Medications excluded within 4 weeks of randomization are: prescription omega-3 fatty acids, statins, bile acid sequestrants, cholesterol absorption inhibitors, niacin or fibrates. Dietary supplements excluded within 4 weeks prior to randomization are: L-carnitine, policosanol, guggulipid, sterol/stanol products, red rice yeast supplements, garlic supplements, soy isoflavone supplements, niacin or its analogues, probiotics and dietary fiber supplements (including >2 teaspoons Metamucil or psyllium-containing supplements per day and prebiotics), or any dietary supplement or vitamin complex product containing omega 3 acids or fish oil.

- Exposure to any investigational agent within 4 weeks prior to Visit 1.
- Has a condition the Investigator believes would interfere with the evaluation of the subject, or may put the subject at undue risk during the course of the study.
