Pozanicline (ABT-089) is a drug developed by Abbott, that has nootropic and neuroprotective effects.[1][2][3] Animal studies suggested it useful for the treatment of ADHD[4] and subsequent human trials have shown ABT-089 to be effective for this application.[5] It binds with high affinity subtype-selective to the α4β2 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors and has partial agonism to the α6β2 subtype,[6][7] but not the α7 and α3β4 subtypes familiar to nicotine. It has particularly low tendency to cause side effects compared to other drugs in the class[8][9] -making it an exciting candidate for clinical development.
