A Study to Assess the Long-Term Safety of Ustekinumab Versus Other Biologics in Patients With Crohn's Disease

Study Purpose

The purpose of this study is to estimate and compare the incidence of overall malignancy, serious infection, and opportunistic infections between new users of ustekinumab and new users of other biologic therapies among adult participants with Crohn's disease (CD).

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

No
Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.


An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.


Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

More Inclusion & Exclusion Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

- Adult men and women with CD who are new users of ustekinumab or the comparator drugs during the study period - Participants must have at least 1 year of enrollment history with the DoD EHR database immediately prior to new use (that is, exposure index date) of ustekinumab or the comparator drugs

Exclusion Criteria:

- Participants below 18 years of age on the exposure index date - Participants who do not meet the definition for CD prior to or on the exposure index date - Participants with any records of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) diagnosis, organ or tissue transplant, or malignancy (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer [NMSC]) at any time prior to or on the exposure index date - Participants with a physician diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, or psoriatic arthritis within 12 months prior to or on the exposure index date - In the analysis of infection outcomes, participants diagnosed with the same infection of interest both within 60 days prior to or on the exposure index date and within 60 days after the exposure index date will be excluded

Trial Details

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.

NCT04372108
Phase

Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

Arms & Interventions

Arms

: Ustekinumab New User Cohort

Participants with crohn's disease (CD) with no prior exposure to ustekinumab, at least 1 year of enrollment records immediately prior to the new use will be required. The information will be sourced from the Department of Defense (DoD) Electronic Health Records (EHR) database in the United States (US).

: Other Biologics Comparator Cohort

Participants with CD with no prior exposure to the individual drugs (for example, infliximab, adalimumab, or vedolizumab) in question, at least 1 year of enrollment records immediately prior to the new use of the comparator biologic will be required. The information will be sourced from the Department of Defense (DoD) Electronic Health Records (EHR) database in the United States (US).

Interventions

Drug: - Ustekinumab

Participants who are new users of ustekunumab will be included in the cohort. No study treatment will be administered as a part of this study.

Drug: - Other Biologic Therapies

Participants who are new users of other biologic therapies (for examples for example, infliximab, adalimumab, or vedolizumab administered as per the prescription record) will be included in this cohort. No study treatment will be administered as a part of this study.
