Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The number of adverse experiences reported by subjects and/or observed by investigator and repeated clinical evaluations of physical examinations, vital signs, 12-lead ECG (electrocardiogram), and lab tests (hematology, chemistry, urinalysis) [ Time Frame: Screening (Day-45 to Day -1) through Day 23 (end of study visit) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To measure the rate of synthesis of Amyloid Beta in cerebral spinal fluid of healthy subjects [ Time Frame: 0-36 hours post dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To measure the concentration of Amyloid Beta in cerebral spinal fluid [ Time Frame: 0-36 hours post dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To measure the rate of synthesis of Amyloid Beta and steady-state levels in the cerebral spinal fluid in MCI or early Alzheimer's disease patients [ Time Frame: 0-36 hours post dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To determine single-and repeat-dose EVP-0962 pharmacokinetics in cerebral spinal fluid and plasma [ Time Frame: 0-36 hours post dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:

This is a randomized, double-blind, sequential escalating repeat daily dose study conducted in two parts. The first part is being conducted in healthy subjects and will evaluate safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of escalating EVP-0962 doses (10, 50 100 and 200 mg) or matching placebo following once-daily administration for 14 days. The second part will evaluate the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of EVP-0962 following once-daily administration for 14 days in patients with mild cognitive impairment or early Alzheimer's disease at the dose level selected based on the available safety, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics observations in the first part.
