- Use of tobacco- or nicotine-containing products in excess of the equivalent of 5

- Use of prescription or nonprescription drugs, vitamins and dietary supplements within
7 days or 5 half-lives (whichever is longer) prior to the first study period. As an
exception, analgesics, caffeine, and non-pharmacological methods may be used on the
discretion of the investigator to manage symptoms related to the lumbar
catheterization. Aspirin, aspirin containing products, and non-steroidal
anti-inflammatory agents that affect platelet function should not be used. Other
exceptions may be granted by a qualified member of Pfizer study management.

- Treatment with an investigational drug within 30 days preceding the first study

would exclude lumbar puncture (LP).

- Subjects who are unwilling or unable to comply with the Lifestyle guidelines presented
in the protocol.

- Other severe acute or chronic medical or psychiatric condition/status or laboratory
abnormality that may increase the risk associated with trial participation or
investigational product administration or may interfere with the interpretation of
trial results, and in the judgment of the investigator, would make the subject
inappropriate for entry into this trial.
