An Open-label Extension Trial of HZNP-HZN-825-301 in Adult Participants With Diffuse Cutaneous Systemic Sclerosis (Diffuse Cutaneous SSc)

Study Purpose

Primary Objectives: 1. The primary efficacy objective is to assess the efficacy of 52 weeks of open-label treatment with HZN-825 in participants with diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis, as measured by change from both baselines in forced vital capacity percent (FVC %) predicted. 2. The primary safety objective is to examine the safety and tolerability of 52 weeks of open-label treatment with HZN-825, inclusive of, but not limited to, adverse events (AEs), serious AEs (SAEs) and the adverse event of special interest (AESI), from Day 1 to 4 weeks after last dose.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.

An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.

Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
