- Number of Subjects With a Reduction in the Disease Activity Index of >3, or Clinical Remission. [ Time Frame: day 56 ]
This Index is a measure of ulcerative colitis severity. The index assesses four variables, which include stool frequency, severity of bleeding, colonic mucosal appearance, and the physician's overall assessment of disease activity.
Each variable is scored from 0-3 so that the total index score ranges from 0-12; 0-2: remission; 3-6: mild; 7-10: moderate; >10: severe UC.
