Exploratory phase 1, first in human, open label, non-randomized, single-dose study of PRX-105, administered intravenously by slow bolus injection to 10 healthy volunteers. The objective is to evaluate the pharmacokinetic profile of PRX-105 without any significant physiological effect in healthy volunteers after a single, intravenous microdose administration.
Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label

The level of acetylcholinesterase is suspected to correlate with postoperative delirium. The investigators therefore score patients once preoperatively and twice postoperatively with the g...
To establish efficacy of Lu AE58054 as adjunctive therapy to acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AChEIs) for symptomatic treatment of patients with mild-moderate Alzheimer's disease (AD).
The objective of this 3-month study is to assess the safety and efficacy of EHT 0202 in addition to acetylcholinesterase inhibitor in patients suffering from Alzheimer's Disease.
Cholinergic deficiency in the brain can be related to gait and balance problems in Parkinson disease (PD). Recent clinical trials suggested a beneficial role of acetylcholinesterase inhibi...
Inhibition of acetylcholinesterase has been a effective treatment for Alzheimer's disease. Octohydroaminoacridine, a new acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, is a potential treatment for Alzhei...
Organophosphorus agents such as sarin and soman that phosphylate the active site serine of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase are notorious and pernicious, not only because they have been used by tyrants...
Background Almost 30% of the premature infants have low body weight and bone mineral density due to prematurity. There is no consensus of screening premature neonates for metabolic bone disease; there...
Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors are widely used for a variety of medical, agricultural and public health purposes. Consequently, exposure is highly possible during lifetime. However, their systematic ...
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia. The acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitors are the most viable therapeutic target for its symptomatic treatment. The present study was ai...
The dependence of the activity of acetylcholinesterase from electric eel at a pH value range of 4.8-9.8 (phosphate buffer), regarding acetylcholine and acetylthiocholine hydrolysis, was determined at ...
An organophosphorus insecticide that inhibits acetylcholinesterase.
An organophosphate insecticide that inhibits monoamine oxidase and acetylcholinesterase. It has been shown to be genotoxic.
An enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of ACETYLCHOLINE to CHOLINE and acetate. In the CNS, this enzyme plays a role in the function of peripheral neuromuscular junctions. EC 184.108.40.206.
Various salts of a quaternary ammonium oxime that reconstitute inactivated acetylcholinesterase, especially at the neuromuscular junction, and may cause neuromuscular blockade. They are used as antidotes to organophosphorus poisoning as chlorides, iodides, methanesulfonates (mesylates), or other salts.
Conditions characterized by impaired transmission of impulses at the NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION. This may result from disorders that affect receptor function, pre- or postsynaptic membrane function, or ACETYLCHOLINESTERASE activity. The majority of diseases in this category are associated with autoimmune, toxic, or inherited conditions.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
