Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Rate of induction of remission after 28 days of treatment (using the Partial Mayo Score and the Modified Baron Score), also an Endoscopic biopsy will be taken. [ Time Frame: Partial Mayo Score throughout entire study, biopsy at end of dosing period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
