A chemical investigation of the 80% EtOH extract of the aerial plant of Alstonia rupestris afforded four new monoterpenoid indole alkaloids, 6,7-epoxy-8-oxo-vincadifformine (1), 11-acetyl-6,7-epoxy-8-oxo-vincadifformine (2), 11-hydroxy-14-chloro-15-hydroxy-vincadifformine (3), and perakine N 1,N4-dioxide (4), together with two known compounds, 11-hydroxy-6,7-epoxy-8-oxovincadifformine (5) and vinorine N1,N 4-dioxide (6). Structural elucidation of all the compounds was performed by spectral methods such as 1D- and 2D-NMR, IR, UV, and HRESIMS. Alkaloids 1, 2 and 5 showed significant cytotoxicities against all the tested tumor cell lines of the head and neck squamous cell carcinoma with IC 50 value less than 20 μM and antimicrobial activities against two fungi (Alternaria alternata and Phytophthora capsici). Alkaloids 4 and 6 exhibited the activity against bacterium Staphylococcus aureus. © 2014 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

Three new dibenzocyclooctadiene lignans, kadusurain A-C (1-3), together with two known compounds kadsuphilin A (4) and B (5), were isolated from an EtOAc fraction of the 80 % acetone extract of Kadsuracoccinea (Lem.) A. C. Smith. Their structures were established by 1D and 2D NMR techniques, and mass spectroscopy. Anti-proliferative effect of isolated compounds was evaluated against four human tumor cell lines (A549, HCT116, HL-60, and HepG2), and it was found that compound 1 exhibited significant antiproliferative effects with IC50 values ranging from 1.05 to 12.56 μg/ml. © 2013 The Pharmaceutical Society of Korea.

Phytochemical investigation of the ethanol extract of the bulbs of Lycoris caldwellii afforded four new alkaloids, (+)-N-methoxylcarbonyl-nandigerine (1), (+)-N-methoxycarbonyl-lindcarpine (2), (+)-10-O-methylhernovine N-oxide (3), and (+)-3-hydroxy-anhydrolycorine N-oxide (4). Structural elucidation of all the compounds were performed by spectral methods such as 1D and 2D ( 1H-1H COSY, HMQC, and HMBC) NMR spectroscopy, in addition to high resolution mass spectrometry. All the alkaloids were in vitro evaluated for their cytotoxic activities against eight tumor cell lines (BEN-MEN-1, CCF-STTG1, CHG-5, SHG-44, U251, BGC-823, HepG2, and SK-OV-3). Alkaloids 1 and 2 exhibited particular cytotoxic activities against astrocytoma and glioma cell lines with IC50 of 9.2-11.3 μM and 10.4-12.2 μM respectively. © 2013 The Pharmaceutical Society of Korea.

A phytochemical investigation of the ethanol extract of Toona sinensis (A. Juss.) Roem resulted in the isolation of ten new limonoids, toonasinenines A-J (1-10), together with two known compounds, toonafolin (11) and toonacilianin D (12). Their structures were determined by spectroscopic analyses. The isolated components were evaluated in vitro for radical scavenging potential using ABTS+ and DPPH test, anti-inflammatory activities for Cox-1 and Cox-2, and cytotoxicies against nine tumour cell lines (A549, BGC-823, CHG-5, HCT15, HeLa, HepG2, MDA-MB-231, SHG-44 and SGC-7901 cells). As a result, 4, 5 and 7-10 showed potent radical scavenging activities, while limonoids 1-4 and 11 exhibited significant anti-inflammatory and cytotoxic potential. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.

The study aimed to identify clinico-pathologic factors that predict survival in early hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients with hepatitis B virus (HBV)-related cirrhosis undergoing liver resection.A population-based cohort was investigated to identify cirrhotic patients with confirmed early HCC (tumor size5cm and absence of nodal involvement, metastases, or major vascular invasion) after hepatic resection at the Eastern Hepatobiliary Surgery Hospital (Shanghai, China) from April 2005 and November 2010 using the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database. These patients were studied retrospectively in terms of their clinical characteristics and prognostic factors. Predictors for survival were evaluated using Kaplan-Meier methods and Cox proportional hazards models. Besides, a simple prognostic scoring system was proposed to stratify these patients.Of 537 (2.6% of all HCC patients in this period) cirrhotic patients with early HCC identified who had underwent liver resection, 87% were male. Median tumor size was 2.9cm, and 67% of patients had tumors>2cm. Following hepatic resection, overall median and 5-year survival were 75 months and 58%, respectively. Tumor size>2cm (hazard ratio [HR]=1.56), multifocality (HR=1.34), non-anatomic resection (HR=1.44) and vascular invasion (HR=2.03) were associated with worse prognosis (P<0.05). Moreover, these patients could be further stratified into 4 distinct prognostic groups based on the prognostic scoring system developed.Tumor size>2cm, multifocality, non-anatomic resection and vascular invasion may be used to stratify HBV-related cirrhotic patients with early HCC after resection. Besides, these data also indicate that pathologic staging is important even in small HCC.

A chemical investigation of the ethanol extract of the aerial parts of Melodinus fusiformis led to the isolation of six new melodinus-type alkaloids, melofusines A-E (1-6), along with one known compound, melodinine B. Structural elucidation of all the compounds was performed by spectral methods such as 1D and 2D NMR, IR, UV and HRESIMS. The isolated compounds were tested in vitro for cytotoxic potential against six tumor cell lines (Hep-2, SCL-1, CAL-27, UMSCC-1, Detroit-562 and TCA-83). As a result, compound 1 exhibited significant cytotoxic activities against all tested tumor cell lines with IC

All the alkaloids were in vitro evaluated for their cytotoxic activities against seven tumor cell lines of the head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and anti-inflammatory activities. Compounds 1, 2, 6, and 7 exhibited significant cytotoxicities against all the tested cell lines. Moreover, alkaloids 1, 2, and 7 possessed selective inhibition of Cox-2 (> 85%). © 2014 Published by Elsevier B.V.

Four new tirucallane triterpenoids 1-4 along with two known compounds 5 and 6 were isolated from the stem bark of Dysoxylum binectariferum. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of extensive 1D and 2D NMR (COSY, HMQC, HMBC and NOESY) analyses. The isolated compounds were evaluated in vitro for anti-inflammatory and cytotoxic potential against eight tumor cell lines. Compounds 1-6 exhibited significant selective inhibition of Cox-1 and selectively significant cytotoxic against five tumor cell lines (A-549, HCT15, HepG2, SGC-7901 and SK-MEL-2), especially against HepG2 cell lines with IC50 value of 7.5-9.5 μM. © 2014 Published by Elsevier B.V.
