One session of FS induced anxiolytic-like behavior in mice tested in both the EBT and the BBT. This effect of FS was blocked by a previous administration of either picrotoxin or WAY 100635. The 5-HT(1A) compounds produced a clear anxiolytic-like effect in UST animals. By contrast, with low doses of either 8-OH-DPAT (0.01 mg/kg), buspirone (0.03 mg/kg) or indorenate (0.3, 0.6 mg/kg) ST mice showed a decrease in the anti-anxiety-like effect observed after FS. No change in ambulation that could mask the results of the anxiety test was registered.

CBT is an effective, short-term treatment for reducing the anxiety and depressive symptoms that often occur after an individual is diagnosed with cancer or treated for cancer. There is robust evidence that treatment of these psychological symptoms can improve both the quality of life and course of illness in cancer patients, so oncologists and other clinicians need to regularly screen patients with cancer and other chronic life-threatening conditions for anxiety and depression and, if present, actively promote the treatment of these symptoms. This study shows that CBT can be effective for cancer patients even when they are unable to speak.

ERG response amplitudes were significantly (P < 0.05) depressed more than 66% in vehicle-dosed rats after light exposure. ERGs were significantly higher in rats treated with AL-8309A (0.1-30 mg/kg), 8-OH DPAT (0.1-1 mg/kg), buspirone (5-20 mg/kg) or topical ocular with 1.75% AL-8309B. Retinas from AL-8309A and 8-OH DPAT-treated rats were devoid of histologic lesions. Significant protection was measured in rats dosed once 0, 24, or 48 hours before light exposure. Protection provided by dosing with AL-8309B or 8-OH DPAT was inhibited in rats predosed with WAY-100635.

The effects of buspirone on hippocampal pyramidal cells of the CA1 region were examined by means of intracellular recordings in in vitro hippocampal brain slices. Bath administration of buspirone elicited a long lasting hyperpolarization which was mediated by an increase in potassium conductance and resembled the hyperpolarizing component of the response to 5-HT (5-hydroxytryptamine). Buspirone, however, failed to mimic the depolarizing action of 5-HT or to reduce the calcium-activated after hyperpolarization. Quantitative comparisons of the hyperpolarizing responses of 5-HT and buspirone revealed that the maximal hyperpolarization induced by buspirone was significantly smaller than that induced by 5-HT. Since the buspirone induced hyperpolarization was also accompanied by a surmountable antagonism of 5-HT responses, these results indicate that buspirone behaves as a partial agonist at a subpopulation of 5-HT receptors in the CA1 region of the hippocampus. Administration of the buspirone congeners gepirone and isapirone also elicited a hyperpolarization and reduced 5-HT responses, although they lack antidopaminergic activity, indicating that the effects observed with buspirone are unlikely to be mediated through dopamine receptors. These results indicated that novel anxiolytics can discriminate between functional 5-HT receptors. In conjunction with previous biochemical and electrophysiological studies, the present results suggest that their administration might alter the balance of serotonergic actions on postsynaptic neurons.

The present study evaluated the role of various neurotransmitter systems in mediating buspirone's blockade of the fear-potentiated startle effect, where acoustic startle amplitude is normally increase in the presence of a light previously paired with a shock. Large lesions of the dorsal and median raphe nuclei or IP injections of the serotonin antagonists cinanserin (10 mg/kg) or cyproheptadine (5 mg/kg) did not alter fear-potentiated startle, nor did these treatments prevent buspirone (5 or 10 mg/kg SC) from blocking fear-potentiated startle. The 5-HT 1A agonist 8-OH-DPAT (2.5-10.0) did not block fear-potentiated startle even at doses that produced a marked "5-HT syndrome". Another 5-HT 1A agonist, ipsapirone (10-20 mg/kg), blocked potentiated startle only at a very high dose (40 mg/kg). p-Chlorophenylalanine and p-chloroamphetamine did not alter fear-potentiated startle. Finally, pretreatment with the benzodiazepine receptor antagonist RO-15-1788 (1 mg/kg); the opiate antagonist naloxone (2 mg/kg) or the alpha 2-adrenergic antagonist yohimbine (5 mg/kg) did not reduce fear-potentiated startle, nor did they prevent buspirone from blocking fear-potentiated startle. Taken together, the data do not support the hypothesis that buspirone's anxiolytic effects are mediated by actions at 5-HT 1A receptors and more generally indicate that serotonergic neurons do not play an important role in fear-potentiated startle.

