ICON Early Phase Services is conducting a research study for healthy non-smoking Adults ages 18-55. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of an investigational drug nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Another purpose of this study is to look into the interaction between either itraconazole (antifungal medication) or phenytoin (a medication used to help control seizures) when they are taken with the investigational drug. The study drug, itraconazole and phenytoin will be given as tablets or capsules orally. If you participate in Cohort 2, you will receive the study drug and phenytoin.
