We searched the Cochrane Stroke Group Trials Register (April 2015), the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (April 2015), MEDLINE (1946 to April 2015), the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL) (1982 to April 2015), EMBASE (1980 to April 2015), PsycINFO (1806 to April 2015) and Latin American Caribbean Health Sciences Literature (LILACS) (1982 to April 2015). We also searched trials and research registers, screened reference lists, and contacted study authors and pharmaceutical companies (April 2015).

exelon patch reviews

Rivastigmine is a cholinersterase inhibitor approved recently for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease (AD). The objective of this study is to characterize the pharmacokinetics-pharmacodynamics of rivastigmine in patients with AD. Eighteen AD patients received doses ranging from 1 to 6 mg bid for about 11 weeks. Rivastigmine and its active (major) metabolite (ZNS 114-666, also called NAP 226-90), plasma, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) concentrations were determined together with the AChE activity and computerized neuropsychological test battery (CNTB) scores. Nonlinear mixed-effects modeling of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data was conducted using NONMEM. Rivastigmine and its metabolite exhibited dose-disproportional pharmacokinetics. The apparent clearance and volume of distribution (plasma) of rivastigmine were estimated to be 120 L/h and 236 L, respectively. The relative bioavailability at the 6 mg dose was about 140%. The metabolite had a clearance of about 100 L/h and a volume of distribution of 256 L. The kinetics of the parent and metabolite in CSF showed an equilibration half-life of about 0.2 and 0.5 hours, respectively. The metabolite levels in CSF correlated very well with the acetylcholinesterase inhibition, with a ZNS 114-666 concentration of about 5.4 microg/L required for half-maximal inhibition of acetylcholinesterase activity. No statistically significant correlation of the CNTB scores with enzyme inhibition, parent or metabolite concentration (plasma/CSF), or rivastigmine dose could be established. The PK-PD model presented in this study can provide valuable information to optimize the drug development of rivastigmine and other related compounds and also in rationalizing dosing recommendations.

The main adverse events reported with rivastigmine therapy are gastrointestinal in nature. However, the transdermal patch appears to reduce these side effects, allowing more patients to access higher therapeutic doses. Overall, the safety profile of rivastigmine is favorable and the improved tolerability offered by the rivastigmine patch suggests that transdermal delivery may be the best way to deliver this drug in AD and PDD patients.

Inflammation has been recently implicated in pathogenesis of dementia disorders. Effect of anti-dementia (Acetylcholinesterase inhibitor) drugs tacrine, rivastigmine and donepezil were studied on neuroinflammation induced by intraperitoneal administration of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in mice. Interleukin-2 (IL-2) and isoforms of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) were estimated in different brain areas as marker for neuroinflammation and cholinergic activity respectively. LPS significantly increased the level of IL-2 in all the brain areas while enhancement of AChE activity varied in brain areas. It was found that administration of tacrine, rivastigmine and donepezil in mice significantly attenuated the LPS induced increased levels of IL-2 along with the significant reduction of AChE activity predominantly in salt soluble (SS) fraction as compared to the detergent soluble (DS) fraction in a dose dependent manner. In vitro effect of LPS was also studied in different brain areas. LPS significantly increased the AChE activity in SS fractions but the significant increase was not found in DS fractions. The present study indicate that cholinesterase inhibitor anti-dementia drugs are effective against LPS induced neuroinflammation that may be linked to enhanced cholinergic activity.

Many drugs are currently in use for AD (e.g. donepezil, rivastigmine etc.) and several of those in development such as muscarininc and nicotinic agonists, target specifically the cholinergic system; the main mechanism aims to rescue the cholinergic dysfunction, to reduce neurotoxic protein accumulation and improve the cholinergic impairments responsible of the cognitive deficits. Promising approaches aim to either improve drug delivery into the brain or develope new compounds targeting known or new molecular pathways. Nanoparticles and liposomes are also described as new nanotechnology tools that overcome traditional routes of administration, with a particular focus on their employment for compounddelivery that targets the cholinergic system. Ultimately, a new fields of research is emerging as the use of induced pluripotent stem cells, a technology that allows to obtain cells directly from the patients that can be propagated indefinetely and differentiated into the susceptible neuronal subtypes. This may significantly contribute to improve the understanding of AD pathological processes and enhance current AD pharmacology beyond the cholinergic dysfunction.

