Octreotide - Mechanism of Action

Octreotide is a long-acting drug with pharmacologic activities similar to the natural hormone somatostatin. Somatostatin is produced in the body by the hypothalamus. Like somatostatin, Octreotide suppresses luteinizing hormone response to gonadotropin-releasing hormone, decreases splanchnic blood flow and inhibits the release of secretin, motilin, gastrin, serotonin, and pancreatic polypeptide which ultimately helps in controlling the symptoms of flushing and diarrhea in carcinoid tumors. Octreotide is very stable and longer acting compared to somatostatin.
