Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants Achieving Clinical Disease Activity Index (CDAI) Clinical Remission at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    The CDAI is a measure of clinical response and remission. The CDAI includes 8 variables encompassing both patient-reported (symptoms, general well-being) and objective (medication usage, laboratory variables, presence of abdominal mass or complications, and weight) variables. For symptoms scores, patients keep track of daily symptoms on a diary card and the daily symptom scores are summed for the week. Each item in the CDAI is assigned a specific weight, and the weighted values of the items are totaled to produce the CDAI. Higher CDAI scores indicate greater disease activity, with a lower limit of 0 and no set upper limit: < 150 indicates remission, 150 - 219 indicates mildly active disease, 220 - 450 indicates moderately active disease, and > 450 indicates severely active disease. CDAI clinical remission is defined as CDAI < 150 at Week 12. Nonresponder imputation (NRI): missing values were counted as nonresponders.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants Achieving CDAI Clinical Response at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    The CDAI is a measure of clinical response and remission. The CDAI includes 8 variables encompassing both patient-reported (symptoms, general well-being) and objective (medication usage, laboratory variables, presence of abdominal mass or complications, and weight) variables. For symptoms scores, patients keep track of daily symptoms on a diary card and the daily symptom scores are summed for the week. Each item in the CDAI is assigned a specific weight, and the weighted values of the items are totaled to produce the CDAI. Higher CDAI scores indicate greater disease activity, with a lower limit of 0 and no set upper limit: < 150 indicates remission, 150 - 219 indicates mildly active disease, 220 - 450 indicates moderately active disease, and > 450 indicates severely active disease. CDAI clinical response is defined as either a CDAI < 150 or a CDAI reduction from Baseline of at least 100 points at Week 12. NRI: missing values were counted as nonresponders.

  2. Percentage of Participants Achieving Crohn's Disease Endoscopic Index of Severity (CDEIS) Remission at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    CDEIS is an index for determining the severity of Crohn's disease with endoscopic localization to ileum and colon. CDEIS considers 4 parameters (deep ulcerations, superficial ulcerations, surface involved by disease, and surface involved by ulcerations), each one evaluated in 5 pre-defined segments of the colon (ileum, ascending colon, transverse colon, descending colon and sigmoid loop, and rectum). The results of the individual segments of the colon are divided by the number of segments investigated; the presence of stenosis increases the score at the end of the computation. CDEIS remission is defined as a CDEIS ≤ 4 (or, for patients with initial isolated ileitis, a CDEIS ≤ 2) at Week 12. NRI: missing values were counted as nonresponders.

  3. Percentage of Participants Achieving CDEIS Response at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    CDEIS is an index for determining the severity of Crohn's disease with endoscopic localization to ileum and colon. CDEIS considers 4 parameters (deep ulcerations, superficial ulcerations, surface involved by disease, and surface involved by ulcerations), each one evaluated in 5 pre-defined segments of the colon (ileum, ascending colon, transverse colon, descending colon and sigmoid loop, and rectum). The results of the individual segments of the colon are divided by the number of segments investigated; the presence of stenosis increases the score at the end of the computation. CDEIS response is defined as defined as ≥ 50% reduction of CDEIS from Baseline to Week 12. NRI: missing values were counted as nonresponders.

  4. Percentage of Participants Achieving Mucosal Healing at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    Mucosal healing was defined as the absence of mucosal ulceration, i.e., a CDEIS ulceration sub-score (deep ulceration, superficial ulceration, ulcerated stenosis) of 0 at Week 12. NRI: missing values were counted as nonresponders.

  5. Percentage of Participants Achieving Deep Remission at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    Deep remission is defined as clinical remission (CDAI < 150) AND CDEIS remission (CDEIS ≤ 4, or ≤ 2 in participants with initial isolated ileitis) at Week 12. NRI: missing values were counted as nonresponders.

  4. Presence of mucosal ulcers in at least one segment of the ileum or colon and a Crohn's Disease Endoscopic Index of Severity (CDEIS) score ≥ 7 (for patients with isolated ileitis, ≥4), as assessed by ileocolonoscopy and confirmed by central independent reviewer before randomization
  5. Patients who are naive or experienced to 1 or more TNF antagonists (infliximab, adalimumab, or certolizumab pegol) at a dose approved for CD. TNF antagonist experienced patients may have stopped anti-TNF treatment due to primary or secondary non-responsiveness, intolerance or for other reasons.
  6. Female patients:

Medically accepted methods of contraception are: ethinyl estradiol containing contraceptives, diaphragm with spermicide substance, and intra-uterine-device, or
