Constituents isolated from the Aurora globostellata marine sponge showed immunomodulatory potential. Immunocompromised patients are mainly infected by Aspergillus, Cryptococcus, Candida, and other opportunistic fungi. exhibited antibacterial activity against 61% of the coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS) strains, including strains resistant to conventional antibiotics. Sponges (Porifera) are a predominantly marine phylum liv-ing from the intertidal to the abyssal (deepest ocean) zone. However, ara-A is capable of inhibiting a cyclovir-resistant HSV and VZV (varicella-zoster virus) [109]. 2. There are approximately 8500 described species of sponges worldwide with a prominent role in many reef coral communities. Platyhelminthes, better known as flatworms, play important roles in marine, freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems, and several species are dangerous parasites of humans. Many of these have excellent potential for drug development, but no commercial medication has been originated from them so far. Antioxidant activity of (8E,13Z,20Z)-strobilinin/(7E,13Z,20Z)-felixinin from a marine sponge Psammocinia sp. These results indicate the potential of lectin for treating cancer [29]. Thus the possibility of development of new anticancer drugs for curing or reducing cancer is promising. But in the sponge, scientists isolated two chemicals — aptly named spongothymidine and spongouridine — which were used as models for the development of a number of anti-viral and anti-cancer drugs. Sponges also offer some interesting applications to the medical world. It’s based on principles of collaboration, unobstructed discovery, and, most importantly, scientific progression. Marine sponge-derived antibacterial compounds and their effects. Recently, sponge-derived actinomycetes and sediments isolated from marine sponge were tested for bioactive constituents with antifungal and antimicrobial activity. Many of these natural products from sponges have shown a wide range of pharmacological activities such as anticancer, antifungal, antiviral, anthelmintic, antiprotozoal, anti-inflammatory, immunosuppressive, neurosuppressive, and antifouling activities. 1 mm, and moderate activity toward PfPK5, a member of the cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) family [188]. Several sponges have spicules of silicon dioxide or calcium carbonate and a mesh of proteins called spongin as an internal skeleton. The other analogs was either less potent or inactive, and a rationalization for this SAR pattern was also reported [187]. Several studies revealed that many natural bioactive components isolated from various marine sponges can be useful for the production of new antibiotics and antimicrobial drugs. Adociaquinone B and 3-ketoadociaquinone B were the most potent inhibitors of the Cdc25 B phosphatase inhibitory activities, and the dihydro-benzothiazine dioxide in compounds Adociaquinone A, Adociaquinone B, 3-Ketoadociaquinone A, and 3-Ketoadociaquinone B appeared to be an important structural feature for this enhanced activity. Thus the bacterial actinomycetes from marine sponges and other marine organisms have been proved prolific producers of pharmacologically active compounds. exhibited antiparasitic activities. a few chemical substances secreted by sponges have anti-inflammatory, anti-tumoral activities and antibiotic and they are used in the production of medicines, Since ancient times the endoskeleton of some sponges has had commercial value they are used as cleansing implements for baths (bath sponges), to wash animals, objects etc. 2018 Sep 18;18(1):215. doi: 10.1186/s12909-018-1325-9. The sponges or poriferansare animals of the phylum Porifera. Medicine from the Sea From slime to sponges, scientists are plumbing the ocean’s depths for new medications to treat cancer, pain and other ailments Marine sponge-derived compounds showing enzyme-inhibitory activities. "Sponges rely on chemicals to ward off predators, protect reproductive products, avoid being overgrown by neighbours, fight disease or recover from illness or injury," Dr Evans-Illidge says. By Staff Writer Last Updated Apr 14, 2020 2:38:10 AM ET. A number of new alkaloids were isolated from the marine sponge Agelas mauritiana: (+)-2-oxo-agela-sidine C, (−)-8′-oxo-agelasine D,4-bromo-N-(butoxymethyl)-1H-pyrrole-2-carboxamide, ageloxime B, and (−)-ageloxime D and some of these isolated components exhibited antifungal activity against Cryptococcus neoformans, antileishmanial activity in vitro and antibacterial activity against S. aureus and methicillin-resistant S. aureus in vitro [203]. Reports suggest that marine invertebrates represent new marine resources for the isolation of novel agents which are active on inflammatory conditions have also been found in the literature. Around 850 antibiotic constituents are reported from marine sponges [81]. Sponges are multicellular, heterotrophic parazoan organisms, characterized by the possession of unique feeding system among the animals. For this reason marine sponges are the subject of attraction for chemists due to the sheer number of metabolites produced, the novelty of structure encountered, and the therapeutic potential of these compounds in the treatment of human diseases. Anti-inflammatory compounds from marine sponges and their effects. Hirudin substance is extracted from its saliva , It is used in making anticoagulant drugs and in treatment of inflammation of the middle ear . The results showed majority of the tested compounds were active against at least two of the applied test systems [152]. The scientific term for sponges is Porifera meaning “pore-bearing” and has bodies full of pores and channels allowing water to circulate through them, consisting of jelly-like mesohyl sandwiched between two layers of cells [5]. Results revealed that heteronemin affected the various cellular processes such as cell cycle, nitrogen-activated protein kinases pathways, apoptosis, and nuclear factor kappa B signaling cascade. Marine sponge-derived