Potent and selective CB2 receptor agonist (Ki values are 22.7 nM and > 10 μM for CB2 and CB1 receptors respectively, EC50 = 5.57 nM). Displays antiallodynic activity in the rat hindpaw incision model of postoperative pain. Also neuroprotective and improves motor performance in a mouse model of Huntington's Disease.

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.
