Roles Classification
Biological Role(s): beta-adrenergic agonist
An agent that selectively binds to and activates beta-adrenergic receptors.
sympathomimetic agent
A drug that mimics the effects of stimulating postganglionic adrenergic sympathetic nerves. Included in this class are drugs that directly stimulate adrenergic receptors and drugs that act indirectly by provoking the release of adrenergic transmitters.
Application(s): bronchodilator agent
An agent that causes an increase in the expansion of a bronchus or bronchial tubes.

General Comment
2011-02-01 A β2-adrenergic agonist, clenbuterol hydrochloride is used as a bronchodilator in the treatment of asthma. It is also a non-steroidal anabolic and metabolism accelerator, through a mechanism not well understood, and has been used illicitly in animal feeds to promote weight gain and to increase the muscle-to-fat body ratio of livestock.
