Further study details as provided by Celgene Corporation:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline of Smad7 (Mothers Against Decapentaplegic homolog 7) expression in the intestinal mucosa [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 12 ]
    Smad7 is a protein important in cell interactions and stands for "Mothers against decapentaplegic homolog 7" protein

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) expression of inflammatory cytokines [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 12 ]
    Change from baseline in the mRNA expression of inflammatory cytokines such as, but not limited to, interleukin (IL)-10, IL-25, chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 20 (CCL20) and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) in the intestinal mucosa at Week 12, from biopsy samples during ileocolonoscopy

  • The proportion of subjects achieving clinical remission, defined as a Crohn's Disease Activity Index (CDAI) score < 150, at Weeks 4, 8, and 12 [ Time Frame: Up to week 12 ]
    The CDAI is a measure of disease activity in patients with Crohn's Disease.

  • Change from baseline in the Simple Endoscopic Score for Crohn's Disease (SES-CD) at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 12 ]
    The SES-CD is a measure that indicates mucosal inflammation in the end part of the ileum (or small intestine) and colon (or large intestine) in patients with Crohn's Disease

  • Number of Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to Week 56 ]
    The evaluation of safety and tolerability of GED-0301, assessed by the type, frequency and severity of adverse events, and its relationship to investigational product (IP), discontinuation due to adverse events, and clinically significant changes in electrocardiograms (ECGs), vital signs, and/or laboratory findings

Estimated Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: April 2016
Estimated Study Completion Date: February 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date: May 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: GED-0301 Induction (160mg) followed by intermittent 160 mg
GED-0301 160 mg by mouth (PO) daily (QD) for 12 weeks, followed by alternating GED 0301 160 mg QD for 4 weeks with 4 week rest, up to Week 52
Drug: GED-0301
During Induction period patient will receive mongersen 160 mg daily for 12 weeks. This study also offers patients the option to continue with maintenance treatment at the discretion of the Investigator, beginning after the Week 12 Visit with alternating rest periods for 4 weeks, followed by mongersen (GED-0301) 160 mg QD for 4 weeks, up through the Week 52 Visit during the Maintenance Period
Other Name: Mongersen

Detailed Description:

Subjects will be screened to provide 20 enrolled subjects who complete 12 weeks of mongersen (GED-0301) 160 mg daily (QD) treatment as open-label therapy.

The study will consist of 4 periods:

  • Screening Period - up to 4 weeks
  • Induction Period - 12 weeks (Week 0 Visit through Week 12 Visit) Maintenance Period - 88 weeks (after Week 12 Visit through Week
  • 100 Visit)
  • Follow-up Period - 4 weeks (ie, no Investigational Product (IP) taken Subjects who prematurely discontinue treatment from this study prior to Week 100 will have an Early Termination Visit and also enter the 4-week Follow-up Period.

At the Screening Visit, all subjects who meet the entrance criteria will be eligible to enter the study. The number of subjects with previous exposure to Tumor Necrosis Factor-Alpha (TNF-α) blockers is targeted to be approximately 40% (ie, approximately86 subjects)


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or female ≥ 18 years of age.
  • Active Crohn's disease (CD) disease as determined by the Crohn's Disease Activity Index (CDAI) score and the Simple Endoscopic Score for Crohn's Disease (SES-CD)
  • Must meet a determined average minimum number of daily stools or rating of abdominal pain over a 7 day period
  • Subject must have failed or experienced intolerance to at least one of the following: aminosalicylates; budesonide; systemic corticosteroids; immunosuppressants (eg, azathiopurine, 6-mercaptopurine, or methotrexate); or biologics for the treatment of CD.
  • Subject must use protocol approved contraception

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of ulcerative colitis (UC), indeterminate colitis, ischemic colitis, microscopic colitis, radiation colitis or diverticular disease-associated colitis
  • Local manifestations of Crohn's Disease (CD) such as symptomatic strictures, abscesses, short bowel syndrome; or other disease complications for which surgery might be indicated or could confound the evaluation of efficacy
  • Intestinal resection within 6 months or any intra-abdominal surgery within 3 months prior to the Screening Visit
  • Ileostomy or a colostomy
  • Prior treatment with more than 2 TNF-α blockers (eg, infliximab or adalimumab).
  • Prior treatment with any integrin antagonists (eg, natalizumab or vedolizumab).
  • Subject is pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Subject has received prior treatment with mongersen (GED-0301), or participation in a clinical study involving mongersen (GED-0301).
