About

The purpose of this study is to determine whether ketamine-induced brain activity changes are modulated by TAK-063 administration using neuroimaging battery tests.

Full description

The drug being tested in this study is called TAK-063. This study will look at brain activity changes and treatment of psychotic-like symptoms induced by ketamine, in people who take TAK-063. The study will enroll approximately 27 participants. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of treatment sequences-which will remain undisclosed to the participants during the study (unless there is an urgent medical need). Participants will receive the following study medications by the end of the study: Ketamine intravenous infusion (IV) AND Placebo (dummy inactive pill) - this is a tablet that looks like the study drug but has no active ingredient AND Two doses of TAK-063 at one of three dose levels All participants will be asked to take 3 tablets and will receive a ketamine IV on the first day of 3 separate study periods. Participants will then be assessed for brain activity changes and other symptoms. This single-center trial will be conducted in the United States. The overall time to participate in this study is up to 7 weeks. Participants will make 6 visits to the clinic.

  • Has uncontrolled, clinically significant neurologic, cardiovascular, pulmonary, hepatic, renal, metabolic, gastrointestinal, urologic, immunologic, endocrine disease, or psychiatric disorder, or other abnormality (including MRI or EEG), which may impact the ability of the participant to participate or potentially confound the study results.
