are in normal physical health (i.e., no clinically significant systemic disease) as
judged by the Investigator upon physical examination of the subject; d.Subjects do not
require concomitant medication except for low-dose inhaled glucocorticoids for
allergic rhinitis or mild concomitant asthma, if dose is stabilized before entry in
