Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Area Under the Plasma Drug Concentration-time Curve From Time 0 to Infinity (AUC) [ Time Frame: After 12 and 24 hours, on day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, after week 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Area Under the Plasma Drug Concentration-time Curve From Time 0 to the Last Quantifiable Point (AUC(0-t)) [ Time Frame: After 12 and 24 hours, on day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, after week 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Maximum Plasma Concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: After 12 and 24 hours, on day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, after week 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

  • Apparent Total Body Clearance (CL/F) [ Time Frame: After 12 and 24 hours, on day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, after week 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Apparent Volume of Distribution (Vz/F) [ Time Frame: After 12 and 24 hours, on day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, after week 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of Subjects With Anti-certolizumab Pegol Antibody Plasma Level >2.4 Units/mL [ Time Frame: After 12 and 24 hours, on day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, after week 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Injection Pain Assessment on a Visual Analog Scale (VAS) Per Formulation and Per Time Point as Well as Change From Baseline (=Immediately After Injection) at One Hour After Injection [ Time Frame: Immediately after injection and 1 hour after injection ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
