The Little Girl Found

"The Little Girl Found" is a poem written by the English poet William Blake. It was published as part of his collection Songs of Experience in 1794. In the poem, the parents of a seven-year-old girl, called Lyca, are looking for their young daughter, lost in the desert. During days and nights they go on looking for the girl up to the moment they find a lion which tells them where the child lies; the poem begins with a girl's parents searching for her: At last, a spirit guides them to her: As a resolution to "The Little Girl Lost", this poem shows the fulfilling of Blake's image of the'desert wild become a garden mild'. Blake uses this to demonstrate that positive change away from corrupt experience is possible, but only through an acceptance of that, natural. Crucially, this poem gives hope in the surrounding bleak view of Songs of Experience, is an effective example of a retreat into nature to learn and develop, an important motif in pastoral literature

Apaziquone

Apaziquone is an indolequinone, a bioreductive prodrug similar to the older chemotherapeutic agent mitomycin C. In hypoxic cells, such as those on the inner surface of the urinary bladder, apaziquone is converted to active metabolites by intracellular reductases; the active metabolites alkylate lead to apoptosis. This activity is preferentially expressed in neoplastic cells. After administration of apaziquone directly into the urinary bladder, the drug and its active metabolite were not detected in plasma, there were no systemic side effects. Apaziquone has been applied in clinical studies sponsored by Spectrum Pharmaceuticals and Allergan for the treatment of superficial bladder cancer. 70% of all newly diagnosed patients with bladder cancer have non-muscle invasive bladder cancer and over one million patients in the United States and Europe are affected by the disease. The U. S. Food and Drug Administration has granted Fast Track review status to apaziquone for this indication
