Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Treatment with AVB-S6-500
Patients will receive AVB-S6-500 by intravenous infusion every 2 weeks for total of 6 doses.
Drug: AVB-S6-500
AVB-S6-500 is experimental drug

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: 14 weeks ]
    Measured by the number of patients with AEs

  2. The effect of AVB-S6-500 on change from baseline to End of Treatment in 24-hour urine protein excretion (UPE) in g/day. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  3. The effect of AVB-S6-500 on change from baseline to End of Treatment in 24-hour urine protein excretion (UPE) in g/day in the subset of patients with baseline high proteinuria. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  4. The effect of AVB-S6-500 on proportion of patients with urinary protein equivalent of < 1 g/24 hours at End of Treatment [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  5. The effect of AVB-S6-500 on proportion of patients who had at least a decrease of 0.5 g/day proteinuria from baseline to End of Treatment. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  6. The effect of AVB-S6-500 on change from baseline to End of Treatment in urine albumin/creatinine ratios (uACRs). [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  7. The effect of AVB-S6-500 on change from baseline to End of Treatment in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of Anti-drug Antibody (ADA) [ Time Frame: 14 weeks ]
    The number of participants with anti-AVB-S6-500 antibodies

  2. Titers of anti-AVB-S6-500 antibodies [ Time Frame: 14 weeks ]
  3. Apparent terminal half-life (t1/2) of AVB-S6-500 [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  4. Maximum Observed Plasma Concentration of AVB-S6-500 (Cmax) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  5. Area under time-concentration curve (AUC) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  6. Time of maximum observed AVB-S6-500 concentration (Tmax) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
