Pregabalin was observed to understand its production of dose-dependent increase in the brain expression of L-GAD.

Pregabalin was observed to understand its production of dose-dependent increase in the brain expression of L-glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD), the enzyme responsible for synthesizing GABA, and hence how it may have some indirect GABAergic effects by increasing GABA levels in the brain.
