A Safety Study of LY2886721 Single Doses in Healthy Subjects

2014-08-27 03:13:20 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is a Phase 1 study in healthy subjects to evaluate the safety and tolerability of LY2886721 single doses, how the body handles the drug, and the drug's effect on the body.

Description

This is a Phase 1 study with 2 parts, both in healthy subjects. Part 1 is a subject- and investigator-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, 3-period, crossover study. Part 1 will assess the safety and tolerability of LY2886721 single doses, how the body handles the drug, and the drug's effect on the body. Part 2 is a subject- and investigator-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study to assess the safety and tolerability of an LY2886721 single dose, how the body handles the drug, and the drug's effect on the body including in cerebrospinal fluid.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal structures located chiefly in distal dendrites and, along with NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES and SENILE PLAQUES, constitute the three morphological hallmarks of ALZHEIMER DISEASE. Neuropil threads are made up of straight and paired helical filaments which consist of abnormally phosphorylated microtubule-associated tau proteins. It has been suggested that the threads have a major role in the cognitive impairment seen in Alzheimer disease.

Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent or treat ALZHEIMER DISEASE.

A progressive form of dementia characterized by the global loss of language abilities and initial preservation of other cognitive functions. Fluent and nonfluent subtypes have been described. Eventually a pattern of global cognitive dysfunction, similar to ALZHEIMER DISEASE, emerges. Pathologically, there are no Alzheimer or PICK DISEASE like changes, however, spongiform changes of cortical layers II and III are present in the TEMPORAL LOBE and FRONTAL LOBE.

A carbamate-derived reversible CHOLINESTERASE INHIBITOR that is selective for the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM and is used for the treatment of DEMENTIA in ALZHEIMER DISEASE and PARKINSON DISEASE.

A biochemical phenomenon in which misfolded proteins aggregate either intra- or extracellularly. Triggered by factors such as MUTATION, POST-TRANSLATIONAL MODIFICATIONS, and environmental stress, it is generally associated with ALZHEIMER DISEASE; PARKINSON DISEASE; HUNTINGTON DISEASE; and TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS.
