The Change in Injection Site Pain Score Using an 11-point Visual Numeric Scale [ Time Frame: Difference of injection site pain score (Week 6 - Week 2) ]
Injection site pain evaluation questionnaire will be rated on an 11-point numeric rating scale ranging from 0 (no pain) to 10 (pain as bad as it could be) at two-time points post-injection (immediately post-injection and between 15 to 30 minutes post-injection) at Weeks 0, 2, 4, and 6.
Secondary Outcome Measures :
Overall Impression of SC Delivery Administration of SB5 Using Questionnaire [ Time Frame: at Week 2 and at Week 6 ]
Objective: To evaluate whether overall impressions of SC administrations at Week 2 and Week 6 were comparable between the SC administrations of SB5 via the Pen and via the PFS.
Subject Preference of SC Delivery Administration of SB5 Using Questionnaire [ Time Frame: at Week 6 ]
