Menopausal women include women with either a) spontaneous amenorrhea for at least 12 months, not induced by a medical condition such as anorexia nervosa and not taking medications during the amenorrhea that induced the amenorrhea (for example, oral contraceptives, hormones, gonadotropin releasing hormone, anti-estrogens, selective estrogen receptor modulators [SERMs], or chemotherapy) or b) spontaneous amenorrhea for 6 to 12 months and a follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) level greater than 40 mIU/mL. or, 2) Women of child bearing potential who test negative for pregnancy at the time of enrollment based on a urine or serum pregnancy test and agree to use a reliable method of birth control during the study and for 2 weeks following the last dose of study drug

  • Have recent history of any clinically significant rash, history of any clinically severe drug-related rash, history of a chronic skin disorder (such as psoriasis, eczema or urticaria), history of significant skin hypersensitivities to household or cosmetic products, or allergens per the investigator, or presence of widespread tattoos or other skin condition that limits the assessment for rashes. Subjects who develop any rash during the Diet Lead-in/Washout Phase cannot be randomized
  • Have or have had any clinical manifestation of coronary heart disease (CHD), such as stable or unstable angina, acute coronary syndrome, myocardial infarction, or a coronary revascularization procedure including stent placement, symptomatic carotid artery disease or symptomatic peripheral arterial disease.

  • Use of any immunosuppressive therapy within 60 days prior to screening or are likely to require immunosuppressive therapy during the course of the study
