Population Description
Explanation of how the number of participants for analysis was determined. Includes whether analysis was per protocol, intention to treat, or another method. Also provides relevant details such as imputation technique, as appropriate.
Safety Set was used for baseline characteristics. The Safety Set includes all subjects who were randomized and received at least 1 dose of investigational product. One randomized subject in each group did not receive investigational product and therefore were not included in the Safety Set.

  • subjects with weight ≤50kg: 0.04 mg/kg once daily as oral solution of 0.4 mg/ml
