Overview

ACP-104, or N-desmethylclozapine, is the major metabolite of clozapine, and is being developed by ACADIA as a novel, stand-alone therapy for schizophrenia. It combines an atypical antipsychotic efficacy profile with the added potential benefit of enhanced cognition, thereby addressing one of the major challenges in treating schizophrenia today.

Pharmacology

Indication

Investigated for use/treatment in schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorders.

Pharmacodynamic

ACP-104 is a small molecule drug candidate we are developing as a novel therapy for schizophrenia. It is known that large amounts of ACP-104, or N-desmethylclozapine, are formed in the body after administration of clozapine. That is, clozapine is metabolized to ACP-104. We discovered that ACP-104 h... Read more

Mechanism of action

ACP-104 combines M1 muscarinic agonism, 5-HT2A inverse agonism, and D2 and D3 dopamine partial agonism in a single compound. ACP-104 uniquely stimulates brain cells known as M1 muscarinic receptors that play an important role in cognition. ACP-104 is a partial-agonist that causes weak activation of... Read more
