    iv. Cardiac- Normal ECG or ECG without any clinically significant findings as defined by the treating physician

    •  Women of childbearing potential must be using an adequate method of contraception to avoid pregnancy throughout the study and for at least 6 weeks after the last dose of study drug to minimize the risk of pregnancy
    •  Males with female partners of child-bearing potential must agree to use physician-approved contraceptive methods (e.g., abstinence, condoms, vasectomy) throughout the study and should avoid conceiving children for 6 weeks following the last dose of study drug

    Exclusion Criteria:
