    Comparison of success rates of (∆CDEIS) defined by 25% and by 50% improvements in SES-CD vs CDAI defined response

    Change in Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (IBDQ) and Short Form 36 (SF-36)

  • Change in inflammatory markers [ Time Frame: Baseline through 52 weeks ]
    Changes from baseline in a serum markers of inflammation: C-reactive Protein (CRP) and fecal calprotectin

  • Safety [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
    Number of subjects with adverse events as a measure of safety and tolerability

Inclusion Criteria:
