Summary of Clinical Use
Approved to be used as a short acting sedative or anaesthetic [1-2]. The marketed formulation contains the disodium salt (PubChem CID 3038497).
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
As this prodrug is converted to propofol, the MMOA will be positive allosteric modulation of GABAA channels [5-6], and potentially involves blocking of sodium channels [3-4]. Propofol binding sites have been identified on recombinantly expressed human GABAA channels [7].
