Update on ustekinumab for the treatment of Crohn's disease. 
Despite the success of antitumor necrosis factor (TNF) therapy in Crohn's
disease, there remains a need for biologic therapy that targets other immune
pathways of disease... This article reviews the clinical efficacy and safety data of
ustekinumab in Crohn's disease in anticipation of the final results of the phase
III development program in moderate to severe Crohn's disease.

Clinical Trials Related to Stelara (Ustekinumab)
A Study to Assess the Effect of Ustekinumab (Stelara�) and Etanercept (Enbrel�) in Participants With Moderate to Severe Psoriasis (MK-0000-206) [Completed]
This is a two-part study. The purpose of the pilot study (Part 1) is to optimize the
acquisition, handling and shipping procedure for skin biopsies obtained from participants
with plaque psoriasis. No treatment will be administered. Part 2 will include 2 cohorts. In
Cohort 1, the effects of 16 weeks of treatment with either ustekinumab or etanercept on
biomarkers in lesional skin in participants with moderate to severe psoriasis will be
evaluated. In Cohort 2, biomarkers of lesional skin from participants with moderate to
severe psoriasis who are not treated with biologic therapy will be evaluated over 16 weeks.
The primary hypothesis is that treatment with ustekinumab reduces messenger RNA (mRNA)
expression of genes in the interleukin 12 (IL-12) pathway that are modulated by interferon
A Pharmacokinetic Study of Single-Dose Intravenous Ustekinumab Delivered in 2 Different Liquid in Vial Formulations [Completed]
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the pharmacokinetic (PK) (blood levels)
comparability of 2 different formulations of ustekinumab, 90 milligram per milliliter
(mg/mL) liquid in vial (LIV) and 5 mg/mL LIV, following a single intravenous administration
of 6 milligram per kilogram (mg/kg) ustekinumab, diluted in saline, in healthy participants.
A Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Ustekinumab Induction and Maintenance Therapy in Participants With Moderately to Severely Active Ulcerative Colitis [Not yet recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ustekinumab as
intravenous (IV: into the vein) infusion in induction study in participants with moderately
to severely active Ulcerative Colitis (UC) and as subcutaneous (SC) administration in
maintenance study in participants with moderately to severely active Ulcerative Colitis (UC)
who have demonstrated a clinical response to Induction treatment with IV ustekinumab.
A Study of the Safety and Efficacy of Ustekinumab in Adolescent Patients With Psoriasis (CADMUS) [Completed]
This is a study of the safety and efficacy of ustekinumab (CNTO 1275) in adolescent patients
with moderate to severe psoriasis.
Tacrolimus, Sirolimus and Ustekinumab vs. Tacrolimus and Sirolimus for the Prevention of Acute Graft-Versus-Host Disease [Active, not recruiting]
To determine whether treatment with ustekinumab will alter the ratio of Treg/total CD4+
cells in peripheral blood at day 30 post-hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT).