anticancer compounds and their effects. Sponges and compounds from them are certainly being studied in medical research. Antifouling compounds derived from sponges were found to be very effective, environmentally friendly biocides and less toxic [205]. Moreover marine sponges are the important source for vital diverse bioactive constituents including alkaloids, terpenoids, sterols and macrolides. HeadquartersIntechOpen Limited5 Princes Gate Court,London, SW7 2QJ,UNITED KINGDOM. Sponges are in danger – not the ordinary synthetic kind you use to wash dishes in the kitchen sink, but living marine sponges (called Porifera by experts) in the Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea, West Indies, Indian Ocean and elsewhere around the globe. Spongistatin a macrocyclic lactone polyether isolated from Spongia sp. Xestospongic acid ethyl ester (207) was found to inhibit the Na+/K+ ATPase [190]. Several ecological studies reported that high quantity of bioactive constituents produced by sponges often serve defensive against environmental threats such as predation, microbial infection, competition for space or overgrowth by fouling organisms [15, 16]. can contribute the search for novel antibiotics to overcome infections and also for the production of potential immunomodulators [109]. Extracts partially decreased elastase activity and PGE2 levels measured in homogenates from inflamed paws, without affecting the levels of this prostanoid present in stomach homogenates. Although thousands of chemical compounds have been reported in the literature from these sponges, only few of them are clinically described. Traditional medicine in Asia and elsewhere frequently uses marine animals, including dried sponges, corals and jellyfish, shells of crabs, oysters, conch and other mollusks, pearls and cuttlefish ‘bones’, sea cucumbers, sea horses and many other marine animals to prepare powders, ointments and decoctions for many ailments. 5) Ecological and economical importance of Porifera is that it is in all aquatic habitats, microbial sumbionts, and creates habitats for other organisms, sponge beds are also “hotspots” for diversity. Many artificial sponges have been made from synthetic material. The best commercial sponges are found in the warm water ofthe Mediterranean Sea. Several papers reports the screening results of marine organisms for antiviral activity, and a diverse range of active constituents have been isolated and characterized from them [80, 103, 104]. reported to induces cytotoxic, antiproliferetive, antiangiogenic, and antimicrobial activities [26]. We are IntechOpen, the world's leading publisher of Open Access books. As PhD students, we found it difficult to access the research we needed, so we decided to create a new Open Access publisher that levels the playing field for scientists across the world. Within the framework of the European MAST III Project, extracts of different polarity from sponges, ascidians and cnidarians have been screened for immunomodulating activities [157].

They consume food and excrete waste products within cells without a body cavity [14]. In this chapter, we describe main isolated chemical entities from sponges and their pharmacological application. In fact, sponges, sea whips, sea squirts and similar animals are the source of most of the invertebrate-derived medicines in use today. The chemical constituents so far reported for anticancer activity include (Table 1). Various antibacterial substances were identified from marine sponges by continuous efforts of marine natural product community. The spongothymidine and spongouridine nucleosides were the first successful sponge-derived pharmaceutical drugs isolated from Tectitethya crypta [18]. Derivatives of halenaquinone and xestoquinone showed various enzyme inhibitory activities besides the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase and topoisomerase I and II inhibitory activities mentioned above. Bioactive constituents are claimed for potent in vivo or in vitro activity against infectious and parasitic diseases, such as bacterial, fungal, viral and protozoan infections. They are the single richest and most prolific source of marine natural products with human health (i.e. JBIC Journal of Biological Inorganic Chemistry, Immunomodulating Properties of Bioactive Compounds Present in Aurora globostellata. Integrating patient safety education into early medical education utilizing cadaver, sponges, and an inter-professional team. Antifungal compounds isolated from marine sponges are listed in Table 4. Compounds are listed in Table 6. Among these substances, preclinical assessments were started for avarol and manzamine A. Sponges belong to Phylum Porifera and its name derived from the Latin terms Porus which is pores and Ferre for bear. Xestoquinone also showed significant protein kinase inhibitory activity toward Pfnek-1, a serine/threonine malarial kinase, with an IC50 value of ca. One of the remarkable properties of sponges is their ability to suffer damage and regenerative capacity [6, 7, 8]. Herencia and coworkers [156] studied the effects of dichloromethane and methanol extracts from some Mediterranean marine invertebrates on carrageenan-induced paw edema in mice. Scientists working in the field of natural product chemistry and research suggest that these sponges have promising potential to provide future drugs which can serve various diseases. In the early 1987, as esquiterpene aminoquinone, Smenospongine extracted from Smenospongia sp. marine sponge in 1993 was shown to inhibit microtubule assembly, mitosis, and the binding of tubulin to vinblastine thereby inducing cytotoxic cell death in numerous cancer cell lines [27, 28]. Also, over the years marine sponges are considered as a rich source of natural products and metabolites for antibiotics possessing strong inhibitory against bacteria, fungi and microbes. Another marine sponge component, heteronemin a sesterterpene isolated from Hyrtios sp. Medical importance of leech worms. Fungicides which are presently