Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Enrollment was conducted at 58 clinical sites worldwide.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
Of 508 enrolled subjects, 303 met entry criteria. 42 subjects discontinued before randomization due to study termination. Of 261 randomized subjects, 10 subjects discontinued before receiving treatment (7 study termination, 2 withdrawal by subject, 1 withdrawal by caregiver). Number of subjects who received treatment (IVIG,10% or placebo) = 251.

  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
The primary and secondary outcome measures were originally planned to be assessed at 18 months. However, as the study was terminated early, an analysis was completed at 9 months instead, in a subset of subjects who had received 9 months of treatment.
