Detailed Description

The study will include 5 treatment arms including 1 Placebo Arm and 4 active drug arms. Participants will be randomly selected to 1 of 5 arms. - Placebo - OCE-205 at 8 micrograms per hour (µg/hr) - OCE-205 at 15 micrograms per hour (µg/hr) - OCE-205 at 30 micrograms per hour (µg/hr) - OCE-205 at 50 micrograms per hour (µg/hr) This multi-center trial will be conducted in the United States and Canada. If selected for the study, participants will be randomly assigned to 1 of the 5 treatment arms.
