1. Subjects may not have had a transfusion within 7 days prior to screening assessment.

2. Concomitant elevations in bilirubin and AST/ALT above 1.0 x ULN are not permitted

- A hysterectomy

- A bilateral oophorectomy (ovariectomy)

- A bilateral tubal ligation

- Is post-menopausal Subjects not using hormone replacement therapy (HRT) must have experienced total cessation of menses for ≥ 1 year and be greater than 45 years in age, OR, in questionable cases, have a follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) value >40 mIU/mL and an estradiol value < 40pg/mL (<140 pmol/L).

Subjects using HRT must have experienced total cessation of menses for >= 1 year and be greater than 45 years of age OR have had documented evidence of menopause based on FSH and estradiol concentrations prior to initiation of HRT

OR

Negative serum pregnancy test of women of childbearing potential performed within 1 week prior to the first dose of study treatment, preferably as close to the first dose as possible, and agrees to use adequate contraception. Acceptable contraceptive methods, when used consistently and in accordance with the product label and the instructions of the physicians are as followed for 14 days before exposure to investigational product, through the dosing period and for at least 21 days after the last dose of investigational product:
