A Study to Assess the Effectiveness and Safety of Golimumab in Pediatric Participants With Moderately-to-Severely Active Ulcerative Colitis


  • Study type

  • Study phase

  • Study IDs

  • Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:

    • Observational study — observes people and measures outcomes without affecting results.
    • Interventional study (clinical trial) — studies new tests, treatments, drugs, surgical procedures or devices.
    • Medical records research — uses historical information collected from medical records of large groups of people to study how diseases progress and which treatments and surgeries work best.
  • During the early phases (phases 1 and 2), researchers assess safety, side effects, optimal dosages and risks/benefits. In the later phase (phase 3), researchers study whether the treatment works better than the current standard therapy. They also compare the safety of the new treatment with that of current treatments. Phase 3 trials include large numbers of people to make sure that the result is valid. There are also less common very early (phase 0) and later (phase 4) phases. Phase 0 trials are small trials that help researchers decide if a new agent should be tested in a phase 1 trial. Phase 4 trials look at long-term safety and effectiveness, after a new treatment has been approved and is on the market.

About this study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate effectiveness of golimumab in inducing clinical remission as assessed by the Mayo score, in pediatric participants with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC). In addition, the safety profile of golimumab, in pediatric participants with moderately to severely active UC will be assessed.

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. If you need assistance understanding the eligibility criteria, please contact the study team.

Inclusion Criteria: 

  • Must either be currently receiving treatment with, or have a history of having failed to respond to, or have a medical contraindication to at least 1 of the following therapies:
    • Oral or intravenous corticosteroids, 6-mercaptopurine, methotrexate or azathioprine OR must either have or have had a history of corticosteroid dependency (that is an inability to successfully taper corticosteroids without a return of the symptoms of ulcerative colitis [UC]) OR required more than 3 courses of corticosteroids in the past year. 
  • Moderately to severely active UC (as defined by baseline Mayo score of 6 through 12 [endoscopy {sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy} sub score assigned by local endoscopist], inclusive), including a (sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy) sub score greater than or equal to (>=2).
  • If receiving parenteral or enteral nutrition, must have been on a stable regimen for at least 2 weeks prior to the first administration of study intervention at Week 0.
  • No history of latent or active tuberculosis prior to screening.
  • Acceptable evidence of immunity to measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella.

Exclusion Criteria: 

  • History of liver or renal insufficiency; significant cardiac, vascular, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, endocrine, neurologic, hematologic, rheumatologic, psychiatric (including suicidality), or metabolic disturbances. 
  • History of malignancy or macrophage activation syndrome (MAS) or hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH).
  • Have UC limited to the rectum only or to <20 percent (%) of the colon.
  • Presence of a stoma.
  • Presence or history of a fistula.
  • Contraindications to the use of golimumab or infliximab or anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF-alpha) therapy per local prescribing information.
