Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Part A: Number of Participants With Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Treatment period (4 weeks) plus treatment extension (1 year) ]
    The number of participants experiencing one or more adverse events during the treatment phase or extension phase of Part A.

  • Part B: Number of Participants With Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Treatment period (8 weeks) plus treatment extension (1 year) ]
    The number of participants experiencing one or more adverse events during the treatment phase or extension phase of Part B.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Part A: Number of Participants With a Complete or Major Platelet Response [ Time Frame: Treatment Period (4 weeks) ]
    Participants with a complete or major response during the treatment phase. A complete platelet response was defined as a platelet count ≥ 100 x 10^9/L during the treatment phase. A major platelet response was defined as an increase in absolute platelet count of ≥ 30 x 10^9/L for patients starting with > 20 x 10^9/L platelets, or an increase from ≤ 20 x 10^9/L to > 20 x 10^9/L and by at least 100%. Any participant receiving rescue medication was considered a non-responder. Platelet transfusions were considered rescue medication.

  • Part B: Number of Participants With a Complete or Major Platelet Response [ Time Frame: Treatment Period (8 weeks) ]
    Participants with a complete or major response during the treatment phase. A complete platelet response was defined as a platelet count ≥ 100 x 10^9/L during the treatment phase. A major platelet response was defined as an increase in absolute platelet count of ≥ 30 x 10^9/L for patients starting with > 20 x 10^9/L platelets, or an increase from ≤ 20 x 10^9/L to > 20 x 10^9/L and by at least 100%. Any participant receiving rescue medication was considered a non-responder. Platelet transfusions were considered rescue medication.

  • Part A: Number of Participants With a Platelet Response Per IWG Criteria [ Time Frame: Treatment period (4 weeks) and extension period (52 weeks). ]
    The number of participants with a platelet response according to the modified International Working Group (IWG) criteria. Response was defined as an absolute increase of ≥ 30 x 10^9/L with Baseline platelet count > 20 x 10^9/L, or with a Baseline count ≤ 20 x 10^9/L, increasing to above 20 x 10^9/L and by at least 100% during the treatment or extension period and maintained for at least 8 consecutive weeks. Platelet transfusion was not considered a rescue medication but platelet counts ≤72 hours after platelet transfusion were excluded from the analysis.

  • Part B: Number of Participants With a Platelet Response Per IWG [ Time Frame: Treatment period (8 weeks) and extension period (52 weeks). ]
    The number of participants with a platelet response according to the modified International Working Group (IWG) criteria. Response was defined as an absolute increase of ≥ 30 x 10^9/L with Baseline platelet count > 20 x 10^9/L, or with a Baseline count ≤ 20 x 10^9/L, increasing to above 20 x 10^9/L and by at least 100% during the treatment or extension period and maintained for at least 8 consecutive weeks. Platelet transfusion was not considered a rescue medication but platelet counts ≤72 hours after platelet transfusion were excluded from the analysis.

  • Part B: Peak Platelet Count [ Time Frame: Treatment Period (8 weeks) ]
    Peak platelet count (10^9/L) during the treatment period.

  • Part B: Time to First Platelet Response [ Time Frame: Treatment Period (8 weeks) and extension period (52 weeks). ]
    Participants achieving first platelet response according to IWG criteria, by study week. Platelet response was defined as an absolute increase of ≥ 30 x 10^9/L with Baseline platelet count > 20 x 10^9/L, or with a Baseline ≤ 20 x 10^9/L increasing the platelet count to above 20 x 10^9/L and by at least 100% for 8 consecutive weeks. Platelet counts obtained within 72 hours of platelet transfusion were not evaluable for platelet response.

  • Part B: Duration of Platelet Response [ Time Frame: Treatment Period (8 weeks) and extension period (52 weeks) ]
    Duration of platelet response per IWG criteria (absolute increase of ≥ 30 x 10^9/L with Baseline platelet count > 20 x 10^9/L, or with a Baseline ≤ 20 x 10^9/L increasing the platelet count to above 20 x 10^9/L and by at least 100% for 8 consecutive weeks).
