Drug action at the 5-HT(1A) receptor in vivo: autoreceptor and postsynaptic receptor occupancy examined with PET and [carbonyl-(11)C]WAY-100635.
Serotonin(1A) (5-HT(1A)) receptors have been implicated in the pathophysiology and treatment of anxiety and depression and are a target for novel drug development. In this qualitative study, positron emission tomography (PET) and [carbonyl-(11)C]WAY-100635 were used to assess 5-HT(1A) autoreceptor and postsynaptic receptor occupancy in man in vivo by five different compounds with nanomolar affinity for this site. Occupancy by pindolol, penbutolol, buspirone, EMD 68843, and S 15535 was compare...Expand abstract
