Description Prucalopride (R-93877) is a selective, high affinity 5-HT receptor agonist for 5-HT4A and 5-HT4B receptor with Ki of 2.5 nM and 8 nM, respectively, exhibits >290-fold selectivity against other 5-HT receptor subtypes.

In vitro

Prucalopride induces contractions in a concentration-dependent manner with pEC50 of 7.5. Prucalopride (1 mM) significantly amplifies the rebound contraction of the guinea-pig proximal colon after electrical field stimulation. Prucalopride induces relaxation of the rat oesophagus preparation of rat oesophagus tunica muscularis mucosae with pEC50 of 7.8, yielding a monophasic concentration–response curve. [1]

In vivo Complete bowel movements per week is 30.9% of those receiving 2 mg of Prucalopride and 28.4% of those receiving 4 mg of Prucalopride, as compared with 12.0% in the placebo group. 47.3% of patients receiving 2 mg of Prucalopride and 46.6% of those receiving 4 mg of Prucalopride has an increase in the number of spontaneous, complete bowel movements of one or more per week, on average, as compared with 25.8% in the placebo group. Prucalopride (2 mg or 4 mg) significantly improves all other secondary efficacy end points, including patients' satisfaction with their bowel function and treatment and their perception of the severity of their constipation symptoms. [2] Prucalopride (4 mg daily) accelerates overall gastric emptying and small bowel transit in patients with constipation without a rectal evacuation disorder. Prucalopride (4 mg daily) tends to accelerate overall colonic transit with significantly faster overall colonic transit and ascending colon emptying. [3] Higher proportions of patients on prucalopride 2 mg (19.5%), 4 mg (23.6%) has three or more spontaneous complete bowel movements(SCBM)/week compared with placebo (9.6%). Prucalopride also significantly improves secondary efficacy and quality of life endpoints, including the proportion of patients with an increase of one or more SCBM/week, evacuation completeness, perceived disease severity and treatment effectiveness and quality of life. [4] Prucalopride alters colonic contractile motility patterns in a dose-dependent fashion by stimulating high-amplitude clustered contractions in the proximal colon and by inhibiting contractile activity in the distal colon of fasted dogs. Prucalopride also causes a dose-dependent decrease in the time to the first giant migrating contraction (GMC); at higher doses of prucalopride, the first GMC generally occurres within the first half-hour after treatment.

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
