New Preclinical Data Confirm Naurex's Novel Antidepressant GLYX-13 Appears Free of the Behavioral Impairment and Abuse Potential Seen With Ketamine
Date:12/7/2010

MIAMI and EVANSTON, Ill., Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Naurex Inc., a clinical-stage company developing innovative treatments to address unmet needs in psychiatry and neurology, reported that data being presented today at the 49th Annual Meeting of the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ACNP) further confirm that its lead antidepressant candidate GLYX-13 appears free of the behavioral impairment and abuse potential that have limited the clinical utility of other NMDA receptor (NMDAR) modulator drugs such as ketamine.

Ketamine and similar NMDAR-modulating agents act very rapidly to alleviate the symptoms of depression and bipolar disorder, but their clinical utility has been hampered by their potential for abuse and behavioral impairment, including schizophrenia-like effects, at doses near the therapeutic dose.  GLYX-13 is Naurex's lead glycine-site functional partial agonist (GFPA) selective modulator of the NMDA receptor.  The novel GFPA class of compounds has been specifically designed to achieve the well-documented efficacy of classic NMDAR-modulating drugs, while avoiding their serious side effects.

In previously reported preclinical studies, GLYX-13 demonstrated the robust antidepressant-like activity of ketamine, including its rapid onset and long duration of effect, with no signs of side effects.  In preclinical studies, GLYX-13 has demonstrated the widest therapeutic ratio between efficacy and side effects (>500:1) of any known NMDAR modulator.

In the new study, researchers employed a sophisticated preclinical model measuring whether subjects detect and respond to the presence of a specific drug.  Rats were trained to accurately discriminate whether ketamine or saline was present in a routine injection, by choosing one of two levers that delivers a reward when correctly matched to the injected substance.  The tests were run using increasing doses of ketamine and GLYX-13, including doses that are k
