Conquering Diseases

A Follow On Study for People with Crohn’s Disease who Joined Earlier Studies of SHP647.


Seeking patients with moderate to severe Crohn’s Disease. This study tests two amounts (doses) of a drug by monthly injection compared with a fake injection (placebo).


Participants of this study will get monthly injections with either 25mg or 75mg of the study drug or a placebo (fake injection) over 13 months. You do not choose or know what dose, if any, you receive. Any side effects and benefits will be noted by patient report and through tests like blood draws, physical exam by the study doctor and examination of the colon by endoscopy. During the study you may choose to join a further follow on study or not.

What we're hoping for

To learn if the study drug, SHP647, works to treat moderate to severe Crohn’s Disease and is safe for the patient compared with no treatment (placebo).
