The synthesis and SAR of a novel 3-benzazepine series of 5-HT2C agonists is described. Compound 7d (lorcaserin, APD356) was identified as one of the more potent and selective compounds in vitro (pEC50 values in functional assays measuring [(3)H]phosphoinositol turnover: 5-HT2C = 8.1; 5-HT2A = 6.8; 5-HT2B = 6.1) and was potent in an acute in vivo rat food(More)
We report on the synthesis, biological evaluation and structure-activity relationships for a series of 3-benzazepine derivatives as 5-HT(2C) receptor agonists. The compounds were evaluated in functional assays measuring [3H] phosphoinositol turnover in HEK-293 cells transiently transfected with h5-HT(2C), h5-HT(2A) or h5-HT(2B) receptors. Several compounds(More)
Results Worldwide, 3,054 surgeons self-describe as qualified to perform pediatric cardiac surgery on CTSnet. Extrapolating from North American surveys, it is likely that only 35% of them are trained to treat complex forms of CHD. Ideal Surgical-CHD-Incidence/Surgeon ratio was set at 140 (highest ratio with documented coverage of all surgical CHD).(More)
Insomnia affects a growing portion of the adult population in the U.S. Most current therapeutic approaches to insomnia primarily address sleep onset latency. Through the 5-hydroxytryptamine(2A) (5-HT(2A)) receptor, serotonin (5-HT) plays a role in the regulation of sleep architecture, and antagonists/inverse-agonists of 5-HT(2A) have been shown to enhance(More)
