Nuclear birefringence of neutral red or rivanol stained cell suspensions from rat spleen has been investigated. Polyclonal or monoclonal mitogens produced an increased birefringence of the nucleus following 30 min in vitro stimulation at 37 degrees C. The nuclear birefringence increased by 62.2% [p less than 0.001], when the cells were incubated in the supernatants of a previously phytohemaglutinin stimulated culture. Amantadine, a potent phytohemagglutinin inhibitor, was unable to prevent the effect of the supernatant, but heating for 1 h at 56 degrees C destroyed its activity. The results suggest that increase in nuclear birefringence is mediated by a soluble factor which is released in the course of lymphocyte activation. The nuclear birefringence of surviving cells from human spleens obtained within 6 to 24 h post mortem increases after in vitro stimulation.

Descriptive study of use and prescription of cholinesterase inhibitors and/or memantine in 2011 according to 2 databases: Farm@drid (pharmacy billing records for the Region of Madrid) and BIFAP (database for pharmacoepidemiology research in primary care, with diagnosis and prescription records). We tested the comparability of drug use results from each database using the chi-square test and prevalence ratios. The prevalence of dementia in Madrid was estimated based on the dose per 100 inhabitants/day, adjusting the result for data obtained from BIFAP on combination treatment in the general population (0.37%) and the percentage of dementia patients undergoing treatment (41.13%).

Three types of hyperalgesia can occur during the postoperative period: primary hyperalgesia, which disappears with wound healing, secondary or central hyperalgesia, which can lead to chronic pain, and opiate-induced hyperalgesia. Different drugs, most of which are NMDA receptors antagonists, are used to decrease or prevent the risk of central or opiate-induced hyperalgesia. However, it is difficult to determine whether they are really effective and at which dosage: the results of most published studies are difficult to interpret because of methodological problems. The two most frequent of those are: absence of objective measurement of secondary hyperalgesia and difficulties targeting an at risk population.

Memantine is a non-competitive N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist used to treat Alzheimer's disease. We investigated memantine pharmacokinetics after oral, IV and patch administration in rats, and compared memantine pharmacokinetics after multiple- or single-dose oral and transdermal administration. Venous blood was collected at preset intervals in single- and multiple-dose studies. Non-compartmental pharmacokinetics was analysed for all formulations. The oral, IV and patch memantine doses were 10 mg/kg, 2 mg/kg and 8.21 ± 0.89 mg/kg, respectively. The maximum plasma concentration was lower and the half-life longer after patch administration than oral and IV administration. Memantine bioavailability was 41 and 63% for oral and patch administration, respectively. Steady state was achieved around 24 hr for oral and patch administration. The mean AUC increased after oral or patch administration from single to multiple dose. The memantine patch formulation displayed a longer duration of action and lower peak plasma concentration. However, drug exposure was similar to the oral formulation at each dose. Additionally, the memantine patch formulation displayed a smaller interindividual variability and lower accumulation than the oral formulation.

Fatigue is a significant factor in the lives of many MS patients and the most commonly reported symptom in many studies. Fatigue is an important symptom to consider because it affects patients' social lives, occupations, and activities of daily living. Efforts to predict fatigue have been mixed, but it appears to be related to overall quality of life and mood. From a pathophysiologic perspective, fatigue in MS is multifactorial and complex,involving dysregulation of the immune system, changes in the nervous system related to the disease process, neuroendocrine and neurotransmitter changes, and other factors such as physical deconditioning, sleep disturbance, pain, and medication side effects. Various attempts to assess fatigue have been made, and many measures are now available for use in clinical practice and research. In clinical practice, these measures help guide treatment considerations. Recent research has provided valuable strategies to ameliorate fatigue in MS, and although many patients continue to experience fatigue despite interventions, many receive substantial relief.Nonpharmacologic approaches-considered the first step in treatment-include exercise programs, cooling, dietary considerations, and energy conservation strategies. For patients who continue to experience significant fatigue, several medications (although not specifically approved for use in the reduction of MS-related fatigue) have proved effective in this regard.The first-line agents include amantadine for mild fatigue and modafinil for more severe cases. Second-line agents include pemoline and antidepressant medications. Other pharmacologic agents have also shown some promise.

