Brief Summary:
The objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of repeat oral dosing of ASP1941 on electrocardiogram (ECG) measurements.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Subjects Cardiac Repolarization Drug: Placebo Drug: ASP1941 Drug: Moxifloxacin Phase 1

Detailed Description:

Subjects will be randomized in four treatment sequences of twenty subjects each. Subjects in each treatment sequence will participate in a total of four treatment periods (A, B, C, and D) separated by washout periods of at least 7 days from completion of the prior period (Day 8) through clinical check-in (Day -1) of the next study period.

For Period 1, subjects will be admitted to the clinical research unit on Day -2. For each subsequent study period, subjects will be admitted to the clinical research unit on Day -1. Subjects will be discharged from the unit after completing procedures on Day 8 of each period. Subjects will receive a follow-up telephone call 7-10 days after their last clinic day (Period 4\Early Discontinuation [ED]).

Placebo Comparator: Treatment A
Drug: Placebo
Experimental: Treatment B
ASP1941 low dose
Drug: ASP1941
Experimental: Treatment C
ASP1941 high dose
Drug: ASP1941
Active Comparator: Treatment D
Drug: Moxifloxacin
Other Name: Avelox

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. QTcF evaluated through electrocardiogram analysis (ECG) [ Time Frame: Days -1, 1 and 7 (period 1) and Days 1 and 7 (period 2-4) ]
    QTcF is a QT interval corrected for heart rate (Fridericia's formula)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluation of Electrocardiogram (ECG) [ Time Frame: Days -1, 1 and 7 (period 1) and Days 1 and 7 (period 2-4) ]
  2. QTcI evaluated through electrocardiogram analysis [ Time Frame: Days -1, 1 and 7 (period 1) and Days 1 and 7 (period 2-4) ]
    QTcI is a QT interval corrected for individual heart rate

  3. QTcB evaluated through electrocardiogram analysis (ECG) [ Time Frame: Days -1, 1 and 7 (period 1) and Days 1 and 7 (period 2-4) ]
    QTcB is a QT interval corrected for heart rate (Bazett's formula)
