Two recent Phase II results show opposing outcomes for the potential of activators of mGlu2 in the treatment of schizophrenia. The first outcome revealed that Eli Lilly's mGlu2/3 agonist, pomaglumetad methionil (LY2140023), failed to meet the primary efficacy end point. The second report showed the mGlu2 positive allosteric modulator (PAM) from Addex (ADX71149) in conjunction with Janssen Research & Development met the primary objectives of safety, tolerability and demonstrated an effect on negative symptoms in patients.
