Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of participants who experience clinical or laboratory adverse events [ Time Frame: Day 1 to 14 days following the last dose of study drug (approximately 60 days) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Change from baseline in systolic blood pressure [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change from baseline in systolic blood pressure [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 7 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Steady-state area under the concentration versus time curve [AUC(0-24hr)] for MK-4618 [ Time Frame: Day 7 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
