Brief Summary:
This study investigates the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of BIS-001 ER in healthy volunteers. Subjects will be dosed twice daily, with a dose escalation occurring every 2-3 days until a maximum dose of 5mg per day is reached.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: BIS-001 ER
The subjects will be dosed twice daily (BID); in an on-site setting at dose initiation and at times of dose escalation to evaluate safety, and for specimen collection for routine laboratory and pharmacokinetic analysis. Subjects will be discharged and compliance of BID dosing will be monitored via twice daily phone calls by site staff. The initial dose will be 0.5mg BID with a dose escalation every 2-3 days until a maximum tolerated dose is observed or a maximum of 2.5mg BID dose is obtained.
Drug: BIS-001 ER
BIS-001 ER is an extended release formulation of the nutritional supplement Huperzine A.
Other Name: Huperzine A




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximum serum concentration; Cmax [ Time Frame: 16 Weeks ]
    Bioavailability/Pharmacokinetic Assessments

  2. Area under the curve; AUC [ Time Frame: 16 Weeks ]
    Bioavailability/Pharmacokinetic Assessments

  3. Time of maximum serum concentration; Tmax [ Time Frame: 16 Weeks ]
    Bioavailability/Pharmacokinetic Assessments

  4. Half-life; t1/2 [ Time Frame: 16 Weeks ]
    Bioavailability/Pharmacokinetic Assessments

  5. Terminal elimination [ Time Frame: 16 Weeks ]
    Bioavailability/Pharmacokinetic Assessments

  6. Clearance [ Time Frame: 16 Weeks ]
    Bioavailability/Pharmacokinetic Assessments

  7. Volume of distribution [ Time Frame: 16 Weeks ]
    Bioavailability/Pharmacokinetic Assessments

  8. Mean residence time [ Time Frame: 16 Weeks ]
    Bioavailability/Pharmacokinetic Assessments


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and Tolerability Assessments - Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 16 Weeks ]
    Adverse events will be defined, documented, evaluated (mild/moderate/severe/life threatening; serious/non-serious; expected/unexpected; causally related to study drug or not) and reported according to all applicable institutional and governmental requirements and guidance.

  2. Safety and Tolerability Assessments - Vital Signs [ Time Frame: 16 Weeks ]
    Vital signs (e.g. blood pressure) will be monitored through the first 8 hrs after drug administration, as well as at Baseline and pre-dose.

  3. Safety and Tolerability Assessments - Neurological Evaluation [ Time Frame: 16 Weeks ]
    A standard neurological examination will be performed according to the study-specific timeline. Clinically significant new or worsened abnormalities as compared to baseline findings will have to be reported as AEs.

  4. Safety and Tolerability Assessments - Physical Evaluation [ Time Frame: 16 Weeks ]
    A standard physical examination will be performed according to the study-specific timeline. Clinically significant new or worsened abnormalities as compared to baseline findings will have to be reported as AEs.

  5. Safety and Tolerability Assessments - ECG Evaluation [ Time Frame: 16 Weeks ]

    A standard 12-lead ECG in a supine position after a 5-minute rest will be performed according to the study-specific timeline.

    The Investigator will determine whether the results of the ECG are normal or abnormal and assess the clinical significance of any abnormality. ECG tracings will be reviewed by a cardiologist if required.


  6. Safety and Tolerability Assessments - Clinical Laboratory Studies: Hematology [ Time Frame: 16 Weeks ]
    Laboratory assessments will be conducted using standard methods.

  7. Safety and Tolerability Assessments - Clinical Laboratory Studies: Biochemistry [ Time Frame: 16 Weeks ]
    Laboratory assessments will be conducted using standard methods.

  8. Safety and Tolerability Assessments - Clinical Laboratory Studies: Urinalysis [ Time Frame: 16 Weeks ]
    Laboratory assessments will be conducted using standard methods.
