Opioid Receptor Antagonists for Acute Treatment of Paraphilic Arousal States

06.09.2012
<strong>Background</strong><br>

The treatment of paraphilias and related disorders has been challenging for patients and clinicians for a long time. The main problems of recent drug therapies are their occurring side effects, mostly the affection not only of the sexual but of the overall behavior of the patient. Therefore compliance and willingness to use such treatment options is really poor.</p>

<strong>Technology</strong><br> The present invention provides a method for acute treatment of paraphilic sexual arousal states in patients suffering from paraphilia by administering an opioid receptor antagonist.<br> In contrast to common therapies the patient is treated with said medicament, only if he is in acute need in order to acutely diminish a paraphilic sexual arousal state. According to the present invention the opioid receptor antagonist is preferably be administered nasally. Within 5 to 10 minutes after treatment, the patient is able to control his behavior, thus avoiding any actions that may harm the patient or his environment.<br> Because the patient is only exposed to the drug if he is in acute need for it, development of side effects from known therapies is reduced. This leads to an increased compliance and willingness to accept such treatment.</p> <strong>Benefits</strong> <ul> <li>High medical and social need</li> <li>Easy production process</li> <li>Long time storable under standard conditions</li> <li>Fast onset of action after 2-3 min</li> <li>Harmless composition</li> <li>No severe side effects as with common therapies</li> <li>High patient compliance</li> </ul> <strong>IP Rights</strong><br> EP-Priority (06/2009).<br> PCT Application (06/2010).<br> <br> <strong>Origin</strong><br> The novel therapeutic approach was developed by scientists from the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin.</p> <p> </p>

Im Focus: LaserTAB: Effizientere und präzisere Kontakte dank Roboter-Kollaboration

Auf der diesjährigen productronica in München stellt das Fraunhofer-Institut für Lasertechnik ILT das Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, kurz LaserTAB, vor: Die Aachener Experten zeigen, wie sich dank neuer Optik und Roboter-Unterstützung Batteriezellen und Leistungselektronik effizienter und präziser als bisher lasermikroschweißen lassen.

Auf eine geschickte Kombination von Roboter-Einsatz, Laserscanner mit selbstentwickelter neuer Optik und Prozessüberwachung setzt das Fraunhofer ILT aus Aachen.

Im Focus: LaserTAB: More efficient and precise contacts thanks to human-robot collaboration

At the productronica trade fair in Munich this November, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be presenting Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, LaserTAB for short. The experts from Aachen will be demonstrating how new battery cells and power electronics can be micro-welded more efficiently and precisely than ever before thanks to new optics and robot support.

Fraunhofer ILT from Aachen relies on a clever combination of robotics and a laser scanner with new optics as well as process monitoring, which it has developed...

Im Focus: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Hochpräzise Verschaltung in der Hirnrinde

Es ist noch immer weitgehend unbekannt, wie die komplexen neuronalen Netzwerke im Gehirn aufgebaut sind. Insbesondere in der Hirnrinde der Säugetiere, wo Sehen, Denken und Orientierung berechnet werden, sind die Regeln, nach denen die Nervenzellen miteinander verschaltet sind, nur unzureichend erforscht. Wissenschaftler um Moritz Helmstaedter vom Max-Planck-Institut für Hirnforschung in Frankfurt am Main und Helene Schmidt vom Bernstein-Zentrum der Humboldt-Universität in Berlin haben nun in dem Teil der Großhirnrinde, der für die räumliche Orientierung zuständig ist, ein überraschend präzises Verschaltungsmuster der Nervenzellen entdeckt.

Wie die Forscher in Nature berichten (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005), haben die...

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...
