Primary Outcome Measures:
- Steady-state hepatic pharmacokinetics of Vaniprevir (AUC) [ Time Frame: 0 to 24 hours postdose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Area under the liver concentration versus time curve
- Steady-state hepatic pharmacokinetics of Vaniprevir (concentration of drug in the liver) [ Time Frame: 6 hour, 12 hour, 24 hour postdose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Concentration of drug in the liver at 6, 12, and 24 hours postdose.
- Steady-state hepatic pharmacokinetics of Vaniprevir(apparent terminal half-life) [ Time Frame: 0 to 24 hours postdose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Half-life of drug in plasma

Vaniprevir (MK-7009) treatment
Drug: MK-7009 (Vaniprevir)
Period 1: Vaniprevir 600 mg twice daily on Days 1-3 and a single dose of Vaniprevir 600 mg on Day 4. Period 2: Vaniprevir 300 mg twice daily on Days 1-3 and a single dose of Vaniprevir 300 mg on Day 4. There will be at least a 30-day washout interval between periods 1 and 2.
