Lorcaserin VS Orlistat
Lorcaserin is a selective 5-HT2C receptor agonist,and in vitro testing of the drug showed reasonable selectivity for 5-HT2C over other related targets. 5-HT2C receptors are located almost exclusively in the brain. The activation of 5-HT2C receptors in the hypothalamus is supposed to activate proopiomelanocortin (POMC) production and consequently promote weight loss through satiety.The safety and effectiveness was tested in the 3 clinical trials which nearly 8000 overweight or obese participants were involved.
