Detailed Description:
Eligible subjects will be admitted on Day-1 and remain confined on the unit for 16 days. Each subject will receive a single dose of study drug per the defined treatment periods on the mornings of Day 1, Day 6 and Day11. There will be a minimum of 5 days between each consecutive dose group. Any subject discontinuing the study prior to completion should have all end of study evaluations completed.
