Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Sertindole is a 5-HT2 serotonin and D2 dopamine receptor antagonist and antipsychotic.

Sertindole readily passes the blood-brain barrier and is metabolized into compounds that show greater affinity for 5-HT2 receptors and less for D2 receptors. It is an effective treatment agent for schizophrenia as it improves cognitive impairment.1 Sertindole also acts as antagonist to human cardiac potassium channel, HERG and produces prolonged QT interval.2

Packaging

10, 50 mg in glass bottle

Application

Sertindole was used to study the role of 5-HT2C receptor in antipsychotic-induced body weight gain in rats.3
