The purpose of study is to test the effect of an experimental medication GED-0301(mongersen) and evaluate its safety in patients (≥ 12 years of age) with active Crohn's disease. The study will test GED-0301 compare to placebo for 12 weeks. The study treatment is blinded which means that patients and the study doctor will not know which treatment has been assigned. Patients in this study will be allowed treatment with stable doses of oral aminosalicylates, oral corticosteroids, immunosupressants and antibiotics for the treatment of Crohn's disease. Adolescent patients will also be allowed treatment with stable doses of exclusive enteral nutrition and growth hormone. All patients who complete the study will have the option to enter a long term active treatment study.
