Antidepressant Effects in Hybrid Striped Bass: Moving from External Exposures to Internal Doses

  title={Antidepressant Effects in Hybrid Striped Bass: Moving from External Exposures to Internal Doses},
  author={Lauren E Sweet},
Over 47 percent of Americans take at least one prescription drug per month and of these pharmaceuticals, antidepressants are the third most prescribed drug. Their widespread and prolonged use coupled with incomplete removal during wastewater treatment processes has made them one of the most commonly detected pharmaceuticals in the aquatic environment. Antidepressants are intended to modify human behavior by altering brain chemistry and the neurotransmitter receptor targets of these chemicals… 


Effects of the antidepressant venlafaxine on fish brain serotonin and predation behavior.
Behavioral and biochemical responses of hybrid striped bass during and after fluoxetine exposure.
Pharmaceuticals as Neuroendocrine Disruptors: Lessons Learned from Fish on Prozac
The evolutionary conservation of the 5-HT transporter is described and the disruptive effects of fluoxetine on several physiological endpoints, including involvement of neuroendocrine mechanisms are reviewed, which may be helpful in designing targeted approaches for future risk assessments of pharmaceuticals disrupting the neuro endocrine system in general.
Physiological Endpoints for Potential SSRI Interactions in Fish
The insight on the physiological function of 5-HT strongly suggests that the experimental approaches currently used are inadequate if not entirely improper for routine environmental risk assessment of pharmaceuticals (e.g., SSRIs), as relevant endpoints are not assessed or impossible to determine.
Plasma Concentrations of Human Pharmaceuticals as Predictors of Pharmacological Responses in Fish
The model can provide a framework and prioritisation tool for considering pharmaceutical responses in fish and indicates that pharmaceuticals may partition from water into fish plasma.
Fish models in behavioral toxicology: Automated techniques, updates and perspectives
Improvements in computer and video automation have made possible significant progress in the ease, utility, and affordability of obtaining, interpreting, and applying behavioral endpoints in a variety of applications from water quality monitoring to use in toxicity identification evaluation (TIE).
Mixture and single‐substance toxicity of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors toward algae and crustaceans
It was demonstrated that the mixture toxicity of the SSRIs in the two bioassays is predictable by the model of concentration addition, which may be used to predict the combined effect of the mixture of SSRI.
