Primary: To determine the relative bioavailability of MOA-728, an investigational drug, administered orally in both the capsule and tablet formulations to methadone maintenance subjects.Secondary: To assess the pharmacodynamic effect of MOA-728 administered both orally and subcutaneously to methadone maintenance subjects using the oral-cecal transit time.
A Randomized, Open-label, 3-period Crossover Study to Determine the Relative Bioavailability of Two Oral Formulations of MOA-728 and to Compare the Pharmacodynamics of the Two Oral Formulations of MOA-728 and the Subcutaneous Formulation in Subjects on Stable Methadone Maintenance

Healthy as determined by the investigator on the basis of medical history, physical examination, clinical laboratory test results, vital signs, and 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG).
Subjects with positive results for HBsAg, and/or HCV antibodies may be enrolled if their bilirubin and serum albumin values are within normal limits and their liver function tests are within 1.2 times the upper limit of the normal range.
A history of methadone treatment for at least 1 month before day -1 and have a positive drug test for methadone.
No concomitant medication with the exception of stable doses of anxiolytic agents, antidepressants, Seroquel, occasional sleep medications, and drugs or supplements required to enhance or maintain regulation of bowel movements (must be stopped for the 72 hours before the first dose of test article administration in each period).
Must have a high probability for compliance with and completion of the study.
