Description: Vortioxetine, also known as Lu AA21004, is an atypical antidepressant, and was approved in 2013 by the U.S. FDA for the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD) in adults. Vortioxetine is a so-called "serotonin modulator and stimulator." It has been shown to possess the following pharmacological actions: Serotonin transporter (SERT) blocker (i.e. serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SRI)) — Ki (binding affinity) = 1.6 nM, IC50 = 5.4 nM; Norepinephrine transporter (NET) blocker — Ki = 113 nM; 5-HT1A receptor high-efficacy partial agonist/near-full agonist — Ki = 15 nM, IA = 80%; 5-HT1B receptor partial agonist — Ki = 33 nM; 5-HT1D receptor antagonist — Ki = 54 nM; 5-HT3A receptor antagonist — Ki = 3.7 nM; 5-HT7 receptor antagonist — Ki = 19 nM.
