Cholinesterase Inhibitors: Drugs that inhibit cholinesterases. The neurotransmitter ACETYLCHOLINE is rapidly hydrolyzed, and thereby inactivated, by cholinesterases. When cholinesterases are inhibited, the action of endogenously released acetylcholine at cholinergic synapses is potentiated. Cholinesterase inhibitors are widely used clinically for their potentiation of cholinergic inputs to the gastrointestinal tract and urinary bladder, the eye, and skeletal muscles; they are also used for their effects on the heart and the central nervous system.CholinesterasesPhenylcarbamates: Phenyl esters of carbamic acid or of N-substituted carbamic acids.

Metrifonate increases neuronal excitability in CA1 pyramidal neurons from both young and aging rabbit hippocampus. (1/1796)

The effects of metrifonate, a second generation cholinesterase inhibitor, were examined on CA1 pyramidal neurons from hippocampal slices of young and aging rabbits using current-clamp, intracellular recording techniques. Bath perfusion of metrifonate (10-200 microM) dose-dependently decreased both postburst afterhyperpolarization (AHP) and spike frequency adaptation (accommodation) in neurons from young and aging rabbits (AHP: p < 0.002, young; p < 0.050, aging; accommodation: p < 0.024, young; p < 0.001, aging). These reductions were mediated by muscarinic cholinergic transmission, because they were blocked by addition of atropine (1 microM) to the perfusate. The effects of chronic metrifonate treatment (12 mg/kg for 3 weeks) on CA1 neurons of aging rabbits were also examined ex vivo. Neurons from aging rabbits chronically treated with metrifonate had significantly reduced spike frequency accommodation, compared with vehicle-treated rabbits. Chronic metrifonate treatment did not result in a desensitization to metrifonate ex vivo, because bath perfusion of metrifonate (50 microM) significantly decreased the AHP and accommodation in neurons from both chronically metrifonate- and vehicle-treated aging rabbits. We propose that the facilitating effect of chronic metrifonate treatment on acquisition of hippocampus-dependent tasks such as trace eyeblink conditioning by aging subjects may be caused by this increased excitability of CA1 pyramidal neurons.  (+info)

Comparison of two in vitro activation systems for protoxicant organophosphorous esterase inhibitors. (2/1796)

In order to perform in vitro testing of esterase inhibition caused by organophosphorous (OP) protoxicants, simple, reliable methods are needed to convert protoxicants to their esterase-inhibiting forms. Incubation of parathion or chlorpyrifos with 0.05% bromine solution or uninduced rat liver microsomes (RLM) resulted in production of the corresponding oxygen analogs of these OP compounds and markedly increased esterase inhibition in SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma cells. Neither activation system affected cell viability or the activity of AChE or NTE in the absence of OP compounds. Although parathion and chlorpyrifos were activated by RLM, bromine activation required fewer steps and produced more esterase inhibition for a given concentration of chlorpyrifos. However, RLM activation of OP protoxicants produced metabolites other than oxygen analogs and may, therefore, be more relevant as a surrogate for OP biotransformation in vivo. This methodology makes the use of intact cells for in vitro testing of esterase inhibition caused by protoxicant organophosphate compounds a viable alternative to in vivo tests.  (+info)

Anaphylactic bronchoconstriction in BP2 mice: interactions between serotonin and acetylcholine. (3/1796)

1. Immunized BP2 mice developed an acute bronchoconstriction in vivo and airway muscle contraction in vitro in response to ovalbumin (OA) and these contractions were dose dependent. 2. Methysergide or atropine inhibited OA-induced bronchoconstriction in vivo and airway muscle contraction in vitro. 3. Neostigmine potentiated the OA-induced bronchoconstriction in vivo and airway muscle contraction in vitro of BP2 mice. This potentiation was markedly reduced by the administration of methysergide or atropine and when the two antagonists were administered together, the responses were completely inhibited. 4. Neostigmine also potentiated the serotonin (5-HT)- and acetylcholine (ACh)-induced bronchoconstriction and this potentiation was significantly reversed by atropine. 5. These results indicate that OA provokes a bronchoconstriction in immunized BP2 mice by stimulating the release of 5-HT, which in turn acts via the cholinergic mediator, ACh.  (+info)

Efficacy and safety of rivastigmine in patients with Alzheimer's disease: international randomised controlled trial. (4/1796)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of rivastigmine on the core domains of Alzheimer's disease. DESIGN: Prospective, randomised, multicentre, double blind, placebo controlled, parallel group trial. Patients received either placebo, 1-4 mg/day (lower dose) rivastigmine, or 6-12 mg/day (higher dose) rivastigmine. Doses were increased in one of two fixed dose ranges (1-4 mg/day or 6-12 mg/day) over the first 12 weeks with a subsequent assessment period of 14 weeks. SETTING: 45 centres in Europe and North America. PARTICIPANTS: 725 patients with mild to moderately severe probable Alzheimer's disease diagnosed according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fourth edition, and the criteria of the National Institute of Neurological and Communicative Disorders and Stroke and the Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Association. OUTCOME MEASURES: Cognitive subscale of the Alzheimer's disease assessment scale, rating on the clinician interview based impression of change incorporating caregiver information scale, and the progressive deterioration scale. RESULTS: At the end of the study cognitive function had deteriorated among those in the placebo group. Scores on the Alzheimer's disease assessment scale improved in patients in the higher dose group when compared with patients taking placebo (P<0.05). Significantly more patients in the higher dose group had improved by 4 points or more than had improved in the placebo group (24% (57/242) v 16% (39/238)). Global function as rated by the clinician interview scale had significantly improved among those in the higher dose group compared with those taking placebo (P<0.001), and significantly more patients in the higher dose group showed improvement than did in the placebo group (37% (80/219) v 20% (46/230)). Mean scores on the progressive deterioration scale improved from baseline in patients in the higher dose group but fell in the placebo group. Adverse events were predominantly gastrointestinal, of mild to moderate severity, transient, and occurred mainly during escalation of the dose. 23% (55/242) of those in the higher dose group, 7% (18/242) of those in the lower dose group, and 7% (16/239) of those in the placebo group discontinued treatment because of adverse events. CONCLUSIONS: Rivastigmine is well tolerated and effective. It improves cognition, participation in activities of daily living, and global evaluation ratings in patients with mild to moderately severe Alzheimer's disease. This is the first treatment to show compelling evidence of efficacy in a predominantly European population.  (+info)

