Taking part in this study may or may not help to treat your warm autoimmune hemolytic anemia (wAIHA). Your health could improve, stay the same, or get worse. However, the data we get from you during this study may help study doctors and researchers learn more about the study drug and whether or not it provides benefit to adults with wAIHA, and this may help future patients with wAIHA.
All drugs have some risks, which may include things that could make you feel unwell, uncomfortable, or harm you. Your health will be closely monitored during the entire study. It is very important to tell the study doctor if you notice any changes in your health or if anything is bothering you.
The main study (Part A or Part B) lasts about 6 months (24 weeks). You may have the option to continue taking the active study drug at the end of your participation in Part A or Part B by enrolling in Part C, an open-label extension (OLE) study. The OLE lasts 1 year.
If you do not wish to enroll in the OLE, you will return to the study clinic for a safety follow up visit 12 weeks after your Week 24 visit.
Taking part in this study will not cost you anything. You will not be charged for the study drug or any of the tests that are part of the study. The sponsor will not pay for doctor visits or other treatments or tests that are not part of this study.
Prepaid travel arrangements and expense reimbursements are available. Expense reimbursements may include meals, mileage, tolls, parking, and other study-related travel expenses.
Being in the study is completely voluntary. If you decide to join and then change your mind, you can leave the study at any time.
If you leave the study early or if you stop taking the study drug early and decide to leave the study, the study doctor will ask you to complete one more visit, which may include a final health exam and lab tests, for your own safety.
