Velusetrag (USAN; TD-5108) is an experimental drug candidate for the treatment of chronic constipation and irritable bowel syndrome.[1] It is a potent, selective, high efficacy 5-HT4 receptor agonist.[2]

In clinical trials, velusetrag was efficacious and well tolerated in patients with chronic constipation,[3] and showed accelerated intestinal and colonic transit after single dosing and accelerated gastric emptying after multiple dosing.[4]
