  2. Number of participants with adverse events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Up to 27 months ]
    An AE is any untoward medical occurrence in a participant temporally associated with the use of study IP and other study treatments, whether or not considered related to the study IP and other study treatments. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease (new or exacerbated) temporally associated with the use of study IP and other study treatments. This includes events related to the comparator and events related to the (study) procedures. AEs will be graded using NCI-CTCAE guidelines, version 5.0.

  3. Number of participants with serious adverse events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Up to 27 months ]
    An AE is considered "serious" if the event: results in death; is life threatening; requires inpatient hospitalization or leads to prolongation of hospitalization; results in persistent or significant disability/incapacity; results in congenital anomaly/birth defect; other medically important events.

  4. Number of participants with laboratory value abnormalities and/or AEs [ Time Frame: Up to 27 months ]
