Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to examine the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of single and multiple doses of NNI-362 in healthy aged population.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Alzheimer Disease Drug: NNI-362 Drug: Placebo Phase 1

Detailed Description:
The early clinical development strategy consists of the initial evaluation of safety and tolerability of NNI-362. This FIH Phase I includes single and multiple ascending dose studies in healthy aged volunteers. Assessment of suicidal ideation/behavior will be performed at baseline and at all study visits and on days of inpatient confinement in conformance with FDA recommendations.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Measure number of treatment related adverse events following single and multiple dosing of NNI-362. [ Time Frame: 5 to 15 days ]
    To examine the number of participants with treatment-related adverse events according to criteria of CTCAE v4.0

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Measure Maximum Plasma Concentration with single or multiple dosing of NNI-362. [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
    Following single and multiple dosing of oral NNI-362 assess the maximum plasma concentration [Cmax].

  2. Measure Area Under the Curve with single and multiple dosing of NNI-362 [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
    Following single and multiple dosing of oral NNI-362 assess the area under the curve [AUC].
