Inclusion criteria

  1. Healthy male or female subjects aged between 20 and 45 years (inclusive) at screening.

  2. Signed informed consent in the local language prior to any study-mandated procedure.

  3. Japanese subjects defined as a person carrying a Japanese passport, who is a descendant of four Japanese grandparents and has not been outside Japan for more than five years prior to screening.

  4. The Caucasian subjects should be distinguished especially by very light to brown skin pigmentation and straight to wavy or curly hair, and should be indigenous to Europe, northern Africa, western Asia, and India. Therefore, the study may as well include Caucasian subjects from North America, Australia and South Africa

  5. No clinically significant findings on the physical examination at screening and at admission on Day -2.

  6. Body mass index (BMI) between 18 and 25 kg/m2 (inclusive) at screening and at admission on Day -2, body weight at least 48 kg.

  7. Systolic blood pressure (SBP) 90-145 mmHg, diastolic blood pressure (DBP) 40-90 mmHg, and heart rate (HR) 40-90 bpm (all inclusive), measured on the left arm, after 10 minutes in the supine position at screening and at admission on Day -2.

  8. Triplicate 12-lead ECG without clinically relevant abnormalities measured after ten minutes in the supine position at screening and on admission on Day -2.

  9. 24-hour 12-lead Holter ECG or an equivalent assessment and/or submaximal exercise test without clinically relevant abnormalities measured at screening.

  10. Haematology, biochemistry and urinalysis test results not deviating from the normal range to a clinically relevant extent at screening and at admission.

  11. Subjects must agree to use acceptable methods of contraception:

    Male subjects

    Male subjects must use medically acceptable methods of contraception if their female partner(s) is (are) pregnant or lactating from the time of the first administration of treatment or study medication until three months following administration of the last treatment or dose of study medication. Acceptable methods include:

    • Condom used with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/suppository
    • If the subject has undergone surgical sterilisation (vasectomy with documentation of azoospermia) a condom with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/suppository must be used.

    Use acceptable methods of contraception if the male subject's partner could become pregnant from the time of the first administration of treatment or study medication until three months following administration of the last treatment or dose of study medication. The acceptable methods of contraception are as follows:

    • Condom and occlusive cap (diaphragm or cervical/vault caps) with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/suppository.
    • Surgical sterilisation (vasectomy with documentation of azoospermia) and a barrier method (condom or occlusive cap [diaphragm or cervical/vault caps] used with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/suppository).
    • The female partner uses oral contraceptives (combination oestrogen/progesterone pills), injectable progesterone or subdermal implants and a barrier method (condom or occlusive cap [diaphragm or cervical/vault caps] used with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/suppository).
    • The female partner uses medically prescribed topically-applied transdermal contraceptive patch and a barrier method (condom or occlusive cap [diaphragm or cervical/vault caps] used with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/suppository).
    • The female partner has undergone documented tubal ligation (female sterilisation). In addition, a barrier method (condom or occlusive cap [diaphragm or cervical/vault caps] used with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/suppository) must be used.
    • The female partner has undergone documented placement of an intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine system (IUS) and the use of a barrier method (condom or occlusive cap [diaphragm or cervical/vault caps] used with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/suppository).
    • True abstinence: When this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle of the subject. Periodic abstinence (e.g., calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, post-ovulation methods) and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of contraception.

    Female subjects

    Female subjects of childbearing potential must use medically acceptable methods of contraception from the time of the first administration of treatment or study medication until three months following administration of the last treatment or dose of study medication. Acceptable methods include:

    • A documented placement of an IUD or IUS and the use of a barrier method (condom or occlusive cap [diaphragm or cervical/vault caps) used with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/suppository]).
    • Documented tubal ligation (female sterilisation). In addition, a barrier method (condom or occlusive cap [diaphragm or cervical/vault caps] used with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/suppository) should also be used.
    • Double barrier method: Condom and occlusive cap (diaphragm or cervical/vault caps) with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/suppository.
    • True abstinence: When this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle of the subject. Periodic abstinence (e.g., calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, post-ovulation methods) are not acceptable methods of contraception.
  12. Ability to communicate well with the Investigator in the local language, and to understand and comply with the requirements of the study.

Exclusion criteria

  1. Women who are pregnant and/or breastfeeding.

  2. Received amisulpride for any indication within the last 2 weeks.

  14. ECG abnormalities in the standard 12-lead ECG (at screening and Day -2) and 24-hour 12-lead Holter ECG or an equivalent assessment and/or submaximal exercise test (at screening) which in the opinion of the Investigator will interfere with the ECG analysis.

  15. Any clinically important abnormalities in rhythm, conduction or morphology of resting ECG that may interfere with the interpretation of QTc interval changes. This includes subjects with any of the following (at screening and Day -2 of Period 1):

    • Sinus node dysfunction.
    • Clinically significant PR (PQ) interval prolongation.
    • Intermittent second or third degree atrioventricular (AV) block.
    • Incomplete or complete bundle branch block.

  24. History or clinical evidence of alcoholism or drug abuse. Alcohol abuse is defined as regular weekly intake of more than 14 units (Using alcohol tracker http://www.nhs.uk/Tools/Pages/NHSAlcoholtracker.aspx); drug abuse is defined as compulsive, repetitive and/or chronic use of drugs or other substances with or without problems related to their use and/or where stopping or a reduction in dose will lead to withdrawal symptoms.

  25. Excessive caffeine consumption, defined as ≥800 mg per day at screening (800 mg = 7 cups of coffee or 16 cups of tea).
