRH in either the PCO patients or the normal women. These data suggest that increasing endogenous DA does not correct the inappropriate gonadotropin secretion characteristic of PCO and places further doubt on the importance of DA in explaining the altered LH secretory dynamics in these patients.

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.

The New England Veterans Integrated Service Network outpatient pharmacy files between January 1, 1998, and June 30, 2001, were analyzed; only patients with prescriptions on or after March 1, 1998, were included. Measurements for each patient included data on new and refilled prescriptions of disulfiram, naltrexone, and control medications. Prescription survival curves with right censoring were constructed. Distinct treatment episodes were defined by having six or more months between the end date of a prior prescription and the start date of a new prescription.

Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) is the most common type of lung cancer in both men and women. A recent phase IIb study demonstrated that disulfiram (DSF) in combination with cisplatin and vinorelbine was well tolerated and prolonged the survival of patients with newly diagnosed NSCLC. However, DSF is rapidly (4min) metabolised in the bloodstream and it is this issue which is limiting its anticancer application in the clinic. We have recently demonstrated that a low dose of DSF-loaded poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) nanoparticles supplemented with oral Cu inhibited tumour growth and reduced metastasis in a xenograft mouse lung cancer model. Here we demonstrate the influence of PLGA polymer, stabilizer loading and molecular weight as well as sonication time on the characteristics, including DSF release and the cytotoxicity of 10% w/w DSF-loaded PLGA nanoparticles. The paper demonstrates that the choice of PLGA as no significance on the characteristics of the nanoparticles apart from their DSF release, which is due to the differing degradation rates of the polymers. However, increasing the loading and molecular weight of the stabilizer as well as the sonication time reduced the size of the nanoparticles, reduced their ability to protect the DSF from reacting with Cu and degrading in serum, while increasing their DSF release rate and cytotoxicity. Additionally, increasing the sonication time resulted in the premature degradation of the PLGA, which increased the permeability of the nanoparticles further decreasing their ability to protect DSF from reacting with Cu and degrading in serum, while increasing their DSF release rate and cytotoxicity.

The central concept was that of abstinence being a psychosocial construction, with the taking of disulfiram, being a physical manifestation of the decision not to drink. The main subthemes included the importance of participants believing in the potential for disulfiram producing a negative reaction, the increased autonomy achieved by disulfiram removing the need to ruminate on drinking decisions, and the importance of external structure, routine, and social contact with others to support ongoing engagement with disulfiram therapy.

After traumatic injury to the central nervous system (CNS), various cytokines orchestrate the physiological responses of injured neurons and glial cells. The control of these intercellular signals is of major interest from a medical point of view. Since the transcriptional activator retinoic acid (RA) is known to regulate gene expression of cytokines in various cell culture systems we investigated the role of RA signaling in glial cells. The transcriptional activity of RA-induced genes is largely determined by the distribution of RA, which in turn depends on the local oxidation of retinaldehyde (RAL). This is synthesized from retinol or internalized as a component of vitamin A. Using high-pressure liquid chromatography and an RA-sensitive reporter cell line, we showed that OLN-93 cells, which serve as a model system for CNS oligodendrocytes, convert all-trans-RAL to the biologically active form all-trans-RA, but neither oxidize 9-cis-RAL nor isomerize RA enzymatically. The oligodendrocyte cell line expresses a cytosolic aldehyde dehydrogenase with an apparent molecular weight of 54-57 kDa and pI of 5.3-5.7. As indicated by a zymography bioassay, this enzyme is responsible for RA synthesis. The reaction requires NAD+ as cosubstrate and can be inhibited by disulfiram and citral. No other RA-producing enzyme activities were detected. These findings are in accordance with a putative role for retinoid signaling in neuroglial interactions in the CNS.

Coprine, the disulfiram-like constituent of the mushroom Coprinus atramentarius was found to inhibit the low-Km dehydrogenase in rat liver and to increase the acetaldehyde level in blood during ethanol metabolism in vivo. Coprine did not inhibit the low-Km enzyme in vitro, but the hydrolytic product of coprine, 1-aminocyclo-propanol, was a potent inhibitor both in vitro and in vivo. A rapid onset of inhibition was observed after administration of coprine and the inhibition was long-lasting. It is suggested that 1-aminocyclopropanol is responsible for the inhibition caused by coprine in vivo.

The physiological effects of disulfiram, in particular its adverse reaction when combined with alcohol, explains only part of its effect on problem drinking behaviour. The act of taking a disulfiram pill is also partly symbolic of making an absolute decision not to drink for a short period, allowing people with alcohol use disorder to explore other options for managing life without alcohol. Drug trials involving disulfiram need to treat it not simply as pharmaceutical but as part of a complex psychosocial intervention conducted within a supportive social context.

