This study will evaluate biomarkers that reflect changes in gut mucosal status during therapy with infliximab and determine whether changes in the levels of the selected biomarkers can be used to predict endoscopically assessed gut mucosal status changes.
||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
||An Open Label Study to Discover Biomarkers of Intestinal Mucosal Healing in Crohn's Disease (CD)
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Change from Baseline in the Crohn's Disease Endoscopic Index of Severity (CDEIS) Score at Week 6 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Change From Baseline in CDEIS Score at Week 22 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 22 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Change From Baseline in Serum High Sensitivity C-reactive Protein (hsCRP) at Week 6 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Change From Baseline in Serum hsCRP at Week 22 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 22 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Change From Baseline in Stool Calprotectin at Week 6 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Change From Baseline in Stool Calprotectin at Week 22 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 22 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Change From Baseline in Serum Lipocalin-2 at Week 6 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Change From Baseline in Serum Lipocalin-2 at Week 22 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 22 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Change From Baseline in Regenerating Islet-Derived 3-Alpha (REG3-A) at Week 6 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Change From Baseline in REG3-A at Week 22 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 22 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Concordance Correlation Coefficient for Comparison of Repeat Baseline Measurements of Biochemical Biomarkers [ Time Frame: Baseline Visit 1 (one week prior to dosing), Baseline Visit 2 (1-2 days prior to dosing) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Concordance Correlation Coefficient for Comparison Between Central Endoscopic Evaluation and Site Endoscopic Evaluation [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 6, Week 22 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
