Flibanserin (Synonyms: BIMT-17; BIMT-17BS)

Cat. No.: HY-A0095 Purity: 99.10%
Handling Instructions

Flibanserin (BIMT-17) is a full agonist of the serotonin 5-HT1A receptor (Ki=1 nM) and an antagonist of 5-HT2A (49 nM). Flibanserin binds to dopamine D4 receptors (4-24 nM), and has negligible affinity for a variety of other neurotransmitter receptors and ion channels. Flibanserin is efficacious in treating hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD).

Description

Flibanserin (BIMT-17) is a full agonist of the serotonin 5-HT1A receptor (Ki=1 nM) and an antagonist of 5-HT2A (49 nM). Flibanserin binds to dopamine D4 receptors (4-24 nM), and has negligible affinity for a variety of other neurotransmitter receptors and ion channels. Flibanserin is efficacious in treating hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD)[1][2].

In Vivo

The multifunctional serotonergic agent Flibanserin is both a serotonin 1A agonist and a serotonin 2A antagonist. Flibanserin theoretically improves sexual functioning by enhancing downstream release of dopamine and norepinephrine while reducing serotonin release in the brain circuits that mediate symptoms of reduced sexual interest and desire. Flibanserin, a new molecular entity for the treatment of hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) in premenopausal women. Flibanserin improves interest in and desire for sex by hypothetically targeting these circuits and causing the release of dopamine and norepinephrine while also reducing the release of serotonin. Flibanserin has demonstrated clinical efficacy in premenopausal women who have reduced interest in and desire for sex and has 2 principal pharmacologic actions in microcircuits: it is a full agonist at postsynaptic serotonin 5HT1A receptors and an antagonist at postsynaptic 5HT2A receptors.
