      Trial Summary

      The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the effect of RO7049665 on time to relapse following forced corticosteroid (CCS) tapering as measured by the hazard ratio between RO7049665 7.5 milligrams (mg) and placebo arm.

      • No signs of liver inflammation on a liver biopsy taken no more than 12 months prior to randomization
      • Participants with AIH who have previously not attempted (or not attempted in the last 3 years, if this is the local practice) to taper CCSs to 0 mg/day
      • Body mass index within the range of 18-35 kilograms per meter square (kg/m^2)

Breast cancer within the past 10 years
      • Significant uncontrolled comorbidity, such as cardiac, pulmonary, renal, hepatic, endocrine, or gastrointestinal disorders
      • Any condition or disease detected during the medical interview/physical examination that would render the participant unsuitable for the study, place the participant at undue risk, or interfere with the ability of the participant to complete the study in the opinion of the Investigator
