The CONNEX program includes three separate studies
Depending on which study they join, participants in CONNEX will be in a study for approximately 8 months (35 weeks). Participants will also be asked to attend up to 15 study clinic visits.
CONNEX will compare the effects of an investigational drug with an inactive drug (a placebo).
Placebo is a tablet that looks like an investigational drug but contains no active ingredients. Participants in CONNEX will be randomly assigned to receive either the investigational drug or placebo.
