Further study details as provided by Biogen:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • PK profiles of the current BG00012 standard formulation and the BG00012 API formulation in healthy volunteers. Primary PK parameter will be the area under the plasma concentration curve [ Time Frame: 4 days post dosing period 2 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the safety and tolerability of the current oral BG00012 standard formulation and the encapsulated oral BG00012 API [ Time Frame: 4 days after dosing period 2 ]
