Spiperone (Spiroperidol; brand name: Spiropitan (JP)) is a typical antipsychotic and research chemical belonging to the butyrophenone chemical class.[1] It is licensed for clinical use in Japan as a treatment for schizophrenia.[2] Additionally, spiperone was identified by compound screening to be an activator of Ca2+ activated Cl channels (CaCCs), thus a potential target for therapy of cystic fibrosis.[3]
