A Phase III Trial of HMPL-004 in Patients With Mild to Moderate Active Ulcerative Colitis
A placebo controlled study of two doses of HMPL-004 in patients with active mild to moderate ulcerative colitis (UC), with a modified Mayo Score 4-10 and an endoscopy subscore of 2-3, taking mesalamine (or equivalent) as a concomitant medication.
The objective is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of HMPL-004 with mesalamine (mesalamine treatment failures). Efficacy will be measured by a comparison of the proportion of patients in each treatment group attaining clinical remission at Week 8 as compared to placebo.

- The Efficacy of HMPL-004 in patients taking mesalamine as compared to placebo. [ Time Frame: After 8 weeks of treatment ]Patients will be evaluated for their change of disease activity after 8 weeks of treatment by means of a Modified Mayo Scoring system. Patients will be evaluated at week 8 for disease remission. For the current study, the definition of remission has been modified. The remission is defined as a total Mayo Score of < 2 points with no individual sub-score > 1 point AND rectal bleeding score = 0. For remission, the endoscopy will have no friability (meaning a score of 0 or 1). The endoscopy score has been modified such that any degree of friability will be scored as a 2 or greater. Safety will be assessed by the frequency, type and severity of Adverse Events during the 8 weeks of treatment for each dose of HMPL-004 used as compared to placebo.
