Full Study Name

Combined Phase III, Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Studies Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of Filgotinib in the Induction and Maintenance of Remission in Subjects with Moderately to Severely Active Crohn's Disease (IRB no. 48546)


This study focuses on individuals diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, an inflammatory disease of the gastrointestinal tract (digestive tract). The purpose of the study is to determine whether an investigational drug called filgotinib is effective and safe for the treatment of moderate to severe Crohn’s disease. Researchers will compare different doses of filgotinib to a placebo (inactive substance) to learn which is more effective; participants will be randomly assigned to a study group. Biomarker testing will also be conducted. Biological markers (biomarkers) are substances in the body that can offer clues as to how the drug is affecting the body and a disease.
