Protocol

Animal experiment:

Animal administration[1]The male Sprague Dawley rats (n = 8/study; age: 3-6 months; weight: 450-600 g) were singly housed with water and food ad libitum and a 12 h light: 12 h dark cycle with lights on at 04:00 and off at 16:00. Sleep studies were conducted to evaluate Filorexant (3 and 10 mg/kg, p.o.), DORA-22 (10 mg/kg, p.o.) and almorexant (3 and 30 mg/kg, p.o.), employing a counterbalanced crossover design in which all animals were alternatively treated with drug and vehicle daily for either 3 or 7 consecutive days (for DORA-22 and Filorexant, respectively): 2 baseline days (no dosing), a 2 day vehicle-only run-in, a 3 or 7-day arm of drug or vehicle followed by 3 or 7 days of conditional crossover. Effects of compound treatments relative to vehicle (20% Vitamin E TPGS, p.o.) were evaluated following administration in the active phase).

Background

Filorexant (MK-6096) is an orally bioavailable potent and selective reversible antagonist of OX1 and OX2 receptor(<3 nM in binding).

In radioligand binding and functional cell based assays Filorexant (MK-6096) demonstrated potent binding and antagonism of both human OX(1)R and OX(2)R (170 receptors and enzymes. Filorexant (MK-6096) occupies 90% of human OX(2)Rs expressed in transgenic rats at a plasma concentration of 142 nM.

Filorexant (MK-6096) dose-dependently reduced locomotor activity and significantly increased sleep in rats (3-30 mg/kg) and dogs (0.25 and 0.5 mg/kg).
