Drug Names(s): ABP700, ABP-700

Description: ABP-700 is a positive allosteric modulator of the y–aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptor, a ligand-gated ion channel. Its mechanism of action is via potentiation of GABAA receptor activation, which leads to its sedative and anesthetic effects. ABP-700 contains an ester that is designed to undergo rapid hydrolysis in the body by nonspecific tissue esterases that produce an inactive metabolite. This mechanism of deactivation results in a rapid and predictable offset profile
