Available therapies effectively manage pain and inflammation in early-stage disease, but patients often continue to experience impaired HRQoL. Thus, there remains a need for new therapies with novel mechanisms that can stop disease progression, potentially reverse damage caused by AxSpA and improve HRQoL i...

The effects of the new structural analogue of benactyzine, a derivative of fluorencarbonic acid, on monoamine levels in brain structures were studied in male Wistar rats with experimental depression. Depressive state in rats was modeled by single injection of reserpine (4 mg/kg). The concentrations of norepinephrine (NE), dopamine (DA), serotonin (5-HT), and their metabolites 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC), homovanilic acid (HVA), and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) in the hypothalamus and striatum were measured by HPLC. It was found that preliminary treatment (30 days) with the derivative of fluorencarbonic ac...
