Opioid Kappa Receptor Agonists Understanding
Opioid Kappa Receptor Agonists: Overview
Opioids have been used for thousands of years for the treatment of pain. Opioid analgesics can act through three different types of opioid receptors, called mu, delta, and kappa. To prevent undesirable CNS and opioid receptor mediated side effects, there has been an effort to develop opioids which activate peripheral kappa opioid receptors present on sensory nerves, immune cells and the dorsal root ganglion (DRG). Such compounds, Kappa Opioid Receptor Agonists (KORAs), are thought to have the potential to provide pain relief (peripheral opioid analgesia) without producing significant CNS and mu-opioid mediated side effects.
Function – Both classical opioid receptors (MOP/ KOP/DOP) and the non-classical NOP opioid receptor couple to inhibitory G-proteins. Activation of opioid receptors, for example MOP with morphine leads to: (i) closing of voltage sensitive calcium channels (VSCC); (ii) stimulation of potassium efflux leading to hyperpolarization; and (iii) reduced cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) production via inhibition of adenylyl cyclase. Overall, this results in reduced neuronal cell excitability leading to a reduction in transmission of nerve impulses along with inhibition of neurotransmitter release.
Opioid Kappa Receptor Agonists- Kappa opioid receptor (KOPr) agonists have recently received increased attention due to their analgesic effects and lack of abuse potential. There are several strategies currently used to develop safer and more effective KOPr agonists. These strategies include identifying G-protein biased agonists; developing peripherally-restricted KOPr agonists without centrally-mediated side-effects; and developing mixed opioid agonists, which target multiple receptors at specific ratios to balance side-effect profiles and reduce tolerance.

Opioid Kappa Receptor Agonists Emerging Drugs Chapters
This segment of the Opioid Kappa Receptor Agonists report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase III, II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.
Opioid Kappa Receptor Agonists Emerging Drugs
Nalfurafine hydrochloride: Shenyang Sunshine Pharmaceutical
Nalfurafine hydrochloride (TRK-820 hydrochloride) is a potent selective and orally active G protein-biased kappa opioid receptor (KOR)-agonist with high translational potential. Nalfurafine hydrochloride (TRK-820 hydrochloride) enhances the therapeutic potential of MOR-targeting analgesics, has the potential for uremic pruritis treatment. Shenyang Sunshine Pharmaceutical has initiated a phase III clinical trial for the treatment of Uremic Pruritus.
Asimadoline: Tioga Pharmaceuticals
Asimadoline is an orally active, highly selective kappa-opioid receptor agonist with approximately 500-fold greater affinity for human kappa-, as compared with either delta- or mu-opioid receptors. Due to its high selectivity for the kappa-opioid receptor, asimadoline does not produce mu-opioid like side-effects. Due to its mechanism of action, asimadoline has the potential to treat pruritus associated with a variety of conditions, including atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, end-stage renal disease, liver diseases such as cholestatic disease and primary biliary cirrhosis, malignancies, adverse drug effects, and certain orphan diseases. The drug is currently in Phase II stage of development for the treatment of pruitis.
