08/01/1992 - "High performance liquid chromatography and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy measurements of biochemical changes resulting from treatment with N-(phosphonacetyl)-L-aspartate plus 6-methylmercaptopurine riboside plus 6-aminonicotinamide indicated a severe depletion of cellular energy levels in the treated tumors. "
01/01/1994 - "A quadruple drug combination--consisting of a triple-drug combination of N-(phosphonacetyl)-L-aspartate (PALA) + 6-methylmercaptopurine riboside (MMPR) + 6-amino-nicotinamide (6-AN), designed to primarily deplete cellular energy in tumor cells, + Adriamycin (Adria)--yielded significantly enhanced anticancer activity (i.e., tumor regressions) over that produced by either Adria alone at maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or by the triple-drug combination, against large, spontaneous, autochthonous murine breast tumors. "
12/01/1997 - "To evaluate the effects of biochemical modulation by N-(phosphonacetyl)-L-aspartate (PALA), 6-methylmercaptopurine riboside (MMPR), and 6-aminonicotinamide (6AN), (PALA + MMPR + 6AN is referred to as PMA) on tumor radiosensitivity, and evaluate the efficacy of the addition of 5-FU to the PMA + XRT regimen for enhancement of tumor response to radiation without exceeding normal tissue tolerance.
