The fact that only the aversive properties of co- cAMP system is a neural mechanism of drug tolerance discount naproxen 500 mg line arthritis medication for labradors. In- caine are altered significantly by nor-Binaltorphimine (nor- creased PKA activity leads to increased CREB phosphoryla- BNI) suggests that microinjections of HSV-CREB into the tion, which activates CREB-mediated gene transcription NAc enhance the aversive aspects of cocaine via increased and could be an important step in producing long-lasting stimulation of opioid receptors by dynorphin. To determine the functional role of These results suggest that drug-induced increases in CREB and its transcriptional consequences in the NAc, its CREB activity (62) is a homeostatic change that opposes expression in this region was increased directly by microin- drug reward. Mimicking increases in CREB activity by in- jecting HSV-CREB (57). In other rats, a dominant negative creasing levels with HSV-CREB or by stimulating PKA- mutant CREB (mCREB) was overexpressed, which is tran- induced phosphorylation (56) decreases the rewarding ef- scriptionally inactive and competes with endogenous CREB fects of cocaine. Moreover, these data implicate opioid for cAMP response element binding sites (CREs) (58). These data also suggest not altered by control treatments, this dose established dra- matic conditioned place preferences in rats given bilateral a sequence of D1 receptor–mediated intracellular events, microinjections of HSV-mCREB (which acts as a CREB culminating with altered gene transcription, through which antagonist) into this region. Augmented release of dynorphin could inhibit in the NAc; rats given HSV-CREB avoided drug-associated local DA release through actions at opioid receptors on environments, suggesting that this dose of cocaine was made terminals of mesolimbic DA neurons that innervate the aversive by gene transfer. Diminished release of dopamine in the NAc may a week (rather than 3 days) after microinjections of the HSV itself be aversive, or it may unmask other actions of cocaine vectors into the NAc, cocaine was devoid of rewarding or that are aversive or that oppose drug reward. This finding confirms that the behavioral these viral vector studies have identified biobehavioral rele- consequences of HSV viral vectors are transient and reversi- vance for alterations in CREB function in the NAc. Fourth, because of the small volume of material that can be delivered stereotactically, it will be necessary to increase both the viral titers and the transduction efficiencies for all the known vectors. Fifth, a high degree of cell specificity of gene transfer must be achieved, by the use of targeted vectors that selec- tively infect particular cell types, cell-specific promoters, and routing via normal neuronal projections in the brain. Fi- nally, nontoxic vectors that do not induce an immune re- sponse must be developed.

Children with ADHD are easily Throughout the life cycle, a key clinical feature observed recognized in clinics, in schools, and in the home. Their in patients with ADHD is comorbidity with conduct, de- inattention leads to daydreaming, distractibility, and diffi- pressive, bipolar, and anxiety disorders (4,5). Although spu- culties in sustaining effort on a single task for a prolonged rious comorbidity can result from referral and screening period. Their impulsivity makes them accident prone, cre- artifacts (5), these artifacts cannot explain the high levels of ates problems with peers, and disrupts classrooms. Their psychiatric comorbidity observed for ADHD (4). Notably, hyperactivity, often manifest as fidgeting and excessive talk- epidemiologic investigators find comorbidity in unselected ing, is poorly tolerated in schools and is frustrating to par- general population samples (6,7), a finding that cannot be ents, who can easily lose them in crowds and cannot get caused by the biases that inhere in clinical samples. In their teenage years, over, as we discuss later, family studies of comorbidity dis- symptoms of hyperactivity and impulsivity diminish, but pute the notion that artifacts cause comorbidity; instead, in most cases the symptoms and impairments of ADHD they assign a causal role to etiologic relationships among persist. The teen with ADHD is at high risk of low self- disorders. The validity of diagnosing ADHD in adults has been a NEUROPSYCHOPHARMACOLOGY source of much controversy (2). Some investigators argue that most cases of ADHD remit by adulthood (3), a view Pharmacotherapy that questions the validity of the diagnosis in adulthood. Any pathophysiologic theory about ADHD must address Others argue that the diagnosis of ADHD in adults is both the large pharmacotherapy literature about the disorder. These investigators point to longitudi- The mainline treatments for ADHD are the stimulant med- nal studies of children with ADHD, studies of clinically ications methylphenidate, pemoline, and dextroampheta- referred adults, family-genetic studies, and psychopharma- mine.
