Sigma-1 receptor agonists Understanding

Sigma-1 receptor agonists: Overview
Sigma-1 receptor (S1R) is a multi-functional, ligand-operated protein situated in endoplasmic reticulum (ER) membranes and changes in its function and/or expression have been associated with various neurological disorders including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/frontotemporal dementia, Alzheimer’s (AD) and Huntington’s diseases (HD). Sigma-1 receptor is a 223 amino acid-long transmembrane protein residing in the ER membrane. S1R preferentially localizes to the specific microdomains of the ER called mitochondrial-associated membranes (MAM), where it can regulate InsP3R-dependent calcium flux from the ER to mitochondria, lipid dynamics, MAM stability, and the ER stress response. S1R agonists are broadly neuroprotective and this is achieved through a diversity of S1R-mediated signaling functions that are generally pro-survival and anti-apoptotic.

Report Highlights

Sigma-1 receptor agonists Emerging Drugs Chapters
This segment of the Sigma-1 receptor agonists report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase III, II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Sigma-1 receptor agonists Emerging Drugs
• Fenfluramine: Zogenix
Fenfluramine is a phenethylamine that is structurally similar to serotonin. Due to its ability to increase extracellular serotonin levels, modulate serotonergic and other neurologic receptors, and control neurotransmission, it is effective in treating pharmacoresistant seizures. Fenfluramine was granted initial FDA approval in 1973 prior to its withdrawal; it was granted a new FDA approval on June 25, 2020, for treatment of Dravet syndrome patients through the restricted FINTEPLA REMS program. It is currently sold under the name FINTEPLA® by Zogenix INC. Currently, it is in preregistration stage of development to treat Lennox-Gastaut syndrome.

• Pridopidine: Prilenia Therapeutics
Pridopidine is currently being assessed in the ongoing phase 3 global clinical trial PROOF-HD (PRidopidine Outcome On Function in Huntington’s Disease). The successful outcome of PROOF-HD may lead to its approval as a treatment for Huntington’s Disease. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effect of pridopidine on functional capacity, as well as on motor and behavioral features over 65 weeks. In prior clinical trials in HD patients, pridopidine demonstrated a beneficial effect in maintaining functional capacity after 1 year.
