- A positive urine drug screen.
- Use of tobacco or nicotine containing products in excess of the equivalent of 5

- Treatment with an investigational drug within 30 days (or as determined by the local
requirement, whichever is longer) or 5 half lives preceding the first dose of study
- 12 lead ECG demonstrating QTc >450 msec or a QRS interval >120 msec at Screening. If
QTc exceeds 450 msec or QRS exceeds 120 msec, the ECG should be repeated two more
times and the average of the three QTc or QRS values should be used to determine the
- Pregnant or nursing females; females of childbearing potential who are unwilling or
unable to use an acceptable method of contraception as outlined in this protocol from

- Other severe acute or chronic medical or psychiatric condition or laboratory
abnormality that may increase the risk associated with study participation or
investigational product administration or may interfere with the interpretation of
study results and, in the judgment of the investigator, would make the subject
inappropriate for entry into this study.
- Subjects with active suicidal ideation or suicidal behavior within 1 year prior to
Screening as determined through the use of the C-SSRS (Columbia-Suicide Severity
