We have previously described the alpha-2 adrenoceptor antagonist properties of berbanes and its stereoisomers. Of the compounds studied CH-38083 (2,3-methylenedioxy-11-betahydroxyalloberbane) has been selected for further analysis based upon its high affinity and selectivity for central and peripheral alpha-2 adrenoceptors.