being used are less diverse than antimicrobials, and the usage of many of them is restricted because of their toxic effects to animals, plants and humans. CARLY LAIRD: But Bernie Degnan says the most significant finding of the sequence in relation to human medical research, is to do with the stem cells of sponges. A recent investigation on an Indian marine sponge aimed to isolate and characterize bacteria with immunomodulatory and antimicrobial activity. Renieramycins, members of tetrahydroiso-quinoline family were isolated from marine sponges from genus Reniera with promising anticancer potential. They are the most primitive types of animals in existence, featuring a cell-based organization where different cells have different tasks, but do not form tissues. Perhaps the most important antiviral lead of marine origin reported thus far is the nucleoside ara-A (vidarabine) isolated from the sponge Cryptotethya crypta. are considered as one of the major groups of biological organisms which gave huge number of natural products and secondary metabolites with interesting pharmacological properties and led in the formation of novel drugs. We are a community of more than 103,000 authors and editors from 3,291 institutions spanning 160 countries, including Nobel Prize winners and some of the world’s most-cited researchers. In addition to the unusual nucleosides, other classes of substances such as bioactive terpenes, sterols, fatty acids, alkaloids, cyclic peptides, peroxides, and amino acid derivatives (which are frequently halogenated) have been described from sponges or from their associated microorganisms. 25 Gy. The search for new antiviral substances from marine sources led to the isolation of several promising therapeutic leads which are presented in Table 3. Purpuroines A-J, halogenated alkaloids isolated from Lotrochota purpurea marine sponge showed promising inhibitory activities against bacteria and fungi related diseases [201]. Halichondria okadai has achieved success in phase III clinical trials. Our team is growing all the time, so we’re always on the lookout for smart people who want to help us reshape the world of scientific publishing. Until now, in vitro antitumor activity studies of sponge-derived compounds were tested. Examples of some isolated substances from marine sponges with antibacterial activity are shown in Table 2. © 2018 The Author(s). Literature studies have shown sponge-derived discodermolides antitumor compounds can play remarkable role in future to treat cancer. Antifungal Structure–Activity Relationships, Bioactive Natural Substances from Marine Sponges: New Developments and Prospects for Future Pharmaceuticals, 1-Substituted quinolin-4-one imines with biological activity. Both compounds were found significantly active in suppression of the response of murine splenocytes in the two-way mixed lymphocyte reaction (MLR) with little to no demonstrable cytotoxicity at low doses ([196]. the followings are the uses of sponges. Students were highly satisfied with the seminar with 94% rating the day as good to excellent. By making research easy to access, and puts the academic needs of the researchers before the business interests of publishers. Recently a very important compound named lectin has been isolated from Cinachyrella apion marine sponge was evaluated for antiproliferative, hemolytic, and cytotoxic properties, besides the ability to induce cell death in tumor cells. Zhao et al. Sponges are multicellular, heterotrophic parazoan organisms, characterized by the possession of unique feeding system among the animals. In the recent years, interest in marine sponges has risen considerably due to presence of high number of interesting biologically active natural products. The immunomodulatory potential was evaluated by oral administration of ethyl acetate extract of marine sponge (200 mg/kg) to Wistar rats and the results obtained showed that extracts exhibited immunosuppressant activity and can further be studied [197]. Marine sponges are among the richest sources of interesting chemicals produced by marine organisms. The Importance of Fish and Other Sea Life in Medical Research. About 2036 extracts from 683 individual sponges were examined by using novel in vitro assay led to the identification pure bioactive compounds from many sponges for treating solid tumors. and the mollusk Haminoea fusar is obtained by synthesis, showed very good antifouling potential larvae of the barnacle Amphibalanus amphitrite. A typical example of marine anticancer drugs is eribulinmesylate, a derivative of halichondrin B isolated from the marine sponge. But still, there is much demand for the natural sponge. Sponges have 3000 species around the world. Marine invertebrates (Porifera, Cnidaria, Mollusca, Arthropoda, Echinodermata, etc.) Bromopyrrole or diterpene alkaloids derivatives isolated from Agelas linnaei and Ageles nakamurai Indonesian marine sponges exhibited cytotoxic activity. It was first studied for medical purposes in the 1950s when few scientists or doctors thought to look for medicines in the ocean. strains from Mediterranean sponges and secondary metabolite namely, cyclic depsipeptide valinomycin, indolocarbazole alkaloid staurosporine and butenolide, were screened for anti-infective activities. Biological and Medicinal Importance of Sponge, Biological Resources of Water, Sajal Ray, IntechOpen, DOI: 10.5772/intechopen.73529. Ara-A, ara-C (1-β-Darabinosyl cytosine, cytarabine), acyclovir, and azidothymidine are in clinical use and are all examples of products of semisynthetic modifications of the arabinosyl nucleosides [106]. BMC Med Educ. The soft bristles make this product a suitable replacement to the mouth sponges. The literature presents a good number of reports about different biological activities of marine sponges. Ara-A has been used for the treatment of herpes virus infections, but it is less efficient and more toxic than acyclovir [107, 108]. Researchers also claim the anti-infective potential of marine actinomycetes is very promising.
