The k 3 value is used as an index of regional AChE activity. C T trepresenting the theoretical curve for the total radioactivity; C M tthe metabolite; Cs tthe authentic tracer. Positron Emission Tomography and Autoradiography: Another merit of intravenous injection, compared with oral administration, is to achieve high drug concentration in the brain from minimal dose, which is important from ethical point of view. We report the identification of 7 which had good Donepezil is a reversible inhibitor that exhibits high specificity for centrally active AChE Yamanishi, ; Rho and Lipson, ; Rogers et al, Send a copy to your email.
The antibody-based immunotherapies carry a number of disadvantages such as the high cost of the antibodies, their Acute stress facilitates long-lasting changes in cholinergic gene expression.

Kinetic modeling of N -[ 11 C]methylpiperidinyl propionate: In the case of reversible cholinesterase inhibitors such as tacrine and donepezil, inhibition of enzyme activity can be partially reversed by dilution, because of dissociation of the inhibitor from the enzyme with time Hunter et al, ; Dawson, ; Kosasa et al, The major difference of in vivo experiment from in vitro and ex vivo experiments is the ability to evaluate the effects of intrinsic acetylcholine as an inhibitor and the strong tissue-binding effects of donepezil.
J Pharmacokinet Biopharm 5: Donepezil reduced AChE activity uniformly in the cerebral cortex compared with the baseline in each AD patient, and the mean reduction rate in the cerebral cortex was Figure 7 Relation between the plasma donepezil concentration and the percent inhibition of brain AChE activity. The plasma IC 50 value of donepezil was estimated from plasma donepezil concentrations and cerebral cortical mean AChE inhibition rates measured by positron emission tomography, using one-parameter model.
Eur J Pharmacol From the time—activity curve of authentic tracer in the brain, MRT min of authentic tracer was calculated in each dose experiment, which was 7.

With a bolus injection, since the plasma curve is simple in itself, that is, representing the response to an impulsive input, it would be much easier to determine the time of reaching the steady state with regard to the distribution volume of donepezil between plasma and brain by analysis of the shape of the curve, compared with infusion.
Initial hit compound Z Donepezil was intravenously administered to awake monkey by single bolus injection in a volume of 0.
The image data were reconstructed, and regions of interest ROIs were placed in the frontal, temporal, parietal and occipital cortices on the PET image of the brain with reference to the corresponding MRI of each monkey brain and then the time—activity curve in ROIs were obtained. Limited donepezil inhibition of acetylcholinesterase measured with positron emission tomography in living Alzheimer cerebral cortex.
Another cannula was put into the femoral artery of the other leg to obtain arterial blood samples. This discovery triggered development of cholinesterase inhibitors such as donepezil with the aim to raise acetylcholine levels in the brain by blocking acetylcholinesterase AChE.
