- 2013 SpringerLuisa Rocha, Esper A. Cavalheiro, editors.Although more than 10 new antiepileptic drugs have been developed in the past decade, epilepsy remains resistant to drug therapy in about one-third of patients, many of whom struggle with the disease their entire lives. Managing these patients is a challenge and requires a structured multidisciplinary approach. The book includes chapters on all issues related to pharmacoresistance in epilepsy, and describes recent developments in the pathogenesis and treatment of this disorder. It addresses abnormalities in inhibitory mechanisms, epilepsy-related changes to the immune system, development of pharmacoresistance caused by chronic exposure to antiepileptic drugs, and novel therapeutic strategies for preventing or slowing down the progression of the disease. Clinicians and basic scientists alike will find up-to-date information on the development of pharmacoresistance, as well as reviews of mechanisms associated with epilepsy that may help them consider novel strategies for preventing the development of pharmacoresistance in the first place. The book also features information on new therapeutic strategies for control of epilepsy, such as transcutaneous electrical stimulation and virtual screening of new antiepileptic drugs. Pharmacoresistance in Epilepsy: From Genes and Molecules to Promising Therapies is useful to anyone working in the field, whether they're studying epilepsy in the lab or treating it in a doctor's office.
- 2015 SpringerArturo Evangelista, Christoph A. Nienaber, editors.This book is driven by the considerable progress made by novel imaging techniques in understanding the pathophysiology and evolution of aortic disease and its diagnosis. Despite the lack of symptoms in stable conditions, most aortic diseases have a high morbidity and mortality. New therapeutic strategies such as endovascular treatment and surgical techniques have appeared to improve conventional surgery in advanced phases of the disease, but until recently, medical treatment has focused on the control of cardiovascular risk factors using beta-blockers to reduce aortic wall stress by reducing blood pressure and heart rate. Pharmacotherapy in Aortic Disease updates the reader on the new medical treatment that are changing the natural history of these diseases. Leading experts have created a critical in-depth, yet concise, analysis of the available medical treatments for different aortic disease entities. Both basic research studies and clinical trials discussed in this book serve as a base for improving therapeutic management, delaying the need for surgery, and prolonging survival in these patients.

- 2014 SpringerGert Folkerts, Johan Garssen, editors.This volume examines the effects of natural products and functional/medical foods (nutritional programming) on disease management. It specifically focuses on diseases related to inflammation and immunity, cancer and cachexia, allergies, and brain and neuro/immune. As both pharmacologists and nutritionists are recognizing that the one disease/one target/one drug (or nutrient) concept will be less successful than in the past, this book aims to stress the importance of a multi-target approach versus a single-target approach. It also presents aspects of molecular characteristics of food ingredients toward clinical effectiveness and relevance. The interest in food in health and disease has exploded in the past few years, and publications on the microbiome can be found in all major scientific journals and newspapers. A new concept uses functional foods hand in hand with standard pharmacological therapies, which can be conceptualized in the term 'pharma-nutrition.' With the complementary values of pharma and nutrition, scientists might be able to overcome the increased incidence worldwide of complex multi-factorial disorders, chronic and degenerative diseases in particular.

- 2015 WileySarah E. Edwards, Ines Rocha, Elizabeth M. Williamson, Michael Heinrich.Healthcare professionals, including doctors, pharmacists and nurses, are often confronted with patients who use over-the-counter (OTC) herbal medicinal products and food supplements. While taking responsibility for one's own health and treatment options is encouraged, many patients use these products based on limited (and sometimes inaccurate) information from non-scientific sources, such as the popular press and internet. There is a clear need to offer balanced, well-informed advice to patients, yet a number of studies have shown that, generally, conventionally trained health practitioners consider their knowledge about herbal medicinal products and supplements to be weak. Phytopharmacy fills this knowledge gap, and is intended for use by the busy pharmacist, nurse, or doctor, as well as the 'expert patient' and students of pharmacy and herbal medicine. It presents clear, practical and concise monographs on over a hundred popular herbal medicines and plant-based food supplements. Information provided in each monograph includes: Indications Summary and appraisal of clinical and pre-clinical evidence Potential interactions Contraindications Possible adverse effects An overview of the current regulatory framework is also outlined, notably the EU Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive. This stipulates that only licensed products or registered traditional herbal medicinal products (THRs), which have assured quality and safety, can now legally be sold OTC. Monographs are included of most of the major herbal ingredients found in THRs, and also some plant-basedfood supplements, which while not strictly medicines, may also have the potential to exert a physiological effect.
- 2014 SpringerFabrizio Benedetti, Paul Enck, Elisa Frisaldi, Manfred Schedlowski, editors.Due to the recent explosion of placebo research at many levels the Editors believe that a volume on Placebo would be a good addition to the Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology series. In particular, this volume will be built up on a meeting on Placebo which will be held in Tuebingen (Germany) in January 2013, and where the most prominent researchers in this field will present and exchange their ideas. The authors who will be invited to write chapters for this volume will be the very same speakers at this meeting, thus guaranteeing high standard and excellence in the topic that will be treated. The approach of the book is mainly pharmacological, including basic research and clinical trials, and the contents range from different medical conditions and systems, such as pain and the immune system, to different experimental approaches, like in vivo receptor binding and pharmacological/behavioral conditioning. Overall, the volume will give an idea of modern placebo research, of timely concepts in both experimental and clinical pharmacology, as well as of modern methods and tools in neuroscience.

