The rich innervation of the mammalian prostate is essential for maintaining its structure and function, and this innervation is mainly composed of the parasympathetic cholinergic nerve and the sympathetic adrenal nerve.
The global glaucoma therapeutics market segmentation is based on drug class (alpha agonist, beta blockers, carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, cholinergic, combined medication, prostaglandin analogs), end users (ambulatory surgical centers, hospitals, ophthalmic clinics).

Proposed by Janowsky et al (10) in 1972, the cholinergic-adrenergic balance hypothesis of affective disorders suggests that depression represents an excess of central cholinergic tone over adrenergic tone, and that mania represents the opposite imbalance.