Alcohol dependence is a widespread, chronic disorder with enormous health consequences. Psychological and behavioral therapies have been the mainstay of treatment and are demonstrated to be effective, but they do not lead to reduced drinking or abstinence in all patients. Advances in neurobiology have led to the identification of drug targets and the development of novel drugs to treat alcohol dependence, and many patients will benefit from the addition of pharmacotherapy to their treatment regimen. Pharmacologic treatment options for use in conjunction with psychotherapy include the aversion-based therapy disulfiram, the opioid receptor antagonist naltrexone, and acamprosate, which is thought to act by normalizing the glutamate and gamma-aminobutyric acid neurotransmitter systems. The effectiveness of pharmacotherapies depends on adherence, which is often poor in alcohol-dependent patients. Recently, a monthly, extended-release formulation of naltrexone has been approved for alcohol dependence, which promises to minimize nonadherence, a problematic factor in the management of alcohol dependence.

The threat of a disulfiram-ethanol reaction appears to affect cue reactivity physiologically rather than subjectively. While the data does not show changes in subjective ratings, it is possible that there are alternative beneficial effects arising from other cognitive processes that are not captivated by self-reported craving scales, reflected by decreases in negative affect and blood pressure. From this perspective, disulfiram might be recast to be more acceptable to patients.

The objective of this study was to determine whether the thiol drug, diethyldithiocarbamate (DEDC) and its two metabolites, disulfiram (DS) and carbon disulfide (CS2) could be used as inhibitors of cytochrome P-450IIE1 to protect hepatocytes from cytotoxic xenobiotics. (1) Hepatocytes isolated from rats following pyrazole administration to induce cytochrome P-450IIE1 were much more susceptible to carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) and dimethylnitrosamine (DMN) than hepatocytes from untreated rats. Microsomes isolated from P-450IIE1-induced liver were also much more effective at catalysing a NADPH-dependent metabolism of CCl4 and DMN. The activities of aniline hydroxylase and p-nitroanisole-O-demethylase increased whereas ethoxyresorufin-O-dealkylase activity was much less induced and pentoxyresorufin-O-dealkylase activity was decreased. The P-450IIE1 antibody markedly inhibited the NADPH-dependent metabolism of these compounds indicating that IIE1 is a major catalyst of the microsomal metabolism of CCl4 and DMN. (2) Hepatocytes isolated from rats treated with DEDC or its metabolites, DS and CS2, on the other hand, were resistant to CCl4 and DMN. Microsomes isolated from the liver of animals treated with DEDC or DS or CS2 were also much less effective at catalysing the NADPH-dependent metabolism of the above compounds. DEDC markedly decreased the activities of aniline hydroxylase, p-nitroanisole-O-demethylase and pentoxyresorufin-O-dealkylase but had no effect on ethoxyresorufin-O-dealkylase activity. (3) Hepatocytes isolated from pyrazole-treated rats were also more susceptible to bromobenzene (BB) and naphthalene-induced cytotoxicity than hepatocytes from untreated rats. Furthermore, DEDC or CS2 administration beforehand significantly protected hepatocytes against both xenobiotics. (4) By contrast, hepatocytes isolated from P-450IIE1 induced rats were not more susceptible to lactonitrile or cyclophosphamide. Instead, cyclophosphamide was activated by phenobarbital-induced P-450 isozymes whereas lactonitrile was activated by alcohol dehydrogenase. Hepatocytes isolated from DEDC-treated rats were also resistant to cyclophosphamide but not lactonitrile. (5) The above results suggest that P-450IIE1 catalyses the cytotoxic activation of CCl4, DMN, BB and naphthalene but not of lactonitrile or cyclophosphamide. Furthermore, the administration of DEDC and its metabolites, disulfiram or CS2, inactivates P-450IIE1 so that the hepatocytes become resistant to these hepatotoxins.

The article discusses therapeutic potential of placebo and nocebo effects in treatment of substance use disorders. The authors review the background of the issue, describe neurobiological and psychological mechanisms of placebo effects and demonstrate their impact on psychotherapy of patients with substance use disorders. Attention is drawn to the clinical and ethical issues of practical use of placebo effects including that in terms of placebo-therapy, indirect suggestion psychotherapy, motivational interventions and cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy, psychotherapy with the use of disulfiram, psychopharmacotherapy with opioid antagonists. The authors conclude that the ethical use of placebo-effects in treatment of substance use disorders may improve its overall efficiency.

