Several doses of tifluadom, an opioid benzodiazepine with affinity for opioid κ receptors, were tested on analgesia and locomotor activity in two strains of mice, the C57BL/6 and the DBA/2. The analgesic properties of the compound were confirmed in both strains by a tail flick test. As concerns locomotor activity both strains, that in previous researches showed opposite responses to opiates, were depressed by tifluadom, suggesting the involvement of κ receptors in this effect.
