Solabegron (GW-427,353) is a drug which acts as a selective agonist for the β3 adrenergic receptor. It is being developed for the treatment of overactive bladder and irritable bowel syndrome.[1],[2],[3] It has been shown to produce visceral analgesia by releasing somatostatin from adipocytes. [4],[5]
