PF-592,379 is a drug developed by Pfizer which acts as a potent, selective and orally active agonist for the dopamine D3 receptor, which is under development as a potential medication for the treatment of female sexual dysfunction and male erectile dysfunction. Unlike some other less selective D3 agonists, a research study showed that PF-592,379 has little abuse potential in animal studies, and so was selected for further development and potentially human clinical trials.[1][2] Development has since been discontinued.[3]
