This is a double-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled study of safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and antiviral activity in both healthy volunteers and volunteers with chronic hepatitis B virus infection. Healthy volunteers will be administered either a single oral dose or multiple oral doses of ATI-2173 and assessed for safety and tolerability including blood tests to show how the body metabolizes and eliminates the investigational drug. Volunteers with a diagnosis of chronic hepatitis B virus infection will be administered multiple oral doses of ATI-2173 and assessed for safety and tolerability including blood tests to show how the body metabolizes and eliminates the investigational drug as well as how the drug effects the virus infection.

Drug ATI-2173

ATI-2173 is a liver-targeted phosphoramidate prodrug of clevudine designed to enhance anti-HBV activity while decreasing systemic exposure to clevudine. It will be dosed as a capsule by mouth.

Drug ATI-2173 Placebo

ATI-2173 Placebo is used as an inactive comparator to ATI-2173. It will be dosed as a capsule by mouth.

Abstinence from heterosexual intercourse from at least 28 days prior to the first study drug administration through to at least 30 days after the last dose of the study drug or until completion of the study, whichever is longer
Male partner vasectomized at least 6 months prior to the first study drug administration

Male partner has had a vasectomy less than 6 months prior to dosing, and agrees to use an additional acceptable contraceptive method from the first study drug administration through to at least 30 days after the last dose of the study drug or until completion of the study, whichever is longer Or

If male, meets 1 of the following criteria:

Is able to procreate and agrees to use 1 of the accepted contraceptive regimens and not to donate sperm from the first study drug administration to at least 90 days after the last drug administration. An acceptable method of contraception includes 1 of the following:

An ex smoker is defined as someone who completely stopped using nicotine products for at least 180 days prior to the first study drug administration)
Clinical laboratory values within the laboratory's stated normal range; if not within this range, they must be without clinical significance, as determined by an investigator

Have no clinically significant diseases captured in the medical history or evidence of clinically significant findings on the physical examination (including vital signs) and/or ECG, as determined by an investigator
