Experimental: Pharmacokinetics Sampling
This study will include pregnant women who have decided to continue treatment with commercial certolizumab pegol (CZP) in accordance with their treating physician prior to participating in the study. Study participants will be responsible for obtaining and administering commercially available CZP under the care of their physician and according to the locally approved product label.
From all study participants blood samples will be drawn for pharmacokinetics during the study.
Drug: Pharmacokinetics of certolizumab pegol
The collection of blood samples for pharmacokinetics (PK) is considered interventional. Blood samples will be drawn at enrollment, predose every 4 weeks (Q4W), postdose every 8 weeks (Q8W) and postpartum predose and postdose.
Study participants will be responsible for obtaining and administering commercially available approved dosing regimens of certolizumab pegol (CZP) as prescribed by each study participant's own physician.
Other Name: PK
- Predose and postdose plasma certolizumab pegol (CZP) concentrations in women during pregnancy, relative to postpartum [ Time Frame: From Enrollment to End of Post-Partum Period (Duration of pregnancy + 13 weeks) ]Mean differences with 95% confidence interval (CI) of CZP plasma concentrations between samples taken during pregnancy and baseline (postpartum samples) will be estimated within a mixed effect model using contrasts.
- Plasma levels of anti-certolizumab pegol (CZP) antibodies throughout the study period [ Time Frame: From Enrollment to Safety Follow-up (Duration of pregnancy + 18 weeks) ]Antibodies to CZP will be evaluated in plasma samples collected from all participants throughout the study.
- Adverse events from time of informed consent through Safety Follow-up (SFU) [ Time Frame: From Screening to Safety Follow-up (Duration of pregnancy + 18 weeks) ]An adverse event (AE) is any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical study participant, temporally associated with the use of study medication, whether or not considered related to the study medication.
- Pregnancy outcome [ Time Frame: From Enrollment to Delivery (Duration of pregnancy, up to 40 weeks) ]Pregnancy outcomes will be collected via a written notification by the investigator and recorded in the Pregnancy Outcome Form. Pregnancies will be determined to end in delivery-live birth, delivery-still birth, Spontaneous abortion, or Therapeutic abortion.
