This open-label, two-period, fixed-sequence study will investigate the pharmacokinetics and safety of multiple doses of aleglitazar on a single dose of digoxin in healthy volunteers. In period 1, volunteers will receive a single dose of digoxin, in period 2 volunteers will receive multiple doses of aleglitazar and a single dose of digoxin. The anticipated time on study treatment is one month.
