Neurochemical and neuroprotective aspects of phenelzine and its active metabolite B-phenylethylidenehydrazineDownload
Phenelzine (PLZ) is a monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor that also inhibits the activity of GABA-transaminase (GABA-T), causing significant and long-lasting increases in brain GABA levels. Inhibition of MAO prior to PLZ administration has been shown to prevent the GABAergic effects of the drug,...
Major depression (MD) is one of the most prominent medical conditions worldwide in terms of societal cost and morbidity. MD has been associated with increased risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and conversely CVD has been associated with increased MD symptoms. Previous studies have shown that...
The Antidepressant/Antipanic/Neuroprotective Drug Phenelzine: Neuropharmacological and Drug Metabolism StudiesDownload
Phenelzine (PLZ) is a monoamine oxidase (MAO)-inhibiting antidepressant with anxiolytic and neuroprotective properties. Metabolites of PLZ were investigated in rat brain. Levels of phenylacetic acid (PAA) and β-phenylethylamine (PEA) were found to be elevated after administration of PLZ and PEH...
The hippocampus is a brain structure responsible for memory, learning, and the stress response; it is also used as a model for major depressive disorder (MDD) in preclinical studies. Preclinical models have shown that the hippocampal subfields are differentially affected by chronic stress....
Depression is a common, recurrent and frequently chronic mental health disorder that has already become one of the leading health-care burdens. Despite the wide clinical application of antidepressants, a significant portion of patients does not benefit sufficiently from the standard medication...
Phenelzine is a monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor that has been used for the treatment of depression and anxiety disorders since the 1960s. In recent years, there has been renewed interest in this drug following reports of its neuroprotective properties in animal models of cerebral ischemia,...
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic autoimmune disease of the central nervous system characterized by neurodegeneration, inflammation and demyelination. Symptoms of multiple sclerosis not only include motor deficits, but also secondary symptoms of pain, depression and anxiety. The purpose of...
Plasma Levels of Neuroactive Steroids in Panic Disorder Patients and Healthy Volunteers Following Pentagastrin versus Placebo InjectionsDownload
Panic disorder is an anxiety illness that can be quite debilitating and costly to society. To date there is no real cure for panic disorder and current methods of treatment are suboptimal. Given the level of morbidity and societal cost of panic disorder, further research and development of...
