This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of an oral treatment, BCX4161, in preventing acute attacks in subjects with hereditary angioedema (HAE). Eligible subjects will be randomized to receive one of two doses of BCX4161 or placebo for 12 weeks. The study will compare the number of acute attacks in each treatment group, as well as a number of other clinical outcomes, and the safety and tolerability of each dose of BCX4161 compared to placebo.
