Abstract

Nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) is a nutraceutical which is sold over the counter as a dietary supplement. The overall objective of this project is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of NMN administration twice a day for 28 days, and to determine whether NMN administration for 28 days raises NAD+ levels in the blood. An additional aim is to determine the physiologic effects of raising intracellular NAD+ on bioenergetics, mitochondrial function, muscle performance and physical function, liver fat, and metabolism. Towards this long-term goal, we propose to conduct a 28-day phase Ib study to determine the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of NMN administered daily for 28 days in community-dwelling, overweight or obese, older male and female volunteers, 45 years or older. This 28-day phase Ib trial will be conducted in community-dwelling overweight or obese male and female participants, 45 years or older. The selection of the NMN dose was guided by the pharmacokinetic and safety data from phase IA and 1B trials conducted by the study investigators at the Brigham and Women's Hospital. An IND is not required for the proposed investigation of this supplement compound because: 1. the clinical investigation is intended only to evaluate the physiologic effect of NMN on bioenergetics, mitochondrial function, muscle performance, and metabolism in healthy volunteers, and 2. The investigation does not intend to evaluate the nutritional supplement's ability to diagnose, cure, mitigate, treat, or prevent a disease.
