Cơ Chế Tác Dụng :
ACR-16 is under investigation by NeuroSearch. ACR16 has been successfully investigated in a Phase II multi-centre, randomised and placebo-controlled trial in patients with Huntington’s disease as well as in three Phase Ib studies within Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and schizophrenia respectively. ACR-16 is a dopamine stabilizer. ACR-16 is also being studied in other psychiatric and neurologic diseases.
ACR16 belongs to a novel class of drugs, characterised as dopaminergic stabilisers, CNS active compounds that can both enhance and counteract dopaminergic effects in the brain depending on the initial level of dopaminergic activity. ARC16 works to "smooth" the many functions of this neurotransmitter chemical in striatum and other areas of the brain. Thus they have the ability to stabilize behavioural and motor disturbances caused by neurological and psychiatric disorders. They do this in pathological states without compromising normal thought processes or motor functions.
