GABA A receptor agonist Understanding

GABA A receptor agonist: Overview
Type-A ?-aminobutyric acid receptors (GABAARs) are the principal mediators of rapid inhibitory synaptic transmission in the human brain. A decline in GABAAR signalling triggers hyperactive neurological disorders such as insomnia, anxiety and epilepsy. GABAARs are the targets of a wide range of drugs including benzodiazepines, used in the treatment of epilepsy, insomnia, anxiety and panic disorder, and the intravenous general anaesthetics propofol and etomidate. GABAARs also mediate alcohol inebriation and are targets for endogenous modulators such as neurosteroids.

Report Highlights
• The companies and academics are working to assess challenges and seek opportunities that could influence GABA A receptor agonist R&D. The therapies under development are focused on novel approaches for GABA A receptor agonist.

GABA A receptor agonist Emerging Drugs Chapters

It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

GABA A receptor agonist Emerging Drugs
• Ganaxolone: Marinus Pharmaceuticals
Ganaxolone is a GABAA receptor modulator that acts by regulating brain activity. This process can include inhibiting the abnormal electrical discharges that cause seizures and status epilepticus or restoring balance in disrupted neuronal activity in other neurologic and psychiatric disorders. GABA is the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. Ganaxolone binds to one of the receptor subtypes, the GABAA receptor. When this receptor is activated, it increases the movement of chloride ions through a pore on the cell surface. This action changes the positive and negative charges inside and outside the cell, which inhibits the firing of the neuron. Ganaxolone is an analogue of the naturally occurring neurosteroid, allopregnanolone. Neurosteroids do not possess the metabolic effects of other steroids; rather, they regulate the balance of excitatory and inhibitory brain activity. Ganaxolone has been designed with an added methyl group that prevents back-conversion to an active steroid intended to better maintain its specific neuromodulatory activity.
• Padsevonil: UCB Biopharma
Padsevonil is a dual-acting antiepileptic drug that has a mechanism of action designed specifically to interact with pre- and post-synaptic targets. Presynaptically, it binds with high affinity to the three isoforms of synaptic vesicle protein 2: SV2A, SV2B and SV2C. Postsynaptically, it binds with moderate affinity to the benzodiazepine recognition site on the GABAA receptor, where it acts as a partial agonist. Previous results of a Phase II proof-of-concept study demonstrated that treatment with padsevonil may be associated with a clinically meaningful reduction in focal seizure frequency and suggested an acceptable tolerability/safety profile. It is currently in Phase II/III stage of development (NCT03370120).
