Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Part A: Percentage of Participants With Response (R) [ Time Frame: Up to Week 26 ]
    A participant will be considered a responder if he or she did not receive a blood transfusion from Week 5 through Week 26 (EOT) and did not receive treatment for primary cold agglutinin disease (CAD) beyond what is permitted per protocol. Additionally, the participant's hemoglobin (Hgb) level must meet the following criterion: Hgb increase greater than or equal to (>=) 1.5 gram per deciliter (g/dL) from baseline (defined as the last Hgb value before administration of the first dose of study drug

  2. Part B: Number of Participants With Treatment-emergent Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious AEs (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Approximately 1 year from end of Week 26 of Part A ]
    An adverse event (AE) was any untoward medical occurrence in a participant who received study drug without regard to possibility of causal relationship.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Part A: Mean Change From Baseline in Hemoglobin (Hgb) Level up to Week 26 [ Time Frame: Baseline Up to Week 26 ]
    Mean change from baseline in hemoglobin (Hgb) level up to Week 26 will be assessed

  2. Part A: Mean Change From Baseline in Bilirubin up to Week 26 [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 26 ]
    Mean change from baseline in bilirubin up to Week 26 will be assessed.

  3. Part A: Mean Change From Baseline in Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy (FACIT)-Fatigue Scale Score (Quality of Life) [ Time Frame: Baseline Up to Week 26 ]
    FACIT-Fatigue scale consists of 13 questions assessed using a 5 point scale (0=not at all; 1 = a little bit, 2 = somewhat, 3 = quite a bit and 4 = very much). Responses to each question are added to obtain a total score. The range of possible scores is 0-52, with higher score indicating more fatigue.

  4. Part A: Mean Change From Baseline in Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) up to Week 26 [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 26 ]
    Mean change from baseline in LDH up to Week 26 will be assessed.

  5. Part A: Percentage of Participants With Solicited Symptomatic Anemia at End of Treatment (EOT) [ Time Frame: At Part A EOT (Day 182) ]
    Symptomatic anemia is defined as fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, palpitations, fast heart beat, light headedness, and/or chest pain.

  6. Part B: Mean Change From Week 27 in Hemoglobin (Hgb) Level [ Time Frame: From Week 27 (Part B baseline) up to Week 77 ]
    Mean change from week 27 (Part B baseline) in Hemoglobin (Hgb) level up to Week 77 will be assessed

  7. Part B: Mean Change From Week 27 in Bilirubin (total) [ Time Frame: From Week 27 (Part B baseline) up to Week 77 ]
    Mean change from week 27 (Part B baseline) in Bilirubin (total) level up to Week 77 will be assessed.

  8. Part B: Mean Change From Week 27 in Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy (FACIT)-Fatigue Scale Score (Quality of Life) [ Time Frame: From Week 27 (Part B baseline) up to Week 77 ]
    FACIT-Fatigue scale consists of 13 questions assessed using a 5 point scale (0=not at all; 1 = a little bit, 2 = somewhat, 3 = quite a bit and 4 = very much). Responses to each question are added to obtain a total score. The range of possible scores is 0-52, with higher score indicating more fatigue.

  9. Part B: Mean Change From Week 27 in five level EuroQol five dimensions questionnaire (EQ-5D-5L) [ Time Frame: From Week 27 (Part B baseline) up to Week 77 ]
    The EQ-5D descriptive system comprises 5 dimensions: mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort and anxiety/depression. Each dimension has a 5-level response: no problems, slight problems, moderate problems, severe problems, and extreme problems. A scale with score 0-100 is used to collect response on current health status. Higher the score better the health.

  10. Part B: Mean Change From Week 27 in 12-item short form survey (SF-12) [ Time Frame: From Week 27 (Part B baseline) up to Week 77 ]
    SF-12 health survey is a self-reported questionnaire to measure participant's profile of functional health and well-being. It includes 12 questions (Q).

  11. Part B: Patient's Global Impression of [Fatigue] Severity (PGIS) total score in different timepoints [ Time Frame: From Week 27 (Part B baseline) up to Week 77 ]
    PGIS is a 5-point response to the severity of the fatigue over the past weeks where 1 indicates No fatigue" to 5 as "very severe". The assessments will be performed every 3 months beginning after Week 27 up to Week 77.

  12. Part B: Patient's Global Impression of Change (PGIC) total score in different timepoints [ Time Frame: From Week 27 (Part B baseline) up to Week 77 ]
    PGIC is a 7-point response to the change of overall status of quality of life where 1 indicates "Very much improved" to 7 as "very much worse". The assessments will be performed every 3 months beginning after Week 27 up to Week 77.

  13. Part B: Mean Change From Week 27 in Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) level [ Time Frame: From Week 27 (Part B baseline) up to Week 77 ]
    Mean change from week 27 (Part B baseline) in LDH level up to Week 77 will be assessed

  14. Part B: Number of transfusions [ Time Frame: From Week 27 (Part B baseline) up to Week 77 ]
  15. Part B: Mean Change From Week 27 in Haptoglobin [ Time Frame: From Week 27 (Part B baseline) up to Week 77 ]
    Mean change from Week 27 (Part B baseline) in Haptoglobin up to Week 77 will be assessed
