    • Allergic contact dermatitis is a complex syndrome representing immunological responses to cutaneous exposure to protein-reactive chemicals. Although many contact sensitizers directly can elicit this disorder, others (prohaptens) require activation. Knowledge regarding the activating mechanisms remains limited, but one possibility is metabolic activation by cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes in the skin. We have, after quantitative reverse transcriptase-PCR studies of the CYP content in 18 human skin samples, developed an enriched skin-like recombinant human (rh) CYP cocktail using CYP1A1, 1B1, 2B6, 2E1, and 3A5. To validate the rhCYP cocktail, a prohaptenic conjugated diene ((5R)-5-isopropenyl-2-methyl-1-methylene-2-cyclohexene) was investigated using: the skin-like rhCYP cocktail, a liver-like rhCYP cocktail, single rhCYP enzymes, liver microsomes, keratinocytes, and a dendritic cell (DC) assay. The diene was activated to sensitizing epoxides in all non-cell-based incubations including the skin-like rhCYP cocktail. An exocyclic epoxide metabolite ((7R)-7-isopropenyl-4-methyl-1-oxaspiro[2.5]oct-4-ene) was found to be mainly responsible for the allergenic activity of the diene. This epoxide also induced pronounced DC activation indicated by upregulation of IL-8. The skin-like rhCYP cocktail provides a simplified alternative to using skin tissue preparations in mechanistic studies of CYP-mediated skin metabolism of prohaptens and offers the future possibility of designing in vitro predictive assays for assessment of allergenic activity of prohaptens.

  • Conjugated dienes as prohaptens in contact allergy: in vivo and in vitro studies of structure-activity relationships, sensitizing capacity, and metabolic activation.

    • There is a great interest in developing in vitro/in silico methods for the prediction of contact allergenic activity. However, many proposed methods do not take the activation of prohaptens to sensitizers by skin metabolism into account. As a consequence, consumer products containing potent sensitizers could be marketed. To identify prohaptens, studies regarding their structure-activity relationships and the mechanisms of their activation must be conducted. In the present investigation, we have studied the structure-activity relationships for alkene prohaptens. A series of seven alkenes (1-7), all of the same basic structure but with variation in the number and position(s) of the double bond(s), were designed and screened for sensitizing capacity using the murine local lymph node assay. Compounds 1-7 were also incubated with liver microsomes in the presence of glutathione to trap and identify reactive metabolites. The metabolic conversion of three alkenes (9-11) to epoxides (12-15) was also studied along with comparison of their sensitizing capacity. Our results show that conjugated dienes in or in conjunction with a six-membered ring are prohaptens that can be metabolically activated to epoxides and conjugated with GSH. Related alkenes containing isolated double bonds and an acyclic conjugated diene were shown to be weak or nonsensitizers. For the first time, the naturally occurring monoterpenes alpha-phellandrene, beta-phellandrene, and alpha-terpinene were demonstrated to be prohaptens able to induce contact allergy. The difference in sensitizing capacity of conjugated dienes as compared to alkenes with isolated double bonds was found to be due to the high reactivity and sensitizing capacity of the allylic epoxides metabolically formed from conjugated dienes. We recommend that these structure-activity relationship rules are incorporated into in silico predictive databases and propose that the prediction of contact allergenic activity of suspected prohaptens is based on assessment of susceptibility to metabolic activation and chemical reactivity of potential metabolites.

    • People who inject drugs (PWID) are exposed to serious health risks such as lethal overdoses, addiction and infections. The patterns of drug use and the prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection vary greatly between and even within countries. Data on drugs used for injection are important to inform PWID of risks and adapt healthcare. This study aimed to determine which substances are injected in Gothenburg, Sweden, and estimate the risk of HCV transmission. A total of 150 syringes handed in at the needle and syringe exchange program (NEP) in Gothenburg over a week in November 2021 were analysed for drug content using liquid chromatography coupled with high-resolution mass spectrometry. Using a dose-adjusted comparison, the main drug(s) injected was distinguished from the impurities in the syringes containing several drugs. HCV RNA was quantified by real-time PCR in an additional set of 150 syringes. Drugs were detected in >99% of analysed syringes, and the most common drugs were amphetamine (81%), followed by buprenorphine (8.0%), heroin (6.7%) and alprazolam (4.6%). Less common findings were testosterone (2.7%), methylphenidate (2.0%), MDMA (0.7%), trenbolone (0.7%) and zopiclone (0.7%). Eleven syringes (7.3%) contained more than one drug. HCV RNA was detected in 13% of the syringes, and one in 10 contained enough to potentially transmit an infection. This study underlines the importance of access to NEPs for PWID to reduce the risks associated with drug injection.

