LY-404,039 is a drug used in scientific research that acts as a selective agonist for the metabotropic glutamate receptor group II subtypes mGluR2 and mGluR3.[1] It has anxiolytic and antipsychotic effects in animal studies, but without causing sedation.[2] Early human trials using a prodrug form of LY-404,039 called LY-214,0023 have also given encouraging results.[3][4][5]
