  Purpose
This study will employ a single-center, randomized, double-blind parallel-group design for MNTX and placebo, with a positive control (moxifloxacin) dosed single-blind to confirm methodology, in normal healthy male and female volunteers. Multiple ECGs will be obtained after single clinical and supratherapeutic doses of MNTX to assess ECG effects compared to placebo.