The inhibition of forskolin-stimulated adenylate cyclase activity by 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) receptor agonists was measured in rat hippocampal membranes isolated from animals treated with vehicle or islet-activating protein (IAP; pertussis toxin). In vehicle-treated animals, 5-HT, 8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylamino)tetralin, buspirone, and gepirone were potent in inhibiting forskolin-stimulated adenylate cyclase activity with EC50 values of 60, 76, 376, and 530 nM, respectively. IAP treatment reduced by 30-55% the 5-HT1A agonist inhibition of adenylate cyclase activity via 5-HT1A receptors. The data indicate that the inhibitory guanine nucleotide-binding protein or Go (a similar GTP-binding protein of unknown function purified from brain) mediates the 5-HT1A agonist inhibition of hippocampal adenylate cyclase.

In recent years, the inappropriate use of antipsychotics by young Korean men has become a social problem. As military service exemptions are given for mental illness, some men pose as mental health patients to avoid military service. In order to verify the authenticity of mental illnesses, we developed simultaneous analytical methods for the detection of 15 antipsychotics and 2 of their metabolites in hair using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) analysis. The target drugs were modafinil, atomoxetine, aripiprazole, benztropine, buspirone, duloxetine, gabapentin, oxcarbazepine, topiramate, escitalopram, paliperidone, ziprasidone, lamotrigine, clonazepam, levetiracetam, and metabolites of oxcarbazepine and clonazepam. To remove possible contaminants on the hair surface, hair samples were washed twice with methanol and distilled water, and then were extracted with methanol overnight at 38°C. Desipramine-d3 was used as an internal standard. LC-MS/MS analysis was performed on an Agilent 1290 Infinity UHPLC coupled to an AB Sciex Qtrap(®) 5500 MS/MS. The total chromatographic run time was 14min. The following validation parameters were evaluated: selectivity, linearity, limit of detection (LOD), limit of quantification (LOQ), precision, accuracy, matrix effect, and recovery. The LOD and LOQ values for all analytes, except modafinil, ranged from 0.2 to 10pg/mg hair and from 0.2 to 20pg/mg hair, respectively. Good linearity was achieved for most of the analytes in the range of 20-200pg/mg hair. The method showed acceptable precision and accuracy, which were less than 15%, as well as satisfactory matrix effects and recoveries. Furthermore, this method was also applied to the analysis of rat hair samples. The study in rats showed that the concentrations of atomoxetine and aripiprazole in pigmented hair were significantly higher than those in non-pigmented hair. However, no significant difference was observed in the concentration of topiramate between pigmented and non-pigmented hair. This method will be useful in monitoring the inappropriate use of antipsychotics in suspects posing as mental health patients. However, further research is necessary before applying this method to authentic hair samples from mental health patients.

There is a growing appreciation of the heterogeneity of alcoholic patients with implications for treatment intervention. Several recent studies suggest that a minority of alcoholic patients suffer from diagnosable anxiety disorders, although symptoms of anxiety may be present in alcoholics while drinking and in the acute, subacute and protracted periods of abstinence from alcohol. In addition, recent research on biological mechanisms of anxiety may suggest a testable model for examining the existence of an altered biological state associated with symptoms of protracted abstinence in alcoholics, and may suggest an additional rationale for studying newer anxiolytic drugs in the postwithdrawal management of alcoholic patients. In the mid-1970s, Benjamin Kissin made three points regarding the optimal qualities for a tranquilizing drug in the treatment of alcoholism: it should be effective in maintaining individuals in treatment, it should have a low potential for abuse and it should not potentiate the effects of alcohol. Buspirone, a new anxiolytic drug, fulfills the second two criteria. The case for examining anxiolytics with low abuse potential in alcoholic patients is reviewed.

