What Is This Study About?
This Phase I study will examine the safety of single and multiple doses of NNI-362 in healthy older adults as a potential treatment for Alzheimer's disease. NNI-362 is a being studied for its potential to stimulate neurons in order to stop or slow the cognitive impairment seen with Alzheimer's disease. Participants in this study will be randomly assigned to take a liquid dose of either a placebo or study drug in escalating doses of 10 mg, 20 mg, and 60 mg.