We previously reported that some N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA)-receptor antagonists enhanced histamine neuron activity in rodents. Here, we have investigated the effects of memantine, an NMDA-receptor antagonist used for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, on histaminergic neurotransmission. In vitro, memantine antagonized native NMDA receptors with a micromolar potency but had no effect at recombinant human histamine receptors. In vivo, a single administration of memantine increased histamine neuron activity, as shown by the 60% increase of tele-methylhistamine (t-MeHA) levels observed in the brain of mice. This increase occurred with an ED(50) of 0.3 ± 0.1 mg/kg, similar to that found on inhibition of ex vivo [(3)H]dizocilpine maleate (MK-801) binding (1.8 ± 1.3 mg/kg). Two days after pretreatment of mice with memantine at 5 mg/kg twice daily for 5 days, t-MeHA levels were enhanced by 50 ± 7% (p < 0.001), indicating a long-lasting activation of histamine neurons. Quantitative polymerase chain reaction analysis was used to explore genes involved in this persistent effect. H(3) receptor mRNAs were strongly increased, but the density of H(3) receptor binding sites was increased solely in hypothalamus (by 141 ± 24%). Up-regulations of brain-derived neurotrophic factor and NMDA-receptor 1 subunit mRNAs were also found but were restricted to hippocampus. mRNA expression of α7-nicotinic receptors remained unchanged in any region. Considering the well established cognitive effects of histamine neurons, the increase in brain t-MeHA levels after single or repeated administration of therapeutic doses of memantine suggests that the drug exerts its beneficial effects on cognitive deficits of Alzheimer's disease, at least partly, by activating histamine neurons.

Tardive Tourette syndrome is an extrapyramidal symptom which appears after long-term neuroleptic use. We report two cases of this syndrome and review case reports to introduce this extrapyramidal symptom. The first case is a 40-year-old male with schizophrenia. After 6 years of neuroleptic therapy, he began to have barking and grunting vocalizations and show neck and shoulderjerking. The second case is a 53-year-old male with alcoholism. Sulpride was prescribed for three years to treat mood symptoms. Oral dyskinesia appeared after sulpride was stopped. About five weeks after amantadine and trihexyphenidyl hydrochloride was started, he began to have grunting vocalizations and show neck jerking. The involuntary movement disappeared quickly after intraveneous administration of haloperidol. Including our two cases, there are 17 case reports of tardive Tourette syndrome. Twelve cases were schizophrenic patients. In addition to typical movements, patients had coplolalia in 6 cases, and oral dyskinesia in 9 cases. In 8 cases, tardive Tourette syndrome appeared during neuroleptic treatment, and in 9 cases the syndrome appeared after neuroleptics were stopped. Our two cases and previous case reports showed that tardive Tourette syndrome appeared after long-term neuroleptic therapy, it was improved transiently by an increase of neuroleptics and exacerbated by their decrease, it was exacerbated by dopaminergic and anticholinergic drugs, and tardive dyskinesia was often seen concomitantly, indicating that tardive Tourette syndrome has a similar pathophysiology to tardive dyskinesia. Tardive Tourette syndrome should not be misdiagnosed as an exacerbation of schizophrenic symptoms responsive to an increase of neuroleptics. This side effect should be recognized widely and treated properly.

A study of an outbreak of acute respiratory disease was done at the "Carlos Font Pupo" Old People's Home. Las Tunas Province, where 30 diseased old individuals were detected; grippe was diagnosed to two of them. General attack rate was 8.6%. Curative treatment with amantadine was administered to 29 old patients and chemoprophylaxis to 26, for a total of 55 old individuals treated. The evolution of the patients was satisfactory and none new case was observed. Diarrhea was the only one secondary reaction observed in a patient under chemoprophylactic treatment. The need to carry on performing similar studies is pointed out.

symmetrel reviews

Caregivers of Alzheimer's disease patients treated with memantine have reported improved frontal lobe behaviors. The present study examined these possible improvements in executive functioning using rater-blinded scoring of a clock-drawing test. Fifty-one Alzheimer's disease patients were treated with open-label memantine for 10 weeks. Clock drawing and Mini-Mental State Examination data were collected before and after treatment. Clock drawing improved significantly with treatment, whereas Mini-Mental State Examination data did not. Twenty-seven patients judged as improved in frontal lobe behaviors by caregivers demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in clock drawing to command, whereas 24 patients judged to be unchanged or worse with memantine in their frontal lobe behaviors had no change in their clock drawing and had worsening on their Mini-Mental State Examination. The current findings suggest that memantine improves frontal lobe behavior in some Alzheimer's disease patients and that clock drawing to command may be sensitive to these improvements.

