FE 200665 (H-D-Phe-D-Phe-D-Nle-D-Arg-NH-4-Picolyl), also known as CR665, is an all D-amino acid peptide that acts as a peripherally restricted κ-opioid receptor agonist. The selectivity for FE 200665 is 1/16,900/84,600 for the human κ, μ, and δ opioid receptors, respectively. The dose of FE 200665 required to produce motor impairment (measure of CNS penetration) was 548 times higher than the dose required for antinociceptive activity.[1] It is being developed for use by Cara Therapeutics under the code CR665.

A small, double blind study was done in healthy humans to determine the analgesic effects. CR665 was dosed at 0.36 mg/kg I.V., and was compared to 15 mg oxycodone orally. CR665 had analgesic effects on visceral pain, but produced a hyperalgesic response in a skin pinch test.[2]
