The term [Unfavorable Study] as used is exemplified by Molloy et al.(28) They concluded, "THA has no clinically important benefits in Alzheimers disease and is associated with appreciable toxic effects." The flaws listed in Table 1 show how this erroneous conclusion was reached. The dose of THA (tacrine hydrochloride) was beyond not adequate. The dose [Adequate Tacrine] was wrong. The authors used apparently a single daily dose of 50, 75, or 100 mg for two weeks. In our studies the maximum dose was 50 mg q 6 hours (200 mg/day). Tacrine hydrochloride is not a once a day drug and single doses above 50 mg per day would result in higher toxicity with poorer response to endpoints desired. Many of the subjects "tested" in this study were no doubt toxic with tacrine at the time of testing. In the category of [Personalized Dose], Molloy et al. went to great lengths to find optimal doses for subject. They then disregarded their own findings. They randomly assigned the patients to "eight possible orders ...
In 1986, a lead article (1) in New England Journal of Medicine reported the results of a small crossover trial of oral tetrahydroaminoacridine (THA) in patients with Alzheimer disease aged 40 years and older. The accompanying editorial explained how the improvement seen in most patients validated the hypothesis that Alzheimer disease is characterized by a cholinergic deficit. The paper and editorial helped create a general expectation and, for the public, hope that cholinergic enhancement therapy with cholinesterase inhibitors would help reverse the cognitive and behavioral impairments of Alzheimer disease, just as levodopa had revolutionized treatment of another neurodegenerative disease, Parkinson disease. The 1986 trial provided what was probably the most optimistic setting in which to show the efficacy of THA (now called tacrine). The systematic review by López Arrieta and Rodriguez Artalejo confirms what many clinicians have known for years. Only a few patients benefit from tacrine, and ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Potential role for estrogen replacement in the treatment of Alzheimers dementia. AU - Schneider, Lon S.. AU - Farlow, Martin R.. AU - Pogoda, Janice M.. PY - 1997/9/22. Y1 - 1997/9/22. N2 - In light of evidence that estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) might affect cholinergic function, we examined possible effects of ERT on clinical and cognitive responses to the cholinesterase inhibitor tacrine in women with Alzheimers disease (AD). In a previously reported 30-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter clinical trial, 14.5% of 318 women with evaluable data had been receiving ERT prior to randomization. Patients were randomly assigned to receive placebo or one of three ascending dosages of tacrine (maximum dosages of 80 mg/day, 120 mg/day, or 160 mg/day). Women completing the trial receiving ERT and tacrine improved more than women not receiving ERT who were randomized to tacrine or to placebo as assessed by cognitive (p ,0.01), clinical (p = 0.02), ...
article{dd800d7b-fd6e-4ee6-9ef4-ae39c88634e1, abstract = {Biochemical and histochemical studies have demonstrated a widespread deficit in the activity of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) in the brains of patients with Alzheimers disease (DAT). Multiple disturbances in several transmitter systems have been found. The most consistent neurochemical changes in DAT are reductions in the cholinergic system. The major pharmacological approach today in DAT is based on the cholinergic theory assuming that acetylcholine has a major cortical impact on cognitive processes. Tetrahydroaminoacridine (THA, tacrine) is a centrally active reversible acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. A large number of trials have been performed in patients with DAT.

Tacrine: A cholinesterase inhibitor that crosses the blood-brain barrier. Tacrine has been used to counter the effects of muscle relaxants, as a respiratory stimulant, and in the treatment of Alzheimers disease and other central nervous system disorders.
The review summarizes research into the highly relevant topics of cholinesterase and amyloid aggregation inhibitors connected to tacrine congeners, both of which are associated with neurogenerative diseases. Various opinions will be discussed regarding the dual binding site inhibitors which are characterized by increased inhibitor potency against acetylcholin/butyrylcholine esterase and amyloid formation. It is suggested that these compounds can both raise levels of acetylcholine by binding to the active site, and also prevent amyloid aggregation. In connection with this problem, the mono/dual binding of the multifunctional derivatives of tacrine, their mode of action and their neuroprotective activities are reported. The influence of low molecular compounds on protein amyloid aggregation, which might be considered as a potential therapeutic strategy in the treatment of Alzheimers disease is also reported. Finally, attention is paid to some physico-chemical factors, such as desolvation energies
Tacrine is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor approved for the treatment of Alzheimers disease. Unfortunately, reversible hepatotoxicity in about 30% of patients at therapeutic doses limits clinical use. The purpose of this study was to develop and characterize a model of tacrine hepatotoxicity to begin to understand the mechanisms of injury. Rats were given tacrine (10-50 mg/kg, intragatrically) and killed 24 hr later. An increase in serum aspartate aminotransferase was observed up to 35 mg/kg and histology revealed pericentral necrosis and fatty changes. Aspartate aminotransferase was increased from 12 to 24 hr and returned to control values by 32 hr. Livers were perfused in a nonrecirculating system to measure oxygen uptake and trypan blue was infused at the end of each experiment to evaluate tissue perfusion. Time for trypan blue to distribute evenly throughout the liver 3 hr after tacrine treatment was significantly increased (6.9 ± 1.3 min) compared to controls (1.0 ± 0.3 min) reflecting ...
Alzheimers disease is the most common cause of dementia in our older Americans. The disease is named after the psychiatrist and neuropathologist Dr. Alois Alzheimer. He discovered unique changes in the brain of a patient with severe dementia who had died - deposits of amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles. Today the presence of these plaques and tangles is considered characteristic of Alzheimers disease. The brain shrinks due to loss of brain cells and there is decreased transmission of the chemical messages in the brain (neurotransmission). Currently, medicine cannot remove the plaques and tangles, and we cannot replace the lost tissue in the brain. All of the prescription drugs on the market for Alzheimers disease are aimed at improving neurotransmission. Tacrine has several proposed mechanisms of action, but primarily it strongly inhibits the enzyme acetylcholinesterase. We want to inhibit acetylcholinesterase because it breaks down acetylcholine, which is a neurotransmitter that has ...

