Brief Summary:
This Phase IIa study is a 16-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study aiming at evaluating the safety and the efficacy of ABX464 given once a day (o.d) at 50 mg in subjects with moderate to severe active Crohn's Disease who have inadequate response, loss of response, or intolerance to prior amino-salicylates, immunosuppressant treatment, biologics, and/or corticosteroid treatment, and followed by a 4 weeks period of follow-up after the last study drug intake.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Crohn Disease Drug: ABX464 Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This Phase 2a study is a 16-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study aiming at evaluating the safety and the efficacy of ABX464 given once a day (o.d) at 50 mg in subjects with moderate to severe active Crohn's Disease who have inadequate response, loss of response, or intolerance to prior amino-salicylates, immunosuppressant treatment, biologics, and/or corticosteroid treatment, and followed by a 4 weeks period of follow-up after the last study drug intake.

Eligible patients will be randomized according to a 2/1 ratio in two different groups of treatment : ABX464 50mg OR placebo.

After the treatment phase at week 16, all randomized patients willing to continue with the study treatment will have the possibility to enter a separate open-label study. In that case, patients will stop their participation after week 16, otherwise they will go through the 4 weeks follow-up period and the end of study visit will take place on week 20.

  8. Evaluation of the effect of ABX464 on the histopathology of the Crohn's disease [ Time Frame: from screening, at week 16 ]
    Change from screening in the histopathology pattern of colon biopsies

  9. Proportion of patients with both clinical response and endoscopic response [ Time Frame: from screening/baseline, at week 8 and week 16 ]
    Proportion of patients with both a decrease of ≥100-point in Crohn's Disease Activity Index from baseline AND an endoscopic response defined as a decrease of at least 50% in the Simple Endoscopic Score for Crohn's Disease by treatment group

  10. Evaluation of the effect of ABX464 50mg on C-reactive protein levels and fecal calprotectin at week 8 and week 16 versus placebo; [ Time Frame: from baseline, at week 8 and week 16 ]
    Relative change to baseline in C-reactive protein levels and fecal calprotectin by treatment group

  11. Evaluation of the effect of ABX464 50mg on patients' quality of life measured by Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire [ Time Frame: from baseline, at week 8 and week 16 ]
    Scores and changes in the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire. This questionnaire has been validated and consists in 32 items to describe 4 different types of symptoms/manifestations related to: digestive symptoms, systemic symptoms, emotional disorders, social function. Patients evaluate their quality of life with a 7-point Likert type answering system. The global score (from 32 to 224) is obtained by the sum of each individual item score.

  12. Evaluation of treatment-emergent serious adverse events [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 16 weeks ]
    Incidence of treatment-emergent serious adverse events;

  13. Evaluation of adverse events leading to investigational product discontinuation [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 16 weeks ]
