Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 1.0 Drug: metronidazole IV 500 mg
On Day 1, subjects will receive a single dose of 500 mg metronidazole by intravenous infusion over 20 minutes. On Day 3 to Day 7, subjects will receive multiple doses of 500 mg metronidazole by intravenous infusion over 20 minutes 4 times a day (every 6 hours) for 5 days.
