Modulation of GABAA receptor-mediated currents by phenazepam and its metabolites
TLDR
Both PNZ and HPNZ can be referred to as full positive modulators of GABAA receptors and that they are primarily responsible for GABAergic effects of therapeutic doses of PNZ.
Pharmacodynamical and Neuroreceptor Analysis of the Permeability of the Blood-Brain Barrier for Derivatives of 1,4-Benzodiazepine
TLDR
Estimates of the concentrations of prodrugs (levana and gidazepam) in the brain, when based on their pharmacodynamical indices, are inadequate because metabolites of these agents are more active than these compounds per se.
