This may be an oversimplification...but couldn't a company modify Moclobemide a bit and then get a new patent? Look at all the similar SSRI's out there. My pdoc feels that Selegiline (both the patch and the "doggie Alzheimer's" version) will renew interest in MAOI's among U.S. pharmaceutical companies.