There is growing preclinical evidence for the involvement of glutamate in the behavioral actions of nicotine. The aim of this study, was to investigate the role of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in the cognitive and subjective effects of smoking in humans. Sixty regular smokers took part in this double-blind placebo controlled study, that investigated the effect of the NMDA-antagonist memantine (40 mg) and the nicotinic-receptor antagonist mecamylamine (10 mg) on smoking-induced improvement in performance of a task of sustained attention and on smoking-induced changes in subjective effects and craving. Increases in subjective ratings of 'buzzed' following smoking were reversed by memantine, but not by mecamylamine. In contrast, improvement on a Rapid Visual Information Processing task by smoking was opposed by mecamylamine, but not by memantine. Smoking reduced craving for cigarettes, but neither drug altered this effect. Our results suggest that glutamatergic mechanisms may have differential involvement in the subjective and cognitive actions of smoking. Further investigations using different ligands are warranted to fully characterize the role of glutamate underlying the consequences of smoking behavior.

Antiviral chemotherapy has come of age. Several compounds, i.e. amantadine, rimantadine, idoxuridine, trifluridine, vidarabine, acyclovir, ribavirin and azidothymidine, have been licensed for clinical use and other promising compounds may follow soon. The search for new antiviral agents has been boosted by the advent of AIDS, but the activity spectrum of the newly developed antivirals not only spans retroviruses but also various other virus infections, i.e. herpes-, adeno-, pox- and rhinovirus infections. Clinical trials have been started with a variety of these new compounds and the prospects for an effective chemotherapy of several viral diseases certainly look bright.

The antispastic agent and N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist memantine has recently been proposed as a neuroprotective drug for use in patients with dementia syndromes with primarily temporal lobe pathology, e.g. senile dementia of Alzheimer type or dementia in Parkinson's disease. In a quantitative autoradiographic study in human post mortem hippocampus, memantine was able to inhibit binding of the noncompetitive NMDA-antagonist [3H]MK-801 ((+)-5-methyl-10,11-dihydro-5H-dibenzo(a,d)cyclohepten-5,10-imine maleate) with inhibition constants between 3 and 10 microM, being about a factor of 10 more potent than the dissociative anaesthetic and NMDA receptor antagonist (+/-)ketamine. As these inhibition constants are well within the therapeutic concentration range of memantine, antagonism of endogenous glutamate at limbic NMDA receptors may be one molecular mechanism by which memantine is beneficial in dementia syndromes.

symmetrel medication identification

While aminoadamantanes are well-established inhibitors of the influenza A M2 proton channel, the mechanisms by which they are rendered ineffective against M2S31N are unclear. Solid state NMR, isothermal titration calorimetry, electrophysiology, antiviral assays, and molecular dynamics simulations suggest stronger binding interactions for aminoadamantanes to M2WT compared to negligible or weak binding to M2S31N. This is due to reshaping of the M2 pore when N31 is present, which, in contrast to wild-type (WT), leads (A) to the loss of the V27 pocket for the adamantyl cage and to a predominant orientation of the ligand's ammonium group toward the N-terminus and (B) to the lack of a helical kink upon ligand binding. The kink, which reduces the tilt of the C-terminal helical domain relative to the bilayer normal, includes the W41 primary gate for proton conductance and may prevent the gate from opening, representing an alternative view for how these drugs prevent proton conductance.

It has recently been shown that adriamycin is accumulated in mast cells by an active transport system, which closely resembles the outward transport system of multidrug resistant (MDR) cells. The present study was undertaken in order to test the effect of substances which are known to limit or reverse resistance in MDR cells on adriamycin uptake and histamine release in rat peritoneal mast cells. The lysosomotropic amines chloroquine, nicotine, propranolol, atropine, methylamine, ammonium chloride and quinacrine were only buy symmetrel slightly effective at very high concentrations; no effect could be observed with the lysosomotropic amine amantadine. The carboxylic ionophores monensin and nigericin were, on the contrary, extremely efficacious; in particular, the effect of monensin was more evident when mast cells were preincubated with the ionophore for 10 or 30 minutes while only a slight inhibition was evident when the two substances were added simultaneously. Removal of monensin from the incubation medium before challenge with adriamycin did not abolish the inhibitory action of the ionophore. Among the tested membrane active agents, Tween 80 and Triton WR-1339 were able to limit adriamycin uptake and histamine release. The microscopical examination showed that in mast cells treated with adriamycin, an intense fluorescence was present in cytoplasmic granules; on the contrary, mast cells preincubated with monensin showed hardly any fluorescence.

