PT-141 was originally developed in the United States for the delivery of nasal spray before it was discontinued due to concerns about potential side effects. It activates the melancortin 1 receptors.
This is included in a new class of man-made proteins that are agonists of the melanocortin. The peptidic compound is processed under the new drug development standards called palatin technology. The molecular formula is C50H68N14O10, and the mass is 1025.2.
PT-141 was synthesized recently from melanotan-peptide, and has been participating in studies with animals in various countries. The largest studies, that were both double-blind and randomized, took place in 2004 and 2007. These studies were purposed for safety evaluation and to find pharmacokinetic features and pharamacodynamics for males and females. A second phase of trials was finished in 2012 with the results expected to be published soon. The main feature noted in PT-141 is the potential to positively influence sexual dysfunction, though not yet intended or safe for human use. The drug does not affect the vascular system, unlike other hormones, and works instead by stimulation of the melanocortin receptors.
