Objective: To examine the effects of clinical candidate, 17v on sleep/wake activity in Orexin-SAP lesioned male Wistar rats.
Summary: 17v demonstrated high receptor occupancy and marked wake-promoting effects with decreased rapid-eye-movement sleep in Orexin-SAP lesioned rats supporting its potential therapeutic utility in treating human sleep disorders.
Dose: Intracerebral injections of Orexin-SAP (100 ng/0.5 μl) in lateral hypothalamus of rats produce selective disruption of neurons containing orexin-B receptors and produces symptoms that are characteristic of narcolepsy.
