Sample text

Preliminary studies with MISO given orally in single doses of 1-4 g to normal human volunteers did not indicate any toxic side effects [135]. However, the Phase IIII studies have reported contraindicative side effects such as convulsions at high doses and peripheral sensory polyneuropathies in cancer patients receiving lower multiple doses of MISO [55, 57, 60-62, 65-67, 125, 126, 130, 132]. The most troublesome toxic manifestation of MISO neurotoxicity is peripheral sensory polyneuropathy of the hands and feet with mild to moderate paresthesias and loss of vibration sensitivity.

Possible metabolic pathways for nitro-heterocyclic compounds such as many radiation sensitizers. Under hypoxic conditions nitroreductases catalyse the reduction of the nitro group. The probable metabolic pathways under oxic or hypoxic conditions are outlined in Figure 5. Hypoxic cell cytotoxicity probably requires the action of nitro-reductases which are inhibited by the presence of oxygen. Under oxygenated conditions very reactive superoxide radicals as well as other toxic substances will be produced when very high concentrations of drugs are used over long exposure periods [82-86].
