Opioid Receptor Antagonists for Acute Treatment of Paraphilic Arousal States

06.09.2012
The treatment of paraphilias and related disorders has been challenging for patients and clinicians for a long time. The main problems of recent drug therapies are their occurring side effects, mostly the affection not only of the sexual but of the overall behaviour of the patient. Therefore compliance and willingness to use such treatment options is really poor.</p>The present invention provides a method for acute treatment of paraphilic sexual arousal states in patients suffering from paraphilia by administering an opioid receptor antagonist.</p>

<p>In contrast to common therapies the patient is treated with said medicament, only if he is in acute need in order to acutely diminish a paraphilic sexual arousal state.  According to the present invention the opioid receptor antagonist is preferably be administered nasally. Within 5 to 10 minutes after treatment, the patient is able to control his behavior, thus avoiding any actions that may harm the patient or his environment. <br> <br> Because the patient is only exposed to the drug if he is in acute need for it, development of side effects from known therapies is reduced. This leads to an increased compliance and willingness to accept such treatment.</p> <strong>Benefits</strong>

<ul> <li>Administration in acute stadium only yield in increased compliance and willingness of the patients to accept such treatments</li> <li>Reduced side effects compared to standard therapies</li> <li>Use of the medicament only in acute need to acutely diminish a paraphilic sexual arousal state</li> <li>Ongoing clinical study</li> </ul> <strong>IP Rights</strong><br> An European Patent Application was filed in June 2009.<br> <br> <strong>Origin</strong><br> The novel therapeutic approach was developed by scientists from the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin.</p> <p> </p>

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
