Full Study Name

Takeda - Vedolizumab Phase IIb Extension Study in Pediatric Patients With Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn's Disease (IRB no. 48104)


This study focuses on patients who have previously participated in the MLN0002-2003 study (A Phase II, Randomized, Double-Blind, Dose-Ranging Study to Determine the Pharmacokinetics, Safety and Tolerability of Vedolizumab IV in Pediatric Subjects With Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn's Disease). Researchers will evaluate the long-term safety of a drug called vedolizumab in children who have ulcerative colitis (UC) or Crohn's disease (CD). The study also aims to determine whether vedolizumab may help UC and CD symptoms, hospitalizations and quality of life in children, as well as how the drug is processed by the body in children. Additionally, participants will be asked to provide samples to help identify and confirm biomarkers. Biomarkers are biological or chemical "markers" that can be found in blood, stool, tissue, and other body fluids that may be a sign of a condition or disease.

The study is designed to test the investigational use of vedolizumab, which blocks the cells causing inflammation in the gut. Vedolizumab has only been tested in children who participated in the MLN0002-2003 research study.