In animal models of Alzheimer's disease (AD), mechanisms of cortical plasticity such as long-term potentiation (LTP) and long-term depression (LTD) are impaired. In AD patients, LTP-like cortical plasticity is abolished, whereas LTD seems to be preserved. Dopaminergic transmission has been hypothesized as a new player in ruling mechanisms of cortical plasticity in AD. We aimed at investigating whether administration of the dopamine agonist rotigotine (RTG) could modulate cortical plasticity in AD patients, as measured by theta burst stimulation (TBS) protocols of repetitive transcranial stimulation applied over the primary motor cortex. Thirty mild AD patients were tested in three different groups before and after 4 weeks of treatment with RTG, rivastigmine (RVT), or placebo (PLC). Each patient was evaluated for plasticity induction of LTP/LTD-like effects using respectively intermittent TBS (iTBS) or continuous TBS protocols. Short-latency afferent inhibition (SAI) protocol was performed to indirectly assess central cholinergic activity. A group of age-matched healthy controls was recruited for baseline comparisons. Results showed that at baseline, AD patients were characterized by impaired LTP-like cortical plasticity, as assessed by iTBS. These reduced levels of LTP-like cortical plasticity were increased and normalized after RTG administration. No effect was induced by RVT or PLC on LTP. LTD-like cortical plasticity was not modulated in any condition. Cholinergic activity was increased by both RTG and RVT. Our findings reveal that dopamine agonists may restore the altered mechanisms of LTP-like cortical plasticity in AD patients, thus providing novel implications for therapies based on dopaminergic stimulation.

22 trials met the inclusion criteria. Follow-up ranged from six weeks to three years. 12 of 14 studies measuring the cognitive outcome by means of the 70 point Alzheimer's disease assessment scale--cognitive subscale showed differences ranging from 1.5 points to 3.9 points in favour of the respective cholinesterase inhibitors. Benefits were also reported from all 12 trials that used the clinician's interview based impression of change scale with input from caregivers. Methodological assessment of all studies found considerable flaws--for example, multiple testing without correction for multiplicity or exclusion of patients after randomisation.

Cholinergic neuromodulation is pivotal for arousal, attention, and cognitive processes. Loss or dysregulation of cholinergic inputs leads to cognitive impairments like those manifested in Alzheimer's disease. Such dysfunction can be at least partially restored by an increase of acetylcholine (ACh). In animal studies, ACh selectively facilitates long-term excitability changes induced by feed-forward afferent input. Consequently, it has been hypothesized that ACh enhances the signal-to-noise ratio of input processing. However, the neurophysiological foundation for its ability to enhance cognition in humans is not well documented. In this study we explore the effects of rivastigmine, a cholinesterase inhibitor, on global and synapse-specific forms of cortical plasticity induced by transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and paired associative stimulation (PAS) on 10-12 healthy subjects, respectively. Rivastigmine essentially blocked the induction of the global excitability enhancement elicited by anodal tDCS and revealed a tendency to first reduce and then stabilize cathodal tDCS-induced inhibitory aftereffects. However, ACh enhanced the synapse-specific excitability enhancement produced by facilitatory PAS and consolidated the inhibitory PAS-induced excitability diminution. These findings are in line with a cholinergic focusing effect that optimizes the detection of relevant signals during information processing in humans.

