Brief Summary:

Primary Objective:

Part 1:

Part 2:

  • Evaluate the safety and tolerability of GZ/SAR402671 in adult GD3 patients.
  • Evaluate the change in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) central nervous system (CNS) biomarkers from adult GD3 patients receiving GZ/SAR402671.

Secondary Objectives:

  • Evaluate the pharmacokinetics of GZ/SAR402671 in adult GD3 patients.
  • Explore the efficacy of GZ/SAR402671 in infiltrative lung disease (IDL) in adult GD3 patients.
  • Explore the efficacy of GZ/SAR402671 in systemic disease in adult GD3 patients.
  • Explore the efficacy of GZ/SAR402671 in neurological function and on exploratory CSF biomarkers in adult GD3 patients.
