6. PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES For some PAs and their N-oxides antitumor properties were found. In particular, indicine-N-oxide showed high activity against B16 melanoma, mammary xenograft, M5076 sarcoma, P388 leukemia, and Walker 256 carcinoma (WHO, 1988; Roeder, 1995). In clinical studies, indicine-N-oxide has shown significant activity against some forms of infantile leukemia and solid tumors, with doses limited mainly by myelosuppression and sometimes by hepatotoxicity (doses above 1200 mglkg of body weight).

1997) revealed that larvae of Creatonotos transiens (Lepidoptera, Arctiidae) and Zonocerus variegatus (Orthoptera, Pyrgomorpbidae) ingest 14C-Iabeled senecionine and its N-oxide with the same efficiency but sequester the two tracers exclusively as N-oxide. Larvae of the non-sequestering Spodoptera littoralis eliminate efficiently the ingested alkaloids. During feeding on the two alkaloidal forms transient levels of senecionine (but not of the N-oxide) are built up in the haemolymph of S. littora/is.