The cholinergic hypothesis of Alzheimer's disease: a review of progress. (5/1796)

Alzheimer's disease is one of the most common causes of mental deterioration in elderly people, accounting for around 50%-60% of the overall cases of dementia among persons over 65 years of age. The past two decades have witnessed a considerable research effort directed towards discovering the cause of Alzheimer's disease with the ultimate hope of developing safe and effective pharmacological treatments. This article examines the existing scientific applicability of the original cholinergic hypothesis of Alzheimer's disease by describing the biochemical and histopathological changes of neurotransmitter markers that occur in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease both at postmortem and neurosurgical cerebral biopsy and the behavioural consequences of cholinomimetic drugs and cholinergic lesions. Such studies have resulted in the discovery of an association between a decline in learning and memory, and a deficit in excitatory amino acid (EAA) neurotransmission, together with important roles for the cholinergic system in attentional processing and as a modulator of EAA neurotransmission. Accordingly, although there is presently no "cure" for Alzheimer's disease, a large number of potential therapeutic interventions have emerged that are designed to correct loss of presynaptic cholinergic function. A few of these compounds have confirmed efficacy in delaying the deterioration of symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, a valuable treatment target considering the progressive nature of the disease. Indeed, three compounds have received European approval for the treatment of the cognitive symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, first tacrine and more recently, donepezil and rivastigmine, all of which are cholinesterase inhibitors.  (+info)

Comparison between huperzine A, tacrine, and E2020 on cholinergic transmission at mouse neuromuscular junction in vitro. (6/1796)

AIM: To compare the effects of huperzine A (Hup A), tacrine, and E2020 on cholinergic transmission at mouse neuromuscular junction in vitro. METHODS: The isolated mouse phrenic nerve-hemidiaphragm preparations were used with the conventional intracellular recording technique. The miniature end-plate potentials (MEPP), the mean quantal content of end-plate potentials (EPP), and the resting membrane potentials of muscle fiber were recorded. RESULTS: Hup A, tacrine, and E2020 at the concentration of 1.0 mumol.L-1 increased the amplitude, time-to-peak, and half-decay time of MEPP in the potencies of E2020 > Hup A > tacrine. Hup A did not significantly change the frequency of MEPP, the appearance of giant MEPP or slow MEPP, the resting membrane potentials, and the mean quantal content of EPP. CONCLUSION: Hup A is a selective and potent cholinesterase inhibitor, by which activity it facilitates the cholinergic transmission at mouse neuromuscular junction, and devoid of pre- and post-synaptic actions.  (+info)

Central nervous system-mediated hyperglycemic effects of NIK-247, a cholinesterase inhibitor, and MKC-231, a choline uptake enhancer, in rats. (7/1796)

We investigated the effects of intracerebroventricular administration of NIK-247 (9-amino-2,3,5,6,7,8-hexahydro-1H-cyclo-penta(b)-quinoline monohydrate hydrochloride; a cholinesterase inhibitor) or MKC-231 (2-(2-oxypyrrolidin-1-yl)-N-(2,3-dimethyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydrofur o[2,3-b]quinolin-4-yl) acetoamide; a choline uptake enhancer) on plasma glucose level in comparison with that of neostigmine administration in rats. The extents of NIK-247- and MKC-231-induced hyperglycemia were considerably less than that by neostigmine, suggesting that the potencies of the drugs to produce the peripheral hyperglycemia may be pharmacologically negligible.  (+info)

Electron paramagnetic resonance reveals altered topography of the active center gorge of acetylcholinesterase after binding of fasciculin to the peripheral site. (8/1796)

Fasciculin, a peptidic toxin from snake venom, inhibits mammalian and fish acetylcholinesterases (AChE) by binding to the peripheral site of the enzyme. This site is located at the rim of a narrow, deep gorge which leads to the active center triad, located at its base. The proposed mechanisms for AChE inhibition by fasciculin include allosteric events resulting in altered conformation of the AChE active center gorge. However, a fasciculin-induced altered topography of the active center gorge has not been directly demonstrated. Using electron paramagnetic resonance with the spin-labeled organophosphate 1-oxyl-2,2,6, 6-tetramethyl-4-piperidinylethylphosphorofluoridate (EtOSL) specifically bound to the catalytic serine of mouse AChE (mAChE), we show that bound fasciculin on mAChE slows down, but does not prevent phosphorylation of the active site serine by EtOSL and protects the gorge conformation against thermal denaturation. Most importantly, a restricted freedom of motion of the spin label bound to the fasciculin-associated mAChE, compared to mAChE, is evidenced. Molecular models of mAChE and fasciculin-associated mAChE with tethered EtOSL enantiomers indicate that this restricted motion is due to greater proximity of the S-EtOSL nitroxide radical to the W86 residue in the fasciculin-associated enzyme. Our results demonstrate a topographical alteration indicative of a restricted conformation of the active center gorge of mAChE with bound fasciculin at its rim.  (+info)

DUGi: Viewing Item from repository Recercat: We investigated the effect of cholinesterase inhibitors on all-cause discontinuation, efficacy and safety, and the effects of study design-, intervention-, and patient-related covariates on the risk-benefit of cholinesterase inhibitors for Alzheimers disease. Methods: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized placebo-controlled clinical trials comparing cholinesterase inhibitors and placebo was performed. The effect of covariates on study outcomes was analysed by means of meta-regression using a Bayesian framework. Results: Forty-three randomized placebo-controlled clinical trials involving 16106 patients were included. All-cause discontinuation was higher with cholinesterase inhibitors (OR = 1.66), as was discontinuation due to adverse events (OR=1.75). Cholinesterase inhibitors improved cognitive function (standardized mean difference = 0.38), global symptomatology (standardized mean difference=0.28) and functional capacity (standardized mean
In this study, we have employed in silico methodology combining double pharmacophore based screening, molecular docking, and ADME/T filtering to identify dual binding site acetylcholinesterase inhibitors that can preferentially inhibit acetylcholinesterase and simultaneously inhibit the butyrylcholinesterase also but in the lesser extent than acetylcholinesterase. 3D-pharmacophore models of AChE and BuChE enzyme inhibitors have been developed from xanthostigmine derivatives through HypoGen and validated using test set, Fischers randomization technique. The best acetylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase inhibitors pharmacophore hypotheses Hypo1_A and Hypo1_B, with high correlation coefficient of 0.96 and 0.94, respectively, were used as 3D query for screening the Zinc database. The screened hits were then subjected to the ADME/T and molecular docking study to prioritise the compounds. Finally, 18 compounds were identified as potential leads against AChE enzyme, showing good predicted ...

Huperzine A. The severity of the cognitive and functional symptoms of various neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimers disease (AD), are strongly correlated to decreased levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh). Consequently, inhibition of acetylcholine esterase (AChE) is an established strategy to alleviate these symptoms, and several AChE inhibitors are currently in clinical use. (-)-Huperzine A (6) is a potent and reversible AChE inhibitor that is well-tolerated in humans. Natural (-)-huperzine A (6) has been employed for over a decade to treatment mild-to-moderate AD in China. In addition to relieving the symptoms associated with acetylcholinesterase deficiencies, there is evidence that huperzine may modify the progression of AD. Furthermore, a large body of evidence also suggests that (-)-huperzine A (6) may be useful as a prophylaxis against organophosphate-based nerve agents. Although several syntheses of huperzine have been reported, a practical and scalable route to ...

There are no FDA-approved drugs for the treatment of VaD. However, the use of cholinesterase inhibitors and N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor antagonists for VaD has been evaluated. Donepezil (Aricept) was the first cholinesterase inhibitor studied for VaD. Two large (,300 subjects each), randomized, placebo-controlled trials of donepezil 5 mg to 10 mg per day showed improvement in AD Assessment Scale-Cognitive (ADAS-Cog) subscale scores. ADAS-Cog, the most popular instrument in clinical trials of cholinesterase inhibitors, measures deficits in memory, language, executive functioning, attention, and other cognitive abilities. A long-term extension showed continued benefit at 54 weeks, with greater improvement in subjects who started the drug at baseline than in those who started in the extension arm.9-11 In March 2006, Eisai--the manufacturer of donepezil--terminated a phase III trial evaluating the use of donepezil in VaD because of an increased risk of death in patients receiving active ...
UNLABELLED: Transient cognitive and behavioral stabilization of patients with Alzheimers disease (AD) is the main goal of long-term acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (AChEI) therapy, but response to treatment is variable and, indeed, only some of the patients are stabilized. This is usually assessed by means of clinical and neuropsychologic scales, whereas functional neuroimaging could allow objective evaluation of the topographic correlates of the effect of therapy on brain functioning. The aim of this study was to evaluate brain perfusion changes by SPECT in AD patients during chronic AChEI therapy in relation to their cognitive evolution. METHODS: Forty-seven consecutive outpatients with mild-to-moderate probable AD (as defined by the National Institute of Neurological and Communicative Disorders and Stroke-Alzheimers Disease and Related Disorders Association and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders [4th edition criteria] and a score of | or =15 on the Mini-Mental State

To our knowledge, this is the first double-blind placebo-controlled evaluation using fMRI to study the effect of a cholinesterase inhibitor on brain function in subjects with MCI. Our results suggest that donepezil, when administered during a 3- to 6-month period to subjects with MCI, may potentially enhance brain activation in the left inferior frontal gyrus during memory processing.. The left inferior frontal gyrus has been implicated in an array of attention and memory processes, including encoding and retrieval and long- and short-term memory.12-16 Previous studies have shown this region to be implicated in subjects with MCI, compared with healthy elderly controls, during performance of memory tasks, including picture encoding.17 Moreover, initial studies of cholinergic-based drugs in AD or MCI have reported enhancement of functional activation levels in the frontal lobes, in general, as well as in the left inferior frontal gyrus.11,18-22 However, none of these studies were conducted in a ...
Oxidative stress is involved in different diseases, such as diabetes and neurodegenerative diseases. The genus Azorella includes about 70 species of flowering plant species; most of them are commonly used as food and in particular as a tea infusion in the Andean region of South America in folk medicine to treat various chronic diseases. Azorella glabra Wedd. aerial parts were firstly analyzed for their in vitro antioxidant activity using different complementary assays. In particular, radical scavenging activity was tested against biological neutral radical DPPH; ferric reducing power and lipid peroxidation inhibitory capacity (FRAP and Beta-Carotene Bleaching tests) were also determined. The Relative Antioxidant Capacity Index (RACI) was used to compare data obtained by different assays. Then, the inhibitory ability of samples was investigated against α-amylase and α-glucosidase enzymes involved in diabetes and against acetylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase enzymes considered as ...
BACKGROUND: Evidence from open label studies has indicated that patients with dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) and Parkinsons disease dementia (PDD) do better than those with other diagnoses, including Alzheimers disease (AD). In addition, those with dementia of moderate severity do better than those with mild severity. METHOD: Data collected for the monitoring of cholinesterase inhibitor prescribing in Oxfordshire over four years were supplemented with retrospective case notes inspection. Clinical response was defined as improvement sufficient to merit continuation of therapy. A mini-mental state examination (MMSE) improvement of 2 or more points was defined as a cognitive response. RESULTS: Medication was prescribed for 1322 patients and outcome data was available on 1250. Subsequently, 939 patients were reassessed after a mean of 120 days (SD 64.1). Medication was discontinued early by 311, mainly due to side effects. Of those who reached reassessment, 82% (771 of 939) were clinical responders

