This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
AstraZeneca Identifier:
First received: June 7, 2010
Last updated: December 6, 2010
Last verified: December 2010
To investigate the safety and tolerability of TC-5214 following oral administration of single and multiple ascending doses compared to placebo.

Condition Intervention Phase
Healthy Drug: TC-5214 Drug: Placebo Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 1, Single Center, Double-blind, Randomized, Placebo- Controlled, Parallel-group Study to Assess the Safety, Tolerability, and Pharmacokinetics of Oral TC-5214 (S-Mecamylamine) After Administration of Single and Multiple Ascending Doses for up to 8 Days in Healthy Male and Female Subjects

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • safety and tolerability assessed by incidence and severity of AE's, abnormalities in vital sign assessments, ECG's, telemetry, clinical lab assessments, physical exams, neurological exams, suicidality evaluations, visual acuity tests and digital ECGs [ Time Frame: Collected prior to treatment, during treatment and for 7-10 days following discharge. Volunteers will be monitored througout the study for adverse events. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To characterize the pharmacokinetics of TC-5214 in blood and urine after single and repeated oral doses by collecting blood and urine samples to measure drug concentration levels [ Time Frame: Blood sampling, every in house day; urine collection ;Days -1 through Day 6, Days 8 through 11. ]
  • To assess the effect of food on the pharmacokinetics of TC-5214 following oral administration by collecting blood and urine samples to measure drug concentration levels. [ Time Frame: Samples taken during the residential period at defined timepoints pre-dose and post-dose ]
