Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Response Status With Response Defined as at Least 100 Point Decrease in Crohn's Disease Activity Score (CDAI Score) From Baseline in the Induction Phase [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 6 ]

    Response is defined as at least 100 point decrease in Crohn's Disease Activity Score (CDAI score) from baseline, otherwise there is a non-response.

    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.