This work was carried out in order to evaluate the in vitro and in vivo toxicity of 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetaldehyde (DOPAL). This aldehyde is formed from dopamine (DA) by monoamine oxidases (MAO) and is mainly oxidised to 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid by brain aldehyde dehydrogenases (ALDH), or eventually reduced to 3,4-dihydroxyphenylethanol by aldose/aldehyde reductases. In vitro, catecholaminergic SH-SY5Y cells were incubated with DA and disulfiram (DSF), an irreversible inhibitor of ALDH. As evidenced by MTT assays, a 24-h treatment with 10(-4) M DA and/or 10(-6) M DSF followed by a 24-h incubation in a drug-free medium evidenced that the toxicity of each of these drugs was potentiated by the second drug. HPLC measurements demonstrated that this drug association induced an early DOPAL production that could result in a delayed cell toxicity. For in vivo studies, male Sprague-Dawley rats were treated with L-DOPA-benserazide, which increases the production of DOPAL by MAO, and DSF. An acute injection of DSF (100mg/kg i.p.) and L-DOPA/benserazide (100mg/kg+25mg/kg, 24h later) significantly increased the DOPAL striatal level. However, a 30-day treatment with DSF (100mg/kg i.p., once every two days) and L-DOPA/benserazide (100mg/kg+25mg/kg, twice a day) did not affect both indexes used to assess the integrity of the nigro-striatal dopaminergic terminals (i.e. the striatal content in DA and the binding to the vesicular monoamine transporter on striatal membranes). These results do not support the hypothesis of a DOPAL toxicity and argue against the toxicity of L-DOPA therapy.

A 49 year old female was started on disulfiram. Six weeks later she was given naproxen because of epicondylitis. After 5 days' treatment with naproxen she complained of nausea, anorexia and jaundice. At admission, bilirubin was 452 mumol/l, aspartate aminotransferase (ASAT) 1925 U/I, alanine aminotransferase (ALAT) 2815 U/I and prothrombin time measured as Normotest was 27%. The patient developed a fulminant hepatitis and died in hepatic coma almost four weeks after the introduction of naproxen. Postmortem examination disclosed a small liver (1,100 g) and histological examination showed massive necrosis and collapse of the lobules. The naproxen was the most probable cause of death, but it is impossible to exclude disulfiram as causative agent.

Both inpatient and outpatient treatment centers that focus solely on psychosocial therapies for the treatment of alcohol dependence have high relapse rates. Thus, extensive research has focused on the development of pharmacologic moieties to attenuate the craving for alcohol after acute alcohol detoxification. Three drug therapies are currently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for this purpose: disulfiram, naltrexone, and acamprosate. The latter was approved by the FDA in 2004.

Acute intentional overdoses of disulfiram (app. 30 g) is reported in 15-years-old boy. The neurological disturbances as nystagmus, coma, seizures and than impairment of memory and perception were dominated in the clinical picture. During MRI examination the areas of different signal from corpus callosum were detected which can be referred to focus of demyelinisation. The patient recovered and was discharged from the hospital after 30 days. Neuropsychological examinations have suggested dysfunction of CNS. The control MRI examination 90 days later, did not reveal any pathological changes in the brain.

We reviewed the laboratory data of 408 alcoholics admitted for a 3 month course of alcohol detoxification and rehabilitation. Patients tested negative for hepatitis virus markers and were diagnosed as not having cirrhosis. Among the subjects, 222 patients received cyanamide treatment (a daily dose of 70 mg) without a history of disulfiram treatment, and 186 received disulfiram (a daily dose of 200 mg) without a history of cyanamide treatment. Serum aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) levels obtained at 0, 4, 8, and 12 weeks of administration of each aversive drug were compared between the two alcoholic groups.

It is well know that if an individual maintained on disulfiram (Antabuse) ingests alcohol, excess acetaldehyde is formed, resulting in a toxic reaction. In addition to this toxic interaction with alcohol (the basis of its use as a deterrent), there are both behavioral and biochemical observations to suggest that disulfiram alone has a direct effect on the CNS. The possibility that some of disulfiram's effects are related to alterations in biogenic amine metabolism led to the present study of cerebrospinal fluid amine metabolites in a group of male alcoholics. In this group, disulfiram treatment was associated with a significant reduction in homovanillic acid, the major metabolite of dopamine, while no change was noted in 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid, the major metabolite of serotonin. Prior to disulfiram, patients with withdrawal symptoms had significantly lower homovanillic acid than those without such symptoms.

Nickel allergy can result in both cutaneous and systemic manifestations, and can range from mild to severe symptoms. A severe form of this allergy is the Systemic nickel allergy syndrome, clinically characterized by cutaneous manifestions (contact dermatitis, pompholyx, hand dermatitis dyshydrosis, urticaria) with chronic course and systemic symptoms (headache, asthenia, itching, and gastrointestinal disorders related to histopathological alterations of gastrointestinal mucosa, borderline with celiac disease). This review aims to briefly update the reader on past and current therapies for nickel contact allergy.

