Dr. Donald Sikazwe was awarded a US patent (#7,700,587) for his 2004 dissertation related research on the antipsychotic drug Haloperidol. Haloperidol is a cheap, older (introduced in 1950’s), and very effective drug for alleviating positive or overt symptoms (hallucinations, delusions, etc.) of schizophrenia. However, chronic usage of this drug leads to tardive dyskinesias (permanent extrapyramidal movements) in patients due to its biotransformation to neurotoxic quaternary pyridinium species which accumulate in patient brains. Dr. Sikazwe’s patented analogs of haloperidol were therefore designed to avoid the above biotransformation, so that the drugs are eliminated from the body harmlessly.
