A Study To Establish The Effects Of PF-04457845 On Sleep In Healthy Volunteers

2014-07-23 21:12:17 | BioPortfolio

Summary

PF-04457845 has been shown to temporarily decrease the dream (REM) period of sleep in rats, which suggests that PF-04457845 is active in rat's brains. This study is designed to see whether this is also the case in man.

Description

The trial was terminated prematurely December 3, 2009 owing to an operational error. There were no safety or efficacy concerns relating to the study and the decision to terminate the trial.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A type of analysis in which subjects in a study group and a comparison group are made comparable with respect to extraneous factors by individually pairing study subjects with the comparison group subjects (e.g., age-matched controls).

Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
