Hypofunction of NMDA receptors has been implicated in neuropsychiatric disorders including schizophrenia. NMDA receptor neurotransmission can be enhanced through inhibition of glycine reuptake by the glycine transporter type 1 (GlyT1). The primary objective of these studies was to explore the relationship between plasma exposure and glycine cerebrospinal(More)
β-Amyloid (Aβ) peptides are thought to be critically involved in the etiology of Alzheimer's disease (AD). The aspartyl protease β-site amyloid precursor protein cleaving enzyme 1 (BACE1) is required for the production of Aβ, and BACE1 inhibition is thus an attractive target for the treatment of AD. We show that verubecestat (MK-8931) is a potent,(More)
AIMS LCZ696 (angiotensin receptor neprilysin inhibitor) is a novel drug developed for the treatment of heart failure with reduced ejection fraction. Neprilysin is one of multiple enzymes degrading amyloid-β (Aβ). Its inhibition may increase Aβ levels. The potential exists that treatment of LCZ696, through the inhibition of neprilysin by LBQ657 (an LCZ696(More)
In recent years, the growing numbers of patients seeking care for a wide range of psychiatric illnesses in the primary care setting has resulted in an increase in the number of psychotropic medications prescribed. Along with the increased utilization of psychotropic medications, considerable variability is noted in the prescribing patterns of primary care(More)
Neurones in the brain produce beta-amyloid fragments from a larger precursor molecule termed the amyloid precursor protein (APP). When released from the cell, these protein fragments may accumulate in extracellular amyloid plaques and consequently hasten the onset and progression of Alzheimer's disease (AD). A beta fragments are generated through the action(More)
