01/01/1992 - "Another analogue of N-acetylmuramyl-D-isoglutamine (MDP), N alpha-acetylmuramyl-L-alanyl-D-isoglutaminyl-N epsilon-stearoyl-L-lysine [MDP-Lys(L18)], which has been shown to enhance non-specific protective activity against bacterial and viral infections, however, showed no adjuvant activity in the present system. "
12/01/1985 - "The efficacy of N-acetylmuramyl-L-alanyl-D-isoglutamine (MDP), 6-O-stearoyl-MDP (L18-MDP), N alpha-acetylmuramyl-L-alanyl-D-isoglutaminyl-N epsilon-stearoyl-L-lysine (MDP-Lys-L18) and N-stearoylmuramyl-L-alanyl-D-isoglutamine (2N-L18-MDP) for augmenting host-resistance to viral infection was examined in Sendai virus infected mice. "
01/01/1989 - "Immunostimulatory effects of 1-O-acylated derivatives of N-acetyl-muramyl-L-alanyl-D-isoglutamine (MDP) methyl ester, with or without the 6-O-phosphoryl group, on augmentation of IgG antibody response against influenza hemagglutinin (HA) vaccine, in vivo macrophage activation and enhancement of non-specific host resistance against Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection were investigated. "
05/01/1981 - "The experimental system utilized in investigating the correlation between the chemical structures of muramyl peptides and their protective activities in the sepsis type of systemic infections caused by Escherichia coli was applied in evaluating the enhancement of resistance to infection induced by 32 synthetic glycopeptide analogs, including 6-O-acyl derivatives and 1-alpha-O-benzyl derivatives of muramyl dipeptide (N-acetyl muramyl-L-alanyl-D-isoglutamine).

"
06/01/2014 - "Cancer tissue contained significantly increased levels of lactate (P < 0.005), taurine (P < 0.005), and isoglutamine (P < 0.005) and decreased levels of lipids/triglycerides (P < 0.005) relative to healthy mucosa (R2Y = 0.94; Q2Y = 0.72; area under the curve, 0.98). "
08/01/1989 - "Liposomes' uses in cancer therapy include encapsulation of known antineoplastic agents such as doxorubicin and methotrexate, delivery of immune modulators such as N-acetylmuramyl-L-alanine-D-isoglutamine, and encapsulation of new chemical entities that are synthesized with lipophilic segments tailored for insertion into lipid bilayers.