We propose that CYP2E1 activation occurs possibly due to OH* and contributes to H2O2-mediated LLC-PK1 cell necrosis by acting as a source of iron and perpetuating the generation of OH* via the Fenton reaction. Inhibition of CYP2E1 may be a novel approach for the prevention of tubular injury caused by oxidative stress.

This study has demonstrated that cutaneous ADH and ALDH activities, located within defined subcellular compartments, play important roles in the activation and detoxification of CAlc and CAld in skin. Such findings are important to the development of computational hazard prediction tools for sensitisation (e.g. the DEREK program) and also to dermatologists in understanding observed interindividual differences, cross-reactivities or co-sensitisation to different cinnamic compounds in the clinic.

The bacteriocolonic pathway for ethanol oxidation leads to high intracolonic levels of carcinogenic acetaldehyde. The respective roles of colonic mucosal cells and gut flora in the regulation of intracolonic acetaldehyde concentration are not known. Disulfiram inhibits hepatic acetaldehyde oxidation and may have an effect on colonic mucosal cells. On the other hand, metronidazole treatment leads to overgrowth of acetaldehyde-producing aerobic flora in the large intestine. The aim of this study was to characterize by means of disulfiram and metronidazole the contribution of colonic mucosal cells and intracolonic microbes to the regulation of intracolonic acetaldehyde concentration during ethanol oxidation in rats.

Substance use disorder is the most common psychiatric comorbidity in patients with schizophrenia, revealing prevalence rates of up to 65%. Recommendations of antipsychotic pharmacotherapy in schizophrenia are based on studies excluding patients with this double diagnosis. In this systematic review the available pharmacological studies in this subgroup of patients are summarised and discussed with regard to evidence-based medicine. Most available studies concern small sample sizes, and the level of evidence in those studies was low. Data suggest efficacy for second-generation antipsychotics (SGAs) (aripiprazole, clozapine, olanzapine, quetiapine, and risperidone) superior to orally administered conventional antipsychotics. Treatment with SGAs revealed superior improvement of distinct psychopathological symptoms, similarly to those studies excluding patients with comorbid substance abuse. In some studies reduced craving and increased reduction of substance abuse could be demonstrated. Tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs) added to antipsychotic maintenance therapy showed efficacy in reducing substance abuse and craving, whereas studies with other antidepressive agents (e.g. selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) are lacking. Administration of the anti-craving agents naltrexone and disulfiram led to a decrease of drug intake in a few studies. Unfortunately no studies are available using acamprosate in patients with schizophrenia and comorbid alcoholism. In conclusion the preferential use of SGAs in patients with schizophrenia and comorbid substance use disorder is suggested, and the early initiation of concomitant treatment with TCAs (depending on current psychopathological status) and anti-craving agents has to be considered.

The biochemical and pharmacological effects of disulfiram implantation were studied in rats. Sterile disulfiram pellets (1000 mg/kg) were implanted subcutaneously. Groups of 5 rats were killed after 3, 7, 14, 28 and 56 days. The release of disulfiram during the first week corresponded to a daily dose of 12--16 mg/kg and during the following period buy antabuse online to 5--8 mg/kg. The activity of the low-Km aldehyde dehydrogenase in liver and brain, the carboxylesterase activity in liver and the dopamine-beta-hydroxylase activity in heart were significantly decreased by approximately 45, 35, 20 and 35% respectively at all periods tested. The rate of ethanol elimination, the activity of monoamine oxidase in the brain, and the content of cytochrome P-450 in the liver were unaffected. The level of norepinephrine in the brain was slightly decreased after 14 days. The acetaldehyde level in blood after ethanol injection (1.0 g/kg) was 55--60 microM in the disulfiram group and 25--30 microM in the control group. Ethanol administration caused a slightly decreased blood pressure and increased respiratory rate 14 days after implantation but not after 28 days.

Five hundred and sixty-nine alcoholics were included in a double-blind placebo-controlled randomized multicenter study of the effects of Acamprosate (calcium acetylhomotaurinate (CA), 1.3 g/day) on indicators buy antabuse online of alcoholic relapse after withdrawal. One hundred and eighty-one patients in the CA group versus 175 in the placebo group completed the three-month study. The major efficacy criterion was plasma gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT), as an indicator of recent alcohol ingestion. This analysis was completed by criteria concordance analysis on a number of indicators of alcohol intake. Patients in both groups were similar initially. After 3 months of treatment, the patients in the CA group had significantly lower GGT (1.4 +/- 1.56 versus 2.0 +/- 3.19 times normal, P = 0.016). All significant differences (P less than 0.05) or trends (0.10 greater than P greater than 0.05) were in favor of a superior effect of CA over placebo. The major side-effect of CA was diarrhea (present in 13% of CA patients versus 7% of placebo, P = 0.04). CA proved superior to placebo on the evolution of markers of alcohol ingestion at three months, in this large-scale multicenter study. It could be a new modality in the drug therapy of alcoholism, not involving an antabuse effect, an antidepressant action, or conditioning.

