Exploratory Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Study to Evaluate the Effects of ABT-614 on [11C]-(+)-PHNO Binding Potential to D3 Receptors in the Brain

2014-08-27 03:26:20 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study is being done in healthy volunteers to help researchers understand how ABT-614 works in the human body, specifically in the brain. The PET imaging technique can be thought of as a way to take pictures of chemical changes in the brain. To take a PET scan (picture), a substance with low levels of radioactivity (radiotracer) has to be injected when you are in the PET camera. The radiotracer is only radioactive for a short period of time. In this study, PET is being used to measure how the study drug attaches to specific receptors in the brain. The radiotracer used in this study, [11C]-(+)-PHNO, is currently being used for studies in people at the CAMH PET Centre.

Human experimentation that is not intended to benefit the subjects on whom it is performed. Phase I drug studies (CLINICAL TRIALS, PHASE I AS TOPIC) and research involving healthy volunteers are examples of nontherapeutic human experimentation.

Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.

Governmental guidelines and objectives pertaining to public food supply and nutrition including recommendations for healthy diet and changes in food habits to ensure healthy diet.
