Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The Number of Subjects With a Clinical Remission (Crohn's Disease Activity Index [CDAI] < 150) at Week 4 [ Time Frame: 4 Weeks ]
    CDAI is used to quantify the symptoms of patients with Crohn's Disease. A score below 150 indicates remission and a score above 450 indicates severe disease. Comparison of the number of subjects with a clinical remission (CDAI < 150) in the adalimumab 160 mg (Week 0)/ 80 mg (Week 2) and adalimumab 80 mg (Week 0)/ 40 mg (Week 2) groups at Week 4.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical Remission (CDAI < 150) at Week 2 [ Time Frame: Week 2 ]
    Number of subjects in each treatment group in clinical remission (CDAI < 150) in Full Analysis Set (FAS) using non-responder Imputation (NRI) at Week 2.

  2. Clinical Response (CR-70 and CR-100) in Period A [ Time Frame: Weeks 2 and Week 4 ]
    The number of subjects in each treatment group with a clinical response 70 (CDAI decrease of >=70 compared to Baseline) and 100 (CDAI decrease of >=100 compared to Baseline) at Week 2 and Week 4.

  3. Clinical Response (CR-70 and CR-100) in Period B [ Time Frame: Week 6 and Week 8 ]
    The Number of subjects in each treatment group with a CR-70 (CDAI decrease of >= 70 compared to Baseline) and 100 (CDAI decrease of >= 100 compared to Baseline) in subjects who were non-responders at Week 4 at Week 6 and Week 8.

  4. Clinical Remission (CDAI <150) at Week 6 and Week 8 [ Time Frame: Week 6 and Week 8 ]
    The number of subjects with clinical remission (CDAI < 150) in the subjects who were non-responders at Week 4 calculated with non-responder imputation (NRI) at Week 6 and Week 8
