Experiment Eleven: Dark Secrets Behind the Discovery of a Wonder Drug

In 1943, Albert Schatz, a tender Rutgers university Ph. D. scholar, labored on a wartime undertaking in microbiology professor Selman Waksman’s lab, trying to find an antibiotic to struggle infections at the entrance strains and at domestic. In his 11th test on a standard bacterium present in farmyard soil, Schatz stumbled on streptomycin, the 1st powerful medication for tuberculosis, one of many world’s deadliest illnesses.

As director of Schatz’s examine, Waksman took credits for the invention, belittled Schatz’s paintings, and secretly enriched himself with royalties from the streptomycin patent filed through the pharmaceutical corporation Merck. In an extraordinary lawsuit, younger Schatz sued Waksman, and was once presented the identify of “co-discoverer” and a proportion of the royalties. yet years later, Professor Waksman on my own was once offered the Nobel Prize. Schatz disappeared into educational obscurity.

For the 1st time, acclaimed writer and journalist Peter Pringle unravels the intrigues in the back of probably the most vital discoveries within the background of drugs. the tale unfolds on a tiny university campus in New Jersey, yet its repercussions unfold around the world. The streptomycin patent used to be a leap forward for the drug businesses, overturning patent limits on items of nature and paving the way in which for today’s biotech international. As dozens extra antibiotics have been came upon, many from a similar kinfolk as streptomycin, the drug businesses created oligopolies and reaped colossal earnings. Pringle makes use of firsthand debts and documents within the usa and Europe to bare the intensely human tale in the back of the invention that all started a revolution within the remedy of infectious illnesses and formed the way forward for mammoth Pharma.

Sample text

We will use an ISEMF cell line (18Co) isolated from human colon, reporter gene constructs containing full length and mutant COX-2 regulatory elements, gel shift assays, in vitro and in vivo promoter footprinting to determine the role of NF-kappaB/cRel, cEBP/NF-IL6, CREB/ATF, and other transcription factors in the induction and inhibition of COX-2 expression in ISEMF. Key findings from studies with 18Co will be confirmed in primary cultures of ISEMF from normal and various disease states. Using immunohistocytochemistry and in situ hybridization techniques we will identify the cellular sites of COX-2 gene expression in normal and diseased tissue and thus shed light on the role of ISEMF in gastrointestinal disease.

During the one-week follow-up period, and will be asked to score symptoms during the Day 7 follow-up visit. Blood pressure, pulse, and respiratory rate will be recorded. Patients will be fitted with a Holter monitor from prior to initiation of the Test drug infusion through the 24 hour safety assessment. A baseline 12-lead ECG will be performed prior to the start of the Test Drug infusion at 30-45 minutes after completion of the Test Drug infusion, and at the 12-hour evaluation, just prior to patients release from the hospital.

Signaling mechanisms for initiation of apoptosis by corticosteroids will be examined by Western blot, fluorescent assays, and RT-PCR. The use of transfected human airway epithelial cells will determine whether differentiation factors, such as transforming growth factor-beta and cis-retinoic acid, attenuate apoptosis and speed repair. A mouse model will be used to demonstrate the effect of corticosteroid and differentiation factor treatment on epithelial cell apoptosis, repair and integrity in vivo.
