Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Area Under the Plasma Drug Concentration-time Curve From Time 0 to Infinity (AUC) [ Time Frame: After 12 and 24 hours, on day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, after week 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 ]
  • Area Under the Plasma Drug Concentration-time Curve From Time 0 to the Last Quantifiable Point (AUC(0-t)) [ Time Frame: After 12 and 24 hours, on day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, after week 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 ]
  • Maximum Plasma Concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: After 12 and 24 hours, on day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, after week 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time Point Where Log-linear Elimination Phase Begins (TLIN) [ Time Frame: After 12 and 24 hours, on day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, after week 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 ]
    TLIN describes timepoint for start of elimination phase determined on the basis of a linear regression model of the log-transformed concentration data.

  • Lowest Quantifiable Concentration Time (LQCT) [ Time Frame: After 12 and 24 hours, on day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, after week 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 ]
  • Apparent Terminal Elimination Rate Constant (λz) [ Time Frame: After 12 and 24 hours, on day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, after week 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 ]
  • Apparent Terminal Elimination Half-life (t1/2) [ Time Frame: After 12 and 24 hours, on day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, after week 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 ]
  • Time Corresponding to Cmax (Tmax) [ Time Frame: After 12 and 24 hours, on day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, after week 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 ]
  • Apparent Total Body Clearance (CL/F) [ Time Frame: After 12 and 24 hours, on day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, after week 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 ]
  • Apparent Volume of Distribution (Vz/F) [ Time Frame: After 12 and 24 hours, on day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, after week 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 ]
  • Number of Subjects With Anti-certolizumab Pegol Antibody Plasma Level >2.4 Units/mL [ Time Frame: After 12 and 24 hours, on day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, after week 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 ]
  • Injection Pain Assessment on a Visual Analog Scale (VAS) Per Formulation and Per Time Point as Well as Change From Baseline (=Immediately After Injection) at One Hour After Injection [ Time Frame: Immediately after injection and 1 hour after injection ]
    Visual Analog Scale (VAS) ranges from 0 (no pain at all) to 100 mm (max. pain).

  • Injection Questionnaire Per Formulation and Per Time Point - Afraid of Needles [ Time Frame: Before and 24 hours post-dose ]
    Categorized answer ranges from not at all to extremely.