A 70-year-old woman began to experience gait disturbance in 1995, followed by the appearance of action tremor of the left hand in 1996. This tremor was subsequently noted in the right hand. Her doctor initially diagnosed Parkinson's disease and administered amantadine and levodopa. The gait disturbance and tremor improved. However, she stopped taking the medication and her symptoms worsened in April, 1998. She was admitted to our hospital, and showed rigidity and action tremor predominantly on the left side, frozen gait, postural reflex disturbance and orthostatic hypotension. Following levodopa administration, her UPDRS score improved from 61.3 +/- 1.2 (mean +/- SD) to buy symmetrel 41.7 +/- 5.4. However, she experienced a greater decrease in systolic blood pressure following administration upon standing, from 12.5 +/- 5.8 mmHg to 17.8 +/- 9.2 mmHg. Thus, although levodopa administration led to an improvement in rigidity, tremor and akinesia, her orthostatic hypotension worsened. Based on the present results clinicians should be aware of the potential of worsened orthostatic hypotension when prescribing levodopa to treat Parkinson's disease.

Electroencephalography (EEG) often fails to assess both the level (i.e., arousal) and the content (i.e., awareness) of pathologically altered consciousness in patients without motor responsiveness. This might be related to a decline of awareness, to episodes of low arousal and disturbed sleep patterns, and/or to distorting and attenuating effects of the skull and intermediate tissue on the recorded brain signals. Novel approaches are required to overcome these limitations. We introduced epidural electrocorticography (ECoG) for monitoring of cortical physiology in a late-stage amytrophic lateral sclerosis patient in completely locked-in state (CLIS). Despite long-term application for a period of six months, no implant-related complications occurred. Recordings from the left frontal cortex were sufficient to identify three arousal states. Spectral analysis of the intrinsic oscillatory activity enabled us to extract state-dependent dominant frequencies at <4, ~7 and ~20 Hz, representing sleep-like periods, and phases of low and elevated arousal, respectively. In the absence of other biomarkers, ECoG proved to be a reliable tool for monitoring circadian rhythmicity, i.e., avoiding interference with the patient when he was sleeping and exploiting time windows of responsiveness. Moreover, the effects of interventions addressing the patient's arousal, e.g., amantadine medication, could be evaluated objectively on the basis of physiological markers, even in the absence of behavioral parameters. buy symmetrel Epidural ECoG constitutes a feasible trade-off between surgical risk and quality of recorded brain signals to gain information on the patient's present level of arousal. This approach enables us to optimize the timing of interactions and medical interventions, all of which should take place when the patient is in a phase of high arousal. Furthermore, avoiding low-responsiveness periods will facilitate measures to implement alternative communication pathways involving brain-computer interfaces (BCI).

The impact of ribavirin exposure on sustained virological response (SVR) in patients with chronic hepatitis C is unknown. Preliminary studies showed marked inter buy symmetrel -individual variability of ribavirin concentrations despite dose adjustment for body weight (BW) and suggested there was a correlation between single time point concentrations and SVR. None of them evaluated the global exposure to ribavirin. This study was conducted to determine whether early ribavirin global exposure is related with SVR. An exploratory pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic (PK-PD) study was conducted in genotype 1 hepatitis C patients treated with peginterferon alfa-2a and ribavirin (dose-adjusted for BW) for 12 weeks, to which amantadine was added for the following 36 weeks. Full and abbreviated ribavirin area under the concentration time curves (AUC(0-12h), AUC(0-4h)) were derived from plasma concentration profiles at day 0 (D0), week 12 (W12), W12 + 1 day, and W24. Virological follow-up was performed at D0 (0, 12, and 24 hours), W2, W4, W6, and monthly until W72 (TaqMan polymerase chain reaction, cut-off 15 international units/mL). Twenty-eight patients were enrolled in the study and 24 completed it. Patients with a SVR had a significantly higher D0 AUC(0-12h) (3695 [1571-6916] versus 2937 [1266-4913] microg/hour/L, P = 0.03) and D0 AUC(0-4h) (2010 [615-3175] versus 1340 [622-2246] microg/hour/L, P = 0.03). Patients with D0 AUCs above the cut-off values defined by receiver operating characteristic curves (3014 microg/hour/L and 1755 microg/hour/L for AUC(0-12h) and AUC(0-4h), respectively) had a significantly better chance of achieving an SVR than patients with AUCs under the thresholds (odds ratio = 16.0, 95% confidence interval 1.54-166.6, P = 0.02 and odds ratio = 8.9, 95% confidence interval, 1.4-56.6; P = 0.02).

