Description: JNJ-42153605 is a potent and selective mGlu2 receptor PAM with an acceptable pharmacokinetic profile in rodent and nonrodent species. JNJ-42153605 showed centrally mediated in vivo effectivity in models sensitive to mGlu2 receptor modulation such as sleep−wake electroencephalogram (sw-EEG) in rats,34 showing suppressed REM sleep during the first 4 h after oral administration of a 3 mg/kg dose.
