    WARNING: This product is for research use only, not for human or veterinary use.

MedKoo CAT#: 510304

CAS#: 170151-24-3 (HCl)

Description: Nepicastat, also known as SYN117 and RS-25560-197, is an inhibitor of dopamine beta-hydroxylase, an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of dopamine to norepinephrine. It has been studied as a possible treatment for congestive heart failure, and appears to be well tolerated. As of 2012, clinical trials to assess nepicastat as a treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and cocaine dependence have been completed. In Phase 2 study treatment with nepicastat was not effective in relieving PTSD-associated symptoms when compared to placebo.
