Tourettes Syndrome Nicotine And Animal Models

Tourette's disorder (TD) is a neuropsychiatry disorder with childhood onset that is characterized largely by the expression of sudden, rapid and brief, recurrent, non-rhythmic, stereotyped motor movements (motor tics) and sounds (vocal tics) that are experienced as irresistible, but can be suppressed for varying lengths of time.1 These motoric symptoms range from relatively mild to very severe over the course of a patient's lifetime.23 Most patients with TD also exhibit comorbid neuropsychiatry features including obsessive compulsive symptoms,4 inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity,56 emotional liability, anxiety,78 and associated visual-motor deficits.9 Problems with extreme temper or aggressive behavior are also frequent,10-12 as are school refusal and learning disabilities.1314 While the specific etiology of TD is currently unknown, some believe that the disorder is caused by pathophysiology of cortical-striato-thalamo-cortical circuits in the brain.15 Several lines of evidence...

Tourettes Syndrome

Tourette's syndrome is a neuropsychiatric syndrome that typically presents in young children and is characterized by both motor and vocal tics (abrupt, rapid, repetitive, nonrhythmic, stereotyped, temporally suppressible movement vocalization). Premonitory urges accompany these tics that can range from simple movements vocalizations, such as blinking, sniffling, or barking, to the more complex squatting, twirling, or coprolalia (obscene utterances). Tic severity and type fluctuate over time, usually becoming less severe or nonexistent into adulthood.

MicroRNAs in Human Disease

The expanding inventory of human miRNAs along with their highly diverse expression patterns and high number of potential target mRNAs suggest that miRNAs are involved in a wide variety of human diseases. One is spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a paediatric neurodegenerative disease caused by reduced protein levels or loss-of-function mutations of the survival of motor neurons (SMN) gene.116 A mutation in the target site of miR-189 in the human SLITRK1 gene was recently shown to be associated with Tourette's syn-drome,117 while another recent study reported that the hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA genome interacts with a host-cell miRNA, the liver-specific miR-122a, to facilitate its replication in the host.118 Other diseases in which miRNAs or their processing machinery have been implicated include fragile X mental retardation (FXMR) caused by absence of the fragile X mental retardation protein (FMRP),119,120 DiGeorge syndrome,121 human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) replication and coronary...

Neurobehavioral Interpretations and Clinical Importance of Stereotypy

Stereotyped behaviors are generally thought to reflect the dysfunction of the central nervous system (Robbins et al. 1990 Teitelbaum et al. 1990). Persons with mental retardation, autism, schizophrenia, Tourette's syndrome, Hun-tington's disease, or obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) often exhibit excessively repetitious and apparently purposeless behaviors as do persons who have used excessive amounts of amphetamine over multi-day periods. Substantial clinical and experimental evidence points to

Performance Deficits By Nicotinic Drugs

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is among the most prevalent of childhood and adolescent disorders, accounting for up to 50 of clinic visits in these populations. The predominant characteristics of ADHD, inattention and dis-tractibility, are also among the symptoms associated with prenatal and early postnatal exposure to a variety of toxicants, as well as with a wide variety of neurologic and psychiatric disorders including AD, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, Tourettes syndrome, and schizophrenia. The primary therapeutic agents utilized for ADHD and other disorders where distractibility and inattention are prominent features include methylphenidate, dextroamphetamine, mixed amphetamine isomers, and pemoline. While the efficacy of these agents has been demonstrated, they are also associated with a wide variety of adverse effects including insomnia, decreased

Other CNS indications

Despite clinical trials for several indications, no molecule specifically designed to block the a2-adrenoceptor has been successfully developed as a drug, although a2-adrenoceptor antagonist activity may play an important role in antidepressants such as mirtazepine (Langer 1997). In addition to their use as antihypertensives, selective centrally-acting a2-adrenoceptor agonists are used as adjuncts to general anesthesia, in the treatment of opiate withdrawal, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and Tourette's syndrome the anaesthetic and analgesic actions of a2-adrenoceptor agonists appearing to be mediated by the a2A-adrenoceptor.

