Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The proportion of subjects with a decline in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) from baseline at Week 104 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 104 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from baseline in eGFR at each assessment time point [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 104 ]
  2. Time to the first occurrence of an event in the composite endpoint: end-stage renal disease (ESRD), doubling of serum creatinine, renal death, or cardiovascular (CV) death [ Time Frame: up to approximately 104 weeks ]
  3. Change from baseline in urine albumin-to-creatinine ratio (UACR) at each assessment time point [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 104 ]
