This study involves an interlinked design to determine the dose associated with optimal activity and occupancy of the Glyt1I PF-03463275 in healthy subjects and schizophrenia subjects and to test this dose in combination with cognitive remediation in the treatment of cognitive impairments of Schizophrenia.

Condition Intervention Phase
Cognitive Impairments Associated With Schizophrenia
Drug: PF-03463275
Drug: Placebo
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Subject)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Translational Neuroscience Optimization of GlyT1 Inhibitor

Further study details as provided by Yale University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Receptor Occupancy after administration of PF-03463275 using PET. [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline in Receptor Occupancy at 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To examine the receptor occupancy associated with PF-03463275.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Alteration in Pre-Frontal Cortex function with PF-03463275 [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline in Pre-frontal Cortex Function at 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To test whether PF-03463275 alters Pre-Frontal Cortex function during a working memory task in a dose-related manner, as measured with fMRI.

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy of PF03463275 on cognitive measures in Schizophrenic subjects. [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline in cognitive measures at 5 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To test the efficacy of PF03463275 on Cognitive Test Performance in subjects with Schizophrenia
