- Sufficient intelligence to understand the nature of the trial and any hazards of participating in it. Ability to communicate satisfactorily with the Investigator and to participate in, and comply with the requirements of, the entire trial.
- Willingness to give written consent to participate after reading the ICF, and after having the opportunity to discuss the trial with the Investigator or his delegate.

- History of a serious reaction to any medicine.
- History of major bleeding, stomach ulcer, Raynaud's disease, major trauma, or major surgical procedure of any type within 6 months of dosing.
- History of minor bleeding episodes such as epistaxis, rectal bleeding (spots of blood on toilet paper), and gingival bleeding within 3 months before the study treatment.

- Positive test for hepatitis B, hepatitis C, HIV1 & HIV2.
- QTcF interval duration > 430 msec for males and 450 msec for females, obtained as an average from the 3 ECG measurements on the triplicate screening ECGs.
- Abnormal waveform morphology on any of the ECGs at screening at admission that would preclude accurate measurement of the QT interval duration.
- Physical trauma, dental extraction, surgery, or a significant illness within 4 weeks before the first dose.
- History or presence of keloid, hyperpigmentation, or other adverse reaction to skin injury or surgery.
- Use of any prescribed or non-prescribed (over-the-counter [OTC]) systemic medications (including anticoagulants or antiplatelet medications), topical medications, or herbal supplements within 14 days before the first dose (excluding paracetamol ≤ 2 g/day).

- Participated in a clinical study involving administration of an investigational drug, or a marketed drug within 90 days before administration of the first dose.
- Male subjects who consume more than 21 units of alcohol per week or female subjects who consume more than 14 units of alcohol per week (1 unit of alcohol equals 1/2 pint of beer, a glass of wine, or 1 measure of spirits) or those subjects who have a significant history of alcoholism or drug/chemical abuse within the last 2 years.
