Free radicals and other so-called 'reactive species' are constantly produced in the brain in vivo. Some arise by 'accidents of chemistry', an example of which may be the leakage of electrons from the mitochondrial electron transport chain to generate superoxide radical (O2*-). Others are generated for useful purposes, such as the role of nitric oxide in neurotransmission and the production of O2*- by activated microglia. Because of its high ATP demand, the brain consumes O2 rapidly, and is thus susceptible to interference with mitochondrial function, which can in turn lead to increased O2*- formation. The brain contains multiple antioxidant defences, of which the mitochondrial manganese-containing superoxide dismutase and reduced glutathione seem especially important. Iron is a powerful promoter of free radical damage, able to catalyse generation of highly reactive hydroxyl, alkoxyl and peroxyl radicals from hydrogen peroxide and lipid peroxides, respectively. Although most iron in the brain is stored in ferritin, 'catalytic' iron is readily mobilised from injured brain tissue. Increased levels of oxidative damage to DNA, lipids and proteins have been detected by a range of assays in post-mortem tissues from patients with Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and at least some of these changes may occur early in disease progression. The accumulation and precipitation of proteins that occur in these diseases may be aggravated by oxidative damage, and may in turn cause more oxidative damage by interfering with the function of the proteasome. Indeed, it has been shown that proteasomal inhibition increases levels of oxidative damage not only to proteins but also to other biomolecules. Hence, there are many attempts to develop antioxidants that can cross the blood-brain barrier and decrease oxidative damage. Natural antioxidants such as vitamin E (tocopherol), carotenoids and flavonoids do not readily enter the brain in the adult, and the lazaroid antioxidant tirilazad (U-74006F) appears to localise in the blood-brain barrier. Other antioxidants under development include modified spin traps and low molecular mass scavengers of O2*-. One possible source of lead compounds is the use of traditional remedies claimed to improve brain function. Little is known about the impact of dietary antioxidants upon the development and progression of neurodegenerative diseases, especially Alzheimer's disease. Several agents already in therapeutic use might exert some of their effects by antioxidant action, including selegiline (deprenyl), apomorphine and nitecapone.

Platelet CoQ10 redox ratios (reduced CoQ10 to oxidized CoQ10) and the ratio of the reduced form, compared with total platelet CoQ10, were significantly decreased in de novo parkinsonian patients. Platelet CoQ10 redox ratios were further decreased by L-DOPA treatment (not significant), whilst selegiline treatment partially restored CoQ10 redox ratios. Monoamine oxidase activities in non-selegiline treated patients were similar to controls.

The thermal behaviour of Selegiline (a chiral, non racemic pharmaceutical used in the therapy of Parkinson disease) was studied by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) for determining the enantiomeric purity (e.p.) of the bulk substance. It has been found, that (i) the binary phase diagram (melting point phase diagram) of the R/S enantiomer mixtures is characteristic to that of the true racemic compounds; (ii) the melting behaviour of the R/S binary mixtures follows the thermodynamic laws (i.e. the Schröder-Van Laar and the Prigogine-Defay equations); (iii) the e.p. of the highly purified bulk substance can be expressed as "DSC purity" (this latter is obtained from the Van't Hoff equation) and the microcalorimetric method as above gives good reproducibility; (iv) due to the minor impurities (other than the S(-) enantiomer) the obtained e.p. (expressed as DSC purity) can be higher but not lower than the actual e.p. of the investigated substance.

Parkinson's disease, known also as striatal dopamine deficiency syndrome, is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system characterized by akinesia, muscular rigidity, tremor at rest, and postural abnormalities. In early stages of parkinsonism, there appears to be a compensatory increase in the number of dopamine receptors to accommodate the initial loss of dopamine neurons. As the disease progresses, the number of dopamine receptors decreases, apparently due to the concomitant degeneration of dopamine target sites on striatal neurons. The loss of dopaminergic neurons in Parkinson's disease results in enhanced metabolism of dopamine, augmenting the formation of H2O2, thus leading to generation of highly neurotoxic hydroxyl radicals (OH.). The generation of free radicals can also be produced by 6-hydroxydopamine or MPTP which destroys striatal dopaminergic neurons causing parkinsonism in experimental animals as well as human beings. Studies of the substantia nigra after death in Parkinson's disease have suggested the presence of oxidative stress and depletion of reduced glutathione; a high level of total iron with reduced level of ferritin; and deficiency of mitochondrial complex I. New approaches designed to attenuate the effects of oxidative stress and to provide neuroprotection of striatal dopaminergic neurons in Parkinson's disease include blocking dopamine transporter by mazindol, blocking NMDA receptors by dizocilpine maleate, enhancing the survival of neurons by giving brain-derived neurotrophic factors, providing antioxidants such as vitamin E, or inhibiting monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B) by selegiline. Among all of these experimental therapeutic refinements, the use of selegiline has been most successful in that it has been shown that selegiline may have a neurotrophic factor-like action rescuing striatal neurons and prolonging the survival of patients with Parkinson's disease.

Acute and delayed (hormonal imprinting) effect of (-) deprenyl and its derivative without MAO-B inhibitory activity (-) PPAP, were studied on cells of the peritoneal fluid (lymphocytes, monocytes, granulocytes and mast cells) by flow cytometric and confocal microscopic analysis. Thirty minutes after treatment of 6-week-old female animals, deprenyl was ineffective while PPAP significantly increased the serotonin level of these cells. Three weeks after treatment at weaning, deprenyl drastically decreased the serotonin level of each cell type, while PPAP moderately but significantly increased the serotonin level of monocytes, granulocytes and mast cells. This means that the two related molecules have different effects on the immune cells, which seem to be independent of MAO-B inhibition. The experiments emphasize the necessity of studying the prolonged effects of biologically active molecules, even if they are without acute effects. As serotonin is a modulator of the immune system, the influence on immune cells of the molecules studied can contribute to their enhancing effect.

