AGEAge at screeningAge at screening. Computed from Form 2 birth date.
*Age at screening may differ from the age stratum to which a participant was randomized, due to participants requesting a correction to their Form 2 birth date after randomization. Once a participant was randomized to a specific age stratum, they remained in that stratum despite corrections to their birth date. Therefore, the "Age stratum at randomization or enrollment" variable may differ from the age reflected in this variable.
