Obesity is associated with numerous metabolic abnormalities, including insulin resistance, impaired glucose tolerance/type-2 diabetes, and atherogenic dyslipidaemia with low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, high triglycerides, and increased small dense low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol.
A proportion of these metabolic disorders may be attributed to increased endocannabinoid activity.
The invention concerns new compounds, agonist of peripheral Cannabinoid receptor type 1 (CB1) without effect on central system. In vivo tests confirm action on metabolic profile of obese mice model :
- Improvement in glucose tolerance,
- Improvement of insulin sensitivity,
- Decrease of triglyceride level,
- No effect on food intake (agonist action ,limited to peripheral CB1 R).
