Active Ingredient History

  • Now
Isoetharine is a beta-2 adrenergic receptor agonist, which was developed by Max Bockmuhl, Gustav Erhart and Leonhard Stein at the Hochst laboratories of I.G. Farbenindustrie in 1934. By binding to beta-2 adrenergic receptors on bronchial cell membranes, isoetharine increases the level of cAMP and thus stimulates the relaxation of smooth-muscle cells, stabilizes mast cells and inhibits histamine release. Isoetharine was approved by FDA for the symptomatic relief of bronchiospasms in patients with chronic bronchitis or emphysema (aerosol and solution for inhalation), however, later on the drug was discontinued.   NCATS
