A Repeat Dose Study With GSK1018921 to Assess Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics in Healthy Volunteers and Patients With Schizophrenia and to Evaluate Its Effect on PK of Midazolam. (GT1110791)
The purpose of this study is to understand safety and tolerability of the drug GSK1018921 after 14 days of dosing in healthy volunteers and then in patient volunteers.

Glycine Transporter-1 inhibitor to modulate the NMDA receptor.
Drug: Glycine Transporter-1 inhibitor
GSK1018921 is a potent and selective inhibitor of the glycine transporter-1 (GlyT-1).
This is a four part, parallel group, randomised, study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) effects of repeat doses of GSK1018921 in healthy volunteers and stable patients with schizophrenia and to evaluate its effect on pharmacokinetics of midazolam. Part A will evaluate 14 days repeat BID dosing in at least three cohorts of healthy volunteers, to assess safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of GSK1018921. Part B will study the potential drug interaction of GSK1018921 (Maximum Tolerated Dose from Part A) with midazolam with 14 days repeat BID dosing in healthy volunteers and therefore will assess the PK, safety and tolerability. Part C will be a single dose study in healthy volunteers and will include CSF sampling to assess the concentration of GSK1018921 and glycine in CSF with two doses (80 and 200 mg). Part D will study stable patients with schizophrenia, to assess safety, tolerability, PK and PD following 28 days of repeat BID dosing.
Safety assessments will include physical examination, 12-lead ECGs, holter monitoring, vital signs, orthostatic vital signs, visual assessments, and clinical lab test. Tolerability will be assessed by collecting Adverse Events.
PD assessments will include glycine in red blood cells, plasma and CSF, as well as CogState Battery test, Visual Assessment Scale, Positive And Negative Symptom Scores (PANSS) and Clinical Global Impression scales of change.