This article reviews psychopharmacology in organ transplant patients, with particular attention to the changes in the metabolism and elimination of drugs during organ insufficiency and drug interactions in the immunosuppressed state. The side effects of psychotropic drugs need to be distinguished from those of immunosuppressants. Antidepressants, including tricyclics, heterocyclics, MAOIs, stimulants, and newer agents, are discussed. Use of neuroleptics for delirium, mania, and other organic disorders is described. Lithium may be more difficult to use in the immediate postoperative period. Anxiolytics, including benzodiazepines and buspirone, are useful depending on the underlying medical problem.

Buspirone, an azapirone derivative and a 5-HT1A partial agonist, is the first nonbenzodiazepine anxiolytic introduced into medicine for the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder. A series of well-controlled clinical trials demonstrated that its anxiolytic properties were similar to those of various benzodiazepines and significantly better than placebo. More recently, antidepressant effects were also observed. Patients with clinical indications for which buspirone seems to be particularly appropriate are those with generalized anxiety disorder, those with chronic anxiety, the anxious elderly, and, perhaps, many patients of all ages who suffer from mixed symptoms of anxiety and depression. Studies conducted with patients suffering from panic disorder have so far been inconclusive, and thus buspirone is, for the present at least, not recommended for routine treatment of panic disorder. Buspirone seems to be most helpful in anxious patients who do not demand immediate gratification or the immediate relief they associate with the benzodiazepine response. Slower and more gradual onset of anxiety relief is balanced by the increased safety and lack of dependency-producing aspects of buspirone. Finally, whether or not buspirone may possess "curative" properties, in addition to "anxiety-suppressant" properties, that allow the patient to improve coping skills with time requires further exploration.

A 52 year old woman on buspirone was prescribed paroxetine for depressive symptoms. She also got papaverine. Within a month she experienced high fever, shivering, tremor, hyper-reflexia, tachycardia (120 bpm), and tracheal cramps, symptoms of the serotonin syndrome. Since both paroxetine and buspirone have serotonergic effects it is probable that the symptoms were caused by the drug combination. She also had ecchymoses on her thighs, probably due to serotonergic effects. The symptoms rapidly decreased after withdrawing paroxetine. Paroxetine, papaverine, and possibly also buspirone interact with cytochrome P450 CYP2D6. They can probably inhibit the metabolism of each other. We recommend observance of serotonergic syndrome symptoms and restricted combination of serotoninergic drugs.

The interaction at 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) receptors of the novel naphtylpiperazine, S 14671 (1-[2-(2-thenoylamino)ethyl]-4[1-(7- methoxynaphtyl)]piperazine), was compared to that of the 5-HT1A ligands, 8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylamino)tetralin hydrobromide (8-OH-DPAT), WY 50,324 [N-(29(4-(2-pyrimidinyl)-1-piperazinyl)ethyl)tricyclo(220.127.116.11(3,7) )- decane-1-carboxamide], (+)-flesinoxan, buspirone and BMY 7378 [(8-[2-[4-(2-methoxyphenyl)- 1-piperazinyl]ethyl]-8-azaspirol[-4-]-decane-7,9-dione 2HCl]. S 14671 showed a very high affinity for 5-HT1A sites (pKi, 9.3) as compared to the reference ligands (pKi values, 9.2, 8.7, 8.7, 7.9 and 8.7, respectively). S 14671 bound in an apparently competitive manner and, in distinction to the reference compounds, possessed a Hill Coefficient (1.4) significantly superior to 1. Although showing low affinity at 5-HT1B and 5-HT3 sites, S 14671 displayed significant affinity at both 5-HT1C and 5-HT2 sites; pKi, 7.8 in each case. Furthermore, S 14671 acted as an antagonist of 5-HT-stimulated phosphoinositide turnover in rat choroid plexus (5-HT1C) and cortex (5-HT2). In vivo, upon s.c. administration, S 14671 acted as a high efficacy agonist in models of 5-HT1A receptor-mediated activity: induction of flat-body posture, spontaneous tail-flicks, hypothermia and corticosterone secretion and inhibition of morphine-induced antinociception. In every test, S 14671 was the most potent compound: it was active at doses as low as 5 micrograms/kg s.c. Relative potency across all tests was S 14671 greater than 8-OH-DPAT greater than WY 50,324 greater than (+)-flesinoxan greater than buspirone with BMY 7378 too weak for comparison to be meaningful. The action of S 14671 in 5-HT1A tests was blocked by BMY 7378 and the 5-HT1A antagonist, (-)-alprenolol, but unaffected by the 5-HT1C/2 antagonist, ritanserin, and the 5-HT3 antagonist, ondansetron. Activation of postsynaptic 5-HT1A receptors was confirmed in 5,7-dihydroxytryptamine-lesioned rats, in which the potency of S 14671 to elicit spontaneous tail-flicks was potentiated. Activation of presynaptic receptors was demonstrated by inhibition of the electrical activity of the dorsal raphe nucleus with the following order of relative potency: S 14671 greater than 8-OH-DPAT greater than WY 50,324 greater than BMY 7378 greater than buspirone. Spiperone, which acts as a pure 5-HT1A antagonist at raphe 5-HT1A receptors, blocked the action of S 14671. In conclusion, S 14671 is a structurally novel ligand manifesting high efficacy and exceptional potency at both pre- and postsynaptic 5-HT1A receptors.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 400 WORDS)