In this context, augmentation and combination strategies are commonly employed to address this problem. Although multiple medication use common in psychiatric practice, reasons, efficacy and safety for polypharmacy, and augmentative strategies have remained unclear. It remains unclear if there is an evidence base to support polypharmacy. Furthermore, excessive and inappropriate use of psychotropic medications has been recognized as a public health problem.

- Protective signaling in the myocardium : a role for protein kinase cepsilon and aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 regulators in the treatment of myocardial infarction and heart failure2010Lihan Sun.The nearly 9 million incidences of myocardial infarction (MI) and the resultant heart failure in the United States alone call for a continued need for the development of novel therapeutics. However, the molecular basis of these diseases is highly complex and awaits further elucidation. Our lab has a long-standing interest in determining the role of protein kinase C (PKC) in cardiovascular diseases. Elevated expression of alpha, beta, epsilon and deltaPKCs is associated with cardiac dysfunction in failing murine and human hearts. Moreover, genetic and pharmacological modulations of PKC activities exert profound impact on the state of these diseases. However, characterization of the specific role of each PKC isozyme was hampered by the lack of isozyme-selective PKC regulators. To this end, Mochly-Rosen and co-workers have rationally designed and developed isozyme-selective peptide activators and inhibitors of PKC that have enabled us to examine the role of each PKC isozyme in any biological system. Using an epsilonPKC-selective inhibitor, we found that sustained inhibition of epsilonPKC suppressed excessive cardiac fibrosis and preserved cardiac function in a rat model of hypertension-induced heart failure, in vivo. To uncover the mechanistic link between epsilonPKC and cardiac fibrosis, I showed that activation of epsilonPKC increased the activity matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2), a critical protease that degrades the extracellular matrix to facilitate cardiac fibrosis. Further, using the epsilonPKC inhibitor and cardiac fibroblasts that lack epsilonPKC, I discovered that histone deacetylase 6 (HDAC6), a cytosolic enzyme that deaceylates alpha-tubulin, participates in epsilonPKC modulation of MMP-2 activity during cardiac fibrosis. These results suggest that the epsilonPKC-selective inhibitor can be a potential therapeutic for the treatment of heart failure. Aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 (ALDH2) was identified by our group as a mitochondrial substrate for epsilonPKC that confers cardioprotection from ischemic injury. ALDH2 activation during MI is cardioprotective, because it oxidizes and thus removes toxic aldehydes that accumulate due to lipid peroxidation during ischemia-reperfusion. Since these aldehydes form protein adducts that inactive many cellular enzymes, they contribute to non-reversible damage to the ischemic myocardium. A recent study discovered that ALDH2 is required for nitroglycerin bioactivation, in vivo, but its enzymatic activity is inhibited by prolonged treatment with nitroglycerin. This has prompted us to determine potential risks associated with nitroglycerin tolerance in association with the role that ALDH2 has in cardiac protection. The clinical implications here are of special interest to us, because any risks pertinent to nitroglycerin treatment, if validated, can affect millions of patients with cardiac diseases. Therefore, I set off to determine whether sustained nitroglycerin treatment increases injury to the ischemic myocardium using a rat model of myocardial infarction (MI). I confirmed that sustained nitroglycerin treatment, as might be given to patients with angina pectoris, inhibited ALDH2 activity in the rat myocardium, in vivo. Further, I found that continuous treatment of nitroglycerin resulted in more than 2-fold increase in infarct size and worsened cardiac function after MI, in vivo. I then used Alda-1, a selective ALDH2 activator our group discovered, to assess whether activation of ALDH2 could undo the nitroglycerin-induced cardiac injury. Indeed, concomitant treatment with Alda-1 and nitroglycerin inhibited nitroglycerin-induced increase in infarct size and restored post-MI cardiac function. This finding poses a challenge to the prevalent clinical practice: patients, under sustained nitroglycerin therapy for the management of angina pectoris, are at risk of increased cardiac damage if they develop an MI during the nitroglycerin treatment. My animal studies suggest that if Alda-1 is given together with nitroglycerin, it can reduce cardiac damage caused by nitroglycerin tolerance. Finally, to determine the mechanism underlying the role of nitroglycerin and Alda-1 in MI injury, I demonstrated that Alda-1 prevented nitroglycerin-induced inactivation of ALDH2 and the resultant elevation of protein carbonylation, a hallmark of toxic aldehydic adducts, in the myocardium. The result substantiates a health mechanism for the heart: loss of control over oxidative stress leads to an injured myocardium and a simple correction of that function undoes the bad.

