A Study of Ustekinumab Treatment in Children With Crohn's Disease

Study Purpose

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of ustekinumab in achieving clinical remission in pediatric participants (greater than or equal to [>=] 2 to less than [<] 18 years and weight >= 40 kilograms [kg] at baseline).

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

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

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.

Eligible Ages 2 Years - 25 Years
Gender All

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.


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


: Participants with Crohn's Disease (CD)

Participants with moderate-to-severe active CD enrolled in ImproveCareNow (ICN) pediatric Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) registry will be observed who are being treated with ustekinumab under real world setting and will be divided into 9 cohorts. Cohorts 1-6 for age group >=2 to <18 years (pediatric), cohorts 7-9 for young adults within age group >=18 to <26 years. Cohort 1: participants with moderate-severe CD and body weight >=40 kg, cohort 2: participants with moderate-severe CD and body weight <40 kg, cohort 3: all participants with moderate-severe CD, cohort 4: participants with active disease and body weight >=40 kg, cohort 5: participants with active disease and body weight <40 kg, cohort 6: all participants treated with ustekinumab, cohort 7: young adults with moderate-severe CD, cohort 8: young adults with active-disease; and cohort 9: all young adults treated with ustekinumab. Only data available per routine clinical practice will be collected within this study.


Drug: - Ustekinumab

No interventions will be administered as a part of this study. Participants will receive ustekinumab as per their routine clinical practice.
