Background

Velusetrag has been used in trials studying the treatment of Gastroparesis and Alzheimer's Disease. It is a highly selective serotonin receptor agonist effective in patients with chronic constipation. It is being developed by Theravance. Velusetrag was discovered by Theravance through the application of its multivalent drug design in a research program dedicated to finding new treatments for GI motility disorders.

Pharmacodynamics

Studies demonstrating the in vivo preclinical profile of Velusetrag showed that the compound has potent 5-HT4 receptor agonist activity by several routes of administration, including oral, providing robust prokinetic activity in the digestive tract of three different animal species, consistent with its highly potent and selective 5-HT4 receptor agonist in vitro profile.

Mechanism of action

Velusetrag is a potent, highly selective agonist with high intrinsic activity at the 5-HT4 receptor. Relative to other 5-HT receptor types, Velusetrag is > 500-fold selective for binding to the human 5-HT4 receptor. Theravance anticipates that the high degree of selectivity of Velusetrag provides the potential for it to be a better and safer medicine for the treatment of patients with severe constipation and possibly constipation predominant irritable bowel syndrome.
