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.
Kappa Opioid Receptor Antagonists as Potential Therapeutics for Mood and Substance Use Disorders.
TLDR
While animal studies have indicated that compounds of this structural class are capable of normalizing withdrawal signs in animal models of cocaine and alcohol dependence and reducing cocaine andalcohol intake/seeking, additional studies are needed to determine the value of these second generation KOR antagonists in treating mood disorders and substance use disorders in humans.
Computational insights into different inhibition modes of the κ-opioid receptor with antagonists LY2456302 and JDTic
TLDR
To investigate the inhibition mechanism of the κ-OR induced by the two ligands, unbiased molecular dynamics and well-tempered metadynamics simulations were performed and a strong but single interaction mode was found to be responsible for the adverse effects and short RT of JDTic.
Kappa Opioid Receptor Ligands and Pharmacology: Diphenethylamines, a Class of Structurally Distinct, Selective Kappa Opioid Ligands.
TLDR
The recent chemical and pharmacological advances on diphenethylamines, a new class of structurally distinct, selective KOR ligands, and their potential use as therapeutics are focused on.
Receptor Occupancy of the k-Opioid Antagonist LY2456302 Measured with Positron Emission Tomography and the Novel Radiotracer
TLDR
Brain penetration and KOR target engagement after single oral doses (0.5–25 mg) of LY2456302 are investigated in 13 healthy human subjects and a dose of 10 mg appears well suited for further clinical testing.
Receptor Occupancy of the κ-Opioid Antagonist LY2456302 Measured with Positron Emission Tomography and the Novel Radiotracer 11C-LY2795050
TLDR
Brain penetration and KOR target engagement after single oral doses (0.5–25 mg) of LY2456302 are investigated in 13 healthy human subjects and a dose of 10 mg appears well suited for further clinical testing.
A Novel, Orally Bioavailable Nociceptin Receptor Antagonist, LY2940094, Reduces Ethanol Self-Administration and Ethanol Seeking in Animal Models.
TLDR
It is demonstrated for the first time that blockade of NOP receptors attenuates ethanol self-administration and ethanol-motivated behaviors, stress-induced ethanol seeking, andanol-induced stimulation of brain reward pathways in lines of rats that exhibit excessive ethanol consumption.

Long-acting κ opioid antagonists nor-BNI, GNTI and JDTic: pharmacokinetics in mice and lipophilicity
TLDR
The very slow elimination of JDTic from brain is surprising given that it undergoes active efflux, has modest affinity for homogenate, and has a shorter duration of action than nor-BNI under these conditions, and it is proposed that this persistence may result from entrapment in cellular compartments such as lysosomes.
Duration of Action of a Broad Range of Selective κ-Opioid Receptor Antagonists Is Positively Correlated with c-Jun N-Terminal Kinase-1 Activation
TLDR
This work used C57BL/6 wild type mice to determine the durations of antagonist action of novel κ-opioid receptor ligands and examined their efficacies for JNK1 activation compared with conventional competitive antagonists.
Discovery of aminobenzyloxyarylamides as κ opioid receptor selective antagonists: application to preclinical development of a κ opioid receptor antagonist receptor occupancy tracer.
TLDR
(S)-3-fluoro-4-(4-((2-fluorophenyl)pyrrolidin-1-yl)methyl)phenoxy)benzamide (18) was found to have favorable properties for a tracer for receptor occupancy, including good specific versus nonspecific binding and good brain uptake.
Association of the κ-opioid system with alcohol dependence
TLDR
Genotyped SNPs throughout OPRK1, encoding the κ-opioid receptor, and PDYN, which encodes its ligand prodynorphin, in a group of 1860 European American individuals from 219 multiplex alcohol dependent families and demonstrated associations between alcohol dependence and multiple SNPs in the promoter and 3′ end of PDYN.
The effects of kappa-opioid receptor ligands on prepulse inhibition and CRF-induced prepulse inhibition deficits in the rat
TLDR
It is demonstrated that KOR activation does not alter PPI or startle reactivity in rats, and additional studies, however, examining whether dysregulation of this opioid system contributes to cognitive deficits and other behavioral abnormalities associated with psychiatric disorders are warranted.
Association of the kappa-opioid system with alcohol dependence.
TLDR
Genotyped SNPs throughout OPRK1, encoding the kappa-opioid receptor, and PDYN, which encodes its ligand prodynorphin, in a group of 1860 European American individuals from 219 multiplex alcohol dependent families and demonstrated associations between alcohol dependence and multiple SNPs in the promoter and 3' end of PDYN.
Pharmacological Evidence for a Motivational Role of κ-Opioid Systems in Ethanol Dependence
TLDR
The results with nor-BNI confirm that κ-opioid receptor antagonism selectively decreases dependence-induced ethanol self-administration, which supports the hypothesis that dynorphin/κ-opIOid systems are dysregulated in dependence and contribute to the increased drinking seen during acute withdrawal in dependent animals.

TLDR
The results with nor-BNI confirm that kappa-opioid receptor antagonism selectively decreases dependence-induced ethanol self-administration, which supports the hypothesis that dynorphin/kappa-OPioid systems are dysregulated in dependence and contribute to the increased drinking seen during acute withdrawal in dependent rats.
Antidepressant-like effects of kappa-opioid receptor antagonists in the forced swim test in rats.
TLDR
Findings are consistent with the hypothesis that CREB-mediated induction of dynorphin in the NAc "triggers" immobility behavior in the FST and raise the possibility that kappa-antagonists may have efficacy as antidepressants, but lack stimulant or reward-related effects.
