Neboglamine (INNTooltip International Nonproprietary Name) (developmental code names CR-2249, XY-2401), formerly known as nebostinel, is a positive allosteric modulator of the glycine site of the NMDA receptor which is under investigation for Rottapharm for the treatment of schizophrenia and cocaine dependence.[1][2][3][4][5][6] It shows cognition- and memory-enhancing effects in animal models.[7][8][9] As of June 2015, it is in phase II clinical trials for both schizophrenia and cocaine abuse.[10]
