A new 5-HT3 receptor ligand, CP2289, was synthesized and pharmacologically tested. Although CP2289 inhibited the Bezold-Jarisch reflex, it contracted the excised ileal muscle of mice, rats and guinea pigs. This response may reflect a partial agonist character of CP2289 in the gut. In vivo antiemetic and gastric emptying tests gave similar results.
