There are many diseases that are poorly treatable. But if the "disease of the body" can still be seen, but with "diseases of the soul" is much more difficult. Drugs for treatment of disorders of the psyche, of course, exist, but often have a lot of contraindications and side effects. But recently, scientists from the Institute of pharmacology of Tomsk has developed a drug for the treatment of schizophrenia and other disorders psihonevrologicheskij plant-based.

About the discovery reported in the press service of innovative organizations of the Tomsk region. The remedy is made from plants of the genus kopeechnik, making it safer than existing synthetic antipsychotic drugs (major to date drugs for the treatment of mental disorders). As reported by researcher of the laboratory of scientific research Institute of pharmacology Yulia Fedorova,

"the Active substance isolated from plants of the genus kopeechnik grown in Siberia. As a well-known antipsychotic drug, our drug acts on receptors for dopamine, but, unlike them, does not cause depression of the nervous system, which leads to apathy, reduced mental activity and sleepiness in patients".

Work on the drug was conducted in 2008. Now the developers plan to begin full-scale clinical drug trial. Scientists expect that it will become a new effective tool in the treatment of schizophrenia and other psihonevrologicheskij States. The main advantage of the drug is the almost complete absence of side effects. But to determine the full effects on the human body still need to conduct a series of tests.
