Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants in Clinical Response Through Week 54 [ Time Frame: Induction Baseline, Week 0 through Week 54 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Clinical response is defined as decrease from induction baseline in Mayo score by greater than or equal to (>=) 30 percent and >= 3, with either decrease from induction baseline in rectal bleeding subscore of >= 1 or rectal bleeding subscore of 0 or 1. Participants who lost clinical response prior to Week 54 were considered not to meet endpoint. Mayo score is sum of 4 subscores (ie, stool frequency, rectal bleeding, endoscopic findings, physician's global assessment); each rated on scale from 0 to 3, with higher scores indicating more severe disease. Total Mayo score value ranges from 0 to 12.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Clinical Remission at Both Week 30 and Week 54 [ Time Frame: Week 30 and Week 54 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Clinical remission is defined as a Mayo score of less than or equal to 2, with no individual sub-score greater than 1. The Mayo score is sum of 4 sub-scores (i.e., stool frequency, rectal bleeding, endoscopic findings, and physician's global assessment); each rated on a scale from 0 to 3, with higher scores indicating more severe disease. The total Mayo score value ranges from 0 to 12. The number of participants in clinical remission at both the weeks that is Week 30 as well as Week 54 will be reported.

  • Number of Participants With Mucosal Healing at Both Week 30 and Week 54 [ Time Frame: Week 30 and Week 54 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Mucosal healing is determined from the endoscopy sub-score of the Mayo score. Mucosal healing is defined as an endoscopy sub-score of 0 or 1. Higher score indicates higher severity of disease. Endoscopy sub-score ranges from 0 (normal or inactive disease) to 3 (severe disease; spontaneous bleeding and ulceration). The number of participants with mucosal healing at both the weeks that is Week 30 as well as Week 54 will be reported.

  • Number of Participants With Clinical Remission at Both Week 30 and 54 Among Participants With Clinical Remission at Week 0 of Maintenance Study [ Time Frame: Week 30 and Week 54 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Clinical remission is defined as a Mayo score of less than or equal to 2, with no individual sub-score greater than 1. The Mayo score is sum of 4 sub-scores (i.e., stool frequency, rectal bleeding, endoscopic findings, and physician's global assessment); each rated on a scale from 0 to 3, with higher scores indicating more severe disease. The total Mayo score value ranges from 0 to 12. The number of participants in clinical remission at both the weeks that is Week 30 as well as Week 54 will be reported.

  • Number of Participants With Clinical Remission at Week 54 and Not Receiving Concomitant Corticosteroids Among Participants on Corticosteroids at Week 0 of Maintenance Study [ Time Frame: Week 54 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Clinical remission is defined as a Mayo score of less than or equal to 2, with no individual sub-score greater than 1. The Mayo score is sum of 4 sub-scores (i.e., stool frequency, rectal bleeding, endoscopic findings, and physician's global assessment); each rated on a scale from 0 to 3, with higher scores indicating more severe disease. The total Mayo score value ranges from 0 to 12.

Detailed Description:

This was a Phase 3, multicenter (conducted in more than one center), placebo-controlled (an inactive substance that is compared with a drug to test whether the drug has a real effect in a clinical trial), double-blind (neither the Physician nor the participant know about the study medication), parallel-group (a medical research study comparing the response in 2 or more groups of participants receiving different interventions), randomized-withdrawal study. Participants who were in clinical response to golimumab at Week 6 in induction study C0524T16 (NCT00488774) or C0524T17 (NCT00487539) will be randomly assigned in a 1:1:1 ratio at Week 0 of this study to receive 1 of the following maintenance treatment regimens administered subcutaneously every 4 weeks through Week 52: placebo, golimumab 50 mg, or golimumab 100 mg. Participants who were in clinical response to placebo and participants who were not in clinical response to golimumab or placebo at Week 6 in induction study C0524T16 (NCT00488774) or C0524T17 (NCT00487539) will not be randomly assigned but will be eligible to be enrolled in the study (i.e., the nonrandomized group) and received the following treatment regimens: placebo, golimumab 100 mg and golimumab 100 mg. Dose adjustment will be done for participants who were in clinical response to golimumab or placebo during induction studies C0524T16 (NCT00488774) or C0524T17 (NCT00487539) but lose clinical response during maintenance study C0524T18 (NCT00488631). On completing this study, participant will have the opportunity to continue to receive study medication in a study extension that will last up to approximately 3 years. Efficacy will be primarily evaluated by assessing the clinical response using Mayo Score. Participants' safety will be monitored throughout the study.
