Active Ingredient History

Cyclamic acid (Cyclamate) is banned in the United States but it is used in many other Western countries without safety concerns. Cyclamate interacts with the sweet taste receptor subunit T1R3 transmembrane domain. Initially it was recommended for use in treatment of obese patients and by individuals with diabetes but in August 27, 1970 FDA concluded that there was no substantial evidence of effectiveness of cyclamate compounds at any level for treatment of obese patients and individuals with diabetes and therefore prohibited continued sale of cyclamate containing products with drug labeling. cyclamate is the putative carcinogenic agent. Cyclamate was tested in the Maximal Electroshock Seizure model (mice, ip), showing moderate anticonvulsant activity.   NCATS
