The three newly synthesized derivatives of N-butylpiperidine 1-butyl-4-phenyl-4-isonicotinoylaminoethylpiperidine (BG 25), 1-butyl-isonicotinoylpiperidine (BG 26) and N-(1-butyl-4-phenyl-4-piperidinoyl) tetrahydropapaverine (BG 9) were evaluated for analgesic activity and opiate receptor affinity. All three compounds showed analgesic activity both in hot-plate and flinch-squeak-jump tests in mice, BG 9 being the most potent. The affinity of the compounds to opiate receptor was moderate (in comparison with pentazocine): the affinity of BG 9 was much greater than that of BG 25 and BG 26. The compounds showed a pronounced inhibitory action in stimulated guinea-pig ileum preparation; this was reversible by naloxone. As evaluated on pA basis, all three investigated compounds showed moderate antagonistic activity. Also in this respect BG 9 was more active than the other two compounds. Cholinolytic and strong spasmolytic properties were observed in isolated rat ileum preparation for BG 9 only.
