Cariprazine specificity profile in the treatment of acute schizophrenia: a meta-analysis and meta-regression of randomized-controlled trials.
Cariprazine is a new dopamine D2 and D3 receptor partial agonist antipsychotic. Meta-analytic evidence of efficacy in acute schizophrenia and specific groups of patients is lacking.
Cariprazine (Vraylar™) is a dopamine D3-preferring D2/D3 receptor partial agonist indicated for the treatment of patients with schizophrenia. This narrative review summarizes pharmacological, efficacy and tolerability data relevant...
