Detailed Description:

The primary endpoint of the study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of CHF5074 after single oral administration to young healthy male volunteers.

The secondary objective of this study is to evaluate the pharmacokinetics of CHF5074 after single oral administration to young healthy male volunteers. The secondary endpoint of this study is to verify if CHF5074 plasma levels (Cmax and AUC0-t) increase proportionally with the dose (dose-linearity).

The exploratory objective of this study is to evaluate the pharmacodynamics of CHF5074 after single oral administration to young healthy male volunteers. The respective exploratory endpoint is to assess the relationship between individual maximum CHF5074 plasma concentrations and corresponding A-beta42 plasma concentrations corrected for baseline A-beta42 levels.
