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.
This will be a double blind, randomised, placebo controlled, cross over study in which up to 20 otherwise healthy male nicotine abstinent smokers will be tested following 3 acute treatment conditions (placebo, 4 and 8mg of GSK1034702). Each subject will undergo screening assessments within 30 days prior to administration of the first dose of study medication. There will be 3 treatment sessions and dosing will be separated by a minimum 1 week washout period. There will be two testing days (day 1 and day 2) per treatment session. On each treatment session subjects will be admitted on day 1. On day 1, subjects will be administered placebo and approximately 3 hours later, there will be a Baseline EEG/ERP recording, neuropsychological (Cogstate battery) testing and mood/craving/dependence questionnaire assessments . Subjects will be allowed to smoke until approximately midnight on day 1. On day 2, subjects will undergo a pre-drug neuropsychological (Cogstate battery) testing and questionnaire assessments of mood/craving. This will be conducted approximately 1 hour prior to dosing. Subjects will be randomized to one of six treatment sequences. Post dose EEG/ERP recording, neuropsychological (Cogstate battery) testing and mood/craving measurements will be conducted between 3 and 6 hours post treatment to coincide with peak pharmacokinetic effects. This testing will be performed approximately at 12pm following at least 12hrs of nicotine abstinence. Blood samples will be collected at baseline (pre-drug) and following drug administration to quantify exposure levels.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Inclusion Criteria A subject will be eligible for inclusion in this study only if all of the following criteria apply:
Otherwise healthy smokers as determined by a responsible physician, based on a medical evaluation including own and familial medical history, physical examination, psychiatric history, psychiatric evaluation, laboratory tests and cardiac monitoring.
A subject with a clinical abnormality or laboratory parameters outside the reference range for the population being studied may be included only if the Investigator and the GSK Medical Monitor agree that the finding is unlikely to introduce additional risk factors and will not interfere with the study procedures.
Subjects must have QTc values within the normal range, i.e. QTcB or QTcF < 450 msec. The following normal ranges for blood pressure and heart rate are given as a guide: Systolic blood pressure ≥90 and ≤140 mmHg Diastolic blood pressure ≥60 and ≤90 mmHg Heart rate ≥50 and ≤90 bpm - Male subjects between 18 and 55 years of age.
Male subjects must agree to use one of the contraception methods listed in Section 8.1.1. This criterion must be followed from the time of the first dose of study medication until 3 months post-last dose.
Subject is a smoker, i.e. on average smokes 10 or more cigarettes per day for at least 1 year prior to the screening visit. Urinary cotinine levels indicative of smoking at screening.
Body weight > 50 kg and BMI within the range 19 - 29.9 kg/m2 (inclusive).
Subjects must have AST, ALT, alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin ≤ 1.5xULN (isolated bilirubin >1.5xULN is acceptable if bilirubin is fractionated and direct bilirubin <35%). Tests may be repeated once but must be within the above limits by the day one visit.
Capable of giving written informed consent, which includes compliance with the requirements and restrictions listed in the consent form.
A subject will not be eligible for inclusion in this study if any of the following criteria apply:
Current or past diagnosis of psychiatric disorder, as assessed by the MINI.
Subjects, who in the investigator's judgement, pose a significant suicide risk. Evidence of serious suicide risk may include any history of suicidal behavior and/or any suicidal ideation of type 4 or 5 on the C-SSRS in the last 6 months.
