Transcript

  • 1. 18-methoxycoronaridine dr shabeel pn
  • 2. Introduction <ul><li>Synthetic iboga alkaloid congener </li></ul><ul><li>Developed by team at Albany Medical College </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Primary investigator: Stanley Glick </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Similar anti-addictive effects as ibogaine seen in animal research </li></ul><ul><li>Non-tremerogenic and non-neurotoxic </li></ul><ul><li>May not be a psychedelic </li></ul>
  • 3. Effects <ul><li>No evidence of tremorogenic activity </li></ul><ul><li>Does not decrease heart rate, ibogaine can </li></ul><ul><li>No evidence of neurotoxicity at doses up to 300 mg/kg </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Glick et al hypothesize that ibogaine’s putative neurotoxicity at high doses is due to its overstimulation of the olivio-cerebellar pathway, damaging Purkinje cells </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Attenuates self-administration of cocaine, morphine, alcohol, methamphetamine, and nicotine in rats </li></ul>
  • 4. <ul><li>Attenuates of symptoms of morphine withdrawal (teeth chattering, wet-dog shakes, and diarrhea) </li></ul><ul><li>Does not affect grooming behavior </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ibogaine decreases grooming behaviour (grooming behavior is another sign of morphine withdrawal in rats) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Does decrease burying behavior (another withdrawal symptom) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ibogaine does not decrease burying behavior </li></ul></ul>
  • 5. <ul><li>Least effective on methamphetamine, most effective on nicotine </li></ul><ul><li>Longer lasting reduction of morphine self administration than ibogaine </li></ul><ul><li>Approximately twice as potent in attenuation of oral nicotine self-administration as ibogaine </li></ul><ul><li>Attenuation of morphine and cocaine self- administration lasted at least a day, and up to two weeks after repeated administration </li></ul>
  • 6. <ul><li>Some rats responded to treatment (for morphine and cocaine) after one dose, some after two or doses, and a few did not respond at all </li></ul><ul><li>18-MC pretreatment enhances morphine induced locomotor activation in acute morphine treat rats, but blocks locomotor sensitization in rats having been repeatedly administered morphine </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ibogaine reduces morphine induced locomotion in acute morphine treated rats </li></ul></ul>
  • 7. <ul><li>Does not affect responding for a nondrug reinforcer (water) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ibogaine has been shown to decrease responding for water </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Like ibogaine, attenuates and then increases cocaine and methamphetamine induced locomotion and stereotypy </li></ul><ul><li>Like ibogaine, reduces methamphetamine induced behavioral disinhibition and novelty seeking </li></ul><ul><ul><li>As measured by # of entries into the open arm of a maze </li></ul></ul>
  • 8. Pharmacology <ul><li>Primary mechanism of action thought to be decrease of extracellular dopamine and the DA metabolite dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) in the nucleus accumbens (NAC) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Does not affect level of DA metabolite homovanillic acid (HVA) in the NAC </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Attenuates nicotine, morphine, and cocaine induced dopamine release </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>May affect cocaine induced locomotion via action at some sites downstream of the midbrain dopamine neurons </li></ul></ul>
  • 9. <ul><ul><li>Does not affect basal dopamine,HVA, or DOPAC </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lack of effect on HVA shows that it may exert its dopaminergic effects by interfering with DA release mechanisms, without affecting DA synthesis </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Unlike ibogaine, does not cause an increase in extracellular serotonin in the nucleus accumbens </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This is why it is hypothesized that 18-MC may not be psychedelic </li></ul></ul>
  • 10. <ul><li>Like ibogaine, acts as an antagonist at  3  4 nicotinic receptors </li></ul><ul><li>Similar affinity for kappa opioid receptors as ibogaine </li></ul><ul><li>Significantly lower affinity for delta opioid receptors than ibogaine </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This is presumed to be the reason for the difference in effects on morphine induced locomotion </li></ul></ul>
  • 11. <ul><li>Has much lower affinities than ibogaine for NMDA and sigma-2 receptors, sodium channels, and the 5-HT transporter </li></ul><ul><li>Like ibogaine, is sequestered in fat </li></ul><ul><li>Metabolism catalyzed by CYP2C19 </li></ul><ul><li>Primary metabolite: 18-hydroxycoronaridine (18-HC) </li></ul>
  • 12. Limitations <ul><li>Has only been tested on laboratory animals </li></ul><ul><li>Has only been administered intraperitonally </li></ul><ul><li>Studies have been conducted by a small set of researchers </li></ul><ul><li>May not be psychedelic - this could conceivably be a limitation, as the visualizations caused by ibogaine seem to play a significant role in its therapeutic actions in humans </li></ul>
