  • Subject has had active cancer within 5 years including solid tumors and hematological malignancies (except basal cell and in situ squamous cell carcinomas of the skin or cervical dysplasia/cancer that have been excised and resolved) or colonic dysplasia that has not been completely removed.

Exclusions Related to Medications:

  • Subject has received any of the following therapies during the Induction Study:

    • immunomodulatory biologic agents;
    • investigational agents;
    • apheresis.
  • Subject has current or planned treatment with immunomodulatory agents (eg, azathioprine, 6-MP, or methotrexate) during the Maintenance Study.
  • Subject has chronic nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) use (note: occasional use of NSAIDs and acetaminophen [eg, headache, arthritis, myalgias, or menstrual cramps] and aspirin up to 325 mg/day is permitted).

  • Subject has confirmed aspartate aminotransferase (AST) or alanine aminotransferase (ALT) > 5 times the ULN
  • Subject has a forced expiratory volume at 1 second (FEV1) or forced vital capacity (FVC) < 50% of predicted values prior to randomization.
  • Subject has confirmed absolute lymphocyte count (ALC) < 200 cells/μL
