(PRWEB) January 5, 2006 -- psychCME and CME Outfitters are pleased to announce an upcoming live and interactive psychCME TV activity titled "Dosing and Receptors: Lessons Learned from CATIE."

 “  Dosing and Receptors: Lessons Learned from CATIE.  
Offered as a live satellite broadcast, webcast, and telephone audioconference premiering Wednesday, January 25, 2006, from 12:00 p.m.–1:00 p.m. ET, the activity will focus on providing evidence-based educational information and clinical context regarding the efficacy of medications used to treat schizophrenia in the CATIE trial. The recorded satellite broadcast will re-air from 3:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m. ET. This CE activity will be available as an archived webcast, podcast, and telephone audioconference shortly after the live broadcast, and available as a videotape and multimedia CD-ROM in February 2006.

Participation in this activity is free, as is obtaining a CE certificate; however, registration is required. Three forms of registration are accepted:
Online: Visit the activity details page at

Statement of Need:
In the past 10 years, five new atypical antipsychotic medications have been FDA-approved as a treatment for schizophrenia. They are collectively placed in the class of atypical, or second-generation, antipsychotics because they all share some advantages over older, first-generation antipsychotics. The distinguishing feature of second-generation antipsychotics is their lower propensity for causing extrapyramidal side effects. They also appear to have a broader spectrum of efficacy in reducing both positive symptoms (hallucinations and delusions) and negative symptoms (amotivation, emotional and social withdrawal), cognitive impairment, mood problems, and perhaps even persistent aggressive behavior. This broader efficacy may be due to differences in the agents’ receptor activity profile. The Clinical Antipsychotic Trials of Intervention Effectiveness (CATIE) trial is the most comprehensive independent trial comparing existing treatments for schizophrenia conducted thus far; however, information available from CATIE on dosing and two newer atypical antipsychotics, ziprasidone and aripiprazole, is limited. In this evidence-based psychCME TV activity, CATIE researchers will discuss these limitations in the context of receptor pharmacology of the atypical antipsychotics and what it means for the clinicians who are responsible for making informed, real-world decisions on dosing in patients with schizophrenia.
