Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of adverse events (AEs) occurring during the study, blood pressure (supine and standing), pulse rate, respiratory rate, body temperature, laboratory variables and ECG [ Time Frame: Vital signs, laboratory variables and adverse event each day throughout the study Paper printout ECG and/or digital ECG throughout the study ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of psychometric rating scales ( VAMS, CDR test battery, DEQ, ARCI and Bond-Lader) [ Time Frame: Psychometric tests and VAMS (Visual Analogue Mood Scale) throughout the study ]
