Are you living with Crohn's Disease?

The GALAXI Study - A clinical trial to assess the safety and effectiveness of a new drug for Crohn’s Disease

We are looking for people with Crohn's Disease to participate in a study to determine the safety and effictiveness of a new study medication, guselkumab.

Guselkumab is made in the laboratory and is a fully human monoclonal antibody. An antibody is something that targets and kills foreign objects in the body - in this case, small proteins that are released by cells and affect the behaviour of other cells. This antibody, guselkumab, recognizes and blocks a specific small protein, IL-23, which is important in immune and inflammatory processes.

Anticipated date that enrolment will close: 31 December 2022
