Human experience of cetiedil, a new vasodilator with anticholinergic properties

European Journal of Clinical Pharmacology
A M SoeterboekH Wesseling


Cetiedil, a new vasodilating drug with anticholinergic properties, was shown to be metabolised very rapidly in man after intravenous and oral administration of the 14C-compound. Higher concentrations of labelled compound after oral than after intravenous administration at the same sampling time, and proportional differences in urinary excretion, suggest that metabolic handling of the drug differs depending on the route of administration. Experiments in which inhibition of saliva secretion was measured indicated that (an) active metabolite(s) probably was (were) responsible for the action of the drug. As an anticholinergic drug, cetiedil is at least 400 times weaker than atropine.

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.

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.

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.
