Abstract

The pharmacological properties of SDZ 216-525, methyl 4-(4-[4-(1,1,3-trioxo-2H-1,2-benzoisothiazol-2-yl)butyl]-1-p iperazinyl)1H- indole-2-carboxylate, a new selective and potent 5-HT1A receptor antagonist, are described in vitro (and comparisons made with those of MDL 73005 and NAN 190, two putative 5-HT1A receptor antagonists) and in vivo. In radioligand binding studies, SDZ 216-525 showed high affinity and selectivity for 5-HT1A sites (pKD = 9.2) as compared to 5-HT1B, 5-HT1C, 5-HT1D, 5-HT2 and 5-HT3 sites (pKD = 6.0, 7.2, 7.5, 5.2 and 5.4, respectively). The affinity of the compound for alpha 1, alpha 2, beta 1 and beta 2 adrenoceptors, and dopamine D2 receptors was at least 50-100 times..