A quantitative method was developed for measuring the metabolic conversion of the dimethoxy ester of benzotriazine dithiophosphoric acid (DBD; Guthion) to an anticholinesterase agent by liver homogenates. The method involves aerobic incubation of DBD with liver homogenates fortified with diphosphopyridine nucleotide for 10 minutes at 38°C. The anticholinesterase action of the metabolite was used as a bioassay to measure the amount of metabolite produced by incubation with liver. The activity of the enzyme which converts DBD to an anticholinesterase agent was expressed in terms of arbitrary units of metabolite produced/5 mgm. of liver (wet weight)/hour.. Studies on the stability of the metabolite of DBD in the presence or liver homogenates demonstrated that loss of activity through enzymatic hydrolysis occurs at a rapid rate. Thus, when the metabolite was incubated with 10 mgm. of homogenized liver from rats, mice and guinea pigs in a final reaction volume of 3 ml. the loss of activity amounted ...
Since early January a new treatment for Alzheimers disease-the acetylcholinesterase inhibitor donepezil-has been available in the United States1 and last week was licensed in the UK. This and possibly other similar compounds will be introduced in the UK and other European countries shortly. Donepezil is the first drug to be licensed in the UK for Alzheimers disease, and, while its benefits still appear modest, it is easily administered and its side effect profile appears favourable.2 The availability of such drugs does, however, raise clinical and ethical issues.. In 30 week clinical trials a range of cholinesterase inhibitors have been shown to have broadly similar efficacy.2 3 These trials, designed to evaluate symptomatic treatment for Alzheimers disease, have used two outcome measures: a sensitive measure of cognitive function (ADAS-Cog5) and a global measure of change rated by a clinician independent of the study and blind to all other measures (CIBIC6). Results, on average, have been a ...

IQ Brain Function supplement was formulated for individuals that need to maintain over all brain function in terms of memory. This supplement is good for students, professionals as well as the elderly who are experiencing some cognitive loss or have Alzheimers disease. If you need some assistance with remembering names, addresses and phone numbers, this supplement is for you. IQ Brain combines Huperzine A, Phosphatidylcholine, Folic acid and amino acids to support memory and learning function. Huperzine A is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor which allows the neurotransmitter acetylcholine to linger in the synaptic cleft longer promoting short term memory. Phosphatidylcholine is an important phospholipid that is found in neuronal cell membranes and important for maintaining proper membrane function. It can also be used to supply choline for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.. ...

Drugs with acetylcholine-like effects (cholinomimetics) consist of 2 major subgroups on the basis of their mode of action (ie, whether they act directly at the acetylcholine receptor or indirectly through inhibition of cholinesterase). Drugs in the direct-acting subgroup are further subdivided on the basis of their spectrum of action (ie, whether they act on muscarinic or nicotinic cholinoceptors).. Acetylcholine may be considered the prototype that acts directly at both muscarinic and nicotinic receptors. Neostigmine is a prototype for the indirect-acting cholinesterase inhibitors.. ...

BACKGROUND: Previous Cochrane reviews have considered the use of cholinesterase inhibitors in both Parkinsons disease with dementia (PDD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). The clinical features of DLB and PDD have much in common and are distinguished primarily on the basis of whether or not parkinsonism precedes dementia by more than a year. Patients with both conditions have particularly severe deficits in cortical levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Therefore, blocking its breakdown using cholinesterase inhibitors may lead to clinical improvement. OBJECTIVES: To assess the efficacy, safety and tolerability of cholinesterase inhibitors in dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), Parkinsons disease with dementia (PDD), and cognitive impairment in Parkinsons disease falling short of dementia (CIND-PD) (considered as separate phenomena and also grouped together as Lewy body disease). SEARCH METHODS: The trials were identified from a search of ALOIS, the Specialised Register of the Cochrane
The central finding of this study is that acetylcholinesterase inhibition with a single dose of 30 mg of pyridostigmine acutely increased heart rate recovery at one minute after maximal exercise in patients with stable CHF when compared with placebo.. Pyridostigmine is a reversible acetylcholinesterase inhibitor used in the treatment of myasthenia gravis at typical daily doses ranging from 240-480 mg. The pharmacological action of pyridostigmine is attributable to inhibition of the enzymatic breakdown of acetylcholine and consequent potentiation of cholinergic neurotransmission. The effects of pyridostigmine on cardiovascular function have been previously reported in normal subjects and patients with coronary artery disease and hypertension. Administration of single doses of 30-45 mg of pyridostigmine was associated with a 28% reduction in serum cholinesterase activity and decrease in resting heart rate of 5-7 beats/min in normal subjects and patients with cardiovascular disease.20-22 ...
BACKGROUND: Memantine is licensed for moderate-to-severe Alzheimers disease (AD). National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidance does not recommend the use of memantine in combination with cholinesterase inhibitors (acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (AChEI)). The underpinning meta-analysis was disputed by the manufacturer. OBJECTIVES: To compare the efficacy of AChEI monotherapy with combination memantine and AChEI therapy in patients with moderate-to-severe AD and to examine the impact of including unpublished data on the results. DESIGN: Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials. DATA SOURCES: The Cochrane Dementia Group trial register, ALOIS, searched for the last time on 3 May 2011. DATA SYNTHESIS: Data from four domains (clinical global, cognition, function, behaviour and mood) were pooled. Sensitivity analyses examined the impact on the NICE-commissioned meta-analysis of restricting data to patients with moderate-to-severe AD and of including an unpublished
Cholinesterase activity in blood of laboratory rats was monitored. Rats were intoxicated with paraoxon at dosis of 0 - 65 - 125 - 170 - 250 - 500 nmol. The 250 nmol dose was found to be the LD50. An electrochemical sensor was found useful to provide information about cholinesterase activity. The decrease of cholinesterase activity was correlated to intoxication symptoms and mortality level. It was found that the symptoms of intoxication are not observed while at least 50% of cholinesterase activity in blood remains. The minimal cholinesterase activity essential to survival is around 10%, when compared with the initial state. No changes in levels of low moleculary weight antioxidants were observed.

