Endothelin receptor

Endothelin receptor antagonist

A endothelin receptor antagonist (ERA) is a drug which blocks endothelin receptors.

Two main kinds of ERAs exist:

  • selective ERA (e.g. sitaxsentan), which affect endothelin A.
  • dual ERAs,(e.g. bosentan) which affect both endothelin A and B .
