Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical Remission [ Time Frame: Change from baseline, at 8 and 54 weeks ]

    The proportions of patients with steroid-free, clinical and endoscopic remission, with no rescue therapies.

    It will be measured as Mayo index score ≤ 2 points with any single variable >1.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical response [ Time Frame: at week 8 and 54 from baseline ]
    It will be measured as a decrease in Mayo index score of at least 3 points and at least 30% decrease of the rectal bleeding variable of at least 1 point or with an absolute value of 0 or 1.

  2. Biological response [ Time Frame: at week 8 and 54 from baseline ]
  3. Rate of adverse events [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  4. Rate of serious adverse events [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  5. Proportion of patients with clinical recurrence [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  6. Time to clinical relapse [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  7. Risk of hospitalization [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

    The risk of hospitalization will be measured by SAE criteria:

    • Death
    • Life-threatening
    • Hospitalization (initial or prolonged)
    • Disability or Permanent Damage
    • Congenital Anomaly/Birth Defect
    • Required Intervention to Prevent Permanent Impairment or Damage (Devices)
    • Other Serious (Important Medical Events)

  8. Time to corticodependency [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  9. Number of participants with surgery events [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    assessed by disease activity index (DAI) and simple activity index

  10. Proportion of patients with corticodependency criteria [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Relapse during dose reduction of prednisolone or within 3 months after the discontinuation of steroid treatment.
