The serotonin2C (5-HT2C) receptor has attracted a lot of attention owing to its role in appetite regulation, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorders, and substance abuse. This review summarizes nonpatent and patent literature up to November 2005 that deals with the synthesis and characterization of selective 5-HT2C receptor agonists and antagonists. Highlights on structure-activity relationships have been included, when possible.
