Potent and selective CB2 receptor partial agonist (EC50 = 0.65 nM; maximum inhibition = 44.6%). Binds with high affinity to both human and rat CB2 receptors and displays ~ 1200-fold selectivity over CB1 (Ki values are 3.92 and 4772 nM for human recombinant CB2 and CB1 receptors respectively). Produces potent antihyperalgesic effects in several rodent models of pain.

Epilepsy is a brain disease that affects 60 million people globally. More than 20 anti-seizure drugs are currently available, but these do not address the underlying causes of the condition. This poster summarizes current knowledge about the development of the condition and highlights some approaches that have disease-modifying effects in proof-of-concept studies.
