Active Ingredient History
Fesoterodine (trade name Toviaz) is a prodrug of 5-hydroxymethyl tolterodine, which is also the active metabolite of tolterodine. Fesoterodine and its active metabolites are nonsubtype selective, competitive antagonists of human muscarinic receptors, but 5-hydroxymethyl tolterodine has greater potency than the parent compound. A prodrug approach was necessary for systemic bioavailability of 5-hydroxymethyl tolterodine after oral administration. Fesoterodine was originated by Schwarz Pharma (later a subsidiary of UCB) and is being developed by Pfizer for the treatment of overactive bladder and urinary urge incontinence. The agent is launched in several countries for the treatment of overactive bladder, including the US, Japan, Canada, Europe and Asia. NCATS
