The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The purpose of this study is to determine the absorption and excretion kinetics of bardoxolone methyl and to determine and characterize metabolites present in plasma, urine and feces in men following a single oral does or 20 mg of [14C]-bardoxolone methyl.
