    • Birth control pills
    • Intrauterine device (IUD)
    • Bilateral tubal ligation (FCBP must be referred to a health care provider who is familiar with contraceptive methods, if needed).
  • Male subject must agree to use a condom during sexual contact with female irrespective of pregnancy potential
  • Subjects must agree that study drug must be immediately discontinued, if pregnancy or a positive pregnancy test does occur in a female study subject or the partner of a male study subject during study participation

Exclusion Criteria:
