Arylepoxamides are novel compounds which binds to a newly discovered receptor, AEAr. The AEAr is widely distributed thoughout the neuro-axis. In preclinical studies, arylepoxamides demonstrate potent analgesia and a clean safety profile lacking respiratory depression, physical dependence and reward behavior.
