The purpose of this multicenter, open-label study is to collect data on the occurrence of important clinical safety events resulting from chronic vedolizumab (MLN0002) administration.
A Phase 3, Open-label Study to Determine the Long-term Safety and Efficacy of Vedolizumab (MLN0002) in Subjects With Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's Disease
The drug being tested in this study is called vedolizumab. Vedolizumab is being tested to treat people who have ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease. This study will determine the safety profile of long-term vedolizumab treatment.
The study enrolled 2243 patients. Participants who received either placebo or vedolizumab 300 mg IV infusion every 4 or 8 weeks in previous vedolizumab studies received:
• Vedolizumab 300 mg
All participants received vedolizumab intravenous infusion every 4 weeks for up to 46 months.
This multicenter trial is being conducted worldwide. The overall time to participate in this study was up to March 2016 until vedolizumab was available in the country in which the participant resided, or until participant withdrawal, whichever came first. Participants made multiple visits to the clinic up to 16 weeks after receiving their last dose of vedolizumab and were being followed up for 2-years during which a safety questionnaire was administered by telephone for follow-up assessments.
Previous treatment in Study C13004 (NCT00619489), Study C13006 (NCT00783718), Study C13007 (NCT00783692), or Study C13011 (NCT01224171) that, in the opinion of the investigator, was well tolerated OR b. Moderate to severe Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis which has not been previously treated with vedolizumab (MLN0002)
May be receiving a therapeutic dose of conventional therapies for Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis as defined by the protocol
