PMID 28009436

Abstract

AMPA receptor positive allosteric modulators represent a potential therapeutic strategy to improve cognition in people with schizophrenia. These studies collectively constitute the preclinical pharmacology data package used to build confidence in the pharmacology of this molecule and enable a clinical trial application. [N-[(2S)-5-(6-fluoro-3-pyridinyl)-2,3-dihydro 1H-inden-2-yl]-2-propanesulfonamide] (UoS12258) was profiled in a number of in vitro and in vivo studies to highlight its suitability as a novel therapeutic agent. We demonstrated that UoS12258 is a selective, positive allosteric modulator of the AMPA receptor. At rat native hetero-oligomeric AMPA receptors, UoS12258 displayed a minimum effective concentration of approximately 10 nM in vitro and enhanced AMPA receptor-mediated synaptic transmission at an estimated free brain concentration of approximately 15 nM in vivo. UoS12258 reversed a delay-induced deficit in novel object recognition in rats after both acute and sub-chronic dosing. Sub-chronic dosing reduced the minimum effective dose from 0.3 to 0.03 mg·kg We conclude that UoS12258 is a potent and selective AMPA receptor modulator exhibiting cognition enhancing properties in several rat behavioural models superior to other molecules that have previously entered clinical evaluation.
