Vapreotide is a synthetic octapeptide somatostatin analog with a different receptor affinity to octreotide. It is used for the treatment of esophageal variceal bleeding in patients with cirrhotic liver disease and has also shown efficacy in the treatment of patients with AIDS-related diarrhea.
Vapreotide is a somatostatin analog with a higher metabolic stability than the parent hormone. Vapreotide reduces splanchnic blood flow, inhibits growth hormone release, and inhibits the release of peptides and vasoactive compounds from neuroendocrine tumors.
