Mechanism of Action
Ghrelin Receptor Agonist
ENTYCE® (capromorelin oral solution) is a ghrelin receptor agonist that mimics the effect of ghrelin (the “hunger hormone”). Like naturally occurring ghrelin, ENTYCE binds to specific cell receptors and affects signaling in the hypothalamus, causing the feeling of hunger.
Several studies demonstrating efficacy and safety in laboratory and client-owned dogs treated with ENTYCE have been conducted.1,2
