The company has a proven platform for discovery of novel compounds that work through a unique mechanism to modulate -- rather than block or over-activate -- NMDA receptors and enhance synaptic plasticity, the foundation of neural cell communication.
Overactivity or underactivity of the GLU NMDA receptor has emerged as scientifically plausible mechanisms underlying psychotic and mood disorders.
Furthermore, these observations are also in line with evidence that dysfunction of hippocampal NMDA receptors causes severe amnesia.
MK-801, which is an NMDA receptor antagonist, was administered intraperitoneally twice a day (at 9:00h and 16:00h) at a dose of 0.
One theory has held that fibromyalgia "windup" painin which repeated touches create pain that intensifies with each new contactis caused by an abnormality in the spinal cord structures that process NMDA.
Ketamine, a nociceptive antagonist of NMDA receptors, can prevent the induction of central sensitization caused by stimulation of peripheral nociception as well as blocking the wind-up phenomenon.
Due to the lack of scientific data on the nutritional supplement, NMDA, and having to rely on manufactures' claims and anectodtal reports regarding the effectiveness of NMDA supplementation in increasing endogenous testosterone levels, it is tenuous at best to assume that the NMDA product may prove beneficial as a means in which to increase muscle performance associated with heavy resistance training.
In behaviour tests, so called eyeblink conditioning, animals with and without NMDA receptors in the primary motor cortex had to learn to link a tone with a subsequent electrical stimulus of the eyelid.
Conclusion: Regulation of NMDA NR2B receptor-ERK/CREB signaling maybe the targets for the antinoci-ceptive effects of OMT on a chronic neuropathic pain model induced by chronic constrictive injury of the sciatic nerve.
The Subunit-selective NMDA Receptor Modulators being developed by Mnemosyne presents an innovative strategy for developing new drugs for neuropsychiatric diseases and we look forward to working with the Mnemosyne team to bring these new candidates to the clinic, said Peter Barrett, Partner, Atlas Venture.
