Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate efficacy of golimumab in inducing clinical remission as assessed by the Mayo score, in pediatric participants with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC). In addition, the safety profile of golimumab, in pediatric participants with moderately to severely active UC will be assessed.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Colitis, Ulcerative Drug: Golimumab Drug: Infliximab Phase 3

Detailed Description:
This is a multicenter study in pediatric participants aged 2 to 17 years with moderately to severely active UC, defined as a baseline Mayo score of 6 through 12, inclusive, with an endoscopy subscore of greater than or equal to (>=)2. This 54-week study will consist of a 6-week short-term phase and a 48-week long-term phase followed by a study extension (Week 54 to end of study). At Week 58, participants who are eligible will continue receiving golimumab in the study extension. The primary hypothesis is that golimumab is an effective therapy in pediatric UC relative to historical placebo control as assessed by clinical remission based on Mayo score. Safety will be monitored throughout the study.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Group 1: Golimumab
Participants will receive subcutaneous (SC) golimumab through Week 50. Doses will be based on body surface area. After the Week 54 evaluations, at the discretion of investigator, participants benefiting from continued SC golimumab will continue to receive SC golimumab in the extension until end of study.
Drug: Golimumab
Participants receive subcutaneous (SC) golimumab through Week 50, where doses will be based on body surface area. After the Week 54 evaluations, at the discretion of investigator, participants benefiting from continued SC golimumab will continue to receive SC golimumab in the extension until end of study.

Experimental: Group 2: Infliximab
Participants will receive infliximab intravenous (IV) through Week 46. Doses will be based on body weight. After the Week 54 evaluations, participants receiving infliximab will be withdrawn from study participation and transition to local standard of care which may include continued commercially available infliximab at the discretion of their physician.
Drug: Infliximab

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical Remission at Week 6 as Assessed by the Mayo Score [ Time Frame: At Week 6 ]
    Clinical remission is defined as a Mayo score less than or equal to (<=) 2 points, with no individual sub score greater than (>) 1. The Mayo score consists of 4 sub scores (stool frequency, rectal bleeding, endoscopy findings, and physician's global assessment), each of which is rated on a scale from 0 to 3, indicating normal to severe activity. The total score is calculated as the sum of the 4 sub scores and values range from 0 to 12. A score of 3 to 5 points indicates mildly active disease; a score of 6 to 10 indicates moderately active disease; and a score of 11 to 12 indicates severe disease.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical Response at Week 6 as Assessed by the Mayo Score [ Time Frame: At Week 6 ]
    Clinical response is defined as a decrease from baseline in the Mayo score of >=30 percent (%) and >=3 points, with either a decrease from baseline in the rectal bleeding subscore of >=1 or a rectal bleeding subscore of 0 or 1. The Mayo score consists of 4 sub scores (stool frequency, rectal bleeding, endoscopy findings, and physician's global assessment), each of which is rated on a scale from 0 to 3, indicating normal to severe activity. The total score is calculated as the sum of the 4 sub scores and values range from 0 to 12. A score of 3 to 5 points indicates mildly active disease; a score of 6 to 10 indicates moderately active disease; and a score of 11 to 12 indicates severe disease.

  2. Clinical Remission at Week 6 as Assessed by the Pediatric Ulcerative Colitis Activity Index Score (PUCAI) Score [ Time Frame: At Week 6 ]
    Clinical remission is defined as a PUCAI score <10. The PUCAI is a noninvasive measure of ulcerative colitis (UC) disease activity. It comprises 6 scales and total score ranges between 0 and 85 points. The scales are: abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, stool consistency, number of stools, nocturnal bowel movement, and activity level. The PUCAI total score is calculated as the sum of the 6 subscores. Higher scores indicate a more severe disease.

  3. Endoscopic Healing at Week 6 [ Time Frame: At Week 6 ]
    Endoscopic healing is defined as an endoscopy subscore of the Mayo score of 0 (normal or inactive disease) or 1 (mild disease).

  4. Clinical Remission at Week 54 as Assessed by the PUCAI Score [ Time Frame: At Week 54 ]
    Clinical remission is defined as a PUCAI score <10. The PUCAI is a noninvasive measure of UC disease activity. It comprises 6 scales and total score ranges between 0 and 85 points. The scales are: abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, stool consistency, number of stools, nocturnal bowel movement, and activity level. The PUCAI total score is calculated as the sum of the 6 subscores. Higher scores indicate a more severe disease.

  5. Endoscopic Healing at Week 54 [ Time Frame: At Week 54 ]
    Endoscopic healing is defined as an endoscopy subscore of the Mayo score of 0 (normal or active disease) or 1 (mild disease).