The present study examined whether the effect of stimulation of the nucleus raphe magnus (NRM) is mediated by spinal cord dorsal horn serotonin1A (5-HT1A) receptors in the rat. This hypothesis predicts that nociceptive dorsal horn units inhibited by NRM stimulation or iontophoretic 5-HT application would also be inhibited by iontophoresis of the selective 5-HT1A agonists 8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylamino)tetralin (8-OH-DPAT) and buspirone. A total of 78 dorsal horn wide-dynamic-range neurons were recorded. Overall, 62% of the cells tested (48/78) were responsive to electrical stimulation of the NRM with the predominant response being inhibitory (38/48; 79%). Fifty-eight cells were tested for their response to both NRM stimulation and 8-OH-DPAT iontophoresis: 20/58 cells were inhibited by NRM stimulation and 50% of the cells inhibited by NRM stimulation were also inhibited by 8-OH-DPAT. Fifty-two cells were tested for their response to both NRM stimulation and buspirone iontophoresis: 14/52 cells were inhibited by NRM stimulation with 9/14 similarly inhibited by buspirone. To examine whether exogenously applied serotonin produced an effect through 5-HT1A receptors, the effect of both 5-HT and 8-OH-DPAT iontophoresis was tested on 57 dorsal horn neurons. The majority of cells (25/57) were inhibited by 5-HT application; 15/25 were similarly inhibited by 8-OH-DPAT. The response of 48 dorsal horn cells to 5-HT and buspirone iontophoresis was compared. Forty-four percent (21/48) of the cells were inhibited by 5-HT; 16/21 were also inhibited by buspirone.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Buspirone is disclosed in U.S. Patent No. 3,717,634 as a pharmaceutically active compound that has been found to be effective for the treatment of anxiety disorders and depression. In this randomized, two-treatment, two-period, multidose crossover study, the pharmacokinetics of a once-daily extended-release (ER)formulation of buspirone was compared with that of an immediate-release (IR) formulation of commercially available buspirone. A total of 30 mg of the ER formulation was administered to 36 healthy volunteers once daily for 7 days, and 15 mg of the IR formulation was administered twice daily for 7 days. Pharmacokinetic profiles of buspirone and its metabolite, 1-pyrimidinylpiperazine (1-PP), were obtained at steady state. The bioavailability of buspirone from the ER formulation was more than three times higher than that from the IR formulation at steady state, and that of 1-PP was about 25% less. The mean steady-state Cmax of buspirone from the ER formulation was 46% higher than that from the IR formulation (p < 0.05), and that for 1-PP was lower by 29% (p < 0.05). The mean apparent half-life of buspirone from the ER formulation (9.04 hours) was considerably longer than that observed for the IR formulation (3.06 hours). The median 1-PP/buspirone AUC ratio was much higher for the IR formulation at steady state (24.4) than for the ER formulation (6.44). There were no significant differences in average pharmacokinetic metrics observed in men and women. Based on these observations of the potential benefits of once-daily dosing with the ER product in terms of prolonged buspirone plasma concentrations, a significant increase in the ratio of buspirone to 1-PP concentration with a lower intersubject variation could be achieved that should provide an improvement in the desired therapeutic effects of buspirone.

