Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants from 18 years up to 55 years old.

Exclusion Criteria: - Administration of any investigational drug in the period within three months prior to informed consent. - Use of any prescription medication during the period 0 to 30 days or over-the-counter medication during the 0 to 5 days before entry to the study. - Donation or loss of greater than 400 ml of blood in the period 0 to 12 weeks before entry to the study. - Serious adverse reaction or hypersensitivity to any drug. - Inability to communicate or co-operate with the investigator because of a language problem, poor mental development or impaired cerebral function. - History of drug dependence (except tobacco) or psychiatric illness within the past 2 years. - Consumption of alcohol within 24 hours prior to dose administration. - Presence of pain incurred by unknown causes. - Pregnancy or nursing. - Positive urine drug screen for drugs with a high potential for abuse and low persistence in the urine. - Inability to refrain from smoking during study days. - Any other condition which, in the opinion of the investigators, is likely to interfere with the successful collection of the measures required for the study.