Treatment with cholinesterase inhibitors can cause tolerability-related problems in many patients. To facilitate the titration process, rivastigmine, a novel form of the drug (solution), has been elaborated. An objective of the study was to compare efficacy, safety and tolerability of rivastigmine (exelon) used in conventional capsules and/or solution and to assess adherence to this drug in patients with mild and moderate Alzheimer's disease. A prospective uncontrolled multicenter study included 207 patients: 126 (60,8%) received rivastigmine capsules and 81 (39,2%) - a solution and capsules with flexible doses of titration regime. In the latter group, the mean dose of rivastigmine was 8,5+/-1,1 mg daily to the end of titration period that was significantly differed from the daily dose used for capsules 4,8+/-1,9 mg (p<0,01). The treatment resulted in the significant improvement of the state of cognitive functions on the MMSE (from 18,5+/-3,8 to 21,9+/-4,3 scores), reduction of intensity of psychotic disturbances and positive changes in evaluation of satisfaction with the therapy given by caregivers of these patients (p<0,001). Due to statistically significant correlations (r=0,48; p=0,017) between MMSE scores and the final dose of rivastigmine, it is necessary to achieve the maximum tolerable dose level. Six patients receiving capsules were withdrawn from the study whereas all patients receiving the solution and capsules completed the study. The flexible titration regime and using the solution of rivastigmine allow to achieve better tolerability and higher dose of the drug to the end of titration period.

Although no pharmacologic treatments have been proved to alter the pathology of Alzheimer's disease, acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (AChEI) therapy offers symptomatic improvements in or delays in the progression of cognitive, behavioral, and functional deficits. Tacrine, donepezil, rivastigmine, and galantamine are the best studied agents in this class. These drugs have varying pharmacokinetic, safety, and tolerability profiles that can affect patient outcomes. Specifically, certain metabolic parameters (ie, half-life and route of metabolism/elimination) can affect a drug's tolerability and become important when a switch from one agent to another is contemplated. The mechanism of action of galantamine, the most recently approved AChEI. varies from that of the other AChEIs in that it has allosteric modulating activity at nicotinic receptors in addition to its ability to inhibit acetylcholinesterase. Benefits of this dual mode of action on the effects of the disease have been suggested.

The present study was designed to determine the effect of subcutaneous rivastigmine treatment on IL-1β expression and IL-1 type I receptor (IL-1R1) gene expression in the hypothalamic structures (preoptic area [POA], anterior hypothalamus [AHA], and medial basal hypothalamus [MBH]) of ewes after lipopolysaccharide (LPS) treatment. Endotoxin treatment increased (P ≤ 0.01) both IL-1β and IL-1R1 gene expression in the POA, AHA, and MBH compared with the control group, whereas concomitant rivastigmine and LPS injection abolished this stimulatory effect. It was also found that LPS elevated (P ≤ 0.01) IL-1β concentration in the hypothalamus (71.0 ± 2.3 pg/mg) compared with controls (16.1 ± 3.6 pg/mg). The simultaneous injection of LPS and rivastigmine did not increase IL-1β concentration in the hypothalamus (24.6 ± 13.0 pg/mg). This central change in IL-1β synthesis seems to be an effect of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibition by rivastigmine, which decreases (P ≤ 0.01) the activity of this enzyme from 78.5 ± 15.0 μmol · min(-1) · g(-1) of total protein in the control and 68.8 ± 9.8 μmol · min(-1) · g(-1) of total protein in LPS-treated animals to 45.2 ± 5.6 μmol · min(-1) · g(-1) of total protein in the rivastigmine and LPS-treated group. Our study showed that rivastigmine could effectively reverse the stimulatory effect of immune stress induced by LPS injection on IL-1β synthesis through a decrease in AChE activity in the hypothalamic area of sheep. Our results also proved that the cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway could directly modulate the central response to endotoxin.

Despite the worldwide extent of methamphetamine dependence, no medication has been shown to effectively treat afflicted individuals. One relatively unexplored approach is modulation buy exelon online of cholinergic system function. Animal research suggests that enhancement of central cholinergic activity, possibly at nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs), can reduce methamphetamine-related behaviors. Further, preliminary findings indicate that rivastigmine, a cholinesterase inhibitor, may reduce craving for methamphetamine after administration of the drug in human subjects. We therefore performed a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover pilot study of the safety and tolerability of varenicline in eight methamphetamine-dependent research subjects. Varenicline is used clinically to aid smoking cessation, and acts as a partial agonist at α4β2 nAChRs with full agonist properties at α7 nAChRs. Oral varenicline dose was titrated over 1 week to reach 1 mg bid, and then was co-administered with 30 mg methamphetamine, delivered in ten intravenous infusions of 3 mg each. Varenicline was found to be safe in combination with IV methamphetamine, producing no cardiac rhythm disturbances or alterations in vital sign parameters. No adverse neuropsychiatric sequelae were detected either during varenicline titration or following administration of methamphetamine. The results suggest that varenicline warrants further investigation as a potential treatment for methamphetamine dependence.

