Brief Summary:
The study is being performed in order to learn more about AZD3480 (potential as treatment for patients with Alzheimer's Disease) and to investigate how much of AZD3480 is bound to the nicotinic receptors in the brain at different concentrations of AZD3480 in blood, as well as to investigate the period of time for this binding.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Drug: AZD3480 Radiation: 2-[18F]-F-A85380 Phase 1

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 9 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open Label Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Study Using 2-[18F]-F-A85380 to Determine α4β2 Neuronal Nicotinic Receptor Occupancy of AZD3480 After Oral Administration to Healthy Male Subjects (Non Nicotine Users)
Study Start Date : January 2008
Primary Completion Date : August 2008
Study Completion Date : August 2008

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 1 Drug: AZD3480
single dose, oral
Experimental: 2 Radiation: 2-[18F]-F-A85380
Single dose, IV



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Plasma concentration (AUC, Cmax, tmax) [ Time Frame: During time period of the PET assessement ]
  2. The whole brain uptake and regional distribution of radioligand 2-[18F]-F-A85380 following single intravenous (iv) microdose will be assessed (using derived radioactivity measurements). [ Time Frame: One on baseline day and one at the drug treatment day ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. SafetyAEs and vital signs. [ Time Frame: During the whole study ]
