Efficacy and Safety of CDP-choline in Patients With Methamphetamine Dependence

2014-08-27 03:18:14 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of the study is to determine if cytidine 5'diphosphocholine (CDP-choline, a naturally occurring chemical in your body) has efficacy in reducing the methamphetamine craving of the subjects with methamphetamine dependence craving and helping them maintain the abstinence. In addition, investigators will measure the brain N-acetyl aspartate (a biologic marker for neuronal viability) level of participants to determine if brain deficits induced by methamphetamine may recover by taking CDP-choline.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An autosomal recessive fructose metabolism disorder due to deficient fructose-1-phosphate aldolase (EC 2.1.2.13) activity, resulting in accumulation of fructose-1-phosphate. The accumulated fructose-1-phosphate inhibits glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis, causing severe hypoglycemia following ingestion of fructose. Prolonged fructose ingestion in infants leads ultimately to hepatic failure and death. Patients develop a strong distaste for sweet food, and avoid a chronic course of the disease by remaining on a fructose- and sucrose-free diet.

Donor of choline in biosynthesis of choline-containing phosphoglycerides.

An enzyme that is active in the first step of choline phosphoglyceride (lecithin) biosynthesis by catalyzing the phosphorylation of choline to phosphorylcholine in the presence of ATP. Ethanolamine and its methyl and ethyl derivatives can also act as acceptors. EC 2.7.1.32.

A condition produced by a deficiency of CHOLINE in animals. Choline is known as a lipotropic agent because it has been shown to promote the transport of excess fat from the liver under certain conditions in laboratory animals. Combined deficiency of choline (included in the B vitamin complex) and all other methyl group donors causes liver cirrhosis in some animals. Unlike compounds normally considered as vitamins, choline does not serve as a cofactor in enzymatic reactions. (From Saunders Dictionary & Encyclopedia of Laboratory Medicine and Technology, 1984)

An enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of D-fructose 1,6-bisphosphate and water to D-fructose 6-phosphate and orthophosphate. EC 3.1.3.11.
