This study in healthy, adult Japanese women will characterize the PK, safety and tolerability of retosiban at the therapeutic doses planned to be evaluated in Phase 3. The PK data will be compared to a sub-set of Caucasian women given the same dose of retosiban. This study has two cohorts, cohort 1 will be a double-blind sponsor-open (subjects and investigator blinded and sponsor unblinded), randomized, continuous 48 hours (h) infusion study in healthy, adult Japanese women of child-bearing potential. Cohort 2 is an open label and continuous retosiban 48 h infusion study in Caucasian, adult, healthy women of child bearing potential. So, the PK can be compared with those of Japanese women. Approximately 32 subjects will be enrolled. In cohort 1, approximately 24 subjects will be enrolled and randomized to retosiban and placebo (2:1 ratio) to have 18 women with 12 active, 6 placebo completed subjects. In Cohort 2, 8 subjects will be enrolled to have 6 competed subjects. The total duration of a subject's involvement in this part is anticipated to be up to 6 weeks (including the 28 day screening period).


Inclusion Criteria: - Subjects who are between 20 and 45 years and of age, inclusive at the time of signing the informed consent form. - Japanese, defined as being born in Japan, having four ethnic Japanese grandparents, holding a Japanese passport or identity papers and being able to speak Japanese, and that lifestyle including diet has not changed significantly since leaving Japan. Japanese subjects should also have lived outside Japan for less than 10 years. - Caucasian subjects as defined as an individual having four grandparents who are all descendants of the original peoples of Europe. - Healthy as determined by the investigator or medically qualified designee based on a medical evaluation including medical history, physical examination, laboratory tests and cardiac monitoring obtained at the screening visit. - A subject with a clinical abnormality or laboratory parameter(s) which is/are not specifically listed in the inclusion or exclusion criteria, outside the reference range for the population being studied may be included only if the investigator in consultation with the medical monitor agree and document that the finding is unlikely to introduce additional risk factors and will not interfere with the study procedures. - Body weight >=43 kilograms (kg) and body mass index (BMI) within the range 17-29.9 kilogram per square meter (kg/m^2) (inclusive). - Female subjects- A female subject is eligible to participate if she is: A female of non-productive potential secondary to a personal history of a hysterectomy or tubal sterilization procedure. A female of reproductive potential who is not pregnant (as confirmed by a negative urine or serum human chorionic gonadotropin [hCG] test), not lactating, and agrees to follow one of the options listed in protocol. Contraception requirement for female subjects from 28 days prior to the first dose of study treatment and until completion of the follow-up visit. - Capable of giving signed informed consent as described in protocol which includes compliance with the requirements and restrictions listed in the consent form and in this protocol. Exclusion Criteria: - Alanine aminotransferase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin >1.5x upper limit of normal (ULN) (isolated bilirubin >1.5xULN is acceptable if bilirubin is fractionated and direct bilirubin <35%). - Current or chronic history of liver disease, or known hepatic or biliary abnormalities (with the exception of Gilbert's syndrome or asymptomatic gallstones) - QT duration corrected (QTc) >450 milliseconds (msec) NOTES: The QTc is the QT interval corrected for heart rate according to Bazett's formula (QTcB), QT duration corrected for heart rate by Fridericia's formula (QTcF), and/or another method, machine-read or manually over-read. The specific formula that will be used to determine eligibility and discontinuation for an individual subject should be determined prior to initiation of the study. In other words, several different formulae cannot be used to calculate the QTc for an individual subject and then the lowest QTc value used to include or discontinue the subject from the trial. - Subjects must abstain from taking prescription or non-prescription drugs (including vitamins and dietary or herbal supplements) except occasional usage of acetaminophen, within 7 days (or 14 days if the drug is a potential enzyme inducer) or 5 half-lives (whichever is longer) prior to the first dose of investigational product until completion of the follow-up visit, unless in the opinion of the investigator and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) medical monitor the medication will not interfere with the study. - History of regular alcohol consumption within 6 months of the study defined as: An average weekly intake of >7 drinks. One drink is equivalent to 12 grams (g) of alcohol: 12 ounces (360 milliliter [mL]) of beer, 5 ounces (150 mL) of wine or 1.5 ounces (45 mL) of 80 proof distilled spirits. - History of drug abuse or dependence within 6 months of the study. - History of sensitivity to heparin or heparin-induced thrombocytopenia. - History of sensitivity to any of the study medications, or components thereof or a history of drug or other allergy that, in the opinion of the investigator or medical monitor, contraindicates their participation. - Presence of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), positive hepatitis C antibody test result at screening or within 3 months prior to first dose of study treatment. - A positive pre-study drug/alcohol screen. - A positive test for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) antibody. - Where participation in the study would result in donation of blood or blood products in excess of 500 mL within 56 days. - The subject has participated in a clinical trial and has received an investigational product within the following time period prior to the first dosing day in the current study: 30 days, 5 half-lives or twice the duration of the biological effect of the investigational product (whichever is longer). - Exposure to more than four new chemical entities within 12 months prior to the first dosing day.
