Idiopathic sudden deafness is defined as sudden sensorineural hearing loss of undetermined etiology. As a consequence, various treatments have been developed for this disorder. Our study evaluated the effectiveness of pentoxifylline and prednisone in such treatment. We analyzed this treatment's results in our patients through conventional audiograms, and speech audiometry was performed in the acute stage and during the treatment. We diagnosed idiopathic sudden hearing loss in 20 patients (8 female and 12 male). The left ear was involved in 9 patients and the right in 11. All patients had been examined by us within 15 days from the onset of hearing loss. We compared the hearing threshold results in the different periods in this prospective study.

Group B patients showed a more significant improvement in their clinical and histopathologic evaluation. The serum TNF-a was significantly higher in OCP cases prior to therapy compared to the control group (p = 0.0001). Following therapy, serum TNF-a showed a more significant reduction in group B patients (77.4 ± 26.1 to 19.2 ± 15.6) compared to group A patients (50.3 ± 14.3 to 36.2 ± 18.3).

Serum levels of liver enzymes, blood ammonia and prothrombin time and the stage of hepatic encephalopathy were significantly improved in rats treated with dimethylsulfoxide or dimethylthiourea compared to the other treatment groups (p<0.001). Liver histology and the survival rate in these rats were not adversely affected by thioacetamide administration (p<0.001), while in all the other treatment groups those parameters were similar to control rats with fulminant hepatic failure. Furthermore, dimethylsulfoxide ameliorated liver damage and improved survival even when its administration was initiated 8 and 16 h after the first thioacetamide injection. The hepatic concentration of methanesulfinic acid, which is produced after direct interaction of dimethylsulfoxide with hydroxyl radicals, was increased five-fold in rats treated with thioacetamide+dimethylsulfoxide (p<0.001), suggesting a role for hydroxyl radical scavenging in the protection from fulminant hepatic failure in this model. In the group of thioacetamide-treated rats that were pretreated with L-NAME, liver enzymes, blood ammonia levels and the mortality rate were higher than in the control group, treated with thioacetamide only.

Despite the beneficial effects of blockade of the renin-angiotensin system in diabetic nephropathy (DN), albuminuria and progression of renal disease are not completely halted by these agents. Therefore, it is necessary to explore potential antiproteinuric and renoprotective effects of innovative therapeutic approaches. This study tested the hypothesis that the combination of pentoxifylline (PTF) with angiotensin II receptor blockers in normotensive patients with type 2 diabetes produces an additive antiproteinuric effect. Sixty-one patients with DN and residual albuminuria despite treatment with the recommended doses of ARB for >1 yr were randomly assigned to receive the addition of 1200 mg of PTF daily (n = 30) or to a control group (n = 31). Baseline characteristics were similar between groups, and correlation analysis showed a significant association between urinary albumin excretion (UAE) and urinary TNF-alpha (R = 0.53, P < 0.001). After 4 mo, albuminuria showed a significant decrease in patients who received PTF, from 900 mg/24 h (466 to 1542 mg/d) to 791 mg/24 h (309 to 1400 mg/d; P < 0.001), whereas no significant changes were observed in the control group: 920 mg/24 h (450 to 1489 mg/d) at baseline, and 900 mg/24 h (428 to 1800 mg/d) at the end of the study. The mean percentage variation of UAE in the treatment and control groups was -16.7 and 5.5%, respectively (between-group comparison, P < 0.001). This additive antiproteinuric effect was not dependent on changes in BP or metabolic control. However, both serum and urinary levels of TNF-alpha also decreased in patients who received PTF, from 6.4 pg/ml (2.1 to 9.7) and 16 pg/mg (8 to 29) at baseline to 4.6 pg/ml (0.4 to 9) and 14.2 pg/mg (3 to 26) at the end of the study, respectively (P < 0.01), without significant variations in control patients. Moreover, regression analysis at the end of the study showed a correlation between the change in UAE and the change in urinary TNF-alpha in patients who were treated with PTF (R = 0.49, P < 0.001). In conclusion, administration of PTF to patients who have type 2 diabetes and are under long-term treatment with an ARB produces a significant additive antiproteinuric effect associated with a reduction of urinary TNF-alpha excretion.
Therapy with pentoxiphylline for 24 weeks is associated with a decline in the levels of caspase 1 and caspase 8. Since the drug is known to produce TNF inhibition, this might result in reduced apoptosis and an improved CD4 lymphocyte survival.