confidence about the size and statistical significance of the estimates of effect of galantamine, rivastigmine and memantine improved buy exelon online on function and global impact in particular. Cost-effectiveness also changed. For donepezil, galantamine and rivastigmine, the incremental cost per quality-adjusted life year (QALY) in 2004 was above £50,000; in 2010 the same drugs 'dominated' best supportive care (improved clinical outcome at reduced cost). This was primarily because of changes in the modelled costs of introducing the drugs. For memantine, the cost-effectiveness also improved from a range of £37-53,000 per QALY gained to a base-case of £32,000.

710 patients were randomized. Rivastigmine demonstrated superiority over placebo on three measures of cognitive performance (Vascular Dementia Assessment Scale, Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale cognitive subscale, Mini-Mental State Examination; all p< or = 0.05, intent-to-treat population [ITT]), but not other outcomes. Predominant adverse events were nausea and vomiting. Exploratory analyses indicated that older patients (> or =75 years old), assumed more likely to also have Alzheimer's buy exelon online disease (AD) pathology, demonstrated significant cognitive responses to rivastigmine and a safety profile similar to that seen in AD patients. Younger patients, assumed less likely to have concomitant AD pathology, showed no efficacy response and were associated with slight elevations of blood pressure, cerebrovascular accidents and mortality. Rivastigmine-placebo differences in patients with, versus those without, medial temporal atrophy (also suggestive of concomitant AD) showed a numerical difference similar to that seen between the older versus younger patients, but did not attain statistical significance.

Executive functions describe a variety of cognitive processes responsible for structuring behaviors around goals, and developing plans to achieve those goals in relation to the environment. In addition to deficits in basal forebrain cholinergic neuronal input into the frontal cortex buy exelon online , impaired control of executive function has been associated with lesions to the frontal cortex and its basal ganglia-thalamic connections. In addition to executive dysfunction, features that imply fronto-subcortical pathology include profound slowing of cognition, attentional deficits, apathy and changes in mood. Fronto-subcortical systems are vulnerable to white matter change, atrophy, and certain forms of neurotransmitter depletion. The diffuse, and likely non-cholinergic, projections of acetylcholinesterase (AChE)-containing thalamic neurons innervate all cortical areas. Butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE) activity is relatively high in thalamic nuclei that project to frontal cortical structures involved in attention, executive function, and behavior. However, the largest pool of BuChE in the brain is found in the glia, particularly those in deeper cortical and subcortical structures. These findings suggest that BuChE may also be an important therapeutic target in the management of symptoms due to subcortical pathology. Whereas 'pure' Alzheimer's disease (AD) may involve significant subcortical pathology in addition to cortical pathology, AD with cerebrovascular disease, vascular dementia (VaD), Parkinson's disease dementia (PDD) and dementia due to Lewy bodies (DLB) may involve a generally greater degree of subcortical, in addition to cortical, pathology. It may be hypothesized that these dementia types, which are characterized by executive dysfunction, might derive particular benefits from cholinesterase inhibitors such as rivastigmine that inhibit BuChE in addition to AChE.

Sustained treatment with effective doses of cholinesterase inhibitors or memantine is crucial to transfer treatment effects in dementia. Numerous studies, with often small samples sizes, describe low adherence rates. The purpose of current study was to examine the medical adherence of antidementia therapy in Austria. We analyzed the data of 10 Austrian Health Insurance Funds, including treatment-naive dementia patients. Study outcome measures were discontinuation, switching, number of days on therapy, Medication-Possession-Ratio, and compliance. A total of 15,809 patients (mean age: 79.9 y, female: 67.3%) met the study's inclusion criteria. After stratification by index medication there were 40.3% on donepezil (n=6371); 26.6% on rivastigmine (n=4206); 15.3% on galantamine (n=2424); and 17.8% on memantine (n=2808). After 6 and 12 months on therapy, 5376 (34.0%) and 9243 (58.5%) patients stopped the initially prescribed antidementia therapy; after 12 months the highest discontinuation rate was buy exelon online seen for patients taking rivastigmine (67.3%), whereas patients on memantine (45.0%) had the lowest. After 12 months, a total of 1874 (11.9%) patients switched from their index medication to another cholinesterase inhibitor or memantine. A total of 6163 patients (39.0%) were compliant (Medication-Possession-Ratio >80%) during the first 6 months and 5366 patients (33.9%) during 12 months of the study. Our study shows that memantine-treated patients adhere significantly better to treatment. Specifically, after 12 months, 45.0% discontinued medication, 7.9% switched, and 50.8% of patients on therapy were compliant.

