Ivan, creo que tenes razon en cuanto al error de tipeo del original. Yo tambien contemplo la posibilidad de que en vez de ON sea AND.

La hipocretina es un neurotransmisor que se segrega en el hipotalamo perifornical. En este caso, dichos tratamientos no actúan sobre los neurotransmisores arriba mencionados.

Pienso que la expresión "target hypocretin" comprende tanto al neurotransmisor mismo como a sus receptores o a otros aspectos de la fisiología del neurotransmisor (síntesis, recaptación, degradación, etc), todos los cuales podrían ser abordables farmacológicamente
