Ro60-0175 is a drug developed by Hoffmann–La Roche, which has applications in scientific research.[1][2] It acts as a potent and selective agonist for both the 5-HT2B and 5-HT2C serotonin receptor subtypes, with good selectivity over the closely related 5-HT2A subtype, and little or no affinity at other receptors.[3][4]