The results of 10 randomized, double blind, placebo controlled trials demonstrate that treatment for 6 months, with donepezil, galantamine or rivastigmine at the recommended dose for people with mild, moderate or severe dementia due to Alzheimers disease produced improvements in cognitive function, on average -2.37 points (95%CI -2.73 to -2.02, p,0.00001), in the midrange of the 70 point ADAS-Cog Scale. Study clinicians rated global clinical state more positively in treated patients. Benefits of treatment were also seen on measures of activities of daily living and behaviour. None of these treatment effects are large.. The effects are similar for patients with severe dementia, although there is very little evidence, from only two trials.. More patients leave ChEI treatment groups, (29%), than leave the placebo groups (18%).. There is evidence of more adverse events in total in the patients treated with a ChEI than with placebo. Although many types of adverse event were reported, nausea, ...

The reason why galantamine is successful in treatment of various health issues is because it does not just block the acetylcholinesterase enzyme but also modulate the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAchR) the way they become more sensitive to acetylcholine. There is some difference between galantamine and huperzine A what is a more potent acetylcholinesterase inhibitor but doesnt posses the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor modulating properties.. Galantamine is most commonly used for Alzheimers disease and thats why it is recognized worldwide. However there are also other uses - for various myopathies and issues where the nervous system dysfunction is suspected (erectile dysfunction).. Some people are using it along with choline to highly increase the chances of lucid dreaming and to enhance the memory and learning abilities.. Great uses found galantamine in treating the poliomyelitis and it was very popular medicine used by the east european herbalists who were making the tea from the ...
Inhibition of plasma cholinesterase by three methylfluorophosphonates (MFF), sarin, soman and cyclosin, and by the products of their hydrolysis and alcoholysis was examined. Inhibition by phosphonic acids and by methyl esters derived from MFF was purely competitive while that by MFF was irreversible. The rate of phosphorylation of cholinesterase by MFF differs, depending on the structure of the alkoxy group in the MFF and decreases in the sequence soman-sarin-cyclosin. The affinity values of MFF, phosphonic acids and methyl esters of phosphonic acid for cholinesterase are comparable. The ,i,in vitro,/i, kinetic parameters suggest that plasma cholinesterase might act as a natural detoxicating agent in cases of poisoning with the above inhibitors of acetylcholinesterase. ...

The cholinesterase inhibitors reduce synaptic breakdown of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, enhancing cholinergic transmission. They were originally developed in response to basic research showing a cholinergic deficit in patients with AD dementia. Subsequent work suggests that cerebrovascular injury also damages cholinergic pathways.20 Three cholinesterase inhibitors were tested in phase 3 trials of patients with vascular dementia or mixed dementia-donepezil,21, 22, 23 galantamine,24, 25 and rivastigmine26-and the results have been pooled and analyzed by the Cochrane collaboration.27, 28, 29 All of the phase 3 RCTs were 6 months in duration, and NINDS‐AIREN (National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and the Association Internationale pour la Recherche et lEnseignement en Neurosciences) criteria30 were used to diagnose vascular dementia. All trials used the Alzheimers Disease Assessment Scale‐Cognitive (ADAS‐Cog), or variants incorporating additional tests of executive ...

