Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Any Abnormal Laboratory Test Results (Part 1* and 2) [ Time Frame: Day 1 (Baseline) up to Day 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The total number of participants with laboratory test abnormalities (without regard to baseline abnormality) was assessed. *This endpoint was a primary endpoint for Part 1 (timeframe Days 1 to 14), as data for this timeframe were not reported separately, Part 1 and 2 data were reported together.

  • Number of Participants With Vital Signs Data Met Criteria of Potential Clinical Concern (Part 1* and 2) [ Time Frame: Day 1 (Baseline) up to follow-up (28 days after Day 90) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Vital signs included blood pressure (BP; supine, sitting and standing) and pulse rate. Vital signs criteria of potential clinical concern were 1), BP: systolic BP (SBP) greater than or equal to (>=) 30 or 50 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) change from grand baseline in same posture, systolic less than (<) 90 mm Hg; diastolic BP (DBP) >=20 mm Hg change from grand baseline in same posture, diastolic <50 mm Hg; 2), pulse rate (supine, sitting and standing): <40 or greater than (>) 120 beats per minute (bpm); Standing: <40 or >140 bpm. *This endpoint was a primary endpoint for Part 1 (timeframe Days 1 to 14), as data for this timeframe were not reported separately, Part 1 and 2 data were reported together.

  • Number of Participants With Electrocardiograms (ECGs) Data Met Criteria of Potential Clinical Concern (Part 1* and 2) [ Time Frame: Day 1 (Baseline) to Day 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    ECG criteria of potential clinical concern were 1), PR interval: >=300 milliseconds (msec); >=25% increase when baseline >200 msec; or increase >=50% when baseline <=200 msec; 2), QRS interval: >=140 msec; >=50% increase from baseline; 3), QT interval: >=500 msec, QTc interval using Fridericia's formula (QTcF interval): absolute value >=450 - <480 msec, >=480-<500 msec, >=500 msec; absolute change 30 - <60, >=60 msec. *This endpoint was a primary endpoint for Part 1 (timeframe Days 1 to 14), as data for this timeframe were not reported separately, Part 1 and 2 data were reported together.

  • Number of Participants With Significant Change in Physical Examination Findings (Part 1* and 2) [ Time Frame: Day 1 (Baseline) up to Day 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The complete physical examination included examination of the skin, eyes, ears, throat, neck, cardiac, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and musculoskeletal systems. The limited physical examination included examination of the cardiac, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and musculoskeletal systems. *This endpoint was a primary endpoint for Part 1 (timeframe Days 1 to 14), as data for this timeframe were not reported separately, Part 1 and 2 data were reported together.

  • Number of Participants With Significant Change in Neurological Examination Findings (Part 1* and 2) [ Time Frame: Day 1 (Baseline) up to Day 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The complete neurological examination included an assessment of the motor, sensory, cranial nerves, reflexes, mental status and associated motor functions. The limited neurological exam could examine the same categories of neurologic assessments as the full examination, but would differ by the depth in the examination. The examination was required to be done to the extent needed to assess the participant for any potential changes in neurological status, as determined by the Investigator, but had to always include an assessment of motor, vision and hearing. *This endpoint was a primary endpoint for Part 1 (timeframe Days 1 to 14), as data for this timeframe were not reported separately, Part 1 and 2 data were reported together.

  • Number of Participants With Suicidal Behavior and/or Ideation as Assessed by Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) (Part 1* and 2) [ Time Frame: Day 7 (Baseline) up to follow up (28 days after Day 90) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Data were mapped to Columbia-Classification Algorithm of Suicide Assessment (C-CASA) event codes. C-SSRS assessed if participant experienced: completed suicide (Code 1), suicide attempt (Code 2) (Response of "Yes" on "actual attempt"), preparatory acts toward imminent suicidal behavior (Code 3) ("Yes" on "aborted attempt", "interrupted attempt", "preparatory acts or behavior"), suicidal ideation (Code 4) ("Yes" on "wish to be dead", "non-specific active suicidal thoughts", "active suicidal ideation with methods without intent to act/some intent to act without specific plan or with specific plan and intent), self-injurious behavior, no suicidal intent (Code 7) ("Yes" on "Has participant engaged in non-suicidal self-injurious behavior"). Number of participants with "Yes" response for any of above mentioned categories was assessed. *This was a primary endpoint for Part 1 (timeframe Days 1 to 14), as data for it were not reported separately, Part 1 and 2 data were reported together.

  • Percentage of Participants With Modified Rankin Scale (mRS) Less Than or Equal to (<=2) at Day 90 (Part 2) [ Time Frame: Day 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Box and Blocks (B&B) Test at Day 90 for Paretic Hand (Part 2) [ Time Frame: Day 1 (Baseline), Day 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The B&B test is a measure of manual dexterity. The B&B apparatus consists of a box divided into 2 sections and 1-inch hardwood blocks. The blocks began in the compartment of the test box to the dominant side of the participant. The participant was required to transfer the blocks one at a time to the other side of the box as quickly as possible in 1 minute using the non-paretic hand. The box was then turned so all the blocks were in the same side as the paretic hand. The participant was then required to do the test with his/her paretic hand. The participant was told that if more than 1 block was picked up at a time it was to only count as 1 block. The participant was also told that their fingertips needed to cross the partition for the block to be counted. The performance measure for this task was the number of blocks moved within 1 minute.

The participant performed this task 3 times with each hand, starting with the non-paretic hand. The performance measure for this task was the average score measured in pounds of pressure exerted.

  • Domains of Interest: Change From Baseline in Recognition Memory Test at Day 90 (Part 2) [ Time Frame: Day 1 (Baseline), Day 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    This test assesses the ability to recognize pictures of objects. The participant was presented a series of pictures, a subset of which were the objects presented in the RBANS Naming Sub Test. After each picture was presented, the participant indicated either manually (ie, affirmative head nod) or verbally whether the picture was seen previously. The participant was given 5 seconds per picture to respond. The performance measure for this task was the total number of pictures correctly identified.

  • Gait Velocity Test at Day 90 (Part 2) [ Time Frame: Day 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The 10-meter walk test requires a 20 meter straight path, with 5 meters for acceleration, 10 meters for steady state walking, and 5 meters for deceleration. Markers were placed at the 5 and 15 meter positions along the path. The participant began to walk "at a comfortable pace" at 1 end of the path, and continued walking until he/she reached the other end. The rater used a stopwatch to determine how much time it took for the participant to traverse the 10 meter center of the path, starting the stopwatch as soon as the participant's limb crossed the first marker and stopping the stopwatch as soon as the participant's limb crossed the second marker.
