AVE-1625 is a highly potent, selective antagonist for the CB1 receptor [1].

The cannabinoid receptor type 1 (CB1) is a G protein-coupled receptor mainly expressed in the central and peripheral nervous system. The CB1 receptor is activated by the endocannabinoid neurotransmitters anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG). The CB1 receptor has been implicated in the maintenance of homeostasis in health and disease [2]. The CB1 receptor plays vital roles in modulating neurotransmitter release by preventing the development of excessive neuronal activity, reducing pain and other inflammatory symptoms [2].

AVE-1625 antagonized the CB1 receptor activity with the Ki values of 0.16-0.44 nM [1]. Treatment with AVE-1625 (1-3 mg/kg) significantly improved the performance of rodents in working memory tasks. At 30 mg/kg, AVE-1625 reduced caloric intake by more than 50% of controls and significantly increased lipolysis from fat tissues and reduced hepatic glycogen levels in rodents. In Wistar rats, postprandially administration of AVE1625 slightly increased the basal lipolysis in a dose-dependent manner. AVE1625 caused primary effects on metabolic blood and tissue parameters as well as metabolic rate [3]. As measured by indirect calorimetry, AVE1625 immediately increased the total energy expenditure and a transiently increased glucose oxidation [3].
