ADAPT Adacolumn Pediatric Trial in Ulcerative Colitis
Children aged up to 18 years with moderately active Ulcerative Colitis (PUCAI:35-64) will receive one weekly Adacolumn® apheresis treatment over 5 consecutive weeks, followed by up to 3 optional Adacolumn® apheresis treatments over 3 consecutive weeks. Primary end point is PUCAI at Week 12.
The main part of the clinical investigation will be continued by a one year follow up for responders.
