Prinaberel (INN, USAN) (developmental code names ERB-041, WAY-202041) is a synthetic, nonsteroidal, and highly selective agonist of the ERβ subtype of the estrogen receptor.[1] It is used in scientific research to elucidate the role of the ERβ receptor.[2] Studies have indicated that selective ERβ agonists like prinaberel could be useful in the clinical treatment of a variety of medical conditions including inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, endometriosis, and sepsis.[3] Accordingly, prinaberel either was or still is under investigation by Wyeth for the treatment of some of these conditions.[4]
