Abstract
The therapeutic efficacy of current antipsychotic or antidepressant agents still present important drawbacks, such as delayed onset of action and a high percentage of non-responders. The present review discusses the usefulness of partial dopamine D2/serotonin 5-HT1A receptors agonists in the treatment of schizophrenia, major depression and bipolar disorder as well as in Parkinsons disease.

Abstract
Partial agonists can behave as modulators since their intrinsic activity or efficacy of a partial agonist depends on the target receptor population and the local concentrations of the natural neurotransmitter. These drugs may restore adequate neurotransmission while inducing less side effects.

Abstract
In schizophrenia, partial DA D2/5-HT1A receptor agonists (like aripiprazole or bifeprunox), by stabilizing DA system via a preferential reduction of phasic DA release, reduce side effects i.e. extrapyramidal symptoms and improve cognition by acting on 5-HT1A receptors. Aripiprazole a promising agent for the treatment of depression since it potentiates the effect of SSRIs in resistant treatment depression. Concerning bipolar disorders, aripiprazole may have only a benefit effect in the treatment of manic episodes.

Abstract
Treatment of Parkinsons disease with partial DA D2/5-HT1A receptor agonists remains still experimental. Several studies suggest that these drugs decrease usually observed side effects (dyskinesia, psychotic-like symptoms) in Parkinsons disease treatment.

INTRODUCTION

Regulation of Brain DA and 5-HT Transmission

DA PARTIAL AGONISTS
A partial agonist induces a reduced signaling response compared to the maximum achievable response by a full agonist. The intrinsic activity or efficacy of a partial agonist depends on the sensitivity and responsiveness of the receptors. A partial agonist can behave as an agonist or antagonist, depending on the target receptor population and the local concentration of the natural neurotransmitter.

INTRODUCTION

Regulation of Brain DA and 5-HT Transmission

5-HT SYSTEM
Located in the brainstem near or on the midline. There is nine 5-HT nuclei in the brainstem. The superior group : the caudal linear nucleus, median raphe nuclei (MRN), dorsal raphe nuclei (DRN), lateral nucleus. The inferior group : the nuclei raphe obscursus, raphe pallidus, raphe magnus. Efferent 5-HT projections to the forebrain originate mainly from the superior group of raphe nuclei.

Currently, aripiprazole is the only partial D2-like receptor agonist used for schizophrenia. Other agents showing in vivo or in vitro partial D2-like receptor activity represent putative antipsychotics, e.g. bifeprunox, sarizotan, 3PPP, ACR16, OSU6162. Interestingly, the N-desmethylclozapine, the major metabolites of clozapine, is also a partial D2-like agonist.

5-HT neurons gradually recover their normal firing rate as a result of 5-HT1A autoreceptor desensitization. This gradual recovery of 5-HT neuronal activity may explain the therapeutic delay of clinical action of these drugs. Preclinical data suggest that postsynaptic 5-HT1A receptors are particularly important for the antidepressant response.

First, the activation of these receptors leads to behavioral changes in several animal models, such as the forced swim test (FST), similar to those observed with conventional antidepressants

Second, there is evidence tha neurogenesis, which is a crucial phenomenon in the antidepressant action, can be mediated via 5-HT receptor activation.

The azapirones (gepirone, buspirone, tandospirone and ipsapirone) which act as partial 5-HT1A eceptor agonist have shown efficacy in the treatment of anxiety and major depression. Buspirone is a commercially agent available but used as a single agent appears to be non-effective. Early clinical trials conducted with an immediate release (IR) formulation of gepirone, buspirone and ipsapirone showed antidepressant efficacy after eight weeks, but has the disadvantages of poor tolerability (dizziness, nausea, insomnia, headache and asthenia and a limited efficacy (short half-life and rapid absorption from the gastrointestinal tract).

While these results from clinical trials support the efficacy and the tolerability of ER formulation of gepirone in major depressive disorder, it should be noted that results are less conclusive concerning other azapirones (buspirone and ipsapirone). In addition, azapirones are rapidly metabolized into 1-(2pyrimidinyl)-piperazine (1-PP) which is an alpha-2 adrenoreceptor antagonist, like mirtazapine an effective antidepressant drug. However, the antidepressantlike effect of 1-PP is not well established

PARTIAL D2-LIKE RECEPTOR FOR PD


Full DA receptor agonists can induce dyskinesia and psychotic-like symptoms including hallucinations (probably due to the overstimulation of extra-striatal DA receptors) or somnolence. It has been suggested that such side-effects could be counteracted by the use of partial D-like receptor agonists. These compounds might stimulate D2 and D3 receptors when the dopaminergic tone is low, while counteracting excessive stimulation of the DA D2 and D3 receptor when the dopaminergic tone is high. It is also possible that partial agonists would modulate dopaminergic transmission in a specific region, resulting in the restoration of dopaminergic transmission which is perturbed in PD patient.

Carta et al. have shown that dyskinesia induced by chronic L-DOPA treatment in rats with 6-OHDAinduced lesions of the nigrostriatal DA pathway is critically dependent on the integrity and function of the serotonergic system

PARTIAL DOPAMINE D2/SEROTONIN 5-HT1A RECEPTOR AGONISTS AND PARKINSONS DISEASE

5-HT1A RECEPTOR FOR PD


Synergistic effect of low doses of 5-HT1A and 5-HT agonists to suppress dyskinesia, without affecting the antiparkinsonian effect of L-DOPA in presence of spared DA terminals, suggests that early use of these drugs could counteract the development of dyskinesia in PD patients. Wang et. al. have shown that unilateral lesion of the rat nigrostriatal pathway induces an increase of neuronal firing of 5-HT neurons associated with desensitized 5-HT autoreceptors.

PARTIAL DOPAMINE D2/SEROTONIN 5-HT1A RECEPTOR AGONISTS AND PARKINSONS DISEASE

5-HT1A RECEPTOR FOR PD

High frequency stimulation of the subthalamus nucleus, a well admit antiparkinsonian therapy, has been shown to reduce 5-HT neuronal firing , further suggesting the involvement of 5-HT system in the pathophysiology of PD.

CONCLUSION
Several studies are in accordance with the marked interest of partial D2/5-HT1A agonists in reducing side effects i.e. extrapyramidal symptoms and cognitive impairments in schizophrenia, various researches are still needed to emphasize their beneficial utility in major depression, bipolar disorders and Parkinsons disease.

CONCLUSION
Treatment with aripiprazole in major depression as monotherapy or as adjuvant with a classical antidepressants seems to improve the antidepressant response whereas, in bipolar disorder, only partial dopamin D2 1A receptors agonists show advantages in the treatment of manic episodes. Differently, if treatment of Parkinsons disease with partial D2 and 5-HT receptors agonists is still at the experimental phase, increasing studies report a decrease of side effects with these drugs. Hence, these relatively recent researches provide an exciting future in the discovery of novel stabilizators agents for the management of the latter diseases.
