In Vitro:

[3H]-basimglurant saturation analysis on recombinant human mGlu5 reveals monophasic saturation isotherms with Kd of 1.1 nM. In competition binding experiments on human recombinant mGlu5, Basimglurant (RG7090) fully displaces [3H]-MPEP with a Ki of 35.6 nM and [3H]-ABP688 with a Ki of 1.4 nM. In HEK293 cells stably expressing human mGlu5, Basimglurant (RG7090) inhibits quisqualate induced Ca2+ mobilization with an IC50 of 7.0 nM and [3H]-inositolphosphate accumulation with an IC50 of 5.9 nM. Basimglurant (RG7090) shows similar potencies in radioligand binding and functional assay on human and rodent mGlu5 receptor orthologues.


In Vivo:

Basimglurant (RG7090) is a potent, selective, and safe mGlu5 inhibitor with good oral bioavailability and long half-life supportive of once-daily administration, good brain penetration, and high in vivo potency. It has antidepressant properties which are corroborated by its functional magnetic imaging (fMRI) profile, as well as anxiolytic-like and antinociceptive features. It is currently in phase II clinical studies for the treatment of depression and fragile X syndrome. In the Vogel conflict drinking test, Basimglurant dose dependently increases the drinking time. The total plasma exposure of efficacious doses of Basimglurant (RG7090) ranges from 5 ng/mL (0.03 mg/kg) to 37 ng/mL (0.3 mg/kg).
