Terlipressinis vasopressin receptor agonist. Terlipressin is a synthetic vasopressin analogue with twice the selectivity for vasopressin V1 receptors versus V2 receptors.
Terlipressin acts as both a prodrug for lysine-vasopressin, as well as having pharmacologic activity on its own.
Terlipressin is thought to increase renal blood flow in patients with hepatorenal syndrome by reducing portal hypertension and blood circulation in portal vessels and increasing effective arterial volume and mean arterial pressure (MAP).
