DVS is the main metabolite of the antidepressant/anxiolytic medication Venlafaxine (Effexor). Like parent compound, DVS is an antidepressant inhibiting both serotonin (5-HT) and norepinephrine (NE) reuptake. However, no studies to date describe the in vivo potency of this drug on monoamines reuptake. Consequently, it appears essential to determine the potency of DVS in human subjects using a wide dose range in order to determine at which dose(s) it starts inhibiting 5-HT and NE reuptake. The investigators are interested in learning whether there is a gender difference in the dose of the study medication at which NE reuptake inhibition occurs.

The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of desvenlafaxine succinate SR in healthy male and female Chinese subjects. The amount of drug in the body and the...
Desvenlafaxine succinate (DVS) is a potent and selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI). This study will investigate the safety, efficacy, and tolerability of DVS...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the relative difference in Pharmacokinetics (PK) between extensive metabolizers (EMs) and poor metabolizers (PMs) is the same with desvenlafaxi...
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety of desvenlafaxine succinate sustained release tablets during 10-month open-label treatment of Japanese subjects with...
The primary purpose of this study is to compare the long-term efficacy and safety of desvenlafaxine succinate sustained release versus placebo in adults with Major Depressive Disorder, us...
Succinate has been recognized as one of the most important bio-based building block chemicals due to its numerous potential applications. However, efficient methods for the production of succinate fro...
Aberrant succinate accumulation emerges as a unifying mechanism for inflammation and oxidative stress. This study aims to investigate whether curcumin ameliorates hepatic fibrosis via blocking succina...
Succinate accumulates during ischemia, and its oxidation at reperfusion drives injury. The mechanism of ischemic succinate accumulation is controversial and is proposed to involve reversal of mitochon...
Ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury occurs when blood supply to an organ is disrupted and then restored, and underlies many disorders, notably myocardial infarction and stroke. While reperfusion of ische...
In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Peruzzotti-Jametti et al. (2018) demonstrate how neural stem cells, transplanted in a mouse model of multiple sclerosis, respond to extracellular succinate and modula...
A cyclohexanol and phenol derivative and metabolite of venlafaxine that functions as a SEROTONIN AND NORADRENALINE REUPTAKE INHIBITOR (SNRI) and is used as an ANTIDEPRESSIVE AGENT.
Enzymes that catalyze the first step leading to the oxidation of succinic acid by the reversible formation of succinyl-CoA from succinate and CoA with the concomitant cleavage of ATP to ADP (EC 22.214.171.124) or GTP to GDP (EC 126.96.36.199) and orthophosphate. Itaconate can act instead of succinate and ITP instead of GTP.EC 6.2.1.-.
An enzyme that plays a role in the GLUTAMATE and butanoate metabolism pathways by catalyzing the oxidation of succinate semialdehyde to SUCCINATE using NAD+ as a coenzyme. Deficiency of this enzyme, causes 4-hydroxybutyricaciduria, a rare inborn error in the metabolism of the neurotransmitter 4-aminobutyric acid (GABA).
A flavoprotein containing oxidoreductase that catalyzes the dehdyrogenation of SUCCINATE to fumerate. In most eukaryotic organisms this enzyme is a component of mitochondrial electron transport complex II.
An enzyme that catalyzes the oxidation of succinate semialdehyde to SUCCINIC ACID. It plays a role in the metabolism of GLUTAMATE; TYROSINE; and butanoate.