Liver toxicity, and the other common side effects such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea and increased sweating, have shown to be reversible in a matter of weeks once the patient stops taking tacrine (JAMA, April 6, 1994). Of the patients in the Watkins study who withdrew from tacrine treatment due to liver toxicity, 88 per cent were able to resume taking the drug with no evidence of liver toxicity. This finding suggested to Watkins et al that the liver may be able to adapt to the toxic effects of tacrine over time, and could also explain why liver toxicity rarely developed beyond the initial 12 weeks of treatment (JAMA April 6, 1994 ...
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 ...

The active center of acetylcholinesterase (AChE), a target site for competitive inhibitors, resides centrosymmetric to the subunit at the base of a deep, narrow gorge lined by aromatic residues. At the gorge entry, a peripheral site encompasses overlapping binding loci for noncompetitive inhibitors, which alter substrate access to the gorge. The click-chemistry inhibitor TZ2PA6 links the active center ligand, tacrine, to the peripheral site ligand, propidium, through a biorthogonal reaction of an acetylene and an azide that forms either a syn1 or an anti1 triazole. Compared with wild-type mouse AChE, a Tyr337Ala mutant displays full catalytic activity, albeit with 2-3 orders of magnitude higher affinities for the TZ2PA6 syn1 and anti1 regioisomers, reflected in low femtomolar K(d) values, diffusion-limited association, and dissociation half-times greater than 1 month and 1 week, respectively. Three structures of each of the co-crystallized syn1 and anti1 complexes of the Tyr337Ala mutant were ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Drugs that increase intelligence?. T2 - Application for childhood cognitive impairment. AU - Capone, George T.. PY - 1998/1/1. Y1 - 1998/1/1. N2 - Due in part to the favorable demographics of Alzheimers disease in the general population, pharmaceutical companies worldwide are aggressively pursuing the research and development of cognitive-enhancing drugs. There have been two rather noteworthy successes in recent years as both tacrine and donepezil have received FDA approval as useful pharmacologic treatment for Alzheimers disease. Given what is now known regarding the critical periods for synaptic development and the organization of large-scale neuronal circuits in the developing cerebral cortex, it appears that there may exist a window of opportunity during which specifically targeted, pharmacologic intervention could exert a significantly favorable biologic effect during development. Pharmacologic agents that increase the brains responsiveness to activity-dependent ...

A wide range of evidence shows that cholinesterase (ChE) inhibitors can interfere with the progression of Alzheimers disease (AD). The earliest known ChE inhibitors, namely, physostigmine and tacrine, showed modest improvement in the cognitive function of AD patients. However, clinical studies show that physostigmine has poor oral activity, brain penetration and pharmacokinetic parameters, while tacrine has hepatotoxic liability. Studies were then focused on finding a new type of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitor that would overcome the disadvantages of these two compounds. During the study, by chance we found a seed compound. We then conducted a structure-activity relationship study of this compound. After four years of exploratory research, we found donepezil hydrochloride (donepezil). Donepezil showed several positive characteristics including the following: 1) It has a novel structure compared to other conventional ChE inhibitors; 2) It shows strong anti-AChE activity and has long ...
1ODC: Complexes of Alkylene-Linked Tacrine Dimers with Torpedo Californica Acetylcholinesterase: Binding of Bis(5)-Tacrine Produces a Dramatic Rearrangement in the Active-Site Gorge.
Ginkgo biloba has historically been the most prescribed herb in Germany and has been used extensively in the prevention and treatment of Alzheimers disease (AD). The basic approved treatment protocol has been an extract (dubbed GBE) made from the leaves of the ginkgo biloba tree. Studies indicate that GBE may improve memory and quality of life and slow progression in the early stages of AD.. At least five double-blind trials have demonstrated GBE to be helpful for people in early stages of AD. A 2007 study of 400 subjects with AD, GBE improved dementia scores while subjects receiving the placebo experienced a deterioration of scores.. A review of over 52 studies conducted on GBE for the treatment of dementia, concluded that randomized controlled studies that focused on AD patients both showed significant improvement in these areas.. Another review of placebo-controlled trials of GBE for AD concluded that the herb compared favorably with two prescription drugs, donepezil and tacrine, commonly ...

