  • Negative for drugs of abuse, nicotine, alcohol, hepatitis B-surface antigen, hepatitis C and HIV, and for female subjects, pregnancy (serum ß-CG).
  • No clinical laboratory values outside of the acceptable range as defined by BCR, unless the Principal Investigator decides they are not clinically significant.
