The effect of cholinergic 'blockade' on human memory performance as a model for the effect of cholinergic depletion in clinical disorders was investigated. A wide range of memory functions was assessed in 70 subjects, using tests which were identical or closely similar to those which have previously been employed in clinical studies of Alzheimer and(More)
Seven randomised comparative studies were conducted in healthy volunteers to compare the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profiles of selegiline hydrochloride in a new formulation designed for buccal absorption “Zydis Selegiline” (1.25–10 mg) with conventional selegiline hydrochloride tablets “conventional selegiline tablets” (10 mg). A total of 156(More)
The growth hormone responses to clonidine (1.3 micrograms/kgm) and apomorphine (0.005 mg/kgm) have been measured in 8 drug free patients with endogenous depression. In these patients the growth hormone responses to clonidine were significantly smaller than to apomorphine. As these doses of clonidine and apomorphine have previously been reported to cause(More)
Three studies were performed using a fast dissolving formulation of selegiline hydrochloride designed for buccal absorption “Zydis Selegiline”. The aim of the first study was to compare the therapeutic efficacy of Zydis Selegiline (1.25 mg or 10 mg) with conventional selegiline hydrochloride tablets “conventional selegiline tablets” (10 mg) in patients with(More)
As part of an investigation of ritanserin-induced receptor down-regulation, monoamine and metabolite levels in rat frontal cortex were measured following chronic ritanserin (2 mg/kg per day) or clorgyline (10 mg/kg per day) administration. Clorgyline increased 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) by 83%, noradrenaline (NA) by 54%, and dopamine (DA) by 16% and(More)
Ten patients with seasonal affective disorder received the following treatments for 5 days each: (a) artificial daylight (2500 lux) from 20.00 to 23.00 and from 07.00 to 10.00 hours; (b) red light (300 lux) from 20.00 to 23.00 and from 07.00 to 10.00 hours; (c) artificial daylight (2500 lux) from 22.00 to 23.00 and from 07.00 to 08.00 hours. The(More)
The growth hormone (GH) response to clonidine was measured in 10 patients meeting standardized criteria for 'endogenous' depression and in 10 patients individually matched for age and sex but meeting the corresponding criteria for 'reactive' depression. In a paired comparison of patients with reactive and endogenous depression (matched for age and sex), the(More)
