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 ...
But after this step the cholinesterase is irreversibly inhibited. The irreversible phosphorylation of the cholinesterase occurs in two steps. This results in continuous activation of acetylcholine receptors, which leads to the acute symptoms of TEPP poisoning. … Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AchEI), like donepezil, galantamine and rivastigmine are the only drugs - together with memantine (glutamate receptor antagonist) - which obtained the indication for the symptomatic treatment of Alzheimer disease, but are also used for … Then the second step takes place. More than 7100 monographs are provided for prescription and over-the-counter drugs, as well as for corresponding brand-name drugs… Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitors Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AChEI) bind to acetylcholinesterase (Achase) so it will prevent the enzyme from breaking down ACh. [6], The time dependent irreversible inhibition of the cholinesterase can be described by the following equation.[6]. This increases levels ...
Despite recognition that cholinesterase inhibitors can provide clinical benefits for patients with Alzheimers disease (AD), the average durations of treatment and beneficial effects are not optimal in all cases. This may be due to disappointing efficacy or poor tolerability of the initial treatment, as well as secondary efficacy failure or adverse effects emerging during the maintenance phase. In such cases, pharmacological differences between available cholinesterase inhibitors provide a good rationale to switch to another drug in the same class. The pharmacological properties of rivastigmine, a dual inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase, and donepezil and galantamine, two AChE-selective inhibitors, are reviewed. Rivastigmine is reported to show brain- and brain region-selectivity. Donepezil appeared to be more selective for central than peripheral enzymes in rats. Galantamine and donepezil have also been shown to exert nicotinic receptor allosteric modulation in ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Treatment of Alzheimers disease with acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. T2 - Bridging the gap between evidence and practice. AU - Frisoni, Giovanni B.. PY - 2001. Y1 - 2001. N2 - Views on drug therapy with acetylcholinesterase inhibitors of the cognitive symptoms of Alzheimers disease are not uniform, varying from excitement at the possibility of significantly improving the personal and social burden of the disease to skeptical and nihilistic attitudes. Clinical practice from generous prescription to evidence-based guidelines and advising much stricter rules, mirror these attitudes. The epidemiological and clinical relevance of the issue requires understanding of the factors responsible for such discrepancies. Randomized clinical trials have only been able to address a few of the many variables that can affect the response to acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. The effect on behavioral symptoms, severe Alzheimers dementia, and non-Alzheimers forms of degenerative dementia need to ...
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

Research Area (Doctoral):. Alzheimers disease is the leading cause of dementia with an estimated cost to the economy of $259 billion in the USA in 2017 alone. The disease is multifaceted and a clear molecular genesis or cause of the disease has to date not been unambiguously proven. To date several hypotheses to target drug development have been proposed including the cholinergic, amyloid-beta, tau, calcium channel and inflammation hypotheses. Divans research focuses on the development of novel duel-inhibitors targeting the inhibition of acetyl choline clearance and aggregation of amyloid-beta through the inhibition of the catalytic triad and peripheral anionic site of acetyl cholinesterase. Research highlights include the development of structural analogues of the cholinesterase inhibitor Donepezil displaying nano-molar activity against acetylcholinesterase with no cytotoxicity against neuroblastoma cell lines and the development of methodologies for the synthesis of tri- and tetracyclic ...
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

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 ...

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
14.1 Mild to Moderate Alzheimers Disease. The effectiveness of donepezil hydrochloride as a treatment for mild to moderate Alzheimers disease is demonstrated by the results of two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical investigations in patients with Alzheimers disease (diagnosed by NINCDS and DSM III-R criteria, Mini-Mental State Examination ≥ 10 and ≤ 26 and Clinical Dementia Rating of 1 or 2). The mean age of patients participating in donepezil hydrochloride trials was 73 years with a range of 50 to 94. Approximately 62% of patients were women and 38% were men. The racial distribution was white 95%, black 3% and other races 2%.. The higher dose of 10 mg did not provide a statistically significantly greater clinical benefit than 5 mg. There is a suggestion, however, based upon order of group mean scores and dose trend analyses of data from these clinical trials, that a daily dose of 10 mg of donepezil hydrochloride might provide additional benefit for some patients. ...
OBJECTIVE: To assess the cost effectiveness of cholinesterase inhibitor (ChEI) treatment in patients with Alzheimers disease (AD) and Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). METHOD: We used 4-month open label follow-up data from routine memory clinic patients. There were 852 patients with AD and 112 with DLB. We applied three predictive models to estimate clinical and economic outcomes at five years, comparing AD and DLB patients with hypothetical untreated controls. RESULTS: The mean improvement in MMSE in 852 AD patients was 0.57 (SD 3.4) at 4 months, and in the subgroup with baseline MMSE of 10-20 (moderate) was 1.6 (SD 3.7). Overall, the 112 DLB patients improved by 1.4 (SD 3.7). DLB patients with an MMSE 10-20 improved by 3.1 (SD 4.5) points. These efficacy data were input into the SHTAC, microsimulation and Markov models and produced estimated costs per QALY gained (CQG) for all AD of pound194,066, pound67,904 and pound123,935 respectively. In comparison, the CQGs for all DLB were pound46,794, pound2
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, ...
A cholinesterase inhibitor (or anticholinesterase) suppresses the action of the enzyme. Because of its essential function, chemicals that interfere with the action of cholinesterase are potent neurotoxins, causing excessive salivation and eye-watering in low doses, followed by muscle spasms and ultimately death (examples are some snake venoms, and the nerve gases sarin and VX). One counteracting medication is pralidoxime. The so-called nerve gases and many substances used in insecticides have been shown to act by combining with a residue of serine in the active site of acetylcholine esterase, inhibiting the enzyme completely. The enzyme acetylcholine esterase breaks down the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is released at nerve and muscle junctions, in order to allow the muscle or organ to relax. The result of acetylcholine esterase inhibition is that acetylcholine builds up and continues to act so that any nerve impulses are continually transmitted and muscle contractions do not stop. ...

