Devazepide (L-364,718, MK-329) is a drug which is structurally derived from the benzodiazepine family, but with quite different actions from most benzodiazepines, instead acting as a cholecystokinin antagonist selective for the CCKA subtype.[1] It increases appetite and accelerates gastric emptying,[2][3] and has been suggested as a potential treatment for a variety of gastrointestinal problems including dyspepsia, gastroparesis and gastric reflux.[4] It is also widely used in scientific research into the CCKA receptor.[5][6]
