Impact of Pharmacological Manipulation of the κ-Opioid Receptor System on Self-grooming and Anhedonic-like Behaviors in Male Mice
TLDR
This study shows that the κ-receptor system is involved in an ethologically relevant measure of anhedonia, and that λ-selective doses of these antagonists can produce effects consistent with rapid anti-anhedonia.
Kappa opioid antagonist effects of the novel kappa antagonist 5′-guanidinonaltrindole (GNTI) in an assay of schedule-controlled behavior in rhesus monkeys
TLDR
Results suggest that 5′-Guanidinonaltrindole is a potent and selective kappa antagonist with a slow onset and long duration of action in rhesus monkeys.
Comparison of Pharmacological Properties between the Kappa Opioid Receptor Agonist Nalfurafine and 42B, Its 3-Dehydroxy Analogue: Disconnect between in Vitro Agonist Bias and in Vivo Pharmacological Effects.
TLDR
Pharmacology of compound 42B, a 3-dehydroxy analog of nalfurafine, is characterized and it is suggested that among the KOR-induced adverse behaviors, CPA can be separated from motor incoordination and hypolocomotion.
Repeated Administration of Opra Kappa (LY2456302), a Novel, Short-Acting, Selective KOP-r Antagonist, in Persons with and without Cocaine Dependence
TLDR
Overall, these studies demonstrate that effects of 10 mg Opra Kappa are largely consistent with those predicted for a selective KOP-r antagonist, and is therefore feasible for further studies in cocaine-dependent persons.
