Renzapride is a gastroprokinetic agent and antiemetic which acts as a full 5-HT4 full agonist and 5-HT3 antagonist.[1][2] It also functions as a 5-HT2B antagonist and has some affinity for the 5-HT2A and 5-HT2C receptors, though it is unlikely that these properties contribute to its therapeutic effects.[1]

Renzapride was being developed by Alizyme plc of the United Kingdom.

Clinical trials

Renzapride was being investigated for the treatment of constipation-predominant irritable bowel syndrome (IBS-C). It is also potentially effective for irritable bowel syndrome with alternating stool pattern (IBS-A). It is being developed by Alizyme plc of the United Kingdom.

As of 23 April 2008, Alizyme ceased all development of renzapride, after a Phase III trial in the U.S. did not show enough efficacy over placebo to justify further development.[3]
