Zicronapine (/zˈkrɒnəpn/ zye-KRON-ə-peen, previously known as Lu 31-130) is an atypical antipsychotic medication[1] formerly under development by H. Lundbeck A/S. In phase II studies zicronapine showed statistically significant separation from placebo and convincing efficacy and safety data when compared to olanzapine.[2]

Zicronapine exhibits monoaminergic activity and has a multi-receptorial profile. In vitro and in vivo it has shown potent antagonistic effects at dopamine D1, D2 and serotonin 5HT2A receptors.[3]

In 2014 Lundbeck removed zicronapine from its development portfolio in favor of pursuing the more promising antipsychotic Lu AF35700 (a prodrug of Lu AF356152).[4]
