Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 55 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Subject must voluntarily sign and date an informed consent form, approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB), prior to the initiation of any study-specific procedure.
  2. Healthy Chinese* volunteers aged between 18 and 55 years inclusive, at the time of Screening

    *Definition of "Chinese": Subject is a Han Chinese who born in China (including Hong Kong) with Han Chinese parents and grandparents who born in China (including Hong Kong).

  3. Body Mass Index (BMI) ≥19 and ≤ 24 kg/m2
  4. Subject has been a non-smoker or has not used tobacco or nicotine-containing products for at least 3 months before Screening and prior to Day 1.
  5. Subjects are in general good health with no history of significant diseases and no clinically significant abnormal findings based upon the results of physical examination, 12-lead ECG, laboratory safety tests and vital signs at screening and prior to dosing.

    • Vital signs (measured in a sitting position for at least 5 minutes) include tympanic temperature [T], pulse rate [PR], respiratory rate [RR], and blood pressure [BP]).

  6. Female subjects must be non-pregnant, non-lactating or either postmenopausal for at least 2 years or surgically sterile (e.g., hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy, bilateral tubal occlusion or ligation) for at least 6 months. For female subjects of child bearing potential, they need to consentient to use appropriate contraceptive methods (abstinence, intrauterine device, diaphragm with spermicide, use by partner of a condom with spermicide) at least 28 days prior to and after dosing. Use of oral contraceptive and implantation of contraceptive methods by female subjects are not acceptable.
  7. Male subjects who have female partners of reproductive potential must either:

    • Abstinence from sexual intercourse during Day -1 to Day 28, or
    • Use an approved method of contraception (which may include use of a condom with spermicide or use by partner of oral, implantable or injectable contraceptives, intrauterine device, diaphragm with spermicide) during Day -1 to Day 28.
    • Refrain from sperm donation during Day -1 to Day 28.

  3. Use of tobacco or nicotine products 3 months before screening and prior to Day 1.
  4. Heavy caffeine drinker (> 5 cups or glasses of caffeinated beverages [e.g., coffee tea, cola, energy drinks] per day) within 3 months prior to screening.
  5. Heavy alcohol drinker (more than 30 gram alcohol per day within 3 months prior to screening (30 gram alcohol is approximately equivalent to: i.e. 100ml of aperitif, 300ml of wine or 500ml of beer)).
  6. Any clinically significant above normal range of prothrombin time, activated partial thromboplastin time, or international normalized ratio or below normal range of Protein C or Protein S laboratory result at Screening.
  7. Documented history of bleeding diathesis, coagulopathy, or inherited disorders of coagulation.
  8. Evidence of active bleeding, including but not limited to bleeding ulcer, bleeding gums, urinalysis positive for more than trace blood at Screening and presence of occult blood in the stool at Screening.
  9. Subjects with a QTcB interval (QT interval corrected for heart rate according to Bazett's formula) > 450 msec at Screening, confirmed by a repeat assessment.
  10. Conditions predisposing to QT prolongation including pathological Q-wave (defined as Q-wave >40 msec or depth > 0.4-0.5 mV).
  11. History or presence of cardiac abnormalities or congenital long QT syndrome based on the final investigators' judgment.
  12. History or presence of malignancy within the past 2 years, with the exception of adequately treated localized skin cancer (basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma) or carcinoma in-situ of the cervix.
  13. Participation in a previous clinical trial within 3 months prior to Screening.
  14. Clinically significant surgical procedure within 3 months prior to Screening.
  15. Clinically significant blood loss or blood donation > 550 ml within 3 months prior to Day 1.
  16. Any laboratory results from complete blood picture suspicious of ongoing blood loss.
  17. Taking any prescription medication 14 days prior to Day -1.
  18. Routine or as needed consumption of medications, herbal, vitamins or hormone supplements 14 days prior to Day -1 or subject is unable to withhold these medications due to underlying clinical conditions, or unwilling to refrain from taking these medications, during the study period (Day -1 to Day 15).
  19. Known allergy or hypersensitivity to warfarin or the investigational product.
  20. Any other conditions or clinically significant abnormal findings on the physical examination, medical history, or clinical laboratory results during Screening that, in the opinion of the Principal Investigator would make the subject unsuitable for the study or put them at additional risks.