Psychiatrists have gradually developed a list of medications that are effective in the treatment of addictive disorders. Although alcoholism has received the most attention, nicotine, heroin, and cocaine have all been shown to be influenced by heredity. Of course, the immediate goal is the reduction of drug craving and the prevention of relapse to compulsive drug taking. A medication buy antabuse online that can aid in the maintenance of the opiate-free state is naltrexone, a specific opiate antagonist. Naltrexone is also a good example of an anticraving medication used in the treatment of alcoholism. Clinicians currently have two types of medication to aid in the treatment of tobacco use disorder, arguably the most important addiction. Bupropion and nicotine replacement can be given in a coordinated fashion to provide the best available results. At present, no medication is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the indication of cocaine addiction. Recently, however, five different medications, already approved for other purposes, have been found to be effective among cocaine addicts. Despite clinical trials that show benefit, anticraving medications are not well known and are underused by clinicians. Addiction is a heterogeneous condition, with variability in reactivity to the drug of abuse and to the medications available to treat it. Recent developments in pharmacogenetics may result in improved selection of medications based on genotype.

The prevalence of unidentified or untreated unhealthy alcohol use remains high. With the advent of pharmacotherapy and models of counseling appropriate for use in primary care settings as well as in specialty care, clinicians have buy antabuse online new tools to manage the range of alcohol problems across the spectrum of health care settings. By extending treatment to primary care, many people who do not currently receive specialty care may have increased access to treatment. In addition, primary care providers, by virtue of their ongoing relationship with patients, may be able to provide continuing treatment over time. Extending the spectrum of care to hazardous drinkers who may not be alcohol dependent could result in earlier intervention and reduce the consequences of excessive drinking.

The effect of indole-3-acetaldehyde, 5-hydroxyindole-3-acetaldehyde, disulfiram, diethyldithiocarbamate, coprine, and 1-amino-cyclopropanol on tryptophan hydroxylase activity was studied in vitro using high performance liquid chromatography with electro-chemical detection. With the analytical method developed, 5-hydroxytryptophan, serotonin, and 5-hydroxyindole-3-acetic acid could be measured simultaneously. Indole-3-acetaldehyde (12-1200 microM) was found to cause a 6-33% inhibition of the enzyme. Dependent upon the nature of the buy antabuse online sulfhydryl- or reducing-agent (dithiotreitol, glutathione, or ascorbate) present in the incubates, the degree of inhibition by disulfiram varied, probably due to the formation of various mixed disulfides. Also the presence of diethyldithiocarbamate (160-1600 microM) was found to inhibit tryptophan hydroxylase (28-91%), while 5-hydroxyindole-3-acetaldehyde, coprine, or 1-aminocyclopropanol appeared to have no effect on the enzyme activity.

The present review update the relationship between acetaldehyde (ACE) and parkinsonism with a specific focus on the role of P450 system and CYP 2E1 isozyme particularly. We have indicated that ACE is able to enhance the parkinsonism induced in mice by 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine, a neurotoxin able to damage the nigrostriatal dopaminergic pathway. Similarly diethyldithiocarbamate, the main metabolite of disulfiram, a drug widely used to control alcoholism, diallylsulfide (DAS) and phenylisothiocyanate also markedly enhance the toxin-related parkinsonism. All these compounds are substrate/inhibitors of CYP450 2E1 isozyme. The presence of CYP 2E1 has been detected in the dopamine (DA) neurons of rodent Substantia Nigra (SN), but a precise function of the enzyme has not been elucidated yet. By treating CYP 2E1 knockout (KO) mice with the neurotoxin 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine, the SN induced lesion was significantly reduced when compared with the lesion observed in wild-type animals. Several in vivo and in vitro studies led to the conclusion that CYP 2E1 may enhance the 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine toxicity in mice by increasing free radical production inside the dopaminergic neurons. ACE is a good substrate for CYP 2E1 enzyme buy antabuse online as the other substrate-inhibitors and by this way may facilitate the susceptibility of dopaminergic neurons to toxic events. The literature suggests that ethanol and/or disulfiram may be responsible for toxic parkinsonism in human and it indicates that basal ganglia are the major targets of disulfiram toxicity. A very recent study reports that there are a decreased methylation of the CYP 2E1 gene and increased expression of CYP 2E1 mRNA in Parkinson's disease (PD) patient brains. This study suggests that epigenetic variants of this cytochrome contribute to the susceptibility, thus confirming multiples lines of evidence which indicate a link between environmental toxins and PD.

