SB408124 is a potent and novel nonpeptide antagonist of orexin-1 (OX(1)) receptor with Ki values of 27 nM and 57 nM in membrane formats and in whole cell, respectively. SB408124 was 50-fold selective over the human OX2 receptor [1].

Pre-treated with SB408124 before orexin A in primary astrocyte cultures from the rat cerebral cortex remarkably decreased the orexin A stimulatory activity on forskolin and basal-induced cAMP production [2].

In rats, SB408124 at dose of 30 μg/10 μl together with orexin-A after histamine (HA) or hypertonic saline injection could prevent the orexin-A-induced reduction in vasopressin (VP) concentration increase [3].
