15. Must have completed 24 weeks of treatment during the Core Period and tolerated AG-348

16. The treating Investigator agrees that there is a potential for clinical benefit to
   continued treatment and recommends participation in the Extension Period and the
   Medical Monitor approves

Exclusion criteria

   4. Bone marrow or stem cell transplant

   5. Clinically symptomatic cholelithiasis or cholecystitis

   6. Currently enrolled in any other investigational trial. Participation in the PK
   Deficiency Natural History Study (NCT02053480) is permitted

   7. Exposure to any investigational drug, device or procedure within 28 days prior to
   screening or during trial participation

   8. Concurrent medical condition such as poorly controlled hypertension, heart failure,
   active infection, frequent post-splenectomy sepsis, Hepatitis B or C, Human
   Immunodeficiency Virus type 1 (HIV1) or Human Immunodeficiency Virus type 2 (HIV2)
   infection, poorly controlled diabetes mellitus, history of primary malignancy with the
   exception of curatively treated nonmelanomatous skin cancer, cervical cancer of breast
   cancer in situ

   9. Major surgery in the last 6 months

10. Psychiatric disorder that could compromise the ability of the patient to cooperate
   with the study

11. Serum bilirubin higher to the upper limit of normal attributable to factors other than
   hemolysis or Gilbert's Syndrome

12. Use of restricted products known to strongly inhibit cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4
   metabolism within 5 days prior to Prior Day 1 dosing, or to strongly induce cytochrome
   P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) metabolism within 28 days prior to Day 1 dosing, or to strongly
   inhibit P-glycoprotein transporter within 5 days prior to Day 1 dosing, or digoxin
   within 5 days prior to Day 1 dosing.

13. Heart-rate corrected QT interval - Fridericia's method (QTcF) interval ˃ 450 ms in
   male, QTcF > 470 ms in female, with the exception of patients with a left Bundle
   Branch Block

14. Cardiac arrhythmias that are clinically significant or treated with drugs that are
   substrates of CYP3A4

15. Allergy to sulfonamides if characterized by acute hemolytic anemia, anaphylaxis, rash
   of erythema multiforme type or Stevens-Johnson Syndrome

16. Any other medical or psychological condition deemed by the Investigator to be likely
   to interfere with a patient's ability to participate in the study

17. Patients will not be permitted to enter the Extension Period if: The patient
   experienced AEs during the Core Period that are considered by the treating
   Investigator or the Sponsor's designated Medical Monitor to pose a significant safety
   risk to the patient if treatment were to be extended
