Novel Treatment Approaches for Substance Use Disorders : Therapeutic Use of Psychedelics and the Role of Psychotherapy, Michael Koslowski et al., 2021

Novel Treatment Approaches for Substance Use Disorders : Therapeutic Use of Psychedelics and the Role of Psychotherapy Michael Koslowski, Matthew W. Johnson, Gerhard Gründer, Felix Betzler Current Addiction Reports, 2021, 1-11. doi : 10.1007/s40429-021-00401-8   Abstract Purpose of Review : The use of psychedelics in a therapeutical setting has been reported for the treatment of various diagnoses in recent years. However, as psychedelic substances are still commonly known for their (illicit) recreational use, it may seem counterintuitive to use psychedelic therapy to treat substance use disorders.

A Phase 2, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial to Investigate Potential Drug-Drug Interactions Between Cannabidiol and Clobazam, Kevan E. Van Landingham et al., 2020

A Phase 2, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial to Investigate Potential Drug-Drug Interactions Between Cannabidiol and Clobazam Kevan E. Van Landingham, MD, PhD1, Julie Crockett, PhD2, Lesley Taylor, PhD2*, and Gilmour Morrison, HND2 The Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, 2020, 0, (0), 1–10 Doi : 10.1002/jcph.1634   Abstract We investigated the effects of cannabidiol (CBD; 21-day maintenance dose) on the pharmacokinetics (PK) of clobazam (CLB) and monitored the safety of CBD (or placebo) plus CLB in 20 patients with uncontrolled epilepsy on stable doses of CLB. Blood samples collected until 24 hours postdose were evaluated by liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry. PK parameters of CLB and major metabolite N-desmethylclobazam (N-CLB), [...]

Transient Stimulation with Psychoplastogens Is Sufficient to Initiate Neuronal Growth, Calvin Ly et al., 2020

Transient Stimulation with Psychoplastogens Is Sufficient to Initiate Neuronal Growth Calvin Ly, Alexandra C. Greb, Maxemiliano V. Vargas, Whitney C. Duim, Ana Cristina G. Grodzki, Pamela J. Lein, and David E. Olson ACS Pharmacology and Translational Science, 2020. doi : 10.1021/acsptsci.0c00065   ABSTRACT Cortical neuron atrophy is a hallmark of depression and includes neurite retraction, dendritic spine loss, and decreased synaptic density. Psychoplastogens, small molecules capable of rapidly promoting cortical neuron growth, have been hypothesized to produce long-lasting positive effects on behavior by rectifying these deleterious structural and functional changes. Here we demonstrate that ketamine and LSD, psychoplastogens from two structurally distinct chemical classes, promote [...]

Low-Dose Nitrous Oxide Shows Benefit for Resistant Depression, Batya Swift Yasgur, Medscape.com, 2021

Low-Dose Nitrous Oxide Shows Benefit for Resistant Depression Batya Swift Yasgur, MA, LSW Medscape.com, 2021 June 17, 2021 A 1-hour treatment with a low concentration of nitrous oxide, commonly known as "laughing gas," appears to relieve symptoms of treatment-resistant major depression (TRMD), with effects lasting as long as several weeks, new research suggests. In a trial with a crossover design, investigators randomly assigned 28 patients with severe TRMD to receive a single 1-hour inhalation of placebo or nitrous oxide once a month over a 3-month period. Participants received an inhalation of placebo; a 25% concentration of nitrous oxide; and a 50% concentration of nitrous oxide. Sessions were [...]
