Aripiprazole (Otsuka Pharmaceutical Company, Ltd [OPC]- Aripiprazole exhibits high affinity for dopamine D and D , 14597) is a novel dopamine-serotonin system stabilizer serotonin 5-HT and 5-HT receptors, moderate affinity for discovered by OPC. The favorable side-effect profile of oral dopamine D , serotonin 5-HT and 5-HT , alpha1-adrenergic aripiprazole, including its low incidence of extrapyramidal and histamine H1 receptors (Ki values of 44 nM, 15 nM, 39 symptoms (EPS), low risk of prolactin elevation, decreased nM, 57 nM, and 61 nM, respectively), and moderate affinity adrenergic and anticholinergic side effects, and minimal for the serotonin reuptake site (Ki = 98 nM). Aripiprazole has weight gain, makes it an excellent candidate for a long- no appreciable affinity for cholinergic muscarinic receptors acting depot formulation. Aripiprazole IM depot formulation (IC50 > 1000 nM). Aripiprazole functions as a partial agonist is also being studied in patients with schizophrenia.
at the dopamine D and the serotonin 5-HT receptors, and as an antagonist at serotonin 5-HT receptor.
Mechanism of ActionThe mechanism of action of aripiprazole differs from that of currently marketed typical and atypical antipsychotics. Aripiprazole IM depot (400 mg/vial) is a sterile, non-pyrogenic, It has been proposed that aripiprazole’s effectiveness in single-dose, lyophilized cake, which when reconstituted with psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia and Bipolar sterile water for injection, forms an injectable suspension. I Disorder, is mediated through a combination of partial agonism / antagonism at dopamine D and serotonin 5-HT receptors. Aripiprazole has the properties of an References:
