Salbutamol Hemisulfate (Albuterol hemisulfate) is a short-acting β2 adrenergic receptor agonist Target: β2 Adrenergic Receptor Salbutamol Hemisulfate (Albuterol hemisulfate) is a short-acting, selective beta2-adrenergic receptor agonist used in the treatment of asthma and COPD. All the effects of R, S-salbutamol on guinea-pig skeletal muscles are due to the activity of the R-enantiomer. Thus there is a common enantiomeric profile for the skeletal muscle and bronchorelaxant activity of the compound. Short-term Salbutamol intake did appear to improve performance during intense submaximal exercise with concomitant increase in substrate availability and utilization, but the exact mechanisms involved need further investigation. Short-term administration of salbutamol increases voluntary muscle strength in man. However, the magnitude and duration of this effect vary between muscle groups. This study implies that the beta 2-adrenoceptor agonists may be of therapeutic potential in altering skeletal muscle function in humans.