The single-dose pharmacokinetics of amantadine hydrochloride and rimantadine hydrochloride were compared in a randomized, two-period, crossover study involving six young (less than or equal to 35 years) and six elderly (less than or equal to 60 years) adults. Subjects ingested single 200-mg oral doses after an overnight fast, and serial plasma (0 to 96 h), buy symmetrel nasal mucus (0 to 8 h), and urine (0 to 24 h) samples were collected for assay of drug concentration by electron capture gas chromatography. For both groups combined, rimantadine differed significantly from amantadine in peak plasma concentration (mean +/- standard deviation, 0.25 +/- 0.06 versus 0.65 +/- 0.22 micrograms/ml), plasma elimination half-life (36.5 +/- 15 versus 16.7 +/- 7.7 h), and percentage of administered dose excreted unchanged in urine (0.6 +/- 0.8 versus 45.7 +/- 15.7%). No significant age-related differences were noted for rimantadine. Urinary excretion (0 to 24 h) of rimantadine and its hydroxylated metabolites averaged 19% of the administered dose. The maximum nasal mucus drug concentration was similar for both drugs (0.42 +/- 0.25 versus 0.45 +/- 0.32 micrograms/g), and the ratio of maximum nasal mucus to plasma concentration was over twofold higher after rimantadine than after amantadine. These findings may in part explain the clinical effectiveness of rimantadine in influenza A virus infections at dosages that have lower toxicity than those of amantadine.

A 71-year-old woman presented with severe akinesia, frozen gait, and compromised postural reflexes, without rigidity, tremor, or vertical gaze disturbance. With a working diagnosis of pure akinesia, we administered amantadine (150 mg/d) and L-threo-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine (DOPS) (600 mg/d), which alleviated her symptoms. When frozen gait Triphala Daily Dosage recurred 2 months later, we increased the dose of L-threo-DOPS to 900 mg/d and added levodopa (300 mg/d) combined with carbidopa, but this failed to improve the patient's symptoms. We then combined administration of tandospirone, a serotonin (5-HT) 1A agonist with L-threo-DOPS (600 mg/d), resulting in marked clinical improvement. Tandospirone is reported to activate noradrenergic neurons via the 5-HT 1A receptor, which could account for such striking improvement in a patient previously responsive to the noradrenergic precursor L-threo-DOPS given alone.

None Amoxil 500mg Dose of the patients experienced significant side effects. Twenty-four patients (60%) showed a reduction of serum aminotransferase levels (twelve patients > 30% and twelve patients < 30% of their basal levels). The analysis of variance showed a significant reduction in aminotransferase levels at the end of treatment (F = 11, p < 0.0001). In four patients, aminotransferases returned to normal, but none of them cleared HCV-RNA. After the end of treatment, serum ALT returned to baseline values in all patients.

The neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses, a family of neurodegenerative lysosomal Benicar Water Pill storage disorders, represent the most common cause of pediatric-onset neurodegeneration. The infantile form has a devastatingly early onset and one of the fastest-progressing disease courses. Despite decades of research, the molecular mechanisms driving neuronal loss in infantile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis remain unknown. We have previously shown that N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA)-type glutamate receptors in the Ppt1(-/-) mouse model of this disease exhibit a hyperfunctional phenotype and postulate that aberrant glutamatergic activity may contribute to neural pathology in both the mouse model and human patients. To test this hypothesis, we treated Ppt1(-/-) mice with the NMDA receptor antagonist memantine and assessed their response to the drug using an accelerating rotarod. At 20 mg/kg, memantine treatment induced a delayed but notable improvement in Ppt1(-/-) mice. Much remains to be assessed before moving to patient trials, but these results suggest memantine has potential as a treatment.

Overall consumption of these drugs has increased from 0.026 DHD (1996) to 3.235 DHD (2004). Donepezil remains as the most prescribed, though it is proportionally decreasing as a result of the quick introduction of newer alternatives. Overall cost of the DHD dispensed in 2004 reached nearly 6 million euros. DTC decreased about 30% over Dyspepsia Medicine Motilium the study period, but the total cost increased ninety-fold (sixty-fold when non-variable euros from 2004 were considered). According to our estimates, 34% of people with AD were receiving specific treatment.

