SAEs include any untoward medical occurrence that results in death, are life threatening, requires hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization, results in disability or incapacity or are a congenital anomaly or birth defect in the offspring of a study participant. Lack of efficacy was to be reported as an AE when it was associated with an SAE.
