What will I be asked to do?

This study is designed to be conducted in two steps: Step 1 is now open for participation and will include 24 patients aged 18-45 who will be randomised 1:1:1 to treatment with 450 μg IMCY-0098 or 1350 μg IMCY-0098 or placebo, at 2-weekly intervals, for 6 treatments.

Step 1 patients will undergo 10 study visits, including screening and randomisation visits, over a period of approximately 52 weeks.

The main outcome of step 1 will be to identify the number of treatments and the dose of IMCY-0098 to be used in the second step of study which will recruit at a later stage and include 60 participants in two sub-groups (patients aged 12-17 and those aged 18-45).
