Study Design

  • A target outcome that the study’s protocol aims to evaluate - things like: the occurrence of a disease, a symptom, sign, or lab abnormality, among others.

    Endpoint Classification

    Safety Study

  • The general design that shows how the medical interventions will be assigned to the participants, e.g., whether all patients will receive the same drug, or if different groups receive two or more different treatments in a particular order.

    Intervention Model

    Single Group Assignment

  • The general design that describes the strategy for identifying and following up with participants during observational studies.


    Open Label

  • This is the single main reason for carrying out the clinical trial. Reasons can include: treatment, prevention, diagnostic advances, supportive care, screening, or health services research, among others.

      1. Completion of period 2 in 1311.6 with a clinical response (drop in Crohn's Disease Activity Index from baseline by >/=100) but no remission (Crohn's Disease Activity Index < 150) at Visit E1; or
      2. Completion of period 3 in 1311.6 with a clinical response (drop in Crohn's Disease Activity Index from baseline by >/=100) and/or remission (Crohn's Disease Activity Index < 150) at Visit E5; or
      3. Completion of period 2 or 3 in 1311.6 per protocol with a clinical response or remission before initiation of 1311.20/M15989 may roll-over either directly if that response/remission is maintained or through an open-label i.v. re-induction phase if they have lost their previous response/remission.
