Formoterol is a long-acting β2 agonist (LABA) used in the management of asthma and COPD. It works like other β2 agonists, causing bronchodilation by relaxing the smooth muscle in the airway so as to treat the exacerbation of asthma. The long duration of formoterol action occurs because the formoterol molecules initially diffuse into the plasma membrane of the lung cells, and then are slowly released back outside, where they can come into contact with β2 adrenergic receptors.
We have successfully synthesized standards of the Formoterol. This will be of interest to pharmaceutical companies and analytical labs.
