SIB-1757 is a drug used in scientific research which was one of the first compounds developed that acts as a selective antagonist for the metabotropic glutamate receptor subtype mGluR5.[1] It has anti-hyperalgesia effects in animals.[2] SIB-1757 along with other mGluR5 antagonists has been shown to have neuroprotective and hepatoprotective effects,[3][4] and it is also used to study the role of the mGluR5 receptor in brain development.[5]
