Article: [A successful case of tanshinone II A treatment for relapsed acute promyelocytic leukemia after maintainance therapy of all-trans retinoic acid and arsenic trioxide].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: To observe the effects of Tanshinone II A (Tan II A) on acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) characterized by resistance to all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) and arsenic trioxide (ATO). A 21-year-old male patient with relapsed APL, who previously received the maintenance therapy with ATRA,ATO, 6-Mercaptopurine (6-MP) and Methotrexate (MTX) for 1 year, was given Tan II A 80 mg intravenously once a day, and the changes of hematological parameters and side effects of Tan II A were observed. The patient reached morphologically complete remission after using Tan II A intravenously for 54 days. During Tan II A treatment, obvious side effect was not observed. Tan II A treatment may be effective in relapsed APL cases with ATRA and ATO resistance.Sichuan da xue xue bao. Yi xue ban = Journal of Sichuan University.

Article: [The anti-leukemic effects of imatinib, daunorubicin and bortezomib on two leukemia cell lines with Ph(+)].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: To study the proliferative inhibition effects of imatinib, daunorubicin and bortezomib on two leukemia cell lines with Ph(+), chronic myelogenous leukemia cell line K562 expressing P210 protein and acute lymphoblastic leukemia cell line SUP-B15 expressing P190 protein. (1) The cells of the two cell lines treated with imatinib, daunorubicin and bortezomib for 72 hours were analyzed by MTT assay for proliferation. The proliferative activity was displayed by growth curve and IC50 value. (2) The bcr-abl transcriptant in the cells treated with imatinib (final concentration at 0, 0.35, 1 micromol/L) for 48 hours was detected by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). (1) The IC50 values of K562 and SUP-B15 cell lines treated with imatinib, daunorubicin and bortezomib for 72 hours were respectively (0.286 +/- 0.060) micromol/L, (0.303 +/- 0.009) micromol/L, (22.127 +/- 3.592) nmol/L and (1.387 +/- 0.180) micromol/L, (0.117 +/- 0.017) micromol/L, (12.350 +/- 0.740) nmol/L. (2) There was no change of bcr-abl expression level in both cell lines after the treatment of imatinib. Imatinib, daunorubicin and bortezomib showed anti-cancer effects on Ph(+) leukemia cells in vitro. K562 cells were more sensitive to imatinib than the other two drugs, whereas SUP-B15 cells are more sensitive to daunorubicin and bortezomib. The short time intervention of imatinib has no effect on the expression of bcr-abl in Ph (+) leukemia cell lines.Sichuan da xue xue bao. Yi xue ban = Journal of Sichuan University.
