Cholinium-based Ionic Liquids as Bioinspired Hydrotropes to Tackle Solubility Challenges in Drug Formulation.

Eur J Pharm Biopharm 2021 Apr 22. Epub 2021 Apr 22.

CICECO - Aveiro Institute of Materials, Department of Chemistry, University of Aveiro, 3810-193 Aveiro, Portugal. Electronic address:

Hydrotropy is a well-established strategy to enhance the aqueous solubility of hydrophobic drugs, facilitating their formulation for oral and dermal delivery. However, most hydrotropes studied so far possess toxicity issues and are inefficient, with large amounts being needed to achieve significant solubility increases. Inspired by recent developments in the understanding of the mechanism of hydrotropy that reveal ionic liquids as powerful hydrotropes, in the present work the use of cholinium vanillate, cholinium gallate, and cholinium salicylate to enhance the aqueous solubility of two model drugs, ibuprofen and naproxen, is investigated.

Evaluation of single and combined effects of two pharmaceuticals on the marine gastropod Phorcus lineatus enzymatic activity under two different exposure periods.

Ecotoxicology 2021 May 7;30(4):756-765. Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Departamento de Biologia, Universidade de Aveiro, Campus de Santiago, 3810-193, Aveiro, Portugal.

Pharmaceutical drugs are among the most used chemicals for human and veterinary medicines, aquaculture and agriculture. Pharmaceuticals are environmentally persistent, biologically active molecules, thereby having the potential to exert biological effects on non-target species. Among the most used pharmaceuticals, one may find salicylic acid (SA), a non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that acts by inhibiting the enzymes cyclooxigenases; it is also possible to identify acetazolamide (ACZ), a diuretic that acts by inhibiting the activity of carbonic anhydrase (CA).

Fragrance materials (FMs) affect the larval development of the copepod Acartia tonsa: An emerging issue for marine ecosystems.

Ecotoxicol Environ Saf 2021 Jun 18;215:112146. Epub 2021 Mar 18.

Department of Environmental Sciences, Informatics and Statistics, Ca' Foscari University of Venice, via Torino 155, I-30170 Mestre, Venezia, Italy.

Fragrance materials (FMs) are used in a variety of detergents and cosmetics, including household and personal care products. Despite their widespread use and the growing evidence of their occurrence in surface waters worldwide, very little is known about their toxicity towards marine species, including a key component of the marine food webs such as copepods. Thus, we investigated the toxicity of six of the more long-lasting and stable commercial fragrances, including Amyl Salicylate (AMY), Oranger Crystals (ORA), Hexyl Salicylate (HEX), Ambrofix (AMB), Peonile (PEO), and Benzyl Salicylate (BZS), to assess their ability to impair the larval development of the calanoid copepod Acartia tonsa.

Ecotoxicology 2021 Apr 23;30(3):387-401. Epub 2021 Feb 23.

ACECR-Research Institute of Applied Sciences, Shahid Beheshti University, Tehran, Iran.

The co-application of exogenous 100 µM melatonin (MT) and 100 µM salicylic acid (SA) on 21-day-old safflower seedlings grown in the presence of cadmium (Cd, 100 µM) toxicity was investigated. The application of MT, SA, or MT + SA efficiently improved toxicity symptoms and declined Cd toxicity as shown by a considerable rise in plant biomass production and chlorophyll content accompanied by decreased level of oxidative stress markers. In Cd stressed plants, the simultaneous application of MT and SA led to sharp decreases in MDA and H2O2 amounts (61. Read More

Toxic stress-specific cytoprotective responses regulate learned behavioral decisions in C. elegans.

BMC Biol 2021 Feb 9;19(1):26. Epub 2021 Feb 9.

Department of Molecular Biology, Semmelweis University, Budapest, Hungary.

Background: Recognition of stress and mobilization of adequate "fight-or-flight" responses is key for survival and health. Previous studies have shown that exposure of Caenorhabditis elegans to pathogens or toxins simultaneously stimulates cellular stress and detoxification responses and aversive behavior. However, whether a coordinated regulation exists between cytoprotective stress responses and behavioral defenses remains unclear. Read More

Salicylates enhance CRM1 inhibitor antitumor activity by induction of S-phase arrest and impairment of DNA-damage repair.

Blood 2021 01;137(4):513-523

Division of Hematology, Department of Internal Medicine.

Chromosome region maintenance protein 1 (CRM1) mediates protein export from the nucleus and is a new target for anticancer therapeutics. Broader application of KPT-330 (selinexor), a first-in-class CRM1 inhibitor recently approved for relapsed multiple myeloma and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, have been limited by substantial toxicity. We discovered that salicylates markedly enhance the antitumor activity of CRM1 inhibitors by extending the mechanisms of action beyond CRM1 inhibition. Read More

Biol Pharm Bull 2021 ;44(1):140-143

Department of Biopharmaceutics, Kyoto Pharmaceutical University.

To establish a system for assessing drug permeation and irritation of the skin, the permeation of benzoic acid and isosorbide dinitrate, which are listed in the Pharmacopoeia, and the chemical irritation were evaluated using skin generated from human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). Multilayer structures and cellular markers (keratin 14 and 10, which are in basal and suprabasal epidermal layers) were clearly detected in our iPSC-based skin. Transepidermal water loss (TEWL) decreased after iPSC-derived keratinocytes were cultured on collagen gels from human primary fibroblasts. Read More
