High impact information on TIOSPIRONE

  • Higher ratios of potency in occupying 5-HT2 versus D2 receptors were found for clozapine, RMI-81512, and tiospirone compared to haloperiodol and pimozide [1].
  • Clozapine and several related atypical antipsychotic agents (rilapine, olanzepine, tiospirone, fluperlapine, clorotepine and zotepine) had high affinities for the newly discovered 5-HT6 receptor (Kis < 20 nM) [2].
  • The 5-HT7 receptor bound clozapine, rilapine, fluperlapine, clorotepine, zotepine and risperidone but not tiospirone and olanzepine, with affinities less than 15 nM [2].
  • Consistent with the hypothesis that the prefrontal cortex may be a target for some antipsychotic actions, FLI was elevated in this structure by clozapine, ICI 204,636, fluperlapine, RMI-81,582, remoxipride, molindone, melperone and tiospirone [3].
