  • Any clinically significant history of any other disease or disorder - gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, hepatic, neurological, dermatological, psychiatric or metabolic as judged by the investigator
  • Any clinically significant abnormality following the investigator's review of the pre-study physical examination, ECG and clinical laboratory tests
  • A hemoglobin value <13 g/dl (8.1 mmol/l) for males or <12 g/dl (7.5 mmol/l) for females OR a hematocrit value <40.0% for males or <37% for females OR a Red Blood Cell count <4.5 T/l (4500 mm3) for males or <3.8 T/l (3800 mm3) for females at screening and/or on the day of admission into the clinical unit