Rapidly and slowly progressing patients were identified by rates of cognitive decline [>/=4 points and <4 points, respectively, on the Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale -- cognitive subscale (ADAS-cog)] Topamax Alcohol Cravings during 26 weeks of placebo treatment in four randomized controlled trials (weeks 0--26). This meta-analysis evaluated rates of cognitive decline in both subgroups during subsequent open-label rivastigmine 26-week extension studies (weeks 26--52). A longitudinal mixed effects model compared cognitive decline in rapidly and slowly progressing patients, including correction for possible regression to the mean.

It has been shown that, during several years preceding the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease there is a Neurontin Dosage gradual cognitive decline with a continuum between the pre-dementia stage (still known as the prodromal stage but now included within the general concept of mild cognitive impairment [MCI]) and the other stages of the disease. In MCI, the use of cholinesterase inhibitors (ChEIs) is not associated with any delay in the onset of Alzheimer's disease or dementia. During the dementia stages, the three ChEIs (donepezil, galantamine and rivastigmine) are efficacious for mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease; therefore, monotherapy with a ChEI can be envisaged as initial treatment. Confirmation of the efficacy of ChEIs in the mild dementia stage is essentially based on the results from a single, randomized study carried out specifically among patients at this stage of severity. Memantine can represent an alternative to ChEIs in the moderate stage of Alzheimer's disease. At the severe stage of the disease, memantine and donepezil are currently indicated. Indeed, memantine has been approved by numerous drug regulatory agencies for use in severe stages of the disease, whereas donepezil has only been approved by the US FDA. There is currently insufficient evidence for recommending combination therapy in Alzheimer's disease.

Pharmacologic treatments for Alzheimer's disease include the cholinesterase inhibitors donepezil, galantamine, and rivastigmine. We reviewed their evidence by searching MEDLINE, Embase, The Cochrane Library, and the International Pharmaceutical Abstracts from 1980 through 2007 (July) for placebo-controlled and comparative trials assessing cognition, function, behavior, global change, and safety. Thirty-three articles on 26 studies were included in the review. Meta-analyses of placebo-controlled data support the drugs' modest overall benefits for stabilizing or slowing decline in cognition, function, behavior, and clinical global change. Three open-label trials and one double-blind randomized trial directly compared donepezil with galantamine and rivastigmine. Results are conflicting; two studies suggest no differences in efficacy between compared drugs, while one study found donepezil to be more efficacious than galantamine, and one study found rivastigmine to be more efficacious than donepezil. Adjusted indirect comparison of placebo-controlled data did not find statistically significant differences among drugs with regard to cognition, but found the relative risk of global response to be better with donepezil and rivastigmine compared with galantamine (relative risk = 1.63 and 1.42, respectively). Indirect comparisons also favored donepezil over galantamine with regard to behavior. Across trials, the incidence of adverse events was generally lowest for donepezil and highest for rivastigmine.