Complete QTc-interval data in 23 MT and 18 UT participants were buy antabuse online analyzed. QTc interval tended to be higher in MT participants relative to UT participants, regardless of disulfiram dose and time point, but disulfiram did not differentially alter QTc interval. QTc interval was, however, significantly greater in participants with recent cocaine use than in those with no recent use.

The present experiment examined effects of disulfiram (Antabuse buy antabuse online ) administration on behavioral measures of nociception (hot plate and tail flick), peripheral muscular performance (grip strength), motivated performance, balance, and coordination (rotorod) in 24 male Sprague-Dawley rats during and 2 wk after an eight-day administration of disulfiram. In addition, peptidylglycine 5(-hydroxylating monooxygenase (PHM) activity in several tissues and levels of alpha-amidated alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) in the neurointermediate lobe of the pituitary were assayed to evaluate biochemical effects of disulfiram. These particular assays were included because it has been reported that disulfiram affects alpha-amidated peptides via alteration of PHM activity. Decrements in all behavioral measures, except tail flick, occurred after one week of disulfiram administration. Decrements in grip strength continued for the 2 wk after cessation of disulfiram. Dose-related reductions in changes in PHM activity and levels of alpha-MSH were found 2 wk after cessation of disulfiram administration. The time course of the results suggest that changes in PHM activity may underlie decrements in grip strength. The present experiment provides a paradigm for further investigations of effects of alpha-amidated peptides on behavior.

The rat eye possesses cytoplasmic aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) activity. The enzyme is present in whole eye, in ocular fluids and is distributed in specific ocular regions. The specific activity of cornea ALDH was the highest among 6 regions studied. The ciliary body and iris combined displayed second largest activity followed by even distribution of ALDH in the retina, the sclera and the surrounding connective tissue. The cloroid and lens did not show measurable ALDH activity. The kinetics property of cornea-ALDH indicate high Vmax. In vitro addition of equal protein concentration of individual buy antabuse online ocular regional preparations to the cornea decreased specific activity of cornea-ALDH suggesting of protein interaction and/or substrate competition phenomenon. Short-term oral administration of Vitamin A resulted in statistically insignificant increase of whole ocular tissue ALDH from controls as contrasted with inhibition of ALDH in the ocular fluid by similar short-term oral administration of disulfiram.

The in vitro effects of some cholinergics and an anticholinergic agent on hepatic liver alcohol and aldehyde-dehydrogenase were investigated. Physostigmine was the only cholinomimetic agent which significantly inhibited hepatic buy antabuse online mitochondrial aldehyde-dehydrogenase without concomitant changes in specific activity of alcohol dehydrogenase. This inhibitory action of physostigmine is found to be competitive and is confined to the enzyme with the low Km value which is also known to be inhibited by disulfiram. Kinetic studies were made to determine changes in the apparent Km value of aldehyde dehydrogenase by physostigmine. Additional experiments were performed to evaluate the Ki50 of physostigmine. The results are discussed in relevance to possible physostigmine-ethanol interaction and the complication of physostigmine in post-operative recovery procedures in individuals with alcohol intoxication and/or in alcoholic patients.

Bacterial lignin degradation could be used to generate aromatic chemicals from the renewable resource lignin, provided that the breakdown pathways can be manipulated. In this study, selective inhibitors of enzymatic steps in bacterial degradation pathways were developed and tested for their effects upon lignin degradation. Screening of a collection of hydroxamic acid metallo-oxygenase inhibitors against two catechol dioxygenase enzymes, protocatechuate 3,4-dioxygenase (3,4-PCD) and 2,3-dihydroxyphenylpropionate 1,2-dioxygenase (MhpB), resulted in the identification of selective inhibitors D13 for 3,4-PCD (IC50 15μM) and D3 for MhpB (IC50 110μM). Application of D13 to Rhodococcus jostii RHA1 in minimal media containing ferulic acid led to the appearance of metabolic precursor protocatechuic acid at low concentration. Application of 1mM disulfiram, an inhibitor of mammalian aldehyde dehydrogenase, to R. jostii RHA1, gave Cialis 5mg Reviews rise to 4-carboxymuconolactone on the β-ketoadipate pathway, whereas in Pseudomonas fluorescens Pf-5 disulfiram treatment gave rise to a metabolite found to be glycine betaine aldehyde.

