Sixty-eight compounds were defined as hits with activity in both of these cell lines (<40 % cell survival compared with control) at 10 μM drug concentration. Analysis of chemical similarity of the hit compounds revealed several distinct clusters, among them the antiparasitic benzimidazole group. Two of these compounds, mebendazole (MBZ) and albendazole (ABZ) are registered for human use. Data from the NCI 60 cell line panel revealed only modest correlation between MBZ and ABZ, indicating differences in mechanism of action. This was further supported when gene expression signatures were compared in the CMAP database; ABZ ranked very low when MBZ was used as the query signature. Furthermore, MBZ, but not ABZ, was found to significantly interact with several protein kinases including BCR-ABL and BRAF. Analysis of the diagnosis-specific activity of MBZ showed activity in 80 % of the colon cancer cell lines in the NCI 60 panel. Three additional colon cancer cell lines and three cell models with non-malignant phenotypes were subsequently tested, confirming selective colon cancer activity of MBZ.
Using DBA/2J mice, tissue homogenates of larval Echinococcus multilocularis were injected into the mesenteric veins to generate the liver infection. Mice were treated with either albendazole or mebendazole for prolonged periods to examine the morphological changes of the metacestode. Albendazole induced disorganization of both laminated and germinal layers and suppressed the maturation of vesicles. Amorphous but loosely laminated PAS-positive material was observed inside the damaged vesicles, although new vesicles slightly developed inside or outside of the damaged ones. Active proliferation of vesicles occurred after treatment with albendazole was terminated. Hydatid cysts were more severely damaged in mice treated with mebendazole and new vesicles did not develop around the damaged ones. Also, hydatid cysts reappeared after treatment with mebendazole was terminated. These results indicate that these drugs do not eliminate larval E. multilocularis in the long-term, but mebendazole has a higher suppressive effect on multivesiculation than albendazole.

The anthelmintic effects of flubendazole (methyl [5-(4-fluorobenzoyl)-1-H-benzimidazol-2-yl] carbamate) (Janssen Pharmaceutica) were evaluated in jirds (Meriones unguiculatus) and cats (Felis cattus) infected with Brugia pahangi. Flubendazole was macrofilaricidal at 5 x 2.5 mg/kg and 1 x 25 mg/kg in jirds and 1 x 100 mg/kg in cats when administered by subcutaneous injection. It also killed developing larvae in jirds. It was not microfilaricidal.

The efficacy of broad-spectrum anthelmintics in current use was studied in Hengshan County, Hunan Province. The vermicides under study include albendazole (400mg, single dose), mebendazole composite (mebendazole 100 mg and levamisole 25mg bid x 3d), oxantel pyrantel pamoate composite (pyrantel pamoate 150 mg and oxantel pamoate 150 mg bid x 2d), and pyrantel pamoate composite (base 10 mg/kg, single dose). Therapeutic effect assessed 2 weeks after medication revealed Ascaris egg negative rates or cure rates (CR) of 97.5-100% for the former 3 regimens, and 80.9% for the latter one; while CR for hookworm infection were 95.4%, 78.6-100%, 96.7% and 83.3%, respectively. A follow-up survey pursued 4 weeks post treatment showed no significant difference in CR for the above regimens. Judging from CR in Trichuris trichiura infection, pyrantel pamoate composite was recommended as the drug of choice (89.3%), which was followed by mebendazole composite (64.6-83.8%) and albendazole (28.2-42.6%), whereas pyrantel pamoate was inefficacious. Obvious egg reduction rates were evidenced post application of the above drugs in trichuriasis treatment except pyrantel pamoate at single dose.

Gemcitabine is a pyrimidine nucleoside analog that becomes triphosphorylated and competitively inhibits cytidine incorporation into DNA strands. Diphosphorylated gemcitabine irreversibly inhibits ribonucleotide reductase thereby preventing deoxyribonucleotide synthesis. Functioning as a potent chemotherapeutic, gemcitabine decreases neoplastic cell proliferation and induces apoptosis which accounts for its effectiveness in the clinical treatment of several leukemia and carcinoma cell types. A brief plasma half-life due to rapid deamination, chemotherapeutic-resistance and sequelae restrict gemcitabine utility in clinical oncology. Selective "targeted" gemcitabine delivery represents a molecular strategy for prolonging its plasma half-life and minimizing innocent tissue/organ exposure.

