Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The percentage of patients achieving clinical remission [ Time Frame: At the end of the 8 week treatment period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The primary efficacy endpoint is clinical remission at 8 weeks, defined as a Ulcerative Colitis Disease Activity Index score of <or= 1 with a score of 0 for both rectal bleeding and stool frequency, and >or= 1 point reduction from baseline in endoscopy score, without any sign of mucosal friability (a score of 0 for mucosal appearance.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The secondary efficacy endpoint is clinical improvement [ Time Frame: After 8 weeks treatment peirod ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The secondary efficacy enpoint is clinical improvement, defined as a drop in the Ulcerative Colitis Disease Activity Index score of >or= 3 points from baseline, including a reduction in bleeding if the baseline bleeding subscore is >or=2.

  • Safety evaluations [ Time Frame: Throughout the 8 week treatment period ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Safety will be assessed by evaluating adverse events (AEs), laboratory test results, urinalysis, plasma cortisol levels, physical examination findings and vital signs.
