Screening for acetylcholinesterase inhibitors
from Amaryllidaceae using silica gel thin-layer chromatography in combination with bioactivity staining.
However, none of the alkaloids detected in the extracts surprisingly correspond with any known acetylcholinesterase inhibitor
within this class of compounds.
Actavis and Adamas Pharmaceuticals have obtained authorization from the US Food and Drug Administration for Namzaric, a fixed-dose combination (FDC) of memantine hydrochloride extended-release, a NMDA receptor antagonist, and donepezil hydrochloride, an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor
Aricept(R) is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor
developed by Eisai.
Since acetylcholinesterase inhibitor
monotherapy controls the symptoms of no more than 40% of myasthenia gravis (MG) patients, most patients will end up taking prednisone or other immunosuppressive agents, either alone or in combination, said Dr.
Edwards was designed and initiated by him and his associates and funded by an unrestricted grant from Janssen, the company that markets the acetylcholinesterase inhibitor
Food and Drug Administration has sanctioned the New Drug Application for Namzaric, a fixed-dose combination of memantine hydrochloride extended-release, a NMDA receptor antagonist, and donepezil hydrochloride, an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor
The type of antagonism was inferred in independent preparations by testing the ability of the acetylcholinesterase inhibitor
physostigmine to reverse the inhibition of contractions, namely by increasing acetylcholine concentration in the synapses and displacing the antagonist (reversible by physostigmine = competitive blockade; non-reversible by physostigmine = non-competitive blockade).
Aricept is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor
developed by Eisai, which works to increase levels of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter, in the brain.
Patients could be enrolled if they were already on stable treatment with an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor
, and about 70% of the patients fell in this category, said Dr.
After the discovery that the alkaloid galanthamine is a potent acetylcholinesterase inhibitor
and, consequently, very important for the symptomatic treatment of AD (Liu et al.
AriceptR, an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor
developed by Eisai Co.
I started him on an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor
, which controlled the tardive dystonia and left the patient free of dyskinesias.
Results from prior case series and small, open-label studies had suggested that treatment with rivastigmine might help patients with Parkinson's disease-associated dementia, but this was the first large, randomized controlled study to prove the efficacy of any acetylcholinesterase inhibitor
for this form of dementia, Dr.
The trial included patients taking acetylcholinesterase inhibitor
(AChEI) treatments (donepezil and rivastigmine) as well as patients not taking AChEIs.
