Webinar Overview

Among the many central nervous system therapeutic areas associated with modulatory activity of the GABAA ion channel, GABAA α5-subtype negative allosteric modulators (NAMs) have been a focus of interest for the treatment of cognitive disorders. Join this webinar to learn how scientists identified a novel, orally active GABAA α5-selective NAM that improved hippocampal memory function without the anxiogenic-like or pro-convulsant effects associated with non-selective GABAA NAMs.

Through a case study of ONO-8590580, you’ll discover strategies to take a metabolically unstable hit compound through lead optimization, improving functional selectivity, absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME), pharmacokinetics (PK) and brain receptor occupancy along the way.
