    Curr Opin Investig Drugs 1:116-21. 2000
    ..In August 1999, this prediction changed, and the expected launch date became 2001, with an 80% probability of reaching the market and sales peaking at US $150 million in 2012 [349228]...

    Eur J Pharmacol 426:193-200. 2001
    ..These results suggest that to some extent, the NO donor molsidomine is involved in memory processing...
  4. ncbi request reprint The non-NMDA receptor antagonist NBQX does not affect rats performance in the object recognition task
    Nikolaos Pitsikas
    Department of Medical Pharmacology, University of Milan, Milan, Italy
    Pharmacol Res 45:43-6. 2002
    ..All rats acquired similarly well the task. In conclusion, these results would support and broaden previous observations on the lack of major involvement of AMPA receptors in the rat working memory mechanisms...

    Nikolaos Pitsikas
    Department of Medical Pharmacology, University of Milan, Via Vanvitelli 32, 20129 Milan, Italy
    Psychopharmacology (Berl) 162:239-45. 2002
    ..Recently, NO involvement in learning and memory processes has been proposed. Compounds that inhibit NO synthase, the key synthesizing enzyme, may block cognition, while NO donors may facilitate it...

    Eur J Pharmacol 452:83-6. 2002
    ..Molsidomine, 4 mg/kg, antagonized the L-NAME-induced performance deficits. These results indicate that NO is involved in post-training memory processes...

    Pharmacol Res 47:311-5. 2003
    ..Molsidomine (2 and 4 mg kg(-1), i.p.) at 4 but not at 2 mg kg(-1), antagonized the L-NAME-induced performance deficits. These results indicate that NO is involved in the acquisition of a recognition memory task...
