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 ...

Abstract:This paper describes preparation and in vitro evaluation of 19 compounds related to the selective experimental cholinesterase inhibitor BW284c51. The novel compounds were prepared as fragments of parent molecule BW284c51 and evaluated on the model of human recombinant acetylcholinesterase and human plasmatic butyrylcholinesterase. The IC50 values of the prepared compounds were compared to the parent molecule BW284c51. None of the compounds was superior to the parent drug, but two BW284c51 fragments showed promising hAChE inhibition in ...
Patients. 81 302 community-dwelling persons ≥ 66 years of age (mean age 80 y, 62% women) who had been diagnosed with dementia and had not been hospitalized for syncope in the previous year. 19 803 patients (drug cohort) were new users of cholinesterase inhibitors (donepezil, galantamine, or rivastigmine), and 61 499 patients (control cohort) had not received a prescription for a cholinesterase inhibitor in the previous year. The control cohort was matched to the drug cohort by year and quarter of cohort entry. ...
Background: Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AChEIs) are widely used to delay cognitive decline in Alzheimers disease. Observational studies in routine clinical practice have shown cognitive improvement in some groups of patients receiving these agents but longitudinal trajectories before and after AChEI initiation have not previously been considered. Objectives: To compare trajectories of cognitive function before and after AChEI initiation and investigate predictors of these differences. Method: A retrospective longitudinal study was constructed using data from 2460 patients who received AChEIs and who had routine data on cognitive function (Mini-Mental State Examination; MMSE) before and after AChEI initiation. Longitudinal MMSE change was modelled using three-piece linear mixed models with the following segments: 0-12 months prior to AChEI initiation, 0-6 months and 6-36 months after initiation. Results: MMSE decline was reversed (in that the slope was improved by an average 4.2 units per ...

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
Photochromic cholinesterase inhibitors were obtained from cis-1,2-α-dithienylethene-based compounds by incorporating one or two aminopolymethylene tacrine groups. All target compounds are potent acetyl- (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) inhibitors in the nanomolar concentration range. Compound 11b bearing an octylene linker exhibited interactions with both the catalytic active site (CAS) and the peripheral anionic site (PAS) of AChE. Yet upon irradiation with light, the mechanism of interaction varied from one photochromic form to another, which was investigated by kinetic studies and proved "photoswitchable". The AChE-induced β-amyloid (Aβ) aggregation assay gave further experimental support to this finding: Aβ1-40 aggregation catalyzed by the PAS of AChE might be inhibited by compound 11b in a concentration-dependent manner and seems to occur only with one photochromic form. Computational docking studies provided potential binding modes of the compound. Docking studies and molecular ...

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
Concomitant use of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AChEIs) is allowed but not required. Patients who are currently taking AChEIs are eligible as long as they have been using a stable dose for at least 3 months prior to screening and no change is foreseen for the duration of the study. This dose must be consistent with the product label in the concerned country. Patients who are not currently taking AChEIs but have taken them in the past are also eligible if AChEIs were stopped at least 3 months prior to screening ...

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, ...
