Adatanserin (WY-50,324, SEB-324) is a mixed 5-HT1A receptor partial agonist and 5-HT2A and 5-HT2C receptor antagonist.[1][2][3] It was under development by Wyeth as an antidepressant but appears to have been abandoned.[3][4] Adantaserin also has neuroprotective effects against ischemia-induced glutamatergic excitotoxicity.[5]
