Brief Summary:
The purpose of this randomized, open-label, parallel-group, placebo-controlled study is to assess pain following subcutaneous (SC) administration of gantenerumab as a high-concentration liquid formulation (HCLF) at different injection speeds. The total duration of the study for each healthy participant will be up to approximately 21 weeks.

Healthy Volunteer Drug: Gantenerumab Drug: Placebo Phase 1

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 48 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Single-Center, Randomized, Open-Label, Parallel-Group, Placebo-Controlled, Cross-Over Study To Investigate the Impact of Speed of Injection and Site of Injection on Pain, Tolerability, Safety, and Pharmacokinetics Following Subcutaneous Administration of Gantenerumab in Healthy Volunteers
Actual Study Start Date : August 31, 2016

Actual Study Completion Date : March 22, 2017

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Gantenerumab + Placebo
Participants will be randomized to receive gantenerumab HCLF and placebo solution via SC injection according to different sequences for the site of administration and different injection speeds.
Drug: Gantenerumab
Gantenerumab as a HCLF will be administered via SC injection according to assigned treatment sequence.
Other Name: RO4909832
Drug: Placebo
Gantenerumab Placebo solution will be administered via SC injection according to assigned treatment sequence.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Local Pain as Assessed Using Visual Analog Scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: Immediately after the injection on Day 1 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Area Under the Plasma Concentration-Time Curve From Time Zero to Extrapolated Infinite Time (AUC[0-inf]) of Gantenerumab [ Time Frame: 0 hour (predose) and 6, 12, and 24 hours postdose on Day 1, on Days 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 12, 21, 43, 64, 85 ]
  2. Area Under the VAS Pain-Time Curve From Time 0 to 20 Minutes (AUC[0-20]) [ Time Frame: 0 to 20 minutes after injection on Day 1 ]
  3. Local Pain as Assessed Using Verbal Rating Scale (VRS) Score [ Time Frame: Immediately after the injection on Day 1 ]
  4. Number of Participants With Skin Reactivity, as Assessed Using a 0 (No Reactivity) to 3 (Severe Reactivity) Scale [ Time Frame: Immediately post-dose to 6 hours on Day 1 ]
  5. Number of Participants With Adverse Events [ Time Frame: From Screening to Day 85 ]
  6. Number of Participants With Anti-Gantenerumab Antibodies (ADAs) [ Time Frame: Day 1 (predose [Hour 0]) and Day 85 ]
  7. Maximum Observed Plasma Concentration (Cmax) of Gantenerumab [ Time Frame: 0 hour (predose) and 6, 12, and 24 hours postdose on Day 1, on Days 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 12, 21, 43, 64, 85 ]
