  6. CDEIS and SES-CD correlation among those Subjects Who Undergo Colonoscopy [ Time Frame: 16 and 52 weeks ]
    Correlation between the change from baseline in the endoscopic index (∆SES-CD) and the clinical index (∆CDAI) after 16 and 52 weeks of treatment

  7. Endoscopic Changes in Those Subjects Who Undergo Colonoscopy [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
    Comparison of success rates of (∆CDEIS) defined by 25% and by 50% improvements in SES-CD vs CDAI defined response

  8. Change in Inflammatory Bowel Disease Quality of Life [ Time Frame: 16, 26 and 52 weeks ]
    Change in Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (IBDQ) and Short Form 36 (SF-36)

  9. Change in inflammatory markers [ Time Frame: Baseline through 52 weeks ]
    Changes from baseline in a serum markers of inflammation: C-reactive Protein (CRP) and fecal calprotectin

  10. Number of subjects with adverse events as a measure of safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
    Comparison of adverse events and serious adverse events in the active therapy arm throughout the study compared to the placebo controlled arm.
