MedKoo CAT#: 317137

CAS#: 210421-74-2 (sodium salt)

Description: Sitaxentan, also known as TBC-11251 and IPI 1040, is a medication for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). It was marketed as Thelin. In 2010, Pfizer voluntarily removed sitaxentan from the market due to concerns about liver toxicity. Sitaxentan is a small molecule that blocks the action of endothelin (ET) on the endothelin-A (ETA) receptor selectively (by a factor of 6000 compared with the ETB).
