Pfizer has developed and launched eletriptan, a 5-HT1B/1D agonist, for the potential treatment of migraine with and without aura. Eletriptan has 6-fold greater affinity for the 5-HT1D receptor than sumatriptan, and a 3-fold greater affinity for the 5-HT1B receptor [249570]. Eletriptan pharmacology has also been evaluated in vitro in comparison with zolmitriptan (AstraZeneca plc) and naratriptan (GlaxoSmithKline plc) [290116].
