  • Change From Baseline in Respiratory Clinical Signs and Symptoms on Visual Analog Scales (VAS) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 3, and Month 6, Month 9, or Month 12 [EOT], and End of study ([EOS] EOT + 6 months) ]
  • Number of Subjects With Relapse [ Time Frame: During the 6 months following EOT (EOT + 3 months, EOT + 6 months) ]
  • Time to Relapse After EOT [ Time Frame: During the 6 months following EOT (EOT + 3 months, EOT + 6 months) ]
  • Global Survival: Number of Subjects With an Outcome of Death [ Time Frame: Baseline through EOS (EOT + 6 months) ]
  • Change From Baseline in Quality of Life (QOL): St. George's Hospital Respiratory Questionnaire [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 3, and Month 6, Month 9, or Month 12 [EOT], and EOS (EOT + 6 months) ]
  • Number of Subjects With Complete or Partial Radiological Response [ Time Frame: Month 3, and Month 6, Month 9, or Month 12 [EOT] ]
  • Number of Subjects With Mycological Response of Eradication [ Time Frame: Month 3, and Month 6, Month 9, or Month 12 [EOT] ]
  • Number of Subjects With Complete or Partial Serological Response [ Time Frame: Month 3, and Month 6, Month 9, or Month 12 [EOT] ]