Sperm cells extracted from testes (TESE) have poor chromatin quality and motility. Various substances are used in the laboratory to increase sperm motility and improve the ART outcomes; however, there are few research which considered improving both sperm motility and chromatin quality.
Lead (Pb) increases lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), nitric oxide (NO), lipid peroxidation (LPO), and liver damage. In this study, we investigated the role of protein kinase C (PKC) and p42/44 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) and the causal relationships between TNF-alpha, NO, and LPO in Pb-increased LPS-induced liver damage in rats. Treatment with PKC and p42/44 MAPK inhibitors significantly reduced Pb + LPS-induced NO, TNF-alpha, LPO, and liver damage, which was revealed by elevated serum levels of aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase. Pb + LPS coexposure significantly increased phosphorylation of p42/44 MAPK and TNF-alpha expression in peripheral blood cells; however, exposure to Pb + LPS did not induce TNF-alpha, NO, or LPO production and p42/44 MAPK activation in the liver. Pentoxifylline, a TNF-alpha inhibitor, also reduced liver damage but did not alter NO or LPO in Pb + LPS-treated rats. Thus, Pb increased LPS-induced liver damage through PKC and p42/44 MAPK modulation of TNF-alpha and oxidative stress, but modulation of TNF-alpha did not affect NO or LPO in rats.
Spontaneous degranulation of neonatal PMN was found to be significantly increased after 15 minutes compared with cells from adults (EL and LF concentration: 674 and 660 ng/10 6 PMN vs. 284 and 261 ng/10 6 PMN). At 45 minutes adult PMN showed an acceleration of degranulation in contrast to neonatal cells (EL and LF: 1827 and 1232 ng/10 6 PMN vs. 1400 and 860 ng/10 6 PMN). In presence of PTX (0,4 mg/ml) spontaneous release of EL and LF from neonatal PMN was inhibited by nearly 70 % at 45 min. while degranulation from adult PMN was found to be completely inhibited at 15 min. and reduced by 82 % and 78 % at 45 min. In presence of meconium (3 mg/ml) an increased degranulation of EL from PMN of both neonates and adults (317 % and 170 %) could be observed while LF release was found to be increased from neonatal cells only (267 % and 113 % respectively). PTX inhibited meconium-induced EL release in blood of bath neonates and adults by 63 % and 66 %, while LF release was inhibited by 72 % and 57 % respectively.
Doxorubicin (DOX) possesses a broad-spectrum antineoplastic activity; however, its clinical application is impeded by cardiotoxicity. This study aimed to investigate the protective effect of pentoxifylline (PXF), which possesses antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties against cardiotoxicity induced by a single high dose (15 mg/kg, i.p.) or multiple low doses (2.5 mg/kg, i.p., three times per week for 2 weeks) of DOX. At the end of the experimental period, the serum creatine kinase (CK)-MB and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) activities were measured. The hearts were then removed for evaluating TNF-α, NO, malondialdehyde (MDA), and reduced glutathione (GSH) levels, superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) activities, and the expression of iNOS, NF-κB, Fas ligand (FasL), and caspase-3. The administration of DOX in both dose regimens caused increases in serum CK-MB and LDH activities, in cardiac TNF-α, NO and MDA levels, as well as in the cardiac expression of iNOS, NF-κB, FasL and caspase-3, whereas it significantly reduced the cardiac GSH level, as well as SOD and CAT activities (P < 0.05). Prophylactic treatment of rats with PXF diminished DOX-induced alterations in theses parameters. Our results warrant the clinical use of PXF as an adjuvant therapy to abrogate cardiotoxicity of DOX and extend its clinical applications.

1. Inhibition of platelet aggregation in vitro by pentoxifylline is rather weak, requiring about 1 mM pentoxifylline. Ex vivo, however, 15 mg/kg p.o. pentoxifylline exerts an enhanced release of prostacyclin-(PGI2)-like antiaggregatory activity from rat aortas. 2. Rat aorta incubated in vitro with 1 microM pentoxifylline releases antiaggregatory activity in a similar manner. The conversion of prostaglandin H2 to PGI2-like activity which is catalyzed by vascular microsomes, also is drastically stimulated in vitro by addition of 1 microM pentoxifylline. 3. Despite its inhibitory effect on platelet cyclic AMP-phosphodiesterase pentoxifylline in vitro without PGI2 has no essential effect on cyclic AMP levels in human platelets. However, in presence of PGI2, release of which probably is increased by pentoxifylline cyclic AMP level as well as inhibition of aggregation are enhanced by pentoxifylline above the effects of PGI2 itself.

