General information about the trial


Main objective of the trial 
The main objective of this study was to evaluate the clinical efficacy of D9421C 9 mg once daily compared to Mesalazine 1 g three times a day to patients with mild to moderate active Crohn's disease affecting ileum, ileocecal region and/or ascending colon as defined by a score of 180400 on the Crohn's Disease Activity Index (CDAI) by assessment of the remission after 8week treatment defined by a CDAI score of ≤ 150.


Protection of trial subjects 
If patients had any AE at the end of treatment, the AEs were followed by Investeigators until the investigators judged it was unnecessary to follow the AE.

End point title 
Proportion of patients with remission at Week 8  
End point description 
For the primary efficacy variable “Remission after 8 weeks of treatment”, Crohn’s Disease Activity Index CDAI scores was used to determine the patient’s response. Remission for this study is defined as a CDAI score of ≤150. A patient who drops out without any remission before week 8 was considered as a nonresponder (no remission) for this analysis. A patient who drops out before Week 8, but was in remission at the time of dropout, was considered in remission after dropout in this analysis.

Notes [1]  A 2sided 90% CI for the observed difference in the remission rates between the D9421C 9mg group and the Mesalazine 3 g group was calculated using the NewcombeWilson score method without continuity correction. Noninferiority was concluded if the lower limit of the 90% CI was higher than –10% in FAS Population.

End point title 
Change in CDAI scores from baseline to Week 2  
End point description 
Crohn’s Disease Activity Index (CDAI) score is calculated based on the data collected in the diary card. The patients is asked to fill the following items in the diary card (from the morning in preceding day to the morning in current day). (1) Number of liquid or very soft stools (2) Abdominal pain rating (none, mild, moderate, severe) (3) General wellbeing (generally well, slightly under par, poor, very poor, terrible) (4) Body temperature (if a patient feels fever) (5) Intake of loperamide or other opiates for diarrhoea. The data for the calculation of CDAI score in diary card is then transcribed by the investigator(s) into the eCRFs at each clinical visit. The higher total CDAI score indicates severe condition and total CDAI score 150 less or equal is evaluated as a remission.

The Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (IBDQ) is a standard measure of HRQL in Crohn's disease patients (Guyatt G et al 1989). The validated Japanese version of the IBDQ was used in this study (Hashimoto H et al 2003). The IBDQ contains 32 questions; each with seven possible answers ranging from 1 to 7, where 7 is the most favourable. Ten questions are related to bowel symptoms, five to systemic symptoms, twelve to emotional function, and five to social function. The corresponding answers will be added to form four subscores and a total score: bowel function score (10 – 70), systemic symptom score (5 – 35), emotional function score (12 – 84), social function score (5 – 35) and the total score (32 – 224), with higher scores indicating more favorable outcome.
