Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate in a Double-Blinded Fashion the Taste and Overall Acceptability Profile of Different ALS-008176 Oral Liquid Formulations as Compared to the Reference Formulation (ALS-008176: 60 mg/mL Oral Suspension Without Sweetener/Flavor) [ Time Frame: Up to 2 hours of study drug administration ]
    Taste will be assessed using a questionnaire designed for the purpose. The questionnaire will consist of a visual analogue scale to rate 5 items (sweetness, bitterness, aroma type, aroma strength, and smell) as well as overall acceptability.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with adverse events and serious adverse events as a measure of safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: Up to 6 weeks ]
