Product Details:

  • Product Name: Vigabatrin
  • CAS #: 60643-86-9
  • Mode of Action:

    It is believed that vigabatrin increases brain concentrations of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the CNS, by irreversibly inhibiting enzymes that catabolize GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid transaminase GABA-T) or block the reuptake of GABA into glia and nerve endings. Vigabatrin may also work by suppressing repetitive neuronal firing through inhibition of voltage-sensitive sodium channels.

  • Pharmacodynamics:

    Vigabatrin, is an anticonvulsant chemically unrelated to other anticonvulsants. Vigabatrin inhibits the catabolism of GABA. It is an analog of GABA, but it is not a receptor agonist. Vigabatrin irreversibly inhibits the enzyme GABA transaminase.

  • Metabolism:

    Almost no metabolic transformation. Does not induce the hepatic cytochrome P450 system.