The monoamine oxidase inhibitor L-deprenyl [(-)-deprenyl, selegiline] is an effective therapeutic agent for improving early symptoms of idiopathic Parkinson's disease. It appears to exert this action independently of its inhibition of monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B) and some of its metabolites are thought to contribute. Cytochrome P450 (CYP) activities are known to give rise to L-deprenyl metabolites that may affect the dopaminergic system. In order to clarify the interactions of L-deprenyl with these enzymes, C57BL mice were treated with L-deprenyl, ethanol, phenobarbital or beta-naphthoflavone Albenza Tab 200mg to induce different CYP isozymes. After preincubation of L-deprenyl with liver microsomes from control or treated mice, the metabolites were analysed by a GLC method. L-deprenyl (10 mg/kg i.p. for 3 days) caused a significant decrease in total CYP levels (0.315+/-0.019, L-deprenyl; 0.786+/-0.124, control, nmol/mg protein) and CYP2E1-associated p-nitrophenol hydroxylase activity (0.92+/-0.04 vs. 1.17+/-0.06 nmol/min/mg). Both phenobarbital and ethanol increased the N-depropynylation activity towards L-deprenyl that leads to the formation of methamphetamine (4. 11+/-0.64, phenobarbital; 4.77+/-1.15, ethanol; 1.77+/-0.34, control, nmol/min/mg). Ethanol alone increased the N-demethylation rate of L-deprenyl, that results in formation of nordeprenyl (3.99+/-0.68, ethanol; 1.41+/-0.31, control, nmol/min/mg). Moreover, the N-dealkylation pathways of deprenyl are inhibited by 4-methylpyrazole and disulfiram, two CYP2E1 inhibitors. None of the other treatments modified L-deprenyl metabolism. These findings indicate that mainly CYP2E1 and to a lesser extent CYP2B isozymes are involved in L-deprenyl metabolism. They also suggest that, by reducing CYP content, L-deprenyl treatment may impair the metabolic disposition of other drugs given in combination regimens.

The review included 19 RCTs or CCTs presented in 26 articles. In comparison to placebo, two of four short-term primary outcomes were significantly in favour of NTX. Those were number of patients who return to drinking (61% in NTX group vs 69% in placebo group) [RR (95% CI) = 0.88 (0.80 to 0.98), NNT = 14] and percentage or number of drinking days [WMD (95% CI) = -4.52 (-5.29 to -3.75)]. However, the short-term discontinuation rates were high and not different between NTX and placebo groups [RR (95% CI) = 0.96 (0.81 to 1.13)]. No medium-term outcomes of NTX and placebo groups showed any significant difference after the completion of NTX treatment for three to six months. However, those who were regularly treated with NTX treatment in Glucophage Xr Dosage both short and medium terms consumed smaller amounts of alcohol than placebo-treated patients. Because of the small sample sizes, there were few significant differences for other comparisons.

The effect of disulfiram ("Anticol") treatment lasting from 7 to 12 months of 57 alcohol dependent out-patients was evaluated. The satisfactory results (i.e. patients remained abstinent and took the medication regularly) were observed in Depakote Overdose Treatment 30 patients. Those patients did not differ from others in regard to age, length of alcohol abuse, the severity of dependence, the genetic encumbrance , the features of alexithymia , and the membership of AA-clubs. The percentage of patients with positive treatment results was significantly higher among subjects with high self-motivation to treatment, among married subjects, and among those professionally active. The findings are similar to the recent American results where about a half of alcoholics showed positive effects of disulfiram treatment, especially those with high motivation to the treatment and with the stabile social position.

In freshly prepared and cryopreserved liver slices, phenylacetic acid was the main metabolite of 2-phenylethalamine. In freshly prepared liver slices, phenylacetic acid was completely inhibited by disulfiram (inhibitor of aldehyde dehydrogenase), whereas isovanillin (inhibitor of aldehyde oxidase) inhibited acid formation to a lesser extent and allopurinol (inhibitor of xanthine oxidase) had no effect. In cryopreserved liver slices, isovanillin inhibited phenylacetic acid by Lamictal Bipolar Medicine 85%, whereas disulfiram inhibited acid formation to a lesser extent and allopurinol had no effect.

Pancreatic carcinoma is currently considered as a rapidly progressive and fatal disease, and is typically diagnosed late in its natural course. It is characterized by a poor diagnosis and lack of response to conventional therapy. Recent studies have suggested that disulfiram (DSF), a member of the dithiocarbamate family, may have antitumor activity. This study aimed to evaluate the in vitro effect of DSF on apoptosis in human pancreatic cancerous cell line (PANC-1). PANC-1 cells were cultured and treated with DSF at doses of 5, 10, 13 μM Flagyl 750 Mg for 24 h and apoptosis was measured. Methylation specific PCR (MS-PCR) and real-time quantitative PCR were carried out to detect the methylation pattern and to estimate the mRNA expression levels of RASSF1A, p21 and Bax. MS-PCR analysis demonstrated that no unmethylated band was apeared in PANC-1 cell line after DSF treatments. The real-time quantitative PCR results showed no significant mRNA expression for RASSF1A (p>0.05); whereas p21 and Bax expression were significantly (p<0.01) enhanced after treatment with DSF. The results of the current study indicated that DSF can induce appoptosis in PANC-1 through p21 and Bax pathway but not through RASSF1A.