Protective effect of ethanolic extract of Psidium guajava L. leaves in tacrine-induced orofacial dyskinesia by assessing its neurobehavioral and biochemical alterations in rats
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 ...

They also suggested ribavirin, an anti-viral drug, as a treatment for severe viral infections long before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ever approved it for use with Hepatitis C patients.. Their accomplishments only continue to grow in the next thirty years after they began in the 80s. In the 90s, they made big moves and sued the FDA for its failure in approving Tacrine (THA) as ...
5 Sep 2017. NUS pharmaceutical scientists found that modulation of gut bacteria could enhance drug therapeutic value.. Pharmaceutical drugs are broken down by enzymes in the liver into their metabolites, which are subsequently excreted in the faeces and urine. Drugs can also undergo chemical reactions mediated by bacteria within the gut, an important process that is commonly neglected. In a new study, a team of pharmaceutical scientists from NUS found that gut bacteria may selectively modify the breaking down of a drug. This causes certain patients to suffer from drug-induced liver injury (DILI), where there are unexpected side effects from consuming a drug, causing liver damage. The discovery and understanding of this process could potentially lead to the development of novel strategies to improve drug treatment outcomes and reduce drug-associated side effects. The study, led by Prof Eric CHAN from the Department of Pharmacy, NUS was carried out using tacrine, an anti-Alzheimers disease drug ...
This study examines the binding properties of a series of newly synthetized tacrine derivatives 1-4 and their anticancer effects. Spectroscopic techniques (UV-Vis, fluorescence spectroscopy, thermal denaturation, and linear spectropolarimetry) and viscometry were used to study DNA binding properties and to determine the types of DNA interaction with the studied derivatives. The binding constants for the complexes with DNA were obtained using UV-Vis spectroscopic titrations (K = 1.6 x 10(4)-4.0 x 10(5) M-1) and electrophoretic methods were used to determine the effect of the derivatives on topoisomerase I and II activity. Monotacrine derivative 1 showed evidence of topoisomerase I relaxation activity at a concentration of 30 x 10(-6) M, while bistacrine derivatives 2-4 produced a complete inhibition of topoisomerase I at a concentration of 5 x 10(-6) M. The biological activities of the derivatives were studied using MTT-assay and flow cytometric methods (detection of mitochondrial membrane ...

Butyrylcholinesterase [BuChE (acylcholine acyl hydrolase); EC 3.1.1.8] limits the access of drugs, including tacrine, to other proteins. The atypical BuChE variant, in which Asp70 at the rim of the active site gorge is substituted by glycine, displayed a more drastically weakened interaction with tacrine than with cocaine, dibucaine, succinylcholine, BW284c51 [1,5-bis(4-allyldimethylammoniumphenyl)pentan-3-one dibromide], or alpha-solanine. To delineate the protein domains that are responsible for this phenomenon, we mutated residues within the rim of the active site gorge, the region parallel to the peripheral site in the homologous enzyme acetylcholinesterase [AChE (acetylcholine acetyl hydrolase); EC 3.1.1.7], the oxyanion hole, and the choline-binding site. When expressed in microinjected Xenopus laevis oocytes, all mutant DNAs yielded comparable amounts of immunoreactive protein products. Most mutants retained catalytic activity close to that of wild-type BuChE and were capable of binding ligands
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 ...
Abstract: We show that the microwave (MW) spectra in semiconductor-nanowire-based transmon qubits provide a strong signature of the presence of Majorana bound states in the junction. This occurs as an external magnetic field tunes the wire into the topological regime and the energy splitting of the emergent Majorana modes oscillates around zero energy owing to spatial overlap in finite-length wires. In particular, we discuss how the zero-energy fermion parity crossings arising from Majorana oscillations result in distinct spectroscopic features. In split-junction geometries, the plasma mode couples to the phase-dispersing subgap levels resulting from Majorana hybridization via a Jaynes-Cummings-like interaction. As a consequence of this interaction, higher order plasma excitations in the junction inherit Majorana properties, including the $4\pi$ effect. Our results, based on a fully microscopic description of the junction, suggest that MW spectroscopy of nanowire-based transmon qubits provides ...
