Pharmacodynamics

Vapreotide is a somatostatin analog with a higher metabolic stability than the parent hormone. Vapreotide reduces splanchnic blood flow; inhibits growth hormone release, and inhibits the release of peptides and vasoactive compounds from neuroendocrine tumors.

Mechanism of action

The exact mechanism of action is unknown, although one study has provided in vitro and in vivo evidence for a tachykinin NK1 receptor antagonist effect in the analgesic effects of vapreotide (PMID: 7556407).