- 2013 SpringerMathias Jucker, Yves Christen, editors.The misfolding and aggregation of specific proteins is an early and obligatory event in many of the age-related neurodegenerative diseases of humans, and appears to occur many years before the onset of clinical symptoms. The initial cause of this pathogenic cascade and the means whereby disease spreads through the nervous system, remain uncertain. A recent surge of research, first instigated by pathologic similarities between prion disease and Alzheimer's disease, has increasingly implicated corruptive protein templating, or seeding, as a prime factor in the neurodegenerative process. The prion-like corruption of proteins also characterizes such clinically and etiologically diverse neurological disorders as Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and frontotemporal lobar degeneration. Understanding the misfolding, aggregation, trafficking and pathogenicity of affected proteins thus could reveal universal principles and common therapeutic targets for some of the most devastating and intractable human brain disorders.

- 2010 SpringerKurt Hellmann, Walter Rhomberg, editors."Razoxane and dexrazoxane are two novel drugs with some uniquely useful features. They block cell division at the G2/M border, but nowhere else, so that they have a low toxicity profile. They suppress tumor metastasis and haemorrhages through normalization of pathological blood vessels. Razoxane potentiates radiotherapy especially in the treatment of soft tissue sarcomas and gastrointestinal neoplasms. They protect normal tissues against toxic chemicals, e.g. the myocardium against anthracyclines or subcutaneous tissue against injuries caused by incidental extravasations of anthracyclines. Dexrazoxane is the only drug approved by the FDA/EMEA for the specific purpose of preventing cardiac damage when giving the widely used and effective antitumor anthracyclines. The reduction of cardiotoxicity is achieved without response reduction or reducing of time to progression of tumors. While the full analysis of their actions at the molecular level is not yet completely understood, it seems most likely that it is via an inhibition on the topoisomerase II a. Moreover, the drugs have the ability to chelate several metals including iron, copper or zinc. The protection of normal tissues is nowhere more important than that of brain, and there are indications that the proteins thought to be responsible for the ravages of Alzheimer's disease could be stabilized by one or both these drugs."--P.  of cover.

- 2013 SpringerJose Russo, Irma H. Russo.This book is designed for advanced students and researchers in cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, medicine in general, and cancer in particular. It provides the latest data on the transcriptome of the mammary gland in order to establish the molecular and cellular biology of differentiation leading to cancer prevention. The authors have based their work on the epidemiological evidence that early first full term pregnancy is a protective factor in humans against breast cancer and using this knowledge have developed in vivo and in vitro experimental systems that have demonstrated mechanistically how the differentiation takes place. The transcriptoma analysis of the female breast shows that an early first full term pregnancy reprograms the organ by imprinting a genomic signature that differs according to reproductive history. This reprogramming takes place at the chromatin level by changing the transcriptional process. The modification of the transcriptional control is due to the expression of non-coding RNA sequences and post-transcriptional control driven by the spliceosome. The plasticity of the genome of the human breast makes possible this reprogramming that is not only induced by the physiological process of pregnancy but by the use of hormones mimicking pregnancy. The role of stem cells and their reprogramming during differentiation are presented as a new paradigm in breast cancer prevention.