Malathion is an organophosphorous compound that inhibits cholinesterase enzyme activity. Malathion contains an interesting phosphinothioyl-thio ester as its active moiety where modification of acetylcholinesterase occurs. The action of Malathion on acetylcholinesterase has been correlated to prolonged modulation of the functioning of the cutaneous vasculature. Malathion is an organophosphate insecticide of relatively low human toxicity.
An acetylcholinesterase inhibitor such as donepezil (oral, funded), rivastigmine (transdermal patches funded with Special Authority approval - see: Rivastigmine patch brand change, oral not funded) or galantamine (oral, not funded) may be considered in people with Alzheimers-type dementia, vascular dementia where subcortical ischaemic changes are prominent and dementia associated with Parkinsons disease/Dementia with Lewy Bodies (unapproved indication). Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors should not be prescribed to people with mild cognitive impairment.2. The treatment effects of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors are generally modest; not all patients will respond to treatment and it is not possible to predict response. There is no evidence that acetylcholinesterase inhibitors prevent the progression of dementia, however, some people may have a temporary improvement in cognition and functionality. A meta-analysis of 43 RCTs including over 16,000 people with Alzheimers disease reported that ...
Date Published: May 31, 2019. Publisher: Public Library of Science. Author(s): Devashree N. Patil, Sushama A. Patil, Srinivas Sistla, Jyoti P. Jadhav, David A. Lightfoot.. http://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0215291. Abstract. Among neurodegenerative diseases, Alzheimers disease (AD) is one of the most grievous disease. The oldest cholinergic hypothesis is used to elevate the level of cognitive impairment and acetylcholinesterase (AChE) comprises the major targeted enzyme in AD. Thus, acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AChEI) constitutes the essential remedy for the treatment of AD. The study aims to evaluate the interactions between natural molecules and AChE by Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR). The molecules like alkaloids, polyphenols and substrates of AChE have been considered for the study with a major emphasis on affinity and kinetics. To better understand the activity of small molecules, the investigation is supported by both experimental and theoretical approach such as fluorescence, ...

Study characteristics We only included evidence from randomised controlled trials (RCTs) in the review. In RCTs, participants are assigned to groups by chance. This makes it more likely that any changes seen can be attributed to the treatments under study rather than to other possible causes.. We found only one RCT for the treatment of myasthenia gravis. The participants received either the study drug or placebo for the first period of the trial. They then received the other treatment for the second period of the trial. For example, if a person had study drug in the first period they received placebo for the second period. If they had placebo for the first period, they received study drug for the second period. This type of study is called a cross-over trial.. The trial included 10 people with myasthenia gravis. In three people the condition affected only their eyes. In seven people it affected the body more widely. The trial compared neostigmine (an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor) given via ...

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. ...

Pharmacokinetics of donepezil are linear over a dose range of 1 to 10 mg given once daily. The rate and extent of absorption of donepezil hydrochloridetablets are not influenced by food.. The elimination half life of donepezil is about 70 hours, and the mean apparent plasma clearance (Cl/F) is 0.13 to 0.19 L/hr/kg. Following multiple dose administration, donepezil accumulates in plasma by 4 to 7 fold, and steady state is reached within 15 days. The steady state volume of distribution is 12 to 16 L/kg. Donepezil is approximately 96% bound to human plasma proteins, mainly to albumins (about 75%) and alpha1 - acid glycoprotein (about 21%) over the concentration range of 2 to 1000 ng/mL.. Donepezil is both excreted in the urine intact and extensively metabolized to four major metabolites, two of which are known to be active, and a number of minor metabolites, not all of which have been identified. Donepezil is metabolized by CYP 450 isoenzymes 2D6 and 3A4 and undergoes glucuronidation. Following ...
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 ...

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 ...

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. ...
Cholinesterase inhibitors (ChE-Is) are the standard for the therapy of AD associated disorders and are the only class of approved drugs by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Additionally, acetylcholinesterase (AChE) is the target for many Alzheimer’s dementia drugs which block the function of AChE but have some side effects. Therefore, in this paper, an attempt was made to elucidate cholinesterase inhibition potential of secondary metabolite from |i |Cannabis|/i| plant which has negligible or no side effect. Molecular docking of 500 herbal compounds, against AChE, was performed using Autodock 4.2 as per the standard protocols. Molecular dynamics simulations have also been carried out to check stability of binding complex in water for 1000 ps. Our molecular docking and simulation have predicted high binding affinity of secondary metabolite (|svg xmlns:xlink=http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink xmlns=http://www.w3.org/2000/svg style=vertical-align:-3.40876pt id=M1 height=12.5291pt
BACKGROUND: Alzheimers disease (AD) is the major age-related progressive neurodegenerative disorder. The brain of AD patients suffers from loss of cholinergic neurons and decreased number of synapses [1]. AD is caused by an imbalance between Aβ production and clearance, resulting in increased amount of Aβ in various forms [2]. Reduction of Aβ production and increasing clearance of Aβ pathogenic forms are key targets in the development of potential therapeutic agents for AD treatment. Unfortunately, only nosotropic approaches for treatment of AD are currently effective in humans. These approaches mainly focus on the inhibition of brain acetyl-cholinesterase (AChE) to increase lifetime of cerebral acetylcholine [3]. It is important to emphasize that AChE itself promotes the formation of Aβ fibrils in vitro and Aβ plaques in the cerebral cortex of transgenic mouse models of AD [4]. This property of AChE results from interaction between Aβ and the peripheral anionic site of the enzyme (PAS) ...
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 ...
