Metformin is an antidiabetic drug with anticancer properties. Cisplatin is known as one of the most potent chemotherapeutics for treatment of various types of cancer. In order to overcome cisplatin resistance and toxicity, the drug can be combined with other chemotherapeutics that sensitize tumour cells to cisplatin. The ability of metformin to potentiate cisplatin-mediated killing of cancer cells in vitro, makes it a plausible candidate for combination with cisplatin-based therapy. The aim of this study is to examine the combined effect of these drugs on mRNA expression of Hexokinase II gene participating in glycolysis as well as cancer promotion.

Enantioselective formal synthesis of pregabalin with bifunctional acid/base organocatalysts
Kapucu, Merve; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2013)
Pregabalin, which is marketed under the brand name of Lyrica by Pfizer, is an important chiral drug in the treatment of epilepsy and neuropathic pain. Since only S-Pregabalin is active for the treatment, asymmetric synthesis was accomplished in 6 steps and the chiral induction was done by transition metal catalysis in industrial production. In this thesis, we applied an alternative synthetic route taken place in 3 steps. The key step comprised the chiral induction done by organocatalysis and the formal asym...
Raloxifene delivery systems for osteoporosis treatment
Kavas, Ayşegül; Tezcaner, Ayşen; Keskin, Dilek; Department of Engineering Sciences (2014)
One of the osteoporosis drugs, Raloxifene (Ral) is systemically administrated in high dose at frequent intervals, causing high risk of side effects which influence all the body. As a solution to such issues, delivery systems providing controlled and sustained drug release at therapeutic level from a carrier have been studied recently. The aim of this study was to develop Ral- or Ral-poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG)-loaded poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) or PCL:poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) microspheres and to...
Biotransformation of the Fluorinated Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Pharmaceutical Flurbiprofen in Activated Sludge Results in Accumulation of a Recalcitrant Fluorinated Aromatic Metabolite
Yanac, Kadir; Murdoch, Robert Waller (2019-06-01)
Flurbiprofen is a fluorinated, nonsteroidal, anti-inflammatory pharmaceutical with potential application in a wide range of maladies. Currently, there is no information regarding its environmental fate. To address this, flurbiprofen is spiked at 500 and 50 ppm into activated sewage sludge taken from the municipal treatment plant of Ankara, Turkey. Flurbiprofen is partially degraded after 80 days, with removal proportion varying from 33% to 48%. Isolation of organisms able to use flurbiprofen as a sole carbo...

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a main cause of chronic liver disease, leading to liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The objective of our research was to develop effective agents against viral replication. We have previously identified the hydrazide hydrazone scaffold as a promising hepatitis C virus (HCV) and hepatocelluler inhibitor. Herein we describe the design a number of 2',4'-difluoro-4-hydroxy-N'-(arylmethylidene) biphenyl-3-carbohydrazide (3a-t) as anti-HCV and anticancer agen...