A study was made of the effect of chronic administration of the hypolipidemic drug clofibrate on the activity and intracellular localization of rat liver aldehyde dehydrogenase. The enzyme was assayed using several aliphatic and aromatic aldehydes. Clofibrate treatment caused a 1.5 to 2.3-fold increase in the liver specific aldehyde dehydrogenase activity. The induced enzyme has a high Km for acetaldehyde and was found to be located in peroxisomes and microsomes. Clofibrate did not alter the enzyme activity in the cytoplasmic fraction. The total peroxisomal aldehyde dehydrogenase activity increased 3 to 4-fold under the action of clofibrate. Disruption of the purified peroxisomes by the hypotonic treatment or in the alkaline conditions resulted in the release of catalase from the broken organelles, while aldehyde dehydrogenase as well as nucleoid-bound urate oxidase and the peroxisomal membrane marker NADH:cytochrome c reductase remained in the peroxisomal 'ghosts'. At the same time, treatment by Triton X-100 led to solubilization of the membrane-bound NADH: Prednisone 8 Tablets cytochrome c reductase and aldehyde dehydrogenase from intact peroxisomes and their 'ghosts'. These results indicate that aldehyde dehydrogenase is located in the peroxisomal membrane. The peroxisomal aldehyde dehydrogenase is active with different aliphatic and aromatic aldehydes, except for formaldehyde and glyceraldehyde. The enzyme Km values lie in the millimolar range for acetaldehyde, propionaldehyde, benzaldehyde and phenylacetaldehyde and in the micromolar range for nonanal. Both NAD and NADP serve as coenzymes for the enzyme. Aldehyde dehydrogenase was inhibited by disulfiram, N-ethylmaleimide and 5,5'-dithiobis(2-nitrobenzoic)acid. According to its basic kinetic properties peroxisomal aldehyde dehydrogenase seems to be similar to a clofibrate-induced microsomal enzyme. The functional role of both enzymes in the liver cells is discussed.

Ketoconazole is a well-tolerated oral antifungal agent with a broad spectrum of activity in vitro, but in vitro testing has not yet been correlated to in vivo results. In addition, many variables that can alter in vitro test results have been identified. The drug shows effectiveness in the treatment of paracoccidioidomycosis, chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis, oral thrush, coccidioidomycosis and histoplasmosis. It was recently approved for use in blastomycosis. It is not yet approved for use in dermatophyte infections, but a large body of literature exists supporting this application. Ketoconazole has several reported drug interactions, including lower bioavailability with cimetidine, accumulation of cyclosporin during concurrent therapy and a possible disulfiram-like reaction with alcohol. It is highly protein bound to albumin and is extensively metabolized. Dosage adjustment is not required in renal failure. The main side effects are gastrointestinal and occur in 5-10% of the patients. Rare side effects include gynecomastia and hepatotoxicity. The latter is reported to occur in 1 of 12,000 patients. Ketoconazole impairs testosterone synthesis, and therefore it is recommended that administration more than once daily be avoided in men. The usual dosage is 200-400 mg administered once daily. Few comparative Lamictal Bipolar Dosage or controlled studies have been published thus far. How it compares to amphotericin B is not known. The optimum dosage and the optimum duration of therapy are not established.

BEN plasma concentrations increased after administration of disulfiram, suggesting that ALDH mediates the rapid metabolism of BEN in vivo, which may explain the increased toxicity seen with BEN after administration of disulfiram. Our results suggest that the coadministration of BEN with drugs that inhibit ALDH to patients that are ALDH deficient may cause liver damage.

A pilot study of a new injectable sustained-release formulation of disulfiram was performed in two alcoholic volunteers. Both subjects were treated with a single subcutaneous dose of disulfiram (1g or 2g). An oral alcohol challenge (0.15g/kg) was administered before the disulfiram was injected, and similar posttreatment alcohol challenges were repeated on days 7, 14, 21, and 28. Subjects were observed at five minute intervals for a period of 90 minutes after all alcohol challenges. Subjective responses were monitored, as well as heart rate, blood pressure, skin temperature, and the concentration of ethanol and acetaldehyde in the breath. Persistent and statistically significant changes were observed in the subjective and objective responses to alcohol during the posttreatment period. These responses to the alcohol challenges were consistent with disulfiram-ethanol reactions resulting from the persistent pharmacologic effects of the parenteral sustained-release disulfiram.
