Brief Summary:

The purpose of this extension study is to establish efficacy and safety of ligelizumab. This will be assessed in adult and adolescent chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) patients who have completed a preceding ligelizumab study and have relapsed, following treatment in these preceding studies, despite standard of care H1-antihistamine (H1-AH) treatment. In a subset of subjects, the safety and efficacy of ligelizumab monotherapy will be assessed.

This study will also fulfill the Novartis commitment to provide post-trial access to patients who have completed studies CQGE031C2302, CGQE031C2303, CQGE031C2202 or CQGE031C1301

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The proportion of subjects with well-controlled disease (UAS7 ≤ 6) at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]

    The Urticaria Activity Score (UAS) is the sum of the Hive Severity Score (HSS) and the Itch Severity Score (ISS).

    The HSS, defined by number of hives (wheals), will be recorded by the subject twice daily in their eDiary, on a scale of 0 (none) to 3. A weekly score (HSS7) is derived by adding up the average daily scores of the 7 preceding days. The possible range of the weekly score is therefore 0 - 21.

    The severity of the itch will be recorded by the subject twice daily in their eDiary, on a scale of 0 (none) to 3 (intense/severe). A weekly score (ISS7) is derived by adding up the average daily scores of the 7 preceding days. The possible range of the weekly score is therefore 0-21 (maximum itch).

    The UAS7 is the sum of the HSS7 score and the ISS7 score. The possible range of the weekly UAS7 score is 0 - 42 (highest activity).



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Complete control of chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    Assessed as the proportion of subjects with completely controlled disease (UAS7 =0) at Week 12

  2. A reduction from extension study baseline in the UAS7 at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    Assessed as absolute change from extension study baseline in the UAS7 at Week 12

  3. A reduction from extension study baseline in the ISS7 at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    Assessed as absolute change from extension study baseline in the ISS7 (weekly itch severity score) at Week 12

  4. A reduction from extension study baseline in the HSS7 at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    Assessed as absolute change from extension study baseline in the HSS7 (weekly hives severity score) at Week 12

  5. Achieving an angioedema-free period at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    Assessed as cumulative number of weeks that subjects achieve weekly angioedema activity score (AAS7) = 0 between extension study baseline and Week 12

  6. Achieving Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) = 0-1 at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    Assessed as percentage of subjects achieving DLQI = 0-1 at Week 12

  7. Efficacy of ligelizumab in the treatment of CSU, 12 weeks after starting self-administration [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    Assessed as the proportion of subjects with well-controlled disease (UAS7 ≤ 6), 12 weeks after starting self-administration

  8. Safety and tolerability of ligelizumab 120 mg q4w in all subjects who self-administer [ Time Frame: from Week 24 to Week 104 ]
    Occurence of Adverse Events for patients who self-administer