The anti-conflict activities of diazepam and buspirone were examined on three schedules designed to condition the suppression of licking. The schedules differed in the degree to which they predicted (signalled) the presentation of a conflict inducing electric shock. The first study investigated the effects of three doses of diazepam (0.5, 2, and 5 mg/kg IP) on a predictable, a moderately predictable, and an unpredictable schedule of shock presentation. Diazepam induced a significant increase from baseline in licking during the shock component on all three schedules. These anticonflict effects were the most consistent on the predictable schedule, and least consistent on the unpredictable schedule. A second experiment investigated the anticonflict activity of three doses of buspirone (0.125, 0.25, and 0.625 mg/kg SC) on each of these three schedules. The predictable and moderately predictable schedules failed to detect anticonflict activity at any dose of buspirone. However, the lowest dose (0.125 mg/kg) of buspirone increased shocked licking and the highest dose (0.625 mg/kg) decreased shock component licking on the unpredictable schedule. Thus the unpredictable schedule was sensitive to both anticonflict (anxiolytic) and proconflict (anxiogenic) effects of buspirone.

In the present study we further investigate functions of the neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM) in the mature central nervous system and its implications for animal behaviour. To this end we generated transgenic mice expressing the major NCAM isoform with the largest cytoplasmic domain, NCAM180, under control of a promoter for the small form neurofilament gene. Transgenic mice were also bred with mice deficient in endogenous NCAM (Ncam-/- mice) so that effects of NCAM180 could be analysed in the presence and absence of endogenous NCAM. While overexpression of transgenic NCAM180 was without apparent behavioural or morphological effect, its expression in Ncam-/- mice counteracted NCAM ablation-induced aggressive, anxiety-like and antidepressant-like behaviour. It furthermore prevented a hypersensitivity of Ncam-/- mice to the anxiolytic serotonin1A (5-HT1A) receptor agonist buspirone. Such recovery of emotional behaviour and behavioural 5-HT1A response occurred in spite of misdevelopment of the olfactory bulb and hippocampus that is characteristic of Ncam-/- mice, and without an apparent change in the expression of 5-HT1A binding sites in the brain. Hippocampus- and amygdala-dependent learning, though disturbed in Ncam-/- mice, remained unaffected by the transgenic NCAM180. We suggest an involvement of NCAM180-mediated cell recognition processes in the serotonergic modulation of emotional behaviour in adult mice.

In adult mammals cells generated in the subventricular zone (SVZ) migrate to olfactory bulbs (OB). Functional significance of this continuous neurogenesis is not clear. We injected opossums (Monodelphis domestica) for seven consecutive days with a 5HT(1A) agonist (8-OH-DPAT or buspirone) or its antagonist WAY100635. One hour after each of these injections bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) a marker of dividing cells was also injected. Two months later, when newly generated neurons settled in the OB and matured the ability of these opossums to detect hidden food by olfactory cues was tested. Afterwards, numbers of BrdU-labeled cell nuclei in their OB were counted and a phenotype of labeled cells established. In all groups investigated the majority of new cells differentiated into neurons (55-76%) and a lower proportion into astroglia (6-12%). Numbers of BrdU-labeled cells differed depending on the applied treatment: both agonists of the 5HT(1A) receptor increased these numbers, while its antagonist decreased them. The increased number of new OB interneurons did not change the time required for finding all three food items and therefore did not improve the opossums' performance in this test of the olfactory perception. However, opossums that had the reduced number of new generated OB cells searched longer for each food item and in consequence took three times longer to find all three crickets, than did opossums from other groups. In conclusion, lower numbers of new neurons in the opossums OB correlated with their worse behavioral performance in a test based on olfactory perception.

