  • Significant poorly controlled cardiac disorders, such as unstable angina pectoris, poorly controlled heart failure, arrhythmia requiring treatment, or myocardial infarction within the last 3 months
  • Cardiovascular, hepatic, neurological or endocrine disease, or other major systemic disease that makes it difficult to conduct the protocol or to interpret the results
