  Purpose
An open-label multi-center single-cohort study to assess the safety and efficacy of certolizumab pegol for the treatment of signs and symptoms of active Crohn's disease in Greek patients who have previously responded to infliximab but who no longer have a sustained response or became intolerant to infliximab

Condition Intervention Phase
Crohn's Disease Biological: Certolizumab pegol Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Certolizumab Pegol in the Treatment of Adult Greek Patients With Moderate to Severe Crohn's Disease Who Have Been Previously Treated Successfully With Infliximab But Who Have Subsequently Lost Response or Developed Intolerance to Infliximab

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Patients With at Least a 100-point Decrease From Baseline in Crohn's Disease Activity Index (CDAI) Score at Week 6 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 6 ]
    The CDAI score is used to quantify the symptoms of subjects with Crohn's disease. A score of 150 or below indicates remission and a score above 450 indicates extremely severe disease. A decrease in CDAI over time indicates improvement in disease activity.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Patients With at Least a 100-point Decrease From Baseline in Crohn's Disease Activity Index (CDAI) Score at Weeks 1, and 14 or Withdrawal [ Time Frame: Baseline to Weeks 1, and 14 or Withdrawal ]
    The CDAI score is used to quantify the symptoms of subjects with Crohn's disease. A score of 150 or below indicates remission and a score above 450 indicates extremely severe disease. A decrease in CDAI over time indicates improvement in disease activity.

  • Number of Patients With at Least a 70-point Decrease From Baseline in Crohn's Disease Activity Index (CDAI) Score at Weeks 1, 6 and 14 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Weeks 1, 6 and 14 ]
    The CDAI score is used to quantify the symptoms of subjects with Crohn's disease. A score of 150 or below indicates remission and a score above 450 indicates extremely severe disease. A decrease in CDAI over time indicates improvement in disease activity.

  • Number of Patients With a Crohn's Disease Activity Index (CDAI) Score ≤150 (Remission) at Weeks 1, 6 and 14 or Withdrawal [ Time Frame: Weeks 1, 6 and 14 or Withdrawal ]
    The CDAI score is used to quantify the symptoms of subjects with Crohn's disease. A score of 150 or below indicates remission and a score above 450 indicates extremely severe disease. A decrease in CDAI over time indicates improvement in disease activity.

  • Crohn's Disease Activity Index (CDAI) Score at Each of Weeks 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 14 [ Time Frame: Weeks 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 14 ]
    The CDAI score is used to quantify the symptoms of subjects with Crohn's disease. A score of 150 or below indicates remission and a score above 450 indicates extremely severe disease. A decrease in CDAI over time indicates improvement in disease activity.

  • Change From Baseline in Crohn's Disease Activity Index (CDAI) Score at Each of Weeks 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 14 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Weeks 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 14 ]
    The CDAI score is used to quantify the symptoms of subjects with Crohn's disease. A score of 150 or below indicates remission and a score above 450 indicates extremely severe disease. A decrease in CDAI over time indicates improvement in disease activity.

  • C-reactive Protein Level at Each of Weeks 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 14 [ Time Frame: Weeks 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 14 ]
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (IBDQ) Total Score at Baseline, and Weeks 6 and 14 [ Time Frame: Baseline, and Weeks 6 and 14 ]
    The IBDQ Total Score is the sum of 32 responses, each ranging from 0 to 7, thus the Total Score ranges from 0 to 224; a higher score indicating a better quality of life.

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (IBDQ) Bowel Symptoms Domain Score at Baseline, and Weeks 6 and 14 [ Time Frame: Baseline, and Weeks 6 and 14 ]
    The IBDQ Bowel Symptoms Domain Score is the sum of 8 responses, each ranging from 0 to 7, thus the score ranges from 0 to 56; a higher score indicating a better quality of life.

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (IBDQ) Systemic Symptoms Domain Score at Baseline, and Weeks 6 and 14 [ Time Frame: Baseline, and Weeks 6 and 14 ]
    The IBDQ Systemic Symptoms Domain Score is the sum of 8 responses, each ranging from 0 to 7, thus the score ranges from 0 to 56; a higher score indicating a better quality of life.

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (IBDQ) Emotional Function Domain Score at Baseline, and Weeks 6 and 14 [ Time Frame: Baseline, and Weeks 6 and 14 ]
    The IBDQ Emotional Function Domain Score is the sum of 8 responses, each ranging from 0 to 7, thus the score ranges from 0 to 56; a higher score indicating a better quality of life.

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (IBDQ) Social Function Domain Score at Baseline, and Weeks 6 and 14 [ Time Frame: Baseline, and Weeks 6 and 14 ]
    The IBDQ Social Function Domain Score is the sum of 8 responses, each ranging from 0 to 7, thus the score ranges from 0 to 56; a higher score indicating a better quality of life.
