Background

Psychotic symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease (PD) are relatively common, reducing quality of life and prognosis for individuals with PD.11

Pimavanserin (ACP-103), marketed under the trade name Nuplazid, is a drug developed by Acadia Pharmaceuticals for the treatment of psychosis related to Parkinson's disease. Due to its actions at serotonin receptors and lack of effects on dopamine receptors, pimavanserin treats hallucinations and delusions without causing extrapyramidal symptoms.6 It was initially approved by the FDA in 2016 and is now under review as a potential treatment for dementia related psychosis. As of April 2021, FDA approval has not been granted for this indication, despite previous breakthrough designation.18

Pharmacodynamics

Pimavanserin's unique actions on serotonin receptors improve symptoms of hallucinations and delusions associated with Parkinson's disease.2 In clinical studies, 80.5% of individuals treated with pimavanserin reported improvement in symptoms. Pimavanserin does not worsen motor functioning in patients with Parkinson's disease psychosis.9

Mechanism of action

Parkinson's disease psychosis (PDP) is a imbalance of serotonin and dopamine from disruption of the normal balance between the serotonergic and dopaminergic receptors and neurotransmitters in the brain.10

The mechanism by which pimavanserin treats hallucinations and delusions associated with Parkinson’s disease psychosis is not fully established. It is possible that pimavanserin acts via inverse agonist and antagonist activity at serotonin 5-HT2A receptors with limited effects on serotonin 5-HT2C receptors. Pimavanserin is an inverse agonist and antagonist of serotonin 5-HT2A receptors with high binding affinity, demonstrating low binding affinity to serotonin 5-HT2C receptors. In addition, this drug exhibits low affinity binding to sigma 1 receptors.14 Pimavanserin lacks activity at muscarinic, dopaminergic, adrenergic, and histaminergic receptors, preventing various undesirable effects typically associated with antipsychotics.9

Absorption

The median Tmax of pimavanserin in clinical studies was 6 hours, regardless of the dose. Bioavailability of an oral tablet of pimavanserin and a solution were almost identical. The major active circulating N-desmethylated metabolite, AC-279, has a median Tmax of 6 hours.14

Volume of distribution

Following administration of a single dose of 34 mg, the average apparent volume of distribution was 2173 L in clinical studies.3,14

Protein binding

Pimavanserin is highly protein bound (~95%) in human plasma.3,14

Metabolism

Pimavanserin is mainly metabolized CYP3A4 and CYP3A5 hepatic cytochrome enzymes, and to a lesser extent by CYP2J2, CYP2D6, and other cytochrome and flavin-containing monooxygenase enzymes. CYP3A4 metabolizes pimavanserin to its major active metabolite, AC-279.14

Route of elimination

About 0.55% of a 34 mg oral dose was excreted unchanged in the urine and 1.53% was eliminated in feces within 10 days.3 Less than 1% of the administered dose and its active metabolite AC-279 were recovered in urine during clinical studies.14

Half-life

The average plasma half-lives for pimavanserin and its active metabolite (AC-279) are estimated at 57 hours and 200 hours, respectively.14

Toxicity

LD50 information for pimavanserin is not readily available in the literature. Pre-marketing clinical trials involving pimavanserin in approximately 1200 subjects and patients do not report symptoms of overdose. In healthy subject studies, nausea and vomiting were reported. There are no known antidotes for an overdose with this drug. Cardiovascular monitoring should begin immediately in the case of an overdose and continuous ECG monitoring is recommended. If antiarrhythmic drugs are administered in an overdose of pimavanserin, disopyramide, procainamide, and quinidine should not be used due to their potential for QT-prolonging effects. In the case of an overdose, consider the 57 hour plasma half-life of pimavanserin and the possibility of multiple drug involvement.14

Food Interactions
  • Avoid grapefruit products. Dose adjustment may be necessary if taking grapefruit products or other CYP3A4 inhibitors.
  • Avoid St. John's Wort. This may induce the CYP3A4 metabolism of pimavanserin, which may cause reduced efficacy.
  • Take with or without food.
