Qualified participants can expect the following during the 34-week study:

  • Attend study clinic visits regularly to receive assessments
  • Take the study drug or placebo (a “dummy” study drug) daily for 26 weeks

Potential benefits for qualified participants:

  • Study-related laboratory tests and no-cost health examinations