We did this randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase 2 trial at the North Bristol NHS Trust Hospital, Bristol, UK, in patients with Parkinson's disease recruited from community and hospital settings in the UK. We included patients who had fallen at least once in the year before enrolment, were able to walk 18 m without an aid, had no previous exposure to an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, and did not have dementia. Our clinical trials unit randomly assigned (1:1) patients to oral rivastigmine or placebo capsules (both taken twice a day) using a computer-generated randomisation sequence and web-based allocation. Rivastigmine was uptitrated from 3 mg per day to the target dose of 12 mg per day over 12 weeks. Both the trial team and patients were masked to treatment allocation. Masking was achieved with matched placebo capsules and a dummy uptitration schedule. The primary endpoint was difference in step time variability between the two groups at 32 weeks, adjusted for baseline age, cognition, step time variability, and number of falls in the previous year. We measured step time variability with a triaxial accelerometer during an 18 m walking task in three conditions: normal walking, simple dual task with phonemic verbal fluency (walking while naming words beginning with a single letter), and complex dual task switching with phonemic verbal fluency (walking while naming words, alternating between two letters of the alphabet). Analysis was by modified intention to treat; we excluded from the primary analysis patients who withdrew, died, or did not attend the 32 week assessment. This trial is registered with ISRCTN, number 19880883.

We designed a pragmatic randomized clinical trial to evaluate the adherence to ChEIs among older adults with AD. Participants include AD patients receiving care within memory care practices in the greater Indianapolis area. Participants will be followed at 6-week intervals up to 18 weeks to measure the primary outcome of ChEI discontinuation and adherence rates and secondary outcomes of behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia. The primary outcome will be assessed through two methods, a telephone interview of an informal caregiver and electronic medical record data captured from each healthcare system through a regional health information exchange. The secondary outcome will be measured by the Healthy Aging Brain Care Monitor and the Neuropsychiatric Inventory. In addition, the trial will conduct an exploratory evaluation of the pharmacogenomic signatures for the efficacy and the adverse effect responses to ChEIs. We hypothesized that patient-specific factors, including pharmacogenomics and pharmacokinetic characteristics, may influence the study outcomes.

The clinical course of AD patients treated with rivastigmine was compared with a prediction of their course derived by a baseline-dependent historical model of disease progression developed from data in untreated AD patients. Rivastigmine efficacy data came from four 6-month, placebo-controlled, randomized, controlled trials (RCTs) and two open-label extension studies. Cognitive performance was assessed by various clinician- and caregiver-rated measures.

The brain of mammals contains two major forms of cholinesterases (ChEs): acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE). The two forms differ genetically, structurally and in their kinetics. Butyrylcholine is not a physiological substrate in mammalian brains which makes the function of BuChE difficult to interpret. In human brains, BuChE is found in neurons and glial cells as well as in neuritic plaques and tangles in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). While AChE activity decreases progressively in the brain of patients with AD, BuChE activity shows some increase. In order to study the function of BuChE, we perfused intracortically the rat brain with a selective BuChE inhibitor. We found that extracellular acetylcholine levels increased 15-fold from 5 nmol/L to 75 nmol/L concentrations, with little cholinergic adverse effect in the animal. Based on these data, we postulated that two pools of ChEs may be present in the brain: one mainly neuronal and AChE dependent; and one mainly glial and BuChE dependent. The two pools show different kinetic properties with regard to regulation of acetylcholine concentration in the brain and can be separated with selective inhibitors. The recent development of highly selective BuChE inhibitors will allow us to test these new agents in patients with AD in order to find out whether or not they represent an advantage for the treatment of patients with AD as compared with selective (donepezil) or relatively non-selective (rivastigmine, galantamine) ChE inhibitors presently in use. The association between a BuChE-K variant and AD has not been confirmed in several studies. In conclusion, additional experimental and clinical work is necessary in order to elucidate the role of BuChE in normal brain function and in the brains of patients with AD. In the future, it may be possible that selective BuChE inhibitors will have a role in treatment of patients with advanced AD.

Rivastigmine is a second-generation cholinesterase inhibitor with selectivity for the CNS, with capacity to inhibit both acetylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase. Rivastigmine is currently approved for the treatment of mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease. In addition to its effects on cognition and activities of daily living, rivastigmine appears to be useful in preventing and controlling behavioral and neuropsychiatric manifestations in Alzheimer's disease and dementia with Lewy bodies. This drug profile could be potentially useful in patients with subcortical vascular dementia who often present these symptoms. Small open-label studies of patients with subcortical vascular dementia showed that rivastigmine improved attention, executive function, apathy and other behavioral deficits. Rivastigmine appears to be a promising agent in vascular dementia but its effects remain to be established in double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials.