Dopamine Transporters DATs

The importance of DAT can be exemplified by the inherent brain reward system where increased dopamine levels mediate the euphoria searched for in drug abuse. One of the most addictive drugs known, cocaine, exerts its effect by inhibiting DAT and thus by increasing synaptic dopamine levels leading to the desired euphoric effect. Several studies have shown that the density of DAT is reduced in patients with degenerative brain disorders, such as in Parkinson's disease 37-40 and in dementia with Lewy bodies 37,41,42 , whereas DAT density is increased in patients with Tourette's syndrome.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

More recent work in the field of functional brain imaging has elucidated paroxetine's effect on neural processing in patients suffering from OCD. Saxena et al. (2002) demonstrated that paroxetine treatment led to significant decreases in metabolic activity in the right caudate, bilateral orbitofrontal thalamus, and bilateral striatum. This group later published a study (Saxena et al. 2003) indicating that pretreatment hyperintensities in the right caudate were the imaging findings most predictive of response to paroxetine. Such findings, which implicate striatal far more than limbic structures, have lent credence to speculation that OCD is more nosologically similar to tic disorders such as Tourette's syndrome than to anxiety disorders (Grados et al. 2001).

Tic Disorders with Childhood Onset

Tourette syndrome Tics are common in children, affecting as many as 20 of the school-age population. In most of these children, the tics are transient and require no intervention. An estimated 1 of children show a pattern of chronic tics that endure over time. Tourette syndrome, defined by the presence of both motor and vocal tics persisting for at least a year, affects 3-8 1,000 children (Scahill et al. 2005). Even among children with chronic tics, many cases are mild, and medication is not warranted. Children with tic disorders appear to be at higher risk for co-occurring conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Thus, the first step in selecting medication for the treatment of children with tic disorders is to identify the most important source of impairment tics, ADHD, or OCD. The use of pharma-cotherapy in children with tic disorders should always be combined with education for the child and the family about the...

Methine Butyrophenone

Pimozide is available as an antipsychotic limited to use as an alternate to haloperidol in the treatment of Tourette's syndrome (TS). It is indicated for patients with severe symptoms who cannot tolerate or do not respond to haloperidol. The adverse reaction profde is similar to that of other neuroleptics however, serious ventricular arrhythmias can occur sudden unexpected deaths have been reported with high doses.

Substituents Of Risperidone

Haloperidol Metabolism

Haloperidol, (Haldol), the representative of several related classes of aromatic butylpiperidine derivatives, is a potent antipsychotic useful in schizophrenia and in psychoses associated with brain damage. It is frequently chosen as the agent to terminate mania and often used in therapy for Gilles de la Tourette syndrome. Haloperidol-induced dyskinesias may involve neurotoxicological metabolite similar to dopaminergic toxicant MPP+ (Fig. 12.8).

Physiology and disease relevance

The dopaminergic system has been the focus of much research over the past 40 years because several pathological conditions such as Parkinson's disease, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, manic depression, Tourette's syndrome, and hyperprolactinaemia are believed to be associated with either dopaminergic system dysfunction or side effect profiles of drugs used to treat these disorders. Extensive work has also been performed to analyse the genetic relationship between dopamine receptors and the diseases mentioned above (reviewed in Missale et al. 1998). However, the results that have been produced are equivocal. Thus no linkage of D2 and D4 receptors to bipolar disorder has been found (Missale et al. 1998) and the association between the dopamine D2 receptor gene and susceptibility to alcoholism is controversial (Missale et al. 1998). More recently, some evidence has been reported for the genetic association of dopamine D4 receptor polymorphisms with behavioural disorders such as...

Miscellaneous Medical Uses For Antipsychotic Drugs

Many antipsychotic agents can prevent vomiting due to specific etiologies when given in relatively low, nonsedative doses (see Chapter 37). Antipsychotic drugs are useful in the management of several syndromes with psychiatric features that also are characterized by movement disorders (e.g., Tourette's syndrome and Huntington's disease). Haloperidol currently is regarded as a drug of choice for these conditions, although it probably is not unique in its antidyskinetic actions. Pimozide also is used clonidine and tricyclic antidepressants (e.g., nortriptyline) also may be effective in Tourette's syndrome. Antipsychotic drugs are not useful in the management of withdrawal from opioids, and their use in the management of withdrawal from barbiturates, other sedatives, or alcohol is contraindicated because of the high risk of seizures. These drugs can be used safely and effectively in psychoses associated with chronic alcoholism especially the syndrome known as alcoholic hallucinosis.

