Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of Vital signs data, heart rate, electrocardiogram (ECG) [ Time Frame: The measure will be taken between -20 to 150 min relative to start of administration of AZD3043. ]
  • Respiratory signs data (SpO2, EtCO2, PaO2, blood gases, respiratory frequency, volume and pattern, occurrence of apnoea; [ Time Frame: The measure will be taken between -20 to 150 min relative to start of administration of AZD3043. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • PK parameters for AZD3043: Cmax (Css), AUClast, AUC, lz, t½lz, CL, Vc, Vss, Vz, tlast and mean residence time in arterial and venous plasma. [ Time Frame: Arterial: Predose, 2, 5, 15, 29, 31, 32, 35, 37, 40, 45, 60, 75, 90, 150 min postdose. Venous: Predose, 2, 5, 15, 29, 31, 32, 35, 37, 40, 45, 60, 75, 90, 150, 270 min, 8h, 24h postdose. ]
  • PK parameters for the metabolite (THRX 108893): Cmax (Css), AUClast, AUC, tmax, tlast, lz and t½lz in venous plasma [ Time Frame: 29 min, 45 min and 150 min post dose ]
