Triple Reuptake Inhibitors (“Broad Spectrum” Antidepressants)
Abstract:The majority of antidepressants in current use inhibit the uptake of serotonin and/or norepinephrine. Drugs inhibiting the uptake of serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine (triple reuptake inhibitors) may offer therapeutic advantages compared to single and/or dual reuptake inhibitors. This review provides a rationale for developing this class of compound and describes the results of preclinical and clinical studies with a family of triple reuptake inhibitors.

More about this publication?
- CNS & Neurological Disorders - Drug Targets aims to cover all the latest and outstanding developments on the medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, molecular biology, genomics and biochemistry of contemporary molecular targets involved in neurological and central nervous system (CNS) disorders e.g. disease specific proteins, receptors, enzymes, genes. Each issue of the journal will contain a series of timely in-depth reviews written by leaders in the field covering a range of current topics on drug targets involved in neurological and CNS disorders. As the discovery, identification, characterization and validation of novel human drug targets for neurological and CNS drug discovery continues to grow; this journal will be essential reading for all pharmaceutical scientists involved in drug discovery and development.