Pharmacotherapy Of Anxiety

Antidepressants tend to provide a more sustained and continuous improvement of the symptoms of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder than do the stimulants and do not induce tics or other abnormal movements sometimes associated with stimulants. Indeed, desipramine and nortriptyline may effectively treat tic disorders, either in association with the use of stimulants or in patients with both attention deficit disorder and Tourette's syndrome. Antidepressants also are leading choices in the treatment of severe anxiety disorders, including panic disorder with agoraphobia, generalized anxiety disorder, social phobia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder, as well as for the common comorbidity of anxiety in depressive illness. Antidepressants, especially SSRIs, also are employed in the management of posttraumatic stress disorder, which is marked by anxiety, startle, painful recollection of the traumatic events, and disturbed sleep. Initially, anxious patients often tolerate nonsedating...

Patenting Systems

A patent is a grant by the government of exclusive rights for a limited time with respect to a new and useful invention, rights to prevent others from making or selling the invention in a limited territory as defined by the patent-issuing authority. A patent is not a right to sell the invention. The word patent means open, and the words, letter patent, mean an announcement made to all that the inventor has been awarded rights to the invention. Open here means without having to break any seal, as was the custom in the decrees issued in the past by the sovereign governments. Note that letters patent are not restricted to inventions, as even today these are issued to appoint judges in the United Kingdom. Historically, patents were issued on elaborate stationary, as they still are to some extent. The point about the rights to exercise an invention, vis-a-vis to prevent others from practicing, needs further elaboration. The new chemical entity patent for sildenafil citrate expired in March...

Therapeutic Uses

The capacity of clonidine to activate postsynaptic a2 receptors in vascular smooth muscle has been exploited in a limited number of patients whose autonomic failure is so severe that reflex sympathetic responses on standing are absent postural hypotension is thus marked. Since the central effect of clonidine on blood pressure is unimportant in these patients, the drug can elevate blood pressure and improve the symptoms of postural hypotension. Among the other off-label uses of clonidine are atrial fibrillation, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), constitutional growth delay in children, cyclosporine-associated nephrotoxicity, Tourette's syndrome, hyper-hidrosis, mania, posthepatic neuralgia, psychosis, restless leg syndrome, ulcerative colitis, and allergy-induced inflammatory reactions in patients with extrinsic asthma.

Clinical Disorders

A third classification of disorders related to nicotinic function is those where there is no known loss or genetic alteration of nicotinic receptors, but there is evidence that stimulating nicotinic receptors may have therapeutic value. These disorders include ADHD, anxiety and depression, and Tourette's syndrome. Tourette's syndrome (TS) is a neurological disorder characterized by motor and vocal tics, often accompanied by hyperactivity, anxiety, fear, and symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder. Studies have demonstrated that nicotine administration (via transdermal patch or nicotine gum) can potentiate the action of traditional neuroleptics and is effective in managing the symptoms of TS.3132 These effects are fairly long lasting, with improvements in symptoms being reported up to four weeks after two days of nicotine exposure.33 It is hypothesized that this effect is related to the regulation of dopamine resulting from the desensitization of nicotinic receptors through chronic...

Gender

Nicotinic agents have been studied in subjects of all ages. Children as young as 10 have participated in studies of nicotine patch in Tourette's syndrome,43 and elderly subjects as old as 80 have participated in AD studies.16 The question of age affecting nicotine tolerance and absorption has not been directly studied. It is obvious that the variability in body mass associated with different age groups (children vs. adults vs. elderly subjects) will impact the effect of a given dose of nicotine. However, subjects of all ages have been successfully used in nicotinic investigations when issues of dosing and side effect management have been addressed.
