Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with treatment-emergent adverse events (AEs) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The primary objective of this study was to assess the long-term safety of QGE031 in adult Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria (CSU) patients who completed the core study CQGE031C2201 using the following evaluations: number of participants with AEs of non-serious and serious adverse events including any events of special interest.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with sustained remission [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

    The secondary objective of this study was to assess the long-term efficacy of QGE031 in adult CSU patients who completed the CQGE031C2201 study using the following evaluations:

    Sustained remission defined as maintaining UAS7 ≤ 6 over 48 weeks post-treatment follow up epoch among the participants achieving remission at the end of treatment epoch.