It is well established that nicotine activates brain dopaminergic systems and in addition has neuroprotective actions. Thus, nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) agonists might be beneficial in the treatment of Parkinson's disease, and it is important to study the interactions of nicotine with drugs affecting the nigrostriatal dopaminergic pathway. We used brain microdialysis to study the effects of nicotine on extracellular levels of dopamine (DA) and its metabolites in the rat dorsal striatum in combination with drugs inhibiting either DA uptake (nomifensine), catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT; tolcapone), monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B; selegiline) or DA receptors (haloperidol). Nicotine (0.5 mg/kg, s.c.) modestly increased DA output, and this effect was antagonised by mecamylamine but not by hexamethonium. Nomifensine (3 mg/kg, i.p.) substantially further enhanced the nicotine-induced increase in DA output and nomifensine+nicotine also evoked a strong mecamylamine-sensitive ipsilateral rotational behaviour in 6-hydroxydopamine lesioned rats. Tolcapone (10 mg/kg, i.p.) did not alter DA output, but markedly decreased homovanillic acid (HVA) and increased 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC). Selegiline pretreatment (5 x 1 mg/kg, i.p.) significantly increased extracellular DA and decreased DOPAC and HVA. Haloperidol (0.1 mg/kg, s.c.) slightly increased DA output and more clearly DOPAC and HVA. Tolcapone, selegiline or haloperidol did not enhance the nicotine-induced DA output. These results indicate that the activation of nigrostriatal nAChRs induces a significant DA release in the striatum, which is potentiated by DA uptake inhibition but not by COMT, MAO-B or presynaptic DA receptor inhibition. Our findings therefore agree with the notion that the termination of the effect of DA in the synapse mainly occurs via neuronal reuptake. Thus, selective nAChR agonists, possibly in combination with a DA uptake inhibitor, might improve dopaminergic transmission in Parkinson's disease.

One hundred fifty-seven de novo PD patients were randomized in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 7 years' duration. In the monotherapy part, selegiline significantly delayed the initiation of levodopa therapy vs placebo. The authors now report the results from the combination part of the study, in which 140 patients received selegiline or placebo in addition to individually tailored levodopa therapy.

Selegiline (1-deprenyl) is an irreversible inhibitor of monoamine oxidase (MAO) type B. Because in the human brain, dopamine is metabolised mainly by MAO-B, selegiline increases dopamine content in the central nervous system. Besides the inhibition of MAO-B, selegiline also inhibits the uptake of dopamine and noradrenaline into presynaptic nerve and increases the turnover of dopamine. Thanks to these properties, selegiline significantly potentiates the pharmacological effects of levodopa. These favourable characteristics have been applied in the treatment of Parkinson's disease using selegiline both with levodopa and alone. Unlike earlier MAO-inhibitors, selegiline does not potentiate the hypertensive effects of tyramine. This is due to the selectivity to MAO-B, leaving intestinal MAO-A intact, and also due to the fact that selegiline inhibits the uptake of tyramine into neurons. Selegiline can prevent the parkinsonism caused by MPTP in animals; similar findings have been reported with other toxins like 6-OHDA and DSP-4, that destroys noradrenergic nuclei. Furthermore, selegiline reduces oxidative stress caused by degradation of dopamine and increases free radical elimination by enhancing superoxide dismutase and catalase activity. These findings may be important when considering the possible neuroprotective effects of selegiline. Besides the basic pharmacology also the interactions and pharmacokinetics of selegiline are reviewed in this article.

Although safer and easier to use antidepressants (ie.,SSRIs/SNRIs) have largely displaced MAOIs, these medications still have a role in difficult to treat conditions. Efforts to improve MAOIs benefit-risk profile resulted on the reversible MAOI and in the first antidepressant patch (selegiline transdermal delivery system-STS). The later had been available in the US since 2006. Thus a review on its safety profile and comparative efficacy is timely.

A good correlation was seen between in vivo binding and in vitro data, with the correlation being equally good irrespective of whether metabolite corrected plasma or modified cerebellar uptake values were used as input function. The epileptic lobe was, compared to non-epileptic, characterized by a lower initial distribution and an enhanced late accumulation of the tracer. With the applied method, it was possible to correctly identify the epileptic side in all 6 unilateral patients and I probable bilateral case.

We report here the case of a patient with fluoxetine and selegiline induced serotonin syndrome, which presented as encephalopathy, generalized myoclonias, fever, stiffness and sweating, complicated with acute renal failure, rhabdomyolysis and disseminated intravascular coagulation findings. The patient died 6 days after admission. This syndrome is discussed, with an analysis of its causes, pathophysiology and therapy. A special emphasis is placed on the clinical issues and differential diagnosis with the malignant neuroleptic syndrome and other clinical entities with which it could be mistaken. General recommendations are provided to avoid this poorly characterized syndrome that, as in our patient, may have a fatal outcome.

Monoamine oxidase (MAO) was characterized in tissue homogenates from pancreatic islets, exocrine pancreas, and liver from rats. Phenylethylamine was preferentially deaminated by pancreatic islet MAO while 5-hydroxytryptamine was preferentially deaminated by MAO from exocrine pancreas, and tyramine was a good substrate for both tissues. All three substrates were well deaminated by liver tissue. Clorgyline, a selective inhibitor of MAO-A, preferentially inhibited deamination of 5-hydroxytryptamine by all three tissue homogenates, while deprenyl, a selective inhibitor of MAO-B, preferentially inhibited deamination of phenylethylamine. In the case of pargyline, a less selective MAO-B inhibitor, the preference in favour of phenylethylamine was less pronounced. According to these results, MAO in pancreatic islets can be classified as predominantly type B enzyme species and MAO in exocrine pancreas as predominantly type A enzyme species while both types of the enzyme are present in the liver. Using the same three MAO substrates and compared with the effects of the selective enzyme inhibitors, clorgyline and deprenyl, tranylcypromine can be classified as a potent nonselective inhibitor of MAO in homogenates of all three tissues investigated with a slight preference in favour of the inhibition of the B-form of the enzyme, while in contrast amezinium can be classified as a weak nonselective inhibitor of MAO with a slight preference in favour of the inhibition of the A-form of the enzyme. All MAO inhibitors tested also inhibited insulin secretion by isolated incubated rat pancreatic islets, however only at IC50 which were two to three decimal powers higher than those necessary for the inhibition of the MAO activity, thus indicating that inhibition of MAO activity and inhibition of insulin secretion are apparently not closely related.

