A series of imidazopyridines were evaluated as potential sodium channel blockers for the treatment of neuropathic pain. Several members were identified with good hNa(v)1.7 potency and excellent rat pharmacokinetic profiles. Compound 4 had good efficacy (52% and 41% reversal of allodynia at 2 and 4h post-dose, respectively) in the Chung rat spinal nerve ligation (SNL) model of neuropathic pain when dosed orally at 10mg/kg.
