About the CONCLUDE programThe phase III program CONCLUDE is evaluating cobitolimod as a novel treatment for patients with moderate to severe left-sided ulcerative colitis and consists of two sequential induction studies which both feed into a maintenance study, in which patients who have responded to cobitolimod as induction therapy, receive maintenance treatment with cobitolimod or placebo for approximately one year. Induction Study 1 will include approximately 440 patients and is evaluating two doses, 250 mg and 500 mg, given at baseline and week 3, in an adaptive study design. When 30% of the patients have completed Induction Study 1 with eligible data for the primary endpoint at week 6, an analysis will be performed to select the best dose of 250 mg and 500 mg cobitolimod. The analysis will be conducted by a DMC (Data Monitoring Committe) consisting of independent experts in the field, who will, based on pre-specified criteria, recommend which dose to continue with. In addition, the DMC will review the data for safety and futility. To maintain the integrity of the phase III program, the analysis will be completely blinded to InDex, patients and investigators. InDex will only receive information on which dose out of 250 mg and 500 mg cobitolimod that the DMC has recommended and whether the phase III program can proceed. Following the dose selection, new patients entering the study will be treated with the selected dose of cobitolimod or placebo. Upon a positive read-out of Induction Study 1, InDex plans to initiate Induction Study 2.
