Evidence On The New Drug Lumateperone (Iti-007) For Psychiatric And Neurological Disorders.

Evidence On The New Drug Lumateperone (Iti-007) For Psychiatric And Neurological Disorders. CNS Neurol Disord Drug Targets. 2020 Jun 01;: Authors: Mazza M, Marano G, Traversi G, Sani G, Janiri L Abstract Lumateperone (ITI-007) is a tosylate salt with binding affinities to receptors implicated in the therapeutic actions of antipsychotic medications, including the serotonin 5HT2A receptors, dopamine D2 and D1 receptors and the serotonin transporter. It has a unique mechanism of action because it simultaneously modulates serotonin, dopamine, and glutamate neurotransmission, implicated in serious mental illness. It can be considered a multi-target-directed ligand and a multifunctional modulator of serotoninergic system with possible precognitive, antipsychotic, antidepressant and anxiolytic properties. Lumateperone has been investigated as a novel agent for the treatment of schizophrenia, but it represents a new potential option for other psychiatric and neurological diseases, such as behavioural symptoms of dementia or Alzheimer's Disease, sleep disturbances, bipolar depression. Besides, it has demonstrated a favourable safety profile without significant extrapyramidal side effects, hyperprolactinemia or changes in cardiometabolic or endocrine factors versus placebo. Additional studies are warranted to confirm and examine benefit of lumateperone and possible therapeutic targets. This paper is a comprehensive and thorough summary of the most important findin...

What exactly is psychosis? What happens in the brain of a person with schizophrenia who is hallucinating? Schizophrenic Rachel Star Withers shares her personal hallucinations and delusions and Dr. Joseph Goldberg, who specializes in researching what goes on in the brain when someone is experiencing psychosis, joins to break down how the brain functions during psychotic episodes. Host Rachel Star Withers, a diagnosed schizophrenic, and co-host Gabe Howard delve into these intense subjects in this episode of Inside Schizophrenia.  Highlights from “Psychosis in Schizophrenia” Episode [02:13]  Rachel, do...

I’m a little dumb-founded whenever I run across a prescribing trend that goes against all of the available empirical evidence for common sense use of a medication. Nowhere is this more evident than with the prescription of atypical antipsychotic medications. It wouldn’t be too far a stretch to suggest that such prescriptions have become like Prozac prescriptions in the 1990s, the latest medication fad. But atypical antipsychotics, like Seroquel (quetiapine fumarate), are far more complex with far more problematic side effects than drugs like Prozac, and should only be prescribed for on-label use. The Washingto...

Conclusion: This novel technology discriminates and quantifies subtle differences in behavior and neurological impairments in subjects afflicted with neurological injury/disease. KINARM assessments can be incorporated into multi-center trials (e.g., monitoring stroke motor recovery: NCT02928393). Further studies will determine if KINARM Labs can demonstrate a clinical effect with fewer subjects over a shorter trial period. Disclosures/funding: Dr. Stephen Scott is the inventor of KINARM and CSO of BKIN Technologies.   Multiplexed mass spectrometry assay identifies neurodegeneration biomarkers in CSF Presenter: Chelsky...

The trouble with a title like Brain Health for Life is that it could mean many things, even with a descriptive subtitle like Beyond Pills, Politics, and Popular Diets. Fortunately, this is not a collection of crossword puzzles or Sudoku exercises, nor is it a rehashing of either play-it-safe or alarmist claims. Instead, Karen V. Unger has written an engrossing, timely, and well-researched book about the impact of diet and lifestyle on the human brain and overall well-being. Taking a whole-person, nutrition-based approach — with the assistance of nutritional therapy practitioner LuAnne H. Cavender — Un...