- 2013William Hazen Parsons.Voltage-gated sodium channels (NaV) serve an essential role in physiology. Accordingly, their dysfunction is associated with a number of human diseases and disorders, including epilepsy, cardiac arrhythmias, and chronic pain conditions. Designed by Nature as a chemical weapon, the naturally occurring channel blocker (+)-saxitoxin (STX) can be repurposed as a tool for studying these large integral membrane proteins. Access to new toxin derivatives through de novo synthesis offers a unique strategy to probe NaV structure and function, circumventing key limitations associated with existing methods for studying these proteins. The preparation and electrophysiological evaluation of an expanded library of N21-modified STX analogues is described herein. Characterization of the binding properties of these nanomolar NaV inhibitors has contributed to the development of an enhanced model for the structure of the inner pore of the channel. A select set of STX-fluorophore conjugates that bind reversibly to NaV with submicromolar potency serve as fluorescent markers of channels in living cells to study channel motility in the cell membrane. By contrast, maleimide-conjugated STX derivatives can be engineered to act as irreversible inhibitors of ion conductance when applied to wild-type NaV isoforms. The unique binding behavior of these derivatives has been leveraged to develop a new class of NaV probes for use in live cell imaging experiments and protein profiling studies. Maleimide-toxin conjugates with bioorthogonal reactive groups have been synthesized and can be employed for ligation of visualization and isolation tags to covalently modified channels. Appendage of fluorine-18 to a modified STX affords a probe for studying NaV expression in living subjects. An efficient synthetic route yields a derivative that binds with nanomolar affinity to several NaV isoforms. Biodistribution, autoradiography, and PET-MRI imaging studies demonstrate accumulation of the radiotracer at the site of injury in a rat model of neuropathic pain. This uptake correlates with the previously reported upregulation of NaV isoforms at this site, validating the utility of this probe as a NaV imaging agent. Collectively, these STX derivatives, uniquely available through chemical synthesis, represent a novel set of molecular probes for studying NaV function in vitro and in vivo.

- 2013 SpringerPhilipp Y. Maximov, Russell E. McDaniel, V. Craig Jordan.Tamoxifen is a pioneering medicine for the treatment and prevention of breast cancer. It is the first drug targeted therapy in cancer to be successful. Tamoxifen targets the tumor estrogen receptor. The therapy is known to have saved the lives of millions of women over the past 40 years. This monograph, written by V. Craig Jordan - known as the "father of tamoxifen" - and his Tamoxifen Team at the Georgetown University Washington DC, illustrates the journey of this milestone in medicine. It includes a personal interview with V. Craig Jordan about his four decades of discovery in breast cancer research and treatment. V. Craig Jordan was there for the birth of tamoxifen as he is credited for reinventing a "failed morning after contraceptive" to become the "gold standard" for the treatment of breast cancer. He contributed to every aspect of tamoxifen application in therapeutics and all aspects of tamoxifen's pharmacology. He discovered the selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) and explored the new biology of estrogen-induced apoptosis.

- 2012Elizabeth Josephine Beans.The theme of this work is to utilize hypothesis driven synthetic manipulation to enhance our understanding of the biological effects of prostratin and its highly potent analogs, and to utilize this understanding for the improvement of the therapeutic properties thereof. Prostratin, a natural product activator of protein kinase C (PKC), is a molecule of interest for targeting latent HIV, the primary obstacle to HIV eradication in infected individuals on effective highly active antiretroviral therapy. Chapter one describes the current state of the HIV pandemic, therapeutic strategies, prospects for a cure, and clinical studies toward immune activation therapy. Chapter two is a seminal and complete analysis of the biological effects of prostratin, a natural product candidate for immune activation therapy. Chapter three presents the design, synthesis, and evaluation of highly potent analogs of prostratin via an efficient semi-synthetic route. Chapter four presents the design and synthesis of isotopically labeled prostratin analogs to be utilized in solid-state NMR studies probing the active conformation of the PKC/activator complex in its membrane associated state. Chapter five presents the design, synthesis, and evaluation of prodrugs of prostratin and prostratin analogs for the optimization of pharmacologic properties.

