to participating in this study and in accordance with the treating physician

- Subject expects to receive CZP until at least 35 days prior to expected delivery (date
of injection counted as Day 1)

Additional criteria to be confirmed prior to first sample from infant at Visit 2

- Subject delivers a live born infant(s) at or near term (=34 weeks gestation )

- Subject received CZP within 35 days before delivery (date of injection counted as Day

- Subject has not received contraindicated medication

Exclusion Criteria:

- Subject has participated in a study of an investigational medicinal product (IMP) or
medical device within the previous 30 days or 5 half-lives (whichever is longer) prior
to Screening or is currently participating in another study of an IMP or medical
device - unless the study is UCB UP0016 [NCT02154425] or a registry study

- Subject has any obstetrical or psychiatric condition, or she or her infant(s) has any
medical condition that, in the opinion of the Investigator, could jeopardize or would
compromise the subject's ability to participate in this study or the outcome of the

- Subject has history of chronic alcohol abuse or drug abuse during pregnancy

- Subject has any pregnancy-related clinically significant abnormality noted on
obstetric ultrasound, or other imaging assessment, or the subject has significant
laboratory abnormalities during her pregnancy, as judged by the Investigator

- Subject is taking or has taken any medication with strong positive evidence of a human
fetal risk of teratogenicity (e.g., methotrexate or leflunomide) during pregnancy

insufficiency such as intrauterine growth restriction, severe maternal hypertensive
disorders of pregnancy, or abruption

- Subject has a positive or indeterminate QuantiFERON®-TB GOLD In Tube test at
Screening. In case of indeterminate result, a retest is allowed if time permits; 2
results of indeterminate require exclusion of the subject