  • Metabolic epoxidation of an alpha,beta-unsaturated oxime generates sensitizers of extreme potency. Are nitroso intermediates responsible?
  • 2007

    • Metabolic activation of inherently nonprotein-reactive compounds (prohaptens) in the skin can lead to development of contact allergy, a chronic skin disease. The prohapten hypothesis has existed for more than 20 years; yet, detailed knowledge regarding the mechanisms of activation as well as what structural moieties can be transformed to protein-reactive sensitizers is still limited. Today, the consideration of cutaneous bioactivation is important when developing nonanimal-based assays for prediction of contact allergenic activity, as only methods that include skin metabolism are able to detect prohaptens as sensitizers. We have studied the mechanism of activation of the prohapten carvoxime (1), a strongly sensitizing but in itself poorly protein-reactive alpha,beta-unsaturated oxime. alpha,beta-Unsaturated oximes represent a novel class of prohaptens, which previously have never been investigated for potential metabolic activation. To identify reactive metabolites formed from (1), liver microsomal incubations in the presence of glutathione were carried out. Putative reactive metabolites were synthesized, and their allergenic activity, chemical reactivity toward nucleophiles, and ability to elicit a contact allergenic response in animals induced with 1 were assessed. We found that 1 is metabolically activated by epoxidation of the allylic carbon-carbon double bond. The alpha,beta-epoxy oxime metabolites were found to be sensitizers of extreme potency in the local lymph node assay and highly reactive toward nucleophilic amino acids and a model peptide. One of the two diastereomeric epoxy metabolites also elicited an allergic reaction in mice sensitized to 1, in the mouse ear swelling test. Furthermore, this study presents strong indications that the basis of the high reactivity and sensitizing capacity observed for the alpha,beta-unsaturated oximes is related to their ability to form highly reactive nitroso intermediates by tautomerization. To our knowledge, the formation of nitrosoalkenes by oxidative metabolism of alpha,beta-unsaturated oximes has not been shown so far.

  • Oximes: Metabolic Activation and Structure−Allergenic Activity Relationships
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Journal of Medicinal Chemistry. - : American Chemical Society (ACS). - 0022-2623 .- 1520-4804. ; 51:8, s. 2541-2550

    • Metabolic activation of chemicals (prohaptens) in the skin can cause allergic contact dermatitis. We have explored structure−allergenic activity relationships for seven potential oxime prohaptens using the local lymph node assay and a GSH trapping screen with liver microsomes. The general structure−allergenic activity relationships found were that an α,β-unsaturation is necessary for an oxime to be a prohapten and that increased steric hindrance around this double bond leads to reduction in sensitizing capacity. We also found that sensitizing oximes can be distinguished in vitro from nonsensitizers by monitoring of mono-oxidized (+16 Da) GSH conjugates in the GSH trapping screen. However, care should be taken when interpreting data from GSH trapping screens, as nonsensitizers may also form GSH conjugates via alternative mechanisms. This investigation emphasizes the importance of considering cutaneous bioactivation in toxicity assessment of chemicals used in contact with the skin.

  • Rethinking Drug Analysis in Health Care: High-Throughput Analysis of 71 Drugs of Abuse in Oral Fluid Using Ion Mobility-High-Resolution Mass Spectrometry
  • 2022
  • Ingår i: Journal of Analytical Toxicology. - : Oxford University Press (OUP). - 0146-4760 .- 1945-2403. ; 46:7, s. 765-775

    • We have identified a clinical need for a sensitive, specific, flexible, comprehensive and affordable analytical technology to efficiently detect polydrug use. In addition, the current standard practice of surveilled urine sampling is uncomfortable for the patient; hence, more patient-friendly sample collection methods are requested. To fill these needs, we have developed and validated a high-throughput liquid chromatography-high-resolution mass spectrometry (LC-HRMS) method for the analysis of drugs of abuse (DoA) in oral fluid (OF). The method covers a panel of 71 substances including traditional DoA, prescription narcotics and new psychoactive substances (NPS), with a guaranteed limit of identification of <3 mu g/L for 87% of the analytes. Method validation showed high accuracy (>99.7%), sensitivity (>99.7%) and specificity (100%). Most analytes had a high process efficiency during the salting-out liquid-liquid extraction sample preparation and no or only a minor matrix effect during the analysis. We have implemented this method in clinical routine and present data from 18,579 OF samples collected during routine patient treatment in mainly psychiatric and addiction clinics in West Sweden between September 2020 and June 2021. Seventy-one percent of the samples were positive and a total of 41,472 DoA findings were detected. Amphetamine (27%), buprenorphine (25%), nordiazepam (18%) and alprazolam (16%) were most prevalent. New psychoactive substances were detected in 189 samples (1.0%). The occurrence of polydrug use was common; 34% of the positive samples contained three analytes or more and 12% six or more. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first method for comprehensive analysis of DoA in OF using LC-HRMS and the largest dataset published on the detection of DoA in OF. With the current complex and variable drug use pattern, this broad, cost-effective and reliable method has largely replaced immunoassay screening in urine in our laboratory.

