The purpose of this study is to evaluate efficacy 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.

Official Title

A Phase 3 Randomized, Open-Label Study to Assess the Efficacy, Safety, and Pharmacokinetics of Golimumab Treatment, a Human Anti-TNFα Monoclonal Antibody, Administered Subcutaneously in Pediatric Participants With Moderately to Severely Active Ulcerative Colitis


This is a multicenter study in pediatric participants aged 2 to 17 years with moderately to severely active UC, defined as a baseline Mayo score of 6 through 12, inclusive, with an endoscopy subscore of greater than or equal to (>=)2. This 54-week study will consist of a 6-week short-term phase and a 48-week long-term phase followed by a study extension (Week 54 to end of study). At Week 58, participants who are eligible will continue receiving golimumab in the study extension. The primary hypothesis is that golimumab is an effective therapy in pediatric UC relative to historical placebo control as assessed by clinical remission based on Mayo score. Safety will be monitored throughout the study.
