Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to First Protocol-Defined Relapse (TFR) in the Double-Blind Period [ Time Frame: Up to Week 224 ]
    TFR was defined as time from randomization to first occurrence of relapse in the DB period. Protocol-defined relapse was occurrence of new or worsening neurological symptoms attributable to neurological neuromyelitis optica (NMO) or neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) as adjudicated by an independent clinical endpoint committee (CEC). Symptoms had to persist for >24 hours and not be attributable to confounding clinical factors (e.g., fever, infection, injury, change in mood, adverse reactions to medications). New or worsening neurological symptoms that occurred < 31 days following onset of a protocol-defined relapse were considered part of same relapse (i.e., if 2 relapses had onset days that were 30 days of one another, they were counted only as 1 relapse), and onset date used in analysis was the date of first relapse.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline at Week 24 in the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) Score for Pain [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
    The VAS is a subjective measure of pain consisting of a 100 mm line with two endpoints representing 0 = "no pain" and 100 = "pain as bad as it could be". Participants rated their pain by placing a mark on the line corresponding to their current level of pain. The distance along the line from the "no pain" marker was measured with a ruler giving a pain score out of 100. A higher score indicated more pain and lower scores reflected a better health state. A negative change from baseline indicates an improvement. ANCOVA was used for analysis to report the adjusted mean and standard error (SE).

  2. Change From Baseline at Week 24 in the Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy (FACIT) Fatigue Score [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
    The FACIT Fatigue scale is a 13-item questionnaire that assesses self-reported fatigue and its impact upon daily activities and function over the past 7 days. As each of the 13 items of the scale ranges from 0-4, the range of possible scores was computed using FACIT scoring algorithm as 0-52, where 0 is the worst possible score and 52 the best which indicated less fatigue. A positive change from baseline indicates an improvement. ANCOVA was used for analysis to report the adjusted mean and SE.

  3. Relapse-Free Rate During the DB Period [ Time Frame: Up to Week 216 ]
    Protocol-defined relapse was occurrence of new or worsening neurological symptoms attributable to neurological neuromyelitis optica (NMO) or neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD). Symptoms had to persist for >24 hours and not be attributable to confounding clinical factors (e.g., fever, infection, injury, change in mood, adverse reactions to medications). New or worsening neurological symptoms that occurred < 31 days following onset of a protocol-defined relapse were considered part of same relapse (i.e., if 2 relapses had onsets within 30 days of one another, they were counted as 1), and onset date used in analysis was the date of first relapse.

  4. Annualized Relapse Rate (ARR) During the DB Period [ Time Frame: Up to Week 216 ]
    The ARR is calculated as the total number of participants with relapses experienced divided by the patient-years at risk. Protocol-defined relapse was occurrence of new or worsening neurological symptoms attributable to neurological NMO or NMOSD. Symptoms had to persist for >24 hours and not be attributable to confounding clinical factors (e.g., fever, infection, injury, change in mood, adverse reactions to medications). New or worsening neurological symptoms that occurred < 31 days following onset of a protocol-defined relapse were considered part of same relapse (2 relapses with onset days in 30 days of one another was counted as 1 relapse), onset date used in analysis was the date of first relapse.

  5. Change From Baseline in Modified Rankin Scale (mRS) Scores at 24 Week Intervals During the DB Period [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 216 ]
    The mRS is a 7-point disability scale that assesses the degree of disability in participants with neurological impairment. Possible scores range from 0 (no symptoms at all) up to 6 (death). Higher scores reflect increased disability. A negative change from baseline indicates an improvement.

  6. Change From Baseline in Zarit Burden Interview (ZBI) Scores at 24 Week Intervals During the DB Period [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 168 ]
    The ZBI is the measurement to assess caregiver burden. The 22 items ask for the strain caregivers perceive. Responses range from 0 (never) to 4 (nearly always). The overall ZBI score ranges from 0 to 88. The higher the total score, the heavier the perceived burden. A negative change from baseline indicates an improvement.

