  • Up to 21 days of placebo capsules/tablets
Drug: EG-1962 (nimodipine microparticles)
Single intraventricular administration of EG-1962 via EVD and placebo capsules or tablets administered for up to 21 days

Active Comparator: Enteral Nimodipine Group

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 90 Days ]
    Incidence and severity of adverse events in EG-1962 treated subjects compared to subjects treated with standard of care oral nimodipine
