Brief Summary The purpose of this study is to evaluate the combined remission of complex perianal fistulas, defined as the clinical assessment at Week 24 of closure of all treated external openings that were draining at baseline despite gentle finger compression, and absence of collections greater than (>) 2 centimeter (cm) (in at least 2 dimensions) confirmed by blinded central magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) assessment at Week 24.
Detailed Description

This study is to assess the efficacy and safety of Cx601, eASC, for the treatment of complex perianal fistulas in participants with Crohn's disease.

The study will enroll approximately 600 participants.

  • Cx601 eASCs intralesional injection
  • Placebo - Cx601 placebo-matching eASCs intralesional injection

Study treatments will be allocated, on a 1:1 ratio, by central randomization through interactive web response system (IWRS). The study will follow an add-on design, participants receiving any ongoing concomitant medical treatment, at stable doses at the time of screening, for the CD will be allowed to continue it throughout the study.

The primary efficacy analysis, will be conducted at Week 24 timepoint. The double blind design will be maintained up to Week 52 (both participant and investigator) by a specific blinding for study treatment administration and for evaluating its efficacy.

This multicenter trial will be conducted globally across 150 centers. The overall time to participate in this study is approximately 5 years.

  4. Presence of complex perianal fistula(s) with a maximum of 2 internal openings and a maximum of 3 external openings based on clinical assessment; a central reading of a locally performed contrast enhanced (gadolinium) pelvic MRI will be performed to confirm location of the fistula and potential associated perianal abscess(es). Fistula(s) must have been draining for at least 6 weeks prior to Screening visit. Actively draining simple subcutaneous fistula(s), at the time of Screening visit, are not allowed in this study. A complex perianal fistula is defined as a fistula that meets one or more of the following criteria :

    • High inter-sphincteric, high trans-sphincteric, extra-sphincteric or suprasphincteric.
    • Presence of >=2 external openings.
    • Associated perianal abscess(es). Note: Abscesses that are larger than 2 cm at least 2 dimensions on MRI must be confirmed to have been drained adequately by the surgeon during the preparation curettage in order to be eligible.
  5. Clinically controlled, nonactive or mildly active CD, during the last six months prior to Screening visit with:

    • A patient reported outcomes (PRO-2) score <14 at Screening, AND
    • A colonoscopy documenting the absence of ulcers larger than 0.5 cm in the colonic mucosa:

      - If colonoscopy data are not available within 6 months prior to Screening:

    • A simple endoscopic score for Crohn's Disease (SES-CD) <=6 with absence of rectal ulcers larger than 0.5 cm must be documented in a colonoscopy performed at Screening before randomization.

      - If colonoscopy data are available within 6 months prior to Screening, the following must be documented, otherwise a new colonoscopy (as above) will be mandatory:

    • The absence of ulcers larger than 0.5 cm in the colonic mucosa AND
    • the improvement or no worsening in abdominal pain and/or in the diarrhea, sustained for one week or more, since the last colonoscopy was performed in the clinical records until Screening visit.

    AND

    o No hemoglobin decrease >=2.0 gram per deciliter (g/dL) or an unexplained rising C-reactive protein (CRP), > 5.0 milligram per liter (mg/L) to a concentration above the referenced upper limit of normal (ULN) (unless the rise is due to a known process other than luminal Crohn's Disease), since the last colonoscopy was performed as compared to results during the Screening visit.

    AND

    o no initiation or intensification of treatment with corticosteroids, immunosuppressants or monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) dose regimen since the last endoscopy up to Screening visit.
