Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    safety and tolerability will be assessed primarily by summarizing treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) and serious adverse events (SAEs).

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Immunogenicity [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Immunogenicity will be measured by laboratory assessments looking for anti-drug antibodies

Estimated Enrollment: 240
