Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants With Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events and Serious Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    An adverse event (AE) was any untoward medical occurrence in a clinical investigation participant administered a product or medical device, regardless of its causal relationship with study treatment. Serious adverse event (SAE) was an AE resulting in any of the following outcomes or deemed significant for any other reason: death; initial or prolonged inpatient hospitalization; was life-threatening (immediate risk of death); persistent or significant disability/incapacity; congenital anomaly. Treatment-emergent AEs are events between first dose of study treatment and up to 28 calendar days after the last administration of study treatment that were absent before treatment or that worsened after treatment. AEs included both serious and non-serious AEs.

  2. Number of Participants With Laboratory Test Abnormalities (Without Regard to Baseline Abnormality) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    The laboratory test included: hematology (hemoglobin, hematocrit, red blood cell count, platelet count, white blood cell count, absolute total neutrophils, eosinophils, monocytes, basophils, and lymphocytes), chemistry (blood urea nitrogen/urea, creatinine, glucose, glycosylated hemoglobin [diabetics only], calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, creatine kinase, sodium, potassium, chloride, total carbon dioxide, aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase, lactate dehydrogenase, total bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase, uric acid, albumin, total protein), urinalysis (color, appearance, specific gravity, pH, qualitative glucose, qualitative protein, qualitative blood, ketones, nitrites, leukocyte esterase, and microscopy), and other tests (follicle stimulating hormone, urine drug screen, urine pregnancy [human chorionic gonadotropin, hCG], serum beta hCG). Abnormality was determined by the investigator.

    The laboratory test included: hematology (hemoglobin, hematocrit, red blood cell count, platelet count, white blood cell count, absolute total neutrophils, eosinophils, monocytes, basophils, and lymphocytes), chemistry (blood urea nitrogen/urea, creatinine, glucose, glycosylated hemoglobin [diabetics only], calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, creatine kinase, sodium, potassium, chloride, total carbon dioxide, aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase, lactate dehydrogenase, total bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase, uric acid, albumin, total protein), urinalysis (color, appearance, specific gravity, pH, qualitative glucose, qualitative protein, qualitative blood, ketones, nitrites, leukocyte esterase, and microscopy), and other tests (follicle stimulating hormone, urine drug screen, urine pregnancy [human chorionic gonadotropin, hCG], serum beta hCG). Abnormality was determined by the investigator.

  7. Number of Participants With Adverse Events Related to Extrapyramidal Symptoms by Severity [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Adverse events related to extrapyramidal symptoms included dystonia, akathisia, tardive dyskinesia). Severity was assessed by the investigator. Mild means the AE didn't interfere with the participant's usual function. Moderate means the AE interfered to some extent the participant's usual function. Severe means the AE interfered significantly with the participant's usual function.

  8. Number of Participants in Each Columbia Classification Algorithm of Suicide Assessment (C-CASA) Category [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1), Weeks 2 and 4, Months 3, 6, 9 and 12, follow-up visit (7-14 days after the last dose of Month 12) ]
    Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) was an interview-based rating scale to systematically assess suicidal ideation and suicidal behavior, and was used in this study. C-SSRS responses were mapped onto the Columbia Classification Algorithm of Suicide Assessment (C-CASA). Number of participants with any of the following behaviors occurring since last visit was summarized: completed suicide; suicide attempt; preparatory acts towards suicide; suicidal ideation; self-injurious behavior (no suicidal intent).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in Unified Huntington's Disease Rating Scale (UHDRS) Total Motor Score [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1), Month 6, and Month 12 ]
    The UHDRS is a clinical rating scale developed to provide a uniform assessment of the clinical features and course of Huntington's disease (HD). The components of the full UHDRS assess motor function, cognition, behavior and functional abilities. Total Motor Score (TMS) assesses motor features of HD with standardized ratings of oculomotor function, dysarthria, chorea, dystonia, gait, and postural ability. The total motor impairment scores was the sum of all the individual 31 motor sub-items (each rated from 0 to 4), with higher scores indicating more severe motor impairment than lower scores. The range of TMS is 0-124.

  2. Change From Baseline in Unified Huntington's Disease Rating Scale (UHDRS) Total Maximum Chorea (TMC) Score [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1), Month 6, and Month 12 ]
    The UHDRS is a clinical rating scale developed to provide a uniform assessment of the clinical features and course of Huntington's disease (HD). The components of the full UHDRS assess motor function, cognition, behavior and functional abilities. Total Maximum Chorea (TMC) is a subset of the TMS assessment, and composed of the scoring of 7 chorea assessments (face, orobuccolingual, trunk, right and left upper extremities, right and left lower extremities). Each assessment is rated from 0 to 4 (absent to prolonged). TMC is obtained by adding up each of the separate scores, leading to max score of 28. The minimum score is 0. The higher the score, the worse the symptoms.

  3. Absolute Value in Clinical Global Impression of Improvement (CGI-I) Score [ Time Frame: Month 6 and Month 12 ]
    The Clinical Global Impression of Improvement (CGI-I) is a global measure of improvement or change based on the clinician's assessment of all available clinical data obtained from interviewing the participant. The CGI-I consists of a single 7-point rating of total improvement or change from baseline severity, regardless of whether or not the change is due entirely to drug treatment. Raters select 1 response based on the following question, "Compared to your participant's condition at the beginning of treatment, how much has he/she changed?" Scores are: 1: Very much improved; 2: Much improved; 3: Minimally improved; 4: No change; 5: Minimally worse; 6: Much worse; or 7: Very much worse.