  7. Change From Baseline in Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) Scores at 24 Week Intervals During the DB Period [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 216 ]
    The EDSS is an ordinal scale with values from 0 points (normal neurological examination) to 10 points (death) increasing in half-point increments once an EDSS of 1.0 has been reached. Higher scores represent increased disability. A negative change from baseline indicates an improvement.

  8. Change From Baseline in Visual Acuity (Snellen Chart) at 24 Week Intervals During the DB Period [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 216 ]
    Visual acuity was measured using Snellen 20-foot wall chart and then converted to logMAR visual acuity scoring. Lower values indicate better visual acuity. Data are reported for right eye (OD) and left eye (OS). A negative change from baseline indicates an improvement.

  9. Change From Baseline in Short Form Generic Health Survey (SF-36) Mental Component Summary Scores at 24 Week Intervals During the DB Period [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 216 ]
    The SF-36v2 is a multi-purpose, short form health survey with 36 questions.

  24. Number of Participants With at Least One Adverse Event in the DB Period [ Time Frame: Up to Week 224 ]
    An adverse event is any untoward medical occurrence in a participant administered a pharmaceutical product and which does not necessarily have to have a causal relationship with the treatment. An adverse event can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding, for example), symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a pharmaceutical product, whether or not considered related to the pharmaceutical product. Pre-existing conditions which worsen during a study are also considered as adverse events.

  25. Number of Participants With at Least One Serious Adverse Event in the DB Period [ Time Frame: Up to Week 224 ]
    A serious adverse event is defined as any untoward medical occurrence that, at any dose, results in death, is life threatening, requires hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, results in disability/incapacity, is a congenital anomaly/birth defect, or is medically significant or requires intervention to prevent one or other of the outcomes listed above.

  26. Number of Participants With Non-Serious Adverse Events of Special Interest in the DB Period [ Time Frame: Up to Week 224 ]
    Non-serious adverse events of special interest for this study included: 1) cases of an elevated alanine aminotransferase (ALT) or aspartate aminotransferase (AST) in combination with either an elevated bilirubin or clinical jaundice, 2) suspected transmission of an infectious agent by the study treatment.

  27. Number of Participants With Selected Adverse Events in the DB Period [ Time Frame: Up to Week 224 ]
    Selected adverse events for this study included: 1) non-serious infections that required treatments with intravenous (IV) antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral, 2) opportunistic infections that required treatments with oral antibiotics, antifungals, or antivirals, 3) injection-related reactions (IRRs; an AE which occured within 24 hours after study treatment injection except where the event was not considered an allergic reaction), and 4) anaphylaxis (an acute allergic/hypersensitivity reaction).

  28. Number of Participants With Suicidal Behaviors and Ideations Collected by Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale in the DB Period [ Time Frame: Baseline and Post-Baseline (up to Week 224) ]
    The Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) is an assessment tool to evaluate suicidal ideation and behavior. Categories have binary responses (yes/no) and include: Wish to be Dead; Non-specific Active Suicidal Thoughts; Active Suicidal Ideation with Any Methods (Not Plan) without Intent to Act; Active Suicidal Ideation with Some Intent to Act, without Specific Plan; Active Suicidal Ideation with Specific Plan and Intent, Preparatory Acts and Behavior; Aborted Attempt; Interrupted Attempt; Actual Attempt (non-fatal); Completed Suicide. Suicidal ideation or behavior is indicated by a "yes" answer to any of the listed categories. A score of 0 is assigned if no suicide risk is present. A score of 1 or higher indicates suicidal ideation or behavior.

  29. Blood Anti-Aquaporin-4 (AQP4) Antibody Concentration Over Time [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 2, 4, 8, 12, 24, 48, and every 24 weeks thereafter of double-blind period; every 24 weeks for first 48 weeks of open-label extension period (up to approximately 7 years) ]
