Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
This study was conducted at a total of 44 investigative sites [United states (US)=33, Canada=4, and Europe=7], and 3 of the 33 US sites did not enroll any participants (each had 1 screen failure).

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
Of the 213 participants formally screened to participate in this study, 168 participants were treated. Five participants were randomized but not treated and 40 participants were screen failures.

Reporting Groups
