Cholinergic supersensitivity has been postulated to be an etiologic factor in affective disorder. After several pilot dose-response studies, we administered 8 mg of the cholinergic agonist arecoline subcutaneously to eight pairs of normal volunteer identical twins and eight bipolar patients currently euthymic and unmedicated. During the hour following(More)
A series of novel 2-arylbenzoxazoles that upregulate the production of utrophin in murine H2K cells, as assessed using a luciferase reporter linked assay, have been identified. This compound class appears to hold considerable promise as a potential treatment for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Following the delineation of structure-activity relationships in(More)
The serotonin precursor tryptophan was used to test neuroendocrine responses in remitted bipolar patients and controls. Tryptophan was administered in the afternoon when spontaneous cortisol secretion is lower than in the morning. Following pilot studies at various doses, 50 mg/kg L-tryptophan was given i.v. over 20 min to 11 patients and 14 controls.(More)