C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) is a neurotrophic factor widely expressed in the central nervous system including the basal ganglia, limbic system and hypothalamus. Nothing is known of CNP's role in the human brain but in rodents CNP promotes axon growth and branching, and interacts with dopaminergic function in models of addiction. Because preliminary evidence showed reduced levels in Parkinson's disease (PD), we examined concentrations of CNP peptides in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in 146 PD patients from the DATATOP study to determine changes over time in relation to medication status and cognitive function. CNP and an aminoterminal product of proCNP (NTproCNP) were measured in extracts from stored CSF by radioimmunoassay. CSF samples were obtained twice-at enrolment and at the study's endpoint (requirement for levodopa treatment) after treatment with placebo or deprenyl. At enrolment, median baseline concentration of CSF NTproCNP (776 pmol/L, n = 146) was significantly lower than that in a reference group without neurological disorder (1,010 pmol/L, p < 0.001). Concentrations declined significantly during placebo (p = 0.02) and lower values at enrolment were associated with more rapid functional decline (p < 0.01). In contrast, deprenyl-a treatment which delayed the need for levodopa-nullified the time-dependent decline in CSF NTproCNP. In conclusion subnormal CSF NTproCNP which declines with time and associates with increasing functional disability implicates CNP in PD. Concordant clinical and peptide responses to deprenyl suggest that some of the benefits of monoamine oxidase inhibitors in PD are mediated by preserving tissue CNP activity.

Visual motor control (VMC) of arm movements is disturbed in patients with Parkinson's disease. The effect of antiparkinsonian medications on VMC is unknown. To assess the effect of deprenyl, a monoamine oxidase type B inhibitor, on VMC in the early stages of parkinsonism. Fourteen recently diagnosed, unmedicated patients with primary degenerative parkinsonism, mean age 61.9 +/- 2.8 years, were assessed by a computerized VMC system for tracking and tracing on a sine wave, circle, and square. Score was given for total time of test performance, directional error, arm velocity, and number of interruptions in tracking. All patients performed the first VMC test at baseline, prior to any antiparkinsonian treatment. The second test was performed after a month of treatment with 2.5 mg/d of deprenyl, and the third test was done after an additional month of treatment with 10 mg/d of deprenyl. Results were compared with 15 healthy volunteers with a mean age of 63.1 +/- 1.2 years. Parkinsonian patients performed significantly poorer on the VMC when compared to controls. Tracing was more affected than tracking. Tracing total time was almost twice as long as for controls (p < .0005). Treatment with 2.5 mg/d and 10 mg/d of deprenyl improved performance significantly (p < .05 and p < .005, respectively). Velocity of arm movement was not affected by deprenyl treatment in either dose. Directional control (tracing), severely disturbed in the parkinsonian group, improved back to the performance of healthy controls after 10 mg/d of deprenyl. In recently diagnosed parkinsonian patients internally guided VMC tasks were disturbed more than externally guided ones. Deprenyl treatment selectively improved directional control of arm movement in a dose related manner.

The on-off phenomenon is an almost invariable consequence of sustained levodopa treatment in patients with Parkinson's disease. Phases of immobility and incapacity associated with depression alternate with jubilant thaws. Both pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic factors are involved in its pathogenesis, but evidence is presented to indicate that the importance of levodopa handling has been underestimated and that progressive reduction in the storage capacity of surviving nigrostriatal dopamine terminals is not a critical factor. Re-distribution of levodopa dosage which may mean smaller, more frequent doses, or larger less frequent increments, may be helpful in controlling oscillations in some patients. Dietary protein restriction, the use of selegiline hydrochloride and bromocriptine may also temporarily improve motor fluctuations. New approaches to management include the use of subcutaneous apomorphine, controlled-release preparations of levodopa with a peripheral dopa decarboxylase inhibitor and the continuous intra-duodenal administration of levodopa.

DSP-4 is a potent and highly selective neurotoxin of noradrenergic axons of locus coeruleus origin. The authors found that in addition to depletion of the hippocampal noradrenergic terminals the histochemical reactivity of nitric oxide synthase (NOS, NADPH-diaphorase) was lost from neurons in the subgranule zone and hilar region of the dentate gyrus 2 weeks after a systemic administration of this toxin. Pretreatment with R(-)-deprenyl and 2-HxMP (2-hexyl-N-methylpropargylamine, which protects hippocampal noradrenergic axons against DSP-4 neurotoxicity, led to a complete prevention of the loss of NADPH-diaphorase activity.

Parkinson disease progression is associated with the development of levodopa short-duration responses and dyskinesias, as well as gait freezing. Levodopa dose adjustment and adjunctive treatment with dopamine agonists form the major therapeutic strategies. Catechol O-methyltransferase inhibitors are also appropriate considerations, whereas other drugs, including selegiline, amantadine, anticholinergic agents, and propranolol, have a more minor role.

The ejaculatory response and other components of the 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) behavioural syndrome induced by 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeODMT) (3 mg kg-1, i.p.) were studied following single and repeated treatment of rats with eight different monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors. Single and repeated treatment with the 5-HT agonist 5-MeODMT, and with low doses of the potent releaser of 5-HT, p-chloroamphetamine (PCA) were also included in the study. Repeated but not single treatment with 5-MeODMT reduced strongly but reversibly the ejaculatory response and the behavioural responses. Repeated but not single treatment with the nonselective and irreversible MAO inhibitors nialamide and pargyline reduced markedly the ejaculatory response but only slightly the 5-HT behavioural responses. Repeated treatment with the irreversible MAO-B inhibitor (-)-deprenyl, with the irreversible MAO-A inhibitor, clorgyline, with the reversible MAO-A inhibitor moclobemide, and with low doses of PCA did not affect either of the responses. Repeated but not single combined treatment with clorgyline plus PCA caused an almost complete blockade of all the four responses. The selective and reversible MAO-A inhibitors (as well as 5-HT releasers) amiflamine, alpha-ethyltryptamine, and alpha-methyltryptamine reduced markedly the ejaculatory response after both single and repeated treatments. The behavioural responses were blocked only after repeated treatment. It is concluded that single and repeated treatments of rats with different MAO inhibitors do not produce a common alteration in 5-HT2 receptor functions. Repeated treatment with 5-MeODMT caused a blockade of 75-95% of the ejaculatory response and 5-HT behavioural responses. A similar strong blockade was only produced by the combined effect of MAO-A inhibition and 5-HT release.