The efficiency of a new anticestode compound, 3,5-dibromo-2'-chloro-4'-isothiocyanato salicylanilide (GUPTA et al. 1980) for mass eradication of hymenolepiasis from rat colonies was assessed in a pilot study. The drug was administered with milk or food. For effective eradication, depending on the size of animals, single or multiple doses of 100 to 500 mg of the drug/kg body-weight, mixed in milk, or 50 mg/kg in feed were necessary. Better results were obtained when the compound was given in feed as it ensured effective consumption irrespective of the seasonal variations. The efficacy of the compound was also assessed on cysticercoids in intermediate hosts (Tribolium confusum) by feeding them on flour medicated at 5%, 1% and 0.1% levels. None of the concentrations killed the larvae or arrested their development.

This study evidenced that there is a relatively high prevalence of poor quality MEB, ALB and TNZ in Ethiopia: up to 45% if pharmacopoeial acceptance criteria are used in the traditional, dichotomous approach, and 28% if the new risk-based desirability approach was applied. The study identified assay as the most critical quality attributes. The country of origin was the most significant factor determining poor quality status of the investigated medicines in Ethiopia.
The systemic and local protective activity of Mongolian gerbils was examined after re-infection with Strongyloides venezuelensis. Mongolian gerbils were unable to expel S. venezuelensis adult worms from the intestine for over ten weeks after a primary infection. Therefore, immune animals were prepared by treating with mebendazole four weeks after a primary infection and then they were challenged by different maturation stages of the parasite; subcutaneous inoculation with the infective larvae (L3) obtained by faecal culture, oral administration of L3 obtained from the lungs of rats three days after a primary infection, or oral implantation of adult worms obtained from the intestines of rats seven days after a primary infection. The results show that, although immune animals were highly resistant against challenge infection by subcutaneous inoculation with cultured L3, they were unable to expel orally administered lung-recovered L3 nor orally implanted adult worms. Although potentiated mastocytosis was induced by challenge infections with lung-recovered L3 and adult worms, all mast cells were formalin-resistant, heparin-containing cells and never seen in the epithelial layer. In spite of the defective protective capacity at the intestinal mucosa, circulating antibody production specific to S. venezuelensis adult as well as L3 antigen was positive. Therefore, the inability of Mongolian gerbils to expel S. venezuelensis adult worms from the intestine seems to be due to the defects of effector/regulator cells, presumably mast cells, but not due to immune unresponsiveness to parasite antigen.

Strongyloidiasis is an intestinal parasitic disease caused by Strongyloides stercoralis. Basically, detecting larvae of S. stercoralis in feces makes definitive diagnosis. The ordinary agar plate culture method developed at our department is much simpler to handle and much more sensitive than the conventional filter paper culture method. It is considered to be the most useful method in the diagnosis of strongyloidiasis and in evaluation of the eradicating effect. Among chemotherapeutic agents, thiabendazole representing the benzimidazole compounds is most effective. However, it has a problem in safety, since its adverse effects and liver dysfunction occur with a high incidence, and it can be severe. Regarding the effects of mebendazole, albendazole and ivermectin, a study was conducted which included many patients. A high incidence of liver dysfunction was observed with mebendazole, and eradicating effect was not sufficient with albendazole. Ivermectin is different from benzimidazole compounds in a pharmacokinetic profile. However, ivermectin showed a strong anthelmintic effect with the least toxicity. We therefore consider ivermectin is the most useful drug for the treatment of strongyloidiasis.

A quantitative liquid chromatography-electrospray tandem mass spectrometry method for the determination of mebendazole and its hydrolysed and reduced metabolites in sheep liver has been developed and validated. The benzimidazole substances were extracted with ethyl acetate after the sample mixture had been made alkaline. The HPLC separation was performed on a reversed-phase C18 column with gradient elution using a mobile phase consisting of water containing 0.1% formic acid and acetonitrile. The analytes were detected after atmospheric pressure electrospray ionization on a tandem quadrupole mass spectrometer in MS-MS mode. The components were measured by the MS-MS transitions of the molecular ion to the two most abundant daughter ions. The detection limits are lower than 1 microg kg(-1). For this application, the validation limit was set at 50 microg kg(-1). The examined validation parameters were in accordance with the permitted tolerances ranges stipulated in the proposed new European validation criteria for residue surveillance. For the three analytes, the overall recovery was higher than 90%. The RSD for the repeatability ranged from 5 to 11%. The range for the within-laboratory reproducibility was between 2 and 17%. The decision limits for mebendazole, the hydrolysed and the reduced metabolite were 56.6, 61.8 and 64.2 microg kg(-1), respectively. The detection capabilities for these substances were 60.0, 86.1 and 90.9 microg kg(-1), respectively.

