Clobazam: pharmacological and therapeutic profile

British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology
G W Hanks

Abstract

1 Clobazam is a 1,5-benzodiazepine the pharmacological profile of which differs from that of the 1,4 benzodiazepines in that it displays a wide separation of psychosedative or 'tranquillizing' properties from impairment of motor coordination. This is associated with a relative lack of muscle relaxant activity. 2 In man it seems to be an effective anxiolytic agent when given in daily doses of 20-30 mg but produces minimal effects on psychomotor performance at these dose levels. 3 Clobazam has a long elimination half-life of about 18 h; the main metabolite is N-desmethylclobazam. Clobazam seems to share the good safety and tolerability characteristics of the 1,4 benzodiazepines.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
