Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety as Determined by Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Start of study drug through the Follow-up Visit (Up to Day 56) ]
    An AE is defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a participant during the study; the event does not necessarily have a causal relationship with the treatment. This includes any newly occurring event or previous condition that has increased in severity or frequency after the Informed Consent Form is signed. AE includes serious as well as non-serious AEs. Serious Adverse Event (SAE) is any AE that results in any of the following: death; life-threatening condition; inpatient hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization; persistent or significant disability or incapacity; congenital anomaly or birth defect; or other important medical event. Treatment-emergent adverse events are defined as adverse events that were reported or worsened on or after start of study drug through the Follow-up Visit (28 days after last dose of study drug) or premature discontinuation.