Effects of PTX on the content change of hepatic TGF-beta1, type I and type III collagen in schistosomiasis japonica mice with liver fibrosis were related to the dosage of PTX, high dose PTX treated group could significantly reduce the content of TGF-beta1 (0.709+/-0.111), type I (0.644+/-0.108) and type III (0.654+/-0.152) collagen compared with those of control group (0.883+/-0.140, 0.771+/-0.156, 0.822+/-0.129) with statistical significance (P<0.05). Low dose PTX could also reduce the hepatic content of TGF-beta1 (0.752+/-0.152), type I (0.733+/-0.117) and type III (0.788+/-0.147) collagen, but without statistical significance (P>0.05). Both high dose and low dose PTX groups have significant differences on the content of TGF-beta1, type I and type III collagen (P<0.05, P<0.05, P<0.01, respectively).

We evaluated the combined use of mouse specific TNFalpha mab (25 microg/mouse, Endogen) and pentoxifylline (PF, 100 mg/kg/day, p.o., TNFalpha release inhibitor) in the DSS (3% dextran sulphate solution) model of mouse colitis. Colitis was induced by the feeding of 3% DSS for three cycles. The study groups were: Group I: single injection of rat anti-mouse IgG, Group II: single injection of TNFalpha mab, Group III: daily PF for three cycles, Group IV: single injection of TNFalpha mab + PF for three cycles, Group V: TNFalpha mab at the beginning of each cycle (three injections) and Group VI: TNFalpha mab (three injections) + daily PF for three cycles. Daily disease activity (DAI) was measured throughout the study. At the end of each cycle, colon tissue was processed for histology, myeloperoxidase (MPO) and plasma TNFalpha.

Strong evidence suggests that TNF-alpha may be among the chemical factors involved in disk-related sciatica. TNF-alpha is involved in the genesis of nerve pain in animal models and may promote pain-signal production from nerve roots previously subjected to mechanical deformation. In animal experiments, TNF-alpha has been identified in nucleus pulposus and Schwann cells. Local production of endogenous TNF-alpha may occur early in the pathogenic process. Exposure to exogenous TNF-alpha induces electrophysiological, histological, and behavioral changes similar to those seen after exposure to nucleus pulposus, and these changes are more severe when mechanical compression is applied concomitantly. TNF-alpha antagonists diminish or abolish abnormalities in animal models. Other cytokines may be involved also, as suggested by the potent inhibitory effects of compounds such as doxycycline. Two open-label studies in humans suggest dramatic efficacy of TNF-alpha antagonists in alleviating disk-related sciatica. In contrast, the results of the only controlled study available to date do not support a therapeutic effect of TNF-alpha antagonists. Thus, whether TNF-alpha antagonist therapy is warranted in patients with disk-related sciatica remains an open question, and further randomized controlled studies are needed.

Despite of antimicrobial therapy mortality rate in the bacterial meningitis (BM) is high. The aim of the study was to assess the influence of anti-inflammatory treatment with dexamethasone and dexamethasone with pentoxifylline on the course of this disease and concentration of proinflammatory cytokines TNF-alpha, IL-1 beta, II-8 in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). 42 patients with the BM were analysed. They were divided into three groups on the basis of applied therapy: A--treated only with antibiotics, A+D--treated with antibiotics and dexamethasone, A+D+P--treated with antibiotics, dexamethasone and pentoxifylline. Anti-inflammatory therapy did not have impact on the resolution of inflammation (pleocytosis, protein and glucose level) in the CSF. However, it was established that adjuvant treatment with dexa-methasone and pentoxifylline has beneficial effect on the course of the BM. In this group 61.5% of patients recovered, in comparison with 28.6% in the group A+D and 26.7% in the group A. Mortality rate was: in the group A--33%, A+D--21.4%, A+D+P--7.7% (p = 0.01). Correlation between the outcome of the BM in the investigated groups and cytokines concentration in CSF was observed. In the group A+D+P all patients responded to the therapy with decrease of cytokine concentration, and coefficients of variation were low (TNF-alpha--1%, IL-1 beta--23.6%, IL-8--18.9%). Also in the group A+D decrease of cytokines concentration in the CSF was observed, however was not such significant in all cases. In the group of patients treated only with antibiotics concentration of cytokines in the CSF varied, even increased in some of them. Our investigation indicates that inhibition of cytokines production in central nervous system (CNS) with dexamethasone and pentoxifylline improves the outcome of BM and is associated with the reduction of neurological sequels and deaths.

Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into three equal groups: control group, saline-treated group, and PTX-treated group. Increased intraocular pressure was applied for 90 min to induce retinal ischemia, and reperfusion was established by lowering the bottle to eye level. The reperfusion period lasted for 48 h. In the PTX-treated group, an initial dose of 20 mg PTX was injected via tail vein at the beginning of reperfusion. Then the rat received infusion of PTX at a rate of 6 mg/kg/h throughout the entire reperfusion period. The retinal tissues were collected at the end of 1, 6, 12, 24, and 48 h of reperfusion, respectively, for biochemical analysis. Histological examination was done on the tissues collected at the end of 48 h after reperfusion.
Pentoxifylline (PTX) is a xanthine derivative indicated in treatment of intermittent claudication and chronic occlusive arterial diseases. It has low oral bioavailability and short half-life; thus, it was considered as a good candidate drug for the transdermal transfersomes formulation. In the present study, an attempt has been made for development, in-vitro and in-vivo evaluation of transdermal transfersomes using sodium cholate (SC) and non-ionic surfactants as edge activators. The optimal formulation, F4(Gcholate), exhibited drug entrapment efficiency of 74.9±1.6%, vesicles elasticity of 145±0.6 (mgs(-1)cm(-2)), zeta potential of -34.9±2.2mV, average vesicle diameter of 0.69±0.049μm with PDI of 0.11±0.037 and permeation flux of 56.28±0.19μgcm(-2)h(-1). It attained a prolonged drug release where 79.1±2.1% of PTX released after 10h of the run. The drug release kinetic obeys Higuchi model (R(2)=0.997) with Fickian diffusion mechanism. Moreover, the formula enhanced drug permeation through the excised rat's skin predominantly via the carrier-mediated mechanism by 9.1 folds in comparison with the control. Results of the in vivo pharmacokinetics study in male volunteers showed that F4(Gcholate) transfersomes formulation increased PTX absorption and prolonged its half-life comparing to the commercial oral SR tablets. Hence, the elastic transfersomes formulation of PTX possesses admirable potential to avoid drug metabolism, improve PTX bioavailability and sustain its release.

Pentoxifylline (PF), known to increase red blood cell (RBC) deformability, has recently attracted much attention because of its possible effect of reducing capillary resistance. There has been practically no reliable demonstration of an increase in capillary blood flow by this drug. This study was intended to examine the effect of PF and hence deformability changes on microvascular hemodynamics and the rheological mechanisms underlying such an effect. Mesentery microvessels of 15 rats were subjected to intravital microscopic observation under transillumination. Capillary blood flow was measured using a newly developed 2-channel sample-hold scanner incorporated into a video display system. Changes in whole blood viscosity were also measured in order to investigate hemorheological changes. It was found that a significant increase in capillary blood flow (as much as 140%) was brought about by PF administration. The increase in blood flow was particularly remarkable in capillaries of about 13 microns in diameter, while whole blood viscosity measured in vitro showed a reduction of 40% at most. In view of these results and the reported effect of PF on increasing the RBC deformability, increased capillary blood flow can be attributed to the increased RBC deformability.
PTX may have a protective effect on the cardiac myocytes against LPS injury through inhibiting the pathway of NF-KappaB, which regulates the production of ICAM-1.

Neem oil, an extract of a native plant of India, has been demonstrated to have anti-fertility, anti-implantation, and abortifacient properties. An active fraction, termed NIM-76, was extracted that eliminates its abortifacient properties while retaining spermicidal activity. This fraction kills all human sperm in vitro in under 20 seconds at a concentration of 25 mg/ml. With increases in NIM-76 concentrations from 10 to 1000 mcg/ml, there was a linear decrease in percentages of motile as well as progressively motile sperm with time; also recorded were decreases in percentages of rapid, medium, and slow moving sperm, mean track speed, progressive velocity, mean linearity, and lateral head displacement and an increase in the percentage of static sperm. Electron microscopy revealed the formation of pores and vesicles over the sperm head, indicating damage to the cell membrane. Membrane fluidization studies did not reveal any significant change in the fluidity of sperm cell membrane structure. Since calcium supplementation did not relieve the sperm from the spermicidal action, it was determined that NIM-76 does not cause any depletion of intracellular calcium. The capability of NIM-76 to selectively kill sperm without affecting normal cells makes it a highly desirable potential vaginal contraceptive agent.

