Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in systolic blood pressure from baseline up to end of study [ Time Frame: Up to 10 days ]
    Blood pressure shall be measured using an automatic oscillometric device, always on the leading (writing) arm. Measurements shall be taken in the supine position after having rested for at least a 5 min period.

  2. Change in diastolic blood pressure from baseline up to end of study [ Time Frame: Up to 10 days ]
    Blood pressure shall be measured using an automatic oscillometric device, always on the leading (writing) arm. Measurements shall be taken in the supine position after having rested for at least a 5 min period.

  3. Change in pulse rate from baseline up to end of study [ Time Frame: Up to 10 days ]
    Pulse rate shall be measured using an automatic oscillometric device, always on the leading (writing) arm. Measurements shall be taken in the supine position after having rested for at least a 5 min period.

  4. Change in body temperature from baseline up to end of study [ Time Frame: Up to 10 days ]
    Body temperature shall be measured in a supine position using the same thermometer throughout the study.

  5. Change in forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) from baseline up to end of study [ Time Frame: Up to 10 days ]
    FEV1 assessments shall be performed in a standardized manner as per the American Thoracic Society standards. Three good test breaths will be measured; the highest FEV1 value from these three breath tests will be recorded.

  6. Change in forced vital capacity (FVC) from baseline up to end of study [ Time Frame: Up to 10 days ]
    FVC assessments shall be performed in a standardized manner as per the American Thoracic Society standards. Three good test breaths will be measured; the highest FVC value from these three breath tests will be recorded.

  7. Number of treatment-emergent abnormalities on physical examination up to end of study [ Time Frame: Up to 10 days ]
    Physical examination (i.e., inspection, percussion, palpation, and auscultation) shall be performed during the course of the study.

  8. Change in heart rate from baseline up to end of study [ Time Frame: Up to 10 days ]
    Heart rate shall be measured using standard 12-lead electrocardiogram recorded at rest with the subject in the supine position for a 5-minute period.

  9. Change in QT interval (time interval from beginning of the Q wave until end of the T wave) calculated according to Bazett's correction (QTcB) from baseline up to end of study [ Time Frame: Up to 10 days ]
    QTcB shall be determined using standard 12-lead electrocardiogram recorded at rest with the subject in the supine position for a 5-minute period. The QTcB interval is the QT interval corrected for heart rate with Bazett's formula (QTcB = QT/RR^0.5 where RR is 60/heart rate).

  10. Change in QT interval (time interval from beginning of the Q wave until end of the T wave) calculated according to Fridericia's correction (QTcF) from baseline up to end of study [ Time Frame: Up to 10 days ]
    QTcF shall be determined using standard 12-lead electrocardiogram recorded at rest with the subject in the supine position for a 5-minute period. The QTcF interval is the QT interval corrected for heart rate with Fridericia's formula (QTcF = QT/RR^0.33 where RR is 60/heart rate).

  11. Number of treatment-emergent electrocardiogram abnormalities up to end of study [ Time Frame: Up to 10 days ]
    Electrocardiogram abnormalities shall be determined using standard 12-lead electrocardiogram recorded at rest with the subject in the supine position for a 5-minute period.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximum plasma concentration (Cmax) of ACT-128800 [ Time Frame: 144 hours ]
    Blood samples for pharmacokinetic analysis shall be taken immediately prior to dosing with ACT-128800 and at 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2.5, 4, 6, 10, 16, 24, 36, 48, 72, 96, 120 and 144 hours after dosing. Cmax will be calculated on the basis of the blood sampling time points.

  2. Time to maximum plasma concentration (tmax) of ACT-128800 [ Time Frame: 144 hours ]
    Blood samples for pharmacokinetic analysis shall be taken immediately prior to dosing with ACT-128800 and at 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2.5, 4, 6, 10, 16, 24, 36, 48, 72, 96, 120 and 144 hours after dosing. tmax will be calculated on the basis of the blood sampling time points.

  3. Area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC(0-t)) of ACT-128800 [ Time Frame: 144 hours ]
    Blood samples for pharmacokinetic analysis shall be taken immediately prior to dosing with ACT-128800 and at 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2.5, 4, 6, 10, 16, 24, 36, 48, 72, 96, 120 and 144 hours after dosing. AUC(0-t) shall be calculated according to the linear trapezoidal rule using the measured concentration-time values above the limit of quantification

  4. Area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC(0-infinity)) of ACT-128800 [ Time Frame: 144 hours ]
    Blood samples for pharmacokinetic analysis shall be taken immediately prior to dosing with ACT-128800 and at 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2.5, 4, 6, 10, 16, 24, 36, 48, 72, 96, 120 and 144 hours after dosing. AUC(0-infinity) will be calculated by combining AUC(0-t) and AUC(extra). AUC(extra) represents an extrapolated value obtained by Ct/λZ, where Ct is the last plasma concentration measured above the limit of quantification and λZ represents the terminal elimination rate constant determined by log-linear regression analysis of the measured plasma concentrations of the terminal elimination phase.

  5. Plasma half life (t1/2) of ACT-128800 [ Time Frame: 144 hours ]
    Blood samples for pharmacokinetic analysis shall be taken immediately prior to dosing with ACT-128800 and at 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2.5, 4, 6, 10, 16, 24, 36, 48, 72, 96, 120 and 144 hours after dosing. t1/2 will be calculated on the basis of the blood sampling time points.

  6. Change in lymphocyte count from baseline up to end of study [ Time Frame: Up to 10 days ]
    At various time points up to the end of study about 3 mL of blood will be collected by venepuncture in the supine position, for the measurement of lymphocyte count.
