  • Must have moderately to severely active Crohn's disease at time of screening (CDAI score >/= 220 points and less than or equal to 475 points)
  • Must be receiving less than or equal to 40 mg prednisone (or equivalent) daily at time of screening if treated with corticosteroids between completing their previous sargramostim study and entry into this study and be able to taper to less than or equal to 7.5 mg daily within one treatment cycle
  • Subjects who participated in Protocol 307501
  • Must have active Crohn's disease (CDAI score > 150 points and less than or equal to 450 points) if completely withdrawn from CS use
  • Must be receiving less than or equal to 40 mg prednisone (or equivalent) daily at time of screening, be able to taper to less than or equal to 7.5 mg daily within 2 treatment cycles, and have a CDAI score less than or equal to 450 points if not completely withdrawn from CS use
  • Have a negative serum pregnancy test within 2 weeks prior to receiving initial dose of sargramostim in female subjects of child-bearing potential (optional - may be waived by the investigator if the subject has had no interruption in contraception method since participation in the previous study)
  • Agree to use of an adequate method of contraception throughout the study period for sexually-active males and females of childbearing potential
  • Able to self-inject sargramostim or have a designee who can do so
  • Able to comply with protocol requirements
  • Have a negative stool exam if subject received a course of antibiotics since participation in the previous study

Exclusion Criteria:
