VIP: Neladenoson Bialanate Hydrochloride: A Prodrug of a Partial Adenosine A1 Receptor Agonist

VIP: Neladenoson Bialanate Hydrochloride: A Prodrug of a Partial Adenosine A1 Receptor AgonistDr. Daniel Meibom,* Dr. Barbara Albrecht-Küpper,* et al.

Adenosine is the emergency molecule that protects the body from tissue injury during ischemic events. It acts on four different receptors. Activation of adenosine A1 receptors has been shown to be responsible for protective processes in the heart during ischemia, suggesting new options for cardiovascular therapies. However, undesired physiological effects in the heart such as bradycardia and widespread tissue distribution of the A1 receptor makes use of the pharmacological pathways challenging. Read more...

    Stopping the fixer: The catalytic activity of DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK) is critical to its ability to repair lethal DNA double-strand breaks, and many attempts have been made to identify small-molecule inhibitors of DNA-PK activity as an approach to induce tumour chemo- and radiosensitisation. DNA-PK catalytic inhibitors have now progressed into clinical development, which should help to further advance our understanding of whether this approach is a promising therapeutic strategy for the treatment of cancer.