Two novel families of dual binding site acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitors have been developed, consisting of a tacrine or 6-chlorotacrine unit as the active site interacting moiety, either the 5,6-dimethoxy-2-[(4-piperidinyl)methyl]-1-indanone fragment of donepezil (or the indane derivative thereof) or a 5-phenylpyrano[3,2-c]quinoline system, reminiscent to the tryciclic core of propidium, as the peripheral site interacting unit, and a linker of suitable length as to allow the simultaneous binding at both sites. These hybrid compounds are all potent and selective inhibitors of human AChE, and more interestingly, are able to interfere in vitro both formation and aggregation of the beta-amyloid peptide, the latter effects endowing these compounds with the potential to modify Alzheimers disease progression ...
Due to the diversity of biological activities that can be found in aquatic ecosystems, marine metabolites have been an active area of drug discovery for the last 30 years. Marine metabolites have been found to inhibit a number of enzymes important in the treatment of human disease. Here, we focus on marine metabolites that inhibit the enzyme acetylcholinesterase, which is the cellular target for treatment of early-stage Alzheimers disease. Currently, development of anticholinesterase drugs with improved potency, and drugs that act as dual acetylcholinesterase and amyloid-β aggregation inhibitors, are being sought to treat Alzheimers disease. Seven classes of marine metabolites are reported to possess anti-cholinesterase activity. We compared these metabolites to clinically-used acetylcholinesterase inhibitors having known mechanisms of inhibition. We performed a docking simulation and compared them to published experimental data for each metabolite to determine the most likely mechanism of
Cholinesterases are a family of enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of neurotransmitter acetylcholine. There are two types of cholinesterases, acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE), which differ in their distribution in the body. Currently, cholinesterase inhibitors (ChEI) represent the treatment of choice for Alzheimer´s disease (AD). In this paper, we report the synthesis and inhibitory effect on both enzymes of four new peptides structurally related to P1-Hp-1971 (amphibian skin peptide found in our previous work. Sequence: TKPTLLGLPLGAGPAAGPGKR-NH2). The bioassay data and cytotoxicity test show that some of the compounds possess a significant AChE and BChE inhibition and no toxic effect. The present work demonstrates that diminution of the size of the original peptide could potentially result in new compounds with significant cholinesterase inhibition activity, although it appears that there is an optimal size for the sequence. We also conducted an exhaustive ...
In biochemistry, a cholinesterase or choline esterase is an esterase that lyses choline-based esters, several of which serve as neurotransmitters. Thus, it is either of two enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of these cholinergic neurotransmitters, such as breaking acetylcholine into choline and acetic acid. These reactions are necessary to allow a cholinergic neuron to return to its resting state after activation. For example, in muscle contraction, acetylcholine at a neuromuscular junction triggers a contraction; but for the muscle to relax afterward, rather than remaining locked in a tense state, the acetylcholine must be broken down by a choline esterase. The main type for that purpose is acetylcholinesterase (also called choline esterase I or erythrocyte cholinesterase); it is found mainly in chemical synapses and red blood cell membranes. The other type is butyrylcholinesterase (also called choline esterase II or plasma cholinesterase); it is found mainly in the blood plasma. The two ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Galantamine and donepezil attenuate pharmacologically induced deficits in prepulse inhibition in rats. AU - Hohnadel, Elizabeth. AU - Bouchard, Kristy. AU - Terry, Alvin V. PY - 2007/2/1. Y1 - 2007/2/1. N2 - Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AChEIs) are currently being evaluated as adjunctive therapy for the cognitive dysfunction of schizophrenia. This core symptom of schizophrenia has often been attributed to impaired attention and abnormal sensory motor gating, features that are also found in Huntingtons Disease, autism, and several other psychiatric and neurological disorders. The ability to improve prepulse inhibition (PPI) of the acoustic startle response may predict the efficacy of compounds as cognitive enhancers. In this study, PPI was disrupted in Wistar rats in three pharmacologic models: dopamine receptor agonism by apomorphine, NMDA receptor antagonism by MK801, or muscarinic acetylcholine receptor antagonism by scopolamine. We then evaluated the commonly used AChEIs, ...

Muscle relaxation caused by a muscle relaxant drug can be terminated spontaneously by diffusion, redistribution, metabolism, and excretion or via pharmacological antagonism using specific reversal agents known as cholinesterase inhibitors. Acetylcholinesterase is an enzyme found at the motor end plate. It functions by breaking down and reducing the amount of acetylcholine (ACh) at the nerve terminal. By inhibiting acetylcholinesterase, cholinesterase inhibitors indirectly increase the amount of ACh molecules that are available to compete with the nondepolarizing muscle relaxant for the binding sites of the ACh receptors. ...
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The exposure to toxic organophosphate (OP) insecticides and chemical warfare agents continues to endanger many of the worlds population. One potentially dire consequence of such exposure is the prolonged impairment of cognitive function. Mechanistic studies of OPs to date have focused primarily the effects of overtly toxic doses, however, little is known about the cellular and behavioral consequences of repeated exposure to doses of these agents that produce no overt signs of acute toxicity (i.e., subthreshold doses). This issue is very important since detectible levels of OPs can remain in the environment for extended periods. Accordingly, our long-term goal is further elucidate OP mechanisms such that more effective therapeutic strategies can be developed for patients suffering from exposure. The objective of this application is to identify specific relationships between cellular and biochemical manifestations of repeated, subthreshold exposures to OPs and ...
Rivastigmine shows linear pharmacokinetics up to 3 mg twice a day but is nonlinear at higher doses. Doubling the dose from 3 mg to 6 mg twice a day results in a 3-fold increase in AUC. The elimination half-life is about 1.5 hours, with most elimination as metabolites via the urine.. Absorption Rivastigmine is rapidly and completely absorbed. Peak plasma concentrations are reached in approximately 1 hour. Absolute bioavailability after a 3-mg dose is about 36%. Administration of rivastigmine tartrate with food delays absorption (tmax) by 90 minutes lowers Cmax by approximately 30% and increases AUC by approximately 30%.. Distribution Rivastigmine is weakly bound to plasma proteins (approximately 40%) over the therapeutic range. It readily crosses the blood-brain barrier, reaching CSF peak concentrations in 1.4 to 2.6 hours. It has an apparent volume of distribution in the range of 1.8 to 2.7 L/kg.. Metabolism Rivastigmine is rapidly and extensively metabolized, primarily via ...
The pharmacokinetics of galantamine are linear over a dose range of 8 mg to 32 mg/day. Absorption and Distribution Galantamine is absorbed with time to peak concentration of about 1 hour. The absolute bioavailability of galantamine is about 90%. The bioavailability of the tablet formulation was the same as the bioavailability of the oral solution formulation. Food did not affect the AUC of galantamine, but Cmax was decreased by 25% and Tmax was delayed by 1.5 hours, when galantamine was administered with food. The mean volume of distribution of galantamine is 175 L. The plasma protein binding of galantamine is 18% at therapeutically relevant concentrations. In whole blood, galantamine is mainly distributed to blood cells (52.7%). The blood to plasma concentration ratio of galantamine is 1.2. Metabolism and Elimination Galantamine is metabolized by hepatic cytochrome P450 enzymes, glucuronidated, and excreted unchanged in the urine. In vitro studies indicate that cytochrome CYP2D6 and CYP3A4 were ...

