Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of subjects who responded at Week 8 per PMS and achieve clinical remission [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]
    Measured by Mayo score

  2. Proportion of subjects who achieve clinical remission [ Time Frame: Week 8 ]
    Measured by Partial Mayo Score (PMS)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of subjects who achieve mucosal healing [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]
    Measured by Mayo endoscopy subscore (defined as ≤ 1) in Week 8 responders per PMS

  2. Proportion of subjects in Pediatric Ulcerative Colitis Activity Index (PUCAI) remission [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]
    Measured by PUCAI remission (defined as < 10) in Week 8 responders per PMS
