Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate the safety and tolerability of ascending single oral doses of AHT956 in healthy subjects

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Drug: AHT956 Phase 1

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Enrollment : 42 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Single Center, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-and Positive-Controlled, Interleaved, Ascending Single Dose Study to Explore the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Oral AHTT956 in Healthy Subjects
Study Start Date : June 2006

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety, tolerability of ascending single doses of AHT956 in healthy subjects
  2. MTD (Maximum Tolerated Dose)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pharmacokinetics of single oral doses of AEB071
  2. Inhibition of T-cell function and lymphocytes proliferation following single rising oral of AHT956
  3. Pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic relationship of single rising oral doses of AHT956 at the end of study
  4. Identify gene expression patterns of blood cells
