Brief Summary:
The primary objective is to determine the efficacy of rifaximin DR tablets vs. placebo for the induction of clinical remission and endoscopic response following 16 weeks of treatment in subjects presenting with active moderate Crohn's disease. A key secondary objective is to evaluate clinical and endoscopic remission following an additional 36 weeks of treatment.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Crohn's Disease Drug: Rifaximin DR Drug: Placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:

RECD3126 is a double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, multicenter, multiregional, 52-week study to assess the efficacy and safety of rifaximin DR tablets for the induction of clinical remission and endoscopic response at 16 weeks followed by clinical and endoscopic remission after 52 weeks of continuous therapy in subjects with active moderate Crohn's disease.

Subjects will be randomized in a 1:1 allocation to rifaximin or placebo at the beginning of the treatment period and will maintain treatment assignment throughout the duration of the study. Ileocolonoscopy will be performed on all subjects at baseline, between Weeks 16 and 17 (end of the Induction Phase), and following completion of the 36-week Long Term Treatment Phase (Week 52).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical symptom remission [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    First of the co-primary efficacy measures: Change from baseline in (1) number of liquid/very soft stools AND (2) abdominal pain rating.

  2. Endoscopic response [ Time Frame: Week 16 to Week 17 ]
    Second of the co-primary efficacy measures: Change from baseline in Simple Endoscopic Score for Crohn's Disease (SES-CD).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical symptom remission [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]
    First of the key co-secondary efficacy measures: Change from baseline in (1) number of liquid/very soft stools AND (2) abdominal pain rating at Week 52.

  2. Endoscopic remission [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]
    Second of the key co-secondary efficacy measures: Change from baseline in SES-CD at Week 52.
