  Purpose

The study drug, GSK356278, is a possible new medicine for the treatment of Huntington's disease. Huntington's disease, which is often called HD, is caused by a faulty gene that is passed down through families. HD causes damage to nerve cells in the brain which causes them to waste away. As the damage progresses patients develop symptoms that affect every aspect of life. HD reduces people's ability to walk, talk, think, communicate and causes uncontrolled movements. GSK356278 may slow down the progression of damage to nerve cells in people with HD and help with their ability to think.

GSK356278 was well tolerated when it was given as a single dose to healthy people. In this study we want to see what effects, both good and bad, GSK356278 has in people when it is taken every day. During the study we will look at about 3 different doses of GSK356278 in about 36 healthy people. The study will also look at how GSK356278 tablets behave in the body after it is swallowed (this is called pharmacokinetics). The study will also look at effects of GSK356278 on the body (this is called pharmacodynamics). The study will help to design future clinical studies with GSK356278.
