Brief Summary:
The purpose of Part A is to determine whether sutimlimab administration results in a greater than or equal to (>=) 2 gram per deciliter (g/dL) increase in hemoglobin (Hgb) levels or increases Hgb to >= 12 g/dL and obviates the need for blood transfusion during treatment in participants with primary cold agglutinin disease (CAD) who have a recent history of blood transfusion.The purpose of Part B is to evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of sutimlimab in participants with CAD.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Sutimlimab
Participants will receive an intravenous (IV) infusion of sutimlimab. Participants who complete Part A per protocol through the end of treatment visit (Day 182) will participate in Part B, and continue to receive sutimlimab up to 1 year after last patient out (LPO) in Part A.
Drug: Sutimlimab
Sutimlimab will be administered as IV infusion.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Part A: Percentage of Participants With Response (R) [ Time Frame: Up to Week 26 ]
    A participant who meets all of the following criteria will be considered a responder: who did not receive a blood transfusion from Week 5 through Week 26 (end of treatment) and did not receive treatment for cold agglutinin disease (CAD) beyond what is permitted per protocol. Additionally the participant's hemoglobin (Hgb) level must meet either of the following criteria: Hgb level greater than or equal to (>=) 12 gram per deciliter (g/dL) at the treatment assessment endpoint, or Hgb increased >= 2 g/dL from baseline (defined as the last Hgb value before administration of the first dose of study drug) at treatment assessment endpoint.

  2. Part B: Number of Participants With Treatment-emergent Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious AEs (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Approximately 1 year ]
    An adverse event (AE) was any untoward medical occurrence in a participant who received study drug without regard to possibility of causal relationship.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Part A: Mean Change From Baseline in Bilirubin up to Week 26 [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 26 ]
    Mean change from baseline in bilirubin up to Week 26 will be assessed.

  2. Part A: Mean Change From Baseline in Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy (FACIT)-Fatigue Scale Score (Quality of Life) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 26 ]
    FACIT-Fatigue scale consists of 13 questions assessed using a 5 point scale (0=not at all; 1 = a little bit, 2 = somewhat, 3 = quite a bit and 4 = very much). Responses to each question are added to obtain a total score. The range of possible scores is 0-52, with higher score indicating more fatigue.

  3. Part A: Mean Change From Baseline in Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) up to Week 26 [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 26 ]
    Mean change from baseline in LDH up to Week 26 will be assessed.

  4. Part A: Number of Blood Transfusions After the First 5 Weeks of Study Drug Administration [ Time Frame: 5 Weeks ]
    Number of transfusions after the first 5 weeks of study drug administration will be assessed.

  5. Part A: Number of Blood Units Transfused After the First 5 Weeks of Study Drug Administration [ Time Frame: 5 Weeks ]
    Number of blood units transfused after the first 5 weeks of study drug administration will be assessed.

  6. Part A: Mean Change From Baseline in Hemoglobin (Hgb) Level up to Week 26 [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 26 ]
    Mean change from baseline in Hgb level up to Week 26 will be assessed.
