Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from baseline in observed FVC. FVC is the maximum amount of air exhaled from the lungs after taking the deepest breath possible. Patients perform three to eight exhalations into a spirometer with the highest value recorded at Baseline and Week 6.

  • Change From Baseline in Forced Expiratory Volume (FEV1) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from baseline in observed FEV1 at one second. FEV1 is the maximum amount of air exhaled in one second. Patients perform three to eight exhalations into a spirometer with the highest value recorded at Baseline and Week 6.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in FEV1/FVC Ratio [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from baseline in FEV1/FVC ratio. This ratio is calculated by dividing the FEV1 value by the FVC value. This represents that portion (or ratio) of FVC exhaled in one second.

  • Change From Baseline in Ashworth Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from Baseline in worst upper limb scores using the Ashworth Scale at Week 6 from Baseline. Upper limb includes finger, wrist, thumb, and elbow. Worst score was the highest value measured from the finger, wrist, thumb, or elbow at Baseline and Week 6 based on treated areas. The Ashworth Scale assesses the degree of muscle tone. It is a 5-point scale where 0 equals no increase in muscle tone and 4 equals very severe muscle rigidity. A low score indicates little or no stiffness. A high score indicates severe stiffness. A negative change from baseline score indicates improvement.
