1st Prize to Centre for Nuclear Medicine, PU
Centre for Nuclear Medicine, Panjab University, Chandigarh received the first
prize by the International Medical Olympicus Association during the recently held 5th
International Medical Olympiad in Greece.
The work presented was a part of the CSIR funded project awarded to Dr Vijayta D Chadha
as Principal Investigator and Co investigators, Dr D K Dhawan and Dr Neelima D Passi.
The research involved radiosynthesis of a novel 5α-reductase inhibitor and
evaluation
of its cancer targeting potential in experimental model of prostate carcinogenesis.
Prostate cancer is the second most frequent malignancy after lung cancer in men and the
fifth leading cause of death worldwide. The enzyme 5α-reductase converts
testosterone
to dihydrotestosterone which is more potent agonist of androgen receptor and its
increased levels lead to enlargement of prostate gland. 5α-reductase inhibitors
are a
class of drugs that contain the metabolic transformation of testosterone thus lowering
the manifestation of diseased condition. Considering the 5α-reductase inhibitory
activity of the reported oximes and importance of the ester group in increasing the
antiandrogenic property, a potent 5α-reductase inhibitor was synthesized for
enhanced
selectivity towards prostate tissue. The work was carried by Ms Gousia Jan, Research
fellow in the project and was presented by Prof D K Dhawan in the said conference.
