  1. Data are number (%) or number (incidence per 100 patient-years). In the analysis of the entire study period, the secukinumab groups include any patients who received the stated dose of secukinumab, including those who were randomly assigned to the placebo group at baseline and who underwent a second randomization to active treatment at week 16/24
  2. AE adverse event, IBD inflammatory bowel disease, N number of patients, SD standard deviation
  3. aExposure-adjusted incidence rates were not calculated for discontinuations because of AEs and death
  4. bTwo deaths reported in the secukinumab 150 mg group: one due to pancreatic carcinoma and one due to small cell lung cancer on day 173 and day 227, respectively
  5. cThe most common AEs are reported as the preferred terms from the Medical Dictionary for Regulatory Activities and occurred at an incidence of at least 5 per 100 patient-years in the pooled secukinumab group during the entire treatment period
