  7. Subject had acute myocarditis ≤ 3 months prior to screening visit.
  8. Subject has a history of diameter stenosis >70% of at least one major coronary artery, as determined by angiography or CTA obtained within the previous 5 years.
  9. Subject is on immunosuppressive or immunomodulation therapy: intravenous (IV), intramuscular (IM), or oral.
  10. Subject has a history of the following pre-existing heart disease:

    • myocardial infarction (MI), percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), or coronary artery bypass graft (CABG)
    • valvular heart disease requiring repair, replacement, or balloon valvuloplasty
    • hypertrophic/restrictive cardiomyopathy or constrictive pericarditis
  11. Subject is currently participating in, or ≤ 6 months prior to screening visit has participated in, an investigational study of a new drug, biologic, or device.
