Sorry, no etymologies found.
The wide variety of drugs in development includes opioid receptor ligands, bradykinin antagonists, mPGES-1 inhibitors, glutamate receptor antagonists, substance P and neurokinin receptor antagonists, norepinephrine transporter inhibitors, P2X2 neuron receptor antagonists and nitric oxide-based analgesics.
Homspera, an analog of the endogenous neurokinin Substance P, has been shown to affect a number of immunological and non-immunological cell types via its receptor-binding activity at the neurokinin-1 receptor (NK-1R), and to have hematopoietic stem cell stimulatory activity as well as immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory activity in a number of model systems.
The neurokinin 1 receptor (NK1R), which may be expressed in all human glioblastoma cells, may prove to be an appropriate target for therapies aimed at treating these brain tumors, according to a study led by researchers in the Duke Department of Anesthesiology and the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke.
Very few neurokinin 1 receptor antagonists are in development in the U.S.
