Major New Review Supports the Broader Potential of CeNeS COMT,Inhibitor Discovery Programme

Parkinson's disease. Academic data continues to suggest that COMT inhibitors may also have therapeutic utility in addressing the poorly treated negative symptoms of schizophrenia.

If this extra indication is established the market size for a novel, centrally acting COMT inhibitor would increase substantially". ENDS

Tolcapone and entacapone, in common with the majority of known potent COMT inhibitors, contain the undesirable 3-nitrocatechol unit that is associated with poor oral absorption, short plasma half-life and extensive metabolism issues.
