An Open Label Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Study of GSK618334 in Healthy Male Subjects Using 11C-PHNO as PET Ligand
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between the plasma concentrations of the study drug and the amount of the study drug bound to the D3 receptors of the brain after dosing of a new compound GSK618334.
Condition or disease
This imaging study will be an open label, non-randomised PET receptor occupancy study using healthy male volunteers. The time course and degree of D3 receptor occupancy (RO) after single doses of GSK618334 will be determined using 11C-PHNO as a PET ligand labeling dopamine receptor. The PK/PD relationship between plasma concentrations of GSK618334 and D3 RO will be described. Potential relationships between D3 RO and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) endpoints will be assessed as an exploratory aim.
An Open Label Positron Emission Tomography Study in Healthy Male Subjects to Investigate Brain Dopamine D3 Receptor Occupancy, Pharmacokinetics and Safety of Single Oral Doses of GSK618334, Using 11C-PHNO as PET Ligand.
Binding of PHNO, PET ligand, in each region of interest at each scan. [ Time Frame: up to 48 hours ]
Percentage of PHNO, PET ligand, occupancy in each region of interest after a single oral dose of GSK618334 for each individual. [ Time Frame: up to 48 hours ]
Time course of GSK618334 concentration in blood following a single oral dose. [ Time Frame: up to 48 hours ]
Secondary Outcome Measures :
Adverse events and other safety assessments such as clinically relevant changes in electrocardiography (ECG); vital signs (blood pressure, heart rate); laboratory safety data and physical examination. [ Time Frame: screening to follow-up ]
Measuring GSK618334 in the body (pharmacokinetic endpoints): PK parameters of GSK618334 Cmax, AUCinf, tmax. [ Time Frame: up to 48 hours ]
