DCA is a mitochondrial pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase (PDK) inhibitor that shifts pyruvate metabolism from glycolysis and lactate production to glucose oxidation in the mitochondria. DCA also induces apoptosis and reverses the KV1.5 channels downregulation in cancer.

1.Inhibition of Growth of Bladder Cancer Cells by 3-(3-Pyridinyl)-1-(4-pyridinyl)-2-propen-1-one in Combination with Other Compounds Affecting Glucose Metabolism.
Lea MA1, Altayyar M2, desBordes C3. Anticancer Res. 2015 Nov;35(11):5889-99.
In seven out of eight human bladder cell lines that were examined herein, growth was more dependent on the presence in the incubation medium of glucose rather than glutamine. The exception was the slowly growing RT4 cells that were more glutamine-dependent. Growth of all the cell lines was reduced by an inhibitor of 6-phosphofructo-2-kinase/2,6-bisphosphatase 3, namely 3-(3-pyridinyl)-1-(4-pyridinyl)-2-propen-1-one (3PO). Growth was also reduced by three compounds that reduce the conversion of glucose to lactate: namely 2-deoxyglucose, butyrate and dichloroacetate. Additive effects were seen when these molecules were combined with 3PO. Treatment of bladder cancer cells with phenformin resulted in growth inhibition that was frequently accompanied by increased glucose uptake and acidification of the medium that was blocked by co-incubation with 3PO. The actions of 3PO suggest that inhibitors of PFKB3 merit further investigation in the treatment of bladder cancer and they may be useful agents in combination with other drugs that inhibit cancer cell proliferation.

The novel ideas of fundamental role of mitochondria in the maintenance of viability of malignant cells have been reviewed. The modern state of research is considered in detail, including: mitochondrial control of the cellular redox state, sites of reactive oxygen species (ROS) production in inner mitochondrial membrane and antioxidant protection systems. Specificities of the structural-functional mitochondrial remodelling in malignant tumors, the mechanisms of the energy metabolism reprogramming, enhancement of the ROS production and adaptation to the hypoxic conditions and metabolic stress are analyzed. The available data including our research on transplanted tumors indicate that cytotoxic action of sodium dichloroacetate (the inhibitor of pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase) depends on biological properties of tumors and intensity of structural-functional mitochondrial rearrangement. Dichloroacetate turned out to be effective for sarcoma 37, but not for Lewis lung carcinoma.
3.Determination of small halogenated carboxylic acid residues in drug substances by high performance liquid chromatography-diode array detection following derivatization with nitro-substituted phenylhydrazines.
Hou D1, Fan J2, Han L1, Ruan X1, Feng F3, Liu W4, Zheng F5. J Chromatogr A. 2016 Mar 18;1438:46-56. doi: 10.1016/j.chroma.2016.02.002. Epub 2016 Feb 3.
A method for the determination of small halogenated carboxylic acid (HCA) residues in drug substances is urgently needed because of the potential of HCAs for genotoxicity and carcinogenicity in humans. We have now developed a simple method, involving derivatization followed by high performance liquid chromatography-diode array detection (HPLC-DAD), for the determination of six likely residual HCAs (monochloroacetic acid, monobromoacetic acid, dichloroacetic acid, 2-chloropropionic acid, 2-bromopropionic acid and 3-chloropropionic acid) in drug substances. Different nitro-substituted phenylhydrazines (NPHs) derivatization reagents were systematically compared and evaluated. 2-Nitrophenylhydrazine hydrochloride (2-NPH·HCl) was selected as the most suitable choice since its derivatives absorb strongly at 392nm, a region of the spectrum where most drug substances and impurities absorb very weakly. During the derivatization process, the commonly used catalyst, pyridine, caused rapid dechlorination or chlorine substitution of α-halogenated derivatives.
4.Detection of regulated disinfection by-products in cheeses.
Cardador MJ1, Gallego M2, Cabezas L3, Fernández-Salguero J3. Food Chem. 2016 Aug 1;204:306-13. doi: 10.1016/j.foodchem.2016.02.146. Epub 2016 Feb 26.
Cheese can contain regulated disinfection by-products (DBPs), mainly through contact with brine solutions prepared in disinfected water or sanitisers used to clean all contact surfaces, such as processing equipment and tanks. This study has focused on the possible presence of up to 10 trihalomethanes (THMs) and 13 haloacetic acids (HAAs) in a wide range of European cheeses. The study shows that 2 THMs, (in particular trichloromethane) and 3 HAAs (in particular dichloroacetic acid) can be found at μg/kg levels in the 56 cheeses analysed. Of the two types of DBPs, HAAs were generally present at higher concentrations, due to their hydrophilic and non-volatile nature. Despite their different nature (THMs are lipophilic), both of them have an affinity for fatty cheeses, increasing their concentrations as the percentage of water decreased because the DBPs were concentrated in the aqueous phase of the cheeses.
