INTRODUCTION Continuous video-electroencephalographic (EEG) monitoring remains the gold standard for seizure liability assessments in preclinical drug safety assessments. EEG monitored by telemetry was used to assess the behavioral and EEG effects of noribogaine hydrochloride (noribogaine) in cynomolgus monkeys. Noribogaine is an iboga alkaloid being studied for the treatment of opioid dependence. METHODS Six cynomolgus monkeys (3 per gender) were instrumented with EEG telemetry transmitters… CONTINUE READING
