Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the time from randomization to treatment failure over a 5 year period in subjects treated with celecoxib vs placebo. [ Time Frame: 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare colorectal polyp burden over 5 years for subjects treated with celecoxib versus subjects treated with placebo. [ Time Frame: 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To compare in the intent-to-treat population the time from randomization to treatment failure for subjects treated with celecoxib versus subjects treated with placebo [ Time Frame: 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To compare between subjects treated with celecoxib versus subjects treated with placebo the total number of colorectal polyps (>2 mm in size) detected over years 1-5 cumulatively. [ Time Frame: 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:

Per DMC recommendation, the study was terminated early (31Oct2013) due to low enrollment and low endpoint accumulation rate. No safety concerns were involved in the decision to terminate the study.


Ages Eligible for Study:   10 Years to 17 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age 10-17 years
  • Confirmed deleterious FAP genotype based on central genetic testing or personal history ot >2 colorectal adenomas and a parent with the diagnosis of FAP and either A, B or C below A: Non-attenuated FAP genotype B: Attenuated FAP genotype and a personal history of colorectal adenomas and a first degree relative with FAP C: No genotype identified with a personal history of > 2 adenomas and have a parent with FAP
  • Less than 30 polyps, which need to be removed to render the colon polyp-free before study drug can be given

Exclusion Criteria:
