Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetic variables ( Area under the plasma concentration vs. time curve (AUC), maximum plasma concentration (Cmax), time to reach maximum plasma concentration (tmax), terminal elimination half-life (t½) and apparent oral clearance (CL/F) [ Time Frame: Blood samples taken up to 72 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