50 de novo patients with Parkinson's disease were investigated in a retrospective study after selegiline (-)deprenyl monotherapy and a combination of (-)deprenyl and levodopa. The study involved subjects with different Hoehn-Yahr stages (I, II, III, IV). During the treatment period the distribution of age (below 60 yr or above 60 yr) among the Hoehn-Yahr stages was similar to that of the baseline period, while the clinical disability for the patients starting with hypokinesis meant a more severe state compared to the cases with tremor. The sex ratio was similar during the baseline period but later, during the administration of deprenyl, the progression of males was slower than that of females. (-)Deprenyl was effective in decreasing the hypokinesis, while the rigidity was improved less by this drug. The reduction of parkinsonian symptoms developed slowly and was independent of the severity of Parkinson's disease. The maintenance of deprenyl monotherapy showed a high individual variation but the average period was about one year. The termination of the effect of deprenyl was rapid, however, not progressive. The time of the appearance of the side effects of additional levodopa was not delayed by deprenyl treatment. After five years the severity of disease was similar to the baseline disability scores in spite of the combined therapy with levodopa and deprenyl.

Pergolide is a dopamine agonist acting on D1 and D2 receptors and has been used as an adjunct therapy with levodopa. We have retrospectively investigated its role over a duration of upto six years in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients to study: (1) its influence on the progression of disability related to PD; (2) effect on blood pressure and weight during the treatment period; (3) whether the use of pergolide has a long term levodopa sparing effect; (4) and how is it tolerated during this period? We studied 43 patients who had been on adjunct therapy with pergolide in addition to levodopa for more than six months. Mean age was 66 years, mean duration of PD prior to adding pergolide was 8 years and final assessment was done after a mean duration of adjunct therapy of 29 (6-72) months. There was no progression of disease disability as assessed on Hoehn and Yahr stage (p=0.09) and Webster score (p=0.20), while there was an improvement in symptom score (p=0.001). There was an insignificant reduction in the dose of levodopa at final assessment from 630 to 535mg (p=0.06). A significant number of patients were able to discontinue taking selegiline (p=0.002). There was no change in the number of patients with hallucinations (p=0.15) and dyskinesia (p=0.09). There was a significant fall in weight (p=0.02), systolic (p=0.023) and diastolic blood pressure (p=0.03). This fall did not correlate with age, dose of pergolide or levodopa or disease severity but was influenced by duration of treatment. Ten patients discontinued pergolide for minor reasons after a mean duration of therapy for 23 months. We conclude that pergolide is a valuable adjunct therapy with levodopa over a duration of upto six years to maintain control of motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease.

The aim was to investigate the effects of inhibition of monoamine oxidase type B (MAO-B) with selegiline alone and the combined inhibition of peripheral catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) with entacapone and MAO-B with selegiline on striatal 6-[18F]fluorodopa (FDOPA) accumulation, and whether the effect of entacapone + selegiline on FDOPA uptake differed depending on the severity of the presynaptic dopaminergic dysfunction. Thus, eight healthy controls, eight de novo patients with Parkinson's disease (PD), and 18 levodopa-treated PD patients were investigated with positron emission tomography (PET). Half of the subjects in each population belonged to the selegiline group and half to the entacapone + selegiline group. Both groups were studied twice with PET using FDOPA. After the first (baseline) FDOPA PET investigation, both groups were on 2 weeks of selegiline treatment, 10 mg daily. Thereafter, the second FDOPA PET was performed for all subjects with a premedication administered 60 min before the PET imaging; one group received 10 mg of selegiline, and the other group received a single 400 mg dose of entacapone coadministered with 10 mg of selegiline. Selegiline treatment alone had no significant influence on striatal FDOPA metabolism. The FDOPA accumulation, expressed as striatal-to-occipital ratios and modified decarboxylation coefficients (k3R0), increased significantly after entacapone + selegiline administration in all subject populations. The FDOPA uptake rate constant (Ki) remained virtually unchanged in controls and in de novo patients but decreased significantly in levodopa-treated PD patients after entacapone + selegiline intake. Entacapone + selegiline administration did not influence significantly the unidirectional blood-to-brain clearance for FDOPA (K1D) or the relative dopadecarboxylase activity (k3D). The changes in the studied parameters after entacapone + selegiline administration probably reflect the effects of entacapone, since entacapone alone has caused similar changes in previous PET studies. Response in FDOPA accumulation to entacapone + selegiline was higher in controls and de novo patients compared with levodopa-treated PD patients. The milder response in levodopa-treated patients might reflect the reduced ability of the degenerated dopaminergic neurons to utilize the prolonged FDOPA availability, produced by entacapone.

The factors that influence the initial phase of quitting smoking have been understudied. Although maintenance of change is the ultimate test of the efficacy of treatment, maintenance is a nonissue for those who fail to manage even brief periods of abstinence. We examined factors associated with smokers' ability to achieve a targeted 24-hr quit during a smoking cessation program. As a comparison, we also examine whether predictors of an initial quit are different from factors that predict smoking abstinence at 52-week follow-up.

The aim of the present study was to investigate the propensity of thiolated chitosan nanoparticles (TCNs) to enhance the nasal delivery of selegiline hydrochloride. TCNs buy eldepryl were synthesized by the ionic gelation method. The particle size distribution (PDI), entrapment efficiency (EE), and zeta potential of modified chitosan (CS) nanoparticles were found to be 215 ± 34.71 nm, 70 ± 2.71%, and + 17.06 mV, respectively. The forced swim and the tail suspension tests were used to evaluate the anti-depressant activity, in which elevated immobility time was found to reduce on treatment. TCNs seem to be promising candidates for nose-to-brain delivery in the evaluation of antidepressant activity.

An analytical solution to the differential equations describing the kinetics of the suicide inhibition of a two-enzyme system has been derived and the modelling of suicide inhibition of the monoamine oxidases A and B (MAO buy eldepryl A and B, EC by a quasi-selective agent, (-)-deprenyl, is presented as an example. A new parameter, the specificity index is defined and used in a model which describes the specific and non-specific binding of (-)-deprenyl to MAO B and MAO A, respectively. This type of analysis may be of therapeutic value by indicating optimal dosage of quasi-selective MAO B inhibitors for the treatment of Parkinson's disease.

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is initially and primarily associated with the degeneration and alteration in the metabolism of cholinesterases (ChEs). The use of ChEs inhibitors to treat Alzheimer's condition, on the basis of the cholinergic hypothesis of the disease, is, therefore, without grounds. Most disturbing is the fact that the currently available anti-ChEs are designed to inhibit normal ChEs in the brain and throughout the body, but not the abnormal ones. Based on the acetylcholinesterase (AChE) deficiency theory, treatment should be designed to protect the cranial ChEs system from alteration and/or to help that system fight against degeneration through restoring its homeostatic action for brain structure and function instead. The overlap in the clinical, biochemical, molecular-cellular, and pathological alterations seen in patients with AD and individuals with many other brain disorders, which has bewildered many investigators, may now be explained by the shared underlying mismetabolism of brain ChEs. The abnormal metabolism of ChEs existing in asymptomatic subjects may indicate that the system is "at risk" and deserves serious attention. Future perspectives of ChEs research in vivo and in vitro in connection with AD and clinical diagnosis, prevention and treatment are proposed. Several potentially useful therapeutic and preventive means and pharmacological agents in this regard are identified and discussed, such buy eldepryl as physical and intellectual stimulation, and a class of drugs including vitamin E, R-(-)-deprenyl (deprenyl, selegiline), acetyl L-carnitine, cytidine diphosphocholine (CDP-choline), centrophenoxine, L-phenylalanine, naloxone, galactose, and lithium, that have been proven to be able to stimulate AChE activity. Their working mechanisms may be through directly changing the configuration of AChE molecules and/or correcting micro- and overall environmental biological conditions for ChEs.

Rats were trained to discriminate between the effects of 0.6 mg/kg of (+)-amphetamine given intraperitoneally saline in a two-lever operant task, according to a fixed ratio ( FR10 ) schedule of food reinforcement. Once trained (greater than 90% responding on the appropriate lever during sessions with drug and saline, respectively over 2 weeks), they were given tests of generalization with various type A, type B or mixed type monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOI). Generalization was tested during the first 100 sec of a 15 min trial during which no reinforcements were given (extinction) followed by reinforcement on both levers for the rest of the session. Generalization to amphetamine was estimated using buy eldepryl both the percentage of responding on the "drug lever" and a measure of choice of lever. None of the type A MAOI's tested [ cimoxatone (MD 780515), clorgyline, LY 51641, moclobemide (Ro 11-1163), toloxatone] showed generalization towards the lever for amphetamine. Clear or partial amphetamine-like responding was observed with the B type MAOI (+/-)-deprenyl and LY 54761 but not with two other type B MAOI's MD 240928 or pargyline. (+/-)-Tranylcypromine, but not nialamide (mixed type MAOI's), induced dose-dependent responding on the lever for amphetamine. It was concluded that amphetamine-like activity was not an intrinsic property of A or B type MAOI's.

Despite new medical and surgical therapy, mortality rates for Parkinson's disease remain unchanged. Nevertheless, symptom progression can be slowed and quality of life improved with current methods of treatment. Levodopa is the most effective drug for Parkinson's disease, but its long-term use is associated with significant motor complications. Dopamine agonists hold promise because of more sustained stimulation of dopamine receptors and possibly an antioxidant effect. Selegiline, amantadine, and anticholinergics are still used but must be employed with caution in the elderly. COMT inhibitors may be useful adjuncts to levodopa therapy but are plagued with serious adverse effects. Goals of therapy in patients less than 60 years of age include sparing levodopa therapy and providing neuroprotection. For patients 60 years and older, goals include buy eldepryl maintaining cognitive status and treating symptoms. Surgical treatment includes globus pallidus internal-segment pallidotomy, deep brain stimulation, and fetal nigral transplantation. These hold promise for the future.

Serotonin (5-HT), norepinephrine (NE) and dopamine (DA) released from nerve terminals in the brain are primarily removed from the synaptic cleft by a reuptake mechanism. In part, the homeostasis is maintained by monoamine oxidase (MAO) deamination achieved primarily intracellularly. The present study's aim was to examine the effect of the acute administration of the MAO inhibitors, moclobemide (a MAO-A inhibitor) and deprenyl (a MAO-B inhibitor), on 5-HT synthesis rates, measured in discrete regions of the rat brain by an autoradiographic method, using alpha-[14C]methyl-l-tryptophan as a tracer. MAO inhibitors have different effects on 5-HT synthesis rates in the cell bodies and areas of the nerve terminals. Moclobemide (10 mg/kg, i.p. 30 min before the tracer injection) and deprenyl (3 mg/kg, i.p. 2 h before the tracer injection) decreased the 5-HT synthesis rates in the dorsal (-18% and -22%) and median (-22% and -33%) raphe, respectively. Moclobemide also significantly decreased 5-HT synthesis in the entire nerve terminal areas investigated. The reductions were between 23% (cingulate cortex) and 50% (locus coeruleus). Deprenyl did not significantly affect 5-HT synthesis in the nerve terminals. The present results suggest that MAO-A, and to a lesser extent, MAO-B, are involved in the regulation of 5-HT synthesis in the rat brain. The mechanism(s) of MAO inhibitors' action on 5-HT synthesis in the raphe nuclei are probably related to an buy eldepryl increase in the extraneuronal 5-HT concentration and also to the interaction between the serotonergic and catecholaminergic neurons. The reduction of 5-HT synthesis in the raphe nuclei likely occurs by an action of extracellular 5-HT via the dendritic autoreceptors with a possible contribution from the action of extracellular DA and NE. In the terminal regions, the most likely mechanism is via the presynaptic autoreceptors through which elevated extraneuronal 5-HT acts on synthesis control. However, there is also a possibility that the elevation in intraneuronal 5-HT directly inhibits its synthesis, especially following deprenyl treatment. A great influence of moclobemide on 5-HT synthesis could be related to its antidepressant action.

Straight and branched chain aliphatic monoamines, which are not normal tissue constituents, are deaminated selectively by type B monoamine oxidase (MAO-B). They exhibit a high affinity towards the active site of MAO-B and this made them very useful pharmacologically. An anticonvulsant prodrug, Milacemide [2-(N-pentyl)glycinamide] is deaminated by MAO-B and this facilitates a mechanism of delivering glycine into the CNS. We have found that 2-propyl-pentylamine (2-propyl-1-aminopentane) buy eldepryl and N-(2-propylpentyl)glycinamide are also converted by MAO-B to valproic acid and glycine both in vitro and in vivo; these compounds, however, cause severe tremor. By attaching a propargylamine group the resultant series of aliphatic propargylamine derivatives have been shown to be very potent selective MAO-B inhibitors. They are chemically quite different from most other MAO-B inhibitors, since they do not possess any aromatic structures. The relatively short chain aliphatic propargylamines, i.e. N-2-pentyl-N-methylpropargylamine and N-2-hexyl-N-methylpropargylamine, are 4 to 5 times more potent and more selective than selegiline (1-deprenyl) with respect to the inhibition of MAO-B in brain following oral administration. Semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase (SSAO) catalyzes the deamination of not only longer chain aliphatic amines but also short chain aliphatic amines including methylamine. Formaldehyde is produced from methylamine by SSAO. Increased methylamine deamination may cause cellular damage in some pathological conditions, such as uraemia and diabetes. We have observed that cultured human endothelial cells are damaged by methylamine in the presence of SSAO. Inhibition of the SSAO activity completely protects these cells from the methylamine-SSAO induced damage.

Psychosis arises with considerable frequency in a number of neurologic conditions. The treatment of such patients is often challenging, as many of the treatments for psychosis pose some risk of worsening the underlying neurologic condition. Although psychosis may emerge in the context of any neurologic condition that sufficiently disrupts the functioning of or connections between limbic, paralimbic, frontal, subcortical areas mediating complex sensory perception, interpretation, and thought or language organization, secondary psychoses are most often encountered in patients with Alzheimer's disease (Parkinson's disease receives dopaminomimetic therapies) and epilepsy. Psychosis, and particularly delusions and visual hallucinations, may arise in Alzheimer's disease. Based on the available literature, the first-line therapy for this problem is risperidone 0.5 to 3 mg per day. If this treatment proves unsuccessful, low-dose haloperidol or olanzapine should be considered next. If these treatments prove unsuccessful, quetiapine should then be considered. Finally, clozapine may be useful for treatment-refractory psychosis due to Alzheimer's disease, but due caution is warranted given its considerable anticholinergic properties and potential for worsening cognition in these patients. Although disease-emergent psychosis (paranoid delusions and visual hallucinations) may develop in patients with Parkinson's disease, psychosis due to dopaminomimetic therapy is much more common. When such symptoms develop, the accepted first step is to taper anti-parkinsonian medications were possible. Anticholinergic medications, amantadine, selegiline, and dopamine receptor agonists should be reduced or discontinued, provided that the patient can tolerate changes in motor symptoms attendant to such reductions. When these reductions are not feasible or fail to improve treatment-emergent psychosis, low-dose quetiapine or clozapine may be useful. The greatest body of evidence supports the effectiveness of these treatments and their relative lack of adverse effects on motor function. When psychosis develops in the context of epilepsy, the buy eldepryl generally accepted first step is to maximize anticonvulsant therapy in an effort to reduce the possible contribution of electrophysiologic disturbances in the described areas to psychotic symptoms. When interictal psychosis persists despite such adjustments, initiation with low-dose atypical antipsychotics carries the least risk of lowering seizure threshold and should be considered.

The selective monoamine oxidase-B inhibitor selegiline (deprenyl) causes sympathomimetic effects and is metabolised to R(-)-methamphetamine and R(-)-amphetamine. The new monoamine oxidase-B inhibitor rasagiline is devoid of sympathomimetic effects and is metabolised to R(+)-1-aminoindan. Sympathomimetic effects of methamphetamine and 1-aminoindan enantiomers were compared in the rat vas deferens. R(-)-methamphetamine and S(+)-methamphetamine caused initial potentiation and subsequent inhibition of the field stimulation-induced twitch response of isolated rat vas deferens (0.1 Hz). EC(50) values for inhibition of twitch in prazosin-treated vas deferens were 0.36+/-0.13 and 1.64+/-0.10 microM (mean+/-S.E.M.) for S(+)- and R(-)-methamphetamine, respectively. There was no difference between S(+)-methamphetamine and R(-)-methamphetamine in potentiation of postsynaptic contractile response to noradrenaline. R(+)- and S(-)-1-aminoindan increased twitch response only at concentrations above 30 microM. R(-)-methamphetamine has similar potency to S(+)-methamphetamine in potentiation of noradrenaline-mediated responses and can therefore play a role in the sympathomimetic effects of buy eldepryl selegiline.

R(-)-Deprenyl, an archetypical MAO-B inhibitor, has been shown to delay the onset buy eldepryl of the disabling syndrome of Parkinson's disease and to be useful in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease. Recently, R(-)-deprenyl has been claimed to be capable of preventing apoptosis of PC12 cells, which had been primed with nerve growth factor (NGF) and followed by withdrawal of serum. We investigated the effect of R(-)-deprenyl in a non-neuronal cell model, namely, apoptosis of mouse thymocytes induced by dexamethasone. Trypan blue exclusion and lactate dehydrogenase activity were applied to assess the cell survival. R(-)-Deprenyl did not exhibit any detectable protective effect to the thymocytes from apoptosis. The result is further confirmed by examining the apoptotic DNA fragmentation using gel electrophoresis and assessing the soluble DNA released by a spectrophotometric method.

