In order to do this, the drug UCB0599 has to be compared with a placebo – which looks like the study drug but contains no medicinally active ingredients.
Part 1: Screening – you will undergo tests to see whether you can take part; this involves 2 visits to the study site
Part 2: Treatment – if you qualify, you will have several visits to the study site and also have some home visits
Part 3: Follow-up – this will involve one last home visit to check on your health
Before you enter the study, you will receive more detailed information on what side effects of the study drug are already known from previous studies; you are encouraged to talk to your study doctor about any potential side effects.
Throughout the study, your health and well-being will be closely monitored. If you have any specific concerns or think you (or the person you care for) might be experiencing a side effect, you can talk to the study team at any time.
During a clinic visit, you will be seen in person by the study doctor and his or her team at the study site, who will perform the necessary assessments and test for that particular study visit.
Home visits enable the study team to continue monitoring your health and well-being while limiting the number of trips to the study site. A research nurse will visit your home to carry out the required tests and procedures. During the home visit, you will also speak to your study doctor and his or her team over video.
If you decide to participate in the Orchestra Study you will receive more information about the tests and procedures that are carried out during the site and home visits.

Clinical research studies can help advance the understanding of a disease. They are the most important way for researchers to find out if potential new treatments are well tolerated and effective.
