GSK618334 Repeat Dose Study

2014-08-27 03:17:07 | BioPortfolio


The proposed study will evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics of repeated oral doses of GSK618334 in healthy male and female volunteers.


GSK618334 strongly binds to dopamine type 3 receptors in the human brain and is being developed as an innovative treatment for substance dependence. This study will evaluate the safety, tolerability, blood concentrations and effect following repeated oral doses of GSK618334 in healthy male and female volunteers. The effect of food on a single oral dose of GSK618334 will also be evaluated. Another portion of this study will investigate dopamine type 3 receptor binding in the human brain by PET scan before and after repeated doses of GSK618334.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.

A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.

Mice selectively bred for hypersusceptibility to two-stage chemical skin carcinogenesis. They are also hypersusceptible to UV radiation tumorigenesis with single high-dose, but not chronic low-dose, exposures. SENCAR (SENsitive to CARcinogenesis) mice are used in research as an animal model for tumor production.

The highest dose of a biologically active agent given during a chronic study that will not reduce longevity from effects other than carcinogenicity. (from Lewis Dictionary of Toxicology, 1st ed)

The specific failure of a normally responsive individual to make an immune response to a known antigen. It results from previous contact with the antigen by an immunologically immature individual (fetus or neonate) or by an adult exposed to extreme high-dose or low-dose antigen, or by exposure to radiation, antimetabolites, antilymphocytic serum, etc.
