Volinanserin (MDL-100,907) is a highly selective 5-HT2A receptor antagonist. It is widely used in scientific research to investigate the function of the 5-HT2A receptor.[1][2][3] Volinanserin was tested in clinical trials as a potential antipsychotic,[4][5] antidepressant[6] and treatment for insomnia.[7]
