  • Publication number: 20150336930
    Abstract: The present invention relates to novel compounds, in particular novel pyridinone derivatives according to Formula (I) wherein all radicals are as defined in the application and claims. The compounds according to the invention are positive allosteric modulators of metabotropic receptors—subtype 2 (“mGluR2”) which are useful for the treatment or prevention of neurological and psychiatric disorders associated with glutamate dysfunction and diseases in which the mGluR2 subtype of metabotropic receptors is involved. In particular, such diseases are central nervous system disorders selected from the group of anxiety, schizophrenia, migraine, depression, and epilepsy. The invention is also directed to pharmaceutical compositions and processes to prepare such compounds and compositions, as well as to the use of such compounds for the prevention and treatment of such diseases in which mGluR2 is involved.

  • Publication number: 20110319287
    Abstract: The present invention relates inter alia to methods for identifying modulators of tumour necrosis factor (TNF) signalling. In one aspect, the method involves identifying an agent that modulates a signalling pathway mediated by TNF, comprising the steps of providing a host cell comprising TNF receptor 1 (TNFR1)-associated death domain (TRADD) linked to a reporter molecule, and determining at least one cellular characteristic detectable by the reporter molecule in the host cell in the presence of TNF and in the presence and absence of a candidate modulator. The invention is suitable for high-throughput screening (HTS) and high-content screening (HCS), or a combination of HTS and HCS.
