  • Percentage of Subjects With at Least One Adverse Event (AE) During the Duration of the Study C87088 (up to 272 Weeks) [ Time Frame: From study start to the end of the Safety Follow-up Period (up to 272 weeks) ]
    An AE is defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a subject or clinical investigation subject administered a pharmaceutical product and which does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment.
  • Percentage of Subjects With at Least One Serious Adverse Event (SAE) During the Duration of the Study C87088 (up to 272 Weeks) [ Time Frame: From study start to the end of the Safety Follow-up Period (up to 272 weeks) ]
    An SAE is defined as any untoward medical occurrence that occurs at any dose which results in death, is life threatening, requires hospitalization, results in persistent/significant disability/incapacity, is an infection that requires parenteral antibiotics, is a congenital anomaly/birth defect, or is an important medical event.
Safety of the long term therapy with certolizumab. All summaries of continuous safety variables will be presented at scheduled time points. Data to be analyzed will be adverse event data, laboratory data, vital signs and urinalysis data. [ Time Frame: 50 weeks ]

  • Percentage of Subjects Achieving Harvey Bradshaw Index (HBI) Remission (HBI ≤ 4) at Study Completion Visit (Week 262) [ Time Frame: Week 262 ]
    HBI remission is defined as total HBI score of 4 points or less. HBI score consists of clinical parameters of general well-being (0 to 4), abdominal pain (0 to 3), number of liquid stools per day, abdominal mass (0 to 3), and complications (8 items, score 1 per item) lower scores indicating better well being. The first three parameters are scored for the previous day.
  • Percentage of Subjects Achieving Inflamatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (IBDQ) Remission (IBDQ ≥ 170) at Study Completion Visit (Week 262) [ Time Frame: Week 262 ]
    IBDQ remission is defined as having a total IBDQ score of 170 points or greater. IBDQ score consists of 32 questions eaching having a score of 1 to 7. Overall scores range from 32 to 224.
  • Plasma Concentration of Certolizumab Pegol After 1 Year (Week 52) [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]
    Plasma samples for determination of Certolizumab Pegol were taken prior to Certolizumab Pegol administration.
  • Percentage of Subjects With Positive Anti-CZP Anti-body Status at Any Time From Week 0 of the Feeder Study C87085 to the Study Completion Visit in C87088 [ Time Frame: From Week 0 of study C87085 [NCT00552058] to Study Completion Visit (Week 262) of C87088 (up to 268 weeks) ]
    Subjects are counted as antibody positive to Certolizumab Pegol if they have at least one positive result from Week 0 in the previous study C87085 [NCT00552058] to the Last Visit in this study. A positive result is defined as Anti-CZP antibody levels > 2.4 units/mL.
The absolute and the change from baseline for the HBI, CDAI and IBDQ scores will be summarized over time. [ Time Frame: 50 weeks ]