In vitro quantitative autoradiography using [3H]L-deprenyl, an irreversible and preferential inhibitor of monoamine oxidase B, was performed to investigate the localization of the enzyme in brains from senile dementia of Alzheimer type and control cases. Brains from buy eldepryl three male patients with the clinical diagnosis of senile dementia of Alzheimer type and from three male control patients, without any known clinical history of neurological disorder, were obtained at autopsy. Cryosections of 100 microns thickness were mounted on gelatinized glass plates and dried over desiccant for one week at -20 degrees C. The sections were incubated with 10 nM [3H]L-deprenyl for 1 h and then exposed to film for four weeks. The autoradiographs were analysed by computer-assisted densitometry. Monoamine oxidase-B activities were also estimated in 1% homogenates from 10 different regions, using 10 microM beta-[ethyl-14C]phenylethylamine, in order to study the consonance between the autoradiographical and biochemical techniques. Both [3H]L-deprenyl binding and monoamine oxidase-B activities in senile dementia of Alzheimer type were higher than in the controls in all brain regions studied. The increase was highest in the white matter (about 70%) and in the order of 20-50% in the various gray matter regions. A high correlation coefficient (r approximately 0.9) was obtained between [3H]L-deprenyl binding and monoamine oxidase-B activity, both in the senile dementia of Alzheimer type and in the control brains.

Parkinson's disease is characterised by a variable combination of tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia and impaired righting reflexes. The cumulative life-time risk is one in 40. Levodopa remains the single most effective treatment in older patients, and the minimum dose to achieve maximum functional benefit should be employed. When fluctuations occur, controlled release preparations and selegiline can improve function. Oral dopamine agonists have a role but the combined side effect profile with levodopa should be monitored. COMT inhibitors have recently become available. Subcutaneous apomorphine can be helpful when "on-off" phenomena are marked. The concept Sinemet Drug Interactions of neuroprotection continues to be debated. Surgery is an option for fitter older people but neurotransplantation remains essentially a research tool.

Plasma monoamines and monoamine metabolites were assessed before and during selegiline treatment in adults with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Selegiline, at low dose, is a selective monoamine oxidase inhibitor type B (MAOI-B). After 2-week placebo baseline, 36 ADHD adults were randomized to 6-week placebo or 20 mg/day or 60 mg/day selegiline, followed by 2-week posttreatment placebo. Twenty-seven subjects continued into a 6-week 20-mg/day or Cytoxan 600 Mg 60-mg/day selegiline period. Behavioral variables included self-rated scores on the Conners' Abbreviated Teacher Rating Scale (Conners-ATRS) and performance on a Continuous Performance Task (CPT). Plasma samples were assayed for amines (dopamine, norepinephrine, epinephrine), precursor (DOPA), and metabolites (HVA, DOPAC, DHPG, normetanephrine, metanephrine, 5-HIAA). Selegiline produced dose-dependent changes in monoamine metabolites and DOPA plasma levels. Dopaminergic indices were associated with ADHD symptom severity (Conners-ATRS) and noradrenergic indices with CPT performance. Serotonergic metabolism, challenged by selegiline, correlated with clinical changes. These findings support a multisystem dysfunction underlying ADHD pathophysiology.

Fifty Thai patients with Parkinson's disease of all staging were allocated for 10 mg/day L-deprenyl therapy as the monotherapy (6 patients) and adjunctive therapy for at least two months. The assessment of this open study included the activities of daily living using Schwab/England Scale, Hoehn and Yahr staging and Unified Parkinson Disease Motrin Buy Pharmacy Rating Scale (UPDRS) by comparison of the initial and after two month of treatment scores. There was improvement of both Schwab/England Scale and UPDRS in Hoehn and Yahr stage I, II and III patients. In stage IV and V patients there was no benefit of L-deprenyl therapy of both clinical and statistical analyses. Adverse effects of L-deprenyl were not serious. There were dry mouth (20%), anorexia (10%), nausea and vomiting (8%), insomnia (6%), lightheadedness (4%) constipation (4%), abdominal pain (2%), generalised ache (2%). We conclude that L-deprenyl therapy is effective, safe, but costly. It is more effective in early Parkinsonism. The effectiveness of L-deprenyl is less in more advanced states of Parkinson's disease. Thus, selection of the appropriate Parkinsonian patient for L-deprenyl therapy is vital.

1-Methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) is a known neurotoxicant primarily selective for catecholaminergic neurons, including those of the nigrostriatal dopaminergic system, thereby mimicking the pathology of Parkinson's disease (PD). In this study, serial transbrain sectioning, followed by staining with a newly developed fluorochrome (Fluoro-Jade) specific for degenerating neurons, was used to detect additional sites of MPTP-induced neuronal degeneration in mice. Male CD-1 mice received a single 50 mg/kg dose of MPTP intraperitoneally at room temperature or at a reduced temperature (6 degrees C), which has been shown to potentiate striatal dopamine depletion. Neuronal degeneration was observed in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SN), ventral tegmental area (VTA) and retrorubral field (RRF) of only animals dosed in the low temperature environment. Neuronal degeneration was also observed in other catecholaminergic nuclei in both treatment groups. In addition, degenerating cell bodies and fibers were detected in the midline and intralaminar thalamic nuclei of all dosed animals, regardless of the dosing environment. Pharmacological manipulations which prevented nigral degeneration (deprenyl and nomifensine pretreatment) also prevented the degeneration of thalamic neurons. MK-801 pretreatment, however, resulted in a disproportionate protection Reglan Nausea Dose of the thalamic neurons. These findings confirm and extend our previous observations regarding the protective effect of hyperthermia in CD-1 mice and also suggest that regions of the thalamus may be relevant to the pathophysiology of PD.

Groups of mice were administered either saline or 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) (2 X 40 mg / kg, s.c., separated by a 24-hour interval) 4-6 weeks prior to behavioural testing. At testing, all the MPTP-injected mice were repeatedly administered L-dopa (20 mg / kg, s.c., five times each week, Monday-Friday), by applying a procedure that induced a severe reduction of motor activity parameters from Day 1 to Day 25. Control (uninjected mice) received only saline and were retained only for neurochemical analysis. In each of three experiments, following the reduction of the activity-stimulating effects of L-dopa by repeated administration, a restorative effect of different monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors was tested by co-administration of the test compounds (irreversible MAO-B inhibitor, reversible MAO-A inhibitors, or irreversible MAO-A / mixed MAO inhibitors) with L-dopa (20 mg / kg). In each case the MAO inhibitor was injected 60 min prior to L-dopa. L-Deprenyl (3 or 10 mg / kg, s.c.), in combination with L-dopa, reinstated locomotion and total activity, but not rearing, dose-dependently, in L-dopa-tolerant mice. The reversible MAO-A inhibitors, amiflamine and alpha-ethyltryptamine, in combination with L-dopa, reinstated locomotion and total activity, leaving rearing unaffected; Ro 41-1049 (3 mg / kg, s.c.) restored all three parameters of activity; locomotor activity was restored by all three doses (1, 3, and 10 mg / kg, s.c.). On the other hand, neither the irreversible MAO Noroxin 400mg Tablet -A inhibitor, clorgyline, nor the mixed MAO inhibitor, phenelzine, produced any directly effective restorative increments. Neurochemical analysis confirmed the severe striatal dopamine depletion of MPTP-treated mice. These results demonstrate a synergistic and restorative action of combining certain MAO inhibitors, namely the reversible MAO-A inhibitors, with the suprathreshold dose of L-dopa in MPTP-treated, L-dopa-tolerant mice.

