Inhibition of monoamine oxidase by indole-5,6-dicarbonitrile derivatives.
New
Suponitsky et al., Yaroslavl', Russia. In Bioorg Med Chem Lett, 04 Mar 2015
UNASSIGNED: Recent studies have found that phthalonitrile derivatives are remarkably potent inhibitors of human monoamine oxidase (MAO) A and B. In an attempt to further determine the structure-activity relationships (SARs) for MAO inhibition by this class of compounds and to discover novel potent MAO inhibitors, the present study investigated the MAO inhibition properties of a series consisting of indole-5,6-dicarbonitrile derivatives.

Review
New
Douglas et al., Philadelphia, United States. In Ann Clin Transl Neurol, Nov 2014
Multiple adjuvant therapies with various mechanisms of action have been studied (N-methyl D-aspartate [NMDA]-receptor antagonists, MAO-B inhibitors, tetracycline-class antibiotics, and others), but none have shown a clear positive effect in HAND.

New
Impact
Clarke et al., In Lancet, Oct 2014
BACKGROUND: Whether initial treatment for Parkinson's disease should consist of levodopa, dopamine agonists, or monoamine oxidase type B inhibitors (MAOBI) is uncertain.

New
Impact
Lee et al., Taejŏn, South Korea. In Nat Med, Aug 2014
Here, we show that reactive astrocytes aberrantly and abundantly produce the inhibitory gliotransmitter GABA by monoamine oxidase-B (Maob) and abnormally release GABA through the bestrophin 1 channel.
Pharmacological treatment of Parkinson disease: a review.
Review
New
Impact
Lang et al., Hamilton, Canada. In Jama, May 2014
RESULTS: Although levodopa is the most effective medication available for treating the motor symptoms of Parkinson disease, in certain instances (eg, mild symptoms, tremor as the only or most prominent symptom, aged <60 years) other medications (eg, monoamine oxidase type B inhibitors [MAOBIs], amantadine, anticholinergics, β-blockers, or dopamine agonists) may be initiated first to avoid levodopa-related motor complications.
