Title : Discovery of a Potent Dual Inhibitor of Acetylcholinesterase and Butyrylcholinesterase with Antioxidant Activity that Alleviates Alzheimer-like Pathology in Old APP\/PS1 Mice - Viayna_2021_J.Med.Chem_64_812

Abstract : The combination of the scaffolds of the cholinesterase inhibitor huprine Y and the antioxidant capsaicin results in compounds with nanomolar potencies toward human acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) that retain or improve the antioxidant properties of capsaicin. Crystal structures of their complexes with AChE and BChE revealed the molecular basis for their high potency. Brain penetration was confirmed by biodistribution studies in C57BL6 mice, with one compound (5i) displaying better brain/plasma ratio than donepezil. Chronic treatment of 10 month-old APP/PS1 mice with 5i (2 mg/kg, i.p., 3 times per week, 4 weeks) rescued learning and memory impairments, as measured by three different behavioral tests, delayed the Alzheimer-like pathology progression, as suggested by a significantly reduced Abeta42/Abeta40 ratio in the hippocampus, improved basal synaptic efficacy, and significantly reduced hippocampal oxidative stress and neuroinflammation. Compound 5i emerges as an interesting anti-Alzheimer lead with beneficial effects on cognitive symptoms and on some underlying disease mechanisms.

Title : Long-term improvement of slow-channel congenital myasthenic syndrome with fluoxetine - Colomer_2006_Neuromuscul.Disord_16_329

Abstract : We report on a 15-year-old patient who was diagnosed with congenital myasthenic syndrome (CMS) at the age of 7 months. At initial diagnosis, the CMS was not further characterized. The patient was treated for several years with the anticholinesterase drug (Mestinon), without clinical benefit. The patient deteriorated progressively and became dependent on home nocturnal ventilatory support, being unable to take part in daily life activities at age of 12 years. At age 14, the slow-channel syndrome mutation CHRNE L269F (805C>T) was detected and acetylcholinesterase inhibitor therapy was immediately stopped. Fluoxetine therapy was started and gradually increased over 2 months. The boy improved dramatically in strength and endurance and was taken off ventilatory support 1 month after the fluoxetine therapy was initiated. The clinical improvement was confirmed by functional respiratory and electrophysiological tests.
