Primary Outcome Measures:
  • -Pharmacokinetic of AEB071 & its primary metabolite, AEE800 at predose & up to 72 hours post-operatively -Safety & tolerability (vital signs,ECGs,clinical lab evaluations,seroius/adverse events) -AEB071,AEE800 & tacrolimus in blood for both Periods [ Time Frame: at predose & 16 timepoints post-dose ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • -Pharmacokinetics of tacrolimus in presence of AEB071 -Biliary excretion of AEB071 & primary metabolite (AEE800) from patients with a T-tube -Relationship of free drug concentration, α-1 acid glycoprotein concentration & pharmacokinetics AEB071
