  3. CNS Therapeutic Xchange Europe 2022, Zurich - 24th November

    Transpharmation's Scientific Lead for EEG, Sleep and Epilepsy, Sandor Kantor PhD, will be making a spotlight presentation on the 24th of November at 13.20-13.50. His presentation is titled 'The effect of CNS-acting drugs on rodent mismatch negativity is modulated by vigilance states' and will expand on the following aspects: Mismatch negativity (MMN) is a component of event-related potentials that is diminished in many neuropsychiatric disorders including schizophrenia; Central nervous system (CNS)-acting drugs often alter vigilance states, and it is not well understood how the drug-induced changes in sleep-wake behaviour affect MMN generation; An overview of the recent rodent MMN research with a special focus on vigilance state specific changes and discuss the methodological aspects and future implications of the latest findings.

  7. Recent collaborative work published by Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience

    Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience have recently published Transpharmation's collaborative research with Cindy Périer, Amy Fisher and Mikhail Kalinichev, exploring the efficacy of BoNT/A for inflammatory Pain in Mice.  For over three decades, BoNT/A (botulinum neurotoxin Type A) has been used to treat muscle hyperactivity. Following studies in animals demonstrating inhibition of pain transmitters at peripheral and central levels, BoNTs have also been explored in a growing range of human pain conditions as potential analgesic agents. You can read it here: Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience. For further information about this study or to enquire about booking in your work with us please contact us.
