Inclusion Criteria

Male or female patients who have completed the treatment period without premature discontinuation in the previous BI 655130 trial and are willing and able to continue treatment in the current trial
Women of childbearing potential must be ready and able to use highly effective methods of birth control per ICH M3 (R2) that result in a low failure rate of less than 1% per year when used consistently and correctly. A list of contraception methods meeting these criteria is provided in Section [](telnet:// as well as in the patient information. Note: A woman is considered of childbearing potential, i.e. fertile, following menarche and until becoming postmenopausal unless permanently sterile. Permanent sterilisation methods include hysterectomy, bilateral salpingectomy and bilateral oophorectomy. Tubal ligation is not a method of permanent sterilization. A postmenopausal state is defined as no menses for 12 months without an alternative medical cause
Signed and dated written informed consent and assent for the current trial 1368-0025, in accordance with ICH-GCP and local legislation prior to admission to the current trial

Exclusion Criteria

Treatment with any restricted medication, or any drugs considered by the investigator likely to interfere with the safe conduct of the study since the last visit of the previous BI 655130 trial and during the screening period for the current trial
Severe, progressive, or uncontrolled hepatic disease, defined as >3- fold Upper Limit of Normal (ULN) elevation in AST or ALT or alkaline phosphatase, or >2- fold ULN elevation in total bilirubin
Patients with congestive heart disease, as assessed by the investigator
Relevant chronic or acute infections including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or viral hepatitis. A patient can be re-screened if the patient was treated and is cured from acute infection
History of allergy/hypersensitivity to a systemically administered trial medication agent or its excipients
Any documented active or suspected malignancy at screening, except appropriately treated basal cell carcinoma of the skin, squamous cell carcinoma of the skin or in situ carcinoma of uterine cervix
Women who are pregnant, nursing, or who plan to become pregnant while in the trial. Women who stop nursing before the study drug administration do not need to be excluded from participating; they should refrain from breastfeeding up to 16 weeks after the study drug administration
Major surgery (major according to the investigator's assessment) performed since the last visit of previous BI 655130 trial or planned during the current trial, e.g. hip replacement, aneurysm removal, stomach ligation), as assessed by the investigator
Evidence of a current or previous disease, medical condition (including chronic alcohol or drug abuse or any condition) other than GPP, surgical procedure, psychiatric or social problems, medical examination finding (including vital signs and electrocardiogram [ECG]), or laboratory value at the screening outside the reference range that in the opinion of the investigator is clinically significant and would make the study participant unreliable to adhere to the protocol, comply with all study visits/procedures or to complete the trial, compromise the safety of the patient or compromise the quality of the data
Further exclusion criteria apply
Patients with a confirmed active infection with SARS-CoV-2 (as confirmed by PCR test). A patient may be enrolled once recovered from SARS-CoV-2 infection according to the investigator's assessment
