This Phase III, randomized, double-blind, parallel-grouped, placebo-controlled, multicenter study will investigate the efficacy and safety of etrolizumab in maintenance of remission in participants with moderately to severely active UC who are naive to TNF inhibitors and refractory to or intolerant of prior immunosuppressant and/or corticosteroid treatment.

Open to people ages 18-80

  • Diagnosis of ulcerative colitis (UC) established at least 3 months prior to Day 1 by clinical and endoscopic evidence
  • Moderately to severely active UC as determined by an MCS of 6-12 with an endoscopic subscore greater than or equal to (≥)2 as determined by the central reading procedure (endoscopy to be performed 4-16 days prior to Day 1), a rectal bleeding subscore ≥1, and a stool frequency subscore ≥1 during the screening period (prior to Day 1)
  • Evidence of UC extending a minimum of 20 centimeters (cm) from the anal verge as determined by baseline endoscopy (flexible sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy) performed during screening, 4-16 days prior to Day 1
  • Naive to treatment with any anti-TNF therapy
  • Participants must have had an inadequate response, loss of response, or intolerance to prior corticosteroid and/or immunosuppressant treatment
  • Background regimen for UC may include oral 5-aminosalicylate (5-ASA), oral corticosteroids, budesonide, probiotics, azathioprine (AZA), 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP), or methotrexate (MTX) if doses have been stable during the screening period
  • Use of highly effective contraception
  • Must have received a colonoscopy within the past year or be willing to undergo a colonoscopy in lieu of a flexible sigmoidoscopy at screening