Five RCTs including 1425 patients were assessed. The meta-analysis based on the intention-to-treat analysis indicated that the sustained virological response (SVR) rate was significantly lower in the triple therapy group than in the double therapy group (44.2% vs. 49.2%, risk ratio (RR) 0.90, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.80-1.00, p=0.05). The frequency of discontinuing therapy because of adverse events was similar in the two groups (RR 1.26, 95% CI 0.90-1.78, p=0.18). The sensitivity analysis including the four studies involving Caucasian populations revealed significantly lower SVR rates in the triple therapy group. The other sensitivity analyses also showed similar trends, but did not reach statistical significance.

Several PCP analogs, the putative PCP agonist MDP, and the sigma receptor agonists SKF-10,047 and dexoxadrol were tested for their ability to substitute for PCP in animals trained to discriminate PCP from saline. The potencies of these compounds in substituting for PCP in the behavioral task correlated with their abilities to inhibit the specific binding of 3H-PCP to rat hippocampal sections measured autoradiographically, which occurred at a single class of sites with an affinity of 85 nM and a capacity of 2646 fmol/mg protein. In addition to this specific binding, an additional nonspecific but displaceable fraction of total 3H-PCP binding was present. These results suggest that the specific 3H-PCP binding site measured in the hippocampus may be the type of binding site which mediates the behavioral effects of PCP and related compounds. Therefore, measurement of the inhibition of 3H-PCP binding at this site might aid in the search for PCP antagonists.

Diagnosis, demographics, medication use, apolipoprotein E4 allele status and functional activity level at baseline were gathered for 810 participants enrolled in the ADNI, including healthy controls and subjects with mild cognitive impairment or Alzheimer's. Reports detailing adverse event falls were tabulated. Baseline characteristics were compared between subjects with and without one or more falls. Cox proportional hazards models were conducted to evaluate the association between subject characteristics and hazard of the first fall.

The prevalence of behavioural and psychological symptoms (BPS) is very high among patients with Alzheimer disease (AD); more than 90% of AD patients will present such symptoms during the course of the disease. These symptoms result in poorer quality of life for both patients and caregivers and increased healthcare costs. BPS are the main factors involved in increases to the caregiver burden, and they often precipitate the admission of patients to residential care centres.

The efficacy and the tolerability of memantine (1-amino-3,5-dimethyladamantane hydrochloride, Akatinol Memantine, CAS 41100-52-1) were investigated in patients with mild to moderate dementia syndrome in a randomized two-centre placebo-controlled clinical study. The test substance was administered at a dose of 10 mg/d from day 1 to day 3 and then at a dose of 2 x 10 mg/d from day 4 to the end of treatment after 42 days. Altogether, 88 patients were recruited to the study; their average age was 71.5 years. The efficacy of memantine was judged on the basis of the baseline/6 week differences in the total sum scores of the Clinical Assessment Geriatric Scale (SCAG), the Gottfries-Bräne-Steen Scale (GBS), the SCAG and GBS subscales and the global assessment of the change in the patient's condition. The effects of memantine on performance were studied with the aid of psychomotor tests and a behaviour investigation relating to activities of daily living (ADL). The tolerability of memantine was assessed on the basis of the doctor's global assessment and of entries on structured documentation forms (DOTES/TWIS). Further safety parameters--in the form of clinicochemical tests and measurements of blood pressure and heart rate--were also monitored during the study. On both the psychopathological measurement level (SCAG, global assessment of the change in the patient's condition) and the behavioural level (GBS), confirmatory statistical analysis brought to light significant differences between memantine and placebo (p less than or equal to 0.05), these differences showing a superiority of memantine. The tolerability of memantine was good in the main. The observed adverse reactions were not serious and, except in 3 patients, were rated as causing little or no impairment. The present clinical study demonstrates the efficacy of memantine in patients suffering from mostly moderate dementia syndrome. Clinical and statistically relevant improvements in the dementia-induced disturbances were found on the both the psychopathological level (SCAG, CGI) and the behavioural level (GBS). On the performance level also, the ADL behaviour investigation detected a highly significant improvement in the quality of performance of instrumented activities of daily living under memantine. Also the time taken to carry out these tasks was significantly reduced in comparison with placebo.

The effects of two derivatives of 2-aminoadamantane, enantiomers J447H and J579, on the behavior of male and female C57Bl/6J mice were studied using a modified light/dark test. The substances differed by their effects on the behavior of male mice. J579 reduced the number of rearings. J447H in a dose of 1 mg/kg affected more parameters: it reduced exploratory activity 1 h after administration and stimulated exploratory and motor activity in 2 h. In female mice, J447H significantly reduced the number of peepings into holes in 2 h after administration. The results indicate that further analysis of the effects of J579 and especially J447H is required.
