Brief Summary:
Bupropion has different effects on D2 dopamine receptors according to genotype.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Smoking Drug: Bupropion Phase 4

Detailed Description:

Open, one arm, single sequence, 2-period, study stratified into 2 DRD2 genotype groups For subjects who volunteer to cease smoking, genotypes are investigated. Twelve subjects are enrolled (6 - DRD2 Taq1A1 allele, 6 - DRD2 Taq1A2 homozygotes). Subjects receive baseline raclopride PET (High Specific Activity, Low Specific Activity).

  • Period 1 Subjects receive 150 mg of bupropion SR every day. After 1 week of medication, pharmacokinetic and PET studies are performed.
  • Period 2 Subjects receive 150 mg of bupropion SR twice a day. After 1 week of medication, pharmacokinetic and PET studies are performed.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 12 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
