A Study of the Electrocardiogram Effects and Pharmacokinetics of Ferumoxytol in Healthy Men and Women
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.

This study will define the effects of ferumoxytol on electrocardiogram (ECG) data as well as evaluate pharmacokinetics
Condition or disease
Drug: ferumoxytolDrug: moxifloxacinDrug: placebo
This trial will be conducted in order to provide an evaluation of the potential of ferumoxytol to cause cardiac arrhythmia in accordance with the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) E14 guidance. The purpose of this trial is to define the effects of ferumoxytol on electrocardiogram (ECG) data. Pharmacokinetics will also be evaluated at multiple time points as specified. Subject safety will be monitored throughout the study.

Clinically relevant abnormality on screening ECG
Subjects who have a sustained supine systolic blood pressure (SBP) > 150 mmHg or < 90 mmHg or a diastolic blood pressure (DBP) < 45 or > 95 mmHg at screening or baseline.
Subjects who have a pulse rate at rest of < 45 bpm or > 100 bpm.
Subjects who are unable to stop smoking during the study (Day -1 to Day 7). Subjects who smoke 10 or more cigarettes a day.
Excessive consumption (> 6 units per day) of food or beverages with xanthine or caffeine bases (e.g., tea, coffee, chocolate, cola; 1 unit of caffeine is contained in 6 oz of coffee, 4 oz of energy drink, 24 oz of cola, 12 oz of tea and 3 oz chocolate).

Subjects with any allergies to iron products, moxifloxacin or multiple drug (two or more) allergies as reported by the subject or as determined by the investigator.
Subjects who have taken medications [with the exception of Tylenol (acetaminophen) ≤ 2g/day, multi-vitamin that does not contain iron, hormonal contraception for females and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in the case of menopausal subjects] within 7 days or 5 half-lives (whichever is longer) prior to randomization into this study.
Subjects who the Investigator determines to have a medical status that would preclude the patient's participation in this protocol or who, for any reason, are deemed by the Investigator to be inappropriate for this study, including subjects who are unable to communicate or to cooperate during the study.
Subjects with screening lab results that fall outside of the normal range limits and are considered to be clinically significant upon review by the Investigator.
Subjects who have any condition possibly affecting drug absorption, [e.g., previous surgery on the gastrointestinal tract (including removal of parts of stomach, bowel, liver, gall bladder, or pancreas)].
Subjects who have evidence or history of clinically significant allergic (except for untreated, asymptomatic, seasonal allergies at time of dosing), hematological, endocrine, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, hepatic, psychiatric, or neurological disease. Exceptions to these criteria (e.g., stable, mild joint disease) may be made following discussions with the Medical Monitor.
Subjects who have donated blood or blood components within four weeks prior to the study. The Investigator should instruct subjects who participate in this study not to donate blood or blood components for four weeks after the completion of the study.
