  3. Subjects must be treated with a stable opioid regimen at a total daily dose on average of ≥ 30 mg equivalents of oral morphine sulfate
  4. Subjects may or may not be on a routine laxative regimen at the time of Screening

Exclusion Criteria

  1. Evidence of significant structural abnormalities of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract
  2. Evidence of active medical diseases affecting bowel transit
  3. History of pelvic disorders that may be a cause of constipation
