Effect of PF-04360365 On ABETA In Patients With Alzheimer's Disease And Healthy Volunteers

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Pfizer Identifier:
First received: October 30, 2009
Last updated: September 25, 2012
Last verified: September 2012
The primary goal of this study is to evaluate the effect of PF-04360365 on the clearance of ABETA from the CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) in patients with mild Alzheimer's disease and healthy volunteers. Additionally, the study will assess the pharmacokinetics of PF-04360365, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic relationships in plasma and CSF and the safety and tolerability of single doses of PF-04360365 administered to patients with Alzheimer's disease and healthy volunteers.
