Summary of Clinical Use
Iloprost is used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension, scleroderma, Raynaud's phenomenon and ischemia.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Iloprost binds with equal affinity to human prostanoid (IP1) and prostaglandin EP1 receptors. Clinically iloprost acts as a vasodilator, hypotensive, antidiuretic, and anti-coagulant. These properties ameliorate disease-associated pathology observed in the small pulmonary arteries of patients with pulmonary hypertension.
