Higher Infliximab Trough Levels Are Associated With Better Outcome in Paediatric Patients With Inflammatory Bowel Disease. J Crohns Colitis. 2018 Sep 19;: Authors: van Hoeve K, Dreesen E, Hoffman I, Van Assche G, Ferrante M, Gils A, Vermeire S Abstract Background: The role of therapeutic drug monitoring for infliximab [IFX] therapy in children with inflammatory bowel disease [IBD] is poorly investigated. We determined if IFX exposure correlates with long-term remission in children. Methods: In this retrospective study, all children with Crohn’s disease [CD] and ulcerative colitis [UC], receiving maintenance IFX…

Meta-Analysis: The Influence of Preoperative Infliximab Use on Postoperative Complications of Crohn’s Disease.

Meta-Analysis: The Influence of Preoperative Infliximab Use on Postoperative Complications of Crohn’s Disease. Inflamm Bowel Dis. 2018 Jul 24;: Authors: Xu Y, Yang L, An P, Zhou B, Liu G Abstract Background: Infliximab (IFX) is a breakthrough treatment for refractory Crohn’s disease (CD) whose effect on postoperative complications of CD remains controversial. The purpose of this study was to conduct a meta-analysis examining the effect of IFX on postoperative complications of CD. Methods: We searched “PubMed,” “EMBASE,” and “Cochrane Library” databases from inception of each database until March 2018. All…

Drug Survival and Immunogenicity After Switching From Remicade to Biosimilar CT-P13 in Inflammatory Bowel Disease Patients: Two-year Follow-up of a Prospective Observational Cohort Study.

Related Articles Drug Survival and Immunogenicity After Switching From Remicade to Biosimilar CT-P13 in Inflammatory Bowel Disease Patients: Two-year Follow-up of a Prospective Observational Cohort Study. Inflamm Bowel Dis. 2018 Jun 27;: Authors: Smits LJT, van Esch AAJ, Derikx LAAP, Boshuizen R, de Jong DJ, Drenth JPH, Hoentjen F Abstract Background: The infliximab biosimilar has entered daily inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) practice. However, real-life outcomes beyond 1 year after switching are scarce. We aimed to investigate the long-term drug survival, immunogenicity, and pharmacokinetics 2 years after switching to CT-P13 in…

Higher Postinduction Infliximab Serum Trough Levels Are Associated With Healing of Fistulizing Perianal Crohn’s Disease in Children.

Higher Postinduction Infliximab Serum Trough Levels Are Associated With Healing of Fistulizing Perianal Crohn’s Disease in Children. Inflamm Bowel Dis. 2018 Jun 15;: Authors: El-Matary W, Walters TD, Huynh HQ, deBruyn J, Mack DR, Jacobson K, Sherlock ME, Church P, Wine E, Carroll MW, Benchimol EI, Lawrence S, Griffiths AM Abstract Background: There is some evidence in adults that higher serum infliximab (IFX) levels are needed to adequately treat fistulizing perianal Crohn’s disease (CD). However, data in children are lacking. We aimed to determine postinduction serum trough IFX levels that…

Inflamm Bowel Dis. 2018 Jun 02;: Authors: Lega S, Phan BL, Rosenthal CJ, Gordon J, Haddad N, Pittman N, Benkov KJ, Dubinsky MC Abstract Background: Infliximab (IFX) discontinuation is not uncommon during the first year of treatment due to inadequate drug concentrations and anti-IFX antibodies (ATI). Both combination therapy and proactive therapeutic drug monitoring (pTDM) are used to decrease ATI and increase IFX durability. We proposed that monotherapy (Mono) is as effective as combination therapy (Combo)…
