Methods to assess neuronal receptor functions are needed in toxicology and for drug development. Human-based test systems that allow studies on glutamate signalling are still scarce. To address this issue, we developed and characterized pluripotent stem cell (PSC)-based neural cultures capable of forming a functional network. Starting from a stably...

The large percentage of adults with major depressive disorder (MDD) insufficiently responding and/or tolerating conventional monoamine-based antidepressants invites the need for mechanistically novel treatments. Convergent evidence implicates glutamatergic signaling as a potential therapeutic target in MDD. The synthesis herein of preclinical and c...

The ongoing outbreak of Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a matter of great concern. Although the mortality rate caused by this virus is less than that of SARS and MERS, it is showing higher efficacy in terms of human-to-human transmission. Several strategies have been taken by scientists and researchers worldwide to combat this virus. Numerou...

Background and purpose: Cyclosporine (Cyc) is a calcineurin inhibitor used in immunosuppressive therapy that may cause psychological problems such as depression. Previous investigations have shown the positive antidepressant effects of dextromethorphan (Dxt). Therefore, the aim of this study was the evaluation of the Dxt effect on Cyc-induced depre...
Häufigste Ursache des akuten (bis zu 3 Wochen Dauer) oder subakuten (3–8 Wochen) Hustens ist ein viraler Infekt, der bei ansonsten gesunden Personen meist spontan abklingt. Einige pflanzliche Kombinationspräparate, Ambroxol und das Antitussivum Dextromethorphan erleichtern den Husten und verkürzen dessen Dauer. Antibiotika haben keinen Einfluss auf...

The glutamatergic system has emerged as a novel pathway for treating major depressive disorder (MDD) with the focus on producing both rapid and sustained antidepressant effects. Dextromethorphan is a noncompetitive N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist that has produced antidepressant-like effects in forced swim and tail suspension tests ...

The outbreak of novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) virus continually led to infect a large population worldwide. SARS-CoV-2 utilizes its NSP6 and Orf9c proteins to interact with sigma receptors that are implicated in lipid remodeling and ER stress response, to infect cell...

Introduction: Postoperative pain following third molar removal is one of the most common and unpleasant complications encountered in routine surgical practice. Various methods have been advocated to minimize the postoperative pain: preemptive analgesia is one of those found to be effective. Objective: The aim of this study was to compare the preemp...