Proinflammatory cytokine-mediated pancreatic beta-cell dysfunction is a key pathological event in type I diabetes mellitus. Lisofylline (LSF), an anti-inflammatory agent, has been shown to protect pancreatic islets from IL-1 beta-induced inhibitory effects on insulin release. However, the mechanism of LSF action is not known. Increasing evidence suggests that the mitochondria play an important role in regulating the beta-cell insulin release capacity and the control of cellular viability. To examine the direct effects of LSF on beta-cells, insulin-secreting INS-1 cells were exposed to a combination of recombinant IL-1 beta, TNF alpha, and IFN gamma with or without LSF for 18 h. Basal and glucose-stimulated static insulin release were measured using RIA. INS-1 cell viability was determined using in situ terminal deoxynucleotidyltransferase-mediated dUTP nick end labeling and LIVE/DEAD dual fluorescence labeling. To evaluate INS-1 mitochondrial function, 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) metabolism, change in mitochondrial membrane potential, and intracellular ATP levels were assessed. Cytokine addition reduced basal (7.8 +/- 0.30 vs. 10.0 +/- 0.46 ng/ml.h; P < 0.005), glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (11.6 +/- 0.86 vs. 17.4 +/- 1.86 ng/ml.h; P < 0.005), and MTT metabolism in INS-1 cells. Over 40% of the cytokine-treated beta-cells exhibited nuclear DNA breakage, whereas the control cell death rate remained at 1-2%. Simultaneous application of LSF and cytokines to INS-1 cells restored insulin secretion, MTT metabolism, mitochondrial membrane potential, and cell viability to control levels. LSF increased beta-cell MTT metabolism as well as insulin release and glucose responsiveness. In summary, proinflammatory cytokines lead to a reduction of glucose-induced insulin secretion, mitochondrial activity, and viability in INS-1 cells. LSF at concentrations achievable in vivo protected beta-cells from the cytokine effects. The mechanism of LSF-induced protection may be by promoting mitochondrial metabolism.

Macrophage-induced lung inflammation contributes substantially to respiratory failure during Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia. We isolated a P. carinii cell wall fraction rich in glucan carbohydrate, which potently induces TNF-alpha and macrophage-inflammatory protein-2 generation from alveolar macrophages. Instillation of this purified P. carinii carbohydrate cell wall fraction into healthy rodents is accompanied by substantial increases in whole lung TNF-alpha generation and is associated with neutrophilic infiltration of the lungs. Digestion of the P. carinii cell wall isolate with zymolyase, a preparation containing predominantly beta-1,3 glucanase, substantially reduces the ability of this P. carinii cell wall fraction to activate alveolar macrophages, thus suggesting that beta-glucan components of the P. carinii cell wall largely mediate TNF-alpha release. Furthermore, the soluble carbohydrate beta-glucan receptor antagonists laminariheptaose and laminarin also substantially reduce the ability of the P. carinii cell wall isolate to stimulate macrophage-inflammatory activation. In contrast, soluble alpha-mannan, a preparation that antagonizes macrophage mannose receptors, had minimal effect on TNF-alpha release induced by the P. carinii cell wall fraction. P. carinii beta-glucan-induced TNF-alpha release from alveolar macrophages was also inhibited by both dexamethasone and pentoxifylline, two pharmacological agents with potential activity in controlling P. carinii-induced lung inflammation. These data demonstrate that P. carinii beta-glucan cell wall components can directly stimulate alveolar macrophages to release proinflammatory cytokines mainly through interaction with cognate beta-glucan receptors on the phagocyte.

Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and interleukin (IL)-6 concentrations were measured by radioimmunoassays; IL-8 concentrations by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and pentoxifylline concentrations by high-performance liquid chromatography at 0, 3, 6, 12, 18, 24 and 48 hrs after study entry. Pulmonary artery catheter-derived hemodynamics were measured at 0, 0.75, 3, 6, 12, 18, and 24 hrs. In pentoxifylline-treated patients, at 24 hrs, serum concentrations of TNF were significantly lower compared with controls (12 +/- 2 vs. 42 +/- 12 pg/mL, respectively, p = .04). Serum concentrations of IL-6 and IL-8 did not differ between the two treatment groups. There were also no significant differences in any hemodynamic and oxygenation measurements comparing the two treatment groups. Pentoxifylline concentrations were 1,544 +/- 241 ng/mL after the initial dose, and 5,776 +/- 1,781 ng/mL at the end of the 24-hr infusion. Five patients in the pentoxifylline group and four patients in the placebo group died.
Few treatments exist for managing RIF of soft tissues. Due to its antioxidant properties, vitamin E may reduce the oxidative damage induced by radiation. The precise mechanism of action for pentoxifylline in management of RIF remains unclear. Uncontrolled studies evaluating vitamin E or pentoxifylline as monotherapy in RIF have shown modest improvement in clinical regression of fibrosis. However, controlled data are needed to verify these benefits. Studies involving pentoxifylline plus vitamin E demonstrated regression in RIF. The combination was more effective than placebo and may be superior to monotherapy with either agent. Adverse effects were rarely reported in the studies and consisted mainly of gastrointestinal and nervous system effects.