    • New psychoactive substances (NPS) are life threatening through unpredictable toxicity and limited analytical options for clinicians. We present the retrospective identification of NPS in raw data from a liquid chromatography-high resolution mass spectrometry (LC-HRMS)-based multidrug panel analysis on 14 367 clinical oral fluid samples requested during 2019 mainly by psychiatric and addiction care clinics. Retrospectively analysed NPS included 48 notified originally in 2019 by the European Union Early Warning System (EU EWS) and 28 frequently reported in Sweden. Of 88 included NPS, 34 (mitragynine, flualprazolam, 3F/4F-α-P(i)HP, etizolam, 4F-MDMB-BINACA, cyproheptadine, 5F-MDMB-PICA, isotonitazene, isohexedrone, MDPEP, N-ethylpentedrone, tianeptine, flubromazolam, 4′-methylhexedrone, α-P(i)HP, eutylone, mephedrone, N-ethylhexedrone, 5F-MDMB-PINACA, ADB-BUTINACA, 3-methoxy PCP, 4F-furanylfentanyl, 4F-isobuturylfentanyl, acrylfentanyl, furanylfentanyl, clonazolam, norfludiazepam, 3F-phenmetrazine, 3-MMC, 4-methylpentedrone, BMDP, ethylphenidate, methylone and α-PVP) were identified as 219 findings in 84 patients. Eight NPS notified in 2019 were identified, five before EWS release. NPS occurred in 1.20% of all samples and 1.53% of samples containing traditional drugs, and in 1.87% of all patients and 2.88% of patients using traditional drugs. NPS use was more common in men and polydrug users. Legal (not scheduled) NPS were more used than comparable illegal ones. Retrospective identification could be useful when prioritizing NPS for clinical routine analysis and when studying NPS epidemiology. © 2022 Nordic Association for the Publication of BCPT (former Nordic Pharmacological Society).

  • N, N-dimethyltryptamine forms oxygenated metabolites via CYP2D6-an in vitro investigation
  • 2023
  • Ingår i: Xenobiotica. - 0049-8254. ; 53:8-9, s. 515-522

    • N, N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT) is a psychedelic compound that has shown potential in the treatment of depression. Aside from the primary role of monoamine oxidase A (MAO-A) in DMT metabolism, the metabolic pathways are poorly understood. Increasing this understanding is an essential aspect of ensuring safe and efficacious use of DMT. This work aimed to investigate the cytochrome 450 (CYP) mediated metabolism of DMT by incubating DMT with recombinant human CYP enzymes and human liver microsomes (HLM) followed by analysis using high-resolution mass spectrometry for metabolite identification.DMT was rapidly metabolised by CYP2D6, while stable with all other investigated CYP enzymes. The metabolism of DMT in HLM was reduced after inclusion of harmine and SKF-525A whereas quinidine did not affect the metabolic rate, likely due to MAO-A residues present in HLM. Analysis of the CYP2D6 incubates showed formation of mono-, di- and tri-oxygenated metabolites, likely as a result of hydroxylation on the indole core. More research is needed to investigate the role of this metabolic pathway in vivo and any pharmacological activity of the proposed metabolites. Our findings may impact on safety issues following intake of ayahuasca in slow CYP2D6 metabolizers or with concomitant use of CYP2D6 inhibitors.

  • Allergic Contact Dermatitis––Formation, Structural Requirements, and Reactivity of Skin Sensitizers
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Chem. Res. Toxicol.. - : American Chemical Society (ACS). ; 21:1, s. 53-69
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Contact allergy is caused by a wide range of chemicals after skin contact. Its clinical manifestation, allergic contact dermatitis (ACD), is developed upon repeated contact with the allergen. This perspective focuses on two areas that have yielded new useful information during the last 20 years: (i) structure–activity relationship (SAR) studies of contact allergy based on the concept of hapten-protein binding and (ii) mechanistic investigations regarding activation of nonsensitizing compounds to contact allergens by air oxidation or skin metabolism. The second area is more thoroughly reviewed since the full picture has previously not been published. Prediction of the sensitizing capacity of a chemical is important to avoid outbreaks of ACD in the population. Much research has been devoted to the development of in vitro and in silico predictive testing methods. Today, no method exists that is sensitive enough to detect weak allergens and that is robust enough to be used for routine screening. To cause sensitization, a chemical must bind to macromolecules (proteins) in the skin. Expert systems containing information about the relationship between the chemical structure and the ability of chemicals to haptenate proteins are available. However, few designed SAR studies based on mechanistic investigations of prohaptens have been published. Many compounds are not allergenic themselves but are activated in the skin (e.g., metabolically) or before skin contact (e.g., via air oxidation) to form skin sensitizers. Thus, more basic research is needed on the chemical reactions involved in the antigen formation and the immunological mechanisms. The clinical importance of air oxidation to activate nonallergenic compounds has been demonstrated. Oxidized fragrance terpenes, in contrast to the pure terpenes, gave positive patch test reactions in consecutive dermatitis patients as frequently as the most common standard allergens. This shows the importance of using compounds to which people are exposed when screening for ACD in dermatology clinics.
