Key exclusion criteria
- Any prior exposure to GS-9411.

- Administration of any investigational drug in the period 0 to 12 weeks before entry to

- Existence of any surgical or medical condition which, in the judgment of the clinical
investigator, might interfere with the absorption, distribution, metabolism, or
excretion of the drug.

- Presence or history of allergy requiring treatment. Hay fever is allowed unless it is
active or has required treatment within the previous 2 months.

- Donation or loss of greater than 400 mL of blood in the period 0 to 12 weeks before

within 30 days (or 5 half-lives of inducing/inhibiting agent, whichever is longer) of
enrollment in this study.

- Major surgery within 6 months of the start of this study.

- Subjects who have experienced a significant upper or lower respiratory tract infection
within the 6 weeks prior to admission.

- Subjects with significant history of respiratory, renal, hepatic, cardiovascular
(including history of systemic hypertension requiring therapy), metabolic,
neurological, hematological, gastrointestinal, cerebrovascular, or other significant
medical illness or disorder which, in the judgment of the investigator, may interfere

Summary
Brief summary
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of escalating doses of
GS-9411 in healthy male volunteers. GS-9411 is a sodium channel inhibitor, that may restore
airway hydration and mucociliary clearance in the lung.
