An Open Label Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Study With [11C]AZ12713580 to Determine Central mGluR5 Receptor Occupancy of AZD2516 After Oral Administration to Healthy Subjects
The purpose of this study is to determine if AZD2516 binds to mGluR5 receptors in the brain. This will then help to make accurate predictions of efficacy and dosing in the future development programme.
