Sumatriptan succinate


Biological Activity :

Sumatriptan succinate is a 5-HT1 serotonin receptor agonist. Sumatriptan reduces the vascular inflammation associated with migraine. Sumatriptan displays the highest affinity for 5-HT1D (Ki = 17 nM) and 5-HT1B (Ki = 27 nM) binding sites and is slightly less potent at 5-HT1A binding sites (Ki = 100 nM). Sumatriptan at a clinically relevant dose (100 mg/kg, s.c.) leads to a significant reduction of the mechanical allodynia-like behaviour on both the injured and the contralateral sides (peak-effects 6.3 g and 4.4 g, respectively) in a rat model of trigeminal neuropathic pain. Sumatriptan results in oral bioavailabilities of 37, 58 and 23% in rat, dog and rabbit, respectively. sumatriptan is cleared rapidly by metabolic and renal clearance with a half-life of 1-2 hour.