Malathion is a member of the organophosphate chemical family and is one of the least toxic pesticides in the group. Malathion is a cholinesterase inhibitor. Malathion by itself is not a strong cholinesterase inhibitor. It requires activation by conversion to its oxygen analog, malaoxon. Mosquitoes possess this enzyme. However, humans and other mammals possess a second enzyme which rapidly metabolizes malathion and malaoxon into non-active diacids. This make the chemical non-toxic to humans. Mosquitoes do not possess this second enzyme which makes it toxic to them. Malatahion is widely used in agriculture; by commercial and industrial and institutional organizations; and in mosquito abatement programs. It breaks down rapidly in the environment and does not accumulate in soil, water, or air. It is one of the most widely tested of the pesticides. It is non-carcinogenic, non-teratogenic, and non-mutagenic. ...
Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) is a tetrameric serine hydrolase that rapidly catalyzes the hydrolysis of acetylcholine to acetate and choline. The breakdown of acetylcholine is critical for the termination of impulse transmissions at cholinergic synapses within the nervous system. Progressive loss of cholinergic neurons in Alzheimers disease (AD) patients results in severe memory loss and impairment of cognitive function. AChE inhibitors are a strategic approach to symptomatic treatment for AD, since AChE inhibitors increase the levels of acetylcholine in the synapse, thereby enhancing cholinergic activity in the affected regions of the brain. AChE also plays an important role in agriculture since modifications in AChE can confer resistance to pesticides. AChE is a key component in many snake venoms, and AChE staining is routinely used for the initial diagnosis of Hirschsprungs disease, a congenital disorder caused by the absence of ganglion cells in the distal colon ...

Dr Douglas Caruana, who carried out the experiments, stated: Disruptions in cholinergic signaling in the prefrontal cortex are known to affect how the mind encodes enduring associations between objects and areas, and a depletion of brain acetylcholine levels in the cortex can be a traditional hallmark of Alzheimers dementia. Professor Bashir added: Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors will be the most widely used medication to treat individuals with Alzheimers dementia and the improvement of synaptic plasticity by acetylcholinesterase inhibition that we now demonstrate may be a way in which these drugs provide clinical efficacy.In addition, infections invariably happen in patients with urinary catheters. All invasive procedures carry the risk of organ damage and can increase health care costs due to medical interventions and longer hospital stays. The Abreu btt 700 system instead relies upon continuous, noninvasive temperature measurement that enables clinicians to get rid of these complications ...
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved two classes of drugs to treat cognitive symptoms of Alzheimers disease. The first Alzheimer medications to be approved were cholinesterase (KOH luh NES ter ays) inhibitors. Three of these drugs are commonly prescribed: donepezil (Aricept®), approved in 1996; rivastigmine (Exelon®), approved in 2000; and galantamine (approved in 2001 under the trade name Reminyl® and renamed Razadyne® in 2005). Tacrine (Cognex®), the first cholinesterase inhibitor, was approved in 1993 but is rarely prescribed today because of associated side effects, including possible liver damage.. All of these drugs are designed to prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine (pronounced a SEA til KOH lean), a chemical messenger in the brain that is important for memory and other thinking skills. The drugs work to keep levels of the chemical messenger high, even while the cells that produce the messenger continue to become damaged or die. About half of the people who ...

Ganstigmine (CHF2819) is a novel, orally active acetylcholinesterase inhibitor that induces a stimulation of brain cholinergic transmission. In vivo studies show that, in rat prefrontal cortex, extracellular acetylcholine (ACh) concentrations are significantly increased either after local (1 and 10M) or oral (1.5 and 3 mg/kg) administration. Moreover, repeated oral treatment (six consecutive days; 3 mg/kg) with ganstigmine significantly increases basal extracellular concentrations of ACh in rat prefrontal cortex. Then, acute ganstigmine administration induces a significant increase in extracellular ACh concentrations (actual values) with respect to the last sample in ganstigmine-treated rats. Concentrations of serotonin (5-HT) and noradrenaline (NA) are not affected by any oral dose of ganstigmine (1.5 and 3 mg/kg) used. Moreover, levels of dopamine (DA) and metabolites are not modified either. Basal extracellular concentrations of 5-HT, NA, DA and metabolites are not affected by repeated (six ...

The researchers) demonstrate that the active component of marijuana, Delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), competitively inhibits the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE) as well as prevents AChE-induced amyloid beta-peptide (Abeta) aggregation, the key pathological marker of Alzheimers disease. Computational modeling of the THC-AChE interaction revealed that THC binds in the peripheral anionic site of AChE, the critical region involved in amyloidgenesis. Compared to currently approved drugs prescribed for the treatment of Alzheimers disease, THC is a considerably superior inhibitor of Abeta aggregation, and this study provides a previously unrecognized molecular mechanism through which cannabinoid molecules may directly impact the progression of this debilitating disease. ...
Now, about its overproduction: I dont really think it would make that much of a difference. The fact this(i think), there is already enough cholinesterase in the synaptic cleft to quickly degrade any molecules of acetylcholine that are not attached to the receptor. In an extreme cases, the cholinesterase would simply block the nerve impulse, having similar effects to those of specific inhibitors of the nicotinic and muscarinic acetylcholine receptors ...

This important pharmaceutical company-supported study of rivastigmine is consistent with previous studies because it emphasizes cognitive status outcomes and also assesses global function. Unfortunately, none of the outcome measures is familiar to clinicians and validation data were not provided. Behavioral disturbances and neuropsychiatric symptoms, often a major concern to caregivers, were not directly assessed. The cognitive improvements with rivastigmine, as with previous studies of donepezil (1) and ginkgo biloba (2), are modest (in this study, a 1.6-point improvement on the ADAS-cog at 26 wk). Clinicians noted small improvements in the CIBIC scale, a measure of global function, and caregivers reported small improvements in the PDS. A 4-point difference on the ADAS-cog is judged to be clinically relevant. Compared with placebo, only 8% more patients in the higher-dose group showed this change. As the Table indicates, the number needed to treat (NNT) for improvement in global function with ...

Extensive evidence concerning cholinergic modulation of several cognitive functions supports an important role of acetylcholine (ACh) in arousal, attention, learning, and memory formation (Gold, 2003; Sarter et al., 2003). In Alzheimers disease, enhancing cerebral ACh level has been shown to improve impaired learning and memory functions caused by cholinergic dysfunction. With regard to its specific functional properties, neurophysiological data from animal studies reveal dual neuromodulatory effects of ACh on cortical excitability and synaptic plasticity (Rasmusson, 2000; Gu, 2002). Cholinergic blockade has been shown to reduce long-term potentiation (LTP), whereas cholinergic agonists enhance LTP in the hippocampus, piriform cortex, and neocortex (Blitzer et al., 1990; Brocher et al., 1992; Hasselmo and Barkai, 1995). In humans, use-dependent plasticity of the motor cortex is facilitated by an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor and blocked by a cholinergic antagonist (Sawaki et al., 2002; ...

In 2016, Rachelle Doody switched from academia to industry when she left Baylor College of Medicine for Roche/Genentech in Basel, Switzerland. At this years Clinical Trials on Alzheimers Conference, held November 1-4 in Boston, Doody used a keynote address to call for more balanced reporting of clinical trials in Alzheimers disease, and for more optimism all around.. After four cholinesterase inhibitor drugs were approved between 1993 and 2001, AD trials research entered a dry spell that was tallied and highlighted recently in a review article. In it, the authors counted 413 trials of 244 unique compounds tested between 2002 and 2012, of which only Namenda-an old drug previously in use in Europe-garnered FDA approval (Cummings et al., 2014). This amounted to an overall failure rate of 99.6 percent, which was widely reported in the press and indeed keeps haunting the field of AD research. "The media really keyed in on that 99.6 percent number," Doody told the CTAD audience. She quoted Fox ...

BACKGROUND: Alzheimers disease (AD) is the commonest cause of dementia. Cholinesterase inhibitors, such as donepezil, are the drug class with the best evidence of efficacy, licensed for mild to moderate AD, while the glutamate antagonist memantine has been widely prescribed, often in the later stages of AD. Memantine is licensed for moderate to severe dementia in AD but is not recommended by the England and Wales National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence. However, there is little evidence to guide clinicians as to what to prescribe as AD advances; in particular, what to do as the condition progresses from moderate to severe. Options include continuing cholinesterase inhibitors irrespective of decline, adding memantine to cholinesterase inhibitors, or prescribing memantine instead of cholinesterase inhibitors. The aim of this trial is to establish the most effective drug option for people with AD who are progressing from moderate to severe dementia despite treatment with donepezil. METHOD:
Pulmonarins A and B are two new dibrominated marine acetylcholinesterase inhibitors that were isolated and characterized from the sub-Arctic ascidian Synoicum pulmonaria collected off the Norwegian coast. The structures of natural pulmonarins A and B were tentatively elucidated by spectroscopic methods and later verified by comparison with synthetically prepared material. Both pulmonarins A and B displayed reversible, noncompetitive acetylcholinesterase inhibition comparable to several known natural acetylcholinesterase inhibitiors. Pulmonarin B was the strongest inhibitor, with an inhibition constant (Ki) of 20 μM. In addition to reversible, noncompetitive acetylcholinesterase inhibition, the compounds displayed weak antibacterial activity but no cytotoxicity or other investigated bioactivities.. ...

Nerve agents are a class of phosphorus-containing organic chemicals (organophosphates) that disrupt the mechanisms by which nerves transfer messages to organs. The disruption is caused by blocking acetylcholinesterase, an enzyme that catalyzes the breakdown of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter. Poisoning by a nerve agent leads to contraction of pupils, profuse salivation, convulsions, involuntary urination and defecation, and death by asphyxiation due to a loss of control of the respiratory muscles. Some nerve agents are readily vaporized or aerosolized, and the primary portal of entry into the body is the respiratory system. Nerve agents can also be absorbed through the skin, requiring that those likely to be subjected to such agents wear a full body suit in addition to a respirator. As their name suggests, nerve agents attack the nervous system of the human body. All such agents function the same way: by inhibiting the enzyme acetylcholinesterase, which is responsible for the breakdown of ...
Cholinesterase (ChE) activity was used as a biomarker for assessing exposure of common carp (Cyprinus carpio) to organophosphate and carbamate insecticides from irrigated agricultural waters. Carp were collected from a lake (Royal Lake) that receives most of its water from irrigation return flows and from a reference lake (Billy Clapp Lake) outside of the irrigation system. Results indicated that the mean whole-brain ChE activity of carp from Royal Lake (3.47 μmol/min/g tissue) was 34.2% less than that of carp from Billy Clapp Lake (5.27 μmol/min/g tissue) (p = 0.003). The depressed ChE activity in brain tissue of Royal Lake carp was in response to ChE-inhibiting insecticides detected in water samples in the weeks prior to tissue sampling; the most frequently detected insecticides included chlorpyrifos, azinphos-methyl, carbaryl, and ethoprop. Neither sex nor size appears to be a covariable in the analysis; ChE activity was not correlated with fish length or weight...
Evaluation of essential oils from Boswellia sacra and Teucrium mascatense against acetyl cholinesterase enzyme and urease enzyme
Australian farmers and their workers are exposed to a wide variety of pesticides. Organophosphate (OP) insecticides are a widely used class of pesticide used for animal husbandry practices (Naphthalophos for sheep dipping, jetting and drench), crop production for pest control (Dimethoate) and in public health (Maldison for head lice). Acute poisonings with this class of insecticide are reported among agricultural workers and children around the globe, due to the inhibition of acetylcholinesterase (AChE). Less is known about chronic exposures. Regular monitoring of erythrocyte AChE will enable farmers to identify potential exposure to organophosphate insecticides and take action to reduce exposures and improve their health and safety practices. This study aims to assess and improve the integration of AChE monitoring into routine point of care health clinics, and provide farming and non-farming people with a link between their AChE activity and their household chemical and agrichemical use.
