  10. Incidence of adverse events (AE) [ Time Frame: From screening up to day 20 (+/-1) ]
    An AE is any untoward medical occurrence in a subject or trial subject that is administered a drug or biologic (medicinal product) or that is using a medical device. The event does not necessarily have a causal relationship with that treatment or usage

  11. Incidence of serious adverse events (SAE) [ Time Frame: From screening up to day 20 (+/-1) ]

    A Serious Adverse Event (SAE) is any untoward medical occurrence that at any dose:

    • Results in death
    • Is life-threatening
    • Requires in patient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization
    • Is a congenital anomaly or birth defect
    • Is as infection that requires treatment parenteral antibiotics
    • Other important medical events which based on medical or scientific judgement may jeopardize the patients, or may require medical or surgical intervention to prevent any of the above.
