Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Written informed consent (IC) obtained.
  • Good general health ascertained by detailed medical history and physical examinations.
  • Males between 18 and 45 years (inclusive).
  • Body Mass Index (BMI) between 18-30 kg/m2 (inclusive, BMI = weight/height2).
  • Weight 55-100 kg (inclusive).

Exclusion Criteria:

  • A predictable poor compliance or inability to communicate well with the investigator or study centre personnel.
  • Veins unsuitable for repeated venipuncture
  • Evidence of clinically significant cardiovascular, renal, hepatic, haematological, gastrointestinal, pulmonary, metabolic-endocrine, neurological, urogenital or psychiatric diseases as judged by the investigator.
  • Any condition requiring regular concomitant medication including herbal products or likely to need any concomitant treatment during the study.
  • Susceptibility to severe allergic reactions.
  • Intake of any medication that could affect the outcome of the study, within 2 weeks prior to the first study treatment or less than 5 times a half-life of the medication. Possible enzyme inducing drugs will be discussed case-by-case with the sponsor.
  • Regular consumption of more than 21 units of alcohol per week (1 unit = 4 cl spirits, about 13 g of alcohol).
  • Current use of nicotine-containing products more than 5 cigarettes or equivalent/day.
  • Inability to refrain from using nicotine-containing products during the stay at the study centre.
  • Inability to refrain from consuming caffeine-containing beverages during the stay in the study centre, e.g. propensity in getting headache when refraining from caffeine-containing beverages.
  • Blood donation or loss of significant amount of blood within 2 months prior to the screening visit.
  • Abnormal 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) finding of clinical relevance in supine position after resting for 10 minutes at the screening visit, for example:- QTc (calculated through the Bazett's formula) > 450msec,- PR < 120 msec or > 210 msec,- QRS < 70 msec or > 120 msec.
  • Heart rate (HR) < 45 beats/minute or > 100 beats/minute in supine position after resting for 10 minutes at the screening visit.
  • At the screening visit, systolic blood pressure (BP) < 90 mmHg or > 140 mmHg in supine position after resting for 10 minutes, diastolic BP < 50 mmHg or > 90 mmHg in supine position after resting for 10 minutes.
  • Any abnormal value of laboratory, vital signs, or physical examination, which may in the opinion of the investigator interfere with the interpretation of the test results or cause a health risk for the subject if he takes part into the study.
  • History of drug abuse or positive result in drug abuse test.
  • Positive serology to human immunodeficiency virus antigen/antibodies (HIVAgAb), hepatitis C virus antibodies (HCVAb) or hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg).
  • Any other condition that in the opinion of the investigator would interfere with the evaluation of the results or constitute a health risk for the subject.
  • Participation in a clinical drug study within 3 months prior to the screening visit in this study, or earlier participation in a clinical study with ORM-12741.
  • Exposure to 14C-labelled drugs or diagnostics within 12 months prior to the screening visit.
  • Men who are not practising clinically accepted method of contraception during the study and next 3 months after the study treatment administration.
