The purpose of this study is to determine the accuracy of IEM detection by the MIND1 System
by completing a series of Patch applications and IEM ingestions in the clinic.
The OSMITTER study protocol is designed as a master protocol governing multiple substudies
for the rapid assessment of candidate subcomponents for the MIND1 System. This substudy is
being conducted to determine the accuracy of IEM detection by the MIND1 System by completing
a series of Patch applications and IEM ingestions in the clinic. Following placement of the
Patch by clinic staff, subjects will ingest one placebo-embedded IEM tablet approximately
every other hour, for a total of 4 ingestions.
Placebo-embedded IEM tablets are being tested to measure the accuracy of IEM detection by
the MIND1 system. Approximately 30 healthy volunteer subjects will be enrolled in the
substudy. The duration of this substudy from Visit 1 (Day 1) to safety follow-up will be
approximately 1 week, of which approximately 1 day will be allotted for active subject
participation, plus a 1-week safety follow-up period.

methods or who will not remain abstinent for the duration of the trial and for 90
