In an ongoing effort to explore the use of orexin receptor antagonists for the treatment of insomnia, dual orexin receptor antagonists (DORAs) were structurally modified, resulting in compounds selective for the OX2R subtype and culminating in the discovery of 23, a highly potent, OX2R-selective molecule that exhibited a promising in vivo profile.

Antagonism of orexin receptors has shown clinical efficacy as a novel paradigm for the treatment of insomnia and related disorders. Herein, molecules related to the dual orexin receptor antagonist filorexant were transformed into compounds that were selective for the OX2R subtype. Judicious selection of the substituents on the pyridine ring and benzamide(More)