Out of 123 patients with hydatid-disease of the liver in 15 patients biliary engorgement by compression from cysts or parasites in the biliary system were observed. Diagnosis can be established by serology, sonography, scintigraphy, ERCP and CT. Invasive diagnostic procedures are not indicated. Surgical therapy of echinococcosis is in the first place; long-term adjuvant chemotherapy by Mebendazole is indicated if the resection of the cysts is not complete.

Heavy infection with the geohelminth Trichuris trichiura causes the Trichuris dysentery syndrome (TDS). Growth retardation and anaemia are characteristic of TDS and both are associated with poor development. We have examined the growth and developmental responses to treatment in 19 children aged 27-84 months with TDS. Developmental levels (DQ) were measured with the Griffiths mental development scales. Compared with a control group matched for age, gender and neighbourhood, the TDS children initially had serious deficits in DQ (24 points, p < 0.001). After a year of anthelmintic treatment, the TDS children showed improvement in locomotor development (p < 0.001) compared with the controls. The TDS children also had initial deficits in height-for-age, weight-for-height, mid-upper arm circumference and haemoglobin levels. They caught up rapidly in indices of wasting (weight-for-height and mid-upper arm circumference) and showed steady improvement in height-for-age and haemoglobin levels. Catch-up in height was comparable to that of children recovering from coeliac disease. The importance of continuing prevention after initial treatment is highlighted.

Among those children who had evidence of parasites in stool samples at the beginning of the trial, 18 of 28 who were treated with mebendazole recovered from halitosis, compared with 2 of 24 who received placebo (relative risk [RR] for recovery, 7.7; 95% confidence interval [CI], 2.0-29.9). Among those who did not have stool parasites, 14 of 52 improved with mebendazole, compared with 10 of 48 taking placebo (RR, 1.3; 95% CI, 0.6-2.6). Mebendazole intake made a significant difference whether or not the children had parasites (P =.002).

A parasitological and immuno-hematological study was undertaken simultaneously in fifty South-East asian refugees at the time of their arrival in France. --in this series the frequency of individuals having a P2 erythrocyte phenotype is 80%. --54 % of these immigrants were found to be carriers of Clonorchis sinensis, a parasite rarely found in Europe. --in 40,7 % of these subjects infested by Clonorchis sinensis, the following properties were disclosed concerning the P1 allo-antibody: slow-P1 red cell agglutination at 22 degrees C, no hemolysis of P1 red cells in vitro, IgM antibody, in weak titers. The immuno-hematological study of the immuno-serums with respect to distomian antigens coupled with adsorption-elution using P1+++ red cells shows a close immunological relationship between the antibody of parasite origin and the anti-P1 allo-antibody.

Reported here are two new cases of imported cutaneous gnathostomiasis that occurred in two Spanish women. The first patient acquired the helminth infection while travelling in Southeast Asia and the second in Mexico. Although the highest prevalence of gnathostomiasis infection is in Southeast Asia, the disease is now an emerging public health problem in some countries of Latin America. The cases reported here demonstrate the increasing frequency with which human gnathostomiasis is being diagnosed in nonendemic countries as a result of more extensive international travel and migration.

The problem of chemotherapeutic treatments for human echinococcosis has not been completely solved. The benzimidazole-methylcarbamates (BZD), broad-spectrum antihelminthic agents, such as mebendazole and albendazole are the only drugs licensed for treatment of hydatid cysts. These drugs bind directly to beta-tubulin causing the disruption of microtubule-based processes in helminths. However, the molecular bases of their multiple biological activities are poorly understood. Recently, the effect of halogenated derivative flubendazole (FLBZ), against E. granulosus larvae has been conclusively demonstrated. The comparative effectiveness of FLBZ, among other BZDs, was shown by means of vitality tests and time of appearance of morphological damage of larvae. In the present study, we examined biochemical and molecular changes on protoscoleces treated with FLBZ. We show that FLBZ induces: 1) an increase in cytosolic free calcium, 2) a decrease in tubulin transcripts, 3) a reduction of mMDH expression and 4) a significant decrease in glycogen levels. These results are consistent with the existence of multiple targets for FLBZ, such as calcium signaling and energy metabolism, and contribute to the understanding of the pharmaceutical properties of FLBZ.