- 2010 SpringerR. Manjunatha Kini, Kenneth J. Clemetso, Francis S. Markland, Mary Ann McLane, Takashi Morita, editors."Circulation of blood is vital for the survival of vertebrates, including man. Mainly, it plays an important role in carrying food nutrients and oxygen to every tissue and organ and in removing all waste products and carbon dioxide. Any imbalance in the hemostatic and cardiovascular systems can lead to death and severe debility. A number of animals have developed mechanisms to target these systems and exploit the vulnerability. In some species (for example, snakes), such mechanisms are used to immobilize and kill the victim/prey, whereas in others (for example, insects, such as leaches, mosquitoes and ticks), they are used to provide a continuous supply of blood. These mechanisms include, but are not limited to, procoagulant and anticoagulant actions that affect the coagulation cascade and platelet aggregation, as well as altering vasodilatory responses. In all these various animals, these mechanisms have evolved to perfection over millions of years to support their survival. In last 3-4 decades, due to the efforts of scientists from various backgrounds including biology, protein chemistry, molecular biology, pharmacology, hematology, and structural biology, significant progress in understanding the structure-function relationships, as well as the mechanism of action have been made in a number of exogenous factors that affect blood coagulation, platelet aggregation and vasodilation from various animals. These exogenous factors have contributed significantly to the development of research tools as well as providing new therapeutic agents."
- 2011 CRCnetBASEAjay K. Banga."Skin, once thought to be an impenetrable barrier, is an extremely active organ capable of interacting with its environment. Advancements in science combined with the need for diverse drug delivery modalities have introduced a variety of transdermal and intradermal products for existing drugs at a fraction of the cost of new drug development. Commercialization of transdermal drug delivery requires technology from many disciplines beyond pharmaceutical sciences, such as polymer chemistry, adhesion sciences, mass transport, web film coating, printing, and medical technology. A comprehensive discussion of these technologies and practices, Transdermal and Intradermal Delivery of Therapeutic Agents: Application of Physical Technologies, covers: Commercial development of devices and products based on transdermal physical enhancement technologies, Selecting optimal enhancement technology for a specific drug molecule using case studies that cover physicochemical properties as well as practical commercial considerations related to cost, unmet clinical needs, marketing, or intellectual property protection, Technologies such as microneedles, iontophoresis, electroporation, and sonophoresis with examples for delivery of small molecules, cosmeceuticals, proteins, and vaccines, Practical information on experimental procedures and challenges related to skin irritation and safety issues. Up-to-date and accessible to researchers and industry experts, this book provides a comprehensive discussion of the physical approaches and practical considerations for the laboratory and marketplace"--Provided by publisher.
- Translational research methods for diabetes, obesity and cardiometabolic drug development : a focus on early phase clinical studies2015 SpringerAndrew J. Krentz, Lutz Heinemann, Marcu Hompesch, editors.This book aims to aid the selection of the most appropriate techniques for use in early phase (1 and 2) clinical studies of new drugs for diabetes, obesity, and related cardiometabolic disease. Clinical research methods for assessing the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of new diabetes drugs, e.g. the euglycaemic clamp technique, have become well-established in proof-of-mechanism studies; however, selection of the best techniques is by no means straightforward. This book will aid the understanding of the need for new pharmacotherapies for type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and obesity and the molecular targets of drugs currently in development. Emerging technologies including the omics disciplines are considered together with practical and ethical issues of early phase clinical trials in subjects with cardiometabolic disorders. Translational Research Methods for Diabetes, Obesity and Cardiometabolic Drug Development will be of interest to biomedical scientists, pharmacologists, academics involved in metabolic research and clinicians practicing in these specialties.
- 2013 SpringerYuichi Sugiyama, Bente Steffansen, editors.Transporters in Drug Development is a corner stone in a high profile book series on advances in pharmaceutical sciences initiated by AAPS, Springer and Professor Daan Crommelin as series Editor. Transporters in Drug Development: Discovery, Optimization, Clinical Study and Regulation list chapters written by leading researchers in the transporter field from academia, pharmaceutical industry and medicines agencies. The book encompasses examples and advises on how membrane transporters can be dealt with in academic industrial drug discovery and pharmaceutical development as well as from a regulatory perspective. Methods and examples of in vitro characterization of single transporters in intestine, liver and kidney are described as well as characterization of substrate overlap between various transporters. Furthermore, probes and biomarkers are suggested for studies of the transporters impact on the pharmacokinetics of drug substrates/candidates interacting on transporters. The challenges of translating in vitro observed interaction of transporters into in vivo relevance are discussed as well as the perspectives of applying targeted proteomics and mechanistic modelling in this process.

- 2014 SpringerPeter C. Ruben, editor.A number of techniques to study ion channels have been developed since the electrical basis of excitability was first discovered. Ion channel biophysicists have at their disposal a rich and ever-growing array of instruments and reagents to explore the biophysical and structural basis of sodium channel behavior. Armed with these tools, researchers have made increasingly dramatic discoveries about sodium channels, culminating most recently in crystal structures of voltage-gated sodium channels from bacteria. These structures, along with those from other channels, give unprecedented insight into the structural basis of sodium channel function. This volume of the Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology will explore sodium channels from the perspectives of their biophysical behavior, their structure, the drugs and toxins with which they are known to interact, acquired and inherited diseases that affect sodium channels and the techniques with which their biophysical and structural properties are studied.
