Protocol

Cell experiment [1]:

Cell lines

MDA-MB-231 cells

Preparation method

This compound is soluble in DMSO. General tips for obtaining a higher concentration: Please warm the tube at 37 ℃ for 10 minutes and/or shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while. Stock solution can be stored below -20 ℃ for several months.

Reaction Conditions

20 nM; 72 hrs

Applications

In MDA-MB-231 cells, SH003 at 120 μg/mL with Doxorubicin at 20 nM showed a synergistic effect.

Animal experiment [2]:

Animal models

Female athymic nude mice injected s.c. with MB231 cells

Dosage form

3 mg/kg/day; delivered intratumorly

Applications

Doxorubicin in combination with adenoviral MnSOD (AdMnSOD) plus 1,3-bis(2-chloroethyl)-1-nitrosourea (BCNU) showed the greatest effect in decreasing the volumes of MB231 tumors and prolonging survival of mice.

Other notes

Please test the solubility of all compounds indoor, and the actual solubility may slightly differ with the theoretical value. This is caused by an experimental system error and it is normal.

Background

Doxorubicin is a semi-synthesized anticancer agent derived from bacterial culture. [1] It is an anthracycline antibiotic. It is been widely used in blood cancers, solid tumors and sarcomas.

Doxorubicin intercalates into DNA double strand and inhibits the progression of DNA topoisomerase II, stopping replication process. [2] Doxorubicin also induces histone eviction from open chromatin, causing DNA damage and epigenetic deregulation. [3]

Doxorubicin is administrated intravenously. Approximately 75% of doxorubicin and its metabolites bind to plasma protein. Doxorubicin does not cross blood brain barrier. 50% of the drug is eliminated unchanged from the body mainly though bile excretion. The remaining undergoes one-electron reduction, two-electron reduction, and deglycosidation. The major metabolite is a potent membrane ion pump inhibitor, which is associated with cardiomyopathy. [4]

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.

Abstract
Although a few factors, including body composition, age, gender, changes in monocyte count and repeated dosing, have impacts on pharmacokinetic properties of PLD, clinical risk factors of ovarian cancer patients who have PPE and receive PLD are rarely identified.
