Abstract

Abstract A series of high affinity CRF receptor ligands with an imidazo[4,5- b]pyridine core is described. Individual analogues were synthesized and tested in a rat CRF receptor binding assay. The best compounds were further tested in the dog N-in-1 pharmacokinetic model to assess plasma levels at 1 mg/kg (po) and in the rat situational anxiety model to assess anxiolytic efficacy at 3 mg/kg (po). The structure–activity relationships for good receptor binding affinity are described herein.