In the present study we evaluated the effects of the 5-HT(1A) receptor partial agonist, buspirone hydrochloride and the 5-HT(1A) receptor agonist, 8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylamino) tetralin (8-OH-DPAT) on the elevated plus-maze. In addition, the ability of the 5-HT(1A) receptor antagonist, WAY 100635, to reverse the effects of both compounds was determined. 8-OH-DPAT (0.01 0.3 mg/kg, SC) dose-dependently increased the percent time on, and the number of entries to, the open arms of the maze. In a second experiment, WAY 100635 (0.003 0.3 mg/kg, SC) dose-dependently reversed the anxiolytic-like effects of 8-OH-DPAT (0.3 mg/kg, SC). In a third experiment, buspirone (0.3-4.0 mg/kg, SC) dose-dependently decreased the time spent on the open arms of the maze, indicating that it had anxiogenic-like effects. Buspirone also significantly decreased locomotor activity, which was evident in the decreases in the distance travelled on the open arms, closed arms and on the maze as a whole, the total number of arm entries and the mean speed of the animals. In contrast to its effects on 8-OH-DPAT-induced behaviours in the maze, WAY 100635 (0.003 1.0 mg/kg SC) failed to reverse any of the effects induced by buspirone. Animals treated with high doses of WAY 100635 (0.3 1.0 mg/kg SC) alone did not significantly differ from vehicle-treated animals on any of the measures recorded during elevated plus-maze trials. These data suggest that the anxiolytic-like effects of 8-OH-DPAT, but not the anxiogenic-like effects of buspirone, on the elevated plus-maze are mediated via 5-HT(1A) receptors in the CNS.

Buspirone-treated patients averaged a 12.4-point reduction from their baseline total HAM-A score of 24.9, while their counterparts on placebo averaged a 9.5-point reduction from their mean baseline total HAM-A score of 25.6. This 2.9-point difference in HAM-A reductions between treatment groups was significantly different (p < .03). Buspirone patients decreased their HAM-D scores by an average 5.7 points from their mean baseline total HAM-D score of 15.8, while placebo patients decreased their HAM-D scores by an average 3.5 points from their mean baseline score of 16.3 (p < .05). Overall, the incidence of adverse events was similar for both treatment groups, but buspirone-treated patients reported significantly more nausea, dizziness, somnolence, and sweating than placebo patients.

A simple high-performance liquid chromatographic method with ultraviolet absorbance detection has been developed to determine the concentration of N-3-(2,2,5,5-tetramethyl-3-pirrolin-3-carboxamidopropylphthalim ide hydrochloride; A-2545), a new antiarrhythmic agent from human plasma. Separation of the investigated compound and internal standard was achieved on a Nucleosil 7 C18 column with a 0.01-M potassium dihydrogenphosphate buffer (pH 2.5)-methanol (60:40, v/v) mobile phase. The detection was performed at 220 nm. During the determinations, buspirone served as the internal standard. The compounds were isolated from plasma on a Bakerbond C18 solid-phase extraction cartridge and the mean absolute recovery was 92.9%. The limit of quantitation was found to be 10 ng/ml. The bioanalytical method was validated with respect to linearity, within- and between-day accuracy and precision, system suitability and stability. All validated parameters were found to be within the internationally required limits. The developed analytical method for A-2545 was found to be suitable for application in pharmacokinetic studies and for human drug monitoring.

The present data indicate that R-(+)-8-OHDPAT can increase motor activity in monoamine-depleted rats through postsynaptic 5-HT(1A) receptors and not necessarily through 5-HT(1A) autoreceptor-mediated alterations in 5-HT synthesis and release. A potential mechanism of 5-HT(1A)-mediated modulation of non-monoaminergic motor circuits in the brain is discussed. Taken together, the results suggest that 5-HT(1A) agonists would provide a novel approach to the amelioration of antipsychotic-induced side effects and the symptomatic treatment of Parkinson's disease.
