Abstract

Evaluation of selected compounds from our Corporate Compound Library in a human 5-HT(2C) receptor binding assay led to the discovery of WAY-629, a cyclohexyl[b][1,4]benzodiazepinoindole (K(i) 56 nM, E(max) 90%), which is selective for the 5-HT(2C) receptor versus other serotonin receptor subtypes, and dopamine, histamine, adrenergic, and muscarinic receptors. In addition, WAY-629 was active in vivo in a rat model of feeding behavior. An SAR study based on WAY-629 led to compound 11 (K(i) 13 nM, E(max) 102%).
