8. Previous exposure to volociximab.

9. Aspirin, high dose warfarin, or heparin use. (Note: Aspirin <=81 mg/day, low-dose
warfarin 1 mg/day or low-dose heparin for IV catheter patency is allowed.)

10. Major surgery within 4 weeks prior to Day 1.

11. Requirement for immunosuppression, and/or systemic steroid therapy.
