Biomedical Effects and Toxicity
Biological Activity:
Nootropic that displays cognitive enhancing properties. Proposed to enhance neurotransmission via modulation of ion flux; potentiates Na + influx through AMPA receptors. Facilitates efficiency of cholinergic neurotransmission at muscarinic receptors.
Pharmacological Action:
- Drugs intended to prevent damage to the brain or spinal cord from ischemia, stroke, convulsions, or trauma. Some must be administered before the event, but others may be effective for some time after. They act by a variety of mechanisms, but often directly or indirectly minimize the damage produced by endogenous excitatory amino acids.
- Drugs used to specifically facilitate learning or memory, particularly to prevent the cognitive deficits associated with dementias. These drugs act by a variety of mechanisms. While no potent nootropic drugs have yet been accepted for general use, several are being actively investigated.
Therapeutic Uses:
/Investigators/ report on a 30-year-old patient with advanced cerebellar degeneration due to sickle cell amemia 2. He presented with severe myoclonus, which was resistant to conventional therapy and dramatically improved after administration of 12-18 g/day piracetam. Piracetam may be considered in the treatment of refractory myoclonus in spinocerebellar degenerations. [De Rosa A et al; Mov Disord 21 (1): 116-8 (2006)]
Biomedical Effects and Toxicity:
Piracetam is rapidly and almost completely absorbed. Peak plasma levels are reached within 1.5 hours after administration. The extent of oral bioavailability, assessed from the Area Under Curve (AUC), is close to 100% for capsules, tablets and solution.
Peak levels and AUC are proportional to the dose given. The volume of distribution of piracetam is 0.7 L/kg, and ... Clearance of the compound is dependent on the renal creatinine clearance and would be expected to diminish with renal insufficiency.
Piracetam is excreted in human breast milk.
Piracetam crosses the blood-brain and the placental barrier and diffuses across membranes used in renal dialysis.
Piracetam is excreted almost completely in urine and the fraction of the dose excreted in urine is independent of the dose given.
