presence of active tuberculosis (tb), general infections, heart failure, or
- participants with evidence of active or latent infection with mycobacterium
tuberculosis (tb) or participants with this history who have not completed a generally
accepted full course of treatment before baseline are excluded. all other participants

- participants with a significant concurrent medical condition at the time of screening
or baseline, including, but not limited to, the following
1. any major illness/condition or evidence of an unstable clinical condition (eg,
renal, hepatic, hematologic, gi [except disease under study], endocrine,
cardiovascular, pulmonary, immunologic [eg, felty's syndrome], or local active
infection/infectious illness) that, in the investigator's judgment will
substantially increase the risk to the participant if he or she participates in
2. cancer or history of cancer or lymphoproliferative disease within the previous 5
years (other than resected cutaneous basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell
carcinoma, or carcinoma in situ of the uterine cervix that has been treated with
no evidence of recurrence).

angina pectoris) within 24 weeks before screening.
4. history of significant cerebrovascular disease within 24 weeks before screening.
- participants who have had significant trauma or major surgery within 4 weeks before
screening, or with any major elective surgery scheduled to occur during the study.
- participants with evidence of cirrhosis with or without decompensation (ie, esophageal
varices, hepatic encephalopathy, portal hypertension, ascites).

ribonucleic acid [hcvrna]).
note participants who are hcvab positive without evidence of hcvrna may be considered
eligible (spontaneous viral clearance or previously treated and cured [defined as no
evidence of hcvrna at least 12 weeks prior to baseline]).
- participants with any of the following abnormalities in hematology and/or serum
chemistry profiles during screening.
1. alanine aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase levels >= 3 x the upper
limit of normal (uln)
2. total bilirubin level >=1.5 × uln or >2.0 × uln if the participant has a known
documented history of gilbert's syndrome.
3. hemoglobin level <=80 grams per liter (g/l) (8.0 gram per deciliter [g/dl])
4. platelet count <=100 × 10^9 per liter (/l) (100,000 cells per cubic millimeter
[cells/mm^3]) or >=1000 × 10^9/l (1,000,000 cells/mm^3)
5. white blood cell count <=3.5 × 10^9/l (3500 cells/mm^3)
6. absolute neutrophil count <2 × 10^9/l (2000 cells/mm3)
7. serum creatinine level >1.5 x uln or estimated glomerular filtration rate <30
milliliter per minute per 1.73 square meter (ml/min/1.73m^2) based on the
abbreviated modification of diet in renal disease study equation.
note if platelet count is <150,000 cells/mm^3, a further evaluation should be
performed to rule out cirrhosis, unless another etiology has already been
- participants with known human immunodeficiency virus (hiv) infection based on
documented history with positive serological test or positive hiv serologic test at
screening, tested at the site's local laboratory in accordance with country
requirements, or tested at the central laboratory.
note a documented negative hiv test within 6 months of screening is acceptable and does
not need to be repeated.
- participants who have, or who have a history of (within 2 years before screening),
serious psychiatric disease, alcohol dependency, or substance/drug abuse of any kind
including abuse of medicinal marijuana (cannabis).
- participants with any other severe acute or chronic medical or psychiatric condition
or laboratory or electrocardiogram (ecg) abnormality that may increase the risk
associated with study participation or investigational product administration or may
interfere with the interpretation of study results and, in the judgment of the
investigator, would make the participant inappropriate for entry into this study.
- female participants who are planning to become pregnant during the study period.
- participants who do not agree to postpone donation of any organ or tissue, including
male participants who are planning to bank or donate sperm and female participants who
are planning to harvest or donate eggs, for the duration of the study and through 16
weeks after last dose of investigational product.

I have always been someone that loves to volunteer and help the local community. I have participated in food drives, given back to the local animal shelter and volunteered at my local ambulance corp. Volunteers are apart of our everyday life, but they seem to be somewhat easily forgotten about. Think about it. You don’t often think about an EMT or volunteer firefighter...
