What is a clinical research study?
•• A clinical research study evaluates an investigational drug or device tosee if it’s safe and effective before it’s made available to the public.
•• All approved medications, even over-the-counter cold and painmedications, have been tested in clinical research studies.
•• All clinical research studies involving investigational drugs or devices are monitored by ethics review boards to protect the safety of all participants.
•• Government regulatory agencies review the results of research studies to decide if the investigational drugs or devices are safe and effective andshould be made available
About the investigational drug
•• The investigational drug, LY3074828 is an antibody made in a laboratory that’s intended to neutralize a chemical in the body that causes inflammation, thereby reducing the symptoms of Crohn’s disease.
•• The investigational drug and the placebo will be given to you by injection under the skin and intravenously (using an IV).
•• The study drug will be given to you only during this study and not after the study is over.
What’s the purpose of this study?
•• This study will assess how well LY3074828, the investigational study drug, can reduce the symptoms of Crohn’s disease.–– “Investigational” means that the study drug is currently being tested and isn’t approved for use by the public.
•• In this study, LY3074828 will be compared with a placebo. A placebo looks like the study drug but doesn’t contain any drug. Researchers use a placebo to see if the study drug works better than not taking anything.
