【报告内容摘要】:

 Yueju pill is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which consists of five herbs,formulated to treat depression-related syndromes at 800 years ago. Conventional antidepressants have a major disadvantage in delayed onset for depression treatment. Recently, we found that Yueju promotes fast-onset antidepressant-like efficacy in clinical and preclinical studies. A single dose of Yueju rapidly attenuates the depression-like symptoms in various animal models and the antidepressant effects could last even longer than ketamine, the prototype fast- acting antidepressant with adverse behavioral and neurotoxic potential. We also revealed the critical neuromolecular mechanisms involving improved neural plasticity by Yueju. Moreover, Yueju targeted more therapeutic sites, and the activation of PKA-CREB-BDNF signaling pathway or not underlies the strain- dependent differences in the lasting antidepressant effects. Yueju was also effective in a novel model of treatment-resistant postpartum depression. Importantly, a clinical pilot study supported its fast-onset antidepressant efficacy.
