Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The proportion of subjects experiencing adverse events (AEs), serious adverse events (SAEs) and study drug discontinuation. [ Time Frame: Up to 63 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics (PK) of ALN-TTRSC (Cmax, tmax, t1/2, AUC0-last, CL). [ Time Frame: Up to 90 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Effect of ALN-TTRSC on transthyretin (TTR) (Determination of % Lowering of TTR to pretreatment/Baseline Levels). [ Time Frame: Up to 90 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Effect of ALN-TTRSC on vitamin A (Determination of % Lowering of vitamin A to pretreatment/Baseline Levels). [ Time Frame: Up to 90 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Effect of ALN-TTRSC on retinol binding protein (RBP) (Determination of % Lowering of RBP to pretreatment/Baseline Levels). [ Time Frame: Up to 90 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
