Oseltamivir Effective in Critically Ill Patients With Influenza A/H3N2

Oseltamivir should be administered to treat critically ill individuals with influenza, particularly when A/H3N2 is circulating, according to a study published in Clinical Infectious Disorders. Oseltamivir is particularly effective against this subtype but does not provide equal efficacy across all strains of influenza.

This study included 1330 participants treated for influenza in hospital intensive care units (ICUs). Participants were all ≥18 years old, were given mechanical ventilation, and were given oseltamivir alone. The primary outcome was mortality in the ICU vs live discharge. Log-binomial models were used to examine the correlation between early oseltamivir use and mortality, and death/discharge subdistribution and cause-specific hazards were estimated using competing risks. In calculating effect estimates, adjustments were made for time between symptom onset and ICU admission, comorbidities, seasonal vaccination for influenza, type of influenza (A/H1N1, A/H3N2, or B), sex, and age group.

Of the 1330 individuals in the ICU for influenza, 46.8% (n=622) died in treatment. Those with influenza subtype A/H3N2 had significantly lower rates of mortality when given early treatment with oseltamivir (relative risk, 0.69; 95% CI, 0.49-0.94), which was attributable to an unchanging cause-specific mortality hazard and a higher cause-specific discharge hazard. Participants given oseltamivir early also had a lower mortality rate than those given oseltamivir late (33.7% vs 48.4%; P =.029), as well as a shorter median length of ICU stay (12 days vs 15 days; P =.003). Individuals who survived had a shorter median ICU length of stay by 1.8 days (95% CI, 0.5-3.5 days). Influenza B and A/H1N1 mortality did not demonstrated an association with early oseltamivir use.

Limitations to this study included a lack of available data on oseltamivir treatment duration and dosage, a lack of analysis on safety outcomes, and an observational study design.

About Polymer PEG and Monodisperse PEG

Polymer PEG Derivatives has been used in medicine, materials, chemical and other fields.

At present, most of the polyethylene glycol compounds supplied on the market are polymers formed by the polymerization of ethylene glycol. The molecular weight of polymer PEG compounds is uncertain, and distributed in a certain range. It will be difficult to quantify the modified compounds in practice because of  disperse molecular weight. In addition, it is very difficult to separate and purify polyethylene glycol compounds because of their similar structure, so it is particularly important to design a synthesis method of monodisperse polyethylene glycol(PEG) derivatives.
Monodisperse polyethylene glycol(PEG) molecular weight is fixed. It can not be obtained by polymerization. It must be by the appropriate reaction of the basic polyethylene glycol fragment.
At present, the monodisperse custom synthesis PEG is difficult, the literature is less reported and poor, and the price of monodisperse polyethylene glycol sold on the market is also expensive. For the above reasons, an economical and efficient monodisperse polyethylene glycol synthesis method need to be designed, which can provide with higher quality and lower price.

New breakthroughs in click chemistry series product

1. A heterobifunctional peg bioorthogonal linker with azide (click reaction) and amine reactivity 

The advent of bioorthogonal chemical biology tools for imaging and tracking of biomolecules (proteins, lipids, glycans) in their native environment is providing unique insights into cellular processes that are not achievable with traditional biochemical or molecular biology tools. However, the use of copper in traditional click labeling chemistry limits its application in chemistry biology research wherein oligonucleotide or polysaccharide involved could be degraded by copper. The advancement of metal-free bioorthogonal cycloaddtions between strain-promoted alkyne, so called cyclooctynes, with azide (SPAAC), tetrazines or nitrones (SPANC) could solve this issue. Among the cyclooctyned invented, bicyclo[6.1.0]nonyne (BCN) featuring Cs symmetry displays excellent cycloaddition reaction kinetics.

Biocompatible – click reaction occurs efficiently under mild buffer conditions; requires no accessory reagents such as a copper catalyst or reducing agents (e.g. DTT)

Chemoselective – azides and BCN groups do not react or interfere with other functional groups found in biological samples but conjugate to one another with high efficiency.

Amine reactivity – modify amine-containing molecules or biomolecules with BCN moiety for subsequent conjugation/labelling with azide counterpart.

2. Copper-free click click reagents is a bioorthogonal reaction developed as an activated variant of an azide alkyne Huisgen cycloaddition. Cu-free click chemistry has been modified to be bioorthogonal by eliminating a cytotoxic copper catalyst, allowing reaction to proceed quickly and without live cell toxicity. Although the reaction produces a regioisomeric mixture of triazoles, the lack of regioselectivity in the reaction is not a major concern for its applications in bioorthogonal chemistry. More regiospecific and less bioorthogonal requirements are best served by the traditional Huisgen cycloaddition, especially given the low yield and synthetic difficulty (compared to the addition of a terminal alkyne) of synthesizing a strained cyclooctyne. The incredible bioorthogonality of the reaction has allowed the Cu-free click reaction to be applied within cultured cells, live zebrafish, and mice.

 

Dibenzylcyclooctyne (DBCO) is widely used in the Cu-free click chemistry. DBCO eliminates the use of cytotoxic copper catalyst, and allows reaction to proceed quickly and without live cell toxicity.

This acid functionalized cyclooctyne derivative is useful in strain-promoted copper-free azide-alkyne cycloaddition reactions. This dibenzocyclooctyne will react with azide functionalized compounds or biomolecules without the need for a Cu(I) catalyst to result in a stable triazole linkage.

Biocompatible – click reaction occurs efficiently under mild buffer conditions; requires no accessory reagents such as a copper catalyst or reducing agents (e.g. DTT)

Chemoselective – azides and DBCO groups do not react or interfere with other functional groups found in biological samples but conjugate to one another with high efficiency

Primary amine reactivity – modify amine-containing molecules with DBCO for use in advanced crosslinking experiments.

PEG Hydrogels Applications in Drug Delivery and 3D Cell Culture

Applications of Polyethylene Glycol Hydrogels in Wound Healing and Tissue Regeneration

A major reported use of peg derivatives is for the development of hydrogels. Among the common uses of PEG hydrogels are the use as adhesives for wound closure, as controlled release matrices for therapeutics, for wound healing, as part of medical devices, and as regenerative medicine tools. A biodegradable cytocompatible bioadhesive hydrogel system from on oxidized methacrylated alginate/8-arm polyethylene glycol amine used for culture of human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells. The swelling behavior, degradation profiles, and storage moduli of the hydrogel bioadhesive were adjusted by varying the degree of oxidation of the alginate.

Applications of Polyethylene Glycol Hydrogels in Cell Culture and Tissue Models

PEG and PEG-copolymer hydrogels are practical solutions as scaffolds and have been used for cell culture; for controlled release of therapeutics; and for various other applications, including but not limited to tissue engineering. Larger amounts of ammonia cross linker used in the polymerization of an 8 arm PEG macromere, lead to higher crosslinking density and bulk of hydrogels, an increased surfaceelasticity and, generally, to smoother surface morphologies.
