Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether low dose Asacol (27 mg/kg - 71 mg/kg) and

high dose Asacol (53 mg/kg - 118 mg/kg) are safe and effective when dosed as 400 mg

delayed-release tablets given twice daily for 26 weeks to children and adolescents for the maintenance of remission of ulcerative colitis.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Randomized, Double-blind, Parallel-group Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of Asacol (1.2 to 4.8g/Day) 400 mg Delayed-release Tablets Given Twice Daily for 26 Weeks to Children and Adolescents for the Maintenance of Remission of Ulcerative Colitis

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Control: Dose Comparison, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: proportion of patients who have maintained complete remission through Week 26 as determined by a Pediatric Ulcerative Colitis Activity Index (PUCAI) score < 10 during the entire study period

Secondary outcome: proportion of patients who have maintained complete remission through Week 26 using an endpoint similar to the PUCAI (but with the PUCAI 3-level Abdominal Pain question replaced by a 5-level Abdominal Pain question)

Eligibility

Minimum age: 5 Years. Maximum age: 17 Years. Gender(s): Both.

- have a body weight no less than 17 kg and no more than 90 kg

- have a history of at least 1 active episode or relapse in the last 12 months

- have taken a stable maintenance dose of oral mesalamine (or equivalent oral 5-ASA

dose) for at least 1 month prior to entry in the study. Stable is defined as the same dose for the last month.

- maintained complete remission, as defined, throughout the 30-day run-in phase.

Note: ONLY applies to those patients who complete the 6-week treatment in complete remission from Study 2007017 and immediately roll-over to the 30-day run-in phase

- are female patients who are pre-menarchal or have a negative urine pregnancy test

limited to cancer or significant organic or psychiatric disease on medical history or physical examination, that, in the judgment of the Investigator, contraindicate(s) administration of the study drug and/or any study procedures

- have a history or presence of any condition causing malabsorption or an effect on

gastrointestinal motility or history of extensive small bowel resection (greater than one half the length of the small intestine) causing short bowel syndrome

- any "condition" causing "malabsorption" or an effect on gastrointestinal "motility"

- have current renal disease, or a screening blood urea nitrogen (BUN) or creatinine

value that is > 1. 5 times the upper limit of the age appropriate normal

- have a documented history of or current hepatic disease, or liver function tests

(alanine transaminase [ALT], aspartate transaminase [AST], total bilirubin) that are > 2 times the upper limit of normal

- have a history of pancreatitis

- have undergone treatment with any oral, intravenous, intramuscular, or rectally

administered corticosteroids (including budesonide) within 30 days prior to the Screening visit

- have undergone treatment with any rectal mesalamine therapy within 30 days prior to

the screening visit

- have undergone treatment with immunomodulatory therapy including, but not limited to:

rosiglitazone, 6-mercaptopurine or azathioprine, cyclosporine, or methotrexate within 90 days prior to Screening visit

- have undergone treatment with biologic therapy including, but not limited to:

infliximab,adalimumab, certolizumab or other biologic treatment of ulcerative colitis within 90 days prior to Screening visit

- have undergone treatment with antibiotics (other than topical antibiotics) including

metronidazole within 7 days prior to the Screening visit

- have undergone treatment with aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs

NSAIDs) within 7 days prior to the Screening visit

- have undergone treatment with any antidiarrheals and/or antispasmodics within 30 days

of the Screening visit

- have a stool examination positive for Clostridium difficile (C. difficile), bacterial

pathogens, or ova and parasites. Note: Because normal gut flora may vary by geography, the Medical Monitor should be consulted before excluding a patient with a stool sample that is positive for C. difficile, bacterial pathogens or ova and parasites.
