    Description: An l -glutamine antagonist, 6-diazo-5-oxo- l -norleucin ( l -DON), inhibits replication of vesicular stomatitis virus, poliovirus and paramyxoviruses in cultured cells. We tested the antiviral activity of l -DON against different strains of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) in Vero cells. In the presence of a physiological plasma concentration of l -glutamine (0.5 mM) l -Don inhibited 50% production of virus plaques at concentrations ranging from 7.9 to 16 μ M. At concentrations of 40 μ M l -Don inhibited infectious virus yield by 99%. The antiviral activity of l -DON decreased with increasing l -glutamine concentrations. A concentration of 5000 μ M of l -Don had no significant effects on the viability of Vero cells. Transmission electron microscopical investigations showed that l -DON prevented mainly envelopment of viral nucleocapsids in the cytoplasm. The immunoprecipitation experiments demonstrated selective inhibition of synthesis of HSV-1 glycoproteins in l -DON treated cells. The results showed that l -DON inhibits HSV-1 replication at a late stage in the virus replication cycle, probably the cytoplasmic maturation of virions and subsequent virion egress from the cells.

    Description: Sodium valproate (VPA) belongs to the group of simple branched-chain fatty acids and due its anticonvulsive activity is broadly applied in the treatment of epilepsy. We previously showed that VPA is able to induce cellular differentiation, to enhance immunogenicity and to inhibit proliferation of human neuroblastoma (NB) cells in vitro. Furthermore, we demonstrated that VPA inhibits proliferation, enhances neural cell adhesion molecule expression and decreases CD44 expression of human and rat glioma cells in vitro. In the present study we investigated the anttitumoral effects of VPA on established human NB xenografts from UKF-NB-3 human NB cells in athymic (nude) mice. When the animals developed s.c. tumors of about 100 mm volume they were treated with 400 or 200 mg/kg/day VPA i.p. At the end of the treatment period (40 days) tumor volumes in animals treated with 400 and 200 mg/kg VPA were about 4− (p〈 0.0001) and 2-fold (p〈 0.0005) smaller than in the saline-treated control group, respectively. Histological examination of the remnant tumors of treated animals revealed induction of differentiation by induction of stroma-rich tumors and nodules that contained elongated NB cells. Pyknotic nuclei and apoptotic bodies indicated induction of apoptosis. We conclude that VPA is able to abrogate NB growth in vivo and may therefore be useful in the treatment of NB patients.

    Description: This review summarizes current strategies for the treatment of human cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection/diseases in high-risk patients such as transplant recipients and AIDS patients. Since the major drugs ganciclovir (Cytovene), foscarnet (Foscavir) and cidofovir (Vistide) are frequently associated with severe side effects and the formation of viral resistance, it should be endeavored to develop better strategies in anti-CMV treatment. Moreover, blocking of the viral replication does not always resolve the manifestations which are often linked with CMV-associated immunopathomechanisms. Thus, the efficacy of the available drugs is also discussed in the light of their ability to modulate inflammatory components of the cell-mediated immune system.