Exposure to 1-methyl- Accutane Reviews 4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) causes loss of dopaminergic neurons in humans, primates and mice. Exposure of sagittal slices of mouse brain to MPTP (100 pM) caused inhibition of mitochondrial NADH-dehydrogenase activity. Leakage of lactate dehydrogenase from the slice into the medium was observed following incubation of slices with 1 nM MPTP. Neurotoxicity induced by MPTP was prevented by prior exposure of the slices to the dopamine uptake inhibitor GBR 12935. Deprenyl and pargyline (inhibitors of monoamine oxidase), also protected the slices from MPTP-induced toxicity. However, both pargyline and deprenyl also inhibited cytochrome P-450 mediated aminopyrine N-demethylase activity in brain slices. Pargyline, when administered in vivo to mice, decreased brain cytochrome P-450 levels significantly. Other cytochrome P-450 inhibitors, namely, piperonyl butoxide and SKF 525A were found to offer protection against MPTP induced neurotoxicity in slices without affecting monoamine oxidase activity. MPTP toxicity was potentiated significantly in brain slices prepared from mice pretreated with phenobarbital, an inducer of cytochrome P-450. The present study suggests the possible involvement of cytochrome P-450 in MPTP-induced neurotoxicity, in vitro, in brain slices.

The effect of selective inhibition of monoamine oxidase (MAO) subtypes A and B on striatal metabolism of DOPA to dopamine (DA), 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC), and 4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenylacetic acid (homovanillic acid; HVA) was studied in halothane-anesthetized rats 3 weeks after Diovan Generic Substitute unilateral 6-hydroxydopamine lesion of the substantia nigra. Implantation of bilateral microdialysis probes allowed simultaneous quantitation of metabolite production on lesioned and control sides. The DOPA was administered as a 15-min bolus of 1 mM solution in the striatal microdialysate. Rats were pretreated with the selective MAO-A inhibitor clorgyline, or the selective MAO-B inhibitors deprenyl or TVP-101 [2,3-dihydro-N-2-propynyl-1H-inden-1-amine-(1R)-hydrochloride]. Intrastriatal infusion of DOPA caused an increased efflux of DA, DOPAC, and HVA, which was greater on the intact side. Clorgyline, but not deprenyl or TVP-101, increased post-DOPA DA efflux on both intact and lesioned sides. Clorgyline also caused a marked suppression of post-DOPA DOPAC and HVA effluxes, whereas only mild effects were produced by the MAO-B inhibitors. There was no evidence for a differential effect of MAO-B inhibition on efflux of DA or metabolites in the lesioned as compared with the control striatum. The results indicate a major role for MAO-A in DA metabolism both intra- and extraneuronally in the rat striatum.

Non-selective inhibition of monoamine oxidase (MAO) enzymes (ie, isoforms A and B) in the brain are associated with clinically significant antidepressant effects. In the US, the selegiline transdermal system (STS; EMSAM) is the first antidepressant transdermal delivery system to receive Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved labeling for the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD). Currently, the use of orally administered MAO inhibitor antidepressants (eg, phenelzine, tranylcypromine) is limited by the risk of tyramine-provoked events (eg, acute hypertension and headache, also known as the "cheese reaction") when combined with dietary tyramine. The selegiline transdermal system is the only MAOI available in the US for the treatment of MDD that does not require dietary restriction at the clinically effective dose of 6 mg/24 hours. Delivery of selegiline transdermally (EMSAM((R))) bypasses hepatic first pass metabolism, thereby avoiding significant inhibition of gastrointestinal and hepatic MAO-A activity (ie, reduced risk of tyramine-provoked events) while still providing sufficient levels of selegiline in the brain to produce an antidepressant effect. At dosages of 6-12 mg/24 hours, EMSAM has been shown to improve symptoms of depression, have good tolerability, and have high rates of medication adherence. However, at higher doses of EMSAM (ie, 9 mg/24 hours or more), dietary restriction of tyramine intake is recommended. The introduction of EMSAM overcomes many of the safety concerns affiliated with the conventional oral MAO inhibitors and EMSAM may be considered another strategy for the treatment of MDD, especially in patients who cannot tolerate oral antidepressants, are poorly adherent, who present with atypical depressive symptoms, or have failed other antidepressants.

Uptake of [3H]-metaraminol and [3H]-octopamine was compared in mouse vas deferens. The modification of tyramine and noradrenaline-induced pressor responses by AGN 1133 and AGN 1135 was examined in anaesthetized rats and cats. 2 AGN 1133 (7.5 x 10(-6)M) greatly potentiated responses to tyramine in the rat isolated vas deferens. Both AGN 1135 and (-)-deprenyl inhibited tyramine responses selectively at concentrations above 10(-5)M (which caused almost complete inhibition of MAO types A and B) but tyramine responses were potentiated on washing out the inhibitors. 3 AGN 1135 (10(-4)M) and (-)-deprenyl (10-5)M) inhibited [3H]-metaraminol uptake by about 20% in rat and mouse vas deferens; neither inhibitor affected [3H]-octopamine uptake in mouse vas deferens. Desmethylimipramine (10(-6)M) inhibited amine uptake by more than 70%. 4 AGN 1133 (1.5 mg/kg) potentiated pressor responses to tyramine in rats and cats whereas AGN 1135 (1.5 mg/kg) did not. 5 AGN 1135 possesses tyramine antagonistic activity which is qualitatively similar to that of (-)-deprenyl but which cannot satisfactorily be explained by inhibition of neuronal or granula amine uptake.
