Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability of AZD0328 by assessment of vital signs, laboratory variables and ECG [ Time Frame: Assessments taken at visit 1 (enrolment), during visit 2 (residential period) and follow up visit 3. ]
  • Safety and tolerability of AZD0328 by assessment of adverse events [ Time Frame: Non serious adverse events will be collected from the start of residential period until the end of the study. Serious adverse events will be collected from signing of consent until end of study. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the single and multiple dose pharmacokinetics (PK) of AZD0328 [ Time Frame: PK sampling taken at defined timepoints during residential period. ]
  • Evaluate the cognitive dose response relationship for AZD0328 [ Time Frame: Psychometric test battery performed at defined timepoints during residential period. ]

Enrollment: 112
