1.Primary Outcome
Title Percentage of Subjects With at Least One Adverse Event (AE) During the Study Period of 8 Years
Hide Description

An AE is any untoward medical occurrence in a subject or trial subject that is administered a drug or biologic (medicinal product) or that is using a medical device. The event does not necessarily have a causal relationship with that treatment or usage.

First dose of CZP was at Baseline of one of the feeder studies C87011 [NCT00548834] or C87014 [NCT00544154] for subjects randomized to CZP, or at First Visit (Week 0) of this study for subjects randomized to Placebo.
